    The more this cabal of perverts and pedophiles does to alienate itself from the rest of the world, the better the world will be.

    The Diocese in D.C. was in a pickle. Defy the poop, I mean Pope, or to get drug into a list of civil suits. The easy out was to not provide benefits to anyone.

    This is yet another argument for why we should have universal health care as all regular countries do. The U.S. is the ONLY 1'st world country that doesn't. Health care should NOT be tied to our jobs, causing "job lock", and killing the backs of small employers. Instead, everyone should have a single provider. The current system is ruining the playing field for small business, denies folks early treatment, and / or benefits, keeps folks from evolving their careers, and lets folks like those with false belief systems do this sort of crap. No person should have to work for assholes because they are scared of losing their health care.

    I don't think the church did this to be vindictive. I think they did it because if they did it based on sexual preference there would be no way to defend that discrimination in court, and, they knew it.

    Health care IS, in regular places, a given, just like police, fire, schools, libraries, and highways. Only here do we treat our citizens worse than our buildings and our pets. That's, very much indeed, telling about our greed as a people and how we view our fellow country man and how we allow corporations to exploit us for maximum profit instead of doing the right thing.

    Correct me if I'm wrong Chuck, but I believe did not do the the same in Mass and other states that have allowed gay marriage -- they did stop some adoption agencies in Mass, but I'm pretty sure they are still giving out benefits to spouses in the state.

    Great! The more the church removes itself from relevance, the more people will see real charity.

    What will the Catholic Church do next to try to deny gays? I heard they got out of the adoption business in Massachusetts because they don't want gays to adopt any children.

    Oh that pesky Pope (Catholics). I mean he's going to H3LL but is he trying to go to the Walmart H3LL.? This sounds like something Walmart would do. Oh well.

    Their trade is hate, bigotry and hypocrisy, so this move is entirely consistent with that.

    Wow thats pretty nasty, shows them for what they really are...

    And on the other side of the spectrum, we got companies like Google offering to pay their gay employees more to make up for benefits they do not qualify for that straight couples do.

    Just couldnt leave with that bad taste in my mouth so I thought I would share something positive.
