You gotta love the Roman Catholic Church. In its long and glorious history of stewardship over the Supreme and Eternal Truth, it has tortured heretics and burned them at the stake, thrown the Jews out of Spain, slaughtered Muslims, massacred Protestants, forced girls to bear children conceived in incestuous rape, supported dictators and wars of imperialism, and facilitated the rise of European fascism, all in the name of the Prince of Peace.These days, of course, we're all much too genteel to countenance (most of) this sort of thing. Instead, the Pope calls gay people a threat to the environment and an obstacle on the road to peace, and says gay parents do "violence" to their kids, and then. like the Captain in Casablanca, is shocked, shocked when LGBT people are raped, beaten, and murdered around the world on a regular basis.
