Two homophobic, closed-minded, bigoted, anti-gay Catholic priests walk into a bar ...

Regardless of how down you're feeling, you know you can always count on the Catholic Church to lower even further your opinion of your species. From this morning's Mop and Pail, we have Canada's top Roman Catholic cardinal, Marc Ouellet:

Once the state imposes a new standard affirming that homosexual sexual behaviour is a social good, those who oppose it for religious motives or motives of conscience will be considered as bigots, anti-gay and homophobes, and then risk prosecution.

Yeah, and how unfair would that be? To be considered an anti-gay bigot just because you're, well, bigoted against gays. How cruel.

To be fair, though, I think maybe it really is time to follow the Church's lead and return same-sex relations to where they rightfully belong -- between priests and their altar boys. Ah, for the good old days of traditional moral values.

I love the implicit straw man with which Ouellet opens this comment. Is anyone claiming that "homosexual sexual behavior is a social good?"

Last I checked, homosexual sexual behavior happened between two people. "Society" is not impacted in any way.

Generally discouraging individual human beings from abusing other individual human beings for any reason... now THAT is a social good. So except for the straw man, I guess I don't see any part of that statement I find objectionable.
