Catholic archbishop of Chicago compares gay Pride to the Klan

Speaking on behalf of a church that aided and abetted pedophilia for decades, and still refuses to come clean (what was the Pope’s involvement, for example?), Chicago’s Cardinal Francis George has zero moral authority to lecture anyone.  It seems the Catholic church is worried that a gay pride route in Chicago goes near their church.  Yes, and now we’re supposed to cut off public streets to gay people because of the church’s bigotry?  Via HuffPost:

“I go with the pastor,” George told Fox. “He’s telling us that he won’t be able to have services on Sunday if that’s the case. You don’t want the gay liberation movement to morph into something like the Ku Klux Klan, demonstrating in the streets against Catholicism.”

When the Fox host pointed out that George’s comparison was “a little strong,” the cardinal stood by his statement.

“It is, but you take a look at the rhetoric,” he continued. “The rhetoric of the Klu Klux Klan, the rhetoric of some of the gay liberation people. Who is the enemy? Who is the enemy? The Catholic Church.”

Using the cardinal’s logic: The rhetoric of the Ku Klux Klan, the rhetoric of the Nazis, the rhetoric of the Catholic Church. Who is the enemy? Who is the enemy? The gays.

I’m sorry, but I just don’t care what people who enable the rape of small children have to say about much of anything.
