Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi, for his part, said gays can have their rights protected by means other than through legal marital recognition. He stressed that children should have a right to say they have a father and a mother.
“If not, then why not contemplate freely chosen polygamy, and naturally so as to not discriminate, polyandry?” he asked sarcastically. Polyandry is when a woman has two or more husbands.
When you rape children, cover it, rape them again, cover it up, rape them again, finally get caught, still cover it up, apologize, recant your apology, then blame the victim, you have zero moral authority to lecture others about their supposed sins.
I do not understand why some group of normal Catholic doesn’t organize against their church’s extremism. Every time the Vatican goes on some new moral jihad, the group should be there challenging their moral authority, their moral deprivation, in every story, at every press conference. But progressive organizations don’t undersand how to win, are afraid of doing what it takes to win, so we get to listen to the Vatican’s hate, and hypocrisy, unchallenged.
The ultimate irony is that people like the Catholic leadership always used us, gays, of being the ones who are a threat to children. And now we know that the gay-pedophilia link was a lie, but the Vatican-pedophilia link is real.
And to add insult to injury, the Vatican has the nerve to claim that they’re hating on the gays because they’re worried about the best interests of children. These would be the children they’ve been raping for decades. These would be the children whose foster care and adoption services Catholic Charities shut down, or threatened to shut down, in DC, Illinois and Massachusetts because to Catholic leaders hating gays is more important than loving children.
Then again, Catholic leaders aid and abet child rape, so we shouldn’t be surprised if they also have no qualms about leaving their victims parentless.
What I don’t understand is why a group like Catholic Charities is permitted to remain on the board of directors of uber-liberal lead progressive organizations like the Coalition on Human Needs. The Coalition on Human Needs’ membership is a who’s-who of liberal groups in Washington, DC. Groups that seem to have no problem rubbing shoulders with anti-gay and anti-child bigots. Catholic Charities is using children as human shields in its jihad against the civil rights of gays.
Do no liberal groups have a problem with this? Would the Coalition on Human Needs let a racist group, or an anti-Semitic one, or one that bashes Latino, be on its board? Or is the hate only tolerable when it comes from (rich) Catholics?
First, we’ve got the Catholic record of raping children and still to this day not coming clean. Next, we’ve got the Catholic record of gay-bashing. What are the lead liberal children and family organizations doing sitting on a board with, being members of, a group that is so right-wing, so hateful, and so inimical to the interests of children?
Oh, and it gets even better. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops is also on the board of the Coalition on Human Needs. Just in case Catholic Charities’ gay-bashing wasn’t enough for the lead liberal groups in Washington, DC.
Just to be clear, the Catholic Church has still not come fully clean on the child rape scandal. A few recent headlines:
- NYT hits Cardinal Egan for recanting apology over child rape scandal
- Catholic church reportedly castrated boys who reported priest sex abuse
- Report: Pope John Paul II’s Vatican warned Irish bishops not to report child rape

- NY Cardinal says he’s child rape scandal “whipping boy,” as church leaders attack victims
- Pope finds it ‘deplorable’ that Belgian police are actually investigating child rape cases
- Catholic Church accused of making Alaska a ‘pedophile’s paradise’
- Philly Cardinal reportedly ordered shredding of child rape docs
- Vatican abetted cover-up of child rape scandal in Ireland
- Philly child rape trial: Priest joked about raping 3 boys in one week
- Catholic church laments prison term for pedophile-enabler
- New reports finds Vatican abetted cover-up of child rape scandal in Ireland
- High ranking Bishop blames Jews for Pope criticism in child rape scandal
If any other organization in America had engaged in this systematic an abuse of children, and cover up, they’d have been shut down years ago. But in Washington, DC, if you systematically rape children, and continue to cover it up, then take children as political hostages, you get a seat on the board of one of the top liberal children and family coalitions in town.
It looks to me like there are a lot of threats to children, especially in this town – and the gays are the least of them.
