Vatican wants gays to be criminals — and apparently think it’s okay when nations execute gays

There is no level of gay-bashing to which the Catholic Church will not stoop. Via Think Progress, we learn that the Vatican opposes a U.N. resolution that would urge nations to de-criminalize homosexuality:

The Vatican is drawing criticism from gay rights groups and newspapers editorials after Archbishop Celestino Migliore, the Vatican’s permanent observer to the United Nations, told a French Catholic news service that the Vatican opposes “a proposed U.N. resolution calling on governments worldwide to de-criminalise homosexuality.” Migliore claimed that the resolution “would create new and implacable discriminations” against opponents of same-sex marriage.

The resolution has nothing to do with marriage. It’s aimed, in part, at nations that kill gays. Killing gays. How Christian. That should make the Prada wearing Pope very proud.

The Catholics are now in some weird competition with their new friends, the Mormons, to see which church can bash gays more. Of course, both churches should spend more time preventing young children from being molested by church leaders, but that’s another story.

The Vatican and its U.S. subsidiary couldn’t be bigger hypocrites when it comes to the gays. There are plenty of gays in the Catholic Church, including a lot right here in D.C. Some of them aren’t too subtle about it, either. That may explain why the Catholic leadership spends so much time thinking about all things gay. It’s a very familiar subject.
