Reminds me of an old Mickey Gilley tune: The girls all get prettier at closing time.

I had to read and re-read that to realize that I understood his point of view...at first I thought he was being mealy mouthed and trying to attain both sides, then realized it was just the way he quoted someone that was creating the cognitive dissonance I was feeling:

"...Bishop Desmond Tutu, one time Anglican Archbishop in South Africa, who had earlier tasted the sting of racial discrimination, has been a valiant defender of the equality and dignity of GLBTIQ [gay,lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, intersex, and otherwise ‘queer’] people. He has explained that he could no more embrace the hatred and discrimination of Christian brothers and sisters against the sexual minority than he could embrace the racism of apartheid, now overthrown...”

Without realizing it was a quote, I thought he was going the other way.

Yes, we can hate the crime and have compassion for them, but compassion by accepting what they do as normal is not compassion in any way...and he said as much.

Will this priest be disciplined for what he wrote?

Discrimination is Constitutional (Freedom of Association).

The Civil Rights Act was a gigantic communist nose under the tent of freedom - and the RINOs signed on for it.

Just like Ronald gave us Amnesty. With friends like that, who needs DemoKKKrats?

I agree emphatically.

I, a budding science nerd, learned about human sexuality by noting the practical names of male and female electrical plugs, not from my prudish parents.

There is no such thing as a functional form of sexuality between two persons of the same sex (not gender!): It is not homosexuality, it is homoeroticism.

To discriminate means merely to distinguish by discerning or exposing differences or to recognize or identify as separate and distinct. If we never discriminated we’d never be able to drive, use a computer or even read.

Here’s a good article by Walter Williams on discrimination:
