U.S. Conference Of Catholic Bishops Says ENDA "Legally Affirms" Adultery

We're used to the "slippery slope" argument from the likes of bigots like Cardinal Timothy Dolan and his U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, but the creativity and hoops they jump through to compare LGBT-inclusive ENDA to legal adultery is quite impressive indeed. 

In a statement released yesterday following the Senate's vote on cloture, the USCCB writes that ENDA "does not justly advance the dignity of all workers and authentic non-discrimination." They go on to write that the proposed law “elevates ‘sexual orientation’ discrimination … to the same and, until now unique, level as race discrimination, and above religion, sex, and national origin discrimination.”

And then the whopper of WTF:

According to the nation's top homophobic Catholic leaders, ENDA includes a "vague definition of ‘sexual orientation,'" and "would encompass sexual conduct outside of marriage, thus legally affirming and specially protecting that conduct.”

Whew. They must be tired from all that logical hoop jumping work.

I go back to the words of the Holy Father, Pope Francis, paraphrasing and I hope I get this right, God will pass judgment on this issue of homosexuality, while the Pope and Princes of the Church continue to pray for them.
We hate the sin, and love the sinner! Sex is so very much of who we are AND not all Christians can go forth and multiply. Yet many of our brothers and sisters adopt to in some way fulfill there purpose, and for the adopted children, who could be out on the street, hustling for food, clothing and most of all the innate desire in all of us TO BE LOVED!  Some of the comments before mine are harsh, mean spirited,and quite frankly, needed to be said. Cool heads will prevail and we will all get through this and learn that they are many reasonable options to choose from.

THE BISHOP IS CORRECT.   NO  LIBERAL WANTS ANY RULES,   NO MORALS , JUST FUCKING ANYONE, AT ANY TIME  AND ANY PERVERSION.  :)  

The Church of the Boy Molesters speaks out again!

P.S. This is not what the Pope, your boss, told you to do.

Tax the parasites, or do not tax me government. Choose. They have NO say in secular laws, I do. The government is required by law to listen to me over them especially when it has to do with my rights. CHOOSE! My money or their illegal violation of the first amendment forcing, requiring and demanding the American people adhere to the U.S Cult of "Catholic" Bigots religious beliefs and definitions against our will. The SECULAR Constitution is the law, NOTHING else. These Bishops better start respecting the law or they can move to the Vatican willingly or be force - their choice.

U.S. constitution says: WE DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOUR RELIGION,

I have always found it odd that men who have sworn off sex feel they are the most qualified to give advice about it.

AMEN!!!!!!! Preach!!!!!!!

Two words: screw you, archbishop. So much for your church preaching love toward mankind. :)
