A surprisingly strong comparison. Why do so many self-described "Christians" try to spread hate?
good question, sotek. here in rochester, new york, they don't allow gays in the catholic church, and the local bishop has openly said they will never be "blessed" by the catholic church.
but, once a year, the bishop will go down to the pier on lake ontario and "bless" the boats as they float by, altho i personally believe it's just a show of wealth.
and, once a year, the bishop will hold an annual "bless your pet" day, where people bring every animal imaginable to be "blessed" by the bishop.
now, if the catholic church can find it within themselves to "bless" inanimate objects such as boats, and bless animals, you would think they'd follow their teachings towards fellow human beings and realize that gays are people too.
i think it's comical they way the church carries on and exploits it's hypocrisy. it's not only the catholic church, but all religions act the same way...go figure.
