Have I slipped into Opposite World today?


So, on the one hand, the Catholic church is EXTORTING Washington, DC by threatening to pull all of its public services if same sex marriage is approved, impacting one third of DC's homeless (the majority of whom are ostensibly heterosexual, it should be noted), as well as other services.

Let's read that again - THE CATHLOLIC CHURCH IS BLACKMAILING THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AT THE EXPENSE OF THE PEOPLE IT PURPORTS TO CARE ABOUT.

Let that sink in for a bit.

Meanwhile, on the other hand, the Mormon Church gave its full support to an equal rights bill in Salt Lake City that bans discrimination against gays and lesbians in housing and employment, and it was passed unanimously by lawmakers. WTF is up with that?

Of course, the ordinances had to include very specific language that clearly exempted THEM from being affected by the law, but, hey, it's a step in the right direction, right? So let's just forget the MILLIONS OF DOLLARS they threw at California to ban gay marriages there (which, of course, they're still against), m'kay? THANKS!

BIZARRO WORLD OMG!
