Fred Phelps Will Picket Mississippi High School Graduation and Other Idiotic Things

Fred "God Hates Fags" Phelps and his cult will picket the high school graduation ceremonies of Itawamba Agricultural High School in Mississippi.  The school gained notoriety when an openly lesbian student wanted to attend the prom.  The school refused to allow her to attend the prom with her girlfriend and after the student,
Constance McMillen, filed suit against the school district, they canceled the prom.  It was an ugly incident at best and now the Phleps hate cult will make things uglier.

In a statement Phelps "church" said in an interview with the NY Daily News they will "...picket the graduation of Itawamba Agricultural High School to remind the parents, teachers and students of this nation that God said 'Thou shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is abomination,'" 

Well I have a message for Rev. Phelps and his band of bigots.  The Bible says absolutely nothing about lesbians!  Biblical literalism indeed, bullshit!

Another Pedophile Priest

It has been a really bad century so far for the Catholic church.  The latest bad news come from Brazil, where a 74 year old priest has been arrested on charges of pedophilia.  Eight children, aged 12-16 in his church have come forward with accusations.

At least this tie the priest was suspended pending outcome of the trial.

Hooray! We're Cured! California Removes "homosexuality" as a Disease

In 1950 the state of California, in response to a child molestation case involving the murder of a 6 year old girl, decided that "Homosexuals" were the cause.  Go figure?

In response the legislature passed a law declaring gays to be "sexual deviants" and goes on to require that the state explore the causes and possible cure for homosexuality

I suspect this law and others like it are part of what tied, at least in the public mind, homosexuality with child abuse.  Of course it didn't matter that the child was a girl and the abuser was a man....blame the gays!

Well the law was finally repealed, 60 years later in a unanimous vote.  Whoopee, we're cured!
