3 ways for Cardinal Dolan to show his 'love' for gay people

LGBT people are rightly getting tired of merely hearing of this so-called “love” from the Roman Catholic hierarchy, among other places. Especially when this “love” is followed by rejected calls for conversation, and no attempt at understanding, as it always has been.

Religion News Summary: Supreme Court, Rainbow House, and Nicholas Coppola

Op-ed: Guess What - We're the Oppressors

Did you know that the LGBT community is oppressing Christians?

I know, I know, you may think that the sentence should be the other way around, given 2,000 years of institutionalized homophobia, burning [queer men] at the feet of [queer women], and preaching that love is an abomination.

But according to a well-coordinated, well-funded campaign, actually the gays are oppressing conservative Christians, you see, because we’re not letting them discriminate against us.
