They've Done It Again
Although not a big news item, the Vatican just gave us another slap in the face. Purporting to be against hate and discrimination, but taking every opportunity to show and do the opposite, the Vatican is opposing a United Nations (non-binding) resolution that would decriminalize homosexuality. The resolution is being proposed by the French delegation on the 60th anniversary of the UN's declaration of Human Rights. My take on this event is personal, as personal as a slap on the face can be. Can anyone wonder why we refuse to keep turning the other cheek?
