Ah yes, passive euthanasia… practiced by most fascist states as an entree to something more active…
Ever notice that the best looking young priests are the ones picked to be Vatican assistants?
And here’s one of the biggest problems with this: now that CC has said they won’t extend bennies to the spouses of ANY new employees, gay OR straight, what’s to say that other denominations won’t follow suit?
Look, peeps, I swear – sometimes I think the best way to follow Jesus is to stay away from all churches at all times in all places.
They’ve been trying that with AIDS for a long time…
There just has to be a backlash now.
Sometimes I do wonder if they do things like this to get the straights to say to the gays: “if it wasn’t for YOU PEOPLE, we’d have our bennies!”
You know…that whole “divide and conquer” idea, which *always works.*
Of course it is, Tracie. That’s part and parcel. Look at how those EEEEEVVVVViiiiiillllll homos are ruining it for everyone!
and think of the children!
This is painfully true, especially for me living in the USA.
Even worse than the “passive euthanasia” is the aggressive killing of gays.
Today I posted an important piece about a gay artist whose paintings confront the homophobia of anti-gay murders. Please check out the powerful art of Matthew Wettlaufer:
That’s Georg, Benny’s boyfriend, Mike.
[Whom, you can best believe, gets the absolute BEST health care EVER!]
Methinks the Diocese of Washington has just increased support for healthcare reform in the U.S.
In Matthew, aren’t we told to “heal the sick”? Since we (and presumably those at the Vatican) aren’t medical professionals, providing benefits is our way of fulfilling that commandment.
