Vatican launches attack on U.S. nuns for not being homophobic

Posted about the Vatican attack on the U.S. nuns for not being anti-gay enough at AMERICAblog. To complete the homophobic circle, the Archbishop of Seattle, J. Peter Sartain, who is leading the jihad against the nuns, is also leading the effort to repeal Washington State’s new marriage equality law. But, this past weekend, a number of parishes rejected the Archbishop’s edict to collect signatures for an anti-marriage referendum. In fact, via Igor Volsky at Think Progress, we learned that one Catholic priest got a standing ovation from his parishioners by announcing he wouldn’t participate in the effort to gather signatures for an anti-marriage petition.
