Jean-Claude cardinal Turcotte has just shown that the RCC has not come to grip with its severe case of foot-in-mouth disease. In this story, Montreal’s archbishop claims :
In other words, legalizing gay marriage, will lead to legalizing incest :rolleyes:. By the same way of thinking, we could say that priesthood leads to child molestation. The difference being that with the proposed law, it is an hypothetical situation, while with the child molestation, it is an actual one.
And to continue the fearmongering :
That’s right moron, do what the RCC has been doing best for the last 2 millenias, spread the fear of the unknown.
You know, if it wasn’t revolting enough, it would be pathetically laughable. You and your church have been losing ground here steadily for the last half-century (give or take a decade). You think that’s the way to regain some of that lost ground ? Didn’t the poorly attended prayer vigils held last week-end show you that people are not interested in supporting you in this case ?
The frigging bill has not been written yet. Couldn’t you at least wait until it’s written before making asinine comments ?
Munch, considering the amount of cases in the last ten years involving child molestation by priests inthe US and Canada, I think this comment should be self-explanatory. I didn’t say that all priests were all child molestors, nor did he say that incest will become the norm. I extrapolated the same way he did.
detop, all I’m saying is that your logic in that comment is faulty, regardless of the faulty logic used by Turcotte. He isn’t saying that gay marriage will lead to incest, he’s suggesting that gay marriage will lead to incest marriage (whatever the hell that is). Your analogy just doesn’t fit his analogy. At all.
ok I don’t know WTF is wrong with that jackass but there is absolutely NOTHING intelligent about his comment. How the HELL are gay marriages and INCEST the same or even REMOTELY similar (besides the actual sex act) what the HELL kind of sick fucker is he? I’m bisexual and would NEVER contimplate marrying or having SEX with my daughter. SICK FUCKER. I’m getting REALLY sick of the gay bashing fuckwits saying that allowing gays to be LEGALLY espoused will lead to dog fucking and horse/human marriages. What the holy hell is wrong with you bastards? Can’t someone be happy without you sticking your morality up their asses? JEZUS people just leave the gays alone, let them get married and live their lives in PEACE!!
Well, there’s a risk of birth defects if you marry someone who is a gene carrier for a birth defect, too. Should we make sure those lower forms of life never reproduce?
Seriously, I don’t see why adults should not, by default, be allowed to couple however they see fit. I think marriage is a silly and outdated institution, but if we have legal benefits for non-related gender-crossing relationships it would be only fair to extend the benefits to everyone.
Speaking only to the birth defects part of this post. I thought I remembered an article coming out, oh, maybe a year ago that said the increase in poosible defects was negligible. Let me see if I can find it or I’m imagining things.
Well shit… I’ve been looking for 1/2 an hour and can’t find it. I must be imagining things…
