Five Vigils Planned Today in Front of Catholic Cathedral's Nationwide

Dignity USA, New Ways Ministry, and Call to Action are holding 5 vigils in different cities across the country to protest the Vatican's position to not support a U.N. resolution to decriminalize homosexuality.

Its about the gay community concentrated on more than just the Morons, I mean Mormons! Great news, I wonder how the American Catholics will cry about this one?

If Jesus were actually "God?" He would never allow that heirarchical bunch of closet cases use His Name to be so hateful: that is to stand AGAINST decriminalization of people who were born gay, born gay, as much as some people were born tall or short. If Jesus were God, (should I say if He came back?) his first step would be to "overturn the money changers" in the "so-called temple" His pretend followers have created.... the Vaticant, and defrock that awful pope. Oh, and, I bet that "anonymouse" hater, gay as a goose deep down, so OBSESSED with us "it" is always HERE! is watching and reading, and squirming, and wondering if I am cute? hahahaha

Shit, wish I knew about this. But then I'm not connected to any religious group so that might explain it.

But at the last Prop 8 protest here in Providence, RI I recommended we go on the march and demonstrate in front of the Catholic cathedral here in Providence.

What's the point of supporting this resolution? The Catholic Church is already opposed to any form of human oppression. Passing this law would only serve to elevate gays above regular human beings.

Or is this what they've wanted all along?

Gay activists usually pick "safe" targets. If they tried to pull that in front of any African-American Baptist churches they'd get their butts kicked.
