You’re right about that and I was remiss in mentioning it. I’m sorry.

In a similar vein, Ken Wilson and Emily Swan point out that even progressive churches often preach an insidious form of homophobia, though tonight I’m more up in arms over the overt form.

I can’t wrap my mind around people who claim to be progressive but who belong to and support vile homophobic institutions like the Roman Catholic Church. It’s just evil and sickening and horrible beyond words.

That Catholic Church teaches that I’m literally evil and depraved. Yet self-described liberals have no problem being members. I want to spit in their faces so so so so so fucking bad. How dare they belong to a Church that calls me depraved?

I don’t understand. I can’t understand understand. I WON’T understand. I will tell Roman Catholics to go fuck themselves. They’re evil mother fuckers.

Sorry, venting. But I’m really discouraged that this isn’t just OBVIOUS.

How can you be a decent, civil person and support an institution that calls me depraved?

Sigh.

You can’t be. You just can’t.
