Can we go just one flipping week without an ignorant bigot eruption from one of Papa Ratzi’s boyz?
Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan, a Mexican cardinal and emeritus president of the Pontifical Council for Pastoral Health (1996-2009), has said in an interview with Pontifex, that homosexuals and transvestites “will never enter into the reign of God,” appealing to St. Paul. “[T]rans e omosessuali non entreranno mai nel Regno dei Cieli, e non lo dico io, ma San Paolo.” Later in the interview he says that he believes homosexuals are not born that way but become that.
As Andrew Sullivan observes, this cleric’s BS isn’t even in alignment with Catholic doctrine. The Prada-loving Pope, btw, has yet to say anything about the eliminationist legislation in Uganda.
In direct violation of Catholic doctrine, a leading cardinal has insisted that being gay is a choice and that those who choose to be gay are thereby excluded from God’s kingdom. Benedict’s church is slowly reversing the reforms of the 1970s that saw gay persons as made in the image of God and inherently not sinful, as long as they remained celibate and lived alone their entire lives.
It began with Benedict’s own policy of insisting that even celibate gays cannot become priests because they are mentally or psychologically “disordered.” The creation of a class of sub-human humans – the early medieval Catholic approach to Jews and sodomites – is making a comeback.ADVERTISEMENT
One also notes that the new Ugandan bill that would begin to treat gays as sub-human threats to be identified, informed on, jailed and executed has met no resistance from Pope Benedict XVI. Since the largest religious group in Uganda is Catholic, one has to take Benedict’s silence in the face of this proposed Nazi-style law against homosexuals to be consent.
Since Cardinal Barragan is so certain about our fate, has he given any thought to the destiny of the child-raping priests and the criminal enterprise of bishops and cardinals that shuttled them around to new environs to continue their pedophile activity?

Diocese Pays $200,000 To Clergy Abuse Victim
Lawyer Says Victim Was Molested In Church RectoryADVERTISEMENT
A lawyer has confirmed that the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland made a $200,000 settlement on Nov. 5 with his client, who said she was molested by a priest in 1976 in the rectory of St. Michael’s Church in South Berwick.
The priest was the Rev. James Vallely, said attorney Mitchell Garabedian, of Boston. The victim, who lives outside of New England, was 11 years old at the time and one of the first female altar servers in the state.
…Garabedian said that Vallely, who is deceased, served in parishes in Sheridan, Waterville, Machias, Limestone, Portland, South Portland and South Berwick. He added that secrecy was a common thread in clergy abuse cases, from supervisors of priests to any disciplinary action.
Ted Cruz defends Trump by comparing him to Twitter trolls who tell him to go back to Canada
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday issued an unusual defense of President Donald Trump's racist remarks against four Democratic congresswomen by comparing the president to an internet troll.
According to Politico reporter Burgess Everett, Cruz deflected criticism of Trump's racist tweets against Reps. Rashiba Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) by arguing that "lefties on Twitter every day" tell him to "go back" to Canada, where he was born in 1970.
Senators press Facebook on ‘trust’ in hearing on digital currency
US senators Tuesday questioned whether Facebook can be trusted with a massive financial responsibility at the first public hearing on its plan for a global digital currency called Libra.
The lawmakers added to criticism of the plan unveiled by Facebook last month with two dozen partners on the digital coin, touted as a way to lower costs and facilitate cross-border money transfers.
David Marcus, Facebook's executive heading the digital coin effort, defended the plan during more than two hours at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Libra, pledging to comply with all regulations to thwart money laundering and criminal activity.
Mitch McConnell: AOC started Trump’s racist tweets by calling detention centers ‘concentration camps’
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday refused to condemn the President of the United States for sending racist tweets in which he told four non-white congresswomen to "go back" to their countries of origin.
McConnell spoke on the matter at a press conference, but he did not explicitly rebuke President Donald Trump.
"There's been a lot of discussion about the events of the last couple days, I'd like to address it myself," McConnell volunteered. "I think there's been a consensus that political rhetoric has really gotten way way overheated all across the political spectrum."
