Vatican vs. Me

The Vatican (as reported by Reuters):

The Vatican newspaper said on Tuesday that homosexuality risked "destabilizing people and society," had no social or moral value and could never match the importance of the relationship between a man and a woman.


"The segmentation of people based on their sexual preference destabilizes people and society, has no social or moral value, and could never match the importance of minding your own business."

Look, the Vatican obviously has a PR problem, what with the naughty priest scandals and all.  But pinning the blame on homosexuality doesn’t address the issue.  The problem with naughty priests was not about homosexuality per se, but child abuse.  If the Vatican wants to change its standards for the priesthood viz a viz homosexuality, that’s their business.  But let’s not cast aspersions on an entire lifestyle.
