Cardinal Catholicly Opines on Same-Sex Parents

[Trigger warning: Hate speech]

In response to Mexico City's legalization of same-sex marriage:

"Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez, archbishop of Guadalajara and one of the most senior prelates in the nation, in recent days made especially harsh comments widely seen here as offensive.

Calling same-sex unions an 'aberration,' he said, 'Would you want to be adopted by a pair of faggots or lesbians?'"

Also in response to legal same-sex marriage, Mexico's Roman Catholic Archdiocese claimed that such laws "do worse damage than drug trafficking."

Natch, he did not provide evidence in support of this claim.

In related news, the mayor of Mexico City is suing the cardinal for slander for having also claimed that the mayor accepted bribes in exchange for support for same-sex marriage.

I will file these latest incidents away as further proof that stubborn attachment to religious dogma, in this case the idea that homosexuality is wrong, takes the faithful further from, rather than closer to, god.
