Treating Sick and "Troubled" People With Dignity

Is only remarkable if your default position is that such people don't deserve dignity.

My observation is in response to a glowing National Organization for [Heterosexual] Marriage (NOM) promotion of an article written by someone who supposedly witnessed Antonin Scalia being kind to a woman at his church who had "sores" on her body and who "behaved strangely, [and seemed like] a troubled person that you meet in large cities and quickly walk away from."

While we're on the topic, I'm mystified why purportedly great male leaders like the Pope always get big time props for, every now and again, being kind to people with leprosy. He's the fucking Pope. He should be nice to people.


Actually, I'm not mystified by the phenomenon at all. This is men we're talking about. Obviously the bar is very low for what behavior they can engage in while still being thought of as leadership material.

Chris Christie is all of us right now saying "WTF."
 Just kidding. He's awful too.
