Vatican Says It’s Not a Crime to Love … Other Men
The Vatican has issued a statement that homosexuality should not be a crime. They added a big “but” to the statement, though: that the still aren’t equal, and that putting all forms of sexual orientation on the same level would be wrong. Personally, I think they added the last part just so you know don’t get the wrong idea and think the Vatican’s gay.
Almost every press release the Vatican puts out is depressing. They sometimes gets so close to being good people, but then they let the whole point just kind of slip through their fingers. It seems theirs intentions are well guided, though. Homosexuality is still a crime in many countries. Unfortunately, I don’t think that any of those countries are ones that would pay much attention to what the Catholic Church has to say about the matter.
Well, at least they used the scientifically backed word “sexual orientation” in their press release, instead of the old blame game word of “choice”.
And, who knows, perhaps they’re working in stages. They may have a master plan designed to slowly move people toward a more loving and tolerant attitude one decade at a time.
