Ah, what a wonderful last few weeks in the world of religion and politics. First, the Nazi Youth Pope Ratzinger receives word that the cover is blown on the fact that more than half of the Cardinals in the Vatican are openly gay, frequenting gay prostitutes and gay clubs, and paying for it with money embezzled from the Vatican Bank, and so Popesey abruptly resigns upon reading the report. Worse yet, the report will eventually reveal that the Pope and his cute hunk of man, Archbishop Georg (Gay Org), are implicated in the cover-up and were targets of implicit if not overt extortion to enable others to continue to plunder the Vatican’s coffers to fuel their gay sexcipades. Even as the papal selection committee begins to convene, even more of these cardinals are now being outed—and it seems that uniformly it is the most noxious homophobic assholes who turn out to be closeted homosexuals who abuse their power to force themselves on underlings.
In similar news, in contrast to many protestations to the contrary, conservative Catholic/Christian anti-gay “researcher” Mark Regnerus came out of the closet as an overt anti-gay activist. Despite repeated claims that his research meant nothing for issues like Prop 8 or DOMA, Marky Mark filed an amicus brief, along with Byron Johnson (another anti-gay “researcher” who has published next to nothing yet still holds a distinguished research professorship at Baylor), arguing that DOMA and Prop 8 should be upheld. Yeah. I know Byron from Vanderbilt days, and we used to have lunch regularly. I couldn’t quite figure out why he was there given that he’d never published anything. But, he did have a direct line to money from Sir John (he always called him Sir John) Templeton. His Mercedes was always spotless, I should add. I’m just going to post both of their glamour shots, without further comment.
