Oh fuck you, Cardinal Bertone

"Many psychologists, many psychiatrists have demonstrated that there is no relationship between celibacy and paedophilia but many others have demonstrated, I was told recently, that there is a relationship between homosexuality and paedophilia," he said. "That is true. I have the documents of the psychologists. That is the problem."

EXCUSE ME!?

Though I have to say...good on France.

"This is an unacceptable linkage and we condemn this," foreign ministry spokesman Bernard Valero told reporters in Paris. "France is firmly engaged in the struggle against discrimination and prejudice linked to sexual orientation and gender identity."

The attempt to link homosexuality with paedophilia was a "dramatic confession of weakness [betraying] the confused state in which the Catholic Church now finds itself," Mr Merlo added.


If someone is a paedophile, they're a paedophile. And, you know...fucking disgusting. Their sexual orientation is irrelevant. I hate it when I read shit like this. It makes me ashamed of my past but even more so? It hurts me. I gave years...I gave my life for that Church and my lifestyle and the lifestyle of people I love gets attacked like this? It's soulcrushing. Who are they to judge?

I hope one day, this will all go away.
