Holocaust deniers and the spread of AIDS in poor countries - OK!

Teh gay and birth control - I cast ye out, foul demons!

Seems like he has his priorities straight.

When will Bobby Jindal be excommunicated for performing an exorcism without a priest while attending Brown University?

Craig: You probably need to revisit your prejudices.

Wow, Craig--that's more concentrated ignorance and falsehood in four lines than I've seen in some time. Bravo!

DP,

Bishop Martino condemns Casey for voting to rescind the Mexico City policy, despite the fact that rescinding it will decrease the number of unintended pregnancies and, hence, the number of abortions.

He also condemned Misericordia University for hosting a gay rights advocate.

Meanwhile, not a peep out of him about the Pope allowing a Holocaust denier back into the fold.

Also, if he wants to refuse communion to a man who supports rescinding a retarded Republican policy, why won't he condemn Jindal, a converted catholic, for violating church law?

Jindal himself writes about the exorcism here:

Catholic exorcisms, according to the Canon law of the church, can be exercised only by an ordained priest, with the express permission of the local bishop, and only after a careful medical examination to exclude the possibility of mental illness.

Complete pro-abort rubbish. The Vatican condemns the reversal of the Mexico City policy because it realizes that group that perform abortions can take American taxpayer dollars now, and shift other dollars they receive to pay for abortions.

Of course the Vatican rejects your rosy view of the reversal of the Mexico policy.

The article you cite shows the hypocrisy of the Vatican:

"Benedict knows that abortion is legal and widely available throughout the West, including virtually every country in Europe."

Including Italy, a country that's 90% RC.
