The truth is that if Maj. Nidal Hasan, the accused killer of 13 people at Fort Hood, had entered the officers club there with a nice handbag on his arm, perhaps a Gucci tote, he would have been out of the Army by the end of the week. Since he was merely antisocial, a misfit, an incompetent psychiatrist and a likely Islamic fanatic, he was retained and promoted. This says something about America. On the subject of gays, we are a tad nuts ourselves.I love that because it really points out the lunacy of the whole discourse. Just this week a Cardinal of the Catholic church has announced that gays and transgendered folk are hell-bound:
Homosexuals and transsexuals "will never enter the kingdom of heaven", a leading Roman Catholic cardinal [Javier Lozano Barragan] said on Wednesday.Uh-huh. Now, about those divorced people.....really? They can go to heaven, despite directly sinning against the words of Christ? Hmmmmm.....adultery yes, faithful gay no. And what about those celibate, gay Catholic priests, estimated at 30-50% of the priesthood. Them, neither.
"People are not born homosexual, they become homosexual, for different reasons: education issues or because they did not develop their own identity during adolescence. It may not be their fault, but acting against nature and the dignity of the human body is an insult to God," he said.
So if there aren't any GLBT people in heaven, how fabulous could it be?
