he's done it again!! Chris Kluwe has posted a powerful blog post and open letter to Archbishop Nienstedt and Pope Benedict XVI condemning the anti-gay stance of both and the Catholic Church. fortunately for this str8 guy, i'm not at all prejudiced, and will gladly "love him long time".....and that includes biscuits and 3 kinds of gravy EVERY mornin'.
here's an excerpt in case anyone's too lazy to touch 'pon the linky-lurv:
"I read your views on gay marriage in the Star Tribune, Archbishop Nienstedt, and it fills me with great sadness and regret that a steward of the Catholic Church on this Earth feels the need to take a stance of oppression, intolerance, and fear. Surely, is this not what Jesus spoke of when he said, "Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by his fruit"?
How can we reconcile our version of the Catholic Church as salvation to the sick, the needy, the poor, when we must also bear witness to the Catholic Church as oppressor, tormentor, and executioner? Where, in all of Jesus' teachings, did he ever say to deny the humanity of other human beings; where did the Son of God proclaim that mortal Man knew God's will; where, pray tell, did Jesus ever say to harden your heart against those who may not be exactly the same as you?"
