Homophobe of the day: Chicago’s Cardinal Francis George on marriage

Posted on 13 Jan 2011 at 8:14pm

The Windy City Times:

“No one has the right to change marriage, neither “the Church” nor “the state.” While it is one thing “creating laws so that people don’t feel persecuted, don’t create a law that says apples are oranges. For a lawmaker to do so he “betrays his vocation to pass good law, especially problematic for a “Catholic lawmaker.”

– Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, commenting on the Catholic Church’s  opposition to civil-unions legislation recently passed by the Illinois General Assembly. His “argument was not with Mother Church but with Mother Nature,” adding that anyone who advocates same-sex marriage or its equivalent “has lost touch with the common understanding of the human race.”

Cardinal George then attempted to mitigate his bigotry by saying he has a nephew, who, despite being a homo, is a “fine man.”
