Local Church Acts Reasonably; Church Hierarchy, Not So Much

Oh, sit DOWN like you supposed to:

CHICAGO — On the heels of an agreement about parade times reached between Chicago LGBT Pride organizers and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel church — which sits on the June parade route — the Windy City’s Cardinal Francis George compared the event to “something like the Ku Klux Klan.”

“You don’t want the gay liberation movement to morph into something like the Ku Klux Klan, demonstrating in the streets against Catholicism,” the Cardinal told Fox News Chicago on Sunday.

When FOX tells you to chill out with the inappropriate and inflammatory rhetoric, you might want to consider heeding their advice, but no:

“That’s a little strong analogy, isn’t it? Ku Klux Klan?” the Fox reporter said to the Cardinal in response.

“It is, but you take a look at the rhetoric,” he responded.“The rhetoric of the Ku Klux Klan, the rhetoric of some of the gay liberation people. Who is the enemy? Who is the enemy?The Catholic Church.”

The enemy of my enemy is not always my friend, pal. The fact that the parish in question was just fine with the parade (just not with the timing, which would have snarled the hell out of traffic, so parish leaders acted like grownups and reached an actual solution) makes it all the more ridiculous that His Eminence went out of his way to fall on his keys, in a public-relations sense.

    For an organization that sent multiple invasions a couple thousand miles away from home for shits and giggles, then started whacking on locals when travel planning got too hard, then decided the Nazis were their BFFs, the Roman Catholic Pedo-Church really needs to STFU. Their big problem with the Klan is that the Church does like the competition for world title of intolerant, Satanic, murdering fucksticks – that the Klan hates them back is just basic rivalry for position.
