Apologies all around... and Open Thread

My apologies, mentioned in the title of this post, because I can't help but laugh at this. It's just so over-the-top that I find it funny. Sorry! Because it really isn't funny at all - these folks are serious. And I realize that my love for the LGBT community, which is what makes this video so ridiculous to me, is far from mainstream.

So question: Will British straight people be influenced at all by this, and, if so, how will they be influenced?

Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor has been spearheading a last minute attack, in hopes of derailing the Equality Act scheduled to start in April 2007.

So why is the cardinal so confrontational towards gays and lesbians? The British television documentary "The Root of All Evil" helps explain why some religions are so hostile. The full documentary can be viewed on YouTube.com, at the following links:

That was absolutely the most laughable and farcical portrayal of teaching about sexuality I've ever seen. Talk about hyperbole and rhetoric.

I am still laughing so hard I really can't be offended by the perversion of reality in this film. It's quite honestly comical.

Good News!

The House of Lords voted in favor of gay rights. Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor and the Catholic Church's attempt to demolish gay rights failed.
