rainbow-catholic.jpgSalvatore Cordileone, the notoriously homophobic Roman Catholic archbishop of San Francisco, has been making headlines in recent weeks for his heinous proposal that would force Catholic schoolteachers to sign "morality clauses" condemning abortion, contraception, and marriage equality.

The backlash from lay Catholics has been nothing short of inspirational. Teachers are speaking out against Cordileone's proposed changes in droves, and hundreds of students and parents are as well -- organizing rallies, protests, and vigils under the hashtag #TeachAcceptance.

But this is not sitting well with Cordileone's allies on the conservative Catholic right -- including the wingnuts over at ChurchMilitant.TV, which bills itself as "the world's first Catholic television station exclusively on the internet."

They've released a video hysterically slamming the "homofascist monolith" and calling for a new "San Francisco earthquake" to shatter it. (Considering that the original San Francisco earthquake and subsequent fire, in 1906, destroyed over 80% of the city and killed over 3,000 people, this comparison is rather unfortunate.)

Watch, after the break.

Kudos to the courageous Catholics standing up for LGBT human rights in San Francisco and calling on their diocese and the church to #TeachAcceptance. If they're causing the bigots to squirm like this, they're doing something right.
