A coalition of religious leaders in Massachusetts who are pro-gay marriage has lashed out at Boston Archbishop Sean Cardinal O’Malley and other Catholic leaders for opposing same-sex unions. The coalition accuses the Catholic leaders of practicing “religious discrimination” and has requested that they stop campaigning for laws that protect the institution of marriage.
“We respect the Roman Catholic Church’s desire to speak in a public forum about this, but it has come to a point where the advocacy about same-sex marriage has come to impinge on our own religious practices, because not everyone believes same-sex marriage is wrong or sinful or against religious beliefs,” said the Rev. Tiffany Steinwert, a United Methodist minister who works with homosexuals. She added, “What happens when the Roman Catholic Church seeks to create public policy based on their religious beliefs is that they negate other religious beliefs that might be contrary to that.”
Catholic League president Bill Donohue responded as follows:
“It is important that the religious coalition stop practicing religious discrimination against Roman Catholics and stop campaigning for laws that weaken the institution of marriage. "

Bill Donahue is right -- these so-called religious leaders need to stop discriminating against Catholics and stop protecting and campaigning for what is evil. They have been impinging on the rights of the majority of Christians and Catholics for long enough now. Let's get with the program, people -- no matter how loud you yell you're not going to convert any of us to the perverse religion of homosexuality nor will we commit to the culture of death. Your lifestyles are sick, deviant, and dangerous, and you need help. If you choose to roll in the mud with the animals that is your choice, but even animals are smart enough to know better than to behave in an unnatural way.
