…and it turns out this Leading Catholic Blogger thinks, on the basis of his own obsessions, that Benedict is gay. And it turns out the MSM thinks this speculation is newsworthy and not ridiculous. Calling Sullivan a “Catholic blogger” is about as sensible as calling a celibate man “gay”. Sullivan is “Catholic” in the sense that he has never actually formally rejected his baptism and still retains a sort of tribal identity as a Catholic who never goes to Mass and largely hates the Church. Calling him a “Catholic blogger” is like calling Trotsky a “devout Jew”. Give me a break. It would be far more accurate to say “gay blogger with deep loathing for Benedict accuses him of being gay”.
