    After a rousing start, that site has been scraping the bottom of the barrel recently for a good post. But this one rocks

    LOL. But too bad some folks will take it seriously.

    Ah the Brightness of the Journalism profession when it comes to religion especially the Catholic Faith shines again: Pope Francis merely repeated what is in the Catholic Catechism and has been for a long time.

    “2358 The number of men and women who have
    deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination,
    which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial.
    They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every
    sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These
    persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are
    Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the
    difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

    Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of
    self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of
    disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and
    should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.”

    The test to become a religious reporter must be “How little you know about the religion you are reporting on”
