William May, chairman of Catholics for the Common Good (not to be confused with the left-wing "Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good") commented on a portion of Vaughn Walker's ruling that casts an ominous shadow over freedom of religion in this country. The ruling's 77th "finding of fact" states that "Religious beliefs that gay and lesbian relationships are sinful or inferior to heterosexual relationships harm gays and lesbians." Quotes that "support this fact" include statements of Pope Benedict XVI. Lifesite News carries more detail.
Walker also quotes statements from other Christian denominations. Interestingly enough, there are no citations of Muslim prohibitions against homosexual relations. I wonder if he ever saw this video of Iraninan President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at Columbia University (click here if you can't see embedded video).
So why are only traditional Christians targeted by Walker? It is not Christians who are tacitly advocating executions of gays, as seems to be the case in Iran, but it is we who are vilified. As I said before, we are being treated as Niggers of the New Age. We are the targets of the current acceptable bigotry.
Will we stand for it???
