Consider Matt McCarten reporting back on a Priest who spoke to him:
The irony of having a young virgin man in a frock, not permitted to marry, employed by what many would say is an anti-women institution riddled with suppressed homosexual men and paedophiles, preaching to me on the threat of gays to heterosexual marriage, was lost on him.Well, the irony of Matt mocking the priest by suggesting that a man wearing a frock is somehow demeaning whilst he professes to stand up for transvestites was lost on him.
The irony of mocking some-one for taking a vow of celibacy, whilst arguing that "each to his own" with regard to anal sex was also lost on him.
The irony of arguing that the Church is riddled with suppressed homosexual men, whilst arguing that there is nothing wrong with homosexual orientation appears lost on him.
Should it really matter what a person choose to wear, where he works, and what his private sex life is about when he voices an opinion? And is it right to make jokes at the expense of transvestites or people who choose to struggle with same sex attraction? Liberals would argue no. And yet, in the final analysis,we see gay rights supporters like Matt often using this line of attack towards priests and the religious. Seems hypocritical to me.
