I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising that San Francisco would decide that it can tell McDonald’s they are no longer allowed to sell a safe, legal product. If you have not heard about this, San Francisco, a city dominated by very vocal and powerful homosexuals, has passed a law that says McDonald’s can no longer put toys in Happy Meals unless the meals meet certain guidelines, mainly being under a certain amount of calories. Trying to keep little kids from becoming fat is a good thing, but I don’t see how Happy Meals are the main cause of obesity as opposed to lack of exercise and parents who let kids go overboard. I ate plenty of Happy Meals, I still like them sometimes, and I have never been overweight. Millions of other people are the same. But San Francisco’s “progressive” idea that they (homosexuals) know what is best for everyone and their hatred for big companies makes this type of insanely ridiculous law OK by them. Of course McDonald’s should do the right thing and ignore the law and sue all the way to the Supreme Court when it is enforced, but the fear of bad public relations will stop that.
Let’s not forget that San Francisco is the same place that has, as an official act of the city, condemned the Catholic Church in clear violation of the First Amendment and they have been upheld by a federal court in doing so. When I am asked the same question, over and over, by so-called “gay marriage” advocates why I oppose redefining marriage, I say again and again that I don’t trust homosexual activists to not attempt to force the Church to marry gay people (they already have talked openly of doing so and groups like “rainbow sash” have proven that homosexual rights advocates are openly hateful of the Church and want to see it brought down). I also don’t trust our courts or legislatures to protect the Church. Given the homosexual proclivity to use the power of the state to enforce their own brand of “morality” on everyone else, does it seem unreasonable for me to be concerned? You not being concerned is unreasonable.

The Holy Father’s visit to England is bringing out commentary from that nation’s top atheists; not surprisingly Richard Dawkins (the Church is “the greatest force for evil in the world.”) and awful novelist Phillip Pullman (“I hope the wretched Catholic Church will vanish entirely.”) are among them. But also among those participating in something called “Protest the Pope” is a “gay activist” named Peter Tatchell who has said:
“Several of my friends—gay and straight, male and female—had sex with adults from the ages of nine to 13. None feel they were abused. All say it was their conscious choice and gave them great joy. While it may be impossible to condone paedophilia, it is time society acknowledged the truth that not all sex involving children is unwanted, abusive and harmful.” (Link, so you can attempt to argue the source instead of the issue.)
So, let’s see if I have this right. The Church is the only entity on earth, according to almost all atheists/secularists, that should be called out for sexual abuse of children. This is despite the fact that sexual abuse is far more prevalent in U.S. public schools, but those are controlled by liberal teachers’ unions, so we can’t be telling the truth about that! This is, of course, the typical thought process of those who hate the Church. About 4000 priests, among a faith of over one billion adherents, over 60 years, condemn the entire institution, and it is perfectly fine that a leader of that condemnation be a man (pictured here, perhaps after someone’s father met him in person) who openly advocates sex with children.
But the Church is a force for evil?
Apparently gay activists are outraged over comments from Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone regarding homosexuality and the Church sexual abuse scandals. It doesn’t take much at all to get activists outraged about anything, given that manufacturing outrage is the raison d’être of anyone calling themselves an activist. But in this case, the outrage (as it usually is) is misplaced. There is nothing incorrect about what the Cardinal said:
“Many psychologists, many psychiatrists have demonstrated that there is no relationship between celibacy and pedophilia but many others have demonstrated, I was told recently, that there is a relationship between homosexuality and pedophilia.”
The vast majority of boys, approximately 86%, who are sexually abused are abused by men. That, by definition, makes the act not only an act of pedophilia, but an act of homosexuality. Given that the vast majority of victims of abuse in the Church are boys, and the perpetrators are all men, simple logic tells us that homosexuality is a driver behind the acts committed by the priests. The Cardinal stated there is a relationship between homosexuality and pedophilia. The facts back him up. In my opinion, there is no reason to think that people who choose that lifestyle are not more more likely to engage in other “deviant” behaviors. Perhaps gay activists should worry less about being outraged by people telling the truth and focus on helping address the problem?
But that will not get them any headlines on CNN.
