U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops also opposes the Violence Against Woman Act and providing broader public accommodations protections for people of color for the same reason.
“All persons must be protected from violence, but codifying the classifications ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’ as contained in S. 47 is problematic,” the bishops admitted in a statement.
The men also refuse to consider providing broader public accommodations protections for women, people of color, and the disabled that would be included in the Equality Act because the bill would provide nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people. The bishops previously criticized the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) because it doesn’t distinguish “between sexual inclination and sexual conduct” and does “not represent an authentic step forward in the pursuit of justice in the workplace.”
The bishops even oppose the Fairness for All Act, legislation promoted by Republicans that would provide some nondiscrimination protections but with larger religious exemptions. That version is supported by the Church of Latter-day Saints, the Orthodox Union, and several other religiously affiliated groups.
Though to some this may sound to be cold, uncaring, etc, etc, it is most definitely NOT meant to be.
BUT, just maybe, this is because these 'happy little cross-dressing' Priests of the Church of Universal Paedophilia are suffering from a very deep seated form of Jealousy brought on by what they perceive as being caused by those in the LGBTQI Communities who find great pleasure and enjoyment in and from Role Reversal by wearing attire from the genders of which is the complete opposite to their own.
I mean, in the mind of these Catholic Priests, it would be 100% wrong to have other OUTSIDERS compete against them for the Title of being THE Best Cross-Dressers in the Universe, wouldn't it? LOL.
As a semi-retired yet still practicing Psychologist and Crisis Counselor, I make NOT distinct what-so-ever when it comes to a Patient/Client needing my help, etc, be they LGBTQI or whatever, I AM there to help them as best I possibly can SO, WHY, in the name of ALL things Reasonable, Humanitarian and Decency MUST the Catholic Church be so bloody-minded, Bigoted, Self-Righteous and out-right Discriminatory?
So, it is OK according to the Catholic church if gay and transgendered people commit suicide, and preferable to to allow all people to suffer without support if it means LGBTQ persons have to be included. How compassionate of them. They must not accept the confessions of gay or transgendered persons either which condemns them to burn. Murderers, thiefs, and child molesters can be forgiven and deserve support when they are suicidal, but not gay people. Sad! Very Sad! And they wonder why people leave their churches.
Kind of off topic but my grandfather was a catholic who committed suicide. It was hushed up and he got buried in hallowed ground. I have no idea how devout he was but his wife and daughter (My mom) were only catholic when filling out paperwork. I literally didn't even know that until I was in my teens.
I have to approach these news items very carefully. Breathe deeply, count to ten a few times.
Otherwise it releases an stoppable F torrent, a Tasmanian Devil spin cycle.
Catholic church, I cannot hear you. The noise from the next room where you keep your Pedophile Machine is drowning out anything you say to me. Get fucked.
Maybe wrong choice of words, but it is the thought that counts, my Hallmark moment for these smoldering turds.
BTW my reaction is mild compared to my wife's. Just sayin'.
