Bigotry and ignorance

A report in today's Telegraph indicates that tolerance and enlightenment still remain alien concepts to some senior members of the Catholic Church:

A senior Roman Catholic bishop has accused homosexual campaigners of a "huge and well-orchestrated conspiracy" against Christian values.

The Rt Rev Joseph Devine, Bishop of Motherwell, 70, said during a lecture in Glasgow that homosexual rights organisations aligned themselves with minority groups and attended Holocaust memorial services to project an image of "people under persecution".

The bishop, who is president of the Catholic Education Commission in Scotland, added that he would "not tolerate" a child trying to come to terms with his or her homosexuality. Homosexual rights campaigners said he was "deluded".

As Cynical Dragon points out homosexuals are represented at Holocaust Memorial Day because Hitler slaughtered gays as well as Jews and gypsies. If this is representative of the teachings of the Catholic Education Commission in Scotland then maybe they should review which century they think they are in, and I am speaking here as somebody who was brought up a Catholic.
yes and the disabled. I know we are frauds.
This is a worry, too: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/education/education-news/ban-anticatholic-books-in-schools-says-bishop-794996.html
