Maine’s Bishop Malone loves us Gays… but - Lez Get Real

Hypocrisy at its height

Maine’s Bishop Malone loves us Gays… but - Lez Get Real

9/10/09- by Paula brooksRichardMalone
Bishop Richard Malone of Portland, Maine says he loves us LGBT’s and he is not simply being a bigot for opposing same sex-marriage in Maine…

“Our opposition to same-sex marriage is not an instance of unjust discrimination or animosity towards homosexual persons. In fact, the Catholic Church teaches emphatically that individuals and society must respect the basic human dignity of all persons, including those with a homosexual orientation.”

Of course that did not stop the Bishop from putting up $100,000 in church funds to overturn the Maine Marriage Equality law despite urging Maine’s 200,000 Catholics to tighten their belts and suck it up because he is closing five churches in his diocese due to deficits and the high cost of maintaining them up…

Oh yeah Bishop Malone also wants all you Maine Catholics to remember to shell out for the bishop favorite cause this next Sunday… a “special collection”… for promoting bigotry against LGBT’s.

I wrote a comment to a news article in the Bangor Daily News about Maine’s Catholic Bishop Malone’s antigay statement, in support of Marriage Equality and challenging the his ignorance about human sexuality and the bible.

...Same-sex marriage is a dangerous sociological experiment that many of us believe will have negative consequences for society as a whole,” said [Bishop] Malone in the message, according to the Bangor Daily News. “Children need the love of a mother and a father.”

This statement is cruel and untrue. People against Marriage Equality do not base their public statements on facts either from science or the bible. It is a repeat of the time the Vatican was condemning Galileo, because they insisted that Galileo was going against the bible that it is the sun that revolves around the earth.

Children need people who are honest and truthful. Children are not safe around people who publicly speak out against Marriage Equality, because in truth these people have had no formal study in human sexuality or the bible and yet they without any intellectual thought speak out and harm innocent people. This is irresponsible adult behavior, which is harmful for children to witness. This has been proven to have “negative consequences” for children, consult developmental psychology.

With all due respect, it is without a question that Bishop Malone would not be able to pass graduate course exams on human sexuality, sexual orientation, and gender identity or biblical studies. Prove me wrong!!!

And if Bishop Malone cannot pass these exams today, than before God he needs to publically retract what he said against Marriage Equality. If not, then Bishop Malone needs to go back to the seminary to study moral theology.

The best thing to do for the well-being and safety of all children would be if people against Marriage Equality spent their money to academically study human sexuality, sexual orientation, gender identity and the bible. This is what children need the truth. People speaking out on such life and death issues should not speak out of ignorance and fear, thus spreading hatred and violence that indiscriminately is severely harmful to all children.

The truth will set you free - not ignorance and fear.
