Chicago Cardinal Francis George Compares Gay Pride Day To A Ku Klux Klan Rally

From the “What The Hell Are They Sniffing In That Incense” File.

Cardinal Francis George, former president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops concerned that a church in the city may have to cancel its morning mass because of a gay pride march in 2012 associated Chicago’s Gay Pride Day to a Ku Klux Klan Rally on a  FOX-News Chicago news program.

“You know, you don’t want the Gay Liberation Movement to morph into something like the Ku Klux Klan, demonstrating in the streets against Catholicism.  The rhetoric of the KKK and the rhetoric of some of the gay liberation people — Who is the enemy? The Catholic Church”  George said. 

In response Andy Thayer, of the Gay Liberation Network, said: “In comparing LGBT rights advocates to the KKK, the Cardinal shows he is not honest man of faith trying to better the world, but rather, a mendacious one trying to deflect criticism of church policies that promote discrimination.  It is ironic that George chooses to mention the KKK, as they are but one of the most extreme examples of organizations which have used religion to shield themselves from criticism of their hateful policies.”

Now of course – his high catholic ass-holiness trying to prevent the catholic people from understanding gays are good people while the cardinal himself is implicated in the endless hidden molestation of children, and in particular ignoring and letting the problem fester. and expload.

Welcome to the fine art of  “deflection”
