Anti-Gay Activist Nominated For Vatican Slot

mary_ann_glendon-1.jpg
Anti-gay marriage activist Mary Ann Glendon may be getting a new gig.

President Bush nominated the former Harvard professor to be America’s ambassador to the Vatican. The 69-year old pro-lifer previously worked with the Vatican when Pope John Paul II appointed her to the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, which helps the Vatican formulate its social and cultural policies. Those policies, of course, aren’t terribly progressive or gay friendly.

Glendon’s most recently been using her time to help Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. Upon hearing of the nomination, which must be approved by the Senate, Romney lamented his campaign’s loss, but celebrated Glendon’s “values”:

She will serve our country with the honor and dignity we expect from those who represent our country’s values abroad. While I may have lost her trusted counsel to our campaign, our country has gained an extremely gifted ambassador.

As for representing our country’s values, here’s what Glendon had to say about an anti-gay marriage amendment:

President Bush’s endorsement of a constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage should be welcomed by all Americans who are concerned about equality and preserving democratic decision-making.

What same-sex marriage advocates have tried to present as a civil rights issue is really a bid for special preferences of the type our society gives to married couples for the very good reason that most of them are raising or have raised children.

It would be tragic if, just when the country is beginning to take stock of the havoc those erroneous ideas have already wrought in the lives of American children, we should now freeze them into constitutional law.

Those don’t sound like American values. Those are clearly demented, discriminatory, short-sighted conservative ideas.

Perfect for the Vatican!

      Thank God people still care about the health and well being of the family. History has shown that civilizations crumble when homosexuality is running rampant– take a closer look at some of the recent happenings in San Francisco alone.

      The family is the single most important issue that our country faces today. I am so happy to hear that Mary Ann Glendon is supporting Mitt Romney for 2008! Mitt Romney shares many of the same values that Mary Ann Glendon shares. I pray that Christians will support Mitt Romney and put aside doctrinal differences and build upon our common values! Lets make change happen!

      allen — I totally share your puzzlement on this one. Seems like a waste of time and money to me. On the other hand, it gets this particular witch out of the country, which can only be a good thing.

      And then there’s this bit of stupidry:

      “What same-sex marriage advocates have tried to present as a civil rights issue is really a bid for special preferences of the type our society gives to married couples for the very good reason that most of them are raising or have raised children.”

      So by all means let’s dissolve the marriages of the childless. Failure to propagate the species should logically result in the removal of the special preferences given to those who spawn. If they don’t reproduce annually, then their sex is purely for pleasure, just like the nasty homos!

      Love how they always bring up “democracy,” but we don’t live in a true democracy because our founding fathers were wary of “mob rule,” we live in a democratic republic.

      If it were up to these people, we would have had a national vote on ending slavery, allowing women to vote, permitting inter-racial marriage…and none probably would have passed.

      And why are they judges only “activist” when they make rulings these people don’t like.

      It’s been said more than once, activist judges put Bush in the White House…TWICE!

      With tongue-in-cheek, I propose a constitutional amendment that restricts marriage only to those who have given birth regardless of the genders of the couples with an initial grace period of say three years to get a bun out of the oven and that those marriages automatically end as soon as minor children leave the household and no further pregnancies leading to live birth occur within 18 months. Since those who oppose gay marriage generally use procreation of the species to support restricting marriage rights to a special class, there is no point in allowing those rights to continue when procreation is no longer possible. Anyone think those who want to restrict marriage as a special right to those who procreate would go for it?

      Homosexuality is a perversion, an act against nature. Because some choose to follow this lifestyle does not negate this fact; and I am sure that those practicing this lifestyle know this “before”, “during” and “after”. Sometimes we choose to ignore the things we do not want to hear.

      Once again: History has shown that civilizations crumble when homosexuality is running rampant– take a closer look at some of the recent happenings in San Francisco alone.

      Debrar,

      If homosexuality is a perversion, an act against nature, then what are you doing reading a Gay web site and no less posting in it?

      shouldn’t you be going to church for repenting for your sins instead of expressing hatred in a web site.

      God loves all his children and makes us each special, Gay or str8…and even loves you as you spew hate.

      are you a retard? How can homosexuality be “an act against nature” when it happens all the time in nature? It has been observed in almost all species of mammals, many birds, even life-long same-sex couples among those that bond for life.
      And where in history does homosexuality cause a civilization to crumble. You jokers use the roman empire for an example a lot but if you look at history, the roman empire rose to the height of its power as a pagan state, tolerant of homosexuality, and fell shortly after becoming christian and intolerant. “Sometimes we choose to ignore the things we do not want to hear.”

      We need an Ambassabitch to the Vatican so that Priest can continue to molest little boys and keep it swept under the rug. She can also help negotiate the multi million dollar settlements that are awarded to these guys, and Mary Ann is as tight as that hair on her head.

      Also, her and the Pope share a passion for red dresses.

      It is clear that Debrar has a little lady crush on Mary Ann so we better cool it with the bashing of this lady or Debrar’s muff will explode…..and God/Buddah/Allah knows we don’t want that.

      Debrar craves attention, that is why he/she/it is here. You’ll notice that when no one responded to the first obnoxious post, he/she/it had to return with yet another, hoping someone would rise to the bait. To ignore Debrar is the best way to deal with Debrar. If he/she/it can’t have any fun, he/she/it will eventually go away. Such a sad and pathetic creature Debrar seems to be.

      Well Bob R, you are such a psychologist. If that is what I was doing (NOT), then it looks like I caught your attention. So, you must have read comments. Good job, I need more of your attention Bob, so stay tuned in case I write something else. Too bad that you had to mislead, reality is a hard thing to grasp.

      Have you ever had your face in a muff? Do you dream about muff? Do you worship the muff?

      Are you a woman? You have to give us more honey because as it stands right now, you are just a chicken shit hiding behind a name.

      What is your beef with gay men? Did one steal your boyfriend…girlfriend?

      Go ahead, come out of the closet so we can send you your toaster.

      Yeah, you’re so smart, you must be on to me — you’ve discovered that I’m the one who is really hiding behind a name here. Talk about a brain at work, I’m so impressed with you. Yep, I recognized that this truly is a wonderful place to get honestly acquainted with each other – as I can see the rest of you are doing. I especially love the assortment of insults, profanity, and perversion. Plus, the splash of humor, although a bit on the disgusting side – I guess you are trying to come up with some kind of kinky ice breaker here, but “No”, I don’t have any of those issues .. I leave those to you.

      So now that we’ve gone down that little “do you kiss your mama with that mouth?” side-track, back to the topic at hand:

      Thank God people still care about the health and well being of the family. History has shown that civilizations crumble when homosexuality is running rampant– take a closer look at some of the recent happenings in San Francisco alone.

      Pretty amazing there scarecrow — what a complete surprise that you would ignore crude, off-the-wall, nonsense and just focus on me. Thank you for the great compliment of being personally addressed once more; however, please be more careful, you may upset Bob R. You are definitely right about inane things being a bit amusing.
