Catholic Bishop Luis Bambaren Is Sorry Only For Calling You ‘Faggots’

Luis Bambaren, an influential Catholic bishop in Peru, issued an apology after referring to gays as “faggots” when asked by reporters earlier this week about proposed civil union legislation. “I ask for an apology for everyone who felt offended,” says a falsely apologetic Bambaren. “It is an offensive word, and [gay people] deserve respect.” But not marriage, confirmation, or equal rights! Ba-dum-bum.
