If The Roman Catholic Church Doesn’t Like Being Persecuted, Why Is It Persecuting Gays?

THINGS WE WONDER ABOUT — Why does the Roman Catholic Church, which spent most of its existence fighting off persecution from other powers, now expend so much effort persecuting gay men and women, many of whom subscribe to its teachings? Also not off the hook: Jewish leaders, whose last bout of egregious persecution saw six million of them slaughtered, but who now feel it’s their right to go after queers, too. [Inverness Courier]
