“A Roman Catholic bishop in northeastern Pennsylvania wants a Catholic university to close a multicultural center because it hosted a visit by a gay-rights advocate. Scranton Bishop Joseph Martino says Misericordia (miz-ur-ih-KOR’-dee-uh) University shouldn’t have sanctioned a Feb. 17 visit by author Keith Boykin [who was just named a CNBC contributor, congrats!]. He says viewpoints that contradict Catholic teaching should not be presented “under the guise of ‘diversity.'” [AP]
Misery-cordia – you have to be kidding. Oh, and it is located in “Dallas”, PA.
I’m from that area, and don’t remember it being quite so homophobic. Misericordia is commonly called “Misery” for short though, but I never knew why until now!
Was he there to talk about anythign related to the gays, or was it a completely different topic and he just happens to be gay?
Surprise-surprise, the same state as Santorum. Sounds like Martino got sand in his vag.
The good sisters who run the school have told the bishop to stuff it in his miter.
Martino is pretty much hated by everyone else. He has closed ethnic parishes, busted the Catholic School Teachers Unions, questioned the ethics of the Irish-American organizations in his diocese, and has most of his priests at war with him.
What a fella!!
is that Keith Boykin photo? If so damn I’d like to boink him!
Ah, but what do we expect? This bishop gets his goose-stepping orders from His Highness, The Poop.
Tch Tch, yet more evidence of the evil nature of they sky pixie religions!
When will you people learn that you cannot accommodate these people???
Kurt, I’m not sure exactly what he spoke about, but one newspaper account says almost all of his speech was about the historic nature of electing a black president.
Scranton Bishop Joseph Martino is quite conservative, and a bit of a grandstander. He held a press conference a couple months ago to announce that VP Joe Biden would be denied communion in his diocese, even though Biden doesn’t live in his diocese.
It sounds from the posts like there are some within the Catholic community who are opposing the bishop.
I’m not Catholic, but I have more respect for that kind of action than I do for condescending bitching from the sidelines.
