Vatican To United Nations: Homophobes Are The Real Victims Of Worldwide Intolerance


The Obama administration might be arguing that it’s LGBTs around the world that are the victims of institutional homophobia, but the Vatican isn’t going to sit back quietly while earth’s bigots get thrown under the bus. The Holy See’s Archbishop Silvano Tomasi told the United Nations Human Rights Council on Tuesday that “people are being attacked for taking positions that do not support sexual behavior between people of the same sex. People are being attacked for taking positions that do not support sexual behavior between people of the same sex. When they express their moral beliefs or beliefs about human nature . . . they are stigmatised, and worse — they are vilified, and prosecuted. These attacks are violations of fundamental human rights and cannot be justified under any circumstances.” Tomasi was the same guy who, in 2009, told the same Human Rights Council it should ease up on the Catholic sexual molestation scandal, because hey, Protestants and Jews were equally at fault of raping kids, and that babysitters and neighbors are more likely to violate children than your neighborhood priest.

    Love the cape, darling. But try keeping you trap shut.
    No one is ‘attacking’ or ‘prosecuting’ you bigots. You liar.
    Our people are the ones physically attacked and prosecuted, fired from jobs for being gay, and vilified for centuries by you bitches.

  • Shofixti

    People shouldn’t be prosecuted for their beliefs.

    Who gives any damn about what that bunch of morons has to say? Even catholics don’t like the vatican…

    @ the pope: Wake up, Dorothy. It’s 2011 and the only thing people are expecting you to do is to choke on some food (or fall from your balcony). So grab your white freak costume and go preach somewhere else (as in hell, the only place you belong) – your opinions are not welcomed on this planet.

    Can only hope and pray that god will strike this perv of a man down… and when this “sinful man” justifies his own religion’s child rapists in order to promote himself he has no justification to throw stones at another religion or person… Catholics world wide should in full shame of this image of white caped ignorance and disrespect of gods words.

  • Riker

    If y’all woulf RTFA, you would see that the Pope didn’t say this, but rather it was Archbishop Tomasi.

  • TomMc

    If you can find me one case – just one! – of a homophobe killing themself because of this harassment, then perhaps I’ll begin to take this Arch. Tomasi seriously.

    The Catholic church still is living in the 16th century, where they think they rule the world. They have also not realized that a significant percentage of priests and nuns are gay or lesbian. By their own homophobia & sexism they’re losing “staff” around the Americas and Europe. They’ve lost moral authority by so badly handling the abuse of children, and NOW they have the gall to complain to the UN about how THEY are being treated?

    Yeah, let me light some candles for them so they can see their worldview bursting into flames…..

  • Cam

    No, actually sweetie…oh, and LOVE the dress…whats REALLY happening isn’t that people are being attacked for being homophobes…

    It’s that homophobes are starting to be PREVENTED from attacking others. I understand why this is a difficult concept for the Pope to understand since it’s the OPPOSIT of what the church did with all those child molesters it employess.

    But yes, Pope, sometimes, bad people are actually PREVENTED from doing bad things….You’ve learned something! Isn’t this a fun day?!!

    I love him.

    “people are being attacked for taking positions that do not support sexual behavior between people of the same sex.” If only!

  • Sceth

    “Moral beliefs about human nature” as opposed to empirical ones indeed.

  • ewe

    Am I the only one reminded of Maximillian Schell’s character in “Judgement at Nuremberg” when he opens his mouth?

    He says “people are being attacked for being homophobes” like it’s a bad thing. I consider it a prerequisite for deserving to live.

  • McMike

    All in all, I have to say the Pope’s boyfriend is f’n HOT!!!
