Our friends at The Rome Report pass along this recent quote from their Bishop Robinson:
"This strikes me as language from people who profoundly do not understand gay and lesbian people ... who know next to nothing about being gay or lesbian."
Now really. For decades, people have insinuated that a shocking and alarming percentage of the Catholic priesthood and hierarchy was gay. But now, as soon as it's cool to be ecclesial and gay, suddenly no Catholic hierarch has ever even met anyone gay.
It's a given that the Church will be constantly slandered in some quarters, but I guess I'm at least asking for consistancy in the slandering.
