Robert's rant 

I missed this My Blahg story from Wednesday: BISHOP CRIES FOUL OVER HUMAN RIGHTS COMPLAINTS What a great rant.
Robert first quotes what the Bishop actually said: "Since homosexuality, adultery, prostitution and pornography undermine the foundations of the family, the basis of society, then the State must use its coercive power to . . . curtail them in the interests of the common good," Henry wrote.
Its not surprising that the bigotry in this remark has resulted in human rights complaints against the bishop, who throws "homosexuality" in there with behaviours of choice like adultery and pornography, and with illegal activities like prostitution, and then demands that they all be made illegal.
Then Robert gets into his rant: "Let's get one thing clear. This is not about Bishop Henry's beliefs. It's about his attempt to generate ill will toward a segment of the community with outrageous rhetoric; an increasingly common occurrence which is being spearheaded by those who claim to abide by religious teachings in this country . . . Drop the dangerous rhetoric that serves only to demonize people who have caused you no harm nor foul . . . "
Right on, Robert.
