I’m not making this up; the Vatican did buy a large chunk of property in Rome for 30 million and one of the businesses is a gay sauna. I won’t get snarky here. I would love to, but I’m sticking to facts now.
According to Bathhouse Blog:
The hope is to house several Catholic priests.
You can read more here, where you will find an additional link. Be interesting to see how long the sauna lasts now with these new landlords.
Philadelphia Archdiocese Sponsors Anti Gay Event
If you are interested in seeing marriage equality happen in your lifetime and you are interested in fighting discrimination I would highly recommending reading this article in full. I happen to live in the Diocese of Philadelphia and it states they are running buses from Bucks County for ten dollars. As a former Catholic, I have no regrets about leaving Catholicism when I read things like this.
These good decent faithfuls are planning a march to the Supreme Court with a rally at the National Mall where they will stand up and fight for “traditional” marriage because they don’t think gay couples like Tony and me should be allowed to marry, not even after twenty years of together living as any other married straight couple.
What I find interesting is they know nothing about gay people or gay relationships and yet they can still be so presumptuous at the same time.
What I find even more interesting is that there are, indeed, plenty of Catholics who don’t feel this way and who do support same sex marriage, including priests, and yet we never hear from them.
