White House petitioned to label Catholic Church a 'hate group'

An online petition asking the White House to designate the Catholic Church as a "hate group" for its views on marriage is drawing criticism for generating unjust animosity.

The petition reveals an "underlying agenda," which is not simply to prevent violent crimes, but to "stigmatize any disapproval of homosexuality at all and essentially to silence us," said Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C.

He explained to CNA on Jan. 3 that applying the "hate group" label to organizations that are morally opposed to redefining marriage is simply "name-calling designed to cut us out of the public debate."

Initiated on Christmas Day, a petition on the White House website had collected 1,640 signatures by Jan. 3.

The petition - which is aiming for 25,000 signatures by Jan. 24 - argued that Pope Benedict XVI's 2012 Christmas address to the College of Cardinals "demeaned and belittled homosexual people around the world."

In his address to the cardinals, the Pope did not directly reference "gay marriage" or "homosexuality" at all. Rather, he defended the Church's understanding of sexuality and "the true structure of the family, made up of father, mother, and child." 


It's pretty clear who is doing the hating there

Of course we could never bring up the Islamic religion and their perfect record of human, GLTB, or women's rights.

Anon 2:14 What about NAMBLA?

You butt munchers never mention them do you?

The priest scandal is bad but 1 in 1000 cases does not a scandal make.

What about all the teachers molesting kids? THAT is more of a problem than the priests.

The appropriate response from the Administration would be "Read your Constitution, you ignoramuses. The First Amendment has no exception for hate speech."

Good response Anon 2:28. While you're at it, you can remind Atheist 2:14 to take a look at the "many" rabbis in Brooklyn, NY who are only now being exposed as child molesters.

As for the gay community, all i can say is that we should all donate as much as we can for AIDS research. No, not to find a cure, but to find a faster way of spreading it.

The world will be a much better place once all the gays and athesists are eradicated.

Yes Anon 4:33 and 11:49, since the overwhelming majority of gays and atheists are jews, then anyone who dares disagree with them must be a "neo-Nazi"? That whining sounds oh-so familiar.

5:44 AM - Wow! that's the most stupid claim I've heard yet re Jews.

5:45 AM - No doubt the same as 5:44 AM. Kindly give more evidence that Karl Marx ever wrote that dubious phrase.
