does not bode well for people

Sister Jeannine Gramick says the choice of Ratzinger, who as the Vatican's guardian of doctrine silenced her and Father Robert Nugent in a 1999 order, will likely prevent the church from "moving into the 21st century and out of the Middle Ages."

"It does not bode well for people who are concerned for lesbian and gay people in the church," she said.
Note: Sister Jeannine Gramick was ordered by a Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger to stop ministering to gays and lesbians

What kind of self-loathing keeps gay people in such a viciously homophobic institution in the first place? Ya gotta wonder.

Very good point HD Canuck. They say change takes forever in the Catholic church, some of my friends seem willing to wait it out. Not sure I could were I a Catholic.

One thing about religion, it is a learned and conditioned behaviour unlike sexual orientation which one is born with!

It's a cult. Cults are hard to get out of, look at the Moonies -- it's one and the same thing.

Do moonies use nonsense as well?

I love how you people, fighting for your right to engage in whatever sexual behavior you want to, can somehow see yourselves as morally superior to the Pope.
