Cardinal Blames 'Bad Marketing' For Catholic Church's Anti-Gay Reputation


Bump what you heard. The Catholic Church isn't anti-gay, they just have an image problem. At least that's the case according to Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

"Well, I think maybe we've been outmarketed sometimes," he said in a preview clip of an interview set to air Sunday on Meet the Press. "We've been caricatured as being anti-gay."

Dolan, if you don't know, fought tooth and nail against the passage of marriage equality in NYC back in 2011 even comparing its legalization to communist regimes. “Last time I consulted an atlas, it is clear we are living in New York, in the United States of America — not in China or North Korea,” he wrote in a letter posted on his website. “In those countries, government presumes daily to ‘redefine’ rights, relationships, values, and natural law. There, communiqu├ęs from the government can dictate the size of families, who lives and who dies, and what the very definition of ‘family’ and ‘marriage’ means.”

Dolan told host David Gregory marriage equality supporters given the church, who he claims is not "anti anybody" its reputation.

"When you have forces like Hollywood, when you have forces like politicians, when you have forces like some opinion-molders that are behind it, it's a tough battle," he said.

So, comparing marriage equality to living in a communist state isn't anti-gay or discriminatory? I guess the written words he posted on his own website--and the centuries of viewing homosexuality as disordered, a sin whose only solution is life-long celibacy--were distorted by the wick pro-gay media. Chile please.
