Frank Bruni's "The Pope's Gay Panic" is one of the best takedowns of Vatican hypocrisy that I've ever read. Funny, incisive and biting. I don't want to steal his thunder, so I'll just give you the first paragraph:
I HAVE many questions for and about the “gay lobby” in the Vatican, but I’ll start with this: How can you be so spectacularly ineffective?
Seriously, go read it. You'll thank me.
