Evil Timmy Dolan plays victim

Archbishop Timothy Dolan, the Catholic henchman who led the US Conference of Catholic Bishops during the years that it pilloried gay people and fought gay marriage everywhere, says he's the victim. Uh-huh.
Timothy Cardinal Dolan says the Catholic Church has been out-maneuvered and unfairly portrayed as “anti-gay” in the battle over same-sex marriage.

In an interview recorded for Sunday’s “Meet the Press" on NBC, Dolan said he regrets the “stampede” to legalize gay marriage, but that the Catholic Church is “not going to give up” in opposing such unions.

“I think maybe we’ve been out-marketed, sometimes. We’ve been caricatured as being anti-gay,” he said.
"Unfairly portrayed as 'anti-gay'"? Caricatured? Timmy is the leader of the vicious Catholic anti-gay movement in the United States, a movement that apparently isn't dead yet despite the pope's insistence that it should be. It's clear that when the pope said "Who am I to judge?" (in reference to gays) he didn't mean "The anti-gay pogrom must continue at all costs!" The pope doesn't want an anti-gay czar to exist within his church. Yet that's pretty much Dolan's job description.

Caricature, my ass. Timmy, you practically cried each time gay marriage won the day in a new state. You are anti-gay bigotry personified. You are the knife that cuts gay throats. You are the pillager, come to devastate gay families. You are the anti-gay Satan.

Go ahead, play the victim card. But know that we see you for who and what you are. You are ugliness and hatred and injustice. You are anathema. And if there is a god, you will spend all eternity in Hell. (But don't worry; hell's just a fairy tale.)
