Pope makes homophobic nitwit a cardinal

Looks like we're going to get the same old thing from the new, evolved, magical pope:
Pope Francis’ newly chosen Spanish cardinal, 84-year-old Fernando Sebastian Aguilar, has described homosexuality as a “defect” that can be corrected with treatment, sparking condemnation from gay rights groups.

“A lot of people complain and don’t tolerate it but with all respect I say that homosexuality is a defective way of manifesting sexuality, because that has a structure and a purpose, which is procreation,” Sebastian told Malaga newspaper Sur.
Isn't it funny how it's always the sexless old Catholic priests who really know all the ins and outs of sex? Makin' babies. That's all it's for. So all you people out there doing the deed for fun had better stop. Elsewise, after you die you'll go to a nonexistent place called Hell. Horrors! Oh, wait. Maybe it's the ornery, newly-made cardinal who's going to Hell. What a startling turn of events!
Gay and lesbian rights group Colegas called on the archbishop to retract his comment.

“We hope that Fernando Sebastian will correct his words and we note that homosexuality is not a curable disease, but homophobia is,” it said in a statement.
Homosexuality is a perfectly normal state of affairs. Homophobia, however, is a hateful aberration that can be corrected. Good point. Let's hope the locals drive it home.

And as for pope Frankie, boooooooo!
