I'm not suggesting that its the exact same thing happening with homosexuals, I wouldnt make the comparison between homosexual men and predators or peadophiles that is too readily made sometimes, but if the news of things like this keeps circulating I'd only expect one result.
When the ancien regimes said that the masonic lodges where hotbeds of revolutionary activity prior to the French revolution revolutionaries flocked to them and it became a self-fufilling prophecy.
I'm very, very surprised at the RC church sharing any sort of platform with Mormons to be honest, very surprised, there's a history there which is not amicable in the least.There's some solid evidence that the Mormons and Catholics coordinated to help get Proposition 8 (which revoked gay marriage in California) passed:
Or for example, being involved in organizing an anti-gay marriage protest in Argentina, or making ultimatums in DC about having to stop providing sevices if same sex marriage passes.
So I certainly agree that although the Catholic church doesn't have direct political control, it seems to be reasonably active politically on issues it sees as important.
So far as actively resisting redefinition or reconceptualisation of marriage I'm glad to see its happening, I think its important that opposition isnt forced out onto the fringes where fascists or haters will exploit the issue to make political capital of it.
