I can't tell you how sick I am after reading John's post below about John McCusker, the guy who was denied a funeral by the Catholic Church.

I grew up Catholic, very Catholic. And I can tell you this, Catholics have a ritual to death....and it gives great pain to think of what that young man's family is going through. Not only is their 31 year old son and brother dead, but the place to which they turn for comfort, denies them.

It is just so unbelievable. Reading that story was like a punch in the gut.

The Catholic Church has caused much damage and pain to the very people who look to it for comfort....and I know from experience that includes gay people and their families. Too many families have let that fucked up institution define and ruin relationships.

The Catholic Church leadership is filled with men who are pedophiles and men who enabled pedophiles. The Diocese of San Diego has more than its fair share. You get the sense that the Church really thinks they have weathered that scandal. And attacking gays is, for them, a great way to change the subject. WRONG.

Just once, it would be nice if someone in that fucked up church would actually heed the words of that guy they are always talking about, Jesus Christ. Take for example, the Golden Rule, which is pretty much the basic message from Jesus: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

If that's the standard, and people treated the Church they way it treated people, man, those guys would have a lot coming to them.
