How can Andrew Sullivan be a strict Catholic on the death penalty
yet be gay?
He makes no sense - he's just a Catholic church apologist. He can't let it go and twists himself in nonsense.
Much like many believers.
What the hell does being gay have to do with being a Catholic or not, let alone being opposed to the death penalty (whether because you are Cahtolic or any other reason)?
Here's another question:
Why, lately, does it seem that almost everyone on this fucking website is an idiot?
And I should know!
r2 he just said he is against the death penalty because of his faith.....so then he should not be actively gay if he is so strict that his faith dictates what he thinks.
The only idiot here is you, R2. It's a totally legitimate question. Sullivan is the epitome of the cafeteria Catholic.
Some people consider "cafeteria Catholics" to be hypocrites -- it's a religion where you either believe in the hierarchy, or you don't.
Because he's quite bonkers, in case you haven't noticed.
I am against the death penalty. I don't believe in God.
Sullivan is just an ass. Is he still published somewhere?
He's a hypocrite, but at least he can chalk up his irrationality to AIDS Dementia Complex.
Only ten responses until we got to the AIDS dementia slur. Would Free Republic be any worse?
I'm beginning to think this is the most anti-gay website I know.
I used to try to read his books wherein he tried to explain some of this stuff. The writing was beautiful but trying to make sense of it made my head hurt. Then A.S. picked me up at a bar one night and I fucked him (w/ condom). (True) He was very good at it, and a perfect gentleman. I liked him better after that.
Granted, it's probably unfair to make an unqualified diagnosis, but get off your high horse, R11. ADC is recognized by the medical community and not some nasty slur invented by Freepers. Dumbass.
PROBABLY unfair, R13? Jeez, that's big of you.
Go to Free Republic or The Corner or RedState -- whenever they disagree with something Sullivan writes they dismiss it as the ravings of someone with AIDS dementia. That's the company you're keeping.
Of course ADC is something real. But using it to dismiss the ideas of gay people is AIDS-phobic, anti-gay and should be beneath this website.
I'd say his Catholicism is rooted in an Irish ethnic "us" vs. "them" (evil Anglicans) syndrome, and justifying his enthrallment now gives him a mental masturbation thrill.
Ah, our I hate "Sully-Milky Loads troll is back. It's been a few weeks since our last thread and he's back to try and slip one in.
I'll take a "cafeteria" Catholic like Sully over a rabid "devout" Catholic like Santorum.
I'm a pro-death penalty atheist. Sullivan is a tool and no one, conservative or liberal, likes or respects him.
Hall monitors are so tedious.
"Death penalty bad!"
"Massive extermination of Iraqis good!"
