Apparently a Cardinal – that’s some big wig in the Catholic Church, not to be confused with the bird of the same name that happens to be Virginia’s ‘official’ bird of the Commonwealth – anyway, some Cardinal is warning politicians not to cross the church on its teachings or they may risk all kinds of bad stuff. I suppose St. Pauline St. Croix of the Holy Lamp may come down and smite them with a flaming crucifix or some such thing.
Well, I’m not sure how much authority I’d give to an old, unmarried guy who runs around molesting teenage boys. No. If I were a politician, I’d tell him to keep your little round bland pieces of stale bread and cheap wine and shove ’em where the sun don’t shine. Although, that’s probably what they do anyway for laughs.
Special Aside/Note: Since I AM Catholic – piously non-practicing mind-you – I can say such dastardly things and get away with it. Nanny nanny boo boo… (you know the rest).
