The most hilarious (and by “hilarious”, I mean “soul crushingly painful”) part of this situation is that the Catholic Church is desperately clinging to some notion of the capital-“H” Homosexual as a dangerous, predatory figure so that it can avoid confronting itself about the harsh realities of a few bad apples that they’ve allowed to spoil the bunch.
“We shouldn’t provide an easy route to citizenship. We’re the only country that I know that allows people to come in illegally, have a baby, and then that baby becomes a citizen. And I think that should stop.”—Rand Paul’s solution to the illegal immigration problem.

How many dishes must I put away Behind towers of pale porcelain Until they can lay a plate upon its stack Without much more than the softest clink? My mother’s hands were always her best feature. When will my hands become mine?
