Wayan’s going to need another river

Wayan may have thought that the hatin’ started when you cross the Potomac but it seems that anti-gay measures flank DC on both sides. The Post reports today that the trifecta of cornhole-phobia this week is comprised of Pittsburg, North Carolina and Baltimore. The writer reports that the Catholic Bishops statement compares same-sex attraction to the temptations of “envy, malice or greed” and politely queries Bishop Arthur J. Serratelli how he can then claim the release is intended to be “positive, pastoral and welcoming.” The article includes without comment the real comic content further on: the statement out of the Baptist Convention that “in our day and time, no other sin marches so defiantly across our national landscape.”

I think you forgot gluttony, Buddy. 66% of the adult population is overweight or obese and 19% of kids ages 6 to 11 are overweight. Maybe the Baptists replaced math class with intelligent design classes so I’ll give them a hint: 66% is more than “one in ten.”

Hmmm, they did say “marches.” Maybe that omits sins that waddle?

    Who needs science when you’ve got religion giving you the facts?
