    he referred to my marriage as a threat to humanity, how can that be interpreted as anything other than extremely offensive?

    Is it your contention that if a school dismissed a teacher for being gay, that this would be evidence that the school in question is anti-gay?

    lol Irish people get married in churches for the pomp and ceremony and they give the priest a few quid.

    Some Catholic organisations in some places have put money into this. Maybe they think changing the basic definition of marriage will compromise it's meaning across the board.

    AFAIK, you have to have some connection to the Parish in question, you have to seek permission to get married there and you have to undergo a marriage preparation course. Catholic marriage is not supposed to be for atheists.

    Nay, what was it called? Those founding father types were a mightily impressive bunch in general, I've got a particular fondness for Madison in particular ( apart from the whole slave-holding thing )

    the whole suggestion that the RCC is not anti gay is ridiculous, I spent many a lunch break in college defacing and destroying anti gay literature dispensed by the catholic chaplaincy.
