A city named after a saint, yet so anti-Catholic

Someone posted a link to this on my blog today.

A San Francisco city and county board resolution that officially labeled the Catholic church's moral teachings on homosexuality as "insulting to all San Franciscans," "hateful," "defamatory," "insensitive" and "ignorant" will be challenged tomorrow in court for violating the Constitution's prohibition of government hostility toward religion.

Resolution 168-08, passed unanimously by the City and County of San Francisco Board of Supervisors two years ago, also accused the Vatican of being a "foreign country" meddling with and attempting to "negatively influence (San Francisco's) existing and established customs."

It said of the church's teaching on homosexuality, "Such hateful and discriminatory rhetoric is both insulting and callous, and shows a level of insensitivity and ignorance which has seldom been encountered by this Board of Supervisors."

I thought that all of you who have no problem electing homosexual or pro-homosexual politicians, such Sen. Obama, Sen. Clinton, Raskin (MD), Sen. R. Madaleno (MD) may want to think twice.

Maybe it is time for a boycott of the City by the Bay.

Ironic that the charge of a foreign country meddling in existing and established customs comes from a community where constituents have advocated a constitutional amendment to allow a non-natural born citizen to run for president.

Another intersting insight into "the devil within" can be found in Austin Ruse's informative article. Perhaps our Archdiocese has been the victim of "wolves in sheep clothing". The article below is very informative.
