My Christmas Wish

Hello Catholics out there! I grew up in your religion before breaking my ties with the Church as a free-thinking adult with healthy self-esteem. There are so many things in Catholicism that represent the best of humanity, it's spiritual aspirations and practices. That's all the more reason that I cannot imagine how the majority of Catholics today stand by in silence and allow their Church's leader to engage in hate speech. Pope Benedict said today that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behavior was just as important as saving the rain forest from destruction.

You must feel so embarrassed when you hear such idiotic, dangerous nonsense spewing forth from your leader. Or do you simply not care? Ignorance of this sort must not stand!

Abolish the archaic, painfully misguided papacy, do away with hate speech and join the 21st Century in peace and love for ALL of humanity. If enough of you stood up to ignorance, you would give your Church the strength to change. This is my Christmas wish!
