A gay couple now lives in a flat that was left to the former pope by a “devout Catholic” woman in Madrid. Predictably, the Catholics are outraged.

The Pinoy Catholic writes despondently:

The Web site commented “The gay couple, who are now married, also against the Church’s wishes, now enjoy dinner parties showing the escrituras (deeds) of the flat with the name of the Pope.” [He never lived in the place.  Obviously, the journalist and the gay couple WANT to draw attention, which they got, which irritates a devout Catholic like me. Cheap trick, isn’t it?  Well, as they say in the PR world, “Any publicity is good publicity.] [emphasis mine]

2010: Catholics still outraged over the existence of gay people.

(TPC: I laugh at you!)

(TPC is chock-full of Catholic nonsense about fairies, demons, exorcists and stuff. I bet he’d welcome some atheist trolls guests readers, I mean readers!)

Some moar Catholic existential angst from Clerical Whispers:

When a devout Catholic woman left her home in … in Madrid, to Pope John Paul II, she probably didn’t expect its future occupants to be a couple of homos. [emphasis mine]

OH NOEZ NOT THE HOMOS!!!11! BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW!!!!!

A typically non-humorous example of religionist humour:

Might we score an invitation?

We know of this delicious amuse bouche wafer.

Aw shucks.  Is this the time of the year when we desecrate hosts again?

Meanwhile, the Universe continues cruelly not to care.
