"It is startling that those in the media and academia appear most disturbed by this aberrant behavior, since they have zealously promoted moral relativism by sanctioning "private" moral matters such as alternative lifestyles. Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture. When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm...."Let's take a closer look at this completely asanine statment:
(1) In a crude attempt to confuse the American public, Santorum has intentionally conflated two separate and completely different issues: consensual homosexual encounters between adults
and the molestation of children
. It's like saying underage kids often drink and drive so adults should not be allowed to own cars. It takes a genuine fucking idiot to be swayed by such a foolish and dishonest argument.
(2) ".... it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm...."
Funny that we did not hear of a single case of pedophilia in continental Europe - a bastion of cultural liberalism which makes Boston look Puritan by comparison. And hey Santorum, you fucking douchebag, you wanna know why Boston was at the heart of the scandals? Perhaps its because Massachusetts is the most Catholic state in t he United States
(3) "When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected."
What the fuck does this even mean? This statement is pure unabated drivel. The scandal involved the Catholic Church, one of the most staunchly socially conservative institutions in the United States. If it were liberalism that was causing molestation, wouldn't we expect to see Harvard or Yale or some other liberal ivory tower institution named in a child molestation suit? Santorum, you really are a fucking douche.
On a much broader note, as pornography has become more widespread, and as family values have eroded further and further, this country has witnessed an unprecedented drop in crime, and a renewed era of economic prospertiy.... for more see: http://ragingpundits.com/?p=227
