Tolerant? What is that?

Another in the “I sit here and shake my head” file.

The head of the Catholic Church in Belgium has said that AIDS is “intrinsic justice” for homosexuality.

Yep – “intrinsic justice”!!!

It get’s better – he also thinks that priests who abuse children (but are no longer working) should not be punished.

Priests who abused children in their care must be made aware of what they did but if they’re no longer working, if they have no responsibilities, I’m not sure that exercising a sort of vengeance that will have no concrete result is humane.

It just staggers belief.


YouTube Fun Thread

Been a little “bleh” with the Australian political scene lately. Joe Hockey has been talking populist crap (recovering to saner levels of late though), Wayne Swan replied with trash-talk (along with a promise to do “something” but not reveal what that would be), and Abbott has been stirring the xenophobic stewpot with predictable results.

Combine that with the Democrat bloodbath in the US (not at all unexpected) and the Tea Partiers (& their media tart promoters/puppeteers) claiming it was all down to them (as opposed to it perhaps being a retaliation to the party in control during a major, ongoing economic crisis for the country), and I honestly needed an upper.

And I found it on the page YouTube gave me whilst it told me the tutorial video I was waiting for (and had paid for) was too long and hence would not be hosted on YouTube. It’s a battle between talented artists… just watch & remember to click the little red boxes to go to the next one (embedding doesn’t allow the auto-follow that occurs on YouTube proper).

Thought that if there is anyone else out there feeling a little stressed and needing a pickup, we could dedicate this thread to some YouTube awesomeness. Not a “video hits” show, but more a “Funniest Home Online Videos” we all put together.

Have at it folks.
