Hey, Catholics! If you think they hate you...
...it's because they do!
Here is the thoughtful opening paragraph from Salon's latest reflection on the election of a new pope:
It’s easy — maybe too easy — for people with progressive political views to dismiss the Roman Catholic Church as a vile anachronism, a nightmarish patriarchy of aging pedophiles, woman-haters, homophobes and/or closet cases that can offer nothing of value to the contemporary world.
Salon should not be so shy about telling us what it really thinks.
