It is disingenuous to post headlines implying that it was the US State of Georgia and Catholic priests, it was neither.

Where did subby imply Catholic priests?

I don't think it implied that was US. That's your brain doing that; expecting a 'out'.

FTA: "
The attack comes amid an increase in antigay talk in Russia and Georgia, whose Orthodox churches are gaining political influence.

In a statement Wednesday, the leader of the Georgian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Ilia II, compared homosexuals to drug addicts and called the rally a "violation of the rights of the majority" of Georgians.
 "..

can you tell me why this wasn't promoted by "Catholic"  priests? Or maybe don't count Greek and only count Irish Roman Catholics, No?

Only a fecking moron would assume either of those on just a headline.

Please point out where subby implied either of those things.

In a telephone interview, Mr. Vacharadze of Identoba said that priests from the Georgian Orthodox Church had led the charge that broke through a heavy police corridor.


"The priests entered, the priests broke the fences and the police didn't stop them, because the priests are above the law in Georgia," he said.


Not just in Georgia, man.  Churches are pretty-much given a pass everywhere.  In the US, when they're not given a big enough pass, or government just looks the other way instead of actively supporting them, they biatch and moan about persecution.

I've always wondered if that was truth or sarcasm. You see, I have some faith in humanity and would default to troll alert. On the other hand, I'm an American and a Southerner, so it really could go either way. I know people like this. Hell, we all do.

Well, it is on yahoo answers, so I'm more inclined to think it's real.

And yes, I know people like this and I don't even live in the South. Unfortunately some of them reproduced too. :/

What you should ask yourself is, "Why is the idea that it took place in the USA state of Georgia and was lead by Catholic priests so plausible?"

Did you ever stop to wonder why people would even see that as a plausible occurance in the United States to begin with before you posted that disclaimer?
 
2013-05-18 05:35:17 AM  
I was thinking the US state at first, too, but then I noticed the first word after the headline was MOSCOW and felt foolish.

But then again, maybe I can just blame subby for not spoon feeding every detail into the headline.

Unfortunately, the South has no monopoly on morons...I had a sergeant in my old Reserve unit ask me, completely seriously, how many windows were on my computer once...my lieutenant, without missing a beat, said "3.1", then could NOT stop laughing...

This picture is from 52 years ago to the day (May 17th) of the beating of the protestors in Georgia. It is the beating of the Freedom Riders in Birmingham, AL. What is up with protestors, buses, and angry young white guys in mid May in the South?

Everything about that farking article is goddamn appalling, but this:

the leader of the Georgian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Ilia II, compared homosexuals to drug addicts and called the rally a "violation of the rights of the majority"

really makes my blood boil.

Also:

"We are trying to protect our orthodoxy, not to let anyone to wipe their feet on our faith,"

WTF?
