Bedfellows and Partners in Crime
In recent times, it seems like religion, including Islam, the Catholic Church, the Republican Party and the Religious Right keep getting hit by sex scandals – gay sex scandals – every other week. What is going on? Are these institutions loosing their grip on their members? Or are the members no longer believing or following the institutional moral compass? Or is there a double standard?

Religious Hypocrisy and Arrogance - Maninha
First of all it is not ''our condemnation'' or judgement that forces them undeground it is their own making, they are the ones that decided to live an natural life (virgin for life) they are the ones that said homosexuality is unnatural. They created and defined their own judgement. Their hypocrisy and arrogance lies elsewhere, Pedophilia, is their sin the current Pope relocated priests in order to proctect them and allow them to carry on with their crimes.

Religious Hypocrisy and Arrogance - Carl
This is perhsaps one of the best written articles ever! Thank you for your insight into this not so uncommon situation. Speaking as an African-American gay male I find it "no big deal" and "much ado about nothing" about being gay. I still have to live, eat, work and go about my daily life. The recent events in the Catholic Church may be the catalyst to affect a change because indeed the Church like many religious denominations are hypocritical. R. Okyne, thanks again for this. - Monday 29 March 2010 - 20:50

Religious Hypocrisy and Arrogance - Pagle

Religious Hypocrisy and Arrogance - Jawad
The article was not based on facts, the claim that homosexuality is related to genetics or sexual orientation is based on a hypothesis. Early studies that reported differences in the brains of homosexuals were complicated by HIV infection and were not substantiated by larger, better controlled studies. The information about islam is not based on the teachings of Islam. Islam is a way of life and is based on the Quran and Sunnah of the prophet(s.a.w), not on how some so called followers practice. - Saturday 13 March 2010 - 13:08
