Perhaps He Didn't See That Video About the Policeman and the Priest

Bishop fears gay thugs!

This just in from Reuters:

Bishop Under Police Guard After Gay Comment

Yeah, because you know how violent those crazy queers get, riots and everything. Thug life! Okay, you got me on Stonewall (but Judy Garland died, fer chrissakes).

"ROME: The head of Italy's bishops conference was under police guard after someone spray painted 'shame' on the doors of his cathedral over his comparison of gay rights to incest and pedophilia.

"A police spokeswoman said Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco was being accompanied by an escort after graffiti reading 'Shame on You Bagnasco' appeared at the San Lorenzo Cathedral in the northern city of Genoa on Monday."

Holy cats. "Shame on you"?? Next those militant homos will be chalking the sidewalk asking him where he got that fabulous robe. Somebody call out the OVRA!
