After Easter we broke a story here on OBLOGDEE calling out the Ugandan Catholic Bishop for anti-homosexuality remarks he made and his prior support of “The Kill the Gays Bill” which has now been enacted, to exclude the death penalty, but to include life in prison for gays. Now a petition, in Italian, has acquired over 5,000 signatures urging the Pope to take action against the Bishop.
The Petition, translated from Italian reads:
During Easter, the bishop Bishop Rt. Rev. Fr.

  1. Signed. This Pope, I think he is cleaning house, not quickly enough but I believe he is. These Bishops of the church, they go their own way ignoring the Pope who is the Voice of God on earth and who has the Ear of God on earth, what does that tell you about the corruption of The Church, still.

    This is why The Church continues to rot from within.

    • I sure hope he does. This Ugandan bishop advocated for the jailing, prosecution and implied killings of those in the LGBT community in Uganda. The lady who wrote that post, Melanie Nathan is a personal friend in California …. she’s an incredible human being. Originally from South Africa, living in LA. A log worth following devoted to LGBT issues.
