As we forgive those who trespass...nah, screw that

There's nothing that gets a religious nutjob - well, nuts - like abortion. Albeit bringing up stem cell research, climate change, evolution and just science in general certainly holds the capacity to make their minds melt, something strikes these people right in the soft, gooey ravines of their soul when you bring up killing children or babies.

Of course, when we do that in Afghanistan after dropping bombs that look like food packets, it's no big deal - but that is neither here nor there. Or anywhere, really.
But you really gotta give a slow clap to Reverend John Malloy and the Chicago Archdiocese of America for being a paradigm of hope to all of the moral world. You see, the Archdiocese authored a prayer for Teddy Kennedy in his passing. Rev. Malloy, pissed off as all hell that an abortionist babykiller death dealer was specifically mentioned, immediately demanded the Archdiocese rescind their prayer for that booze hound, or at least change the wording.
The original prayer said: "For those who have given their lives to service to their country, promoting values of peace, justice, equality, and liberty; especially, Senator Edward M. Kennedy, that he may find his eternal reward in the arms of God. . . . We pray."
A number of Catholics howled about that language because Kennedy was a strong supporter of abortion rights.
The prayer was rewritten in a more generic fashion: "For all our beloved dead, especially (particular parish intentions), and for Senator Edward M. Kennedy, that they may find their eternal reward in the arms of God. We pray."
Real friggin' classy, guys. I'm sure our kind and merciful God is really proud of you. Unless, of course, any of you are pro-abortion. Then you're pretty much fucked.
