John Corvino

Religious conservatives' obsession with anal sex is particularly troubling when it's used to disguise negative visceral reactions as considered moral judgments -- in other words, when our opponents move from "that's yucky" to "that's wrong!" I confront that tendency in this video.

Baby steps. That was my reaction to the Easter weekend comments of Cardinal Dolan, the affable Archbishop of New York, about gays and the Church. I give the man credit for taking a more positive and welcoming tone. But it's also a sign of how low the bar is set.
