Anyone who incites this much insanity from the dogmatic conservative wing of the Catholic Church deserves my support. Check out the misogynistic, anti-gay, anti-choice drivel being spewed by these clowns (the bolds were added by me for highlighting):

WASHINGTON, May 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today Catholic Families for America, one of the largest groups of lay Catholics in the country, announced its opposition to the nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court, citing "grave concerns" about her promotion of same-sex "marriage" and abortion, as well as a "dangerous internationalism" that has become fashionable among leftist jurists.

To galvanize citizens' concerns, particularly those of Catholic voters, CFA has initiated a nationwide petition that it will forward to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The petition can be signed.

"By nominating Miss Kagan to the Supreme Court, the president continues to demonstrate a brass-knuckles, Chicago-mobster mentality toward unifying our nation," said Dr. Kevin Roberts, executive director of CFA. "Naming someone who has been so actively hostile to traditional marriage and to the unborn lays bare the president's pro-abortion, anti-family agenda, in spite of what he says to the contrary."

Roberts also expressed considerable angst over Kagan's lurch toward so-called "international law," which he described as "a disturbing, fashionable trend among leftist jurists." He explained further, "By citing foreign laws in their American jurisprudence, liberal judges not only violate the sovereignty of the American people, but also advance a dangerous assault on the notion of the family. This is an affront to Catholic Church teaching, and we are, therefore, adamantly opposed to any public figure who promotes this thinking."

I love how they put the word marriage in quotation marks after the term same-sex, to mock and de-legitimize it. Also love the Chicago stereotyping. Right out of the Limbaugh/Hannity play book.

As I like to say to these freaks: my karma ran over your dogma.
