The item on cohabitation being extended to same-sex couples (March 8) has attracted a lot of attention. It has brought out the vehement secularists but also the religious fanatics.
While I think that discussion is healthy, I take offence at a comment posted by a certain Edw. Ingo Formosa saying:
“The good news is:
“The US Centre for Disease Control has estimated that homosexual men account for 61 per cent of the new HIV infections in the United States while they only amount to about two per cent of the country’s population.”
This is pure homophobia.
In my opinion, it is a good thing that the government is recognising same-sex families.
After all, it is there to take care of the rights of everyone not just Catholics.
What I can’t understand is why Catholics (or a certain sector of them) hate humankind so much. What is it to them if homosexuals’ rights are acknowledged?
How does it affect their lives? Or is it that they just want to impose their warped vision of life on the rest of the country?
