Speaking of ferries, the Vatican has issued a statement telling Catholic political leaders that it is their sacred duty to press for laws condemning gay marriages. No immediate word from those same Vatican officials on whether they also plan to condemn priests who molest little boys. As George Bush himself said yesterday: "I am mindful we are all sinners, and caution those who may try to remove the speck out of the neighbor's eye when they've got a log in their own." It would seem that given some of the things we have learned over the last two years, the Catholic church has an entire forest in its eye.
In the same press conference yesterday, the President also said that the White House will seek to "codify" marriages as the sacred union between man and wife, "unless you're the Clintons."
