Nut Jobs Of The World Unite!

The local rag ran this letter today. The headline reads, "Play is a taste of Catholics' own medicine."

"I am proud that the University of Minnesota plans to present "The Pope and the Witch."

"Sensitive Catholics should sit in my shoes for a day and hear how their antigay rhetoric, homophobic behind-the-scenes manipulation of public opinion and out-and-out lobbying to keep me from marrying sound to me.
"Bigotry? Yes. Pure hatred for me? Absolutely. Yet any portrayal of the pope other than saintly is "Catholic bashing."
As a former Catholic, I think if they dish it, they should shut up and take it, too.
STEPHEN M. DENT, MINNEAPOLIS"

No offense, Steve, but the idea of "sitting in your shoes" is just plain disgusting. Note to Star Tribune editors: don't you have anyone on staff to catch that kind of thing?

Ha! Since when does the Strib fail to print something critical/hateful of the Catholic church?

Mr. Dent is a business consultant in town. He probably has friends at the paper.

Business consultant? Is that what they're calling Catho-phobics these days?
