Quote of the Day

. . . Courage, the “ministry” that Paul Scalia [son of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia] was affiliated with, uses a 12-step program similar to Alcoholics Anonymous to encourage Catholics struggling with “same-sex attractions” to suppress their sexuality and live totally celibate lives. It’s essentially a Catholic version of the widely-discredited “ex-gay” programs, just wrapped in a more subtly-colored bow. . . .
