Will the next Pope be black?

Or will the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) lobby oppose Peter Cardinal Turkson Peter Cardinal Turkson of Ghana because he adheres to Catholic teaching about sexuality, marriage and procreation? Or, might it be that  he dares to suggest homosexuality has something to do with priest abusing young men. Or in the word of so many LGBTQ people because he "hates" LGBTQ people.

The astute Pat Hickey courageously examines the question on his blog, With Both Hands and says what no LGBTQ-fearing man dare say.

  • Thanks Dennis. We have no need to fear our gay brothers and sisters, per the Religious Freedom and Gay Marriage Act. We do however need to respond to folly.

  • So you attribute the clerical child abuse to homosexuality. By the same reasoning rape is caused by heterosexuality. Sexual orientation is not the issue here, but criminal behavior is. Including the crime of covering up the crime.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    By your reasoning, perhaps, Jerry.

    However, the statement by the researcher for the NHS indicated that 80% of the abuse cases had to do with homosexual priests and adolescent males.

  • The second Black pope? If Gelasius I was Black, I guess that makes St. Augustine Black too.

    Mr. Hickey, you got to check your facts.

  • :"The second Black pope? If Gelasius I was Black, I guess that makes St. Augustine Black too"

    N, Jerry he'd be the fourth black Pope
