Former Truth Wins Out Communications Director John Becker wrote an interesting piece yesterday at back2stonewall:
Just days after Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia shockingly equated homosexuality with murder in an appearance at Princeton University, another troubling revelation has emerged: Scalia’s son Paul, a Roman Catholic priest, has served as chaplain for the Arlington, Virginia chapter of Courage, an official Catholic apostolate that ministers to people with so-called “same-sex attractions” — or what the rest of the world refers to as lesbian, gay, and bisexual people.
Courage, the “ministry” that Paul 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.
Antonin Scalia is such a shill for the extreme conservative movement. He is about the most biased judge I have ever seen and sullies the name of the court. He should recuse himself from marriage equality cases — for he is not fair and impartial.
Good work on Becker’s part for tracking this down.
