Don't Give Us None Of Your Aggravation

It seems the popular musician Sir Elton John thinks religion should be banned - we're all so beastly to gays, you see. The Dunadan has a much better treatment of this than I could ever manage.

2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
-The Catechism of the Catholic Church

So full of hatred, eh?

Am I alone in being concerned at the glib way in which public figures like Elton John or Richard Dawkins feel that organisations, groups, thoughts and beliefs should be banned?

[I penned a little ditty in Sir Elton's honour when this post was written but I've deleted it, as it was uncharitable]

The gay 'community' - so full of love....
