The soul has greater need of the ideal than the real for it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live

Benny and the Jets

So Benny's at it again.  The pope, (lowercase intentional) from his little cottage at Castel Gandolfo

which was paid for by the sweat of the brows of many an altar boy and his parents, weighs in yet again on laws that do not concern him. 

"Benedict, speaking before paying a historic visit to the U.K. later this week, said the Roman Catholic Church 'cannot approve of legal initiatives that imply a re-evaluation of the life of the couple and the family.' The pope, in a reference to legalized marriage among homosexuals, said such laws 'contribute to the weakening of the principles of natural law' and to 'confusion about society’s values.' He made his remarks today while receiving Germany’s new envoy to the Holy See at his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo south of Rome, according to a transcript posted on the Vatican’s website."-Bloomberg via Towleroad

I'm at a loss to understand how we can keep up the charade that there is a separation of church and state when the opinions of this Nazi are given any credence at all. 

On another and happier note, football season is beginning, which means there will be more of Tom Brady to see.  Thank the Gods.

And so it goes:
