Democrats Petition White House To Label Catholic Church A “Hate Group”

White House petitioned to label Catholic Church a 'hate group'

An online petition asking the White House to designate the Catholic Church as a “hate group” for its views on marriage is drawing criticism for generating unjust animosity.

The petition reveals an “underlying agenda,” which is not simply to prevent violent crimes, but to “stigmatize any disapproval of homosexuality at all and essentially to silence us,” said Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C.

He explained to CNA on Jan. 3 that applying the “hate group” label to organizations that are morally opposed to redefining marriage is simply “name-calling designed to cut us out of the public debate.”

Initiated on Christmas Day, a petition on the White House website had collected 1,640 signatures by Jan. 3.

The petition – which is aiming for 25,000 signatures by Jan. 24 – argued that Pope Benedict XVI’s 2012 Christmas address to the College of Cardinals “demeaned and belittled homosexual people around the world.”

“Using hateful language and discriminatory remarks, the Pope painted a portrait in which gay people are second-class global citizens,” it charged.

One thing for sure, the actions of Obama show all of us he would agree with this petition.

If there is a God and that God is the God of Abraham, Issiah, and Jacob; The God of the Bible; then we're in trouble as a nation. Look at what's taking place in America with our political, economic, and natural conditions and you'll realize that judgement may be pouring out upon us. Our acceptance of homosexuality, stance towards Israel, and killing of our unborn children are all conditions which caused God to execute judgement upon other nations and even Israel in the Old Testament when Israel began to take up the beliefs of other people they encountered. This judgement didn't happen all at once but took place over a number of years. Is the greatest nation on Earth starting to feel that judgement?
