The recent news that Vatican decided to ban homosexuals from joining the seminaries (see here) is definitely triggering the human right advocate’s attention. After all, isn’t it another hit on the poor gays after even Mr. Terminator himself is on their… tail? Where is democracy, equal rights, respecting of those who are not alike others? Let’s take a look.
What the Catholic Church is? I think I can say it is a private non-profit organization, specializing on various religion-related stuffs like ceremonies, events and promotion of its popinions. As such, they are perfectly free to ban from its top membership atheists, women, arabs, those who read Harry Potter, those with broken nose, those whose name starts with “z”, gays and punks. I’m perfectly fine with that.
