I'm getting tired

of reading of and hearing people say that something someone else has said is 'hurtful', suggesting that therefore they shouldn't say it, because it might hurt someone's feelings. Anything someone says might hurt someone else's feelings. That doesn't make it a crime, or hateful.

Cardinal Francis George Warns That Chicago Gay Pride Parade Might 'Morph Into Ku Klux Klan'

They want to be respected. Are they going to parade past the church in a respectful manner or are they going to mock the Church, dress in clothes that are deliberately provocative, dress like gay nuns, and so on? The things they usually do at these parades? If they do, then they're the ones being hurtful. But that's OK because they're gay and Catholic bashing is an acceptable action. Hating Catholics is the last acceptable prejudice...
