Since I can't manage that, though, let's talk about the real chumps in the whole gay "marriage" thing: my fellow Catholics.
Sometimes I'm tempted to believe that at least 75% of the people who call themselves Catholics in America haven't got enough of the brains the good God gave them to be able to blow their own noses without serious risk of self-injury. This just goes to prove it (hat tip: the Deacon's Bench):
One of the more interesting findings of the poll is that white Catholic voters approve of the 53-year-old Cuomo by almost 3-to-1, or 62 percent to 22 percent, despite the Catholic Church’s staunch opposition to the gay marriage bill, which the Senate passed Friday and Cuomo signed shortly thereafter.
“It’s up, up and away for super-Andrew after the close of the legislative session,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “Governor Cuomo’s job approval is high, even among Republicans, and almost 3-1 among Catholics.
Please note: my assumption that my fellow Catholics, especially 62% of the New York ones, are startlingly unintelligent and deeply brainless and almost completely ignorant about the Catholic faith is the most charitable assumption I can make. Otherwise I would have to think that 62% of my fellow Catholics in New York were non-practicing indifferentists, heretics and/or apostates, and that, my friends, would be awfully judgmental of me, as would the corresponding assumption that the Church in New York is a total and absolute failure in the area of proper catechetics, especially in matters dealing with the Church's teaching on marriage and the family--and it's not like scandalously high divorce, abortion, and contraception rates among New York Catholics already illustrate that, or anything.
UPDATE: To avoid confusion, let me state the following (some of which I said in response to a commenter): this post is meant to be tongue-in-cheek humor. I actually do believe that most Catholics in America have very little understanding of Catholic moral issues because they, like most Americans, have almost no training in philosophy or logic. In addition to the decline in quality catechesis, most Catholics are wallowing in a syrupy moral mess where the only commandment God ever gives anybody is, "Always be as nice as possible!" The corollary to this commandment is: good is that which is sort of nice and makes people feel good about themselves, while bad is that which is sort of mean and makes people experience a loss of self-esteem. In that calculation, divorce, homosexual sex, fornication, pornography use, and similar ills can be called "good," while the Church's rules about marriage are "bad" and "hurtful."
You'll hear this sort of nonsense a lot from Catholics who have never heard of Aquinas, let alone any Catholic philosopher who came after his time, and who have no idea what morality actually is, or how, absent a lot of sugary sentimentality, to figure out if something is good or bad, pleasing or displeasing to God--which is the only moral calculation that really matters.
