From the Archdiocese in Guam, in response to a bill to recognize same-sex partnerships:

The culture of homosexuality is a culture of absorption because it does not value self-sacrifice. It is a glaring example of what John Paul II has called the culture of death. Islamic fundamentalists clearly understand the damage that homosexual behavior inflicts on a culture. That is why they repress such behavior with death. Their culture is anything but one of self-absorption. It may be brutal at times, but any culture that is able to produce wave after wave of suicide bombers (women as well as men) is a culture that at least knows how to value self-sacrifice.

Well, in his defense, he DID say that terrorism is an awful, no good, very bad thing.

Just understandable, is all.

Which makes the statement okey-dokey.

I just had deja vu back to that comment Bill Maher made just after 9/11…

Mebbe, but he was responding to a specific charge of cowardice, saying, in effect, whatever else these guys were, they weren’t cowards.

Maybe it is similar, but I don’t think he was speaking admiringly of their commitment.
