ambivalent about his death

i swore i wouldn’t blog about him, but after blog-hopping and seeing so many people mourn him online, i couldn’t help but just leave my words around and point out — he’s the same guy who said gay people should not be extended the same rights as hets, the same guy who gave his blessing to ratzinger’s anti-feminist rants, the one who said abortion is wrong at all costs, etc. sure he may have spoken out against injustice, but there were some backyard issues he couldn’t come to terms with, like women as priests, celibacy, etc.

i don’t mean to be harsh, but i’m not exactly teary-eyed over his memories either.

so okay, i still would like to pay my last respects, for the man who heads the church into which i was unknowingly baptized (at birth). rest in peace, sir. i guess the good you did was worth it.
