"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

John Edwards hates Catholics.

Read and learn, kiddies, as The Miracle Worker's hired harridans attack people who believe in something other than the power of men.

From The Washington Times:

More on Edwards and the bloggers
Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards today denounced the "anti-Catholic" remarks in blogs by two of his campaigns Web chiefs but said he would give them a "fair shake" and keep them on the job.

"The tone and the sentiment of some of Amanda Marcotte's and Melissa McEwen's posts personally offended me," Mr. Edwards said. "It's not how I talk to people, and it's not how I expect the people who work for me to talk to people."

However, he said that "everyone is entitled to their opinion" and he took the women at their word that they didn't intend to "malign anyone's faith."

Earlier today, the Family Research Council called out Mr. Edwards for hiring the bloggers.

The traditional-values group criticized Ms. Marcotte, who is Mr. Edwards' new blogmaster, for missives such as, "The Pope's gotta tell women who give birth to stillborns that their babies are cast into Satan's maw. ... The Catholic Church is not about to let something like compassion for girls get in the way of using the state as an instrument to force women to bear more tithing Catholics."

They fault Ms. McEwan, Mr. Edwards' Internet outreach coordinator, for demanding the "wing-nut Cristo-fascist base [keep] your noses our of our britches, our bed and our families."

The council passed on these relatively tame passages because the women's "scathing personal blogs, littered with profanity and barbs about the Pope [are] too obscene to reprint."

Catholic groups have called on Mr. Edwards to fire the bloggers.

Ms. Marcotte said entries about religion on her personal blog, Pandagon, are "generally satirical [and] intended strictly as a criticism of public policies and politics."

Ms. McEwen said she didn't expect Mr. Edwards to share the views expressed on her personal blog, Shakespeare's Sister.

"We do, however, share many views -- including an unwavering support of religious freedom and a deep respect for diverse beliefs," she said. "It has never been my intention to disparage people's individual faith, and I'm sorry if my words were taken in that way."

About Me

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
