A lot of gheyfolk who formerly loved Pope Francis because he seemed to be socialist and metrosexual have now decided they hate him because he met with Kim Davis (who was the object of last month’s left-wing hatefest) and because, oh yeah, he fired a gay priest from his job at The Vatican. So, now they’ve decided he’s either a homophobic racist tea-bagger, or a victim of the anti-gay mafia or something.
The thing is, though, Monsignor Krzysztof Charamsa wasn’t fired for being gay; he was fired for being in a gay relationship. “What’s the difference?” gay lefties may ask. Actually, as explained by Mollie Hemingway, it’s a pretty big difference that can be summarized thusly:
Gay priests are not allowed to have boyfriends.
Lesbian nuns are not allowed to have girlfriends.
Straight nuns are not allowed to have boyfriends.
Straight priests are not allowed to have girlfriends.
Equality isn’t one-way street, it also means you have to play by the same rules as everybody else.
