    I guess this is a bit radical, and meant to stir the controversy. But is it not accurate?

    It’s mostly accurate. It’s not that black people weren’t allowed in the church until 1978, they just weren’t allowed to be priests. And gay people are allowed to be in the church today. However to remain in “good standing” they have to live lives without love, intimacy and companionship, and sit each week hearing about how they’re responsible for the destruction of the family and society as we know it. And, of course, nobody who admits he’s gay will ever be allwed to be a priest. Technicalities, technicalities.
