    Default Catholic Hate Group? Activists Mobilize Around White House Online Petition

    I know I am stirring up a wasps nest with this but felt it was only fair I post this since I am always posting articles about Westboro Baptist church. I have my own opinions about the whole gay marriage subject and I would not necessarily agree with the way the Pope is handling this. This is definitely not the way my priests have discussed it during Mass. But there are countless Christian denominations that are against gay marriage and I am quite sure other religions are against it too.
    (RNS) The White House's novel online system for allowing citizens to petition the administration on any number of causes has led to various unintended consequences: petitions to secede from the U.S. following President Obama's re-election; a petition for Vice President Joe Biden to star in a reality show; and a petition for the government to disclose its secret archives on extraterrestrials.

    Now there is a petition to designate the Roman Catholic Church as a hate group for its opposition to gay rights, and it may wind up generating almost as many press releases as signatures.
    Just wondering why the Catholic church is being singled out here. I would have to agree with this sentence:
    As of Jan. 4, "Zach N," however, had a counterpart of sorts in "Patrick T," who started another petition demanding that the "bigoted" people who signed the petition demanding that the Catholic Church be listed as a hate group should themselves be designated as a hate group. So far, the counter-petition has generated fewer than 900 signatures.

    What are the ET's Gay? What does gay marriage and the Catholic Church have anything to do with the possibility of ET's secretly working with the government? This article doesn't make any sense, and besides, it is the state legislators that decide the tax code for marriages not the Catholic Church.
