    Hi – I just found this and intend to find out more and to do something. I am a Roman Catholic. I am a gay member of the Roman Catholic Church. I am not doing the things I am accused of – but then in fairness I guess that people aren’t accusing me of doing it. I guess they are just not considering how they use language. If we mean the Vatican, say the Vatican. If we mean the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church lets say that too. Let’s not say Roman Catholic Church when that isn’t an accurate reflection of the people we are talking about. The press do it all the time and its not in any way helpful.
