Who said this?...

"Homosexuals should not be allowed in positions where they are able to exert influence upon young people"

No, it was not a Catholic priest.

No, it was not a pastor of any Christian church.

No, it was not me.

No, it was not a friend of mine.

No, it was not anyone I know.

No, it was not George W. Bush.

It was...

Fidel Castro on transferring homosexuals to concentration camps

Castro had a "Campaign against social deviants." That's Castro folks, NOT the Catholic Church!

Groups such as homosexuals, Jehovas Witnesses, and other minorities were locked up in concentration camps in the 1960s, where they were subject to medical-political "re-education".[63][64] Castro's admiring description of rural life in Cuba ("in the country, there are no homosexuals"[65]) reflected the idea of homosexuality as bourgeois decadence, and he denounced "maricones" (faggots) as "agents of imperialism".

And the LEFT (and no doubt many homosexuals) in this country swoon over this guy and slobber their lavish praise for Castro these days all over the place. What??? Maybe they need to READ HISTORY! Talk about REAL "hate speech!" Practicing, faithful Catholics and other Christians are labled by the LEFT as 'racist' 'biggots' and 'homo phobes' continuously. Well, whaddya know? Why do they LOVE and think Castro's the best thing since "green lightbulbs?" Wake up LEFTIES...smell the dissident coffee and start protesting the hate going on in Cuba that's been going on for 50 years. We Catholics don't hate gays, blacks or anyone. We're more tolerant of others than any of your so-called 'heroes' who imprison and torture Catholics and other Christians. Whaddya say, Bill Maher? How about you, Janeane Garofalo? Are you gonna attack Castro for his outrageous hate mongering Communist beliefs? Or are you such a pansy coward that you only attack Catholics, who're doing more good in the world than you ever will. Please.

But I do have to hand it to Castro for this, after Pope JPII's visit in 1998 when he:

[Castro] condemned the use of abortion as a form of birth control.[161]

Hey, President Obama, how about at least going along with that one, huh?

And...I find this a tad remarkable as well, since Christmas Day is bashed here more and more every year by vicious anti-religious hate-mongering atheists:

In December 1998, Castro formally re-instated Christmas Day as the official celebration for the first time since its abolition by the Communist Party in 1969.[162] Cubans were again allowed to mark Christmas as a holiday and to openly hold religious processions. The Pope sent a telegram to Castro thanking him for restoring Christmas as a public holiday.[163]
Castro attended a Roman Catholic convent blessing in 2003. The purpose of this unprecedented event was to help bless the newly restored convent in Old Havana and to mark the fifth anniversary of the Pope's visit to Cuba.[164]
The seniormost spiritual leader of the Orthodox Christian faith arrived in Cuba in 2004, the first time any Orthodox Patriarch has visited Latin America in the Church's history: Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I consecrated a cathedral in Havana and bestowed an honor on Fidel Castro.[165] His aides said that he was responding to the decision of the Cuban Government to build and donate to the Orthodox Christians a tiny Orthodox cathedral in the heart of old Havana.[166]
After Pope John Paul II's death in April 2005, an emotional Castro attended a mass in his honor in Havana's cathedral and signed the Pope's condolence book at the Vatican Embassy.[167] He had last visited the cathedral in 1959, 46 years earlier, for the wedding of one of his sisters. Cardinal Jaime Lucas Ortega y Alamino led the mass and welcomed Castro, who was dressed in a black suit, expressing his gratitude for the "heartfelt way the death of our Holy Father John Paul II was received (in Cuba)."[168]
