Most liberals in America assume their ideas on social change are the same as most people in the western world. Liberals believe they are on the side of the future, a world in which strict observance of fundamental religion belongs to the disappearing past. Father Giovanni Caralcoli represents the world that feels challenged by new ideas that clash with the world of his birth. He announced to the world discovery of an important scientific fact regarding recent earthquakes in Italy. NO, they are not the result of physical changes in Italy. No, whatever science claims to be true, is not true.
The good father identified the source of earthquakes. They are the outcome of anger by the guy up in the sky who is furious, and they are “punishment for gay and civil unions.” I guess the old guy just does not enjoy gays and lesbians getting hitched, and he has decided to hitch his star with a few disturbances that shake up buildings and folks. So, if you do not want any geological disturbances, just outlaw gays and lesbians!
