Notre Dame advocates anti-gay violence in student newspaper. In a deplorable example of catholic insensitivity and open homophobia the Notre Dame student newspaper The Observer published a reprehensible cartoon endorsing anti-gay violence.The cartoon entitled &#8220;The Mobile Party,&#8221; was drawn by three Notre Dame students. One character, who appears to be a hacksaw, asks the other character: &#8220;What is the easiest way to turn a fruit into a vegetable?&#8221;"I don&#8217;t know," replies the other."A baseball bat," says the saw."Fruit" is used as a derogatory term to describe a homosexual. "Vegetable" is used as slang for someone in a coma.  The joke: beat a gay person with a baseball bat and put them in a coma.  Very funny.Hate rolls down hill. What does one expect from an institution and a religion that is led by a former Nazi, and the architect behind the massive cover up of the sexual abuse of children by the Catholic clergy?When the Pope claims homosexuality is a threat to civilization, he implicitly sanctions both jokes about hate crimes as well as the crimes themselves. By claiming gays are an &#8216;attack on creation&#8217;, as well as his December, 2008 statement that the world needs to be protected against gays and transsexuals, the Pope might as well put a target on the back of every member of the LGBT community.The irony is that the Pope, like the church itself, is without moral credibility. The fact that such a cartoon was published in the Notre Dame school paper simply reinforces that notion.Since publication of the offensive cartoon, and the mini-media storm that ensued, the paper has issued an apology and a retraction. The episode is but another sordid reminder of the hatred and bigotry religion so often promotes.

Notre Dame advocates anti-gay violence in student newspaper. In a deplorable example of catholic insensitivity and open homophobia the Notre Dame student newspaper The Observer published a reprehensible cartoon endorsing anti-gay violence.

The cartoon entitled “The Mobile Party,” was drawn by three Notre Dame students. One character, who appears to be a hacksaw, asks the other character: “What is the easiest way to turn a fruit into a vegetable?”

"I don’t know," replies the other.

"A baseball bat," says the saw.

"Fruit" is used as a derogatory term to describe a homosexual. "Vegetable" is used as slang for someone in a coma.  The joke: beat a gay person with a baseball bat and put them in a coma.  Very funny.

Hate rolls down hill. What does one expect from an institution and a religion that is led by a former Nazi, and the architect behind the massive cover up of the sexual abuse of children by the Catholic clergy?

When the Pope claims homosexuality is a threat to civilization, he implicitly sanctions both jokes about hate crimes as well as the crimes themselves. By claiming gays are an ‘attack on creation’, as well as his December, 2008 statement that the world needs to be protected against gays and transsexuals, the Pope might as well put a target on the back of every member of the LGBT community.

The irony is that the Pope, like the church itself, is without moral credibility. The fact that such a cartoon was published in the Notre Dame school paper simply reinforces that notion.
