Here is the forty-first article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Austin Ruse from the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute. He is so honored for blaming an individual choice on a whole class of educators, and then suggesting to deal with those people the way only Republican Supply-side Jesus would: killing them.

"human-hating people that run modern universities, who should all be taken out and shot." Obviously the man never listens to himself otherwise he would not have gotten these words into one sentence. So perhaps it is time to confront Ruse with his own words for once, preferably before a court where he is charged with hate speech and enticing to use violence.
Normally, in cases like his, I'd say, just ignore those fools, who listens to them anyway? But this fool apparently IS listened to and even the most absurd things that he spews are taken so serious that it costs a very much needed ratification of a bill the necessary votes. Therefore this man must be shown for the menace he is.

I think Pope Francis has already made it clear what he thinks when he told people to shut up already about sex (he specified abortion and gay rights I believe, but he was clearly referring to the misconception that anything to do with sex is more sinful than anything not sex related) and start talking about the poor and compassion.
Groups like this - and unfortunately he is not alone - give the Catholic church a bad name (something with which it needs no help, thank you very much). So I feel compelled to mention Catholics United as a counterweight, along with Faithful America, Sojourners, and Interfaith Alliance. It's easy to forget that there are people in groups who do understand Christianity and are trying to live it.

"...hard left, HUMAN HATING PEOPLE..." It is amazing that these good Bible thumping people can not see that they refer to themselves, in their rhetorical diarrhea!
The scariest piece within this story, for me, is how the ruse he used impacted the U.N. related vote, indicating the stupidity .within the system.

I wonder how Pope Francis feels about this idiot and his theology of hate? I think he would like to excommunicate him right after suing him to cease using the word "Catholic" in the name of his organisation which has nothing to do with human rights. I know what Jesus would do . . . he'd clear the temple again, and first out the door would be this pariah!
Amazing how there are so many of these "Christians" that know nothing of the teachings of Jesus, only the teachings of greed and hate.

I came back because I just received an email from Faithful America, which has started a petition, not to Mr. Ruse, but to Monsignor Anthony Frontiero, who sits on the group board. "Monsignor Frontiero's involvement is helping this hate group masquerade as a legitimately Catholic organization — and undermining Pope Francis' efforts to focus the Church on Christ's radical message of love." Therefore, the petition requests Monsignor Frontiero to resign immediately from the board. Here's the petition link.
