Bruni has a rare decent column. It is the issue which I have long found maddening. It's one thing for the Catholic Church to have official stands on things like gay marriage which I might disagree with (hey, I'm not Catholic!), it's quite another that gay issues and to a lesser extent sex more generally have seemingly become the issues for the church, at least where the church intersects with politics.

And it isn't just the church, it's the entire focus of the political religious right. "Values Voters" means no gays and slutshaming. Um, ok, great values.
