Blessed bigotry: Pope Benedict XVI is Anti-Gay Person of the Year

From the Washington Blade


EDITORS’ NOTE:
As 2005 draws to a close, many media outlets will announce their selections for person of the year. In past years, Blade editors have selected a Story of the Year instead.

This year, the Story of the Year was, in our view, the extraordinary efforts of one individual to not only put a halt to the acceptance of gay people legally and within the mainstream culture, but to roll back such acceptance to an earlier, less tolerant and more discriminatory time.
