Whoa! Rhode Island Catholic Biship, a Democrat for over 40 years, officially switches to Republican

From Eric Dondero: 

Looks like continued fall-out from last year's Democrat National Convention when the delegates booed God. 

National Review reports, "Rhode Island Bishop Switches Voter Registration from Dem to GOP":
 I just said I can’t be associated structurally with that group, in terms of abortion and NARAL and Planned Parenthood and [the] same-sex-marriage agenda and cultural destruction I saw going on,” Bishop Thomas Tobin said at a state Young Republicans meeting on Tuesday night. “I just couldn’t do it anymore.”
Tobin added that his public shift should not be viewed as the Church’s endorsement of either political party. 
The bishop also said he was ”profoundly disappointed” in the state’s Catholic politicians who “abandoned ship” on the issue of same-sex marriage when Rhode Island legalized it earlier this year.
Note - We dissent a bit from the Bishop on gay marriage: We're perfectly fine with it, so long as it's not government-promoted and subsidized. But we're still, very happy to have him on board with the Grand Old Party.

Is there a Rhode Island Republican Party???? Wikipedia says there are only six Repubicans in the 75 member lower house.

The party might as well abolish itself and let some new party have at it.

Romney won 35% in Rhode Island -- no worse than the Democrats got in places like Idaho, West Virginia, and Arkansas.

About fucking time. Actually, too damn late. Idiot. He's mine, I'll say as I please. Then again, I do anyway.

What the fuck are you gibbering about you fool?

Wow, a man of the cloth jumping parties because his nose got out of joint over individuals being able to exercise their civil liberties.

What a surprise. The Bishop will fit in well with the GOP. Today's Grand Old Poop.

Sad what the Grand Old Party has morphed into since the fundies, the neo cons, the MIC hawks, crony capitalists, and corportists grabbed the reins of party power.

So Les, getting on the government dole through a legal gay partnership is now a "civil liberty"?

How about my civil liberties to keep my own money and not subsidize others sexual lifestyles?

You are freaky sexually? Fine. None of my fuckin' business. Just DON'T STEAL MY FUCKING MONEY TO FUND YOU AND YOUR PARTNER(S)

"Gay Marriage" is a ruse. It's 99% about mooching off the taxpayers through federal benefits, and 1% about sexual liberties.

You are a true southern dickhead. And a FUCKIMG IGNORANT one at that.

Perhaps YOU are freaky sexually. Heard a lot about those inbred southern hillbillies.

Go Fuck yourself dude.

Damn you are ignorant. Is it true you are a Grand Wizard of the KKK? Somebody told me you were but I didn't believe them.

Once the Church of Rome decides to get serious about child rape by its members then I'll give a fuck what one of its flunkies has to say about anything.
