Quotes of the day: Arland Bruce and Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin

“Michael Sam is someone’s son, someone’s brother and it is not my business nor my right to comment on his sexual orientation. My comment … was inappropriate and disrespectful and I apologize for the lack of discretion.”
– CFL veteran Arland Bruce, apologizing for homophobic comments he made about NFL prospect Michael Sam — as reported by the Globe and Mail.

We are taught to forgive, and forget, yes?

“Anybody who doesn’t show love towards gay and lesbian people is insulting God. They are not just homophobic if they do that – they are actually Godophobic because God loves every one of those people.”
– Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin, speaking to the Irish Independent

Nice, eh? Even if you don’t believe in God, it’s the essential message of brotherly/sisterly love.

Cheers
