cowpokes: take two

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Dec 17, 2005

So the Bishops of the United States, through their office, have rendered their opinion on the newest gay pic about your everyday 1960s cowboys Ennis and Jack, from Brokeback Mountain:

The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L (limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling) .

Oops! Scratch that.

The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive.

And by the way:

While the actions taken by Ennis and Jack cannot be endorsed, the universal themes of love and loss ring true.

Here's a question. Which bishops saw two men engaging in homosexual behavior and concluded that its universal themes of love ring true, while the behavior was, if you insist, morally offensive?

Just curious.
