San Francisco gets sued

The San Francisco Board of Supervisor's resolution describing the moral teachings of the Roman Catholic Church as “insulting to all San Franciscans,” “hateful,” “insulting and callous,” “defamatory,” “absolutely unacceptable,” “insensitive[] and ignoran[t]” has attracted a lawsuit.

I am skeptical about the plaintiffs' chances. An earlier lawsuit brought by evangelical Christians who ran ads stating that homosexuality is a sin that were subsequently condemned by the Board was unsuccessful.

I hate to play the conservative game of "can you imagine if ...", but sometimes it fits. Can you imagine if the Board had condemned Islamic teachings as "insulting, hateful, etc."?

The real ignoramuses would be out in full force.
