  • It's as possible as gay marriage

San Francisco's favorite sinner, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, apparently has just as much to learn about gay marriage as he does about the drinking and driving laws.

The man of God reportedly told an English Catholic newspaper that legalizing same-sex marriage was sorta like legalizing male-breastfeeding.

According to the newspaper:

Archbishop Cordileone cautions against over-using the term "gay marriage", advising that it should be used "only sparingly" because it is a natural impossibility and if we keep talking about gay marriage we might fool ourselves into thinking it is an authentic reality, which only needs government approval to make it legitimate. He compares it with another impossibility: "Legislating for the right for people of the same sex to marry is like legalising male breastfeeding."

Don't forget this is the same man who was busted last summer driving his mother and some friends home after an evening of dinner and drinks. Cordileone reached a sobriety checkpoint near San Diego State University just after midnight where he was arrested on suspicion of DUI.

After spending the night in jail, he apologized to his friends and family, and began praying that God "in his inscrutable wisdom, will bring some good out of this."

Oh, by the way:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
