Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A red herring. Supporting human rights for one group does not excuse hate speech against another group. Supporting human rights is the default position that should be expected of all conduct. The fact that the Catholic Church wants to advertise its commitment to the human rights of the Roma while spreading malicious hate and inciting violence against homosexuals and doctors who provide reproductive care does not make it virtuous. It makes it hypocritical.

I see you have actual access to the Vatican's Top Secret Plan to eliminate all Roma from Western European Civilisation.

...not to mention that the Catholic Church around here is not 100% Roma-friendly...
