Im Gandalf and Magneto, Get Over It

Although it is apparently a spoof made with Photoshop, I enjoyed this image of Sir Ian McKellan, who marched in London to protest the Pope. Joining a crowd of thousands, the caption on the actor’s shirt actually read: “Some people are gay, get over it.” Of course, the really amazing spectacle has got to be the tens of thousands — including victims of molestation by priests — who thronged to be near the creepy patriarch. What were they thinking? Are they satisfied with an apology? At a minimum it is necessary to open the secret files to independent scrutiny, as one molestation victim said. But millions of people surrounding the Vatican with torches and pitchforks would be more like it!
