A White House online petition seeks to have the Roman Catholic Church classified as a hate group, according to WhiteHouse.gov . Thousands of people have signed the petition, which partially states, "Using hateful language and discriminatory remarks, the Pope painted a portrait in which gay people are second-class global citizens." Twenty-five thousand signatures are needed by Jan. 24 for the White House to file an official response.
