Geriatric Virgin To World: God Hates Fags

Pretty brave coming from a man who dresses in robes and wears prada
Quote:
Pope Benedict XVI has said that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour is just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction.

He explained that defending God's creation was not limited to saving the environment, but also about protecting man from self-destruction.
The Pope was delivering his end-of-year address to senior Vatican staff.
His words, later released to the media, emphasised his rejection of gender theory.

Speaking on Monday, Pope Benedict XVI warned that gender theory blurred the distinction between male and female and could thus lead to the "self-destruction" of the human race.

Gender theory explores sexual orientation, the roles assigned by society to individuals according to their gender, and how people perceive their biological identity.

Gay and transsexual groups, particularly in the United States, promote it as a key to understanding and tolerance, but the Pope disagreed.

When the Roman Catholic Church defends God's Creation, "it does not only defend the earth, water and the air... but (it) also protects man from his own destruction," he said.

"Rainforests deserve, yes, our protection, but the human being ... does not deserve it less," the pontiff said.

It is not "out-of-date metaphysics" to "speak of human nature as 'man' or woman'", he told scores of prelates gathered in the Vatican's sumptuous Clementine Hall.

"We need something like human ecology, meant in the right way."
The Catholic Church opposes gay marriage. It teaches that while homosexuality is not sinful, homosexual acts are.

Rev Sharon Ferguson, chief executive of Britain's Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement, described the Pope's remarks as "totally irresponsible and unacceptable".

"When you have religious leaders like that making that sort of statement then followers feel they are justified in behaving in an aggressive and violent way," she said.

The pope uses his traditional end-of-year speech to offer his Christmas greetings and say a few words about what he considers the important issues of the day.

This year, Pope Benedict also deplored the tendency to depict the Catholic church's World Youth Day, which he attended in Sydney earlier this year, as mere spectacle.

He stressed that the event should not be considered a "variant of modern youth culture, as a kind of ecclesiastical rock festival with the Pope as the star," but as the fruition of a "long exterior and interior path".

When this delightful old man came to visit Sydney the state tried to introduce anti-nuisance laws prohibiting some forms of protest (e.g. t-shirts, handing out condoms to WYD people etc.), while the rest of us get silenced we're supposed to embrace reactionary bilge as holy speech.

At least the Vatican is pretty ruthlessly consistent in its application of the "natural law" of gender. No contraception, no in vitro fertilization, (almost) no Church-recognized remarriage, no female clergy, and no abortion, fornication, or sanctioned homosexual sex either.

I love how an organization that mandates CELIBACY thinks it should denounce UNNATURAL sexual acts. Classic.

Unless you're the former mayor of LA and a huge church donor.

Yes, I said "pretty" and "almost" for a reason.

I'm trying to see where the Pope said he hated anybody in the article and can't seem to find it.

Please advise.

teacher says every time someone has gay sex an angel loses his wings.

that there are people out there who still believe that if there are gay people in the world whom are apparently contagious, so that if they end up next to said gay person they may suddenly get a fabulous urge to take it in the pooper would be almost unbelievable, if not for the fact that these same people also believe that jesus kept dinosaurs as a pet.

baffling. live your life the way you want it and let others live the way they want it. if it is, in fact, a sin? great... they'll all burn in hell while you sip your little virgin daiquiri's on a big fluffy fuck cloud. but let your god, whichever one you believe in, decide that. not you

A provocative paraphrase. The Taliban didn't actually tell the Pakistani government to "put bitches in their place" either.

The people that are perpetuating a hateful lie that homosexuality is immoral, and that if someone has gay sex they are doing more harm than burning down a rainforest.

knowing that a line of thought is bat shit bonkers stupid is much different than hating somebody for having that line of thought.

but it is probably best to let those who believe in that bat shit bonkers stupid line of thought to just live their lives, and not be so self rightous to think that i can change them. maybe they're happy with their bat shit bonkers stupid thoughts.

i'll let god decide.
