Pope Attacks Gay Families, Again
For a man of peace, the Pope sure doesn’t hold his fire when it comes to attacking The Gays. In his first public speech of the new year, which conveniently enough was on World Day of Peace, Pope Benedict XVI called same-sex marriage a threat to world peace.
If the pope were an American, he’d probably be voting for Mike Huckabee who thinks gay marriage is a threat to civilization.
After the Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica, the 80-year-old pope, dressed in ornate white and gold vestment, waved and smiled from his studio window to pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square.
Benedict returned to a theme central to his papacy: the importance of the traditional family based on the marriage between man and woman.
“Mankind is a big family,” he said, noting that peace is inspired by the same values that hold a family together.
Family is the “first and irreplaceable educator of peace,” Benedict said.
The remarks were in line with a strong Vatican campaign under Benedict for the protection of the traditional family and against proposals to extend rights to gay couples or other unions outside traditional marriage.
