Pope Attacks Gay Families, Again

January 2, 2008 at 9:09 am 6 comments

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.

    Strong words coming from a man who wears a dress, ornate hats, and Prada shoes.

    Just because he has a shriveled-up, worthless old dingey he can’t use doesn’t mean he has the right to tell us what to do with ours.

    I prefer the sainted words of an old drag-queen friend of mine: “It doesn’t matter who you love, or how you love–only THAT you love.”

    Take that, Ratzo.

    What a bunch of drivel. You may not care what the Pope says, but most people do. Gay marriage is wrong from a number of perspectives. First, it’s wrong because it’s culturally destructive. You can’t attack such fundamental institutions as family and marriage without causing upheaval in society. Much could be said about that, but what would concern most readers of this absurd blog would be the second point. Gay marriage has destroyed much progress made in the gay movement for “gay rights” and gay issues. I don’t happen to endorse specifically gay rights as opposed to rights for anyone else, but any thinking person can see how destructive it has been and how any acceptance of gay people was greatly damaged by that movement.

    Now the gay movement is simply seen as a way of destroying culture, of uprooting the basic understanding of the family, etc etc. That’s not good for the movement at all. The politically naive “leaders” of the gay movement staked it all on gay “marriage,” and they have lost big time, setting back the “movement” many years and maybe irreparably damaging it.

    p.s. for the clueless: attacking the Pope doesn’t help any either.

    James,

    What planet are you living on that you think most people care what the Pops has to say? For the record, the majority of people on Earth are not Catholic. The Catholic Church has been wrong a number of social issues and this just one.

    Your twisted logic about gay people demanding equal treatment under the law undermining the gay rights movement is ridiculous. The point of the LGBT movement is fair and equal treatment under the law including marriage.

    What has been destructive to the progress of our vision of being treated just like anyone else is the constant stream of anti-gay attitudes coming from people like you.

    Your feeble attempt to blame gay people for your homophobia is as transparent as the attempts by the Catholic Church to evade responsibility for the child sex scandals involving priests. That does not mean that I have anything against Catholics. It means that I think that the Church should be held accountable when its words, actions and inaction hurts people.

    We did not attack the Pope. The Pope attacked us through his use of this speech and others to denigrate us and our families. Don’t expect us to take those attacks lying down.

    P.S., James, the Pope attacks me–I attack him. News flash: the Pope is just a man, a deluded man, with entirely too much power. He has no right to tell me how I should live my life or what I should believe–and his followers don’t either. So, begone! You have no power here.
