Pope Benedict XVI and his Catholic Church aren’t down with the gays. In fact, they think we queers are going straight down to hell. They’ve made this quite clear.
If it’s so clear to them, why does it make our head hurt so much?
The anti-gay stances has led many a homo to label Catholic officials “homophobes”. The official Catholics of Catholic.com, who think they have an answer for everything, dismiss this charge thus:
Those opposed to homosexual behavior are often charged with “homophobia”–that they hold the position they do because they are “afraid” of homosexuals. Sometimes the charge is even made that these same people are perhaps homosexuals themselves and are overcompensating to hide this fact, even from themselves, by condemning other homosexuals.
Both of these arguments attempt to stop rational discussion of an issue by shifting the focus to one of the participants. In doing so, they dismiss another person’s arguments based on some real or supposed attribute of the person.
Of course, this can be a bit confusing, since Catholics suppose a lot of things about gay people, ie: they’re going against God’s supposed word. In order to clarify, the editors offer this explanation of what makes a faggot so damn sinful:
Homosexual desires, however, are not in themselves sinful. People are subject to a wide variety of sinful desires over which they have little direct control, but these do not become sinful until a person acts upon them, either by acting out the desire or by encouraging the desire and deliberately engaging in fantasies about acting it out. People tempted by homosexual desires, like people tempted by improper heterosexual desires, are not sinning until they act upon those desires in some manner.
So, these Catholics think it’s the homo sex that’s sinful, thus shifting the focus to the participants’ actions. Isn’t that what they admonish “homophobe” slinging gays of doing?
Fuck a savior, these fools need a headshrinker!
