Hundreds of Spain’s Gays Gather At Sagrada Familia To Hear Pope Call Them Disgusting

Sure, there were plenty of homosexuals kissing outside the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, but a little kiss-in didn’t stop Pope Benedict XVI from launching an assault on Spain’s same-sex marriage laws.

“God is a God of peace not of violence,” the pope told his audience of thousands from the never-going-to-be-finished church, which the pope consecrated as a basilica. Outside, 200 gays were snogging while holding signs reading things like, “Homophobia. Hypocrisy. Corruption. Confessional state. Paedophilia. Vatican bank. NO THANK YOU.”

The trip was a chance for the pope to denounce secularism, which apparently is ALL THE RAGE in Spain. And for the second time in a week, he took a jab at you people: “The generous and indissoluble love of a man and a woman is the effective context and foundation of human life in its gestation, birth, growth and natural end.”

    Does God speak german, italian or english to this devil? I would like to know.

    I wonder what the Pope’s boyfriend has to say about this?

    It’s just more hate about sexual orientation out of the mouth of a dysfunctional virgin.

    I was there….And the turnout for the Pope was surprisingly small.. and the publicity generated by the Queer Flashmob Kiss In, within Spain and worldwide, has highlighted that this pedophile supporter was not welcome…

    Spain had the right idea in the 30’s.

    The Pope popped a bone when he passed the kiss-in. He was probably flesh jacking himself under his dress.

  • The Devil Wears Prada, and his name is Benedict XVI

    I’m from a very Irish Catholic family, and even my parents are pissed about the money spent by the Catholic Church to prevent same-sex CIVIL marriage. Their priorities are f*ed up when they waste money on this and not spend it on the needy, homeless and hungry. There are children going to bed tonight with hunger pains, yet they’d rather waste money on this bull crap.

    So, Benedict XVI, remind me again what religion has to do with same-sex CIVIL marriage? Oh, that’s right. NOTHING.

    no way 250.000 came to see him! barcelona’s streets were desert!!

    actually there were more policemen (and queers) than catholics, except at the very moment of the mess. the same thing happened in Santiago, were the government wasted 3 millions of euros saying they would make a lot of benefits, and nobody came…

    the real shame is that public money coming from our taxes was used to pay for his visit! isn’t the church rich enough to pay for a fucking plain ticket for his head of state??

    the good part? the president of the government hardly showed up (he came 10 min before the pope had to take his plain, said hi and left).
    if the pope is right, and the battle between faith and reason is to take place in Spain, well, he just got a first taste of what is to come!

    Personally I object to the confinement of all anti-Popery protests being confined to gays and lesbians, aids workers, etc.. The gender protest is fair enough but it cannot be substituted for the Pope’s attack on those who resisted Franco, Mussolini and Hitler — all supported by the Papacy throughout WW11. Even before the Franco regime, the Mexicans were killing the jesuits because they tried to destroy the good government of Mexico, especially when the Mexican Government brough in a model constitution to limit the Roman Imperialist Chruch in areas of education and public affairs.

    The Christeros War may have begun WW11, and the ratlines set up after the war by the RC Church points to their implicit and explicit provocations during the 30s and 40s. It is lamentable to see how covertly that was carried into the aggressions in Korea and Vietnam and more recently, under Tony Blair, Bush and Benedict XVI, in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    For the pope to say that secularism is aggressive is really to say that there willwalways be people who can and will think outside the religious frame, and where necessary, in the interests of freedom, will resist a tyrant, Roman or other.

    Moreover, with the publicaiton and dissemination of Francesco Carotta’s disproof of Roman claims to any Godhead (9War Jesus Caesar?) and Joseph Atill’s rather convincing tale of Titus Caesar’s concoction of Benedict XVI’s Bible, the real fascist m and pretentious nature of the Papacy is in evidence.

    The gender protest may support the intellectual protest, but it should not be allowed to supercede it, however much the media and the Papacy want to preseent
    papal antagonisms in such a narrow light.

    Benedict XVI is fomenting antagonisms in Europe while the Black Pope is consolidating Christianity in Indian-America with or without Obama’s support.
    It is apparent that the Papacy is planning a confrontation with forces like Islam in order to bring the weaker-minded christians back to his dwindling fold: just like the middle ages really!

    Therefore, long live the memory of Saladin, Granada, and Southern Spain!

    Latin obviously. All the popes are supposed to know it so using Latin avoids the need to figure out who will be pope when the divine message finally arrives. The empirical evidence is that God (if He exists) must be very far away – at least several light years and maybe a lot more – because this “omnipotent being” seems to have trouble shooting straight. The divine smites always seem to miss their intended targets, so if we assume that God, being omnipotent, must be able to aim the smites extremely accurately, the best explanation for all the misses is extreme distance.
