Pope Benedict Is Furious You’re ‘Penalizing’ Breeders

The approval of forms of union which pervert the essence and goal of the family ends up penalizing those people who, not without effort, seek to maintain stable emotional ties which are juridically guaranteed and publicly recognized.

—Pope Benedict XVI, speaking to political leaders during his annual address in Rome on Friday, remains unconvinced your same-sex “marriages” (airquotes for Jesus!) are doing anything but hurting heterosexuals [via]

    what a flaming asshole, he’d rather try to make a mess of our politics and private lives than deal with the ongoing Pedophilia issues in his own church

    The old Nazi looks like he’s about to raise the “Heil Hitler” salute. About the last thing the world needs is ethics lectures from the head of this international criminal enterprise.

    Nazi Pope strikes again.

    Ladidah. Don’t listen to old duffers.

    Every thinking person who has considered the question, and every single Judge, has found that allowing one loving couple to marry does not harm any other couple.

    For the leader of the immensely wealthy corporation that is the Catholic “Church” to say otherwise, is just a lie. He clings to prejudice against gay people for one reason — The condemnation that previous popes inflicted upon generations of people, allowed the “Church” to accumulate massive wealth by selling forgiveness. If the church were to admit that it was just profiteering, it would lose all credibility. To continue profiteering, he must continue the lies and prejudices of the past. He knows they are lies, but he cannot say so.

    There is a place in modern life for religion. There is even a place in gay life for religion, and a place in religious life for gays. But that religion needs to be concerned with relationships, understanding, acceptance, truth, and love. And, it must let go of prejudice and condemnation.

    If he thinks it’s difficult for straight couples to maintain their marriages while gay couples are also enjoying marriages… it should follow that religious people are generally being held hostage by the idiocy of the Katholic Khurch… and they kind of are, but too many are simply on-board w/ the prejudice.

    Now now. Given the pope’s age, senility is a more credible explanation for such a silly statement as the one QUEERTY quoted.

  • Ryan

    @ewe: Hah. Don’t insult the female population. The proper way to refer to the pope is simply as “it” or “gollum’s slower and homelier older brother”.

  • Atheism like homophobia is a prejudice

    The anti-Christian bigotry on this site is sickening! I don’t know why I bother coming here anymore!

  • Soupy

    You could always consult with your other identity on here Cassandra for the answer to your question.

    @Atheism like homophobia is a prejudice

    and what pray tell us is the correct response to the poop’s homophobic bigotry?

    “Oh, what a lovely, but misguided man.”??

  • justiceontherocks

    @Soupy – did you notice – there isn’t one anti-Christian word in any of the posts here. Anti-Catholic yes, but not anti-Christian.

    You would think a real christian would be even more offended by the pope than those of us who just don’t care one way or the other.

    The Romans shouldn’t be running schools.

    @justiceontherocks: If the Ancient Romans were running schools they would be a lot more! “Every body line up for orgy class”

  • Queer Supremacist

    @Atheism like homophobia is a prejudice: I don’t know why I bother coming here anymore! Then make like a tree and fuck off.

    And listen beeyotch, “prejudice” is making a judgement without having all the facts at hand. We have plenty of facts about this cult. None of them good. All of them justify our contempt for everything they believe, everything they do, and everything they are.

    I say shove ’em into gas chambers. Do to them what their buddy Hitler did to innocent people.

  • Roger Rabbit

    Ok, I just object to the title of:

    Atheism like homophobia is a prejudice

    WTF?? Atheism is JUST as much of a cult as any religion!!!! NO prejudice is applicable here, just self-hatred like any other religion!!!

    Actually, I fully respect all people’s belief systems, whether they make any sense or not.

    And if you don’t know why you bother coming here anymore??

    @Atheism like homophobia is a prejudice: You come to this site to annoy everybody with your obsessive rants re: Homophobia = Atheists. I no sooner wipe the ickie from my hands before you pop into another thread with the same old dirt. You ARE tedious.
