The Popes Agree To Hate Your Marriage

The great thing about having a pope and a pope emeritus is that the Vatican can double the hatred. In an unprecedented joint document —unprecendented because the predecessor is usually dead — Pope Francis and the retired Pope Benedict XVI have co-written a religious text that insists marriage “should be a stable union of man and woman.”

Benedict had almost finished penning the 82-page poem to homophobia before stepping down from office. His inability to meet a deadline meant that Pope Francis could join in the celebration of anything that is not gay.

“This union is born of their love, as a sign and presence of God’s own love, and of the acknowledgment and acceptance of the goodness of sexual differentiation,” reads the text.

Just to add a little more spice to the antigay stew, the Vatican is moving closer to declaring John Paul II a saint. The Church has attributed a second miracle to him, a key step in the move toward sainthood. This is the same John Paul II who wondered if gay rights “is not perhaps part of a new ideology of evil, perhaps more insidious and hidden, which attempts to pit human rights against the family and against man.” Which gives you some sense of what the Vatican considers to be holy.

    @Cam: There’s already a group who’ve promised to leak a full digital rip of the movie before release.

    It will be THE most widely distributed pre-release of a digital rip ever if what’s been buzzing about is true.

    Me, I won’t watch it, nor will I download it *WINK WINK* and ensure it’s uploaded. From what I’ve read it should be in the millions of downloads.

    Also on topic, when are we just going to refer to these vermin as paedophile priests, considering they’re both paedophiles and in the case of Nazipope protecting thousands of paedophiles too.

    These men have sex with children and see nothing wrong with it. In fact, they truly believe that they have a right to do it.
    If you’re not under their indoctrination, you see that the church has NOTHING to do with faith or religion, or helping the poor and unfortunate.
    All they care about it money and power. Their charities – publicly funded indoctrination centers – “swear your fealty or starve you dirty poor people!”
    The truth is, the whole myth of the catholic church is the modern day “Big Lie”.

    At the link below is the full text of the “Reichskonkordat,” the political treaty between the Vatican and Adolf Hitler. At the time this treaty was signed, the anti-Jewish racial laws were already in force in Nazi Germany:
    Here is an example of what is in the treaty:
    Article 3
    In order to foster good relations between the Holy See and the German Reich, an apostolic nuncio will reside in the capital of the German Reich and an ambassador of the German Reich at the Holy See.

    Our relationships are rooted in love between consenting adults. These men sexually abuse vulnerable children and cover up for the perverts, by moving sexual predators from diocese to diocese. Vestments and collars are equated with perversion and sexual exploitation of children. Dirty, vile “men of the cloth” have little moral authority, so the Catholic Church is relegated to playing, “name that Saint” games to perk up interest. Scandals are tedious, so let’s rack up another Saint Red Herring to divert the flock’s interest for a week. Idols are so easy.
