Pope Benedict Criticizes Gay Behavior

Monday, December 22, 2008

Do Rick Warren and Barack Obama agree with Pope Benedict? Just wondering.

Pope Benedict said Monday that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behavior was just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction.

The Church “should also protect man from the destruction of himself. A sort of ecology of man is needed. The tropical forests do deserve our protection. But man, as a creature, does not deserve any less.” the pontiff said in a holiday address to the Curia, the Vatican’s central administration.

The pope said humanity needed to “listen to the language of creation” to understand the intended roles of man and woman. He compared behavior beyond traditional heterosexual relations as “a destruction of God’s work.”

    A valid question. If Obama is hanging around with Rick Warren, you’re left to wonder if Obama agrees with the Catholic Church and its institutionalized homophobia. As long as Obama invites people like Rick Warren to the table, people will wonder.

    This Prada-wearing devil needs to STFU.

    His boys haven’t exactly behaved with a nod to the highest moral standards one might expect.

    Especially, when vulnerable boys are left alone with the priests.

    Well, one thing we can always count on the week before Christmas is some vile, hateful edict or remark from the Vatican.

    I call it, Merry Christmas from the Pope.

    Isn’t it amazing? In less than a week, Barack Obama and Rick Warren’s names have been linked like Ike and Tina, or Sonny and Cher. I always thought our president-elect had a better PR sense. Boy, was I wrong!

  5. Bruce says:

    Yes, the Catholics should be talking about others’ “morality.”

    Over the centuries, exactly how many children did the priests rape? And how many times did they cover it up? It would be impossible to keep track.

    Perhaps they will have credibility when they clean-up their sexual deviant acts and take some responsibility and accountability for their actions. Until then, they make Jesus puke.

    I think straight people are doing a spectacular job of destroying marriage themselves, thank you very much. Gay people are not responsible for the divorce rate amongst those that CAN legally marry.
    It’s always easier to blame the woes of all mankind on gay people, rather than for heterosexuals to take personal responsibility for screwing up their own lives.

    I can’t stand the current Pope.

    He seems particularly mean spirited and when I see a close up picture of him, he has dead eyes. Very creepy.

    Homos are perverts

    Ratzinger is so full of shit. If not for gay priests and lesbian nuns, his church would have a major labor shortage.
