Homophobia Gone Mental: And The Gays DON’T Have It.

gaymarriageMore depressing news for the end of the year – it’s more pointy-hatted nonsense:

Pope Benedict signals inter-faith alliance against legalizing gay marriage

The pope’s latest denunciation of gay marriage came in a Christmas address to Vatican officials in which he blended religion, philosophy, anthropology and sociology to illustrate the position of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Vatican has gone on the offensive in response to gains for gay marriage in the United States and Europe, using every possible opportunity to denounce it through papal speeches or editorials in its newspaper or on its radio station.

Throwing the full weight of his office behind a study by France’s chief rabbi on the effects the legalization of gay marriage would have on children and society, he said:

“There is no denying the crisis that threatens it (the family) to its foundations – especially in the Western world.”

The family had to be protected because it was “the authentic setting in which to hand on the blueprint of human existence”, he added.

This is typical Catholic absurdity at its stupidest – note that it was ‘a’ study, not extensive studies, one single study. And boom! It’s a rush off to judgment.

And this is exactly why we need to point and laugh and denounce and shout this nonsense down: there’s no reasoning with the irrational. Courtesy only leads these idiots to think they have a valid point, even when the preponderance of evidence proves otherwise.

Denying a specific subset of the population the right that everyone else has is discrimination: as such, that is distinctly un-American. Marriage is a civil right – saying that two adults can’t do it because somebody’s imaginary friend prohibits it is forcing religious belief on others – a clear violation of SOCAS.

It’s too bad that gay couples in America can’t file a class-action suit against that pointy-hatted assclown in the Vatican. Or any of the other flatline idiots who try to foist their madness onto the rest of us.

Ex cathedra my homesick ass.

Till the next post, then.

    The Church never ceases top remind us how irrelevant and immoral it is

  2. Zarathustra says:

    Hey, Popey, how about an interfaith Alliance against PEDOPHILE Priests…………… You SCUM BAG

  3. Zarathustra says:

    Pope Bene-DICK is about as useful to the Human Race as Tits are on a Bull…. He aught to either die already, or just STFU!!!!!!

  4. Brooklyn Boy says:

    My late father would describe Pope Ratzi as a ‘slinky’ – devoid of any value but lots of fun to push down a flight of stairs.

    See, I take the opposite tack on the whole marriage-equality thing. I think marriage as a legal contract should be abolished! Noone has the “right” to own another person, and isn’t that what marriage actually is? In any other situation the legal obligations dictated by marriage are completely ludicrous. Can you imagine Tom Brady signing on with the Patriots if the contract included the following language: ” the contract will exist in perpetuity until either the player or the franchise expires, at which time the surviving party shall be free of their obligations. Should either party desire to terminate the union before death, then the other party shall be entitled to at least half of all earnings amassed by the terminating party during the course of the contract”.? Only a fool would sign such a contract. It’s time to send Marriage onto the garbage heap of History. Freedom for all!

  6. more religious nonsense!

    More Catholic fuckstickery, especially ironic in the light of all those pedophile bum-punchers called “priests”. Oh, and don’t forget the shit spewed out of the particularly puckered anus-like vocal orifice of a priest in Italy, who went on air to announce that women bring rape and domestic violence upon themselves by wearing revealing clothing and not serving hot, home-cooked meals in a timely manner to their menfolk.

    OH – and pronouncements on sex and marriage are especially authoritative coming from dress-and-dog-collar-wearing unmarried men who claim to be celibate….NOT! My irony meter pops its top every time I hear this unadulterated bullshit.

    Does the catholic church inc. pay this pope ratzilla person, or feed it tranquilizing drugs and get it to dress up in funny hats, clothes and shoes? They should put a muzzle on it and tell it to keep quiet. They can feed it wine and crackers on Sunday if they must.

  9. DAW says:

    But the pope speaks for God.
    Dare you go against the will of God?

    Dare you go against the will of God?

    Who? I don’t know this ‘god’ fella. Mind you, I’ve heard stories, but I don’t believe any of them.
