Yes you read right, it’s not war, not diseases, not pollution, not hunger but gay marriage that is a threat to humanity. In a speech pulled right of the Pope Speech book this past January 9th Ratzinger repeated the usual hate and ignorance saying that:
“The family, based on the marriage of a man and a woman … is not a simple social convention, but rather the fundamental cell of every society,…”
Clearly his holiness was never a sociology major but the 89 year old virgin male must be a medical professional who understands women’s health issues intimately or he wouldn’t say that humanity is compromised of laws that:
“not only permit but at times even promote abortion for reasons of convenience or for questionable medical motives,”
Nothing unusual here but he did take the Church’s attack on gay men and women to a whole new level calling gay marriage a threat to “the fundamental cell of every society”. I know I have said it before but if I didn’t know better I would swear the Catholic Church is trying to see how far it can go before people leave and/or reject the church in such large numbers they are forced to change their positions or die. I would have been happy with the former at one point but now I can only see more hope for humanity in the Roman Catholic Church declaring bankruptcy and closing its doors for good.
