    New Pope condems gays

    Yup, just what the Catholic world needed...

    Back to the future

    Let me quote George Carlin here, it just seems appropriate

    Religion - easily - has the best bull$hit story of all time. Think about it. Religion has convinced people that there's an invisible man...living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn't want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

    A man who wears a dress everyday, and gets on his knees to be fed a cracker, making fun of ****sexuals? Wow, what a surprise

    This pope used to be the "bad guy" and the "enforcer", he's Arnold of the Church, no surprise here

    Next he'll denounce birth control and abortion

    What would Jesus do?

    I am kind of lost in the whole "the church is against gay marriage" thing. I mean it sounds as if being gay is the new leprosy in the Church's eye. But then didn't Jesus ,the Grand teacher of all the Christian disciples who start the Church in the first place, walked, aided and healed lepers and all? So how is it okay today in attempt to justify the condemnation and abandon of this "new leprosy" in the Church's opinion. Aren't they saying that they are free to not walk the same path of their founder of the faith? That's just something serious wrong with the whole religious thing.

    I am against marriage whether it is straight or gay anyway. I don't think one needs a piece of paper to say "I love you" and then another to say "I hate your guts". It's just dump and silly. BTW, I couldn't figure out how sex is dirty but it gives birth to the "holy" priests but Church politic is clean but it won't allow the holy priests to procreate which is consider secrat duty of the idea of family in the new Pope's preaching (that's one of the reason why he's against gay marriage).

    It's a sad day for any religion when they take a step back. With all the child molestation publicity, is this the way to go? Actually, for any neo-conservatist, it probably is...

    Don't they realize, though, that people are getting smarter and the appeal of the "invisible man" is starting to wear thin? Where will the money come from then?

    Luckily here religion plays no role in anything. It's ancient history. Yet, we are not in decadence...

    Anywho, waiting for Judge Pen to chime in...

    funny the bible says "judge not others lest yee be judged."

    Most catholics have no idea what the bible says. catholics some say have ruined christianity. hence all the born agains and others sects that have been popping up over the years as people cannot stand the garbage fed to them from the vatican.

    Worlds third largest bank. They have lots of clout and have never earned a penny of it.

    Thieves and hypocrites some say. I say ignore them as they are nothing. Most people want to believe in something as it takes the responsibility out of their hands. they can blame anything and everything on the will of god or some such nonsense.

    Oh well....

    "Matrimony and the family are not, in reality, a casual sociological construction or the fruit of specific historic and economic situations," he said.
    I mostly agree with the Pope.

    I don't see where he condemned gays. He condemned gay marriages. And good on him, too. I'm opposed to them as marriages as a default position.

    IRT: mantis108-
    I mean it sounds as if being gay is the new leprosy in the Church's eye.
    Being gay is not. Gay sex, otoh, is a sin. Its not a forever-****ing sort of thing, though.

    Seculars have the view that being gay is a permanent, inborn thing [not arguing that] and that if one is, the of course one will go out & have gay sex [not necessarily so. There's straights who are celibate by inclination, just as there are gays who are. But at this point we get into the "is it an act or a gender?" thing].

    To the church, its a sin. All of us are sinners, and all of us have our own peculiar temptations, and thats what Confession is for - to gain forgiveness. My point is- no, it isn't easy being a gay catholic, but neither is it to be a straight catholic.

    Last- all of you who're moaning- are you catholics? Why does what he says matter to you?
