Pope says future of mankind
at stake over gay marriage

Agence France-Presse, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/21/2012 3:22:01 PM

Pope Benedict XVI has weighed in on a heated debate over gay marriage, criticising new concepts of the traditional family and warning that mankind itself was at stake. "In the fight for the family, the very notion of being – of what being human really means – is being called into question," the Pope said in Italian during an end-of-year speech. "The question of the family ... is the question of what it means to be a man, and what it is necessary to do to be true men," he said.

This from a man who heads an organization whose clergy sexually molested and abused children for decades. Who heads the same organization which moved these sexual predators from parish to parish so they could continue to prey upon children again and again. This man and his organization have lost the right to declare they have any moral leadership ever again.

This non-Catholic is grateful to the Pope for speaking out in such strong terms. Let´s hope the Catholic Church always stands firm on this.

#1 your thoughts are understandable. But I have to suggest that the mistakes you cite are part and parcel of a broad from-the-ground-up horror in the human. Definitely not doxology. And much worse elsewhere. (You don´t want to be a young boy in Afghanistan with the taliban visiting your town.)

Ironic #1, since many of the people who helped shield/move/hide the perpetrators in the Church are themselves rather liberal in their approach to Church teaching and highly likely to be the very ones supporting gay "rights" and marriage and thus opposing the Pope´s stance.

It´s documented that the Pope protected the abusers as well.

He´s reaping what he sowed with the loss of moral authority.

Actually same sex perversion is an effective population control measure so the leftist should repress the practice. Not only does that perverse union not produce offspring it promotes fatal diseases.
The dimfecals should give that some thought since it (dimfecal ideology or lack thereof) will soon run out of wackos to steal votes.
Oh no. We forgot the efficient overbreeders from washington and mexifornia.
What a relief. We can still have our dimfecals.

Oh, good, the Catholic bashers are back! Yes the abuse by the Priests were wrong, but Catholic Clergy are by no means the only ones guilty of this sin. Elmer Gantry was no Catholic. Jimmy Swaggart solicited whores on the streets. There is an unfortunate tradition that is decades and decades old of clergy of all stripes taking advantage of their charges. But they are a minuscule fraction. Most clergy, Catholic or not, do enormous amounts of good. It is certainly true that thousands and thousands of Catholic Priests do good and are loved by their parishioners. And the Catholic Church does enormous good throughout the world. You just happen to hate Catholics. Just say that and sign off. No need for a phony justification for your hate.

The socialists have never believed in the family, individuals, or freedom. Socialists believe only in the state (they assume that will be them), coercion and compulsion.

Gay marriage is evil.

It doesn´t matter if every person on Earth voted in favor of gay marriage it would still be evil.

We will reap the results of that evil.

Catholic-bashing isn´t going to make the truth go away. And #1 that is total distortion. Not going to bother with it but your post is slanderous. Anyway, what the Holy Father said is true. No one´s going to like this, but - when oral contraceptives came out the Church said artificial contraception would lead to abortion and people said How Ridiculous. Then the Church said abortion would lead to euthanasia and people said, How Ridiculous. Then the Church said that euthanasia would bring down civilization. How Ridiculous. ?They know what human beings are, and how the culture is built. It´s not a good idea to go around knocking down pillars that you don´t see the need for in a building you don´t understand. Things aren´t immortal just because you take them for granted. Eventually it all goes down.

If gay marriage is a threat to mankind, the underlying assumption is that the majority of men would find marriage to a man more attractive than marriage to a woman. I use men here as an example because the Vatican emphasizes the role of men more than it does the role of women in procreation.

It´s an interesting assumption. Inherent within it is the notion that the majority of men are capable of relations with both genders. The Vatican´s line of thinking is therefore in tune with Kinsey´s research findings.

#14 says #1 is distorting the truth? #14, there are none so blind as those who will not see. He´s not the Holy Father. He´s an old man in a dress who heads a church that, for decades, covered up for pedophiles. Argue with that. Merry Christmas.

# 14 How is anything I said slanderous when it has been proven to be true with the trials and convictions of some of the priest who abused and sexually molested children. Also, the catholic church in the US has paid out 2 billions dollars so far to abuse victims in the US and now a bishop has been convicted in Federal court and received a prison sentence for aiding and abetting priests who molested and abused children in his diocese. The catholic church in Ireland has also been investigated for the same molestations and abuse of children as their counterparts in the US.

Ans I´ll say it again this religion and this pope have no moral authority left.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Atlanta Braves legend Hank Aaron is reportedly "upset" and "bitter" because he feels that readers -- not the reporter who wrote the story -- took his comments that implied those who opposed President Barack Obama´s policies now wear "neckties and starched shirts" instead of KKK hoods out of context. And the reporter who wrote the story is claiming Aaron should not have to apologize for something he never said because Aaron was talking about CEOs, American society, and corporate America and not referring to a political party. Last week, in a story that appeared the day before Aaron was honored

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
