    As a nominal catholic (notice the small "c" lol) I find this to be one of the last straws. Ugh.

    I heard on the radio that the Pope was saying that if everyone were gay... it would be the end of humankind. Let's for a moment ignore that lesbians can have children, forget about artificial insemination and never mind that we suffer more from overpopulation. Let's focus only on the Pope's logic:

    If everyone were gay, humanity would end, ergo everyone should be straight.

    Let's apply this elsewhere:

    If everyone were male, humanity would end, ergo everyone should be female!

    And yet:

    If everyone were female, humanity would end, ergo everyone should be male.

    (Isn't this the point where the computer in the sci-fi movie blows up?)

    Maybe, just maybe, everyone should just be themselves.

    yeah...i was talking about that with some friends here. it seems that the theoretical limits are non-existent when discussing how everyone could turn gay, (and thus bring about the destruction of mankind) but the theoretical limits of loving one another are preeetty much ruled out from the get-go.icon_neutral.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    all the problems in world, the starving, the maimed and tortured, the dictatorships and the persecuted and he chooses to go on about homosexuality. what is it with religious nuts? they are completely and utterly obsessed with us.

    just imagine the good this man could do if he chose to say something positive and constructive for humanity?

    what a miserable, small minded little man!

    What a SHOCK! I don't even get angry about this kind of bigotry. He's intitled to his opinion no matter how wrong it is. Oh well.

    Lack of birth control is far more likely to wipe out a civilization than same-sex attractions. The Pope should read "Collapse" by Jared Diamond sometime. He might find it very enlightening.

    caesarea4, this is Catholicism! You're not allowed to bring logic into this!

    Go to confession, pray with your rosary, and repent! icon_biggrin.gif

    Fucking buffoon doesn't realize that if everyone became a catholic priest or nun, that would be the end of humanity as well as the anusses of young boys. I pray the pope dies a horrible, long and painful death.

    Ah yes, with all the things in the world, clearly the fact I like to sleep with hot sweaty men is going to end humanity. Not, you know, nuclear war, or global warming, or plague, or global economic collapse...

    Nope, just the fact I'd rather put my dick in a man's butt, rather than a woman. ::sigh::

    Gratz on 1001 posts and LOL you sleeping with men. SINNER.

    (psst, so do I)

    As a gay catholic, this is one of those moments where you go, "hmm, how can I still like Jesus and the Chrisitan concept of an all-loving God but get the fuck away from loonies who hate me."

    Being Catholic, Pope Benedict's opinion seems to be based more on homophobia rather than the Church's values. icon_sad.gif

    The Church It teaches that while homosexuality is not sinful, homosexual acts are... that makes as much sense as a craving to jump off a cliff. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Quite true. Then again, the Church values so much of 'their' own values that they'd like to impose it on everyone. Even to this day and age, the Church still goes on their crusade of converting people. They just keep driving people away instead of welcoming worshipers with open arms.

    The pope sounds a lot like President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or other religious zealots of Iran doesn't he?

    On 07/19/08 a new wave of anti-gay repression in Iran came to world attention with the torture and hanging of two gay teenagers in the city of Masha; they were each lashed 228 times before having the nooses placed around their necks. In response to the world-wide protests of these executions, the anti-gay crackdown has been stepped up considerably by the Ahmadinejad government—which has been branded as flaunting international law that forbids the torture and execution of minors under two treaties to which Iran is signatory.


    More executions of young men thought to be gay have been reported or scheduled. Just months ago, a 29-year-old gay Iranian in London who’d been ordered to be deported back to Iran killed himself, rather than face what he was convinced was certain torture and execution by Ahmadinejad’s homo-hating clerical zealots. In the last several weeks, we have received reports that gay Iranians who were expected to arrive in the West have been blocked from fleeing Iran—since Ahmadinejad’s government is afraid that the horrific stories of repression they would tell would further inflame world sentiment against the Sharia-inspired wave of terror.

    Both seem to want to do away with GAYS!

    oh please, if it weren't for gay men there wouldn't even be a church. this is also true of the black churches. in a great number of them the preacher and the music director are fucking. if the pope were to get his wish there'd be no one at all working for his church or attending its masses.

    If the Roman Catholic Church thinks a rigid sexual dichotomy is necessary for civilization's salvation, then it has one major task at hand:

    Abolish the Roman Catholic clergy.

    Few things are more transgressive to dichotomous heterosexuality than the celebate, aims-to-be-compassionate-while-male, Roman Catholic priest.

    And what do we expect from a man that wears a very ornate dress, an snow cone hat, and could double for the emperor from star wars?

    Here's a little song sung by the parish midway through Mass,

    "Whatsoever you do,
    To the least of my bro-o-thers,
    That, you do unto meeeee.."

    Interesting that some can sing a song like that and not understand the lyrics...

    Guys,read between the lines here. The pope needs breeders! France in the next generation is going to demographically switch from Catholic to Islam. In the south 30% of the breeders are muslim already. Catholics are not breeding in Germany or Italy. Islam in the long run is gonna be a lot worse for gays then the pope.
