Pope against gay union equal under law

Note the pope is not just against gay marriage. He is against them having the same legal rights and entitlements that heterosexual couples have.

The Catholic leader said on Friday: “There is also a need to acknowledge and promote the natural structure of marriage as the union of a man and a woman in the face of attempts to make it juridically equivalent to radically different types of union.

“Such attempts actually harm and help to destabilise marriage, obscuring its specific nature and its indispensable role in society”, the Pope told worshipers.

Which rights would he not like to see equal? Being at the death bed of the person you love? To have the wishes of your will honoured? To have the same pension rights in your old age? To let society know how much you passionately love someone? To be notified and treated as next of kin?

To be treated as a human being with human rights?

Let the pope speak – his words reveal a black heart lacking compassion more then we could write. With every word he not only becomes a relic of a persecuting age, but a figure of actual hate. At a time of peace to men of good will he has spent it all some time ago,

His words on World Peace Day tell us everything we need to know.

  1. The trouble is that people listen to him. And his “Priests” preach foul persecution against gay people, and are admired and praised by homophobes, who know no better because they listen to the priests. Some people believe that he is “defending marriage”.

    Let the pope speak- free speech for all- but we need the gay voices, and the voices of the allies, and the condemnation of his bigotry.
