Another hypocritical statement from the Pope, who has been accused of covering up for pedophile priests. Benedict's hyperbole regarding the "danger" of gay marriage is almost laughable compared to the damage that the Catholic church has had on so many families for promoting homophobia and for protecting pedophilia. Therein lies the real danger to humanity!
Via LGBTQ Nation:
Pope Benedict XVI used his Monday “State of the World” address to condemn efforts around the world to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples, calling same-sex marriage a threat to “human dignity and the future of humanity itself.”

Initially speaking about economic issues, the “Arab Spring,” and of the importance of education, the pontiff switched gears and took aim at the LGBT community.
“Pride of place goes to the family, based on the marriage of a man and woman,” the leader of the 1.3-billion member Roman Catholic Church said.
“This is not a simple social convention, but rather the fundamental cell of every society. Consequently, policies which undermine the family threaten human dignity and the future of humanity itself,” he told the crowd of 180 diplomats gathered in the Vatican.
Next month, according to New York Daily News, the pope will elevate New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan, a leading opponent of marriage equality to cardinal, the elite group that leads critical Roman Catholic institutions. Dolan once attacked the Obama administration for not supporting a federal ban on gay marriage, saying the the choice would drive “conflict” between church and state of “enormous proportions.”
