The head of the Catholic church is once again demonizing gay and lesbians and offering no proof whatsoever to back up his hateful claims. He is claiming we threaten heterosexual marriage when we demand the same rights and responsibilities. This time, he is lying to the French people, who are working to grant gays and lesbians marriage equality. Ask yourself what is the true threat to society? Is it a gay couple wanting to be recognized by their government or a religious leader inspiring fear and hatred?
Via Gay Star News:
The head of the Catholic church, Pope Benedict XVI, told a group of French bishops visiting Castel Gandolfo that the introduction of gay marriage will threaten society and the family in France.
The Pope attacked yesterday (21 September)France’s plans to legalise same-sex marriage without mentioning the issue directly.
He said: ‘The family is threatened by a conception of human nature that is proven to be defective, ... defending the family and life in society is prophetic and anything but regressive. Marriage and the family are institutions that must be promoted and defended from every possible misrepresentation of their true nature, since whatever is harmful to them will in fact be injurious to society itself.’
