I say destroy the religion, and then let the religious save themselves.
I say destroy both and leave only the atheists.
So the world will only be inhabited by brain-infested demons that does poorly on saving themselves? I think not!
I take (a modest amount of) pride in the fact that I studied at the university Ratzinger fled from because of the liberal students What a moron and extended back!
I say destroy everything, just for fun.
Can I ride you?
I'm neither Catholic or Gay, but I do have an online gay stalker. I see no reason to protect him.
I used to be Catholic sort of....
Man, I forgot how crazy it gets.
So, someone wants to say it isn't?
Nah, just abandon your current one.
it IS different, but those words make it sound negative instead of neutral, so I will disagree with the message carried by the connotation of those words.
Hey nice to know you are supporting the shooting of me in the head. Ill remenber that with your other anti-muslim, anti-jew, hate loving traits.
I know that homosexuality isnt a major strong point in the Catholic faith, but in the face of a changing world, could they at least downplay something this controvesial? I dont mean like change their beliefs that gays=evil. But like talk less about it and focus on more changeble things like Torture, child workers and soldiers, religious tensions...
I mean arent there other pressing problems for the church?
If by any chance tons of oil gets discovered underneath of the Vatican Building, does that give America the right to give the Vatican citizens "Freedom" by invading and getting rid of the "absolute Monarchy"?
Well, if the damn priests are so keen on that they could start by dropping the skirts and having sex with women instead of the choir boys...
Why yes! I'm not sure how I feel about this. I'm gay, I'm Catholic, and I understand, maybe even agree, with what Benedict is saying. Sex is isn't just an game, the penis/vagina isn't a toy- it exists to reproduce, and everything else is just... 'going along for the ride', I guess. Homosexual acts, what with the fact that they could never be anything more than entertainment, defeats the purpose of sex. It's an abnormality, like pedophilia the only difference is that homosexuality can be practiced without doing harm to children.
Don't go thinking that Homoseuxality is OK because God created it, it's natural, gays can't help their urges. That's not completely true. IThere are many theories on the causes of homosexuality, but what (most) of them are sure of is that nobody is born gay, or strait, or anything like that. Sexual Orientation develops years later. it may very well be that homosexuality is a social construct (there's a very interesting theory that argues that people become gay because, when they were younger, they had a small sexual attraction to someone of their own sex, and unconsciously thought 'I must be gay', which intensified their homosexual urges, until they really were gay!).
And the 'urges' argument is certainly hypocritical - after all, the pedophiles and necrophiles and coprophiles can't control their urges, either - and yet a pedophile is a synonym for child molester, and these are all mental disorders. Personally I think it would be better to classify all non-hetero orientations as 'sexual anormalities'.
Of course, I don't actually put any of these ideas into practice, what with me being a hypocrite and all. Just don't go thinking that il Pape is some bigoted evil nutjob who's burning gays for being the spawn of Satan.
do you masturbate, bob ?
Um... surely this is progress...
God, that Catholic church is so full of Catholics.
the pope says lots of things. catholics don't listen to most of it.
He is talking about the sin, not the sinner.
Moderator Action: On 2nd thought, I think this thread is best left closed. Too much flamebaiting going on in here.
