By: Benny_Acosta Tue, 12 Jan 2010 20:33:46 +0000 Gay marriage is not a threat to creation. God alone commands creation. A gay married couple is not going to be the end of God’s ability to create.

No person has the right to begrudge another human being the love they find with another. If you’re against gay marriage then don’t marry someone of the same sex as you. It’s not that tough to figure out. Live and let live. But then again the “live and let live” philosophy requires a level of maturity that seems to be far beyond the reach of many so called “human beings”.

By: drewbie Tue, 12 Jan 2010 20:28:32 +0000 Technically, there is no discrimination, since a gay man has the same rights I do: I can’t marry a man either. It may not be fair, and it may not be justice, but it definately isn’t discrimination.

Until laws are passed requiring people to enter a gay marraige, I don’t see this undermining religion. Is a gay marraige less sinful if than a gay relationship?

By: Anon86 Tue, 12 Jan 2010 14:58:48 +0000 Uh…what does he mean “in the name of fighting discrimination”?

The laws are fighting discrimination, period. That is what the laws are for, and what they are doing. There is no false flag here.

Except for the leader of a homophobic religion who, in the 21st century no less, preaches hate and discrimination under the modest goal of “protecting creation”.

The idea that the Catholic Church can dictate terms for marriage, a social tradition which existed long before the Old Testament was even scratched onto some papyrus, is laughable.

And in case “la Papa” bothered to look lately, we have more humans then we know what to do with.

Perhaps he is worried that if more people realise that religious bigotry is unacceptable, they might stop turning into good Catholics?

Yet dispite being a religion prejudiced against homosexuality, they can’t openly admit to being the modern inheritors of medieval bigotry. So they keep fluffing over their hate with diplomatic words and polite phrases.

Leading to the same result as seeing Hitler in a dinner jacket. You can dress it up how you like, but hate is still hate. Even if it tries to have good table manners.

(PS. Yes I am aware the pope is German. If you think that it is distasteful to link a German pope to a Hitler comment, then don’t. Hitler was born in Austria.)

By: ryukage99 Tue, 12 Jan 2010 04:53:13 +0000 The peope need to get over himself and realize that not everyone fallows or will fallows his beliefs. A religious leader should never tell secular government how run,they don’t tell him to run.
