Pope Benedict Sets Stage for UK Visit with Attack on Gay Marriage

Pedophile-enabler Pope Benedict has attacked same-sex marriage again, Bloomberg reports:

Pope "Benedict, speaking before paying a historic visit to the U.K. later this week, said the Roman Catholic Church 'cannot approve of legal initiatives that imply a re-evaluation of the life of the couple and the family.' The pope, in a reference to legalized marriage among homosexuals, said such laws 'contribute to the weakening of the principles of natural law' and to 'confusion about society’s values.' He made his remarks today while receiving Germany’s new envoy to the Holy See at his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo south of Rome, according to a transcript posted on the Vatican’s website."

On his UK visit, the Pope will reportedly comment on the UK's equality law:

"Media reports indicate the head of the Catholic Church will not stray into overt criticism of the government which is hosting him, but he will suggest that Christians ought to be allowed the religious freedom to, for example, wear crucifixes at work. The comments are likely to stoke controversy over Britain's equality laws. Earlier this year, Chris Grayling faced outrage when he defended two Christian B&B owners who refused a room to a couple on the basis that they were gay."

A massive protest of the Pope is planned for this Saturday in London, supported by several gay and lesbian groups. Details HERE.

  4. I'm Roman Catholic and most of us think he's the worst Pope in centuries. Many, many Catholics don't think he got the position honestly. Infallible my ass!

  6. England should bar him from entering their country. Anyone who would head an organization that trumpets outright discrimination of one group and proclaims themselves to be Christian are little more than hypocrites.

  7. He's the world's biggest hypocrite.

  8. The bishop of Rome and his advisers would do well to remember that the british people will not take gladly to being lectured about their laws and the decisions of their democratically elected parliament by an elderly german who was a member of the Hitler Youth (even if he had no choice about it).

    He is a guest in our country and as such we will expect him to act like one - or we will set Prince Phillip on him...

  9. So His Unholiness is going to lecture the Brits? He doesn't yet understand that Brits have a low tolerance for crap. In the meantime, here's a classic smackdown on catholic pedophilia:

  10. A few years ago, our Epsicopal Rector, Gordon McBride, gave a beautiful sermon on "baseball cap certainty." He was coming to church that Sunday and saw a nut on the corner, wearing a baseball cap, and one of those "you're going to hell because God hates you just because you're breathing" signs. Pretty much said it all. Ripped people like that for a good 30 minutes, loved every word of it. Same nut, different outfit, same baseball cap, I'm afraid.

    Oh how Jesus must be writing in the sand on this guy and asking him who will cast the first stone.

  11. Does he look like Gargamel to anyone else?

  12. "...he will suggest that Christians ought to be allowed the religious freedom to, for example, wear crucifixes at work."

    Is this illegal in Britain? I can't speak for Brits, but I think plenty of Americans would be pretty upset about a law like that. Freedom of religion and all...

  13. Guess he won't be coming to Iowa anytime soon.

  14. As a Brit, I fail to understand why he is even visiting.

    Did Henry VIII not take care of this problem!!!!

  15. Freedom of religion...the second someone starts to bring religion into the workplace is the second it creates a hostile work environment, and I push for that person's firing. Freedom FROM religion and all...

  18. @BRADFORD: it was based on a workplace rule at British Airways that you couldn't wear any jewelry when in a customer facing role and a Christian challenged it by claiming her crucifix necklace should be exempt because, you know, religion is always above the law.

  19. Just a reminder that "any law" the Pope refers to includes proposals to decriminalize homosexuality. He tries to make it sound "family friendly" but he's really talking about supporting laws which put people like us in prison in dozens of countries across the globe.

  20. Hopefully, he drops dead soon!

  21. I swear he looks like the evil Emperor from Star Wars.

  22. You should all get together and burn a copy of the Bible. Will that make you feel better?

  23. He's despicable...

    Europe is struggling with Muslim women completely covered in the workplace & trying to legislate that it is not allowed.

    A previous poster has it right, we need from FROM religion- all of it.

    Americans are busy protesting mosques & amplified calls to prayer, but it escapes them completely that we are forced to listen to church-bells several times a day.

    I hope Britain shows up Big-Time to protest this backward relic, enabling & promoting further hatred in the world.

    Drop dead, Papa Ratzi.

  24. ha ha..the kid friendly cap...it's rather grotesque in the context of the pedophile priest scandal. Now they're making their costumes more "relevant" to little league?

  25. @ dreamfish
    So they baned the waring of crosses in any workplace at any time that seems overly impeding on the right to freedom of religion. I would be pissed if that happened in the US. I don't see any reason that waring a cross, a star of david or any such thing is wrong or should be offensive. It is simply something that means something to the person that is wearing it. I know I like to wear my cross nectless to work (most of the time under my work shirt to keep it out of the way) because I means something to me.
