Pope: Gay marriage is 'evil'
Evil, huh? This from an organization that has killed countless victims in the name of religion. But love is evil? Uh huh. How about we talk about the church's actions during the Holocaust?
Speaking of that, the article adds that "the Pope also calls abortion a 'legal extermination' comparable to attempts to wipe out Jews and other groups in the 20th century." Really? So a woman choosing to end something that isn't a viable human being but, rather, a potential human (as is any sperm or egg, by the way) that can't survive outside of her, is comparable to genocide? Regardless of one's political stand on abortion, any comparison to the Holocaust is simply offensive.
The article adds that the Vatican's top doctrinal official said that the Pope was "only warning that evil lurked everywhere, 'even in liberal political systems.'"
You shouldn't worry too much about "liberal political systems" until you clean out your own closets, guys. Maybe once you own up to the child molesting problem--instead of having the molesters hidden/moved and trying to cover your own asses--you can look to the rest of your operation. Why do you have fortunes in art and other treasures when people are starving in the world? My other half--you know, the guy with whom I am evil in your eyes--is a Christian, but his church congregation worships in a basic structure, sufficient for meeting to praise God. They use their money for charity, instead of building fancy structures.
The idea of the Vatican taking "moral" stands just doesn't sit well with me. People who live in glass churches...
