Aren't they making preparations to keep his "legacy" alive with the next Pope?

Yes, he's made from lesser Pope parts and is just waiting on the vacuum unit that serves as John Paul II's heart. Currently he's being locked somewhere in a tank in the Vatican, and once JP II kicks, a bolt of lightning will be the final catalyst.

Yeah, this is exactly why religion is just a huge useless void. The Pope should be ashamed, for condoning the rape of innocent children and condemning love between two adults. Grrrr smell the fillpin' hypocrisy here Mr. Pope.

You know what I really fear in this current climate? That we will take huge steps backwards. I feel the attack on gay marriage is the first step in the religious right dehumanizing and vilifying gays (again). Like they have become too close to being considered human, and they need to take them down a few pegs in the minds of the common and gullible man.

Sheesh just makes me so pissed off. In recent years it's become more common for kids to come out in high school (in some cities). Now we may return to a time where people throw themselves into empty heterosexual marriages in order to try to be looked at as normal.

When I was a kid I had a friend who was quite a bit older... well in his 30's (he was my boss and friend)... Anyway he got married because he thought he should. He later divorced and came out. I can't imagine what that must have been like for him. How awful to feel you need to betray who you are.

Sorry for the rant dude. :( I will keep it short from now on.

I am glad you didn't mind.

Oh, and I like reading all the thought provoking posts you make your your journal. Thank you for sharing.

I washed my hands of Catholicism long ago. I can see it wasn't a wasted effort.
23rd-Feb-2005 04:59 pm (UTC)
Ah yes, you as well. That figures!

Didn't a lot of gay men hide in the monastic life style of the Catholic ministry because they did not want to be" found out?" Does he consider those men of the cloth evil?


That is such a harsh word. Something created or spawn by the devil himself. That is what gays are. Why? Is it unholy to love someone? Is it unholy because there is sex involved and no procreation? Are gays, ergo, as evil as masturbation? As condoms? As a really good dream?

Is there nothing the "Representative of Christ on Earth" has to say about the evil of child rape? Good Christ, maybe those priests need some therapy, but they also need to be punished for their crimes as members of society and denounced by Mr. " I am Christ's representative on earth."

I grew up Roman Catholic and no one in my family gave two shits what the pope said was wrong or right.

I want to read his whole opinion on homosexuality. Did he REALLY say homosexuality was EVIL? I still cannot believe it. Perhaps it was taken out of context?
I am not buying his fucking book though.

Well now you KNOW... you can't go about having gay clergy, gay christians, gay catholics OR gay marriage... and of course, he manages to hit on how evil abortion is in the same breath...
But if priests want to molest young boys, or if nuns want to have sex with monks and bury their children after murdering them, and hiding their tiny corpses in the ground of the tunnels between the convents and the monestaries...
well now...

Certainly you can see the difference right?

You can't? You must not be wearing your hypocrisy glasses... try again.

Aw, hell. I am at a complete loss for words. Why is it his business what people do behind their colsed door if it isn't hurting anyone?

I have one thing to say to his statement: BAH!
