Pope Benedict XVI: People are manipulating God-given gender to suit sexual choices, destroying the “essence of the human creature”

December 21, 2012

Note how the media always takes a defense of traditional values and turns it into something ‘anti,’ or ‘an attack’ in their headline.

Benedict XVI made the comments in his annual Christmas speech to the Vatican bureaucracy — one of his most important speeches of the year. He dedicated it this year to promoting family values in the face of vocal campaigns in France, the United States, Britain and elsewhere to legalize same-sex marriage.

In his remarks, Benedict quoted the chief rabbi of France, Gilles Bernheim, in saying the campaign for granting gays the right to marry and adopt children was an “attack” on the traditional family made up of a father, mother and children.

“People dispute the idea that they have a nature, given to them by their bodily identity, that serves as a defining element of the human being,” he said. “They deny their nature and decide that it is not something previously given to them, but that they make it for themselves.”

via Pope takes anti-gay marriage stance to new level.

    Funny how foreign opinion is relevant when it supports wingnut bigotry – And American public opinion increasingly rejects it. Maybe you “job creators” should go Galt to where your rancid views are greeted more lovingly.

      Funny how a world leader of one of the great religions is somehow “foreign”, and how in the last ten minutes it is “bigotry” to hold views centuries old, and universally respected regarding a cultural norm.

      Only a hate-twisted, moronic, lying Collectivist troll would even smear that crap on this thread.

      And here you are…

    Probably the only good thing about the ascension of a former nazi youth to the papacy is that ignoring the Vatican is now the default position for regular folks.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Well, that is at least a MOSTLY lie, and you a liar.

      What a POS.

      Children were CONSCRIPTED into the Hitler Youth, liar. As was the Pope.

    Last I checked, genius, the Pope was the absolute monarch of Vatican City, a sovereign state. And evidently you take your marching orders from him. What other global “religious leaders” do you swear your allegiance to, over your supposed own country? Little matter I suppose. Traitors and bigots like you are loosing their grip on power as fast as DOMESTIC political / social opinion demands. And scared little boys like you can’t stand it. If only you and your kind weren’t so capable of evil, it would be comical to just pop a cold one and watch your demise.
