“Pope gives special holiday hate speech against gays because it’s Christmas”
Pope Benedict used his annual Christmas message to denounce gay marriage, saying that it destroyed the “essence of the human creature. In one of his most important speeches of the year, the Pope stressed that a person’s gender identity is God-given and unchangeable. As a result, he sees gay marriage as a “manipulation of nature.”
DK: Too bad for the pope, no one—not even Catholics—care what he has to say about, well, anything:
However, 59% of Catholics in America favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry, according to a poll released this year by the Public Religion Research Institute.
That’s exactly what is worrying the Pope. He fears the opinions people form in their own consciences will lead them away from the doctrines set forth by the church.
The Pope has said that gay marriage, like abortion and euthanasia, is a threat to world peace. here
Liberals almost can’t be held accountable for their stupidity, hatred and open distaste for most things moral and ethical — its difficult to think clearly with such a darkened mind ( Ephesians 4:18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts.)
But of course, they are, as we all are, held ‘accountable’ for our actions and deeds, in this life and the next.
On the other side, of course we all have a right to our own opinions — just not our own facts. According to the First Amendment to the Constitution, government is to keep it’s big ugly laws and mandates out of the church . . . and yet the Obama regime mandates what religious institutions must pay for (abortions, contraception, etc.) in their illegal and unconstitutional Obamacare dictates.
Fact is, our religious institutions, churches and synonyms have their ‘religious views’ which should be respect by government — and at least given some due respect by all of us– unless and until those ‘religious institutions’ becomes a detriment to citizens safety: aka Islam and it’s shaia law and “radical” muslims.
Secondly, who gives a whip what “59%” of Catholics say regarding thier personal view of homosexual marriage — the church they say they’re apart of and hold respect for, as well as it’s Bible and God, say NO.
The Catholic church, the Methodist or Baptist church or a Jewish synagog, has a legal and constitutional “right” to their beliefs. It should be a relevant fact, even to a Liberal, that a church (for the most part, but not all) hold to God given commandments. That should be of be of importance to all humans.
Not defending the Pope or a religion I’m not a part of, but he is correct in asserting our national government shouldn’t be supporting ‘gay’ marriage — marriage has always been, in all religions and cultures, between a man and woman. There is no need to change that to suite and pacify a few liberal thinkers. And thus, what the Pope said is as far from “hate speech” as God is from endorsing evil.
If the liberal rags, want to ‘rage’ on “hate”, why don’t they demand Islam stop treating their woman worse than their camels? Allow them a few human rights like walking around without being covered in sack cloth, allowing them to walk along their man and acquiesce to their not to stoned to death? At least they’d be on the side of right and not jack-backwards.
And so, the only question is really: why can’t Liberals show a little of the “tolerance” they proclaim and quietly allow those with religious, godly standards, to stand by those standards? After all, no one is being beheaded or even nailed to a cross.
