Pope calls gay marriages “evil” and “dangerous to society.”

Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Pope calls for halt to ‘evil’ gay marriages

The Vatican yesterday urged Catholic politicians to actively campaign against legalising gay marriages which it said were evil, deviant and posed a grave threat to society.

Gay marriages are evil? Did the Pope really say they were evil?! What a fucking bigot. Where the fuck was the Pope when his little priests and bishops were busily molesting children and covering it up? I don’t recall him condemning his clergy as being “evil” for the crimes they committed. Gay marriage a threat to society? How much of a fucking threat to society are priests and bishops and cardinals that abuse the public’s trust in their supposed moral authority allowing for hundreds if not thousands of kids to be sexually abused for decades?! How can any Catholic of good conscious listen to this idiot and not see the hypocrisy running rampant through their church?

It’s probably a good thing I have a snowball’s chance of ever meeting the Pope. I’d end up bitch slapping him something fierce.

    I have a problem with the incredibly politically incorrect statement you made:

    It

  2. Anyone know how to get licensed to perform gay marriages? Is it possible to get a multistate license? I’m thinking of covering the west coast, since I may move to Oregon or Washington.

    They’re starting to really honk me off. The fearful and prejudiced and ignorant, that is. Time to take action…and this is one of the better nose-tweaks I can think of.

  3. Between the Pope and the Shrub, it’s been an interesting week for gays, hasn’t it?

    As far as I’m concerned, they can both go screw themselves. Like you said, Les, what about the countless children molested through the ages?

  4. What a load of crap!  Some of the most loving and beautiful relationships I’ve see are gay couples.  Society (used as a general term here) needs to quit focusing on people’s plumbing and start looking at what’s in their hearts!

  5. The Pope held this huge mass in Toronto last year and a nearby furniture store ended up getting flooded with all the pilgrim’s sewage. Now we have legal gay marriages. There must be some sort of sign in there somewhere.

    Dude, when get a break from taking hits of Ecstasy and staring at glow sticks, and snortin’ that “mary wanna”, can you “hip” me to what your last comment meant?

  8. Okay i am researhing Gay Marriages for a project in one of my classes, and in almost every article ive read, it says that marriage is a sacrid thing held between a man and a woman…

    well if you were to go out and ask most gay people, its not the marriage, or even the tax breaks that have anything to do with them wanting to be legally bound. its the fact that if their Life partner were to be hurt, or something of that nature, and they were to go to the hospital, they wouldnt be able to go into the hospital room to go and see them *legally*… if their life partner were to die, they would have no say over what happend to their body (even if they knew what their partner wanted, and the partners parents decided to do something else)…

  10. With Thanksgiving coming up I thought I would remind everyone that the little flap that covers the turkeys asshole is commonly referred to as “the popes nose”. Seems so appropriate, doesn’t it?

  11. My grandfather always referred to it as the preacher’s nose, but I guess it is kind of the same thing.

  12. Oh please, enough with the I wouldn’t be able to visit my dying gay friend in the hospital.  Hasn’t anyone heard of a durable power of attorney for healthcare?  Besides, with domestic violence on the rise in marriages it would probably be their life partner that sent them there anyway.  Why do gays want to be married anyway, do they want to suffer through infidelity, spousal abuse, spousal rape, in-laws from hell and all that other marriage related crap?  Get a fuckin’ dog, at least when your tired of the dog you can shot it.

  13. The popes awsome gay marrige is evil and all u homos are evil to its adam and eve not adam and steve (> “)> Pope

    In connection with the enactment of the Defense of Marriage Act, on 01/31/97, the General Accounting Office identified federal laws in which benefits, rights, and privileges are contingent on marital status.

    The result is a collection of 1049 federal laws classified to the United States Code in which marital status is a factor.  To give readers a sense of the kinds of federal laws in which marital status is a factor, they classified the laws on the list into the following 13 categories:

    Social Security and Related Programs,
    Housing, and Food Stamps
    Veterans’ Benefits
    Taxation
    Federal Civilian and Military Service Benefits
    Employment Benefits and Related Laws
    Immigration, Naturalization, and Aliens Indians
    Trade, Commerce, and Intellectual Property
    Financial Disclosure and Conflict of Interest
    Crimes and Family Violence
    Loans, Guarantees, and Payments in Agriculture
    Federal Natural Resources and Related Laws
    Miscellaneous Laws

    A durable power of attorney just scratches the surface.

  15. Gee I wonder if David will see this and what his next “I don’t mind personally what gays do or get” argument against gay marriage will be. Oh, I forgot – there’s always the Bible (again).

    Thanks, rudycat!

  16. HAa Ha. I was just saying Fuck Islam and Fuck christians and especialy fuck the pope right up the ol’ papal pooper so I looked up ‘fuck the pope’ and found yer web site. I used to live in Michigan but now I’m in the puget sound area. Glad to see people are fucking the pope back home.

  17. You are all disrespectful bunch of fags, you have no reason to disrespect the pope. We have freedom of expression and just like all you fags say how fucking a guy is good he has the right to say it’s nasty, exactly what it is. “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” Leviticus 20:13. Go ahead gay fuckers, burn in hell!

  18. I’ve been promoted to fag!  Woo hoo!  Brock, let’s go pick up some guys.  I can finally hold my head up high.

  19. Actually I’m a heterosexual male, but I will concede that I am disrespectful of the Pope. He’s an asshole. I think it’s pretty fucking funny that you bitch about us saying nasty things about the Pope and then whine about how the Pope has the right to say what he wants because of freedom of expression.

    I have every reason to disrespect the Pope and, under the same freedom of expression that you use to defend the Pope’s bigoted comments, I have the right to express that disrespect for the Pope. Just as I have a right to laugh my ass off over how fucking clueless you are. I doubt you’ll be winning any awards for Christian of the year with that comment! 😀

  20. If anyone wants to perform gay marriages, there are two things I can think of right away: either become an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister (sorry, no link for that one.) or you can go to the Universal Life Church (http://www.ulc.org).

    Good luck!

  22. Cindy, Cindy, Cindy….

    Nobody does Leviticus anymore.  It’s just SOO Old Testament.

  23. you people need to find work.  you have way too much time on your hands and not enough brain cells in your heads!

  24. It would help if we knew whom you were addressing there, Shane. Though your comments are amusing either way when one considers your punctuation skills.

  25. of course hes a bigot, you go through the hitler youth probram and bigotry is a requrement for graduation.  Fucker can go and sell himself in the german underground to some whore who loves the old guys.  I live for the day that the vatican is utterly removed from existance, it is a monument to glorified bigotry and misanthropy.

  26. WhiteBlood: I live for the day that the vatican is utterly removed from existence, it is a monument to glorified bigotry and misanthropy.

    Gotta tell ya, mate, I’m more fearful of the Evangeliclods and the likes of Westbro, than The Holy Roman Catholic Church.
    The HRCC is not, now, preaching hate and ‘the end is nigh’.
    Sure, they’re not as relaxed as some but, other than Buddhists, who is?

  27. WBOTH, keep in mind you’re reading the archives. At the time I wrote this Pope John Paul II was still alive and kicking. After all this entry is from back in 2003.

  28. Wow I feel out of date now.  Either way, I don’t suppose the situation has changed much between John Paul 2 and Benedict the 16th.  I still stand with my statement that the catholic church stands as a major threat.  The evangelicals, while they pose a threat without a doubt, aren’t as large of a target, and that if the big one topples, some of the rest will follow suit. 

    Also, divisions such as the dominionists and other ‘soldiers of christ’ exist, people willing to go much farther than the general church-goer to seek supremacy.

    Also, the Taoists are pretty relaxed and close to Buddhists and I wanna thank Les for waking me up as to the date on this, I’m not all the way there sometimes.

  29. WhiteBlood: I’m not all the way there sometimes.

    Nor am I, so don’t go thinking you’re special. LOL

  30. Am gonna be honest I don’t like the pope or cathoilics 4 that matter just because of the whole kiddy fidling, I dont mind gays but what I don’t like is how some (not saying all) gays seem 2 overreact bout everything and sort of try and persuade hetrosexuals to turn gay cos i think tht the ones doin tht ARE evil! The world is going 2 fuck just now with all this gay rights crap which started everyone getting rights which is totally fucking rong (e.g sex offenders etc having more rights than some normal hard working people!!) And something else that really gets to me is how the fuck muslims and other religions apart from Christians can say anything they fuckin want these days and come over to the UK and have christmas trees banned in hospitals because they dont beleive in it but if we were to go 2 a muslim country and say something like fuck allah we wouldn’t be leaving that country alive!! It’s about time we stop people just walking into our countries and doing what they like (UK & US) and then all these countries like Iraq call us evil when its them thats evil but just cant fuckin see it!! sorry bit of a change of subject but just needed 2 get that off my chest! please comment me back and tell me what you think about this!! Thanks

  31. I dont mind gays but what I don’t like is how some (not saying all) gays seem 2 overreact bout everything and sort of try and persuade hetrosexuals to turn gay

    Did you know that you that gays get ‘Convo Points’ for each conversion?  Convo Points can be redeemed for gift certificates for Crate and Barrel, Ikea, or Bed Bath, and Beyond.

    The world is going 2 fuck just now with all this gay rights crap which started everyone getting rights which is totally fucking rong (e.g sex offenders etc having more rights than some normal hard working people!!)

    Oh Christ, I know exactly what you mean, you gave the faggots rights, and now everybody wanted them.

    It’s about time we stop people just walking into our countries and doing what they like (UK & US) and then all these countries like Iraq call us evil when its them thats evil but just cant fuckin see it!!

    In the US, they just come across the border and then start selling tacos and cleaning toilets.  I hate it too when countries start talking shit; the thing I can’t figure out is how countries have learned to talk, I mean they are just dirt and water and rocks, they ain’t got no mouth, how do they make the sounds?

    please comment me back and tell me what you think about this!!

    I really hate to be a spelling Nazi, but 2 and 4 are numbers, not words.

  32. You gotta wonder what Crombie was Googling to run across this entry.

    Thanks for giving us someone to point to and laugh at, Crombie.

  33. IDM:

    I hope Crombie is one of the regulars having some fun.  Nobody can be that spelling impaired.  That aside, you mentioned this:

    Did you know that you that gays get ‘Convo Points’ for each conversion?

    I didn’t, but I’ve always suspected so.  Can you use them to upgrade hotels and air travel too?

  34. microbe (I love anagrams): I don’t mind gays but what I don’t like is how some (not saying all) gays seem 2 overreact bout everything and sort of try and persuade heterosexuals to turn gay.

    Damn!!!
    I must be a weird or weirdly wired – never once has a gay man ever asked me to turn gay.
    I’d suggest you stop wearing that silly make-up and pink T-shirts that have ‘Fuck me; I’m gay’ printed on the front … with a purple tele-tubbie on the back.  wink
    I’m with Sadie on this one, microbe; you’re a fuckin’ wanker. smile

  35. I add this for no reason … of course I’m pissed ‘n stoned and I’m waiting for my stuff to do its stuff in the oven … I’d give you a recipe but the keys are starting to blur … or my fingers are hibernating.  wink
    I just saw Desmond Tutu on a TV show.
    He was at a Homeless Soccer thingy between a few countries, including Oz (we lost big-time) & USA, in Capetown, South Africa.
    As Jon Stewart says: You’re the nicest person I ever metsmile
    Damn man nearly makes me cry with his simplicity.
    What a wise man; of course he’s open to a bitta parody. smile
    And another addition for no reason … and I could go on but you’d becopme even more bored … smile

  36. I didn’t, but I’ve always suspected so.  Can you use them [Convo Points] to upgrade hotels and air travel too?

    Not yet, but I have heard that they are trying to work a deal with a few of the airlines, cruise lines, and hotels.  I also heard that a deal with Thomas Pink is in the works.

  37. Well at least a gay couple wouldn’t gripe about who left the toilet seat up.

    That is a MAJOR advantage, the downside is that the back and edge of the toilet bowl needs cleaning twice as often.  Other advantages are that we only need one underwear drawer and we can identify the function of any device or clothing left in the bathroom.  Also there are no razors left on the edge of the bathtub and there are no feminine hygiene products anywhere (new or used).

  38. If anyone wants to perform gay marriages, there are two things I can think of right away: either become an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister (sorry, no link for that one.) or you can go to the Universal Life Church (http://www.ulc.org).

    In the US, legal gay marriages can only be performed in Mass.  The requirements for becoming a U-U minister are about the same as for most main line Christian churches (it is not easy).  There are some US Christian churches that perform gay marriages (where legal), such as Metropolitan Community Churches and United Church of Christ.  I would also say that some Episcopalian churches will also perform gay marriages, but most or all of the Episcopalian ministers that would have performed gay marriages are now refusing to perform ANY marriages.
