    Well, it certainly wasn't an over-indulgent mother, that's for sure. Still, I guess I lucked out.

    I can only assume that the logic is that if everyone was homosexual, and there was no "dick-in-vag" conception, then humanity would die.

    Since the church is against IV fertilization and the like, this isn't a large leap in thought.

    but that would require
    1.) all of humanity to be gay
    2.) all of humanity that is gay to no longer care about humanity and let themselves die and not give birth other ways?

    and not saying YOU agree that it is a threat but even in some fantasy world if 1 and 2 became true it would still have nothing to do with gay marriage.

    I think that's the point.

    In other words, Pope Benedict is desperate because same-sex relationships and families are becoming more accepted. Such acceptance is based on people becoming more familiar with gay individuals through personal experience, the media and studies that disprove myths about them. Because those myths are easily disproved with tangible evidence, Benedict has realized that he must try to scare people into agreeing with him by appealing to more vague and subjective concepts like "dignity" and "promotion of family" and "social cohesion".

    Frankly, Benedict is moving the church backwards as this ridiculousness undermines its increased embracing of scientific inquiry in modern history by basing arguments about measurable realities, like the effect of same-sex parenting on children, on nonsense rather than research. By making these comments, he's likely just going to alienate more Catholics, thereby continuing to make the Church its own worst enemy. One would think that after its child sex abuse scandal, it would take a dose of humility. Guess not.
    I don't think the Pope is moving the Church backward; seems to me that he's keeping it right where it is. Most Catholics aren't going to disagree with him that ""The family unit is fundamental for the educational process and for the development both of individuals and states...."

    In fact, I don't think most people generally disagree with the concept of the family unit being fundamental to society. Where they may sincerely disagree is in what defines "family unit."

    The child, in this case female and according to the natural order of things, has to know what a man and woman are doing. Again, it is the natural order of things. It is how we survive as a species.

    Two men kissing, do you look away?

    Do you understand why normal people find homosexuality repulsive? It's not an accident.
