Those Crazy Catholics Are At It Again!

The Pope gave his end of year address to senior Vatican staff yesterday.

I'm not sure about you but I would think that a religious leader would probably say something like "Come on guys, let's be nice to each other. Peace and love and goodwill to all men."

er, no.

What his Popeship actually said was "that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour is just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction."

So, instead of celebrating Christmas and all having a nice time we should be ganging up on homosexuals.

Is this the correct stance from someone who is listened to by so many?

Personally I think that the Catholic church is one of the most evil organisations on the planet (second only to Sony) but a lot of people don't and I think that any Pope should have a more responsible attitude.

Let's just hope general members of the Catholic church have a slightly more enlightened way of thinking.

Anyway, the Pope wears a dress so he should be careful who he decided to persecute. :-)

Hi Briddon
I really enjoy the cathos because they give us so much to post about! I actually picked up this story and some others and even gave one a similar title to yours!

homosexuality is like any other sin in the church, he is not picking on anybody, he just happened to be speaking on this particular issue because of all the new homosexual rights and marriages. The Catholic Church, praise Jesus is not evil, people just don't take the time to even attempt to understand us and because we are the only Christian denomination that stands all as one, we are the easiest to pick on, never a truer statement. Please pray for me as I Will for you!

Personally, I believe that you should not judge the church from a skewed point of view that the media has influenced. Try and form an honest opinion. If you did actually form an honest opinion on the Catholic Church you would see something much different.
"Do you know - the Catholic Church educates 2.6 million students everyday at the cost to that Church of 10 billion dollars, and a savings on the other hand to the American taxpayer of 18 billion dollars. The graduates go on to graduate studies at the rate of 92%." This was from excerpts of an article written by non-Catholic Sam Miller - a prominent Cleveland Jewish businessman.
Take a look at the good of the church, and tell me how can you see evil in today's church? Yes, there are some bad moments in the Church's history, but the Catholic Church is not the same as it once was. It focuses on serving others and personal worship.
