Pope on Gay Marriage: A Threat to Humanity, Peace and Justice!

by at . Comments

Pope Benedict XVI can expect some pissed off Tweets this week.

The head of the Roman Catholic Church said this week that gay marriage poses a threat to "justice and peace." He also called same-sex marriage "unnatural."

The 85-year-old Pontiff kicked off the Christmas season on Friday afternoon with the traditional lighting of the tree in Vatican City's St. Peter's Square.

There, he released the Pope's message for World Day of Peace 2013. In his annual address, he that same-sex marriage is "against human nature."

According to reports, he said the following:

"There is… a need to acknowledge and promote the natural structure of marriage as the union of a man and a woman in the face of attempts to make it juridically equivalent to radically different types of union."

"Such attempts actually harm and help to destabilize marriage, obscuring its specific nature and its indispensable role in society."

"These principles are not truths of faith, nor are they simply a corollary of the right to religious freedom. They are inscribed in human nature itself, accessible to reason and thus common to all humanity."

The Pope went on to suggest that support of gay marriage "constitutes an offense against the truth of the human person, with serious harm to justice and peace."

Pope Benedict XVI said abortion is also a threat to peace.

This is not the first time that Pope Benedict has vocally opposed same-sex marriage, having derided the idea as "insidious and dangerous" earlier this year.

Previously, he had called same-sex unions "a threat to humanity."

Do you support the right of gay couples to marry?

I felt that gay marriage is evil because it opposes the christian principles and the moral law of God.What if everyone around the world is practicing gay?Will human race exist?

I don't know how many times some people need to be told that gay marriage is an oxymoron. It is a heterosexual institution and would require a massive redefinition to accomodate gays, so much so that we would be talking about the abolition of marriage, not the extension of to homosexual partners.

Remember, there are and were many book to be placed in the man written bible and the new testament, there are many books that the current Pope at the time of the man written books that deleted books they did not like, there are many different versions of the bible and the new testament, there are many opinions and misinterpretations from both documents, religion is manmade and man maintained.

I don't see where anyone is trying to justify the killing of the perpertrator.He could'nt help it.Adultery is sin but it is a natural act.Two people of the same sex is not only sin but it is not natural and according to th bible that act is an abomination.Who's law are we to obey when they are contrary to each other..mans law or Gods Law?

Kelly, don't you ever underestimate the evil of homosexuality. The mind of the gay isn't different in any way from that of a drugs dealer, the terrorist or genocider. All these, in their quest to be heard, to profit, or receive satisfaction, choose to engage the most eccentric methods. Same sex isn't just sin - it's a crime against nature, humanity, civilization, and God.

I know too many fine people who are gay to agree with Charles. I've seen no proof that being gay is a choice anymore than the color of one's eyes or skin is a choice.
