Okay time out, for a return to what the pope said. Whatever one wants to say about the Catholic Church, the last two popes have been consistent in the message of the value of "life".
In sum, life, every life, has great value.
Why? Because man is created in God's image and therefore has intrinsic value.
This is their message.
Now I realize saying this isn't going to settle anything on ATS, but I want to point out the consistency of the Pope's message. He is being consistent when he says that gay marriage is contrary to this view.
More importantly, because of the last two popes focus on the sancity of life, you will never find any quote from them bashing gays. It is the homosexual act that is being condemned (yes, I understand the contradiction with pedophilia scandals.)
Gays are are as precious and intrinsicly valuable as any other human beings.
Just want to clarify what I believe is being missed by some posters.

Because there out dated to you does not make them outdated forevery one. I for one am Not a catholic but, I think gays are vile disgusting creatures. BUT, since my god teaches me that it is not my place to decide another mans fate, but his and his alone, I leave that to him.... And if I am wrong oh well nothing happens... If I am right well lets say that Some of you wont be around for me to say I told you so=)
