Well this really made me laugh! The ex-Hitler Youth militant and reptilian possessed pope makes a desperate attempt to warn us all against gay marriage and cohabitation before marriage.

I have to say that I agree about the Gay marriage thing: it is absolutely sick! However, one thing I am learning is that marriage has been set up as a method to control humanity, and the Pope aint happy if you live together before you get married!!!

Will I go to hell if I live with my fiance' before I get married?

What a load of crap!!!!





Pope Benedict XVI has denounced gay marriage in a speech to US bishops visiting Vatican City.

The Pope warned of "powerful political and cultural currents seeking to alter the legal definition of marriage".

He also urged the bishops to emphasise to their Church that premarital sex and cohabitation was "gravely sinful" and "damaging to the stability of society".

You agree with the pope about same sex but not about something that applies to you? Do you realize how your views are sick? The fact that you can laugh at the pope for not allowing you to live with your fiance but then continue and say that same sex marriage is wrong is totally twisted. Typical christian, you are so fast to cast judgements for things that don't apply to you but the second somethings applied to you its laughable and appropriate to look the other way. You show us in your post that you have been brainwashed by religion and their views on whats moral and immoral by judging people who love each other and simply want to commit their lives together.

PS: I am not gay or religious.

Interesting you portray him as a nazi, yet those have always been the catholic views, so him sticking up for something his church has believed in for hundreds of years doesn't make him look bad. I'm not catholic, but I can understand a church who does not wish to change with the times, if God doesn't change, why would His church change?

chemistry,

Sodomy and fornication have always been grave sins in God's eyes.
It's been revealed. 2000 years now, we can know.

Your personal opinion or mine mean nothing. There's no "control" involved.

God gives you the free will, it's a gift to decide for the good or not.



"Nothing is more miserable than those people who never failed to attack their own salvation." St. John Chrysostom

Therein lies the problem... a perverted fixation with other peoples sex life. What they do in private is nobody elses business. How do you know that they're even having sex unless you're peeking through their window to check out all the action you claim to find objectionable.

Seriously, would it make any difference if they were both celibate? What about lesbians?

To my knowledge, no religion has ever been forced to marry same sex couples. The issue is legal recognition, something that should be based on equality rather than religious propaganda and irrational fear.

The man is a psychopath, along with all his sick 'bishop princes' and anyone that blindly follows this sick freak and any hateful cult/religion needs their head examined.

EDIT: OP is included for being just as clueless.

As strange as it sounds, maybe hes right. Im not sold on that as I have lived with 2 ex gfs and we had our own place together, but if it really was displeasing to God and I knew it for sure, I would do whatever he wanted me to. I dont believe in any 1 religion, and I respect others religions, so ive started trying to physically show that I respect those cultures/religions. I can talk respect all day, but when I start taking actions it proves it. And its funny, some of the practices are so close im knocking out 2-3 different religions/cultures in a single action.

EDIT- just realized the gay part was teh first point you made and I didnt even comment. They are OK with me. I dont judge like that. Its a conflict with the Bible, so thats why im not fully Christian. I have gay extended family as well as friends I grew up with in childhood that we all know are gay they just havent come out yet, and one of them is in the top best friends of my life. In fact, I tend to feel more comfortable around gays because they are a minority like me. They are all paranoid on people hating on them for being gay, so they are already untrusting in a sense, and im the same way, so its easy to find common ground.

Not being funny, but shoving your weener up another mans anus just aint right. As is being a receiver of 'swollen goods'.

This aint got nothing to do with religion.


Oh, it hasn't?


Funny...because religion is all about subjective beliefs what is "right" or not. You are not one inch better. Your posting is absurd.

Very few people listen to him outside of the Catholic church. Very few Catholics actually follow what he says. I am sure that, because he said this, there won't suddenly be waves and wave of people getting married instead of living together. *gasp .. wouldn't that be awful? People getting married? *


Seriously .. he hasn't said anything unexpected or to worry about. Now .. if someday he tells people to fly planes into buildings or to start chopping off the heads of non-Catholics .. THEN you can really get worried. In the mean time .. comfort yourself with the fact that very few people listen to him. I'm sure that'll make you feel better.

It may come as a shock to you but it is not only gay men that have anal sex. Do you object to heterosexual couples having it to ? Would you like to list the sexual activities that you find acceptable (the Catholic church still recommend the "missionary position" as the only way for married couples to have sex). What other people do in their bedrooms is no one else's business, having sex in a way you do not approve of does not make them disgusting, evil or bad and neither does living together or having sex before marriage. I know an 85 year old woman who tells younger women that sex before marriage is something she wishes she could have done and her favourite expression on the subject is "try before you buy".

The pope? Why would anyone listen to that sinner. Just look at the bent cross the fool holds in his hands. It looks Disgusting. Also homesexuality is a grave sin? No. open up them bibles and you will see there are only 10 grave sins and they are the commandments. The rest of the sins are minor.
