I am the end of Nature.

Reason #2,761 why the Roman fucking Catholic fucking Church, and Xtianity in general, can kiss my anus:

Pope attacks blurring of gender.

Oh, and, obviously, the same applies to transphobic and homophobic pagan groups.

As I commented elsewhere... like my having sex with another woman is going to contribute to the destruction of the ozone layer. /sarcasm

Also, I must be lucky. I've yet to run into a pagan group that's homo/trans-phobic. Individuals, yes. Groups, no.

Gold plated shitweasel.

Anyway, perhaps he hate-spazzes so robustly due to happy stats like this:

"The fall - from the four million people who attend church at least once a month today - means that the Church of England, Catholicism and other denominations will become financially unviable."

Interesting and scary article. It mentions that Bible and Koran thumping denominations are increasing. I understand why the Roman Catholic Church is losing people. I am one of those who recently left it, to join the Episcopalian church, whose recent schism pretty much got rid of the more intransigent, bigoted leaders. I hope it does not bow to further pressure.

His shiny red Prada shoes.

Guy's an asshole, but I will admit he has killer taste.

(Oh, and in case the chick who once blasted me for using this icon on Cait's journal is still hanging around: It's a joke reference to a song you aren't old enough to remember. Grow the fuck up.)

There are transphobic and homophobic pagan groups?

I don't say that flippantly; rather in the same sense that I once said 'There are gay Republicans?'

Yes there are, and I was so shocked when I ran into one that I literally went back into the closet and hid for six more months before other pagans coaxed me out again.

Seriously, I should have known, human nature being what it is. But I was so shocked...that was when I was 20 and I honestly believed that pagan = a better person.

Older now, and I just shake my head sadly at people like that.

Considering how many genders trees have, I'm surprised he hasn't called a crusade against queer trees. "Save the Rainforest from eternal damnation!"

He's certainly confused enough in his priorities...

Speaking on Monday, Pope Benedict XVI warned that gender theory blurred the distinction between male and female and could thus lead to the "self-destruction" of the human race.

I think intolerance by control-freak religious zealots of any flavor is waaaay more likely to lead to the self-destruction of the human race.

Yeah, Darth Insidious over there is a bad joke, the kind that everyone needs to ignore. If we all close our eyes and wish hard enough, maybe he'll go away when he figures out no one cares.

Sadly, there are clearly plenty who still do. *sigh*

I couldn't read it. Errr, probably could, but wouldn't. I am really exhausted by the "I am better than you because" stuff.

You and yours have a wonderful holiday. Light a fire, bask.

My first thought when I read about this was, is anyone surprised? That's been the Church's policy for ages. And this Pope is as conservative as they come, so I did not expect to see a change.

The Roman Catholic Church is not going to change.

This is why I agree with Chris' idea that Catholics should march on the Vatican screaming "YOU SUCK!" While the hierarchy of evil old men has long been mired in a sea of hate, this shit does NOT represent the feelings of lay Catholics or many priests I have known. We stick around because we hope that, in some small way, we can take the Church back from them.

I as well am not surprised by this. The only thing is he may not live long and things will change with in the Church. Still I think it will be some time before this will happen. There are many other things that the Church should be looking at in there own house before they start in on other people!

Yes. The pope is an idiot. I hope this helps.

I wonder if we can set up re-education camps for homophobes.
