No Pope Ratzinger, you're wrong

In a moderately homophobic article, titled “Gay ‘marriages’ to be allowed in church“, the UK Telegraph discusses the impending protests of religious groups in the United Kingdom when proposed legislation allowing same-sex couples to marry in churches passes.

The Telegraph goes on to say:

Pope Benedict said same-sex marriage was among the “most insidious and dangerous challenges that today confront the common good.”

Really? So allowing people who love each other – regardless of their gender and the gender of their partner – express that love by marrying is an insidious and dangerous challenge to the common good?

Dear Pope Ratzinger: you’re a dirty, filthy pig. In fact, that’s insulting to pigs. I had a pet pig once as a kid. It was loving and kind and friendly. You have none of those attributes. You head an organisation that for years has shielded pedophiles who bugger and molest children. Actively shielded pedophiles. You are an affront to decency and morality with your claims that:

“In the 1970s, pedophilia was theorized as something fully in conformity with man and even with children,” the Pope said.

“It was maintained — even within the realm of Catholic theology — that there is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is only a ‘better than’ and a ‘worse than’. Nothing is good or bad in itself.”

So child buggering is not “good or bad”, because “nothing is good or bad”, but … oh shit, men marrying men, or women marrying women … that’s against “the common good”?

Fuck you Ratzinger.
