The Nazi Pope, Benedict XVI (pictured at left saluting Hitler) , is continuing his anti-gay jihad this time working to interfere with the civil laws of Spain which has abandoned the 13th century level of knowledge and Thomist "natural law" so popular with the Pope and the other nasty, bitter old queens within the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy. In my view, if Benedict wants to restrict scientific/medical knowledge of sexual orientation to a 13th century level, he should be consistent and refuse any medical treatments not in vogue at that point in history. With any luck, we'd be rid of the old geezer in no time. I know that I am harsh with the Catholic Church, but I believe that in its current form and with its current leadership, it is in many ways a force for evil in the world today. Here are some highlights from the Washington Post's story on the Catholic Church's latest efforts to deprive segments of Spanish society from civil legal rights:
Hundreds of thousands of people attended a Mass in central Madrid on Sunday designed to promote traditional family values in a predominantly Roman Catholic country that has legalized gay marriage and made it easier for people to divorce. The service started with a message from Pope Benedict XVI, who urged Spanish Catholics to keep their families strong. . . . . The archbishop of Madrid, Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, added: "the future of humanity depends on the family, the Christian family."
Spain's Socialist government has angered the church by legalizing gay marriage, making it easy for people to divorce and instituting a public school course in which children learn about homosexuality and same-sex marriages. It is also considering easing Spain's restrictive abortion law.
A similar Mass and rally were held at this time last year in the same square, and organizers put attendance at well over a million. Then, bishops criticized the Spanish government over its social policies but this time there were no such remarks.
