Why Homosexuals Want to Destroy the Catholic Church

The anything-goes crowd is fuming about the new Pope's recent description of same-sex "marriages" as "pseudo-matrimony". (Boston Globe, 6/7/05: "Pope says gay unions are false; Sees a weakening of marriage.")

''The various forms of the dissolution of matrimony today, like free unions, trial marriages and going up to pseudo-matrimonies by people of the same sex, are rather expressions of an anarchic freedom that wrongly passes for true freedom of man," he said.

Note that the Church's condemnation includes heterosexual unions outside of marriage. So how can Charles Martel (of the Mass. Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry) claim that, ''The pope is creating a dangerous climate of inciting hatred towards gays and lesbians, and needs to be held accountable in attempting to encourage civil societies to perpetuate this prejudice."

What nonsense! Is the Pope also creating a dangerous climate of hatred towards unmarried hetero couples engaging in sexual activity? We think not.

But it's no wonder the homosexuals targeted the Catholic Church decades ago. When you come across a solid doctrinal statement, as in the new Pope's writings while he was still Cardinal Ratzinger (and the Pope's doctrinal "enforcer"), you'll understand. He wrote in 2003:

''Allowing children to be adopted by persons living in such unions would actually mean doing violence to these children, in the sense that their condition of dependency would be used to place them in an environment that is not conducive to their full human development."

You don't have to be Catholic to appreciate what he signed onto in 1986:

''It is only in the marital relationship that the use of the sexual faculty can be morally good. A person engaging in homosexual behavior therefore acts immorally. ... This does not mean that homosexual persons are not often generous and giving of themselves, but when they engage in homosexual activity they confirm within themselves a disordered sexual inclination which is essentially self-indulgent."
