Warning Italy's brand new left-of-center government that he intends to use
all the power the Vatican has at it's fingertips to kill any move to
recognize same-sex couples in Italy, Pope Benedict the (whatever)th
(previously the Cardinal known as Joseph Ratzinger), let loose yet another
in what has become a steady stream of papal denunciations of gay people,
civil rights laws that protect gay people, and especially any recognition
whatsoever of same sex unions.
"Only the foundation of complete and irrevocable love between man and woman
is capable of forming the basis of a society that becomes the home of all
men," says Ratzinger "confusing marriage with other types of weak love"
should be avoided.
And speaking of weak love...who was it again who said, "Love Thy Neighbor"...?
In other news last week, police in Bridgeport, Connecticut
arrested Two teenagers for beating of a fellow high school student,
presumably because they didn't have enough time to charge the other
dozen or so who were observed taking part in the kid's beating too. Rumors
about the beaten students' sexuality are said to have provoked ongoing tension
at Central. Students are saying the school is doing little to protect their
LGBT classmates. Weak Love.
