Neues Altes vom Papst

Pope Benedict, in his first clear pronouncement on gay marriages since his election, on Monday condemned same-sex unions as fake and expressions of „anarchic freedom“ that threatened the future of the family.

The Pope, who was elected in April, also condemned divorce, artificial birth control, trial marriages and free-style unions, saying all of these practices were dangerous for the family.

„Today’s various forms of dissolution of marriage, free unions, trial marriages as well as the pseudo-matrimonies between people of the same sex are instead expressions of anarchic freedom which falsely tries to pass itself off as the true liberation of man,“ he said.


The Pope, who as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger headed the Vatican’s doctrinal department for more than two decades, said „pseudo freedoms“ such as gay marriages were based on what he called the „banalisation of the human body“ and of man himself

Eine deutsche Quelle habe ich leider nicht gefunden. Egal – zum Kopf schütteln reicht’s auch auf Englisch.

Und, was ich noch viel krasser finde: In London/Soho dürfen nun keine Regenbogenflaggen mehr hängen. Das ist ein wenig so, als würde man das in San Francisco verbieten. Die spinnen, die Briten.
