Vatican Declares Gay Marriage Holy War, Forms Worldwide Religions Coalition


A top Vatican representative and Roman Catholic Archbishop is reaching out to form a coalition with other religions and has called on them to join the Vatican in a worldwide holy war against same-sex marriage, claiming that proliferation of equality “is not a good thing for society,” and will lead to “confusion.”

“I wonder if we shouldn’t ask for and look for more support among other Christian confessions and indeed, persons of other faiths,” Archbishop Antonio Mennini, who represents Pope Benedict XVI and the Vatican in Great Britain, said in an address to Catholic bishops from England and Wales.

“It seems to me that, concerning the institution of marriage, and indeed the sanctity of human life, we have much in common with the position of the Jewish community, the Chief Rabbi and many of the more significant representatives of Islam,” Mennini added.

Mennini, 64, was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI to Great Britain 2010, and also served the Pope in Russia, Uzbekistan, and Bulgaria. He speaks Italian, English, French, Spanish, German, Bulgarian, and Russian. (The image above shows Archbishop Mennini with Valdimir Putin in 2003.) .................(more)

20. It Is A Paraphrase Of Mr. Mencken, Sir: I Cannot Claim Originality With It

He said something once to the effect that competence was all he admired, and only competent people would be worth the oil it would take....

5. Weird when you consider that most of the children they raped were of the same sex...

 

..."the sanctity of human life"? Really Archie? Did you think that when your criminal organisation was covering up the rape of innocent children across the planet?

You, your Gucci-wearing, ex-nazi boss, and your ENTIRE criminal enterprise have NO MORAL AUTHORITY to speak on ANYTHING WHATSOEVER...

6. From the comments ...

a petition at www.change.org entitled "Withdraw U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See", calling on the President and Secretary of State Clinton to make good on the declaration made on behalf of the US Government last month in front of the UN in support of LGBT rights, by withdrawing the US Ambassador to the Holy See in diplomatic protest.

If you agree, please sign and spread word of the petition. An email is automatically sent to the press office of the State Department each time a signature is added.

14. I declare holy war on all religions

 

because people does not need religion to dictate their lives.

I left my religion a long time ago. I respect it, but won't practice it.

Pope Ratzinger will have to find something to do besides attacking women and GBLTQI YET again. Can't this guy hurry up and die already?

17. I hate to quote a monster like Stalin

 

but this does suggest Uncle Joe's (not DU's Uncle Joe) famous supposed remark "Fuck the pope; how many divisions does he have?"

Organized Xtianity has stood foursquare against virtually all of the ethical progress the world has made in the last millennium. This will not end well for what Charles Pierce refers to as The Clan of the Red Beanie.

19. This filthy organization is just angry that they can no longer use violence

to stop progress, so they are reaching out to all the other kooks in hopes of getting someone to "assist" them. Interesting.
Perhaps it is time to pull the US Ambassador to the Holy See. After all, the US has no Ambassador to Iran.
