The new Pope is just as reactionary as the last one

In an unsurprising move, Pope Benedict XVI has condemned same-sex unions. Fair enough - if people who actually believe the nonsense he preaches wish to follow his injunctions, good luck to them. However, we luckily do not live in a theocratic state so can safely ignore this antedeluvian nonsense - and the law authorising same-sex unions in the UK is scheduled to take effect toward the end of this year. The Roman Catholic Church is not the only 'cult' to promlgate such views of course - my remarks are aimed equally at other cults which share similar beliefs in this matter. The Pope is free to express his views, but they really have no relevance to the society I live in - so shove off, Papa!
