Pope condemns gay marriage as 'folly'

Nothing unexpected in this of course; this time his remarks are directed specifically at Canada to coincide with the visit to the Holy See of Bishops from that country.

It always perplexes me why people are expected to follow the dictates of the leader of a disfunctional cult which imposes celibacy on its personnel, male and female, and believes impeding one lot of people from being happy together (same sex couples) will somehow protect the institution of marriage for those unions it does condone. Not of course that all its personnel always observe the celibacy rule; why, some of them are notorious for their own abuse of vulnerable younger people who were exposed to their influence and whose misdemeanours were for years covered up by this self-same cult, until a torrent of revelations about it flouting of law finally forced it to clean up its act. The Pope's continued whining about the extension of full human rights to all citizens would be laughable were it not so poisonously destructive.
