Pope Benedict scored a double hit with just one shot in his end of year address at the Vatican when he blew wide open the fallacy of 'gender theory' whilst demolishing the US led 'tolerance' baloney that supports it. The only thing he didn't do is nail the intolerant backlash that will inevitably follow.
The issue is very marginally about same sex relations. It's about the identity of gender and sex. We're usually very lazy in talking about gender and sex, so that even in filling out forms we're asked to declare what our gender is, when the form no doubt means us to denote our sex. Sex is hardware and gender is software; sex is our plumbing, indoor or outdoor, and gender is what we do with it--and I should say that even the hardware/plumbing is sometimes quite ambiguous.
At any rate, if gender and sex were identical, then it would be impossible to say that someone is a feminine man or a masculine woman--and again, the categories have nothing to do with sexual preference. Equally absurdly it would mean that the behavior of men and women across history and cultures is always identical. His holiness the pope is setting out to deny the findings of social science for the last hundred years or so. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but the article gives no evidence for why one would want to do such a thing.

Again thats what I would expect the Pope to say - nothing new.
I take your point - it would be nice after some of the irrelevant dog poo we've been subjected to in the thread. But first of all it would be nice to have a retraction of the outrageous slur in the thread title which I'm demanding be withdrawn as unsubstantiated, false and malicious.
