Now that's something I never really paid a great deal of attention to, but I've seen both designations on different forms. So in which cases is it deliberate, and in which is it a lack of clarity or understanding?
JFTR, when the form queries sex, I always answer in the affirmative.
That's jiust it - he doesn't say it's bad... he says homosexuality is not a sin.
How nice of His Holiness to throw gays and lesbians a bone. But, he goes on to claim that homosexual acts are a sin. Why? Because one assumes that such acts occur out of wedlock? Well, golly gee, if those gay sinners were married, then said acts wouldn't be sinful at all! Oh wait... same sex marriage baaaaaaaaad. Oh well, painted into another corner. And judging by all the superlatives in your post, you sure seem to support the position.
Yet you label a call for understanding and tolerance "baloney" — all the while demanding retractions and dissociations from those who label you what such remarks only prove you to be — anti-gay!
2684-429 — that's your number, dude. We've all got it now.
No kidding. I thought this new pope would be a step backwards from the last one who gave the only good pope a heart attack but this is ridiculous. He is the dark ages. The bright side is that he will speed yet another organized religion into irrelevancy.
My question would be why isn't it irrelevant already? People actually listen to this guy? Creepy.
Unless one is Catholic, the Pope can babble all he likes and it amounts to nothing more than a Page 2 story. I suspect that you post the link to support your view that gay is bad ~ any Pope in a storm.
Stop and consider ~ a group of people don't hem and haw in the back ground of their social construct and arbitrarily assign prejudices to one another. They come to conclusions on an individual's bigotry or tolerance based on that individual's behavior over a period of time.
OK, rather than beat around your bush, the majority believe you to be homophobic because you've come off that way for a very long time. It's not as though there's been some kind of conspiracy to label you so. poly is an avowed and often rabid atheist, matt is a devoted, often delusional conservative and your are homophobic.
That you deny it so strenuously is especially laughable in light on the original subject of this post and your support of the Pope's views on the issue. Please note my civility. I do not want the Moderators involved in my response to you again.

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.
What do you mean "debunks". He doesn't do that at all. What he does is give his opinion based on his religious thinking. While I might tend to agree with some of what he says, he certainly is not an authority that I give a single credence to. Just a guy selected by a bunch of people to be the head of their group. Not my group so what he says is nothing to me.
To say he "debunks" something is to say he disproves something and he just is giving his opinion. Again, not important to me at all
