Pope to save humanity *and* the rainforest. What a great guy!

December 23, 2008

Via BBC News:

Nobody expects the Spanish InquisitionPope Benedict XVI has said that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour is just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction.

He explained that defending God’s creation was not limited to saving the environment, but also protecting man from self-destruction.

[…]

Pope Benedict XVI warned that gender theory blurs the distinction between male and female and could thus lead to the “self-destruction” of the human race

So much FAIL in one man.

But pray tell us, Your Holiness, how, exactly, acknowledging that gender is a spectrum (not a binary) – how is that going to bring about the self-destruction of humanity? Because you seem a bit unclear about the practicalities. And – this is just a wild guess, mind – but your upholding of the gender binary will exempt you from that destruction, amirite? Yep, thought so.

Ach, you know what? I really can’t be bothered with you. You’re talking through your tiara. Now go, run along, I think there are some gay and lesbian Catholics would like a word with you. (Via AP)

…*sighs, shakes head*…

Special flouncy curtsey to the lovely Kate Bornstein for being more patient than I, well maybe not really – link here – and I’m sure others also have some interesting things to say.

And now for something completely different:

    Wait, no, some of the main reasons why he’s a tool include…

    Ah fuck it!

    One thing’s for sure, ‘surprise’ isn’t one of them. Still, about the most progressive thing his predecessor ever did was to approve of Pokemon. It’s not an office I generally expect to be occupied by guys who talk sense, with all due respect to any Catholics.
