I've been contemplating ending this blog. Well, if the loving religious Catholic people in Britain are to be believed, if same sex marriage enters into law, the world will crack in two and therefore my blog will be irrelevant. A few comments in recent days from the British Catholic leadership on same-sex marriage:
"would reduce the significance of marriage"
"shame the United Kingdom in the eyes of the world"
These are simply stupid statements and make no sense at all. I can see that, in say 20 years, people will look back at the comments made by Catholic leaders and actually laugh. One day they will be seen as the ludicrous statements that they clearly are. Marriage is all about love and it existed long before modern "made up" religions, so why would it be devalued for man/woman combinations if they were some man/man or woman/woman marriages? Think about it... marriage isn't going to be devalued by a tiny percentage being gay ones. The straight couples are never going to think "there's no point getting married as it's been devalued by those gay people who clearly just want to get married for the tax benefits (HA!)".
They insist that marriage is purely for "the procreation and education of offspring". I assume that the Catholic guys will be advocating fines and imprisonment for couples that do not make babies. I'm all for that!
The Pope is against gay marriage completely - he sees it as:
"damaging to the stability of society"
What a fool. But I have no respect for the man anyway, let's not forget that the current Pope once wrote to all Bishops around the world insisting that they cover up any pedophile crimes by their Priests or risk being excommunicated. What nice people these religious types are.
