Gay Marriage: The Vatican Fights Back!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitikWedding Waltz

vatican-opposes-gay-marriage-fight.jpg

Shocker! Surprise!

The Vatican is pissed that last week's US presidential election caused the approval of gay marriage in three states, and is now vowing to use it's power of prayer political and social influence to fight BACK against… um… people legally expressing their love we guess!

Father Federico Lombardi, the Vatican's chief spokesman, expressed on Vatican Radio:

"It is clear that in Western countries there is a widespread tendency to modify the classic vision of marriage between a man and woman, or rather to try to give it up, erasing its specific and privileged legal recognition compared to other forms of union… The Church is the only institution to say that, while persecuting homosexuals in undoubtedly unjust, opposing marriage between people of the same sex is a point of view that must be respected."

Alright, fair enough, Mr. Lombardi, we agree that religious belief of any sort should be respected… but that doesn't mean EVERYONE has to agree with it or support it!

And it's obvious that there is a new shift toward the acceptance of gay marriage, as Spain recenly rejected an appeal to their law allowing same sex marriage, and France is currently considering their own law concerning its legalization!

We just can't wait to see how this issue will soon be handled in the US Supreme Court… will the federal government finally recognize the rights of same sex couples who wish to legally bond their love forever (or until divorce)?!

Well, we know the Vatican is hoping that their God will surely prevent this blasphemy… although why their God didn't just stop the votes from happening, or from people from being gay in the first place, is a logical question we'd like Mr. Federico Lombardi to answer!

    Nobody asked for their opinion, most Western countries have a separation of church & state anyway, our forefathers made sure of that because the Church is archaic and unjust :P .

    What you just wrote makes no sense, 'Alright, fair enough, Mr. Lombardi, we agree that religious belief of any sort should be respected… but that doesn't mean EVERYONE has to agree with it or support it!'
    If you really did respect his opinion, why are you calling him out in an attempt to put him down?

    They never said you had to a agree with it, just that their p.o.v. should be respected.

    and are you serious when you right that he should answer as to "Why" God didn't stop the votes from happening? just because he didn't stop it (instantly as your suggesting) doesn't mean its not wrong

    DISGUSTING!!!! These homos are trying to have a real family like mine and it makes me sick! Marriage is between a white man and a white woman! It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Shaniqua, people!!!! A child needs a mother and a father, it's just that simple. Single moms should have their kids taken away and put into the foster care system where they will be better off!!! At my book burning the other day I saw a white man and a negress taking their kid into church across the street and I was DISGUSTED that they would bring that kind of perversion into church!! This country is in dire need of a wake up call or it seems like EVERYONE will be equal. And who wants that?

    IM SORRY BUT THE VATICAN HAS RUINED THE CATHOLIC RELIGION FOR ANYONE THAT IS CATHOLIC…. THEY HAVE HUMILIATED THE CATHOLIC CHURCH BY IT'S OWN LIES AND THEY'RE OWN DECIEVING WAYS….
    WHY DON'T THEY TAKE ALL THAT MONEY THEY'RE SITTING ON AND FEED THE POOR LIKE GOD INTENDED, INSTEAD THESE SO CALLED PRIEST SHIT ON GOLD TOILETS AND LIVE IN CASTLES WHICH IS THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT GOD WANTED THEM TO DO…
    LIKE ANYONE GIVES A SHIT ANYMORE ABOUT WHAT THEY THINK OR HAVE TO SAY ABOUT ANYTHING…
    NO ONE LOOKS UP TO THEM ANYMORE
    THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING BUT MAKE GOD LOOK BAD TO ALLOT OF PEOPLE AND HAVE MADE ALLOT OF PEOPLE LOOSE FAITH IN HIM, THEY NEED TO STOP BEFORE THEY CAUSE ANYMORE DAMAGE…
    IT'S OBVIOUS THAT EVEN THEY HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH GOD
    I JUST WISH THEY WOULD STOP TRYING TO PLAY GOD !!!!!

    Opposing same-sex marriage is not just their point of view, it is their political position than they are trying to enact into law that effects everyone, not just their followers. They want state sanctioned oppression and discrimination. If they were to limit their so-called point of view to their own congregations - that I could respect, but when they try to inflict their position on everyone, they no longer deserve respect.

    The bible is clear on this issue and marriage is an institution from the bible. Why can't gays call their union somehting else? Why must they try to force their position on everyone else? Are many of your Christian haters?
    BTW, Valentina, read the history of separation of church and state. It was so citizens could practice their religions with governmental interference.
    Perez, we all have free will. That is the purpose of this life — for you to make your own path. Christians don't believe that God makes those decisions for you.
    I am not a holy roller, but I pray for you Perez. You are one angry little dude.

    After all that has happened in the Roman Catholic faith in years past, they really have no right to preach anything. Clean up their own house first before they start messing in someone else's life. The divorce rate alone says very little for the sanctity of marriage…and I am talking about the "between a man and a woman" marriage.

    Re: travus212 – Adam and Eve? Really? You want THEM as role models? OK. Adam and Eve had two children: Cain and Abel. But where did their children come from given that Eve was the only woman around? And their children? Pretty sick to me. Stop trying to force your religion on others.



  19. 19

    Canada has had equal marriage for all for almost 10 years now. The Catholic Church tried to throw its weight around, even threatening to excommunicate our Prime Minister. But it came to nothing. Everyone ignored them. What authority does the Catholic Church have given how many children were abused and they did nothing? If they want a say in what laws are made, then they should pay taxes like everyone else.



  20. 20

    Given that a typical heterosexual marriage consists of pregnancy, abortion, pregnancy, abortion, pregnancy, marriage. abuse of spouse and children, neglect of children, cheating, then divorce and REPEAT, heterosexuals should worry about themselves.

    They're just pissed because they won't be able to fondle as many little boys now.

    Should really revoke their tax exempt status, since the Catholic Church is acting like a political institution. If you don't like American laws leave our country and please move to the Vatican. There, you can have all the pedophilia and "legitimate rape babies" that you want.

  26. Chrissy says – reply to this


    26

    I think people are missing the point of WHY "THE CHURCH" has such an issue with gay marriage. The government did not create or come up with "Marriage". It was around long before government existed. It was created by God, first documented in the bible. This was a "relgious and spiritual" event that God created. So when it's firmly documented in the bible that homosexuality is not only a sin,.. but an abomination,.. it angers "THE CHURCH" that homosexuals want gay MARRIAGE. They have no problem with Civil Unions,… Created by the government. But when you take something that is a soloumn vow and gift given by God and use it in the same context that God Deemed detestable… well.. it messes with a lot of emotions. I'm not here to say what is right and wrong… just trying to give a different perspective of WHY.

    Uh, nice hat.

    The Catholic church is in the dark ages! They can have all the little boys they want, but I can't marry the man I have been with for 11 years!?!?!? Fuck the POPE! It's only a matter of time! People are recognizing the church for what it really is. Nothing but HATRED!



  29. 29

    Re: Chrissy – Sorry, marriage predates the church. Almost all pre-Christian cultures had marriage. It was not spiritual so much as economic.



  30. 30

    Re: Mary – We must force our position because we want EQUAL RIGHTS! When a priest can grant a divorce, then they can tell us who to marry! Marriage is a CIVIL ISSUE! Civil Unions are equal but separate! Get it?

    Everyone at the Vatican are a bunch of child fuckers anyway or has the world forgot about that. The Vatican has been hiding child molestation allegations for years and punishing or paying off the children who told on them or plan on telling. The Pope literally says that "Rape Isn't bad it happen back in the day." Who the fuck says that. So before the Vatican start on the gays they should get there shit together before they do anything else.

    Why priests who can not get married have to put their 2¢ in about marriage? Marriage is about the public declaration of love between two human beings. How can that be wrong? I pray for all who think it is wrong.

    1 Corinthians 13
    New King James Version (NKJV)
    The Greatest Gift

    13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, it profits me nothing

    13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

    This is a prime example as to why our forefathers decided to keep government and church separate. The Church thinks that what they say is the end of all and should be done to an exact T. It has been like that since the founding year of the Vatican/Religion. They should take a hint from all the dead AND dieing regions.. Don't try to control your people to a point where they lose free will and free thinking. The tight grip is what is driving more and more people to lose faith in the first place. I respect ALL religions but I do not respect anyone that says that the general population is wrong for coming together and making a decision. I live in Maryland, it passed here and I am proud of it and proud of all the Marylanders that made the conscious decision to Vote Yes on Prop 6!

    Re: Chrissy – Chrissy I'm sorry to say but you are 100% wrong. The bible isn't very old and there are many religions and people who predate that. Actually in ancient greece around 2000 BC it was normal in their society for men to be with men and women to be with women. Men felt like women were a weak companion and in no way were worthy of them, but they were well aware that they needed to procreate to keep their civilization strong, so men would marry, impregnate their wives but would stay with their male partner. Greek males in ancient greece found other men were their equal, and women would never compare, women were weak and were meant to have children and that was all. Men would go to battle together. Women would have the same companionship with women and they raised their children together and often be in sexual relationships with one another. Now this predates the bible, and the christian god. Also in your beloved bible women would have to marry their rapist if they were raped the father would trade them for farm animals and if a women was found to not be a virgin she would be stoned to death.

    Re: Mary – It doesn't matter what word you put on it and that's not going to make a difference. These people want to get married and they want to do it in a church because despite what you may think some are catholic and some are christian, and you have no idea how much it hurts them that their religion hates them for something that they are, it's not something that they chose. Actually the separation of church and state also applies to the church not interfering with the govt and marriage and the word itself has been around far longer than christianity. Being gay is not a decision it's just how it is, & they're a lot of people out there that kill themselves because they can't help the way they feel and people like you shun them. The bible isn't clear on marriage as an institution. The bible will make a woman marry her rapist b/c she is no longer a virgin, the bible says that your parents can marry you off for livestock, the bible says if you're not a virgin when married you will be stoned to death. Oh yes what a good institution you have going there.

    Re: Mary – People tend to dislike christianity more than others b/c christianity is responsible for the dark ages, for women's right issues, for millions of deaths, for ostracizing people for doing the right thing or believing something different. Do you realize that the church use to think that the left hand was the devil's hand and anyone who wrote with their left hand was being controlled by the devil? Most importantly people rag on christianity the most because here in the western world we speak mainly english and it's pushed it's way to be the most dominant religion in the western world. Do you know how much christianity has held the world back? Women die from childbirth in Africa b/c the African cardinals won't allow birth control, & their children die b/c they can barely stay alive themselves yet men will rape them making them pregnant and they're not even allowed to stop that life from coming into a world of starvation and suffering. Not to mention how far it's held the world back just in scientific discovery alone. If it wasn't for the church we would be far more advanced and there would be a lot less hate and ignorance.

    Re: barb – If marriage was originally between same sexes & data was collected, you would probably see the same results.

    Since the only main data collected for statistically analysis is between men & women you cannot say "The divorce rate alone says very little for the sanctity of marriage…and I am talking about the "between a man and a woman" marriage". because you have nothing to compare it too…The divorce rate (yes is high) but that doesn't mean anything in comparisons to gay marriages, it'd probably be the same if not worst.

    @travus212 you are absolutley fucking disgusting with the words that you just wrote. you are rascist and very ignorant. i can't belive the nerve of you to be saying that its disgusting for people to marry interraciallyand same sex marriage. everyone needs to be equal. everyone has the right to marry who they want. regardless their race or gender. the church system isnt so great, these preists think its not okay for males to marry eachother and females to marry eachother but they can molest children? and thats okay apparently !!!!!!!!!! at least all gay people want is the right to get married. GOD MADE THEM THAT WAY AND HE LOVES THEM JUST AS THEY ARE. please keep your gross comments to yourself because i'm absoutley disgusted that someone in 2012 can actually speak like that. I'd like to know what kind of parents you had. someone should have slapped some sense into them a long time ago and someone should slap some sense into you because you are the most ignorant person ever. god i hope you don't have kids because if they grow up with views like you have they will need a good wake up call once they start getting the shit kicked out of them

    The Catholic Church must be so proud. What a worthwhile cause from the defenders and protectors of institutional pedophilia. They are on an international mission to make life Hell for gay people.

    Sorry, but why are we bestowing any credibility on the people who perpetrated the Inquisition….who were silent in the face of the Holocaust….who to this day in Africa, help to kill countless more 'heterosexuals' from AIDS, because they discourage the distribution of condoms? The Church has no moral authority on anything.

    I will take it one step further. The Roman Catholic church, and their leader, the Hitler youth Pope, are all about maintaining power and influence, controlling others, and the acquisition of money. End of story.

    They are the last people that should be holding forth on what is moral.

    FFFS. I am so sick of gay marriage. Being gay myself I know damn well that I don't want marriage. It is religious. Religion is for simple minded people. What we NEED is a civil union with all the legal goodness of a marriage. Wouldn't that make it easier?
