Sexuality seems to be the new global pandemic. Both items on that agenda are sexually based. Not surprising, since a large portion of the world is motivated or otherwise stimulated pro/con by sexuality -from child dance routines to scantly clad post-op male/female models holding icy cold bottles of beer...
With everything going on...it seems difficult to place these two problems at the top. I'd say the oil spill in the gulf to those in the south, the volcano in iceland to people in that area. Tornado's in the mid-west. The economy.
It's just that I think he should stress more on subjects that have an impact regardless of belief. The catholic church is firm on abortion issues, but I disagree that this particular problem poses a threat to society, let alone homosexuality.
Living in times where our environment is being damaged beyond repair, and when there are weapons powerful enough to erase entire nations, it looks bad to me to speak so fervently on issues that aren't as important.
As someone who strives to "rile people up" I was wondering if this topic might do it. Good to see everyone has such a great sense of humor (it's critical when dealing with almost everything in life - in my opinion)
Do I think the Pope is putting homosexuals at the top of his "Hated it" list because the next statement that's coming out of him is about all homosexuals being pedophiles and them finding their way into his church to soil children in the rectory, you bet. Here's the deal, how about criminals or those who participate in criminal acts like the Pope? He assisted in shifting pedophile priests around in order to avoid scandal for the church and himself.
What would Jesus do? I think he'd fire the Pope and the rest of the religious leaders who make buckets of money as his agent and find a good Jewish gay to represent him instead!
Hey Cag: He's just the CEO of the richest, most powerful, capitalistic, theocratic corporation on earth....and ya know how ya get to be a CEO dont'cha? Yer better at bringing the big bucks into the system than anyone else. If ya've studied the evolution of catholicism, the purpose of all 21 ecumenical councils (from about 500 ad to about 1500 ad) was to insure the viability of the church. The history of popes has been disgustingly "evil." The pope is the best "crook" the "corporation" can produce. lolol :-)
When I was in Italy, everyone was saying that it was an open secret that Pope Benedict is gay and his secretary is his lover. It's not just a nasty rumor, its a like a ricky martin is gay rumor. so....pope benedict is not exactly credible.
It's pretty obvious that he's right. Both abortion and homosexuality will have an effect on the number of new little catholics. Fewer little catholics will have a negative effect on the world. In addition, homosexuality produces pedophiles, which eventually reduces the number of priests to preach against homosexuality. All quite simple, really!

Some believe the Papacy figures prominently in the Prophecies of Islam and Christianity - and that it plays a major role in end time events. What do you think about Catholicism and it's relevance to Prophecy?
