Pope attacks blurring of gender

Pope Sidious as a friend of mine called him aka Pope Benedict XVI, has said that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour is just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction.




http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/7796663.stm

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

The Pope was delivering his end-of-year address to senior Vatican staff.

His words, later released to the media, emphasised his rejection of gender theory.

Speaking on Monday, Pope Benedict XVI warned that gender theory blurred the distinction between male and female and could thus lead to the "self-destruction" of the human race.

Gender theory explores sexual orientation, the roles assigned by society to individuals according to their gender, and how people perceive their biological identity.

Gay and transsexual groups, particularly in the United States, promote it as a key to understanding and tolerance, but the Pope disagreed.

When the Roman Catholic Church defends God's Creation, "it does not only defend the earth, water and the air... but (it) also protects man from his own destruction," he said.

"Rainforests deserve, yes, our protection, but the human being ... does not deserve it less," the pontiff said.

It is not "out-of-date metaphysics" to "speak of human nature as 'man' or woman'", he told scores of prelates gathered in the Vatican's sumptuous Clementine Hall.

"We need something like human ecology, meant in the right way."

The Catholic Church opposes gay marriage. It teaches that while homosexuality is not sinful, homosexual acts are.

Rev Sharon Ferguson, chief executive of Britain's Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement, described the Pope's remarks as "totally irresponsible and unacceptable".

"When you have religious leaders like that making that sort of statement then followers feel they are justified in behaving in an aggressive and violent way," she said.

The pope uses his traditional end-of-year speech to offer his Christmas greetings and say a few words about what he considers the important issues of the day.

This year, Pope Benedict also deplored the tendency to depict the Catholic church's World Youth Day, which he attended in Sydney earlier this year, as mere spectacle.

He stressed that the event should not be considered a "variant of modern youth culture, as a kind of ecclesiastical rock festival with the Pope as the star," but as the fruition of a "long exterior and interior path".

Shouldn't robots have the same right as humans to have gender and express their sexuality?

I think your friend is wrong. Sidious was portrayed as unscrupulous, powerful and smart (a worthy adversary).

Given the RCCs role - along with Muslim and Hindu beliefs, in driving population growth to a point where we have at least 3 and at this point likely 12 or 13 times the sustainable population, I'd say man, ably assisted by religion, has already self-destructed, and it had nothing to do with the GLBT community who tend to reduce population pressure rather than increasing it (even when they are RC priests enjoying their traditional access to altar boys).

While powerful, Benedict and his advisers appear too stupid to see what is coming, let alone recognizing their role in creating this situation or the need to prepare their flocks for the coming slaughter.

From this it follows that while Benedict may be powerful, and is undoubtedly an unscrupulous hypocrite or would not be where he is today, he is no Sidius.

Kindest Regards

Yep, unlike the Pope (past and present) and the Jedhi, Darth Sidious and the other Sith never lied...
