The Pope recognizes evil

Here is news from the Vatican:
ROME (Reuters) - Homosexual marriages are part of "a new ideology of evil" that is insidiously threatening society, Pope John Paul says in a new book published Tuesday. ...

The 84-year-old Pontiff's book, a highly philosophical and intricate work on the nature of good and evil, is based on conversations with philosopher friends in 1993 and later with some of his aides. ...

"It is legitimate and necessary to ask oneself if this is not perhaps part of a new ideology of evil, perhaps more insidious and hidden, which attempts to pit human rights against the family and against man," he writes.
I'm glad someone is still willing to say that something is evil. American family courts do indeed pit human rights against the family and against man.

Mike sends another quote from a pro-homosexual magazine:
In a speech to foreign diplomats, Pope John Paul II gave opposition to pro-gay laws as one of his top priorities. “Today, the family is often threatened by social and cultural pressures which tend to undermine its stability,” said the pope. “But in some countries, the family is also threatened by legislation which — at times directly — challenge its natural structure which is and must be that of a union between a man and a woman.” He also said that the family structure “must never be undermined by laws based on a narrow and unnatural vision of man.”
I agree.

Update: Now Howard Dean says, "This is a struggle of good and evil."

Yikes, you scare me. The Pope (and you, for that matter) are out of touch. If anyone actually took the time to talk to a gay person instead of passing laws against them, they'd realize that there is nothing evil about any of it and that you are only afraid of the unknown.

Open your eyes and look around, bro. Nothing evil about being gay. It's something that just is...the way you like beets or chicken rather than carrots or beef.

And if you think it's all a choice, ask yourself, "Why would anyone CHOOSE to be discriminated against, ostracized and hated?" It doesn't make sense, right? Then you've answered your own question.
