And it’s the pope.
Pope Benedict said on Monday that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behavior was just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction.
Whenever the Vatican makes it into the news, it tends to relate to some silly, absurd facet of their beliefs, and yet for some reason, Roman Catholicism still manages to boast the largest numbers of any religious sect.
Edit: A commenter pointed out that there was some sloppy reporting on this issue and the BBC’s article on the same subject had a note posted a day after my original post:
This article has been amended to make it clear the Pope made no direct reference to homosexuals or transsexuals.
That said, while, if I am to take the BBC’s amendment at face value (Reuters made no such correction), that does not mean that the pope is correct on this issue and I suspect that the Church’s undue focus on sexuality is far more harmful than those who “blur the distinction between males and females”.
