  1. Tolerance breeds tolerance, hate breeds hate. Why should gays tolerate a man that has made it pretty clear he doesn’t like us? If he can preach against us, why should we accept being told to keep quiet and no answer back?

  2. People should challenge this ignorant Pope at every opportunity. He’s made it his mission to stuff homosexuals back into the cellar and have what rights we’ve earned retracted. Show zero respect for this homosexual hater.

    Dear Marc,The man pictured on the left (wearing a fabulous vintage chiffon-lined Dior gold lamé gown over a silk Vera Wang empire waist tulle cocktail dress, accessorized with a 3-foot beaded peaked House of Whoville hat, and the ruby slippers Judy Garland wore in the Wizard of Oz) is worried that The Da Vinci Code might make the Roman Catholic Church look foolish.On a a more serious note, those citizens of the EU might like to read the attached letter which is being sent to my MEP and follow likewise with thier own political representatives.Subject: European Laws on Civil Liberty, Justice, and Human rights Dear Sir,In recent press releases to the UK and European readership we have seen positive coded encouragement of the political, economic, emotional, psychological, and spiritual persecution of homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgender citizens of the European Union member states by a Mr Joseph Alois Ratzinger, date of birth 16th April 1927, Bavaria, Germany. Current address: The Vatican, Vatican City, Rome.My point is very straightforward, this man is abusing his role as as a Priest in Holy Orders and a leading member of both the European and Global Society. His performance history of Hitler Youth membership and his extremist politics are being implemented by coded word as he and his senior representatives deliver hate crimes against the citizens of the EU society falsely in the name of a Christian God and a Holy Spirit.As a citizen of the UK and of the EU, I formally request that this man be returned to his homeland and lawfully silenced from propagating such hate crimes against our society. If Germany will not comply with the control of this citizen, then the man should be tried by a court of multi faith, agnostic and atheist bench members for review of his current actions and subsequently imprisoned in total isolation for his communications which are clearly aimed at triggering oppressive and violent acts against these minority communities.His employing organisation communicate this man’s words by a number of methods which all come under directives and laws governing the EU, broadcasting, printed matter, etc. and as such should be signal blocked and terminated. As these operate from Vatican city, then the action of control shall be enacted by our sister EU state member – Italy.Citizens if the EU and other countries have already seen such religious fanatical leaders being tried for propagation of hate crimes. This man does not have any rights to perform acts using coded words or otherwise and shall be subjected to the same EU and International laws.Name and contact details supplied…

    The Pope is Christ’s vicar on earth, no matter if he is German, Italian, Polish or Chinese. To be honest, what the gay community really fights against is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and the views He expressed. Pope Benedict only reinterates His teaching that humans aren’t made to have sex with their own gender. It is only posturing to yell at Ratzinger. The gay community is really angry about this teaching of God, since it attacks their idea that perverted sex is okay (perverted in the sense of misusing or distorting a thing’s real purpose). The real purpose of sex is procreating a new human being, something impossible to homosexuality, hence it’s moral problem: the misuse of the body’s true purpose.
