During a recent visit to Germany, Pope Benedict XVI asked Christians to unite in favor of marriage being limited to heterosexual couples. His opinions against LGBT rights are pretty well known, yet he deemed it necessary to use this as the reason to ask Christians to join together.
“Knowing, too, the value of family and marriage, we as Christians attach great importance to defending the integrity and the uniqueness of marriage between one man and one woman from any kind of misinterpretation,” he said, according to the Associated Press. “Here the common engagement of Christians, including many Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Christians, makes a valuable contribution to building up a society equipped for the future.”
This is frustrating.
That’s funny, because just last week I was telling people to unite against the Pope.
