[LGBT]Again, for Same-Sex Marriage.

“When I was in the military they gave me a medal for killing two men and a discharge for loving one.” ~Epitaph of Leonard P. Matlovich, 1988

Pope Benedict XVI is the 265th and current Pope, by virtue of his office of Bishop of Rome, the Sovereign of the Vatican City State and the leader of the Catholic Church.

Recently, I heard from the news that the Pope claimed that gay marriage is a threat to the future of humanity. According to Reuters, Pope Benedict said on Monday that gay marriage was one of several threats to the traditional family that undermined “the future of humanity itself”. He said that children need proper “settings” and that ‘pride of place goes to the family, based on the marriage of a man and a woman.’ He also said that, Policies which undermine the family threaten human dignity and the future of humanity itself.

While reading several articles regarding this matter, I was thinking along the lines of, “Of course, the church wouldn’t approve…” but I was also thinking, “But, why wouldn’t they?” Because, as I would have probably said for the nth time, the bible (The diary of saints from a long time ago — which became our unofficial rule book today) doesn’t have anything to say against gay-marriage or same-sex relationships. So, if it’s not written… it’s a crime? A sin?

The Roman Catholic Church, which has some 1.3 billion members worldwide, teaches that while homosexual tendencies are not sinful, homosexual acts are, and that children should grow up in a traditional family with a mother and a father.

What’s difficult about having some 1.3 billion members worldwide is, you can only control some of them fully, the rest have the capacity to weight our options. I am a Roman Catholic according to my Birth and Baptismal certificate and I live as one (but I’m not a religion-freak as some might call them.)

I blogged about same-sex marriage before and how people who are in such a relationship should be patient and be more considerate of the Judgmental World that we’re living in. In my other blog post, I cheered for the “closet” LGBTs. In this blog post, I will stand for the LGBTs once again in saying, The LGBT community is awesome!

Cesar Apolinario is a journalist here in the Philippines, here he quoted Archbishop Oscar Cruz.

The only difference between a married man and woman and a same-sex married couple is, the first can make a child — the latter, no matter how much they tried, cannot. My friends’ sister has a relationship with another woman and they’re raising a child on their own — and they never looked happier. This is another population problem. If the people who are in same-sex marriage couldn’t give birth to any children, then the population would decrease — which is the Catholics unannounced problem as well in passing the Reproductive Health Bill here in the Philippines. Seriously, what is it with the church and having the population growth (or explosion) problem solved?

What I’ve been trying to say all this time is, even if the Catholic Church approved of Same-Sex marriage, it’s not like everyone would do it. Everybody would be happy for everybody — doesn’t that sound better?

I’ll post here the two responses from the netizens for the Gay marriage is a threat to humanity, claims Pope article because I couldn’t have said it better. 🙂


To end this blog post, I’ll leave you with a quote from Francis Maude, a British Politician.

“It always seemed to me a bit pointless to disapprove of homosexuality. It’s like disapproving of rain.” ~Francis Maude
