Pope Benedict Comes Out as Gay

Feb 28, 2013

popesPope Benedict XVI announced today that he has resigned his papacy because he is gay and "could no longer live a lie."

In a statement released to Italian news media the 85-year-old departing pontiff says he is relieved to be coming out after eight decades in the closet and urged the Catholic Church and other faiths to accept homosexuality as a natural part of God's creation.

"Like many gay Catholics, I have been forced for too long to choose between my faith and my identity," the statement reads. "My profound love for my beloved church compelled me to lie to myself and to my fellow believers about a basic component of my humanity.

"I deeply regret that deception. I have not been honest with the Church, and for that reason I decided that I could not continue my role as leader of the world's one billion Catholics.

"Now that I have been liberated of this secret, I wish to express my belief that homosexuals are equal in the eyes of God. I beseech the Catholic Church to reconsider its ban on gay clergy and become a leading force in the struggle for gay rights."

Gay the Pray Away

Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation on Feb. 11, becoming the first pontiff since the Middle Ages to resign his post. His stated reason was to retire before the ravages of old age left him unable to complete his duties.

Yet rumors have been swirling in Rome since the announcement that the decision instead had something to do with homosexuality at the Church's highest levels.

There have been newspaper reports of a secret "gay conclave" within the Vatican that visited local prostitutes and was thereafter blackmailed.

But there has been no indication that the scandal touched the pope himself, and today's news has come as a surprise to most following the story.

Benedict resigns his papacy today, and will technically cease his duties as pope at 8 p.m. Central European Time. It had been anticipated that he would continue on as a "Pope Emeritus," but given the Church's ban on homosexuality his future role is now unclear.

Say it Ain't So Joe

Reaction to the Pope's statement has ranged from shock to excitement to despair. Some conservative figures in the Catholic Church have even expressed outrage at the move, suggesting Benedict should have remained in the closet.

"Look everyone knows that the only people who sign up for a lifetime of living in all-male dormitories with no possibility of marriage are gay men," says Phyllis Gates, a conservative Catholic blogger. "But why did he have to actually say it? Denial was working so well for us."

However for Rick Santorum, one of America's most prominent anti-gay Catholic politicians, denial is still alive and well.

"I don't believe him," Santorum says from his home in Washington, D.C. "Homosexual activists have clearly compromised Pope Benedict through blackmail or brainwashing or some sort of queer subterfuge.

"He's not gay. He can't be gay. That's just not possible. He's just pretending for some reason. And it's my job to figure out what that reason is."

Pride and Joy

While Santorum is looking for evidence of a gay conspiracy, however, LGBT activists are celebrating the Pope's pro-gay rights message.

"It's heartening to see a leading person in the Catholic Church finally take a stand for equality," says Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign. "The church has hitherto been one of the most powerful anti-gay rights organizations in the world.

"Although it's a shame that he was forced out because of his orientation, we're all hoping that Pope Benedict's words of tolerance will resonate with people of faith around the world."

Gay Catholic blogger Andrew Sullivan, who speculated yesterday about a homosexual relationship between Pope Benedict and his personal aide, was phlegmatic towards the news.

"I wish I could take some credit, but honestly anyone could have predicted this. No women, fabulous hats, and Prada shoes? This is the gayest institution in the world."

    those of you saying that it is a blasphermy should sit up and face the realities of life, a man of 85 years of age said that this is whom he is and you are there saying it’s a lie, is pope a God? no. this act of immorality has been going on among the catholics but God almighty have decided to expose them period. may the name of the Lord be exolted forever.

  • kayman

    This is just a write up made so rumours will increase..the pope didn’t say n has nt said anytin like dis yet..may God 4give u 4such a blasphemy

  • Harrynutsack

    Actually, the idea of a pope is pure blasphemy. Jesus said himself no one comes before the father but by me. The pope and his pedophile friends are trying to block the road to heaven for some back room “hide the sausage” and a little cash.

  • Harrynutsack

    Exactly, Jesus said himself “no one comes before the father but by me.”

  • Georgina

    This is BLASPHEMY… you state that as though it were a bad thing.

    Without a deity, how can there be any form of blasphemy?

    Easy, like racist and islamophobia, it is a word made up by bigots, to excuse their bigotry and put the blame on the rest of the world.
    Don’t like me covering my face? Racist.
    Don’t like me raping children? Islamophobe.
    Don’t care whether Jesus was gay or straight? Blasphemy.

    In the words of your idol: Take care of the splinter in your own eye.

    Whether they like are attracted to women, men, boys or goats isn;t the real issue that they are supposed to remain celibate??????? Last time I checked the Bible said we would all have temptations, it’s up to you to act on them or not. AS any type of priest or pope I was under the impression that celibacy was the criteria.

    Is it
    possible to use drones against IT people in the United States?

    Terrorism
    has been growing in the States, as we already know there has been Cyber Attacks
    offshore and of course there are IT mafia partners doing their part in our territory,
    we cannot imagine how they have been developed in only few years getting mainly
    in the finance, accounting and IT functional areas. Some of them they are already
    have partnership with government employees and government areas, and they are
    supported with money and technology coming from the China imperium.

    They use
    weapons for modern slavery, and as the time pass they have been targeting American
    people who are honest in the IT work and get rid of them in our territory and
    also abroad. It is not a surprise that
    the US government is planning attacks in the US territory if it is necessary
    against citizens without being in courts. IT foreign monopolies have been
    growing in the States, and of course we do not know who they are the really the
    ones coming to work in IT. Most of them with visas that it does not really
    require background checks in their own countries. Most of the sources countries
    of these poor human beings are targeted also with terrorism in a daily basis in
    their own territory, personally and against their families.

    In several
    parts of the world, there is a turning around against US citizens and American corporates,
    but in the States we are still receiving everybody inside our families and
    companies with a welcome, when there is a high risk in the American businesses
    and our families. Instead of hiring citizens
    the companies are continued with the hiring of risky aliens, never less our
    communities are taking desperate measure to keep our rights of our Constitution
    and freedom per se.

    No one can be brave enough to authenticate this article because it is not necessary. The beauty of the Roman Catholic Church is not in her ‘purported’ flawlessness but in her obvious universal perspective of anything. She has withstood all there was to withstand without collapsing. She can’t collapse because her foundations are on rock. according to the biblical parable, rocky ground represents those who cannot grasp that which comes from above. Yes, the majority of mankind is in this class. In fact a person with a rocky mind is that one who cannot visualize anything spiritual whether from God or the devil. Therefore, any external spiritual harshness in form of retribution cannot shake such a person’s conscience. I think it has reached a time where both God and the devil should be removed from the equation relating chaos to mankind’s acts. as Pope Emeritas Benedict XVI said, ‘religion should be made personal’. There are three types of religion : (1) Religions of fear (full of superstitions and irrational adherence to deity worship), (2) Religions of reason (philosophical and pleasing to the mind) and (3) Religions of the Spirit. the former Pope merely wants all of us to graduate from religions of reason to religions of the Spirit. There will not be any formal guidelines for this exercise. More so, what will matter will not be the pace of progress but the direction of progress.

    Everyone has latent homosexuality which is awaiting cultivation by… the devil? Heterosexuality is not a panacea for all evils. if it were so, then how would you explain the raping of women and girls by errant soldiers in some parts of our globe? In the spiritual plane, homosexuality and heterosexuality are complimentary to one another. This is because an evil in the spiritual realm does not manifest as in the physical realm. Thus, when Saint Peter asserted thrice that he loved Jesus, he was most probably reasoning like a homosexual. In his mind, women were evil and the path to heaven is one devoid of women. In such a case, homosexuality becomes holy so long as it involves only the mind but not the body. in the early days of colonization of Africans, there were churches for whites, churches for coloureds and churches for the blacks. The funny thing is that it is only in the churches for blacks where men were separated from women. this is a negative point of heterosexuality. In other words, Africans being the most heterosexual race demonstrated an inability to tone it down in moments when it was least needed (when praying). When an African man is next to an African woman, there is too much electricity between them to perform meaningful spiritual exercises. This is why for a long time the physical body has been described as evil. It is now time to spiritualize the flesh. How? You know better!

    For every single lie existing in the universe, there is another parallel universe where that lie is true. Parallel universes are supposed to be isolated from each other but some ‘adventurous’ individuals have discovered portals for accessing them. This is why we have so many versions of the life of Jesus. In the region immediately above us, all such tales become true so long as you are above them. When you are above something, that thing cannot affect you. The best way to be above something is simply to purify whatever good that is present in that thing without complaining about it’s impurities. In this way, it will matter less whether Jesus married Mary Magdalene or whether Indeed Jesus ran away from his captors and another person was crucified instead. In all these diverse endings of Jesus life, the common denominator is that there is a reason why Jesus came to earth…

    Exactly. A person’s relationships with the Universe and any God or gods that may or may not exist should be up to the person, and the entities he aligns with. No need for the Catholic or any other churches. But we do need a few good rules which we can all agree upon….Don’t kill, don’t steal, and don’t lie, are good “Don’ts.” But I also like don’t insist on making others wrong, don’t always insist on being right, don’t insist on always dominating and don’t be afraid to give in to others from time to time, and don’t invalidate others while justifying ones self.

    When I first heard Pope Benedict retired, my first thought was he was stepping down because some child all grown up now had something on him. Now I read this. Close and maybe not to far off. It is dangerous to have Gay Priest. I am not even Catholic but I thought the mission of the church is to be celibate and dedicate their life to God. I find so much contradiction between Catholicism and what the Bible teaches anyway, it really is no surprise. A lot of “Alter boyz” grow up to become Priest. Very sad.

  • Go Gay Pope

    I wondered if this was real when I read it, and then read your (and other people’s) comments about how one is supposedly ‘dumb’ if they read this and thought it was true. I’m certainly not dumb and don’t see why a person would be dumb to believe this article. Ok, sure the quotes are kinda amazing/ridiculous, but people say kinda amazing/ridiculous things often. I could easily imagine the pope at 80 years old realizing he’s been living a lie, not feeling right about it, wanting to live with a clear spirit in the last years of his life, and coming out of the closet. If you don’t know Daily Currant as a media source and don’t keep up with the Vatican, Catholic, or even Christian news, you could easily believe this story. Jussayin..

    You’d think that if god detested homosexuality so much he’d have made it a commandment, i’m sure he could have written smaller and gotten one more on the stone tablets. But to the best of my knowledge there is no commandment that says “thou shalt not bone bob in the bum”. So, since it doesnt say it, my guess is that he’s not all that worked up about it.

    How many more gays does god have to make before people start to realize he’s ok with it?

    Why shouldn’t the pope be queer? The Roman Catholic church does not follow the Bible or Christ’s teachings. “In vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrine the commandments of men.” Could Jesus have made it any clearer? Catholicism is an evil cult…but it’s not as bad as Islam. If they don’t denounce the queer old fool, they deserve God’s wrath!

    This is arrant nonsense. May God forgive u bcos u don’t know what u are doing.

  • maria

    No, this is all about the farcity of the catholic church and it’s failure. God said ” I will build my church upon this rock, and not eve the gates of hades will prevail against it.” Obviously this is not the church GOD was talking about because it is falling in every way possible. Gay’s, pedofiles, I mean you can’t really think this is from GOD people do you? It’s a church created by the devil himself to fool the masses of people who buy into their drama…. I don’t know of any greater deception that the catholic church and it’s all to make Jesus look like the bad one. I mean isn’t that what Satan wants. Is to discredit Jesus. Come on people it’s not about gayness, or child molestation. It’s about realizing that this church is a fake church. Jesus has nothing to do with this church or it’s false teachers.

  • http://www.facebook.com/karmaisabiatch Heather Moore

    Yes I agree. I could c some truth in this. Agreed with Go Gay Pope – If it was true, it would be possible that he wants to live the last years of his life knowing that he came out and was honest. If it was true, then he obviously still believes in his relationship with God, that doesn’t change, and I do believe that “gayism” is a part of God’s natural plan… ppl have been gay literally for thousands of years and will continue to be gay. I do believe that God would accept a gay person just as much as a straight person. We are all his children after all, why would that change just because someone was gay?

I think is about time for the catholic church to put an end to this crap.

  • mark w

    A natural part of God’s creation? Its against His law. Thats the catholic religion, satanism disguised as a Christian religion. You cannot take the laws of God and twist it around to suit your own desires. Gods law is clear, man shall NOT lie with man.

  • Old Chicago

    My Sicilian grandfather (who lived to be 97) was an Altar Boy in the 1920′s. He told me things that had gone on in the Catholic Church in New York and Chicago that would make you cringe.
    The main supplier of priest to the Catholic Church in the US was from the Irish and Italian communities. They would “Hide” their gay children in the worlds largest “BOY’S CLUB”, the CHURCH!

  • Ohtel

    That right there contradicts that “god” made us all, If he didn’t like people that are “Gay” then Why did he make them? if it was a mistake then doesn’t that say that “god” is not perfect? why do people Bow heads and praise someone that didn’t do the things us Mortals believe he did?

    So who made us? this fact just empowers Human Evolution from Animals over millions of years and begins the killing of All Religions.

    My personal Theory is that the 1st Evolved humans Came up with there own Theories and that got passed down over the centuries as a Joke and it caught on….while the story got shorter and shorter with people doing there own versions of it over many decades.

  • jri

    the church is gonna say this is a false statement i see it coming… hmmmm the church is always ready to hide the truth… they are gonna blame this on the work of the devil.. smh

    It could be. There’s certainly good satire and bad satire. However, even the best satire will be taken seriously by the gullible.

    That is to say, you can bet your bottom dollar that if Swift were to publish “A Modest Proposal” on the internet nowadays, it would attract thousands of outraged comments and emails from those who took his suggestion VERY seriously.

    “Could it be that gay humor isn’t all that?”

    Because this is definitely representative of all “gay humor” (whatever that is.)

    I asked you to give examples of what God has said about homosexuality. You did not do that. Rather, you chose to judge someone you don’t know at all. What did Jesus say about judging others?

    If he is “NOT” gay he should come out and make a statement to the fact. One thing is clear, God doesn’t provide mixed messages, we do. The Bible is absolutely 1000% clear that homosexuality is not appropriate at any level in life. This is not to say that we have a license to not love and appreciate all people, but we do not have to approve of their chosen lifestyle.

  • Renereyy

    My dear! because the society accepts a particular practice, it doesn’t make it right before God. He is HOLY and RIGHTEOUS. HE is HIS WORD. His word condemns the gay practice. We are supposed to live according to what His word says and not what other people or the society says or does…..

    God accepts gays as much as he accepts someone who looks to lust after a girl and commits adultery with her in his heart. Everyone who is saved, may still do these things from time to time but they will be crushed under the burden of the Holy Spirit so after some time being saved it will cease out of their lives..

    So yes, God, does save gays, adulterers, lairs, etc by giving them a new heart. But a miracle has happened, they now love the things god loves and hates the things god hates, a miracle called being born-again…

    Can you be a Gay christian? Is just like saying, can I be a drunk Christian? Yes, but those sins won’t last too long with the spirit of God working within.

    I think it is hilarious to watch everyone bicker over this matter. We have so much else to be worrying about. Ok, yes, I admit it, I am a homosexual. Why am I one? Honestly, couldn’t tell ya. Tried to figure it out for years. Forced myself to try and look at girls in a way that could attract me to them. No go. To me, I live my life, I have things that I want and worked hard for, I am happy, and my partner is also happy, and we travel and see the world. I have the car I always wanted and the job of my dreams. I am a medical laboratory scientist and I help tons of people everyday, even the ones who will put me down. But somehow, I always seem to breakthrough with a smile on my face and just wave the stupidity that is in front of me. My co workers don’t mind at all, the whole hospital knows of me and my relationship and are always asking how us two are doing. Its great to know that we can get along just like “normal” people. This will continue to be an argument for years and years to come cause its pleasing to some people to debate a point. (Chemical release of certain hormones) Anyway I have to get back to work.

  • elliot

    First of all, gays never asked to be gay they were born liking guys just like you were born liking girls. You just can’t help it. What about hermafrodites ? They can’t really tell what their sexuality is so can they be penalized for that since they were innocent babies born into it? Second, the hatred for gays on the bible comes from the old testiment. In leviticus it also styates that a child that disobeys their parents deserves to be killed. Do we follow that rule nowadays? I don’t think so.

    “Just forget the sins and look at the POSITIVES, their MISSION. Forget all the pain, death and suffering they have inflicted upon the world, look at how they spread “God’s” Word! Awwwww, so cute.” This kind of crap is what Jesus stood against. He wasn’t a big fan of hypocrisy, jus sayin.

  • Veoren

    “Paul” just like the hypocrite, homophobic “deciple”. Yet Jesus saved a gay man, and made of his beloved an good example to others. All while not saying “you are homosexual, change your ways”.

    Sodom and Gomorrah were heterosexual oversexed men who wanted to fuck anything that moved. Including Angels.

    Big flood was for people like you.

    Just. Saying.

  • Veoren

    Your fear begets you. Repent and renounce your fear and hatred, if you truly love God.

  • Veoren

    Take your “cheers” and die with it and your hypocrisy. The world needs less fear-addled sheep like you to create HIS kingdom upon it. If he hates it, why did he made it an unfading part of nature? You are saying we must change the nature he created?

    People like you who sin with fear and never open their eyes to change this sin, they are the pitiful sinners.

    See you after some long, painful time in the purgatory.

  • Lavigne

    “becoming gays’ ~ Yeah, except for the fact that we can scientifically prove that the mindset for being gay is genetic, meaning you are BORN gay. Period. There are several other things ‘wrong’ with the above statement but I doubt me pointing them out will change your mind on anything. Keep hiding under your bed with your bible and ignoring the accumulative knowledge from the last two thousand years while the rest of us work to improve life on earth.

  • Hebrew Israelite

    If you will bring scripture of God addressing sodomy as something He created and accepts…then you will have made your case. But you won’t. YET, Jesus said He did not come to do away with the LAW…which in Leviticus condemns sodomy (homosexuality). No one is born gay, it is a curse that is passed down the family line. Point is, God does not and will not accept this as natural or good. Just like adultery or any sexual activity other than His model in Adam and Eve, homosexuality is a SIN! I’m sorry but it’s truth and nothing will change that. He hates it and clearly says you need to repent and stop it! Don’t ask me…Go to Him. If you really want to know…He still speaks to those who seek Him. Make sure you are ready to hear what He actually has to say. Once you hear, you are accountable to DO what He says.

    So true, read the old testament laws….ALL of them. We don’t follow them

  • Shadii

    You ever hear the saying “ignorance is bliss”? Like how Adam and Eve didn’t even know they were naked until after eating from the tree of knowledge/good and evil? The serpent did have have a little truth in his deception saying they’d be like God knowing good and evil. Since then, mankind has only gotten smarter; knowing more and more of the mysteries of life and the world-like God. Would you not say that we are still learning more and more about God or is he so simplistic that we’ve had him figured out for over centuries now?

  • zach

    well technically gay is still men or women .. Gods doesn`t give a crap about your sexual priorities … poeple sometimes forget that believing in God is about Bible, christianity and definetly not about church ..

  • zach

    it is bible .. i really doesn`t say what God wants or not .. in one part he is against murder, i other he appeal to murder .. etc .. it is collection of more or less accurate historical stories and teological and ethical metaphores .. full of contradictionary and somethimes lacking coherence ..

  • zach

    so based on Bible: Earth is flat and steady (Deut 13:7, 28:49, Job 38:13), Moon is source of light (Gen1:16, Iza 13:10), Men owns women and women is worth one bull or donkey (Ex 20:17) and of course you can sell her (Ex 21:7) .. etc etc … too many corrections, translation mistakes, editing with purpose …

  • indra

    im not supporting Gay, but as a christian, i believe God gives us a free will… if anyone here dont agree to Gay, does not mean that you can judge them,.. arent we supposed to be the one to guide and bring them to the right path? even in the end they dont want to receive it,.. we should know that they have free will are not we? tell me what would Jesus do?

    Is this what our world has come to? So failed journalists are now crowding the internet with satire journalism and proudly think these articles bring them honor and prestige by faking information in the guise of legitimate information? These authors couldn’t make it as a legit journalists and see the popularity of such publications as The Onion and they believe if they too can fake the news they too will become prized writers? All they do is cloud the air with disinformation and cause confusion for people who get caught off guard with these outlandish news angles (present company included) for the benefit of false sensationalism. This is a sign of our times, as mediocrity and sub-par performance is rewarded with praise from an audience that has fallen way below standard intelligence levels. Fuck satire sites, and fuck the Daily Currant.

  • Nina

    Thank you for shining some light in this discussion! Seems that many people here don’t know Jesus is real ;-) Yes the Bible clearly states that God forgives gays, in the church of Corinth Paul preached to some people and named different sins which included homosexuality, and said to the church but you were cleansed and you were sanctified. That means they WERE gay, but no longer gay because of the purifying work of the Holy Spirit.. Jesus loves prostitutes, gays, drug dealers, all sinners, but they DO have to repent.. He is merciful and forgives!

    It’s not about fakery, it’s about social commentary and criticism via wit, also known as SATIRE. This is not intended to be journalism, and the writers neither aspire to be newswriters drumming up sensational stories to create controversy nor intend to confuse the general public.
    If you lack the sense to tell the difference, then you are a part of the satire as well you ignoramus.

  • Ameen

    Being a Muslim, I would not belive in such a story as we are asked to investigate the matter first before propogating it. Likewise, I would also request the people to study Islam’s teachings first and the biography of our beloved prophet before labelling as terrorists or engaging in blasphemy against our prophets. This article very well reflects how little wisdom and morals the western media has!

  • Tripfag

    Daily currant is satire

  • Oki

    money isn’t everything when Jesus said renounce. money was just a part of it. people from the gov’t or in the church (humans) will always have excuses to use all means to satisfy their greed. That’s why he also said that the poor are very lucky, because they have nothing in the first place. Did Christ’s teachings do anything to any of you? no, it’s the people who pretend they know Jesus. For example, “Hi, I’m a Christian and this is Jackass!” and blame Jesus because an asshole said that? C’mon people, NOT all rich or powerful people abuse what they have, and NOT all Christians live the way they were expected to be. Before we became Christians, Atheist and all, we we’re damn humans for crying out loud!

  • Phantus

    A lot of religious morons are passing this around Facebook thinking it’s real. Have you never read another article on the Daily Currant? The gullibility of cultists is obvious but it never ceases to amaze me how tight they have their eyes shut while their whole life passes them by.

    which one is word of GOD the old testament or new testament? is God keep coming again and again to release the new version which suits the current days? if you dont agree with old testament then what is the point of following the new testament since new came from old or you mean the old testament was having mistakes that is why new version came since God made some mistakes

  • HolyHerald

    Don’t worry people, this is already Biblical ^_^
    the time will come when the right doctrine will be made wrong and the wrong doctrine will considered right…Just live according to what Your faith has and always will teach/taught you… we don’t need to consent to or contradict this just live a life that matters … stick to the golden rule (and not the golden goose with golden eggs, or even Midas’ [golden] death touch).

    Lets just go on with our lives and LIVE the FAITH not just stay in our seats and comment on the internet while the devil’s advocates are out there lollygagging and spreading hoaxes about our faith…we have to be in the world as well…doing our thing as believers otherwise we’re just passive!

    being gay is a personal choice and may change at any given time or age AGAIN it solely relies on the person who made the decision, its NEVER a “NATURAL PLAN” LOL! ^_^

    Regarding the case of the Pope being gay…it was never actually proven…although what WAS INDEED PROVEN was the fact that the Pope stepped down from his position due to threats also initiated from WITHIN the VATICAN which is REALLY kind of sad…but no matter how much they try to eliminate the weeds, new ones (accomplices) will always take their place…AGAIN that too is BIBLICAL…

    the crux of the matter is, we have to ACT out FAITH not just speak it by word of mouth…accept gays as fellow human beings but REMIND them about the purpose of being a MAN or a WOMAN…NEVER EVER CONDEMN THEM FOR THEIR PERSONAL DECISION…they may actually revert to their natural selves if talked to considerately…

    about the others who commented here about this…please read, READ and REVIEW facts before coming to hasty, generalized conclusions…say for example, one FACT is that…the Former Pope Benedict XVI never released media coverage of what he was doing prior to this post and in the latter days…so did Pope Francis…(he did not mention consenting to gay marriage, he merely mentioned the fact that we must respect ‘human individual’s rights) they released encyclicals though, which are by the way very informative, other than that…NO MEDIA COVERAGE, INTERVIEWS etc…

    “scientists have made it possible to bend light, while the media found ways to bend the truth” —for the purpose of stirring up people and causing mass confusion which they would of course benefit from because of ratings on who has the most convincing stories…

  • mick Wander

    And I| suppose girls are made heterosexual from child abuse and molestation from heterosexual men. You people really scrape the bottom of the barrel in your bigoted nonsense. God may have made 2 genders but gender is not the same as sexuality of which there are many and have been for 1000′s of years.

  • Mick Wander

    The Bible was written by men to control the lives of others through fear and guilt and it is still being used for the same end. In Buddhism there is no concept of a supreme being creator and never has been. it’s amazing that in that religion all men and women are equal and there is no discrimination against anyone on the grounds of sexuality. Listening to you lot in your ignorance and bigotry using a non existent god who you claim to speak on behalf of as an excuse is pitiful.
    Half the world is dying of man made poverty, starvation disease and genocide, while the so called civilized half spend billions every year blowing each other off the face of the earth and all you people can do is witter nastiness about gay people who by and large are just ordinary people going about their daily lives. They have no choice and they have no agenda and just want to be left in peace. Shame on you all.

  • OaklandBikeMedic

    Don’t worry, I’ve had plenty of cosmic revelations. Long story short: “God” told me not to take the Bible too seriously so it won’t contaminate the message of Jesus. That accountability to “God” is why I don’t let my fellow man’s sexual orientation get in the way of the commandment to love him as my neighbor.

  • James Gilligan Murray

    Thank you for painting a bigger picture, Its good to see someone that realizes that there are more important things than bickering about sexual orientation, .
    Yes gays exist, yes they mostly want to go about living their lives, yes they are human.
    But focus on more important things like helping to prevent people from dying from starvation, giving out a good quality education to children, getting International Humanitarian Law in place to save lives, stop mass murder of innocent people etc.

    Good for you, Labman. I agree with you entirely. I, also am gay and cannot pretend to be attracted to women, so how can anyone say that I am living an “unnatural life” ???? It’s natural to me. If I forced myself to be with a woman, THAT would be unnatural and also unfair to the woman to just use her as a shield to hide behind. You did the right thing, as did I. At least we are honest. Way too many overtly homosexual men hide behind women and other “macho” activities to cover up their true identity.

  • BobInBpt

    I notice that many on here keep saying that this article is only satire and not factual. Well, how would anyone know that? Where is the disclaimer anywhere on here? Couldn’t they be sued for libel for printing out and out lies?

  • BobInBpt

    Well why not? According to the Bible, God has allowed the Devil full run and control of the earth for at least 3,000 years. He allowed the Devil to torment Job and kill his family. He allowed the Devil to kill most of the prophets and even Jesus. And the Book of Revelation says that at the end of the Thousand Year Kingdom of God, that the Devil will be let loose again to tempt more souls. Doesn’t that make God just as guilty as any Pope ?????

    mockery …satire or not seldom has a positive effect except for those engaged in it by having a good laugh at the expense of the one being laughed at….done on the internet it takes on the dynamic of gossip .where .it mutates into false facts that are taken as true and very damaging to the one its aimed at ….

    as a protestant christian I may have differences with the catholic theology and take exception to the moral corruption that has creeped into the catholic church …but I will use prayer and other venues to elicit correction …

  • William Harper

    Wow! Does this apply to all “mockery” or just “mockery” that offends you? In other words, do you ever mock anything?

  • http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EvidencefortheBible/ Galut1

    To say I have never used mockery in the past would not be true ,however over time I have learned that mockery is a serpent of many tails that is capable of reaching around and biting you …carelesly using words that hurt others can and often does come back to haunt you …letting words fall from ones lips or pen that hurt others is niether right nor loving …

    I try to apply the standard set down By Jesus …Iam not perfect yet but it is agoal I shoot for….

    Matthew 5 : 43-47

    43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

    44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

    45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

    46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

    47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

    Satire that is employed in sessions where some one is being roasted and the subject of the roast understands the dynamic, it may be OK ….but even there I would apply the test ..is it hurtful in the long term ….

  • Marga

    If you are so bible orientated… have you ever read the part of the bible where Jesus said that anyone who hurts a little child, should have a millstone put around his neck and thrown into the sea? – I cant remember the exact words, but Jesus did indeed rebuke evil deeds many times. Turning the other cheek only allows evil to continue. “All it requires for evil to triumph, is for good people to sit back and do (or say) nothing to stop it”

  • http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EvidencefortheBible/ Galut1

    There may be elements in the Catholic church that are this way…but there are also millions of loving and caring folks that would give you the shirt off their backs if they thought you needed it …they are a part of that church you so glibly lump together and say they deserve to be mocked…

  • http://groups.yahoo.com/group/EvidencefortheBible/ Galut1

    There is appropriate times to turn the other cheek …the lord followed his own sermon on the mount advice/standard at his trial by the jews and pilate …

    but I agree turning a blind eye to evil that is done to children whether by clergy or some average joe should be rebuked and appropriate justice meted out to those that harm children … Each one of us has a responsibility to report these kind of evil things … and if we don’t ..one day we will be called to account for why we didn’t by the lord ….

  • Aidan

    Although I am an Atheist I absolutely respect Galut1′s points, more so than my fellow atheists, in fact. As he’s pointed out there’s satire and then there’s mockery, this IS NOT SATIRE.

    I have gay friends re-posting this thinking it’s actually true, that is not in any way amusing. I think many atheists’ are forgetting, we are absent of religious doctrine, not a group who comes together to bash others…for me that’s a big part of being an atheist – to be a humanitarian, to step outside preconceived false labels based on someones spirituality or faith.

    I’m not defending organized religion which I dislike, I’m defending the good people who do not deserve to be treated like idiots because they have another opinion. There are more intelligent, and considerate, ways to make a protest or point.

  • Time to Learn

    Sorry buddy, but there have always been more than just two gender/sexes male, female, and hermaphrodites. And if you doubt this maybe you should do some research. GOD is very much so perfect, but man is not and therefore neither is the bible seeing that it was not only written by man, but changed to suit the needs of men through the ages. ANd with GOD being the perfect being that he/she/it is I would think that petty feeling such as anger and hate would be quite beneath GOD. If you disagree with any of this that’s totally your call, but don’t bash on other people because of what you believe.

  • Time to Learn

    Please take this personally, you are in fact a very stupid person. May you one day choose not to be.

  • Andy Wesley

    I don’t think anyone is suprised Lol

  • Guy

    You are so ignorant

  • k

    Much love to him!

  • Lia

    I think you should do your research on those “rich white men” ruling the church..you obviously haven’t a clue on the lineage of past Pope’s!

  • Lia

    Who exactly did the apostles kill?? Last time I read the bible the apostles were the ones who were running for their lives..do you know how many Christians were killed in those day for switching to Christianity?? Including some apostles?? of course you don’t its evident by your posts..Please take a theology class soon so that you can at least spew some facts instead of this crap!

  • Lia

    Your an uneducated moron. 99% of child molesters are straight..and anyone who is homosexual is born that way..another case of the uneducated!!

    This is absolutely brilliant :D

    “Yes, most likely satire”

    Well done Einstein. Perhaps if you got your head out of the bible, you wouldn’t be such a gullible twit.

  • MaslowK

    What makes you think I’m a bible-thumper? Kind of a silly assumption to make based on one internet comment :P

  • Guest

    Or larger tribes ravaging smaller ones in the name of their favorite higher power somewhere around the middle east, if we take some parts of the old testament as actual history. Sort of boils down to the same thing, and in that sense really didn’t start exclusively as a “white” thing. It just happened that colonial europeans took advantage of the same concept at some point.

  • Freddy

    Well said TAyers333. Its not a choice to be gay any more than its a choice to be straight. Nobody should be judged for being either. We are all unique beings, with paths to walk and ultimately our own karma to receive.

  • ndrwmll

    LMAO. Classic awesomeness.

    How about what faith you aren’t? My relatives in Scotland were oppressed in their low-income neighborhood by the teenaged children of muslim families. These youth would beat up the boys and spit on the girls for not wearing burkas. Authorities did nothing. They were forced to leave the country. Because of American immigration laws and their income level they had to go to Canada.

    When all of us are equal under the rule of law we are free.

  • Veoren

    I don’t.. really understand if you’re on my side or not.. :/

  • Jason Hartwick

    Neither. I don’t think there should be “sides”. We are ALL human, and we ALL have a right to our own opinions. I am just tired of hearing that all the blame lies on one side of an issue like this. Christians are often hypocrites, but by the very act of saying “everyone should be accepted for who they are”, then turning around and hating someone for their belief system, or constantly showering hate upon their belief system, people who are against christianity are no better. So I am not on your “side”, but neither am I on the “side” of christians. I am on the “side” of equality and acceptance for EVERYONE. Stop the fanaticism of some christians, but don’t forget to stop the fanaticism of some anti-christians (meaning “against christians”) while you’re at it.

    Oh yeah?…well my uncle got a porsche, he stole it….

  • JEFF_777

    The apostles killed more people than they saved? How did you come to that ridiculous conclusion?

  • FidelKastro

    X lo menos fuiste valiente en manifestar lo k piensas y no recurres a un facilismo literario. En cambio hay escritos x alli k denotan cobardia en defender los valores, transmiten su temor al k diran o simplemente translucen sus propias frustraciones y recurren a escribir en favir de lo k sta de moda ser heterofóbico.

  • A Random Person

    Hmm…I guess if he’s happy with his decision, then it should be fine for the time being. He served great after all these long years, and all of a sudden, people hate him for coming out of the closet. Where is your logic, people? Look at what he’s done over the time he’s been here!

  • Garry Brezia

    The pope gives the truth about himself for his conscience liberation. So, let’s not be his defenders on that fact.

    this part, “…designed to impact negatively those of faith and conservative values …”

  • A Believer

    I am so glad that my trust is in Jesus. My life is based on the Holy Bible. God destroyed Sodom for this sin and He will not change. In the Old Testament, people were stoned. Jesus said, If you love me “Keep my Commandments”. There are many more in the New Testament than 10. If the whole World obeyed the Bible. We would have a wonderful World. The Catholic Church is not set up as the New testament commands. Why would anyone pray to Mary? Jesus is head of the Church and He is the only way to Heaven . He is the door. He is the only one that can forgive sins. I am so glad He forgave me of my sins Paise the Lord..

  • FilthyHeathen

    That’s why it’s so clever.

  • Jim Brasher

    Only a fuckin moron would post bullshit like this. Daily Currant is fictional satire and not a source for reliable info.

  • IRAMOE

    Lynne, as all the joking above shows you, the Pope wasn’t/isn’t Gay! Please do investigate! But remember, Do NOT mistake the sins of men, as the sins of the Church.(speaking of the pedophiles and those that hid them) Every Catholic truly believes they should all be punished under the law.

  • IRAMOE

    Notice no name on the article. . . . . .

  • Nikos
  • Patrick

    It’s as if people don’t realize this sounds exactly like all the junk mail we receive. “I’ve got millions to give you, so send all personal info to me!!” type of thing. You see it too much.

  • lsba

    Dun tell me you’re a Christian
    Pharisees.

  • Rob Dotzler

    Hey Paul, I suspect the whole point of this “article” is based on the fact that Benedict was part of the pedophile cover up. That’s why he gave up the papacy FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF CATHOLICISM! F*cking bigot.

  • Rob Dotzler

    I, for one, am not buying your latest argument. I think you’re being disingenuous now. Just trying to seem like you want equal niceties? I call b*llshit.

  • Rob Dotzler

    What does he care what he says, he’s Anonymous. Just another troll. His courage just blows me away.

  • Rob Dotzler

    Or maybe he was MADE from child molestations & sexual abuse….usually from other pedophiles.

  • Rob Dotzler

    Gee, I wonder if Leviticus mentions anything else….

  • Rob Dotzler

    “Don’t ask me…Go to him.”? Got that address?

  • Rob Dotzler

    His participation (and outright control over all of the reports) with the massive coverups of pedophile priests gives this parody all the credibility it needs.

  • Rob Dotzler

    Haven and all their “troubles”? No thanks! ;-)

  • Rob Dotzler

    Only $$$ scores a douche like this the woman he has. Jmho.

  • Rob Dotzler

    Let me fill you in on dangerous. FOX news. It acts like it’s a news organization but it’s a horrifying lie factory who wants us all to fall into lock step (goose step?) with the owner who is so rich he could give a crap if you live or die. The funniest part of the wealth that goes to him? It goes offshore as he’s not even an American, or if you need that translated, ‘murican.

  • jake hoek

    None can prove anyone is born as a homo-sexual. but it is self-evident we are all sinners and all sins dwell in us! But are not germinated (yet) fully. God created man SINLESS. In Adam we all fell into Satan’s kingdom. When He puts HIS fear in us, we depart from evil, though not perfectly. Many bloggers rantings reveal the enmity in the unconverted. Besides God predicted it will get worse when approaching the last day! This I can confirm comparing, mine before World war 2 youth years, when the majority, atheist also, abhorred homosexuality! O Mores!

    Disgusting!… Former head of the Christian faith enjoyed playing with his bits!!

    What a stack of crap.

    LOLOLOLOLOL!!! You muppet….

  • Walter White

    You don’t need a website to negatively impact on “those of faith”, science and logic already does a great job.

  • Walter White

    It reminds me of the two Irish priests in our parish, Father Patrick Fitzmichael and Father Michael Fitzpatrick….

    Anybody who spells the word idiot incorrectly, can’t really call anybody else an idiot, now can they, eh?

  • Nikos

    Therefore, when referring to our moon, use *The Moon* or *Moon*. When referring to our sun, use *The Sun* or *Sun*.Therefore, when referring to our moon, use *The Moon* or *Moon*. When referring to our sun, use *The Sun* or *Sun*.

    I see you are a scholar eh?

    As a true scholar that you are you should use a capital C when you write the word Christ also when you reffer to the Bible you should use the capital B because all the nouns are written with the first letter capital. I hope you know what a noun is, a noun for example is the Sun and the Moon.
    I write this because i see you tend to correct people’s writing behaving like a grammar’s policeman or my old teacher who still does the same. He is old what is your excuse for pretending to be the Oxford’s dictionary eh?
    Friendly Nikos

    “I write this because i (sic) see you tend to correct people’s (sic) writing behaving like a grammar’s (sic) policeman (sic)”

    An eloquent diatribe, devoid of grammatical accuracy; well done and I rest my case!
