And in other news...the pope just can't stop inserting himself into politics. Thanks a lot for making us out to be the "enemy" once again.
http://www.advocate.com/News/Daily_News/2010/05/13/Pope_Gay_Marriage_Insidious_and_Dangerous/It was no secret that Pope Benedict XVI is no fan of gays or same-sex marriage, but he launched an extreme salvo against gay nuptials while in Portugal on Thursday.
Speaking to Catholic service groups, Benedict called for quashing Portugal's same-sex marriage bill which is expected to be signed into law soon saying protections should be made for "the family based on the indissoluble marriage between a man and a woman, help to respond to some of todays most insidious and dangerous threats to the common good."
The New York Times reports that the pope also came out strongly against abortion, which Portugal legalized in 2008.
