Pope Homophobe XVI

If the gay left is having conniptions over Rick Warren — and, indeed, they are — maybe Obama can soothe their anger by inviting this other religious dude to speak at the inauguration:

Pope Benedict said on Monday that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behavior was just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction.
“(The Church) should also protect man from the destruction of himself. A sort of ecology of man is needed,” the pontiff said in a holiday address to the Curia, the Vatican’s central administration.
“The tropical forests do deserve our protection. But man, as a creature, does not deserve any less.”
The pope said humanity needed to “listen to the language of creation” to understand the intended roles of man and woman. He compared behavior beyond traditional heterosexual relations as “a destruction of God’s work.”
He also defended the Church’s right to “speak of human nature as man and woman, and ask that this order of creation be respected.”

OK, try this: Joe Biden is a Catholic, right? Caroline Kennedy, Catholic, too. So, how about some reporter ask these two Democratic Catholics what they think about the Pope’s statements about homosexuality and “the language of creation”?

Never gonna happen. Nobody in the press corps ever thinks to ask these questions of Democrats, so Biden and Kennedy get to parade around as if they’re pious Catholics without ever having to discuss the church’s actual doctrine or theology. But let a Republican evangelical like Sarah Palin speak of “God’s will” and it’s “ooged-boogedy” time!
