What did the pope say about gays now? (Hint: 'I'll miss 'Will & Grace' is not it)

by Jeremy Hooper

   Pope Benedict XVI has once again made a dig at gay folks, reportedly telling a convention of the John Paul II Pontifical Institute today that "only the foundation of complete and irrevocable love between man and woman is capable of forming the basis of a society that becomes the home of all men'' and describing gay unions as "weak love."

It's unclear what the Pope meant by...ah, screw it; this claim's far too weak to even dignify. Maybe someday the Pope will start pontificating on things that really matter and stop disparaging the love we experience weekly.
