Pope focused gay antipathy on Canada specifically

by Jeremy Hooper

   Pope Benedict is lashing out at Canadian politicians for, among other things, legalizing gay marriage. Reuters quotes the pontiff as saying in an address to Canadian bishops:

"In the name of `tolerance' your country has had to endure the folly of the redefinition of spouse, and in the name of `freedom of choice' it is confronted with the daily destruction of unborn children"

"When the Creator's divine plan is ignored the truth of human nature is lost
"

Wow, another papal condemnation! Shocking! And here we thought Rosie's triumphant return to television was gonna open hearts and minds. ::sigh::

When asked if we can expect to hear more gay condemnations from him in the future, the Pope was rumored to offer the terse reply: "Is the me Catholic?"
