Oh, so gay marriage is what's evil

I'm glad Pope John Paul II clarified that for us in his new book. Otherwise, I'd have gone on naively connecting the word "evil" to things like hundreds of pedophile priests molesting thousands of children and largely facing few or no repercussions. Silly me.

This is so infuriating and (for a lapsed Catholic who admires the church's anti-war, pro-fair-wage, anti-death-penalty stance) so sad.

Don't forget their anti-condom-distribution-for-the-AIDS-ridden-overpopulated-countries-that-need-them-the-most stance.

I have my suspicions that due to his ongoing health problems, the pope no longer personally writes a whole lot of the things with his name attached to them, so I wouldn't place all of the blame at his feet. But you both make excellent points.

"I have my suspicions that due to his ongoing health problems, the pope no longer personally writes a whole lot of the things" Oh definitely. The bad thing is that the cardinals writing most of this stuff now will be the ones to select his successor (I briefly discuss this here).
