It is nice to see the Popes taking on New Atheism in Italy head on- may our Bishops have the courage to do similar elsewhere in the world.

Or is it truly a contradiction? In the interview, he asked the Bishops to be more pastoral with gay people and less concerned with the subject of abortion. In the second article I linked to, he's talking to a different audience- to medical professionals whose very vocation is rightly the Gospel of Life.
Maybe the contradiction doesn't exist in Italian or Spanish. Perhaps it only exists in American English- tainted by the divisiveness of the culture war.
They changed the name of the 2nd article on me.

But the problem is, authority is a necessary part of the scientific method. Without a trust in authority, certain forms of evidence can't exist. This damages the ability to look at any topic objectively- it creates an invincible bias that destroys truth.

Colony Collapse Disorder has been linked to these pesticides, and we've seen recent mass dieoffs in parking lots in Oregon. Bill S. recently reminded us
You know that the human race has the ability to counteract and manipulate nature for our own purposes and that there is nothing wrong with that, right?
This proves that there is indeed quite a bit wrong with that concept, and has been for a very long time now. If we don't start living WITH nature instead of AGAINST nature, soon we won't be living at all. Bee pollination is at the root of our agricultural system. There WILL be a massive famine if the bees go extinct.
ALL attempts to go against nature always have unintended consequences. Some are easier to see than others. But all are bad.

There is NO purpose to recreational sex.
Despite the similarities, the reward outweighs the risk with the first. And is nothing other than mutual prostitution with the second.

A way back to where I was 10 years ago.
The problem with gay marriage is not the gay, it is the marriage.
Marriage, as concieved by every civilization so far, is inherrantly discriminatory. Even in the most simple, polyamourous form, it says "I will restrict my sexuality to this one group of people and no other". Human beings seem to need this level of security.
But it is awfully bigotted of government to enforce that discrimination.
Therefore civil marriage is incompatible with the Constitution, at least as currently envisioned. CIVIL MARRIAGE DISCRIMINATES. There is no way to write a marriage law that does not discriminate, because the whole intent of marriage is to discriminate.
Just think of the money we could save on divorce courts, if there was no government recognized marriage!
