Vatican Calls Same-Sex Marriage ‘Sick Egalitarianism’

In a strange claim of support for the LGBT community, a top Vatican official called same-sex marriage “a sick egalitarianism,” while stating gay people should “have the same dignity as all of God’s children.”

Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, head of the Pontifical Council for the Family, also referred to different types of “cohabitation forms that do not constitute a family,” presumably, families headed by same-sex couples.

“Paglia suggested that nations could find ‘private law solutions’ to help individuals who live in non-matrimonial relations, ‘to prevent injustice and make their life easier,’” The Huffington Post reported:

Nevertheless, Paglia was adamant in reaffirming society’s duty to preserve the unique value of marriage.

“The church must defend the truth, and the truth is that a marriage is only between a man and a woman,” he said. Other kinds of “affections” cannot be the foundation for a “public structure” such as marriage.

“We cannot surrender to a sick egalitarianism that abolishes every difference,” he warned, and run the risk of society becoming a new “Babel.”

Responding to journalists’ questions, Paglia also strongly condemned discrimination against gay people, who he said “have the same dignity as all of God’s children.”

“In the world there are 20 or 25 countries where homosexuality is a crime,” he said. “I would like the church to fight against all this.”

One does wonder how much cognitive dissonance it will take before the Vatican just explodes. How many idiots can dance on the head of a pin?

The cognitive dissonance has deafened them, I think — they're numb to it at this point. The scary part is that I'm sure they don't even see the self-contradiction.

In other words the church is saying "We don't want other countries or entities to discriminate against gays — that's OUR job!"

“In the world there are 20 or 25 countries where homosexuality is a crime,” he said. “I would like the church to fight against all this.”

Two lies. I doubt that there are only 20 or 25 countries left where homosexuality is a crime. I *know* that the Vatican doesn't give a damn about fighting against that. Let's hear them come out against Uganda's "Kill-the-gays" bill and its death penalty. They have actually supported it!!
