Surprise surprise – the Vatican says French bishops are totally right to hate Teh Gayz.
The French Catholic Church is right to defend traditional family values, a top bishop told Vatican Radio yesterday, a day after rights groups criticised a prayer focused on families and children as homophobic.
The prayer, read out in French churches to mark the Assumption holiday, said children should “fully benefit from the love of a father and mother”, underscoring the Church’s opposition to a commitment by French President Francois Hollande to allow gay couples to marry and adopt children.
“French bishops are right to insist that children ‘grow up with a father and a mother’,” Bishop Vincenzo Paglia, head of the Vatican’s families committee, told Vatican Radio.
So that they will understand that one sex is inferior, and subordinate to the other. You can’t get that with same-sex parents. It’s seriously important.
Bishop Paglia blamed the pursuit of individual rights on a “cultural trend that idolises the rights of the individual”.
Because that interferes with the Vatican’s ability to tell everyone what to do.
