Pope to Live Out His Call for Peace
as Example to the World
The Holy See's call for peace in the world has challenged the leaders of many nations. He has asked for the lifting of borders and has gone so far as to say, at a speech in Turin Italy, "People who manufacture weapons or invest in weapons industries are hypocrites if they call themselves Christians". During this speech Pope Francis spoke a great deal about entering into a time of trust and stated that "duplicity is the currency of today...they say one thing and do another. " Pope Francis's cry to lay aside wealth and tend to the homeless and poor echoes the globe. With the Pope asking humanity to enter into an era of trust and mutual respect, it seemed fitting to the Holy See to exemplify his teachings; to not, "say one thing and do another."
Today, in a dramatic announcement, Pope Francis revealed his plans to pave the way for this era of trust by traveling through Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran in an open-top vehicle. He will have no guards and has asked that no armed security be provided by the governments of these countries. At home he has already implemented this new era of weapons ban by repositioning all Vatican guards as gardeners and ordering the vast store of weapons destroyed.
To divest himself of any shred of hypocrisy from his oratory shaming the wealthy of the world, while away on this journey, Pope Francis has turned over control of the bank accounts and the entire wealth of the Vatican to a homeless man, named Bernie, he met while visiting a nearby shelter. In a separate announcement, with the new open border policy in effect, Vatican tours will now be at the whim and whimsy of tourists, 24/7.
There has been immediate criticism of the Pope by many for not living up to his call for reduced emissions to stop global warming and they are demanding that he not take an automobile on this journey due to what that would symbolize to the world. It is said that the Pope's aids are now frantically searching for a horse and buggy for the journey of his Holiness. PETA is outraged!
Will Gay Marriage End Gayness?
By Steve Cooper
If homosexuality is genetic, then the worst thing that could ever be done against the gay movement is to have the general public openly accept homosexuality. The reason being, homosexuals do not reproduce. Only when cultural forces cause gays to pretend to be straight, thus encouraging them to marry those of the opposite sex, will a “homosexual gene” be passed on.
It is therefore logical that the less accepting the culture, the higher the percentage of homosexuals that should be found within that society. Islamic countries, where homosexuals have been openly killed for thousands of years, should have the highest percentage of homosexuals.
It is a terrible fact that the death rate is higher for homosexuals in this religion because of the small percentage who are caught and executed each year. But under the theory of a gay gene, the small number who are murdered doesn’t affect the genetic survival rate as much as the increase that will come because most will marry to hide their homosexuality.
Even though the slain homosexual’s life is spiritually valuable, as far as genetic survival, those theoretical gay genes would never have reproduced if left to their own devices. Only by cultural forces pushing homosexuals to have sex and reproduce with those of the opposite sex does the homosexual’s genetic code ever become anything more than a dead end.
This hypothesis, that gay marriage and social acceptance would be the catalyst for the end of the homosexuality, is based entirely on the idea that being gay is genetic.
The theory of the genetic basis of homosexuality is at odds with the rapid increase in this behavior over the past twenty years and the rapid increase that took place in Germany in the 1920s. At this time the rest of Europe began to refer to Germany as the “homosexual state.”
A gay gene is certainly at odds with the history of Sparta, the ancient homosexual civilization where children of both sexes were raised to be gay and only brought together for heterosexual activities in order to replenish their numbers.
But if you hold to the idea that homosexuality is genetic and it is a gift, realize that under your theory it is a gift that keeps on giving only because of social disfavor.
