I apologize for these anti-religious posts on Christmas Eve, but this is really too good to pass up. Blame the Pope for choosing the festive season to make an announcement like this. From the report by Reuters:
Pope Benedict said on Monday that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behavior was just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction.
“(The Church) should also protect man from the destruction of himself. A sort of ecology of man is needed,” the pontiff said in a holiday address to the Curia, the Vatican’s central administration.
“The tropical forests do deserve our protection. But man, as a creature, does not deserve any less.”
That’s an awesome display of insensitivity and being out of touch with the general population right there.
