The Hypothetical New Pope Might Actually Be More Gay-Hatey Than The Old Pope
Pope Benedict XVI is stepping down from his pope-ly duties, his reign marked by gay marriage hating, gay marriage hating, and the occasional IVF slamming. But one of the reported “frontrunners” has gone so far as to defendÂ vehementlyÂ anti-gay legislation. Forget banning gay kids from prom. One of the cardinals reportedly being considered as the new pope has backed thatÂ famousÂ “Kill the Gays” Uganda bill. Jesus loves the little children! And their same-sex parents and family members!
Sixty-four-year-oldÂ CardinalÂ Peter TurksonÂ is reportedly not only from Ghana, but he is a supporter of top-tier supremely homophobic legislation. He has reportedly also defended his home country’s anti-gay laws on the basis that they a part of African culture. And don’t even get him started on “human rights”:
Turkson also criticized U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who has called forÂ Africa to decriminalize homosexualityÂ and end discrimination based on sexual orientation. “When youâ€™re talking about whatâ€™s called â€˜an alternative lifestyle,â€™ are those human rights?â€ said Turkson, according to NCR. â€œHe [Ban Ki-moon] needs to recognize thereâ€™s a subtle distinction between morality and human rights, and thatâ€™s what needs to be clarified.â€
I suppose it’s through such a lense that Cardinal Turkson finds it in his heart to support a bill that makes homosexuality punishable by death. A heartwarming message to mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, and kids everywhere. Crazy train is here and it might be asking for your papal support, Catholic families!
