I believe his position is that he advocates equal rights. If we want everyone to be treated equally, why do we specifically insist on Gay Rights? - Apart from the fact that they are obviously NOT equal at the moment.
Pope Francis Backs Slovakia's Referendum Against Same-Sex Marriage, Adoption Rights

He's actively arguing against gay rights, just to be clear.

I agree. I find that when I'm informed, the quality of my posts suffers.

When I say (or more often just think) "oh boy" it usually means: I think you said/acted/are stupid but I really don't think its worth arguing because I can't be bothered dealing with your stupidity because it will lead to nothing useful anyway

Rather than unsuccessfully trying to pretend religion and modern knowledge,(aka human rights/ woman rights/etc) can coexist; why not just be honest?

All religions are a primitive and outdated way of thinking. Anything to the contrary is a desperate attempt to hold on to a fairy tale. Let it go man. The whole idea of a Pope is ridiculous to begin with.

Yup. I never liked "my bad". Grammatically incorrect and somehow awkward for someone of my age/ethnicity.

Religions should play no part in law-making, but the right of religious freedom should continue to be one of the basic human rights. Religions have a very powerful role in community building and as a basis for morality. You cannot deny the good that that they do, just as I cannot deny the incredible damage that they also can promote.

Christianity has been around for around a hundred generations, what gives this generation the right to call time on it, and the role that the Pope plays as the "ancestor" of the Church's first apostle? The growth of radicalism may be seen to mirror the growth of atheism to combat those with moral anarchy. Not saying that these are my views, necessarily.

what gives the next one or the next one? tradition for tradition's sake isn't enough for us as much anymore. we're looking at life and the universe and finding religion less and less credible and valid with our new set of circumstance and information. that's ok. it will die someday. all things do.
