Pope Benedict XVI tends to use his traditional end-of-year speech to offer his Christmas greetings and say a few words about what he considers the important issues of the day, and this year the cause is queggertry.
I've looked around the site and tried the search function but still can't find anything on his comments this morning.

His Holiness has said that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour is just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction, but I suppose that depends on how importantly you rate saving a South American copse.

While the Church was thought to be moving towards a more liberal attitude to these matters, (several years after the British Army I note,) it looks like Papa Benny just doesn't like poofs.
You can take the Pope out of the HJ, but you can't take the... :D

Everyone knows all homo's, and transexual shim adams appled freakazoids are going to burn in hell and damnation for all time anyway.

The big man is just relaying the word of our lord God, and we should reflect on this during the holiday season and birthday of his lad and remember that we were made different for a reason..

Men were put on this earth to rule, hunt, kill and generally do all the stuff that needs doing properly

Women were put here on the earth to shut the f uck up and do as they're told before they get another back hander.

People who transgress and try and blur these lines are in direct defiance of God's instruction book (it's all in there, just look)

Anyone who cannot see the simplicity of God's wonder is a heretic and will also burn along with the fudge packers and the "Ooh i cant make my mind up which gender I should be this week" brigade.

Here endeth the lesson.

Of course not! It's homosexuality that's the sin. Pederasty is quite ok.

Sadly a rather large proportion of the people inhabiting this planet seem fairly convinced it is neither myth nor superstition.
No idea why but the belief in one god or another is quite popular and we seem saddled with it.
Back to the Pope, given that the man was a Nazi in his younger days its hardly surprising he isn't actually in favour of homosexuality. Can't say I'm much of a fan myself, its only bonus is that it helps reduce the amount of people breeding a little.

It isn't only blokes who are that way inclined. Ask Cernunnos.

And no matter what proportion of people 'believe' - it is still myth and superstition: http://www.400monkeys.com/God/

Considering the holy father was an air defender, his views seem basically sound to me...

Edited to add; I enjoyed the debate on BBC R4 this morning. The Beeb obviously thought they would have a sky-pixie believing nutter in the blue corner being turned over by a rational human being in the red corner. Sadly their researcher hadn't quite done the homework and they ended up with two Catholic theologists arguing about whether the issue was how does Christ's message that we should love everyone square with the growing scientific awareness that "gender" is somewhat more than about different primary and secondary physical characteristics. First class radio as well as making the Beeb look twattish.

The best bit was when the presenter tried to make the pro-Christ's message that we should love everyone pundit agree that this meant buggery is fine by God. Love the sinner, hate the sin anyone?? Merry Christmas Jarrod...

Only because he wasn't good enough for Field.

But not, I think, of this type.

Because, contrary to any sort of scientific evidence, they seem to believe he is the mouthpiece of some invisible deity.

Totally agree with msr, religion is just a complete load of outdated bollocks. Fcuk the Pope he means nothing to anybody with any rationality and I'm sure the fudge packers don't really care what he has to say.

I think Richard Dawkins should start giving Christmas speeches to add a nice sense of irony to our festivities.

Maybe this invisible deity uses his mouth for other things also?

Maybe it'd be appropriate to simply say - fuck him... Like I should worry what he thinks.

This from a religion that seems happy to let it's priests molest kids? Not even worth worrying about really.

Roughly 1.131 billion people.
Thats the quantity of Catholics dotted around the globe, about1/6th of the planets population that listen very closely to the words of Mr Ratzinger.
Thats only the ones that follow the Catholic church, the quanity on non Catholic Christians is about the same, add on the Muslims, the Hindu's, the Jew's and the whatever's then it would appear the notion of a supreme being is quite popular.
Beats me, but it seems quite popular.

Except his opinion is very important to a huge proportion of the worlds population, therefor when he says Fudge Packing is a step above naughty and a threat to the rest of the world around a billion people sit up and take notice.
Now I have no particular liking for homosexual's but I do think it quite important when a man with so much influence around the world issues a proclamation of that magnitude. Like it or not (and I personally don't like it) his opinion matters around the globe
