Pope: Gay Marriage is 'Ideology of Evil'

Pope John Paul's newly published book Memory and Identity takes aim at gay marriage, saying:

"It is legitimate and necessary to ask oneself if this is not perhaps part of a new ideology of evil, perhaps more insidious and hidden, which attempts to pit human rights against the family and against man."

Evil is becoming the catch-phrase of this decade! "Axis of evil", "evildoers", "fight against evil", and those are just from George W. Bush! Now the Pope wants in on the action.

People are always welcomed to their opinions, and I know the Pope doesn't 'poll' issues with the people like a politician would, but I'll wager that a majority of those asked would consider gay marriage somewhat less evil than, say, secretly raping children.

I think most people would consider same-sex marriage between two consenting, loving adults a lot more palatable than children being molested and psychologically scarred by the very people they are supposed to trust and confide in.

The Pope should really get his house in order before he starts worrying about an issue he's unlikely to understand in the first place.
