Pope Benedict’s Confusing Political Priorities

September 26, 2011

I was reading some other blogs around the nation this evening and came across this paragraph that is right on the mark.

Yet while he (Pope Benedict XVI) continues to argue on the losing side of the (family and marriage) debate, the world is ravaged by suffering that one would assume a man in his position would focus more on. Every day, 16,000 children die due to hunger related causes. The United States is engaged in global conflict, is establishing military bases in Africa to launch deadly drones on civilians, governments around the world are imposing deadly austerity measures on the citizens, the gap between the wealthy and everyone else is widening, people are dying because they can’t pay for health insurance, and all the Pope can focus on is two gay people wanting to get married? This is what the Church is spending its time on?

    Or complaining about secularism, for that matter.

    The Pope definitely needs to revisit his priorities.
