Pope ups ante on gay marriage

Pope Benedict has certainly upped the ante as regards gay marriage.

Unfortunately, the Pontiff has an obsessive Augustinian attitude that the world is evil and is heading for destruction because of, among other issues, the acceptance by so many people that same-sex marriage is a valid human right in the search for happiness.

It is sad to see the exodus from the Catholic Church of good people who are scandalised by the personal views of Pope Benedict. If the revelation of Jesus that "God is love" is true, then God is in the love of gay people for each other.
