Gays and Secular Law: “Render unto Caesar….”?

December 24, 2008

When religious leaders speak in our secular world today, few people really listen (or care).  But somehow the Pope managed to anger many.  Below is an example of the loopy comments we have seen….God Bless and Merry Christmas to everyone….

“I am afraid that the Pope’s positions differ strongly from those of the governments of the 27 EU Countries who, in the Charter of Fundamental rights of the EU citizen, have clearly stated and stressed that any sort of discrimination based on sexual orientation is a crime.”

“I believe that the Pope is treading on dangerous waters when he comes up with this type of arguments.”

This came to Peace and Freedom from Arnold Cassola at:

Arnold seems to admit that the Pope can walk on water; which means I’ll listen…..

Unless Arnold has slipped into an oxymoron….which doesn’t make anyone a moron….

Also, the Pope generally deals with sin, not crime.

Recall the phrase “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s….”?

We would just point out that the Pope answers to another power than do the many nations of the European Union so it is no crime or sin or surprise that the entities do not agree…..

Merry Christmas!
