While science makes astounding new discoveries each week, these two fuckwits, Pope Francis and his equally fucked up ally, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, are still debating the proper use of a penis and a vagina.

The Pope and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church have released a joint statement condemning same-sex marriage.

The statement, consisting of 30 points, holds wide-reaching significance for Catholics and followers of the Orthodox Church.

The main message of the statement seems to be the reconciliation of the Orthodox and Catholic churches.

However, as well as a coming together of the two denominations, the statement condemns war in the middle east and the persecution of Christians.

Going on, the statement says Pope Francis and Kirill are “concerned” about Christians being “confronted by restrictions to religious freedom”.

Secular societies are next  on the list, saying that Christians face “outright discrimination”, and that they are faced by an “often very aggressive secularist society”.

The pair urge Europe to “remain faithful to its Christian roots”, and calls on European Christians to be more outspoken about their faith.

In a similar vein to many statements made by the churches, the “family” was high on the agenda.

One point calls family the “natural center of human life and society”, but they say they are “concerned about the crisis in the family in many countries”.

They then say that “the family is based on marriage, an act of freely given and faithful love between a man and a woman.”

The Pope and the Patriarch are apparently worried that the “biblical tradition, of paternity and maternity as the distinct vocation of man and woman in marriage is being banished from the public conscience.”

Patriarch Kirill in 2013 condemned the advance of marriage equality in the West, calling it a symptom of the apocalypse.

The Russian Orthodox Church has been a key supporter of Russia’s anti-gay law, and Patriarch Kirill maintained the Church’s view that homosexuality is a sin – although he has cautioned against punishing people for their sexuality.

In 2009 he told an interviewer: “We respect the person’s free choice, including in sex relations.”

Pope Francis last month attacked same-sex marriage and civil unions, ahead of a debate in the Italian Senate at introducing civil unions for same-sex couples.

He said: “There can be no confusion between the family God wants and any other type of union.

“The family, founded on indissoluble matrimony that unites and allows procreation, is part of God’s dream and that of his Church for the salvation of humanity,” he added.

      • Mac, when someone touches their nose all the time it’s a displacement activity for a violent urge to masturbation.

        Yep, you can’t trust nose touchers. On the other hand, maybe the oke has trouble with his sinuses because of years of cocaine sniffing.

  2. And so, my dear fellow bloggers………

    Here we are, 50 years later, and researchers are “discovering” some brilliant
    and “novel” ideas about the human condition, stuff that A.S. Neill said 70 years ago and Janov said fifty years ago.

  3. “Christians facing discrimination from secular societies?” now thats a new one!

    Interesting how church denominations suck up to each other when they experience dwindling numbers. Create a common enemy and joining forces easy to justify. Money, money, money. In the end that is the main motivator.

    • No religious leader has the right to an opinion on a civil union outside his ambit of authority. This politicised Pope is the nastiest and the dumbest we have seen for a long time. He is causing division everywhere he goes.
