INTERNATIONAL: Dutch Foreign Affairs Minister Slams Pope Pope Benedict XVI’s Anti-Gay Politics
In a recent interview the Dutch Foreign Affairs Minister Frans Timmermans wondered how the ex-Hitler Youth and current Pope Benedict XVI and the Vatican claim to respect everyone’s uniqueness while simultaneously spreading hatred against gays and lesbians.
Speaking with RTL News Timmermans says:
If every person is unique… then why should that unique person not have the right to stand up for their own sexual orientation?” said Timmermans. “Why can Romeo marry Julia but not Julius?
Marriage between two people of the same sex is having respect for the uniqueness of the individual.”
Catholicism has decreased significantly in recent decades in the Neatherlands due to the forward thinking of the country and the Roman Catholic pedophile church scandals.
Latest statistics show that roughly only 25% of the country remains Catholic, down from 40% in 1970’s
