Pope Says Gay Marriage Is 'Obstacle' to World Peace

Yes folks, The L Word is going to bring the world to its knees.... OK, that was a bad analogy.

From the flaming liberals over at Pew Forum:

Nuclear arms proliferation, environmental pollution and economic inequality are threats to world peace -- but so are abortion, birth control and same-sex marriage, Pope Benedict XVI said in a statement released by the Vatican Tuesday (Dec. 11).

"The Human Family, a Community of Peace" is this year's papal message for the World Day of Peace, which will be observed Jan. 1.

Presenting the nuclear family as the "first and indispensable teacher of peace" and the "primary agency of peace," the 15-page document links sexual and medical ethics to international relations.

"Everything that serves to weaken the family based on the marriage of a man and woman, everything that directly or indirectly stands in the way of its openness to the responsible acceptance of new life ... constitutes an objective obstacle on the road to peace," Benedict writes.

What do you think the obstacles to world peace are?

Oh. And nukes. You can't have peace with nukes. Hand guns, maybe peace. But definitely not nukes.

You can't hug your children with nuclear arms!
