Pope Benedict kicked off the new year by declaring gay marriage is a threat to humanity's future.
Apparently the pontiff will not be pussyfooting around in 2012.
On Monday, before an audience of diplomats posted to the Vatican, the pope said same-sex marriage was among several threats to the traditional family.
Glad we're not the only one. That really would be more responsibility than we can handle.
Benedict said that "pride of place goes to the family, based on the marriage of a man and a woman."
"This is not a simple social convention, but rather the fundamental cell of every society. Consequently, policies which undermine the family threaten human dignity and the future of humanity itself."
Lordy. If we're going to destroy humanity, we need to get a move on.
