How can the Pope . . .

bless this woman who supports the killing of homosexuals?

How can anyone support or follow a "man of god" who gives his blessing to a person who not only condones, but is proactive in creating laws that give life sentences or the death penalty to people, for no better reason than because they don't approve of their lifestyle?

And, on a side note, isn't it ironic that Kadaga was in Rome, leading a Ugandan delegation that "was in Rome to attend the 7th Consultative Assembly of Parliamentarians for the International Criminal Court and the World Parliamentary Conference on Human Rights"?

  • She was in the audience of a huge gathering. The pope didn't know her. Whatever you think, the Catholic Church is strongly against killing anyone for any reason .

    I can't make the link clickety on my IPad.

  • I thought it was pretty obvious by this point

  • I don't believe that the Pope had no idea that he was blessing a high-profile woman who wants to execute gays.  He's also been uncomfortably silent on their proposed laws, for someone who opposes "killing anyone for any reason".

  • I am sorry the page is jumping back and forth and I can not get to it to read it.
    I do not know the story but Catholics are against killing anyone. There are extreme cercumxtanstes in which it is allowed. This would not be one so I wish I could read the article.

  • As a Christian I believe God reserves the right to punish those who have sinned against Him. Surely if the Pope didn't know at the time he blessed this woman, then he probably knows now and should speak out against this.

  • he blessed her at that would be an "everyone in the room" type thing right? not her by name?

    still its very sad that he hasnt sad anything against the killing of gays by these ppl, especially since they do it in the name of Christianity.

  • Catholics are against killing anyone

    I would say history proves otherwise. I'd say maybe now they wouldn't because they wouldn't get away with it.

  • That is the Catholic Pope for ya! don't like him or his arrogance....

    Answer by older at 1:31 PM on Dec. 17, 2012

  • This is not an impersonal group blessing:

    Pope Benedict XVI gives his blessing to Rebecca Kadaga, Speaker of the Ugandan Parliament.
