Gay militant group slams Pope’s remarks on homosexual “marriage”

.- Joe Solmonese, President of the gay militant organization “Human Rights Campaign” (HRC), issued a statement yesterday criticizing Pope Benedict XVI for his remarks against same-sex “marriage.”

“It is unfortunate that the pope would choose so early in his pontificate to sweepingly condemn so many faithful Catholics,” said Solmonese, who went on to say that the Holy Father’s words contribute to “divide his followers.”

On Monday, during a conference on Family and the Church, Pope Benedict, in talking about marriage equality the pope referenced "pseudo-matrimonies" and said, “Matrimony and the family are not, in reality, a casual sociological construction or the fruit of specific historic and economic situations.”

Solmonese said these remarks were “anti-gay.”
