Views of Pope Benedict XVI on gay sex
Pope has said that using artificial contraception is ''banalisation” of human body and allowing children to be adopted by persons living in such unions (free unions, trial marriages and same sex marriages) would actually mean doing violence to them.
Pope Benedict XVI has recently said that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour was just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction.
Pope Benedict’s opposition to homosexuality is a longstanding commitment. He has spoken frequently about his concern over homosexuality and holds that gay unions are immoral. In his speeches he has made it clear that he intends to pursue the orthodox defence of traditional Catholic teachings.


Here are some samples the strong language he has used in his utterances and views while opposing same-sex marriage and other sexual orientations.


  • Same-sex marriages are ’’pseudo-matrimony”
  • The dissolution of matrimony in the form of free unions, trial marriages and same sex marriages are expressions of an anarchic freedom
  • Using artificial contraception is ’’banalisation of the human body
  • Allowing children to be adopted by persons living in such unions (free unions, trial marriages and same sex marriages) would actually mean doing violence to these children, in the sense that their condition of dependency would be used to place them in an environment that is not conducive to their full human development.
  • It is only in the marital relationship that the use of the sexual faculty can be morally good. A person engaging in homosexual behavior therefore acts immorally
  • Those who engage in homosexual activity, confirm within themselves a disordered sexual inclination which is essentially self-indulgent
  • Homosexual relationship is a destruction of God’s work”.
  • In marriages listen to the language of creation
  • Humans need to speak of human nature as man and woman, and ask that this order of creation be respected”.
  • Same sex marriages are auto destruction of mankind


But there is fierce opposition to the utterances of the Pope. For example, Charles Martel, a Catholic layman who serves on the board of the Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry, a Massachusetts organisation said, “The Pope is creating a dangerous climate of inciting hatred towards gays and lesbians, and needs to be held accountable in attempting to encourage civil societies to perpetuate this prejudice.”
