Pope Benedict XVI told French bishops on Friday, "Marriage and the family are institutions that must be promoted and defended from every possible misrepresentation of their true nature, since whatever is injurious to them is injurious to society itself."

It must. We are not actually equal humanity if we are not allowed to freely love one another. "What the Pope thinks of being gay does not matter to the world. It matters to the people who like the Pope and follow the Pope.
It is not a reflection of all religious people," Gaga said. The controversial star has upset church leaders in the past by dressing as a nun, swallowing rosaries and using religious symbols in her act.
