The Pope: ‘Gay people are not fully developed humans’

Lady Gaga has urged people to ‘ignore The Pope’ after he said gay people are not fully developed, as they do not follow the Catholic law.

Pope Benedict XVI has caused a controversy by saying that gay people are not fully developed as they don’t follow the Catholic law.

Whilst speaking to bishops about French President Francois Hollande’s plans to legalise marriage equality, the head of the Catholic Church said, ‘The family is threatened in many places by a defection of human nature…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.’

The Pope believes that if the Catholic values of marriage and the family are not obeyed, then it will hinder ‘the full development of the human person’.

Lady Gaga has told people to ‘ignore The Pope’

A prominent voice of opposition to The Popes words has materalised in the form of popstar, Lady Gaga, who told people to ignore the German religious leaders views. ‘What the Pope thinks of being gay does not matter,’ she said, ‘It doesn’t matter to the world. It matters to the people who like the Pope and follow the Pope.’

‘It’s not a reflection of all Christians. It is not a reflection of all religious people. It’s a point of view of one person…And to all the gay people here, may you live and love each other until the end of time. I hope you will have the human right to breed as an entirely equal, valuable and special member of society.’

Catholics in France have stepped up their campaign against equal marriage by reviving a centuries-old ‘Prayer For France’ day, which attacks the Governments plans to legalise gay marriage and adoption by same-sex couples. This comes after The Pope, in January this year, said that same-sex marriage ‘threatens human dignity and the future of humanity itself’.
