Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict has again vilified same-sex marriage, claiming that it threatens the traditional family and undermines the future of humanity.

Speaking to diplomats from 180 countries accredited to the Vatican, Benedict on Monday warned of the dire consequences of gay and lesbian marriage.”

He said that children need to be taught that “pride of place goes to the family, based on the marriage of a man and a woman”.

Benedict insisted that “this is not a simple social convention, but rather the fundamental cell of every society.

“Consequently, policies which undermine the family threaten human dignity and the future of humanity itself,” he said.

The Roman Catholic Church has vocally opposed efforts to legalise same-sex marriage across the globe.

The Pope has previously stated that homosexuality and same-sex unions are a threat to the survival of humanity. In December 2008 he warned that a “blurring” of genders could lead to the end of the human race.
