“Gay people represent a real threat, by their very existence, to Pope Benedict's theology. He is insistent that humans are gendered male and female by God's design and that an integral part of this is being heterosexual. (According to Benedict, we even retain our genders in heaven). But if that's true, why would homosexuality exist at all? Why would many human beings have been born that way? In all cultures, in all times? When you are wrapped up in such incoherence, when your theology is simply disproved by reality, you can change your theology, or you can close your eyes, put your fingers in your ears, and sing loudly.”
