Priest says Italy quakes was a ‘Divine Punishment’ for gay civil unions

Italy has suffered some of its worst earthquakes in years leaving hundreds dead and thousands homeless. A catholic priest, Father Giovanni Cavalcoli said the natural disasters are 'divine punishment' for same-sex civil unions 'offending the family' and the 'dignity of marriage'.

He made the comments on radio on the day central Italy was hit by a 6.6 quake, its worst in 36 years. It was the third major quake in the same region in just over two months. Radio Maria where the priest made outrageous claim has hurriedly distanced itself from his comments and the Vatican has hit out at the views, saying the idea of a vengeful God was 'a pagan vision' dating from 'the pre-Christian era'.

Archbishop Angelo Becciu, number two in the Vatican's powerful Secretariat of State, said Cavalcoli's comments were 'offensive to believers and disgraceful for non-believers', he also asked the forgiveness of quake victims and told them they had the 'solidarity and support' of Pope Francis.
The offending priest has however stuck to his guns.

He insisted on another radio station that earthquakes were indeed caused by 'the sins of man' and told the Vatican to 'read their catechism'.
Legislation in Italy allowing gay civil partnerships was brought in last month, making it the last country in Western Europe to legally recognise same-sex relationships.

This is the position of the church and I stand with the church and not a comment by a misinformed priest.

So a community of heterosexual, young and old, male and female, is devastated by a natural disaster, and this pedophile, gluttonous, dress wearing, miserable, bastard, worshipper of the devil, sees it a an opportunity to attack gay people?

Death, being politicised? As is natural disasters are a new thing? Heartless and disgusting. Go and ask those before you, fat slob, whether it pays to come for gay people, when we haven't sent for you!

The Catholic Church can apologies, but we've had enough of your crap, keep apologising instead of fixing your lies, in your synagogues of debauchery, excess and perversion!

He said the truth, they're the cause of all these environmental catastrophe.
God hates that act more than anything else. No matter how much the gays try to twist it, but the truth remains that it is the only act that caused God to burn down a city.

Shut up. Ure so full of hatred. Why insult the church in that manner? Express yourself like a human being with any sembalance of civility and not like a twerp. You're just as disguting and deluded as the priest.

Did God destroy Sodom and Gomorrah because of fornication, murder and stealing???? Isn't that enough proof to show that homosexuality does worry God?

You're a bastard, is the Catholic Church a person? They attack people, how is that comparative to attacking institutions that promote hatred, and claim their doing "god's work".

You haven't seen hate yet, you fucking stupid piece of shit, don't you ever, jump on my comments ever again, with your senseless none arguments.

You're the one full of hate, supporting those who use your stupid god as a heartless excuse in justifying tragedy and attacks on people.

Fuck.Off
