Eh, more of the same ole, but the last paragraph deserves comment. From BreakingNews.iol.ie:
 
 
 
Elton and Furnish slam Pope's 'homophobia'
30/11/2005 - 08:22:40
 
 
Elton John and partner David Furnish have blasted Pope Benedict XVI for his stance on homosexuality - ahead of their gay marriage next month.
 
The pair are bracing themselves for a Catholic backlash when they exchange vows in England next month, but also criticise the pontiff for his controversial views on contraception.
 
John says: "He's endorsing genocide, basically, by saying what he says about AIDS and restricting the use of condoms."
 
Quote:Yes, if everyone obeyed the Pope's message of abstinence outside of marriage, there'd be bodies in the streets. "Send out your dead! Send out your dead!"
 
But the couple are determined to go ahead with the same-sex civil marriage on the day it is made legal in Britain (December 5), despite both the papal opposition and condemnation from the US.
 
Furnish says: "The dissenting voices are part of the reason that we are doing this thing. The extremism in America is getting more and more polarised. The Pope is very openly anti-gay."
 
Quote:Their political agenda is "the reason" they are "doing this thing." "Doing this thing" -- isn't it romantic?!

I think they know exactly what they do, and are working more on final impenitence, hardened as they are in their sin.
