(BlogMensGo, 22 August 2011) The Pope has been in Madrid peddling his homophobic beliefs again.  Unfortunately (for him) he had to cut his speech short when a thunderstorm hit Madrid on Saturday night.

PinkPaper and Agence France-Presse report that strong winds and sheets of rain hit the air base Cuantro Vientos where Pope Benedict XVI was speaking, blowing off his skullcap and shaking the stage.

It is reported that 1,5 million people gathered to listen to his speech where he proclaimed marriage to be a union between a man and a woman only.  He managed to squeeze in ‘The Lord calls many people to marriage, in which a man and a woman, in becoming one flesh, find fulfillment in a profound life of communion’.  This was the final speech of his 4 day tour.

Hundreds of gays and lesbians had planned a kiss-in protest against the pope and his speech but were foiled by police, although, its believed that one couple managed to kiss in front of the pope’s vehicle.

In 2005, marriage between same sex parties was legalised but the catholic church has called for the government to outlaw this again as the Pope said last year that such marriage is a confusion to society’s values.

They say the lord works in mysterious ways....I am sure the Pope will not take the hint!
