Benedict XVI has already nailed his colors to the mast. The first act of his papacy has been to condemn a Spanish government bill that will allow marriage between homosexuals. The bill will also allow gay couples to adopt, and marks a significant step in the secularisation of what was once one of Europe's most devoutly Roman Catholic countries.
I am a heterosexual, but I firmly believe that religion should have nothing to do with government. I see no wrong in allowing homosexual couples to be married, although I personally believe allowing such couples to adopt children is unwise. Faith should be a personal thing, not a national thing.
