Happy Holidays From The Pope, Unless You're Different

Sutherland Institute, via my inbox, is spreading Pope Benedict's message of "love" this holiday season:

In Pope Benedict XVI's message for the new year, he focuses on the importance of the natural family and what it represents. "The natural family, as an intimate communion of life and love, based on marriage between a man and a woman, constitutes 'the primary place of 'humanization' for the person and society', and a 'cradle of life and love'. The family is therefore rightly defined as the first natural society, 'a divine institution that stands at the foundation of life of the human person as the prototype of every social order'."
There seems something decidedly un-Christian in the use of a goodwill holiday message as an opportunity to divide and marginalize millions of families just days before Christmas.

Maybe that's just me.
