The pope isn't right at all... Believing could be a good thing, but you should never become prejudice! Every person deserves the same rights!

"The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections." SCOTUS

The difference in our positions is that we want the same rights you have while you seek to deny us those rights you reserve for yourself. Denial of equality causes harm to those denied both directly through denial of legal equality and through the stigmatization and dehumanization that inescapably results from being worth less under the law.

Allowing gay people to participate under the same rules you apply to yourself does not take away any rights from you and therefore does not harm you and won't require any change in the rules and rights for straight people or their families.

Gay people are already forming families. Denial of the same rights you have won't change that fact. It will only harm those families. Yet allowing us the same opportunities you have won't harm you. Your position results in needless suffering, while ours harms no one. Stop harming us.

James Madison wrote:“It is of great importance in a republic not only to guard the society against the oppression of its rulers, but to guard one part of the society against the injustice of the other part … If a majority be united by a common interest, the rights of the minority will be insecure.”

Or as Jesse Ventura put it bluntly, "You can't put a civil rights issue on the ballot and let the people decide … If you left it up to the people, we'd have slavery, depending on how you worded it."

John Adams, the second U.S. president, stated that "the majority has eternally, and without one exception, usurped over the rights of the minority."

<quoted text>
Ah but it is you that is doing harm unto society and you rationalize your own frailties based on the failures of others time and time again. My marriage and family will never be based or relied upon the failures, subversion, and decadence of society. It is something that SHOULD be avoided at all costs, and cost it does.
You fail to demonstrate any of the harm you claim. All you have is irrational fear to support your refusal to treat others as you would yourself.
