Defiant Edict

It didn't take long for the new pope to take off the kid gloves, as he vehemently opposes matters related to sex:

Pope Benedict XVI has responded firmly to the first challenge of his papacy by condemning a Spanish government bill allowing marriage between homosexuals.

Interviewed in the Italian newspaper, Corriere de la Serra, Cardinal Lopez Trujillo said the Church was making an urgent call for freedom of conscience for Roman Catholics and appealing to them to resist the law.

He said every profession linked with implementing homosexual marriages should oppose it, even if it meant losing their jobs.

Though it has championed the poor and condemned war, I don't recall the Vatican being as adamant to the point of urging public officials to resist the law even if they lose their jobs.

I wonder how his Holiness would react if the head of another state openly urged Catholics to defy the Vatican's stance on condom use to curb the spread of AIDS?
