Pope's remarks

• Pope Benedict has certainly upped the ante as regards gay marriage (Irish Independent, December 22).

Unfortunately, the Pontiff has an obsessive Augustinian attitude that the world is evil and is heading for destruction because of, among other issues, the acceptance by so many people that same-sex marriage is a valid human right in the search for happiness.

It is sad to see this increased exodus from the Catholic Church of good people who are scandalised by these personal views of Pope Benedict, of "the very nature of being, of what being human really is, being called into question" if one accepts gay marriage .
