Vatican City, December 21 - The pope again attacked
gay marriage in his Christmas greeting to the Curia on Friday.
Benedict XVI defended as God's natural design the notion of
family founded on the marriage of a man and a woman, without
whom "figures fundamental to human existence disappear: the
father, the mother, the child" and without whom "essential
dimensions of the experience of being a person fall".
He called the recent statement of France's chief rabbi
Gille Bernheim, which argued against gay marriage and was
delivered to the French government, "a profoundly touching and
accurately documented tract".
A week ago Benedict caused a stir by saying gay marriage
could cause "serious harm to justice and peace".
In his Friday message to the Curia the pope also said he
supported inter-religious dialogue as "necessary for peace in
this world".
