Pope Benedict: It's wrong to have homosexual relations, unless you work for me, in which case it can get you a promotion and a transfer to Rome.
Pope Benedict XVI has responded firmly to the first challenge of his papacy by condemning a Spanish government bill allowing marriage between homosexuals.
The bill, passed by parliament's Socialist-dominated lower house, also allows gay couples to adopt.
A senior Vatican official described the bill - which is likely to become law within a few months - as iniquitous.
He said Roman Catholic officials should be prepared to lose their jobs rather than co-operate with the law.
I hear he also gave them the option of sewing pink triangles on their clothing.
