    ROME (Reuters) - Pope Benedict, in his first clear pronouncement on gay marriages since his election, on Monday condemned same-sex unions as fake and expressions of "anarchic freedom" that threatened the future of the family.

    The Pope, who was elected in April, also condemned divorce, artificial birth control, trial marriages and free-style unions, saying all of these practices were dangerous for the family.

    With the exception of birth control, he's right in line with most Protestants.

    Considering he was Pope John Paul's chief counsel in doctrinal policies not at all.

    I'd love President Bush to issue an "I Concur" :)
