The Pope, gay marriage and "pro-life" medical professionals.

And what a serendipitous bit of timing this is. Following a link from Atrios, we have Pope "Joey Rats" Benedict XVI coming down hard on a Spanish government bill allowing gay marriage. But that's not the interesting part. Here's the interesting part:

He said Roman Catholic officials should be prepared to lose their jobs rather than co-operate with the law...

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

What a fascinating concession -- that if Catholics want to follow their conscience, they should be prepared to lose their jobs. One wonders what kind of defense Catholic "pro-life" pharmacists are going to use once you point out the Pope's own position.
