Destroying God's Movie?

With budget overruns run amok, sniping amongst the crew, and everyone going off script, Key Grip Ratzinger is worried about the state of the production:

The pope said humanity needed to "listen to the language of creation" to understand the intended roles of man and woman. He compared behavior beyond traditional heterosexual relations as "a destruction of God's work."

He also defended the Church's right to "speak of human nature as man and woman, and ask that this order of creation be respected."
If I understand Key Grip Ratzinger properly, he means to say that the production will run short of extras for the final dramatic scene if we don't play the reproductive roles for which Director Jesus cast us.

I realize I'm knocking low-hanging fruit off the tree of knowledge here (and mixing a few metaphors), but don't nuns and priests live, in their abstinence-only cloisters, pretty far afield of nature? At least as much as gays, they do not "listen to the language of creation" inasmuch as they do not breed.

I remain unclear on what a key grip does, why he gets listed in the credits, and why we should care.
