    What an absurdity! Nothing changed, just foul wine in other bags….. The Pope did not say he accepts gay as a whole, he accepts gay people, they did before this Pope said it, sexual active gay people are still damned, they were before this Pope made his statement! Why did he stop investigations against abusing priests? Why did he not end the ban on condoms in Africa? Why did he not open the RCC for women in all functions and positions? Foul wine in middle aged bags!

    I would agree with her but then we’d both be wrong.

    Naive or what?

    Maybe I was listening to a different Pope Francis.

  3. *sigh*
    I wish people would look into what the Pope actually said, and perhaps more importantly *why* he said it.
    First of all, he’s not promoting equality, but celibacy. He wants homosexuals to live as virgins like himself, or as heterosexuals and oppress their nature.
    And why? Well the church is under a lot of pressure from a number of areas. It’s dying fast in Europe. In Latin America where it holds the most influence, an Evangelical Christian movement is growing, and society (over a number of civilized nations) are growing more and more accepting of the GLBT community. Every day Catholics are starting to see the big gap between their church and themselves, the majority of them in the US, support same sex marriage, for instance. As they do in the UK. The church faces huge issues, and they felt they needed to make this little PR stunt, but they have not changed their stance on same sex relations, let alone marriage.

  4. No, they’re NOT.

    The comments amount to: “You are an evil sinner, but we must put up with that, even if you’re evil. PS, don’t have it off”

    Terrific? What planet is she living on? Our relationships are still regarded as disordered. The fact of the matter is, as long as his cult continues to traduce our loving relationships as sinful, then he is indeed judging us.

    Crass stupid cow……

  7. The ONLY thing ze should accept fronm the Catholic church and any of its leaders is a public apology for the centuries of hate, murders, intimidation on various communities and substancial damages as reparation for their crimes against humanity. Anything less is just PR and a travesty. Or both, that usually go hand in hand. An ennemy yesterday can NEVER be your friend tomorrow.

  8. How blind can you be……!!!
    The Pope is not negative; Halleluja! And so many of us start proclaming almost that the New Grand Bigot is endorsing us…..
