Pope is cool with gays?
I don't care for anything Catholic and I find any type of religious hierarchy to be a despot of tyranny and hypocripsy above all others. But the new pope does make me smirk for a few seconds. It's fun to watch religious thinking evolve and then watch how all the sheep fawn over their leader's new "radical" ideas as if he really was the omnipotent presence here on earth. Either way...

And yet another interesting topic I am not interested in.

Heard that on the radio earlier...his popeness is certainly easier to get along with now compared with the popeness I was supposedly following years ago.

Fuck that bastard and his passive aggressive stand!! He actively and publicly condemned gays when our gay marriage law was being debated in congress, he judges and marginalizes gays every opportunity he has, he pressed the French government to stop a gay marriage bill in the name of "morality"...

This guy is even worse than the previous one, at least Benedict wasn't so outspoken and had a low profile... This one plays the media really well but his intentions aren't nearly as "merciful" as he says

RE: Pope is cool with gays?
Anyone watch Bob Simon's piece on 60 Minutes yesterday ? He's still determined to keep the nuns "in their place". They will never consider ordaining women. If he calls off his dog (the archbishop from Oregon), who's stalking the nuns I might give him a little credit. He's a good PR guy. That's the only difference. Nothing of substance has changed. The US Conf of Cathoilc Bishops, is still the biggest set of pedophile hiding jerk-offs on the planet. The Vatican remains rotten to the core. No wonder though, this guy is afraid to live in the Papal apartments. At this rate, they will "off" him too, like they did JP-I.

I thought he publicly denounced gays a couple of weeks ago. Sorry, I'm not going to buy it until I see some changes for the better. Frankly, I think Francis is just as corrupt as his predecessors.

Hands up who thinks the Catholic church are going to do any of the following:
- Perform gay marriages
- Allow gays to be teachers in their schools
- Perform full funeral rites for gay members
- Allow gays to adopt children from their orphanage
- Start preaching from the pulpit that Gay is OK

Probably never gonna happen, but the Vatican still teaches Africans that condom use increases the chance of pregnancy and HIV, so I don't really care what they say about homosexuality.

Credit where credit is due he is moving the church in the right direction. Of course it's not going to bring me back into 'the fold.' Also while I can't help but commend him for his progressiveness the churches hard line on sexuality was/is one the major contributors to it's demise so there is a very real possibility that this may actually help with recruitment. I think it's probably a strategic move, relax the faith, bring in some new blood, extract cash...

It does appear to be just PR thing. To get the fence sitters back on their side and to reinforce the indoctrination. Every time I tell myself to give my family's religion a chance something like this happens and reminds me how bad the actual religion is. Insidious poison is what it is.

I'd be more interested in him speaking out against the pedophile priests and trying to reconcile with the victims that have had their lives ruined by the Catholic Church.
