Meh, if he was cool with gays then he would abolish the BS regulations against them.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

Lagging behind a bit?

That's like your friend getting super excited because he just upgraded his computer from DOS 1.0 to DOS 1.1.

Scoff if you like, but now that double-sided floppies are supported I can fit over 300kb on a single disk.

Cool

Well it's no surprise no one is really amused by the spectale. I feel the same way as many of you. His opinion doesn't influence me one bit, but he does influence voters, and consdering the Catholic numbers in this country, that's just more momentum for legislation against lgbt discrination. (Coming from a guy, who when he gets out of the military in 2 years, will possibly be working for a company that can fire me for such a reason).

And yet another interesting topic I am not interested in.

Evolution ain't fast, nor clever. It took us more than a few hundred years to go from being stuck swimming in the oceans to breathing oxygen devoid of hydrogen on land. Wink Baby steps. They'll get there.

Yes, he flip-flopped on this. But what he says now is true.
He litterally said: Who am I to judge them?
And that is absolutely true.
He is not the one to judge them. The bible states god does that.
But since god is not real, no one needs to judge.

That and the majority of people support homosexuality in the western world.

Please folks. There is no change in policy (let alone doctrine) at all.

Out of context + wishful thinking.

This is what really annoys me. The media keeps trying to portray Pope Francis as a doctrine revolutionary when he really is just the same as all the other popes. He is only a political revolutionary (he wants to entirely reform the curia, the administrative part of the Vatican).

I'm homophobic in the same way that I'm arachnophobic. I'm not scared of gay people but I'm going to scream if I find one in my bath.

I'm. Also homophobic in the same way I'm arachnophobic. I'm scared of spiders but I'd still fuck'em.

Why would you "find" someone in your bath if you didn't invite them there ?

Onion News Wrote:“Homosexuality is a disorder. And this in no way means that, going forward, the Catholic Church will be an open-minded, more sensible organization. I assure you we are just as prejudiced and backward today as we were yesterday. Thank you.” According to an anonymous source close to the Vatican, the Pope is currently being yelled at by Church officials, who are telling him, “You don’t just go off script like that. Who the fuck do you think you are?”

ROFL

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...

It changes nothing. Honestly, I think he was just side-stepping a question about gay priests because, if he condemned them, he would next be asked why they are still allowed to preach. And, for a church that won't even get rid of pedophiles, they certainly won't get rid of gay priests.
