The Pope Is Sticking Up For Gays Again! What He's Saying Now That Now Has Ultra-Conservatives Angry!

Wow! This is truly a step in the right direction!

Pope Francis, who just might be the coolest Pope EVER, is once again discussing his own views on gays, and we're pretty stoked to hear what he had to say!

When asked if he approved of homosexuality or not, Pope Francis replied:

"Tell me: when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person? We must always consider the person."

Pope Francis also said earlier this year that he does not judge gay people, because who is he to judge anyone!

Well, you're the Pope. That's nothing to sneeze at buddy! You're kind of a big deal!

But in his latest interview, the Pope frankly faulted the Catholic Church for its condemnation of LGBT individuals, as well as abortion and contraceptive use. According to him, close-mindedness is only going to hurt the faith in the long run. He explained:

"The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently. We have to find a new balance, otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.”

In other words, worry about yourselves people and leave everyone else alone!

Francis' free thinking has many of his ultra-conservative subordinates within the Church calling foul though! To them, these are important issues that must be spoken out against! But the Pope remains steadfast in his "live and let live" mentality. He continued, saying:

"I have never been a right-winger. It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time. This church with which we should be thinking is the home of all, not a small chapel that can hold only a small group of selected people."

Well put, Pope! Well put!

    Isn't the Pope's massive penthouse complex on top of Europe's largest Gay Bathhouse?

    ROFL. He's not sticking up for you queers. He's telling his flock that it's god's place to judge you freaks, but he's not going to backtrack on the church's position that homosexuality is gross and dead wrong. You obviously have reading comprehension issues, and have a tendency to spin things to suit your agenda, no matter how off base your spin is. You're a total piece of shit.

    Re: The Truthinator – Not taking your pills make you say very strange things.

  5. Hypocrites says – reply to this


    The catholic church is so hypocritical. If you are going to call yourself religious, you shouldn't be approving of something that goes against the Bible, and accepting homosexuals goes against what it teaches. I don't have anything against gay people, but I do have something against hypocrites, and the Catholic church is one of the biggest.

    this Pope seems to want it both ways. the ultimate judgement is Gods. God will not be kind to the Catholic Church. homosexuality is an abomination before the Lord. what part of that confuses you freaks?

  7. LetsBeHonest says – reply to this


    Yeaaaa I don't listen to catholic crap, they claim to be saints that never sin but go around molesting children and having sex with women. DON'T YOU GUYS KNOW THE ONLY ONE WHO IS PERFECT ENOUGH TO ANSWER THIS IS CHRIST HIMSELF!!

  8. LetsBeHonest says – reply to this



    Lev. 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."

    Lev. 20:13, "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them"

    Re: Hypocrites – I'm sorry, but the Bible contradicts itself, so I wouldn't necessarily take everything it says literally. Secondly, popular Christianity interpretation is flawed in the sense that it promotes being charitable and kind, yet condemns homosexuals to an afterlife in hell, disregarding the fact that they could potentially be good people who follow the Bible (other than the sexuality bit, hehe). Therefore, it would be most sensible for the fanatical, mainly southern, Christians to keep their opinion to themselves, rather than spread endless hate towards others of different beliefs. PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH!

    I truly believe religion is dying off. My parents came to the West from Europe with strict catholic values in the 1990's… now they don't go to church and are lenient on drugs, swearing and lot's of other things that religion disapproves of. You will all see that because the world is progressing, religious people will one day too (and it's clearly already happening)

    Re: LetsBeHonest – actually that means that you should not treat a man as you treat a woman, it's the bible, it's not meant to be taken literally

  12. Born Again in Christ says – reply to this


    If you are posting on this as a Christian who loves Jesus, please do not call people names such as "freaks". Christians are called to be Christ-like and the most loving people in the world. Should we tell people that they are wrong and sinners? Of course because it is the word of God and people need to know where they are headed (hell) if they do not repent and love the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are a christian who takes the bible seriously it is perfectly natural to disagree with the Pope and back it up with Scripture (1 Corinthians 6:9-11) but do not act self righteous and insult people who are not saved and know nothing about the bible or God's character.

  13. No more bullshit says – reply to this


    It just amazes me how many of you "christians" are ready to quote the bible, but none of you follow it to the letter like you expect others to do. If you did, you'd keep your mouth shut and live your life - but no - you call people freaks and "a total piece of shit" and you think you're so damn holy in gods eyes that he's gonna thank you for dictating his rules instead of letting him be the judge. Screw all of you.
    When you learn to follow the bible that you rub in others noses, you will have to keep your mouth shut unless you have something nice to say - and I'm betting none of you bigots have the mental restraint to do it even one day.
    You don't like the gay lifestyle - then don't be gay - but stop the preaching about how everyone else should be your clone, and stop reading only parts of the bible - either read and follow it all or shut the hell up.

    That's not really what he said, i read the original italian interview. He didn't say he doesn't believe abortion and homosexual behaviour are wrong, he just said it's hurting the Church to keep on talking about it and that there are other issues to take care of.

  15. LeggoMyLeggoBitch says – reply to this


    Yah. there's other issues like telling christian women that the man is the head of the christian household.

  16. 16

    For some reason I thought the Pope's name was Benedict, must have missed something.

    Re: The Truthinator – I agree. HIV/AIDS is prevalent because of these disgusting creatures!

  18. caravaggio the truth says – reply to this


    Ahh yes, the BLACK POPE. That's right, one of two BLACK POPES in the Vatican right now. Never been done before. Very dangerous and very scary. Beware of the Vatican Bank Papal Bull coming to us all at a currency collapse near you! Ohh this is about the gay agenda? My bad.

  19. The Bible Truth says – reply to this


    Ok , so all of u who say the bible says being gay is wrong, have u read the entire bible? Do u have your sideburns above your temples? well if u have read the bible literally, your going to hell too!!!!!! for hai'ving your sideburns above your temples, y do u think some jes have their curls below the temples, because of that. So probably above 90% of men are going to rott in hell¡¡¡¡, Also, do you think god is perfect? cus I do…… Is non forgiveness a petty human feeling perfect? I dont think so, quit, putting your personal shortcomings as god-s attributes cus theyre not!
