Catholic churches across the globe have these little rooms where people go to to seek to resolve their sins. They are called 'confessionals' and their clergy sit daily in 'judgement' and help people resolve those sinse, find peace and healing, and move forward. Who is he to 'judge' sin? Ummmm....I dont know...the holy see, the father of fathers, the leader of a church with a foundation in a belief of forgiveness of sin by admitting, confessing, and resolving said sin...
The Pontiff has stated nothing new. Roman Catholics aren't supposed to pronounce judgement on someone, while at the same time not condone someone's actions.
Homosexual sex IS a sin and an abomination. Have you read The Bible?
Judgement and condemnation is between the sodomite and God. A lot of people here seem to think that the Pope is condoning homosexual sex. He's not.
