    Pope Francis on gays: `Who am I to judge?'[W:65,239]

    Pope Francis on gays: `Who am I to judge?' – CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs

    ABOARD THE PAPAL AIRPLANE (CNN) –Pope Francis said Monday that he will not "judge" gays and lesbians - including gay priests - signaling a shift from his predecessor and offering another sign that the new pope is committed to changing the church's approach to historically marginalized groups.
    “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis said in a wide-ranging news conference aboard the papal plane.
    Francis continues to distance himself from Benedict. Thoughts?

    All they've done is brought in someone slightly more liberal in order to do damage control because the Church was hemorrhaging followers after the last guy. The Church's stance on homosexuals has been made quite clear for over half a century now so they should stop pretending to be all progressive.

    Doesn't change the fact that homosexual sex is a sin and an abomination

    Hate the sin. Not the sinner.

    The point that most people who scream tolerance forget. It isn't about the homosexual, it is about homosexuality and the fact that it is sin.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    How is that really being wishy-washy? He didn't come out and say that homosexual behavior isn't sinful, but that those who have homosexual tendency and accept God and act with good will should not be marginalized.

    Not marginalizing someone, not even based on them sinning, but possibly having a tendency toward sin is being wishy washy?

    Yeah he is not condoning homosexuality, just distancing himself from the allegations of hypocrisy over the creeper priests amongst them.

    Who is he to Judge? I thought he was God's representative on earth being the Pope and all. Is he going to not be the person to judge any sin whatsoever? Are we to construe this as to mean that God, through his representative, has declared sin no longer relevant to salvation? Is this like a free day in gym class where we can do whatever we want or is it more like book amnesty day so no matter how many decades you have had the book, the library won't fine you if you return it?

    sex is a sin, unless you are married. Let them get married here on earth, then take it up with God later. He dont need our help.
