    Homosexual sex will always be a filthy sin. An abomination.

    A Pope is never going to change that

    Little you know.

    So you take the story literal, even though Jesus seldom talked in parodies. Frankly, if you talk to the Catholic Church, they're not so literal. If there is any genetic component, then God most certainly made Adam and Steve, so to speak.

    Ever play the child's game of whispering a sentence into another's ear all the way around the circle to see what the final version is? do that for 5,000 years before the first written record and see what you get.

    My thought is the Bible is a good book but not THE word of GAWD.

    As far as who the Church should embrace or shun.... Seems I heard one of the closest people to Jesus was a female prostitute. I have also heard all manner of sinners are embraced by the Church. Those drunks and cheats, druggies and hookers, murderers and wife beaters- even politicians and IRS workers...

    Why those who don't want to sleep with the opposite sex are singled out for a special admonition over those who break the Holy vows of marriage is something I don't quite understand...
    Don't know who Gawd is, I agree the Bible is not the word of Gawd (whoever that is).

    Good thing I'm not catholic. That being said, Genesis is quite literal.

    Isn't the Pope the King of Catholics on Earth?

    Look I don't disparage religions very much even though I'm about as none religion as they come, but something about having a Pope always bothered me, and lead me to question the very idea of religion in general. In some ways the concept of a Pope was what caused me to reject religion. That and a myriad of other things, but that was one of them.

    Genesis is more than religious text, it is the Word of God.
