    I respect this person more than his predecessors, but he is still the leader of an organization that has committed crimes, has discriminated and has been a negative influence for centuries. Hopefully he will turn the Vatican and the catholic church into more of what their prophet advocated, less old testament and more new testament.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Re: Pope Francis: Church can't 'interfere' with gays

    The Catholic Church has been hemorrhaging followers over the past 5-10 years due to the molestation scandals and the previous Pope's stance on many different social issues. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the last Pope stepped down due to lack of popularity.

    Now we have a Pope who is basically telling the Church to leave gays and lesbians alone.

    This is proof positive that the will of the People even works in an institution as old as the Vatican.

    Exactly. It was obvious as hell to me... wonder why someone as close as a mother couldn't see it?

    Pope Francis has given us all a reminder of what the Church should stand for. Less Fire-and-brimstone type preaching and instead showing a loving, caring, compassionate institution. As Christians we are supposed to be less eager to judge and condemn others and be more ready to love and understand aren't we?

    Really? My marriage seems to be going rather well even thought you and your ilk were telling me that gays getting married would destroy the institution of marriage.

    You bible thumpers are always clinging to fear as it seems to be the only thing you guys wake up in the morning for... to pray for the end of the world, and bitch about it at the same time.

    Or maybe you're an extremist. However, as we all know given your views on homosexuality, abortion and morality - that's just not possible.

    because he respects the individual?

    Well prove to me God exists and we can talk. Because if he did he would have already come back and dealt with the so called "Christians" and done away with them. I have never seen a worse group of people as a whole in my life. Bigots, racist, woman haters, they say it in god name and they don't judge but everytime they open their mouths something nasty comes out. Like George Carlin said "keep thy religion to yourself"

    ^^ This is why I implied you're a bigot. You're calling other human beings that have done nothing to you and have harmed nobody a "creeping evil" and "destroying our society".

    These have been the cries of every bigot in history, be it against the jews, the blacks, or even the gays.
