    Are these people fighting for equal rights?

    They're not fighting for equal rights: they're pushing for everyone to accept their lifestyle. That's not tolerance.

    Actually, if you believe that discrimination laws should exist for any class, you should believe that they should protect gays as well. Why is refusing to serve a black guy worse than refusing to serve a homosexual?

    Then you should argue against them as a whole instead of just for classes you don't like.

    So, with only a few months of experience,
    how does this Pope rank amongst all others?

    I am not going to look at all others, but compared to Benedict and John I believe that Francis is taking the Catholic Church in the direction that it needs to go.

    The Church will gain more members by helping the poor, sick and disadvantaged than it ever will by trying to fight contraception, abortion , and gay marriage.

    The Church should focus on what it can reasonably expect to succeed in doing if it wants to grow and survive.

    I do, but we're not talking about that here, are we?

    That's exactly what the new Pope is saying, and why he's what the Catholics need just now.
