In a revealing interview published in multiple Jesuit publications, including America magazine, the Pope appeared to back away from the church’s frequent focus on issues of sexuality and reproduction. “We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods,” he said. “But when we speak about these issues, we have to talk about them in a context. The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.”

Pope Francis also challenged Catholic attitudes about homosexuality.

“In Buenos Aires I used to receive letters from homosexual persons who are ‘socially wounded’ because they tell me that they feel like the church has always condemned them. But the church does not want to do this,” the Pope said before restating his unprecedented July comments about not judging gay people. “Religion has the right to express its opinion in the service of the people, but God in creation has set us free: it is not possible to interfere spiritually in the life of a person.”

One thought on “Pope Francis Expresses Tolerance Of Gays, Support For Women

  1. Wow! This is the same church that uses the Holy Bible to enslave African people (my ancestors) ; this is the same church that was in bed with the mafia in Italy and around the world. These people cannot surprise me one bit. The main reason why they force “Pope Benedict” to retire was that the rich white people wanted someone who is gay to be the pontiff, so he can use the Catholic Church to launch his immorality. We know that these people are not morally inclined to do the righteous things.

    I hope with this turn by the Catholic Church, those who knew that the RECTUM IS NOT A SEX ORGAN, it is for shitting and shit stink and infectious,will leave the Catholic Church in droves.

    So, the homosexuals have been very successful in tearing down institutions that supposed to be a vehicle to help people in the world to look to for moral guidance..

    From I was a child my mother use to tell me that Jesus Christ was not a white man, or Moses or any of the righteous men . She said that the whites are thieves, that they stole Jesus Christ and claimed him, when they know that he was a blackman.
