Pope: Who am I to judge gay people?

Pope Francis has said gay people should not be judged or marginalised.
Speaking to reporters on a flight back from Brazil, he said: "If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge him?"

He also referred to the teachings of the Roman Catholic church, which say that while homosexual acts are sinful, homosexual orientation is not.

The Pope's remarks are being seen as much more conciliatory than his predecessor's position on the issue.

Bigotry is slowly dying out in America.

Why, I'm old enough to remember back when Smart Liberal and Consistent said that gay marriage didn't have a chance in Minnesota.

The bigots lose another one.

This popes stance on homosexuality is no different than any other. Being gay is fine. Sex without marriage is a no no. Gays can't get married, hence their acts are sinful by church standards. It's no different than is has been for some time. And, right or wrong, it's not that complicated either.

I agree with the last two statements. They are quite correct.

However, blaming all republicans for s few right wing holy rolling zealots is neither fair nor particularly intelligent.

That's like blaming all democrats for the likes of the hard core left wing contingents that believe that we should become a socialist country, take away all cars, and enforce by law a vegan lifestyle for all Americans.

I can see, anyone who calls themselves "true Christians" is ONLY fooling yourself.

If honey slew slew is not a mod/admin, then it's just a matter of logistics. I'll bet by choosing to delete all of those posts between certain dates in one fell swoop, because they contain the least actual content, it frees up at least a half a terabyte of disk space at a time.

The seattle troll is too dumb for a mod job, even for Topix. My point was, it tries to chastise others for behavior that is the very definition of itself. And WAY too dumb and obnoxious for any position of responsibility, anywhere.

You are absolutely correct about he/she/its continuous accusations towards posters behavior that is really a reflection of he/she/its own behavior.
It is generally "pot/kettle/blacked" by a factor of at least 10 squared.
See this recent post below for a perfect example.

Note the improper use of tense, and the unnecessary use of a space before the question mark.(not to mention the notorious misuse and abuse of commas that often characterizes this creatures posts)

"...have any of you hear of women ?"

Oh, and I would hardly consider "paid troll" a position of responsibility. Would you?

Ahhh....no. But I also don't think anyone would pay it.

I think it just wants attention but it has vacant social skills and falls back on its natural tendencies to attack posters it doesn't understand.

Your example is a good one(and one I was going to cite) but the one after it is typical as well. The hits just keep comin'.

Oops.. I guess the troll's post I referred to was deleted(along with#24).

No worries, it comes up with another gem. The gift that keeps on giving.
