We don't pay much attention to Saul the heretic. But then, we aren't followers of Saulianity.

We have far more authoritative words which give us the criteria which will be used to separate the sheep from the goats.

Perhaps you're acquainted with them?

Matthew 25:31-45

I'll take Matthew as a valid authority over Saul the heretic every day of the week and twice on Saturday.

I disagree. I know many Catholics who left and became Protestants. Including my father and his older brother (both became Lutherans). I've met many other former Catholics who finally "SAW THE LIGHT".
And you would be wrong. I never said it was not possible, as I did it myself, but that did not make it any less wrenching.

I suspect that, as a former Catholic, I know about more about how it feels for many Catholics.

And I know a great number of gay people who are still in the Church.

What a pathetic liar you are, all you fools pray for is what you want. You say you'll pray for someone, but the only reason is you think it will make you feel good and boost your deluded ego. Problem is it never happens for you, then again you are all mentally inadequate in believing in such insane bullshit.
You can be sure 99.9% of those who believe this violent load of destructive rubbish, have never ever done a real investigation to see if any of it is true. When you put the real acts to them,, they refuse to listen, deny what it's real and state no matter how much overwhelming evidence is against their insanity, historically and currently, they will still deny it.
Being a part of the most violent gun crazy god nutter christian country, the good ole USA, it's no wonder you're in denial. You countries a basket case of massacres and violence, all revolving round you insane god cult.
Truth and fact are way outside your comprehension ability, aren't they.

He was excommunicated for giving communion to a dog. Not because of his views on gays.

I feel sorry for them and pray that they will see the light and leave.

if the catholic church is to allow gay sex, they would be in contradiction of the BIBLE. Nothing to do with law. Everything to do with the BIBLE.

Tell me do you find it hard to hide the fact that your gay?

In the RCC, they KNOW how "the bible" came to be written. It is referred to as their "first tradition".

Do a little reading on how the various "Canons" of the writings came to be. Even Wikipedia is a good beginning. The footnotes and references are sound. You can check them.

The Pope? The leader of one of the most corrupt, sexist and backward organisations in the west? That dirtbag? The same one. I would listen to the water draining down my toilet after a hangover dump before listening to anything that face of criminality has to say. The Pope? What a joke

Do you real think any sane person would want to read such crap, all you're doing is fluffing your pathetic ego in same vain hope you can make out you know something of use. But the reality is, all you know is what you've been programmed with and that's a load bullshit. But if does prove, you and your ilk don't have the mental capacity to think for yourselves in any way.
