Pope Francis needs to make a comment about cardinals afflicted with homophobic diahorrea of the mouth

Homophobia is a crippling disability that prevents him from doing his job

I think these pronouncements by the pope, and other Catholic clerics are meaningless. ANY gay person who is a Catholic or who associates themselves with the RCC is CRAZY.

Once again, too many times... the by-line is there to get our attention and then in the story (?) body there are words repeating the headline but nothing there on the article!
Give us the story: what did Dolan say? What damage control did he make?

Isn't it refreshing to hear a pope shoot from the hip instead of the towing the old line of church doctrine. He says what he thinks regardless of whether it is consistent with the Church's positions.

He also said the door to female priests is closed. So that puts him squarely in the circle of the "good old boys".

Do civil unions really do what the anti gays said they would do?

Well well well. Looks like the claims by the bigots that civil unions will do the same thing as marriage is unraveling in KY.

Exclusive: Will a lesbian couple be forced to testify against each other?

I hope we get this to be a big buzz on the internet. It will be interesting to hear the usual suspects respond,(Hannity, Limbaugh, Nom, AFA, Robertson, O'Reilly, etc.).

I Love it! PLEASE promote this story everywhere: Facebook; Twitter; etc.

I tell people I am a gay Christian. I also don't like to lie. I made a mistake about information in the KY lesbian story. I posted that error on many threads. KY does NOT have a civil unions law.

I am embarrassed that I failed to do the research I so often criticizes others for not doing.

I sinned and now repent that sin.

The Pope reiterated the Church's position.

It's all good.
