Of course one problem with the story is that the blessing never actually occurred. Typical crap media reporting.

Dear, did you even read your own links? The Zenit article said that Benny was having a bless the sinner not her sin when he blessed Kadaga (which is wonderfully pictured in the Patheos article by the way). The Patheos article is just plain outraged that he would do such a thing, which makes me wonder if you even bothered to read it.

The only crap reporting here has been your own sweetie, your own sources prove that you're wrong. Sorry.

I would go so far as to say that every person any Pope, Bishop or Priest has ever blessed has been a sinner. Many of them were criminals. He even extends blessings to those who vehemently oppose what the Church teaches (Fidel, the current POTUS).

A blessing does not confer agreement.

Could it have been a WWJD moment?

"Then it happened that as Jesus was reclining at the table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples,“Why is your Teacher eating with the tax collectors and sinners?” But when Jesus heard this, He said,“It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick.(Matthew 9:10)"

Actually it's much better if there are many reports made against the haters.

I usually quote them hoping others go back and report the abuse.

The Vatican party line is that Benny was blessing the sinner and not her sin, we hear that a lot. What they and yourself are failing to grasp, is that for those who are the victims of her sins, he is giving his tacit approval of them. He knew he was blessing one of the driving forces behind the hoped for legal genocide of Uganda's supposed "gay problem" and yet he did it anyways without one word of rebuke before or since. He should be deeply ashamed of himself.
