Sel,

You cannot draw this conclusion.

The Roman Catholic Church has immense internal problems that must be addressed. Let us hope that this man has the will to set his Church on a path that openly investigates and addresses the causes of these problems.

In the meantime, you and I have plenty of work to do toward bringing people into awareness of the right way to see each other, through the Teachings of Christ Jesus.

Most know it as GLBT, or Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender, but in contrast to Christ's advice NOT to take the best seats at a wedding, Sel always puts herself at the head of the table.

While I mm the co-founder of Oasis Jacksonville, The GLBT Center of Northeast Florida, the most often used term is LGBT. I didn't put anything in any order at all. LADIES FIRST....is the order most often used. Even when you try to defame me the egg is ALWAYS on your face Joe.

The National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA), a leading resource on journalistic style, chimes in on the LGBT vs. GLBT debate: "The NLGJA stylebook supplement does not give explicit guidance, but only lists 'LGBT' as an option, perhaps revealing a preference." A commenter chimes in: "Our college campus’ group ... technically referred to themselves as LGBTQQIA—the last part was queer (as in studies?), questioning, intersexed and (straight) allies. Most people were confused, even some gays. They ended up changing their name to 'prism.'"

She is right, Joe. In fact, the common reference IS LGBT. I prefer the more simple "Non-Hetero-" vs. "Hetero-." I don't like the stereotyping that the view from heterosexuality tries to make of pigeon-holed sexuality.

Though there are easily described general similarities, every individual is different with regard to their personal sexual interests, even among those who identify as heterosexual.

How so joline?

Since you pretend to be God and know all the thoughts and hearts of all, explain to us how you decide who is following Jesus.

Since you have the ability to read intentions, something that silly Jesus says only belongs to His Father, how were you chosen above Jesus?

LMAO at the hypocrite.....

Well, I thought some one pretending to be God might have a better explanation.

LOL!

Emotions rule your little bitter heart, just like a frantic old hysterical woman. Did you forget God gave us brains to over rule emotional knee jerk reactions?

What a hypocrite....

According to the Associated Press Stylebook, "the Bible of the newspaper industry," gay is "used to describe men AND women attracted to the same sex ..."

As for the "lesbian entry," it says to "See gay"!

GBLT, unless in order of self importance.

What supposed authority does the "AP Stylebook" have?

Certainly none on these threads.

I wonder if the choice of "Francis" indicates an ecological intent.

It has more than that of the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association, or any other self-serving gay group.

The AP has 242 bureaus worldwide and 3,500 employees.

The human population of the world is seven billion in 195 sovereign countries.

The number of cities of the world with population in excess of 150,000.... 2,851.

The number of people worldwide who are generally, statistically, considered to be "LGBT," whether openly or secretly, and for whatever reasons?

About 3-5%. At a minimum, 210,000,000.
