Uh, hate to ask, but what does the action of
another individual have to do with the Pope
that would warrant excommunication?

"Bill R" wanted to know, "Uh, hate to ask, but what does the action of another individual have to do with the Pope that would warrant excommunication?"

It has to do with the papacy having been subject to a de facto "King Of The Church" mentality for maybe too long. This way of thinking on the part of the Pope, if it still has any impact, could conceivably lead to abuse of powers, among them the making of a number of decidedly un-Christian decisions, and in a negatively authoritarian manner, that may end up costing the Church numerous adherents.

And that has exactly what to do with the topic?

It goes to the issues of intolerance and bigotry. How often have you read those bumper stickers or those picket signs that say, "Hate is not a family value"?

What is involved here is not that different from what you found in fascist and communist countries. If you want to be technical about it, it involves having the "strange god" of narrowness of mind before the Lord Of Hosts, in violation of the First Commandment.

God Damned hypocrites! The catholics refuse to allow gays to marry or bless gay relationships but condone hidden sexual trysts with male prostitutes, who are also serving the vatican. He was married! His marriage should be annulled. How can any true believer follow this type of leadership. Ordained by God, my ASS!

The entire bunch of hypocrites & perverts in the Vatican are protected by other perverts in the Catholic church. The Catholic church is nothing, and has never been anything but a cover for perversion.

all sorts of criminal activity.

Homosexuality is one of the most disgusting sins and greatest crimes.... It is a vile perversion that goes against sound nature, and is one of the most corrupting and hideous sins.... The punishment for homosexuality is death. Both the active and passive participants are to be killed whether or not they have previously had sexual intercourse in the context of a legal marriage.... Some of the companions of the Prophets stated that [the perpetrator] is to be burned with fire. It has also been said that he should be stoned, or thrown from a high place.

Gays can and do commit other crimes. John Wayne Gacy was gay and was a mass murderer. Jeffrey Dahmer was also gay and a mass murderer who even ate his victims. There are many more gay serial killers but I do not have time to write them all. There are gay robbers, too. But I think God decides who He makes gay.

yes, gays are everywhere. there are even gays in the police, military, wrestling, etc.

my point is, being gay is not a crime. in fact, gays are created by God for a purpose.
