Is the Catholic Church Becoming More Gay Tolerant Under Pope Francis?

Is the Catholic Church Becoming More Gay Tolerant Under Pope Francis?
Posted on July 29, 2013 by V2A —

Pope Francis has challenged his doctrinaire predecessor’s opinions on gay priests while upholding Church dogma that bans the ordination of women.

Flying back to Rome from his week-long visit to Brazil, the pontiff took reporters’ questions for 80 minutes in his first press conference since he was elected by cardinals to replace Pope Benedict XVI in March.

Unlike his predecessor who would only answer a few pre-scripted questions,
the 76-year-old Argentine Jesuit

fielded all issues unprompted, ranging from the so-called “gay lobby” in the Vatican to accusations of corruption involving its bank.

“If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?’’ the pontiff said in remarks that Vatican reporters saw as the most conciliatory on the issue of gay priests expressed by any pope. In line with Church teaching, Francis said gays should not be judged or marginalised but integrated into society, while maintaining that homosexual acts are a sin.

I did, by reading the article.

Last line is especially instructive.

I didn't know the answer to this question, so I quick went on line to one of those ancients gods,'cause I figured they would be closer to the source of real truth.

They must have been busy because it took hours for me to get any response whatsoever ... and then I was informed that it was a goddess from whom I was receiving the information.

Before I go any further with the response she gave me ... being that she is female ... will you trust that she tells the truth???

Pope Benedict: In 1981, he settled in Rome when he became Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, one of the most important dicasteries of the Roman Curia.
During that time he helped shape the new view of gays and lesbians by the Catholic Faith. Under John Paul II he helped change the idea of homosexuality from an inherent sin to the ACT being sinful not the person or their state of being.
My partner was catholic and when he died he wanted to be cremated. His family were fairly traditional and some worried that destroying his body by fire would deny him resurrection in the Rapture. They were afraid the church would not allow him to be interred in holy ground. They were not aware that the Church had changed it's stance on cremation. It's amazing to me that it was his desire to be cremated that they feared the church would object to and not the fact that he was gay and my husband (we never married in any open ceremony. We exchanged vows on evening before God).
I am also allowed to be interred next to him even though I am not Catholic.(One of my sisters had converted so that was my way in).
Just wanted to share part of my experience with the RCC and their rules.
Why people even desire to belong to religious groups that teach such horrible dogmas is beyond me.

I was under the spell of religion for most of my life, but I created a belief of my own that the one god loved everybody without conditions put upon the love.

At least I wasn't trying to grab all the supposed love for my self while claiming that others deserved to spend eternity in hell.

Religion is BUNK!

Your mom might have thought she was teaching you something of value, but I believe that that teaching could make you believe that you have a straight line to truth, which is exactly what most all people believe that are in any man-created institution of worship.

To believe one knows truth of a god or gods, is to simply worship the self's intellectual ability to go above self.

I believe that the Catholics were the first ones to use the word Christian. Ignatius was Catholic.

An important milestone into development of Christian self-consciousness or Christian self-identity will be the emergence of the word "Christianity." This word appears for the first time in the writings of a church thinker of the early 2nd century of our era named Ignatius, who lived in Western Asia Minor, modern day Western Turkey

Why are Buddhists and Hindus killing each other in Sri Lanka which is known as the home of the suicide bomber?

Best answer

My one word answer: Religion. The struggle is political on the surface, but the division underneath all that is religious.

My guess is that at least some Catholics were not molested but took advantage of the situation to reap payouts from the church.

One lawyer was even disbarred for being caught in such a deception.

People can see that a god was never guiding the words of anybody in religion ... yet they continue to play the games.

None of that is doctrine. Doctrine cannot be changed.

You're not the only one to make that mistake. Every non-Catholic on this forum has done the same and even after they're corrected they come back a few days later and do it all over again. Unfortunately, a lot of Catholics don't know their faith either and are responsible for spreading misinformation, not to mention causing themselves and their families unnecessary angst.
