"For this is a rebellious people, false sons, sons who refuse to listen To the instruction of the LORD; Who say to the seers, "You must not see visions"; And to the prophets, "You must not prophesy to us what is right, Speak to us pleasant words, Prophesy illusions." Isaiah 30:9,10

"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination" (Leviticus 18:22)

"Do not be deceived! Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit The Kingdom of GOD. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in The Name of the LORD Jesus and by the Spirit of our GOD" (1 Cor. 6:9-11).

The Pope is a False Prophet/Teacher attempting to put lipstick on what GOD clearly calls a pig/abomination. And this is no wonder, the papacy is also in on this:

I think you're wandering too far afield here, Patriot.

The Pope's statements were in line with:

Matthew 22:36-40

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied:“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it:‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Again -

"Do not be deceived! Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit The Kingdom of GOD. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in The Name of the LORD Jesus and by the Spirit of our GOD" (1 Cor. 6:9-11).

And -

"Follow GOD'S Example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to GOD."

"But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for GOD'S holy people. Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in The Kingdom of Christ and of GOD. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things GOD'S wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them."

"For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the LORD. Live as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the LORD. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the Light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a Light. This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,

rise from the dead,

and Christ will shine on you.”

"Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil."
Ephesians 5:1-15

And again in "The Revelation of Jesus Christ which GOD gave Him to show..." Ch. 21 vs 6-8

He said to me:“It is done. I Am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their GOD and they will be My children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Um, you're seemingly working very hard here to 'rebut' the words of Christ Himself.

He gave us the two commandments I cited. What of them?

The Two Commandments sum up the Ten and are The New Covenant. And it is you who is "working very hard here to 'rebut' the Words of Christ (GOD) Himself."

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the Truth and will turn aside to myths." 2 Timothy 4:3,4

"If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask GOD, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you..." James 1:5

"Then you will understand what it means to fear the LORD, and you will gain knowledge of GOD. For the LORD grants wisdom! From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest. He is a Shield to those who walk with integrity." Proverbs 2:5-7

What in the Bible supercedes Christ's two commands?

I don't think your pastes here nullify Christ's command to love Him and each other as ourselves.

Human sexual behavior has ignored the bounds of conduct set forth by man’s Creator. GOD said,‘Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion. Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I Am going to drive out before you became defiled. Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants; (Leviticus 18: 22-25). These verses indicate why GOD drove the heathen nations from the land that He had given Israel. Similarly, the rising tide of homosexual behavior in the U.S. indicates that our land has been defiled, and our nation (and all the other nations suffering from this defilement) will be punished for this sin.

I know my remarks will be considered offensive to homosexuals. I do not wish to offend one person. Yet, the Bible is clear and on this topic, GOD leaves no middle ground. The practice of homosexuality puts an impasse between people. On the one hand, homosexuals want acceptance and freedom to fulfill any sexual desire, but many heterosexuals want freedom from the immoral influence of homosexuality for themselves and their children. How can the needs of both be met while sharing the same land? Homosexuality is a deviation caused by the curse of sin. It is real, not imaginary. It is incredibly powerful. I have no doubts that for some, homosexual tendencies began early in life. Homosexuality affects people of every nation, race and religion and this sexual deviation is a behavioral sign of the end. Just as Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for defiant sexual immorality, the entire world will suffer the same fate.

Let me make this point clear. A person who is a homosexual is not unlike any other sinner. He/she has a soul to be saved and is due Christian kindness and charity. The need of a Savior is no less for the homosexual than any other sinner. However, salvation belongs to those who overcome sin through faith in Christ. The power unto salvation includes power over sin!(Romans 6:9-18, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11). The only cure for homosexuality is the same cure for every sinner, a miracle, the miracle of rebirth! Pray for those individuals who have adopted the homosexual lifestyle. Instead of judging the individual, pray for victory over a besetting sin. May GOD’S Holy Spirit speak to their hearts and help them grasp the divine condemnation that rests upon the sinful course of action.
