Pope Pontificates

Pope Francis

In the biggest U-turn since the letter U was invented, Pope Francis decides that it is not his place to judge gay people who want to turn to God.

In a generous departure from years of the Catholic Church judging and persecuting gay people, Pope Francis has postulated that perhaps it is not his place to judge 'people like this'. 

Although, he hasn't fallen back on the age old addendum 'I have a gay friend...' because he's been checking everyone's identity cards in the Vatican and - surprise, surprise - nobody has elected to put that on their ID.

You can listen to his speech online: Pope Francis: Who am I to judge gay people?

  1. Don't be fooled. People need to read a bit further than his words. He makes it absolutely clear that gay sex is a sin - ergo, healthy gay people who wish to have a relationship and get married are sinners. He's only saying those that find god and denounce all acts of the flesh *might* be acceptable. It's the same old tired BS the church spout every day. This is an institution that has been persecuting gay people for generations and will continue to do so; last year it gave Rebecca Kadaga its blessing. He just can't stand the fact Desmond Tutu has been getting all the international attention.
