This is why I like Pope Francis. I don't have to agree with all of his theology to appreciate his attitude in some key areas:
Pope to LGBT Catholics: 'God is Father who does not disown any of his children' - Vatican News
Outreach: What would you say is the most important thing for LGBT people to know about God?
Pope Francis: God is Father and he does not disown any of his children. And “the style” of God is “closeness, mercy and tenderness.” Along this path you will find God.
Outreach: What do you say to an LGBT Catholic who has experienced rejection from the Church?
Pope Francis: I would have them recognize it not as “the rejection of the church,” but instead of “people in the church.” The church is a mother and calls together all her children. Take for example the parable of those invited to the feast: “the just, the sinners, the rich and the poor, etc.” [Matthew 22:1-15; Luke 14:15-24]. A “selective” church, one of “pure blood,” is not Holy Mother Church, but rather a sect.
Good evening Sun rise. The Roman Catholic Church has been guilty of atrocities, persecution of righteous people, martyring and torture. How anyone can be a Roman Catholic I do not know. If we don't use the Law of Yahweh we will become weak spiritually. According to the Bible, homosexuality is an abomination. But instead of saying this, he wants to pander to the mainstream. It is a shame.
