"Who am I to judge a gay person of goodwill who seeks the Lord? You can't marginalize these people."
Now, this is not the same as "the Pope doesn't judge gays." But it's eons ahead of everything else the Catholic Church has said about gays up until now. I'm curious to see if there will be any shockwaves or if he will issue a "clarification."
Cardinal Sean Brady, the leader of the Catholic Church in Ireland, has admitted he was part of a closed tribunal in 1975 that ordered two children who'd been molested by a priest to sign an oath of silence. Despite this, he has no intention of resigning.
The Pope is a Nazi—this much we know. But he tries to pretend not to be. Un-excommunicating (or maybe just communicating?) a bishop who doesn't believe millions were exterminated by the Nazis? Not real discreet. Now the scumbag priest says he has to do research and see new evidence before he decides if, you know, the Holocaust happened. (He can't simply have faith that it did.)
If the Pope doesn't get rid of this guy, any Catholic should be ashamed to allow the guy to continue being God's emissary on earth.
