Pope Francis: Not a fan of the gays

This shouldn’t be too surprising.  Openly anti-gay Bishop Charles Scicluna says he met with Pope Francis and the pope was very much against gay couples adopting.  Pope Francis has been in the news a lot this year labeled as a “more liberal” pope.  Let’s be clear here. If you are not supporting equality you are against it.  There is no reward for being less of a bigot than others.

2013 was not a very gay friendly year for the Catholic Church.   There have been MANY anti-gay statements made by Bishops all over the world this year.  The highlight for me was when Bishop Thomas John Paprocki performed an EXORCISM on gay marriage in Illinois! The runner up for me this year was when Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan said Catholic Church was being “caricatured as being anti-gay”.  He wasn’t kidding.  That is the scary thing!

One more thing for us to all be clear on. The Pope runs the show at the Catholic Church.  He would silence his Bishops if he wanted to.  Pope Francis is 100% against equality.  Granted, he may be less public with his bigotry.

Hopefully the Catholic Church (and all other organized religions) will focus on more important and relevant things in 2014.  Things like preaching love, teaching people to be kind, preaching tolerance and most importantly, modernizing dated views on gender roles and the LGBT community.
