I don’t understand Pope Francis ‘judging the gays’

In a press conference he reportedly gave, and Reuters reported accurately translated, he says:

“They say they exist. If someone is gay, who searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?” he added. “The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this very well. It says they should not be marginalized because of this (orientation) but that they must be integrated into society.”

via Pope: ‘Who am I to judge’ gay people? – World News.

He goes on to say that Mary is above the Apostles and that the Roman church has not done enough to develop the theology of women.

Also, he doesn’t like Masonic lobbies and other lobbies.

I don’t like lobbies either and most likely, for the same reasons the Pope has. Anyway, let’s sit dumbfounded and continue to follow this Pope.

note the title is supposed to be a bit odd, ironic, humorous, catching…

  1. With respect to sexual orientation, this is only a return to the position before Benedict XVI. Why is this considered so earth-shaking. Next Francis will declare that Jesus is present in the Eucharist.

    The statement about women has more potential to be newsworthy, even though others (not necessarily popes) have said the same thing inside the Roman Carnival.
