The article says so clearly The official position of the Catholic Church on the issue is that while homosexual desires or attractions are not in themselves sinful, the physical acts are -- so hate the sin but not the sinner.
We hate homosexuality and the gay mafia but sympathize with those sinners.
What's wrong with what the Pope said in this context ". If someone is gay, who searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?" - nothing?
Don't stick to just the headline... the MSM blurbs are nonsensical
Why doesn’t he just shut up about it? He is catering as much as the phony in the White Hut.
What is wrong with the Pope quoting these?
Leviticus 18:22 - Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, (Read More...)
Romans 1:26-28 - For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (Read More...)
Exodus 22:19 - Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.
Leviticus 20:13 - If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.
Leviticus 18:1-30 - And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, (Read More...)
Leviticus 18:15-24 - Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law: she [is] thy son’s wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
The full quote is even more disturbing because the Pope knows that is not the issue. All Christians should agree with that statement. The Culture is being wagged by a tiny group of homosexual radicals who want their lifestyle approved & exulted. They have infiltrated all the major institutions of Govt., Education, Entertainment, and the Church. To disagree is to HATE - that is intolerable to me, and I want our leaders to speak out against that. If the Pope can’t see that or won’t see that, well...who is he really representing?
According to Jesus Christ, "LUST" is "sinful." (Matthew 5:27-30). Enough of this propagandist church which not only refuses to chastise homosexuality according to scripture, but the infestation within its ranks. This Pope doesn't demonstrate "Christian leadership", but rather appeasement of sin.
More food for thought:
Revelation 22:14 ~ Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
Revelation 22:15 ~ For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie.
