I hope this is erroneous reporting of a blabbermouth Pope who needs to watch his diarrhea of the mouth
I think in a sense these comments speak to his naiveté regarding public discourse in our current cultural decline. Perhaps he as led a cloistered existence and doesn’t fully grasp the rabid nature with which the immoral will twist and turn the words of truth for their own purposes.
In some ways his naiveté is more dangerous than his would be acceptance of homosexual priests.
The catholic church has knowingly allowed gays into the seminaries because they fear a decline of priests to lead the flocks, instead they have let in the wolves.
Pray for priests and the pope, they are under constant attack because they strive for the salvation of souls. Follow Christ and love your neighbor. Easier said than done.
