If any sinner is seeking forgiveness and redemption then it is not for us to judge them. That is biblical (Matt. 7:3 and other places)
The Pope did not address head-on the recalcitrant, self-righteous, in-your-face self-promoting gays we’ve been dealing with here.
does he have that policy for pedophiles too?
Sometimes I think it is not worth the trouble to save those lost souls.
But I guess the Pope feels duty bound to try.
