“Who am I to judge them if they’re seeking the Lord in good faith?” he said.

It's sad to see evidence that the Pope is seemingly "unaware" of passages in the Holy Bible concerning judging others, particularly where biblically condemned same-sex sexual relationships are concerned. More spefically, reflecting on Jesus' words concerning unrepentant sinners in Matthew 18:15-17, Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 that church members are expected judge other church members.

I think it is truly fascinating, almost spiritual, to see so many folks hear different things in what the Pope said. The same words are taken individually to mean specific things.

I think Jesus would say, the words are heard as a reflection of the individual who hears them.

The same would be true of someone cheating on their spouse, or living with someone without the benefit of marriage.

So far as I can tell, all of these are sins for which one can be saved through repentance.
