The Pope was right, but of course the liberal press jumped to change his meaning. Think of the graces earned by those who are born with a predisposition to their own sex.

Put your hands in your pocket and keep them there. The sacrifice of those born with a predisposition to their own sex floods God’s graces on the world. The Pope was right.
