But large media outlets, such as the BBC, often accused of promoting same-sex rights, were quick to report the story in accordance with their own biases. The BBC splashed this headline across its news site: “Pope Francis: Who am I to judge gay people?” Others followed suit, misleadingly implying that the Holy Father “doesn’t judge gay people.”

“The problem is the headlines,” he added, “and confusion over the meaning of the word 'gay.'”

Yesterday, FR ran the mainstream media reporting as their #1 Breaking News story for the entire day. Here is an opportunity for FR to re-educate their members on the truth of Catholic teaching.

It signaled a change of tone, and what seems to be the first use of the word “gay” by a Pope.

It is misleading to pretend that nothing was done and all this was made up.

The Catechism teaches that homosexual persons “are called to chastity” and that “by the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection” (2359).

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. Any sacrifice ANY of us make for the good of the world’s people is a blessing on mankind. A predisposition to gossip? Say a short prayer instead. Light fingerness? 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.
