Watch Cardinal Dolan’s explanation here:

Media Criticized for Misrepresenting What Pope Francis Said About Gays
Another tortured explanation of what the pope really meant. Perhaps he should refrain from having a presser every day.
So the Pope said nothing of interest.
This new pope might need to be a little more clear. This type thig has happened a few times with him.
I am not Catholic but I don’t believe this man is helping the cause with his confusing statements. The popes might change but the Bible doesn’t.
Not good? Neither is a gay priest who is in position of leadership and authority.
Some have/are reading more into what the Pope said, than he actually said. Every homosexual is welcome in the church as long as he does not act on his homosexual nature. You can be one but don’t do it, is what that means. Priests who are straight are welcome as long as they don’t act on their straight nature. Be straight but don’t do it. It is the “doing” that is the sin, not being homosexual or straight. Don’t commit that sin and you are welcome.
The way I see homosexuality:
Suppose a boy receives a box from his mother and father on his 16th birthday. With is is a card that reads:
This present is given to you as our parents have, through the generations, passed it to us. We hand it down to you with all our love. Take good care of it and pass it to you first born child. All our love,
Mom and Dad
The boy opens it and it is the most exquisitely crafted ring, done generations ago by the most gifted craftsman. Mounted on top is a radiant cut 3 carat diamond.
The boy tells himself, he isn’t into rings. They are too materialistic. He gives his parents a perfunctory thank you and without their knowledge, tosses the ring into the ocean.
The ring represents the gift of life.
