Thank you!

Spot on. I remember reading the book on Vince Lombardi, When Pride Still Mattered, by David Maraniss a few years back. In it Maraniss talked about how Lombardi broke away from his Catholic faith by showing compassion towards those who were homosexual.

My jaw hit the floor. It's this insipid misconception that just because the Catholic Church opposes gay marriage that it doesn't show compassion or mercy. If anything Lombardi's actions reaffirm his faith and teachings of the Catholic Church.

This interview with Pope Francis just confirms this philosophy.
