His “who am I to judge comment” was the end of his sentence. The pope was asked about what has been described as a “gay lobby” in the Vatican, allegedly a group of priests and bishops who work at the Vatican and protect each other. Pope Francis said it was important to “distinguish between a person who is gay and someone who makes a gay lobby.”
“A gay person who is seeking God, who is of good will — well, who am I to judge him?” the pope said. “The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this very well. It says one must not marginalize these persons, they must be integrated into society. The problem isn’t this (homosexual) orientation — we must be like brothers and sisters. The problem is something else, the problem is lobbying either for this orientation or a political lobby or a Masonic lobby.”
The church distinguishes between homosexual acts and homosexual tendencies or orientation, it said. The church, unlike much of the public, does not assume all those with a homosexual orientation are sexually active, just as it does not assume all heterosexuals are sexually active.

These nuns are Marxists who infiltrated the Church to tear it down from within. Same with the homosexuals. The Pope is correct. These women are stupid and indoctrinated into Marxist ideology and can not even understand simple Natural Laws. Any logical person, and theologian, knows that Marxist ideology-the elimination of the Natural Family and killing babies and stealing private property is against ALL moral codesnot just the Catholic Church. Charity cant be practiced by governments. They steal. Charity depends on freedom which only Capitalism and Free Markets and Virtuous people can create. History proves this. (Oh yes, these women are too stupid to observe history). The Pope needs to clean house.
