DAWN PATROL: CATHOLIC LEADERSHIP IN AMERICA RUSHES TO CLARIFY THE PONTIFF’S REMARKS ON HOMOSEXUALITY


As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan has made a statement this morning clarifying the statements made by Pope Francis I yesterday as the Pontiff returned to the Vatican from his visit to Brazil. The Pope said when asked about a “gay lobby” within the Vatican, “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge,” prompting Archbishop Dolan to clarify with, “We can’t judge people. we can judge actions; certain actions are immoral. In no way should this be interpreted as a change in church doctrine.”

Despite the clarification from Dolan the words of Francis I mark a significant shift in hos the Roman Catholic Church views homosexuals in the post Benedict XVI era. Benedict XVI one year prior to his visit to Brazil in 2006 wrote regarding homosexuality is, “a strong tendency ordered toward an intrinsic moral evil.” This statement and other paraphrases have been parroted by right wing Catholic bloggers on matters political time and time again.

  1. francis is an interesting pope is he not? (regardless of how one feels about the holy see).

    he washes the feet of prisoners & the homeless, eschews luxury veihcles, kept his modest apt from which he used to ride the bus, & now espouses progressive thought on women & gays.

    what next one wonders…liberation theology?
