Vatican Rocked by Gay Sex Scandals

When asked by the media about homosexuality Pope Francis responded, “If a person is gay — who am I to  judge?” Here is the video of his comment:

Well it appears now that Pope Francis has a problem and perhaps his comment has contributed to it? Perhaps Pope Francis should reconsider his position and begin judging behaviors that are inconsistent with social and biblical norms?

Philip Pullella from Reuters reports:

Pope Francis asked for forgiveness on Wednesday for scandals at the Vatican and in Rome, an apparent reference to two cases of priests and gay sex revealed this month during a major meeting of bishops.

“Today … in the name of the Church, I ask you for forgiveness for the scandals that have occurred recently either in Rome or in the Vatican,” Francis said in unprepared remarks during his weekly general audience in St. Peter’s Square.

“I ask you for forgiveness,” he said before tens of thousands of people, who broke into applause. The pope then read his prepared address and did not elaborate.

    This Pope is a dangerous person. There are Christians and non muslims in the Middle East who are having their heads chopped off, being burned alive, crucified, turned into sex slaves, you name it, and he would rather talk about the dangers of global warming.

    Meanwhile, him and his Catholic Church raked in almost $80 million last year for resettling Islamic refugees and they are urging parishioners to pressure the President to take in 100,000 from Syria by the end of this year: But these are not the persecuted refugees who can’t afford to come and who are stuck in camps. http://www.usccb.org/about/migration-and-refugee-services/upload/2014-MRS-Annual-Report.pdf (scroll to last page).
