'Who am I to judge?' asks Pope; 'We've been asking that for years!' exclaim worldwide gays

by Jeremy Hooper

What about that Pope, huh?

“I have yet to find anyone who has a business card that says he is gay,” the pontiff said at a press conference in which he addressed the reports of a "gay lobby" within the Vatican.

“They say they exist. If someone is gay, who searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?” he added. "The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this very well. It says they should not be marginalized because of this (orientation) but that they must be integrated into society."

Of course the Catholic Church still considers our "acts" a "sin." But considering the constant, concerted, and truly aggressive way the church's leadership has been fighting our civil rights (now including opposition to even employment nondiscrimination, let me remind you), it's somewhat shocking to hear the big guy in charge making these points about judgment and marginalization.

Now to put them into practice.
