Church is a mother, not a bachelor, pope says at morning Mass

  • Pope Francis

He said that his sexuality came up because some of the Latin American country's bishops were trying to portray him as a pervert and claimed he was lying about the abuse.

Cruz said that the pope told him: "You know Juan Carlos, that does not matter". God made you like this and he loves you, ' " Cruz told The Associated Press. The Pope basically saying that Carlos Cruz was "born that way" isn't what we usually hear out of Catholic doctrine. "You have to be happy with who you are".

The Los Angeles Times reported that the Vatican did not confirm the pope's comments given that it was a private conversation. But some Catholics found the report encouraging.

As it turns out, Williams loves Glover's take on Lando as much as the rest of the world does. "He's eclectic. I feel like with the Skywalkers, it's hard, because it's nearly like the Bible.

These "Pope Francis gay comments" are a significant departure from the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

And despite Catholic teaching maintaining that homosexuality is a sin, Francis has previously made controversial comments on the issue.

Addendum: This story is actually much less significant than what else went on in regard to Cruz' audience with Francis. However, religion can often be the area of life that people find the most hard to reconcile with their identity. The remarks show, though, that the Pope doesn't believe that people choose to be gay. Some people will say that LGBT people can't exist in faith communities; that faith communities don't accept same-sex relationships or those whose gender doesn't match the one that they were assigned at birth.

Yanny or Laurel? Our team is split

WASHINGTON (CNS) - The Catholic Church doesn't often add new celebrations to its pretty full liturgical calendar, but this year's new feast day, Mary, Mother of the Church on May 21, has Catholics marking the day or at least thinking a little more about Mary.

Be clear, the Catholic Church has done absolutely no favors around homosexuality and the scandal of priests molesting young boys feeds directly into those archaic views. That reticence--to confidently proclaim rightful role of the Church under the rule of Christ the King--has emasculated efforts to evangelize, to teach with moral authority, to draw all men to the sacraments, to protect life, and even to shield and maintain the immutable definitions of man, woman, child, marriage and family. The Pope has actually appointed Errázuriz to a council of senior advisors to the Pope, to which Cruz only had these words to say: "It's unbelievable that [Cardinal Errázuriz] is actually close to you when he has a whole history of covering up and being a bad person".
