Wow, I seriously can’t believe that all of the people commenting on this status are so damn blind to what is even going on.
The pope excommunicated a clergyman. By their laws, a MAN OF GOD CANNOT BE HOMOSEXUAL. As far as the most radical belief of Orthodox Catholicism, sure, homosexuality is wrong, but that doesn’t mean their leader should lead a crusade against them, AND HE’S NOT. All Pope Francis did was follow the teachings that a member of the clergy, a holy man, cannot be homosexual, and he rightfully held that vow.
He’s not condemning everyone because gays exist—he’s punishing a moderately high-ranking member of god’s preachers for disobeying their sacred teachings, something that makes perfect sense.
It just pisses me off that people like this (the Facebook posters) actually exist.
