    Heaven forbid the Catholic Church should progress past the 14th Century…

    they’ve survived for almost 2000 years, must have had a good message in there somewhere.

    Yeah, and now we’re finally getting to see it free of bigotry.

    If people would actually find more time to read and ponder the actual words of Jesus Christ in the Bible itself, they would find out that what Pope Francis himself is trying to do is to get closer to the words and actions of Christ. Personally, I find that all to the good, of not only the Catholic Church itself, but of all Christianity, and eventually all mankind as well. I LOVE this particular pope, just as I LOVE My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!

    Ghandi is credited with saying “Love the sinner, hate the sin”.

    I am not an avid reader of the Bible, but I still recall many portions of it from my Parochial school days. Somewhere in the Old Testament, the Pharisees criticized Christ as a fraud, because he spent so much time with known sinners. But, as Robt Landers points out, Christ was about love, and forgiveness; something the high Jewish scholars did not understand. Pope Francis is following Christ’s lead, and he will have to overcome the deeply-ingrained old-world prejudices of his bishops.
    .
    Before I get pilloried, I am NOT, NOT, NOT comparing the gay community with sinners! Repeat, NOT. I cautiously used this story because, first, I remembered it (a miracle in itself!), but to spotlight the bishops biases against their own #1 bishop, who is trying to lead the Church further away from the Dark Ages.

    “they’ve survived for almost 2000 years, must have had a good message in there somewhere.”

    Yes, there is a good message in there “somewhere.” I may be an atheist, but I do agree with that statement. Christ’s message of treating your fellow man with dignity, respect, and compassion is a damn good message. Too bad it’s overshadowed by the crap people use to justify their hate.

    Please don’t try to use the Bible as a history book; Biblical scholars will tell you not to.
    I’m not sure the Church itself understood that message, looking back on how “heretics” were treated, the Crusades, the Inquisition, etc…
