According to the Associated Press, below is what Pope Francis said when quizzed about gay priests during his transatlantic flight home following a week-long trip to Brazil...

    "Pope Francis reached out to gays on Monday, saying he wouldn’t judge priests for their sexual orientation.... "If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?" Francis asked.

Below is a longer version (and slightly different translation) of the Pope's quote via NCR:

    "When I meet a gay person, I have to distinguish between their being gay and being part of a lobby. If they accept the Lord and have good will, who am I to judge them? They shouldn’t be marginalized. The tendency [to homosexuality] is not the problem...they’re our brothers.”

Who are you to judge?


As if its not written in the bible or the destruction of sodom and gomorrah did not happen...

What is bad is bad. There's no need talking from both sides of your mouth

As a pope u ar not to judge but to condemn the despicable act.As human we should not hate people bot hate their character and actions.Being a gay is bad n should be condemn outrightly.

JESUS-CHRIST SAID I WILL REMEMBER U BECAUSE U GAVE ME WATER, FOOD, SHELTER AND CLOTHES WHEN I WAS COLD).....

The question is 'is God homophobic?'

Personally I don't think so.

Would  God endorse us killing people
because of their sexuality - I doubt it!

God would condemn the act - like he did with the woman caught in the act of adultery. Unlike the the story of some months back where a man and woman were caught trying to commit adultery and the village people in all their 'righteousness' force them to commit the act! Who do we think is more likely to  be condemned? Should we not turn people away from sin?

I do not support homosexualism (let's drop the painted word 'gay') but I will not have people beaten up or killed because of their sexuality.

Like the God I worship I am not homophobic! I love all people even those who hate me because I am black!

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT GOD IS OR IS NOT,,,,IF U DO NOT WANT TO WORSHIP HIM SUIT YOURSELF,,,,WHETHER HOMOPHOBIC OR BARBARIC,,,,GO TEACH GOD RIGHTEOUSNESS NOW AS U THINK U R MORE HUMAN THAN GOD & U HAVE A GOOD HEART...WHAT THE PEOPLE DID TO THOSE ADULTERERS WAS NOT ENOUGH, GOD PRESCRIBED STONING IF FOUND WITH SOMEONE WIFE OR HUSBAND.....GO READ UR BIBLE FINISH BEFORE U COME LECTURE PEOPLE FOR NAIJAPAL AS IF U KNOW BETTER....
