Ex-Priest in the Pope’s Homeland Leaves the Church Over Nasty Gay Union Statements
The other day I posted about the Pope commenting on gay “unions.” He thinks it’s wrong. But there have been more than a few reactions. And frankly, I don’t think the Pope is drawing that many people into the church with nasty comments like these. Especially not this man. He’s leaving for good.
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — A former priest and LGBTQ activist who has blessed same-sex unions in Pope Francis’ home country, Argentina, is leaving the Roman Catholic Church after the Vatican issued a pronouncement this week that priests may not perform such blessings.
Here’s more. I know a lot of LGBTQ Catholics were shocked by the most recent statement from the Vatican, and others were highly disappointed. Frankly, I have a strong feeling the Pope might be gay…closeted gay. I’d bet money on this one. He just can’t come to terms with himself. It wouldn’t be the first time we discovered a gay priest.
