A reporter asked Pope Francis about a Vatican monsignor named Battista Ricca who allegedly engaged in homosexual relationships years ago while living in Latin America. Francis answered simply, “If a person is gay and accepts the Lord, and has good will, who am I to judge them?” While the words of the pope are accurately reported, the implications made by gay-friendly media are false. In his Washington Post column, Paul Rondeau goes on to show how the media has made the Pope’s comments mean unconditional acceptance of practicing gays into the community of believers. He also corrects this gay enhancing bias by explaining what “accepts the Lord and has good will” means. To find out, read Rondeau’s article at http://www.communities.washingtonpost.com.
