Gay Magazine Names Pope ‘Person Of The Year’

From Breitbart:

Gay Rights Mag Names Pope Francis ‘Person of the Year’ Despite Same-Sex Marriage Stance

By Dr. Susan Berry | December 16, 2013

A leading lifestyle magazine [sic] that promotes gay rights and same-sex marriage has named Pope Francis its “Person of the Year.”

The December issue of The Advocate features Pope Francis with a “NO H8” message photoshopped on his right cheek. Next to his photo is a quote from the pope’s interview with reporters in July…

“If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?” the pontiff told reporters.

We’re confused. Wasn’t there a recent scandal in the Roman Catholic Church? Was it about about the lack of homosexual priests?

Pope Francis, who opposes same-sex marriage and vehemently fought its passage while he was archbishop of Buenos Aires, was chosen as The Advocate’s “Person of the Year” …

Yeah, what that was then and this is now.

Regarding its choice of Pope Francis, The Advocate states:

Pope Francis is leader of 1.2 billion Roman Catholics all over the world. There are three times as many Catholics in the world than there are citizens in the United States. Like it or not, what he says makes a difference. Sure, we all know Catholics who fudge on the religion’s rules about morality. There’s a lot of disagreement, about the role of women, about contraception, and more. But none of that should lead us to underestimate any pope’s capacity for persuading hearts and minds in opening to LGBT people, and not only in the U.S. but globally…"

Meaning, that they are hoping to use the Pope to push their agenda. Which is always job one.

Ironically, however, the magazine refers to Pope Francis’ words as a “stark change in rhetoric,” though the future pope wrote in 2010 when the debate about same-sex marriage was at its peak in Argentina, “Let’s not be naïve: This is not a simple political struggle, but an attempt to destroy God’s plan. It is not just a bill but a move of the Father of Lies, who seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.” …

Yes, but hopefully the Pope has evolved since way back in 2010.

The Advocate, nevertheless, in honoring Pope Francis, states… "LGBT Catholics who remain in the church now have more reason to hope that change is coming.”

They just can’t stand any kind of diversity, can they?

    Ever had one of those yagoff friends that says “Hey guys, Joe said the party’s at his place, Friday!” until the next thing you know at least a dozen of your friends are sure you promised them a party and it’s pretty freakin’ difficult to let them down?

    It’s a children’s thing, but liberals ~are~ children. I doubt it’s going to work on the Pope.
