Pope Francis tells gay man: 'God made you like this and loves you like this'

A victim of clerical sex abuse has said Pope Francis told him God made him gay and his sexuality “does not matter”.

Juan Carlos Cruz spoke privately with the pontiff last week about the abuse he suffered at the hands of a prominent Chilean priest.

After his sexuality came up in conversation, Francis reportedly told him: “Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter. God made you like that and loves you like this and I don’t care. The Pope loves you like this. You have to be happy with who you are.” ...

So listen to this...I was just listening to a local talking head on newstalk radio. He brought this topic up, and said, "I'm a practicing Roman Catholic, and I gotta tell ya...what a relief". This guy went on to say that he has struggled with all of this, while asking himself, should gay Catholics be allowed in the church, and membership, is being gay wrong, is it right...I'm so relieved.
He went on to say more, but the kicker was, "What a relief"
So, this Pope just gave him his answer...inclusion and acceptance of the LGBTQ community...a green light here on Earth, and in Heaven.
Bible, schmible...Gods Word? Who cares, hey, we have a Pope...Christ on Earth, so why bother with what the Bible says when we have Christ's rep on hand to tell us what's up.

Francis is totally sick and psychotic and denies the Bible pertaining to homosexuality being an abomination and for denying that there is no scientific evidence that one is born homosexual.

...The Vatican is working through an extraordinary series of events related to child sex abuse. ...On Friday, following an emergency meeting in Rome with the pope, all 34 Chilean bishops offered their resignation over their handling of the allegations, an apparently unprecedented move....

...The quickly unfolding events suggest an aggressive redirection for Pope Francis, who elevated the Chilean scandal into a full-on crisis in January, when he vigorously defended Barros during a papal visit to Chile and Peru. As the Church continues to wrestle with the aftershocks caused by clergy sex abuse around the world, its efforts to make amends in Chile may be a sign of a new approach ahead—or the extreme difficulty of recovering from years of misconduct and mishandled allegations....

Hi Connor, I touched on this in my original comment yesterday, because it was one of my first thoughts after reading the story. I don't know if anything's changed since, but as soon as the story broke, the Vatican spokesperson was asked to validate the sodomites recollection of what the Pope specifically said, and he declined to comment. Didn't say he couldn't be reached for comment, but was reached, and declined to comment. I'd say that gives us the answer: true dat. I would think the spokesperson would want to put those flames out real quick, with a, "Say what?? No, no, no...the Pope said nothing of the sort!"

""A victim of clerical sex abuse has said Pope Francis told him God made him gay and his sexuality “does not matter”.""

If the Pope had been a REAL Christian he would have told this sodomite to REPENT and confess his sins to God in the name of Jesus.

Instead because the Pope is clearly NOT a Christian the satanic Pope has told him that it's ok to carry on sinning.

Proof (if it was needed) that the Pope and his organisation are evil, UNBiblical and faithless.

God says to the sodomites that they are an abomination and UNNatural.

Pope Francis has decided to disagree with God and disobey Him by making sin acceptable to sinners and repentance unnecessary to salvation.

May the Lord rebuke this demonic Pope and his idolatrous outfit of liars.

Jude:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh,...."

Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

Ok, so I was convicted to stop drinking as it was sin against God, my body and loved ones.
Has the homosexual lifestyle become a healthy alternative? No, 95% have a STD’s or hepatitis B or C, not to mention HIV. The homosexual lifestyle invaded society and gave millions HIV and many forms of cancer related to STD’s.
Sin, is Not what God intended for his creation. But , since the fall, we have fallen short of the glory of God. There are none righteous, no, not one.

Although I would not put it past him, I think that pope Leo the 10th would have had Francis put to death.

I feel very sad for this abused man. No God did not make him gay, though I am sure that the ambitious senior priest that abused him corrupted him, and twisted his whole conception of morality and life.

This poor man needs to repent, to get right with God, and turn away from this awful lifestyle, and also come to a right understanding of the Gospel of an All Holy God, who sent His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to die for our sins and to take the penalty due to us, so that we could be counted righteous before God, and be born again of His Holy Spirit.

As for that Pope Francis, sealing and confirming people in their sin, he was the one who made the Chilean situation worse, by making an infamous man, the protector of that corrupt priest, a bishop, and encouraging the cover up by making aspersions against the abuse victims.

He is an apostate man and a false prophet, and incidentally many Catholics are horrified by him. I pray that this will spur many of them to be born again and to leave that church, and be added to the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ, coming under the Word of God, and spreading the true Gospel of grace and salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Leviticus 18:22-28 KJV
[22] Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. [23] Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. [24] Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: [25] And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. [26] Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: [27] (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled [28] That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.

Guess Pope Francis forgot about the land spueing people out. God called it abomination to lie man with man or woman with woman. Why doesn’t Pope Francis get this? Because he’s an unbeliever and the head of the ancient Babylonian pagan mysteries otherwise kniwn as Roman Catholicism. One need only to look at the Egyptian obelisk in the center of the Vatican, the image of Jupiter

Not overly surprised surprised about the Pope's actions?The Romish loses too many priests if he came down hard on homosexuality❗ [URL=]]] (Catholic Priests: It's 'Empirical Fact' That Many Clergy Are Gay)[/URL]👎 Probably One reason the laity of the Romans church is more accepting of queer behavior than members of other churches are. It is surprising that's the pope did not fudge on the topic, though.

Well one thing the pope has right about is sanctimonious prayers.

AJ Willingham wrote:
Pope Francis has regularly called his followers to intertwine their prayer and works.
"Prayer that doesn't lead to concrete action toward our brothers is a fruitless and incomplete prayer," he said in 2013. "Prayer and action must always be profoundly united."
When even religious leaders appear to be questioning the real value of #ThoughtsAndPrayers, it can be hard to place your faith in it.
It begins to feel empty. It begins to feel reflexive, dismissive. And maybe even funny.
Just not in a ha-ha way.

I never heard a drunkard or a doper say, "God made me this way." Only sodomites and their supporters have the gall to utter such blasphemy.
