Look, it’s no secret I am not now, nor have I ever been, a fan of pope Frankie. Even before he became The Anointed One, I remember hearing all the things he said about The Gays and same-sex marriage.
Then he slipped into the Pope’s Red Prada’s and donned that fabulous hat and said, of The Gays, “Who am I to judge?” And the LGBT community — or at least some, perhaps many, in the community — praised him as the Gay Friendly Pope. But then he kept saying things against us … like now.
At the beginning of the year,
It was an oh-so-subtle attack on marriage equality.
life of the Church is enriched through every marriage which shows forth this beauty, and is impoverished when marriage is disfigured in any way."
He cannot bring forth one couple, any opposite-sex couple, who was married, and had their marriage harmed, or ‘disfigured’ because a couple of ‘mos tied the knot.
What he is doing, and let’s be queer, no matter how many times he mutters that isn’t judging anyone, that Pope Frankie is attacking all those same-sex couples who have either married or wish to marry.
He can smile that sweet little smile, and say that the Church should be more welcoming and less judgmental, and then he lobs another bomb on same-sex marriage. He is not The Gay Friendly Pope. He is just another in a long line of political leaders of the Catholic Church trying to placate The Gays while waging war against us.
And don’t forget that the next time he says something nice about us, because that’s part of his plan.
