Pope Francis is not saying anything 'radical'

The left is going crazy over some of Pope Francis' remarks.    A week ago, the left thought that Pope Francis was another right winger clinging to his gun and Catholic Cathechism.  Today, they are ready to invite him to the next Planned Parenthood meeing.

For example, Frank Bruni wrote this

"IT'S about time. The leader of the Roman Catholic Church has surveyed the haughty scolds in its ranks, noted their fixation on matters of sexual morality above all others and said enough is enough. I'm not being cheeky with this one-word response. Hallelujah."

Sorry Frank but Pope Francis did not really say anything radical.  His message is one of love and consideration.

Don't expect Pope Francis to show up at a "pro Roe v Wade rally" in Washington DC or marching with Nancy Pelosi at "a gay pride parade" in San Francisco.  

This is some of what he said in the very long interview:

"......Francis does not come out in support of gay marriage, abortion rights or contraception, saying that church positions on those issues are "clear," but he added that the "the proclamation of the saving love of God comes before moral and religious imperatives."  

"A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if I approved of homosexuality," he said to Jesuit priest Fr. Antonio Spadaro, who conducted the interview for La Civilta Cattolica. "I replied with another question: 'Tell me: when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?'

We must always consider the person.""

Pope Francis is telling Catholics that we should not hate women who have abortions or those who engage in homosexuality.  He said that there is a place in our faith for them, too.

I heard a Pope telling us to understand rather than point fingers.  Or someone said, love the sinner and hate the sin.
