“Pope Says Catholic Church Should not Dismiss Gay Marriage”

Pope Francis says the issue of gay marriage should be studied and not dismissed out-of-hand, a senior Roman Catholic cardinal has revealed.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the outspoken archbishop of New York, said Pope Francis had told him: “Rather than quickly condemn them, let’s just ask the questions as to why that has appealed to certain people.”

Archbishop Dolan stressed that the Pope had not shifted the Catholic Church’s position on same-sex unions.

“It wasn’t as if he came out and approved them,” he told the NBC television network in the US.

But the Pope wanted senior Church leaders to “look into” the issue and to scrutinise the reasons why many countries have legalised same-sex marriages.

In an interview last week with Corriere della Sera, a leading Italian daily, the Pope stressed that the Church continued to regard marriage as being a union between a man and a woman.

But he did say that countries around the world were “normalising different arrangements of cohabitation” and that “we must consider different cases and evaluate each particular case.”

Editors note.....The day is drawing closer when the Catholic Church (harlot) will open its doors to the whole world.
