OK, the world’s got a new Pope but it doesn’t sound like much will change when it comes to the Church’s stance on us. Not that I thought anything really would – like one theologian stressed, the responsibilities of the pope come with a pretty conservative job description. However, it would have been nice if we had a new guy that at least, if not endorsing our lifestyle, stressed Jesus’ first commandment, “Love One Another.” But Francis I already has a track record from his days as Cardinal for vehemently opposing gay marriage which he describes as “the devil’s work” (pretty extreme, huh? – what about all those str8 divorces?) and gay adoption “which he feels is “discrimination against children.” (How about those kids gays adopt that str8 society is about ready to throw on the garbage heap?)
But at least one good thing: he’s Italian (I’m partial to Italian men) and he’s from Argentina which I visited ages ago and which, with its Italian-Spanish ancestry, has some of the hottest guys – and gals – I ever laid eyes on.
