Pope wants church to drop obsession with abortion, homosexuality

Remarkable but consistent with his actions and words to date. His humanity and humbleness are moving to all, including atheists like me. Discussing some of the changes with our more religious friends, they feel the same breath of fresh air with his emphasis on our common humanity and inclusion. A remarkable man, confident in his doubts and self-reflection, and likely to be one of those rare transformative figures.

    I love this pope. OK I am a faithful daughter of the Church and so I would have been fine with whoever got tapped. But with Pope Francis I truly think that the cardinals were divinely inspired in his election.

    Should be said (and I will say it because I am a pretty traditional conservative Catholic) that none of this changes the Church’s position on these topics.

    But rather than spending out time telling the world what we are against, we might try telling people what we are for (just for a change of pace) 🙂
