On Sunday, the kosher Pope Francis apologized to gay community which had been condemned by the Catholic Church, Protestant Church and other Christian denominations for centuries.
“I think that the Church not only should apologize to a gay person whom it offended but it also apologize to the poor as well, to the women who have been exploited, to children who have been exploited by work. It must apologize for having blessed so many weapons,” Francis told reporters aboard the plane taking him back to Rome from Armenia.
Pope Francis’ apology if ordained by the Vatican, would bring Christianity closer to Reformed Judaism.
Ironically, in July 2014, Pope Francis Bergoglio, Catholic Jesuit Superior General Adolfo Pachon and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby were found guilty of rape, torture, murder and trafficking of children by five judges of the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels (here).
This is not the first time Francis has opened his heart to the LGBT community. In April 2016, Francis became the first head of Catholic Church to open St. Peter’s door to LGBT community.
Justin Welby like Francis also claims that criticism of Israel or Zionism is an old-fashioned anti-Semitism.
In a 256-page document, entitled, The Joy of Love, released in April, Francis challenged centuries-old Vatican dogma that had condemned homosexuality as an ‘un-natural’ practice, and thus a sin. However, this document outlines a significant change in attitude towards Vatican’s stance on family matters including the same-sex marriage which have been declared kosher in 38 American states.
In January 2016, Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, born in to a German Jewish family, “apologized for the ‘hurt and pain’ the Anglican Church has inflicted on lesbian, gays and transgender people,” (The Guardian, January 15, 2016).
Thomas Brennan has called Pope Francis: A longtime Zionist tool.
