The Vatican Blames Homophobic Statement on the Media - Big Surprise!

     The Catholic Church once again blames the media for its latest homophobic outburst that gays "will never go to heaven."

     The Catholic News Agency reports:

     Italian Vatican analyst Andrea Tornielli said this week that the statement, “Homosexuals and transsexuals will never enter the Kingdom of God,” attributed to Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan, president emeritus of the Pontifical Council for Health Care, is “very likely” an “improper synthesis on the part of the interviewer,” Italian journalist Bruno Volpe.
     Tornielli explained that “the Church is right to condemn a certain homosexual ideology, but she cannot close the gates of paradise to homosexuals and transsexuals because judgment, thanks be to God, waits for God, and Catholic theology has always taught that the possibility of repentance of one’s sins imploring divine mercy exists until the end.”
     For this reason, and considering the fact that Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan “is a theologian,” Tornielli continued, “I cannot believe that he made these statements, which in all likelihood are an improper synthesis on the part of the  interviewer,” Italian journalist Bruno Volpe.
     Of course!  It was the media's fault and not holy (dysfunctional) mother church's fault.

     It has nothing to do with the church's catechism, paragraph 2358 which conveniently states: Every sign of unjust discrimination in their [homosexuals'] regard should be avoided." Which leaves wide open the embrace and practice of what the church sees as just discrimination.  For examples see California Proposition 8 and Maine Question 1.
