The Pope and the ‘Gay Lobby’

At a private audience on June 6, Pope Francis was quoted as saying: “The ‘gay lobby’ is mentioned, and it is true, it is there…We need to see what we can do.”

However much official church doctrine may rail against the so-called “homosexual lifestyle,” how could gays not have a noticeable presence in such a large and catholic organization as the Roman Catholic Church?

Dunno if everyone will get the reference, but the message should get through anyway.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Yeah, well, we both remember how well the religious abided by their own message that time, right?

I'd like to see the "gay lobby" at the Vatican.  I bet it's decorated much nicer than the old gothic style lobbies around the the rest of the place...
