Is The Pope Homophobic?

A homosexual Catholic Priest has joined Vice President Biden in accusations about homophobia.



They might both do well to review the definition of the word, Homophobic:  “Fear, hatred, or mistrust of lesbians and gay men.”

The firing of this openly homosexual Priest, or the opposition to homosexuality by Presidential candidates does not rise to the level of this definition.  The position of the Vatican and various Presidential candidates is not founded in fear, hatred or mistrust.  It is based on what the Scripture teaches on the issue of homosexuality; that it is a sin and an abomination.  There is quite a difference between reality and the accusation of this team of homosexual supporters (the Priest and Biden), who might both be called “Scripture-phobic”.  While they are joined by many others in thumbing their nose at God, it does not change that fact that Scripture is very clear on the subject, and they (the Scripture-phobes) reject the Scriptures.

Franklin Graham issued a statement of support for the Vatican:

“The Vatican fired an openly gay priest Saturday after he came out right before their meeting of the world’s bishops. The priest said in a press conference that his coming out was a “difficult and tough decision in the church’s homophobic world.” I have news for everyone – Believing what God’s Word says about homosexuality is not homophobic! Firing the gay priest was the right thing for the Catholic Church to do. The priest said in several interviews that he was happy and proud to be a gay priest. One should not be “happy and proud” to go against God’s will, His laws, and His very design for creation.”

It would be reasonable to expect the Catholic Church to remain true to its creed and doctrine (the Bible).  The Vatican should be commended for it’s commitment to the Word of God on this issue.

The Pope is not homophobic.

    People who affirm what God has said about homosexual behavior are no more “afraid of homosexuals” than God Himself is.

    God has lots of FORMER homosexuals in his kingdom, as he does former drunks (I am one), former fornicators, former swindlers, and all manner of other former lifestyle-sinners. He loves us all, because we have placed our faith not in our own righteousness, but in the righteousness of Jesus Christ.

    Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
