Pope Francis “Who am I to judge gay people?”

Pope Francis has shocked some of his most loyal Catholic followers to raise an eyebrow.
As the Pope continues his week long stay in Brazil he spoke today for nearly 2 hours, including some major conversations regarding the Catholic church hot-button issue of homosexuality.
“I have yet to find anyone who has a business card that says he is gay,” the pontiff said at a press conference in which he addressed the reports of a “gay lobby” within the Vatican. “They say they exist. If someone is gay, who searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?” he added. “The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains this very well. It says they should not be marginalized because of this (orientation) but that they must be integrated into society.”
