Pope Francis has said all transsexuals and homosexuals should be ‘welcomed’ and embraced by the Catholic Church.
“I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Luke 13:3 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: Pope Francis is adamant that the Catholic Church must “welcome and accept transgenders and homosexuals” but does not say that homosexuality is a sin. Would the Jesus of the Bible turn away a homosexual who came to Him? No…but…the Jesus of the Bible would tell that man or women they needed to repent and turn from their sin. Pope Francis says they should be welcomed just as they are with no need for them to repent and get saved. That’s a doctrine of the Devil.
Francis said Jesus would never have turned away transgender people and revealed he had ministered to homosexuals as a priest, bishop and now as Pope.
‘When a person arrives before Jesus, Jesus certainly will not say, ‘Go away because you are homosexual’,’ the religious leader said.
Pope Francis: Global Warming is SIN – Homosexuality is NOT
‘Each case must be welcomed, accompanied, studied, discerned and integrated. This is what Jesus would do today.’
Francis said he had ministered to gay people throughout his career in the Catholic Church.
He said: ‘I’ve never abandoned them. When someone who has this condition comes before Jesus, Jesus would surely never say ‘go away because you’re gay’.’
Francis recounted the story of a Spanish transgender man who wrote him a letter recounting his transition from a woman to a man, who later married a woman.
The Pope said: ‘And I received them. And they were happy.’ source
