Pope Francis reported to have used derogatory phrase about homosexuals

Recommended Posts

Pope Francis has reportedly said there is “too much *****ry” among trainee priests in remarks that will confound those who regarded him as being sympathetic to homosexuals in the Catholic Church.

The 87-year-old Argentinian pontiff reportedly made the remarks in a behind-closed-doors address to bishops last week but they leaked out to the Italian press on Monday.

He said he was opposed to trainee priests – known as seminarians – leading a “double life” by purporting to be celibate but secretly being gay.

According to multiple Italian news outlets on Monday night, citing different sources, Francis told a gathering of the Italian Bishops’ Conference: “There’s already too much *****ry” in seminaries.

In the Philadelphia area if a Catholic kid was showing signs of being gay he was usually shipped off to the seminary so no surprises there.

Pope Francis has apologised for using an offensive slur during a discussion with bishops about admitting gay men into seminaries, saying he “never intended to offend or express himself in homophobic terms”.

Well, he is only a human. Not much holiness in him. Being a Pope is a political tenure.

He said "faggots" which is a bit derogatory. But as the Pope is infallible, he obviously didn't say it.

The meeting was in Italian, the word was frociaggine, and Google's translation bot agrees that faggots is a reasonable English translation, and the treatment of the term by two Italian language media outlets bears this out.

According to the BBC , the Vatican has aplogized, so that suggests there is no lively dispute about whether or not Frank said it, despite the lack of video or audio. (Still Waters gave the Guardian version of the apology story earlier in the thread, but that outlet has a dodgy record IMO when translations are salient.)

Because of kissing a boy in the mouth? And I didn't say that Pope is an idiot. He is a pretty smart guy, but just a guy.
