Someone once said that if the Archbishop of Canterbury says he believes in God, that is all in the way of normal business; but if he says he does not believe in God, he is probably speaking honestly. Pope Francis, fresh off a rockstar Mass on Copacabana beach in Rio, said in a mid-air interview en route back to Babylon–Rome, pardon me–that “if someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Who am I to judge? So much for authoritative magisterial mediation of the boundaries of heaven, hell, and purgatory? Seems like most every day is casual day for Francis. In all–or some–seriousness, I think he is actually trying to focus on the big issues of global poverty and suffering, and revitalizing the Roman Catholic Church’s life in light of that focus. I imagine that making news now with comments on sexuality is his way of moving toward his plans to fry bigger fish.
