Cardinal Timothy Dolan On Pope Francis
Dolan appeared on CBS This Morning today to downplay Pope Francis' seemingly more kind tone towards gay people. Igor Volsky recaps at Think Progress:
Dolan insisted that the Church has long embraced gay people and that Francis’ answer did not represent a new tone or establish a more liberal precedent. “Homosexual acts,” he said, are still a sin. “Homosexuality is not a sin, right? Homosexual acts are,” Dolan said, “just like heterosexuality is not a sin outside of marriage, that would be sinful.” “While certain acts may be wrong, [the Pope] would always love and respect the person and treat the person with dignity and not judge them,” Dolan continued.
