COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN RUSSIA TODAY

Pope Francis has certainly made mistakes, but overall, I like what he is doing, and it is the right thing to do.

He is gradually bringing the Church into the 21st century from the 14th.

The ancients who wrote the Bible knew absolutely nothing about science. They believed nonsense like pork and shellfish were “unclean.”

Science today tells us that homosexuality is a naturally-occurring phenomenon, just like red hair or left-handedness.

It is estimated that up to ten percent of any large population is homosexual.

Being homosexual is not a crime or a sin, it is a trait.

If you are observant, you can even see it in other mammals, such as pet dogs.

Response to a comment:

‘Virtue signaling’ is a pretty threadbare pop phrase.

The great philosopher, David Hume, said that taking credit for a virtuous quality was itself a virtuous act, and I very much agree with him.
