Pope Francis and "Who am I to judge?"


The Catholic Reporter, in a story by Joshua J. McElwee, explains (Jan. 10) Pope Francis and his position on LGBT people, “Who am I to judge?” here.
 
Back in the 1980s, the Vatican had created controversy with a confusing diatribe trying to separate inclination or purpose from actual behavior, but calling the tendency the beginning of an “objective disorder”.  My own legacy essay on this matter (2006) is here; see note 6 especially.
 
Note the links in the story about “mercy”, as someone confounding to normal human “logic”.
