The Pope says God makes some people gay. Now get over it.

Pope Francis asperges holy water as he celebrates a Pentecost mass in St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican Sunday

"It knows the language of such wisdom of caresses, of silence, of the gaze that knows compassion", he said, explaining that this attitude is also representative of those people who live as part of the Church, knowing that they are "[like] a mother [and] must go along the same path: "a person [who is] gentle, tender, smiling, full of love".

Contrary to the interpretations of the mainstream media, the pope's comments do not seem to contradict Catholic teaching, which considers homosexuality "objectively disordered" and contrary to God's law. Another person wrote, "Pope Francis really truly is a wonderful human being. The pope loves you as you are, you have to be happy with who you are". Cruz revealed to Pope Francis that he is gay.

The Vatican has refused to confirm or deny the remarks, citing its policy not to comment on the pope's private conversations.

The priest who abused him was never brought to trial for his crimes in Chile, but was barred from preaching after being found guilty by the Vatican back in 2011.

Pope Paul VI, the first pontiff to visit Israel and open the Roman Catholic Church to formal dialogue with the Jewish world, will be canonized on October 14.

In 2013, Francis famously remarked, "If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with goodwill, who am I to judge?" when pressed for his views on homosexuality. In 2005 it banned openly gay men from becoming priests.

Kristen Stewart flouts footwear ban at Cannes Film Festival

North Korea has begun dismantling nuclear test site
The researchers published an analysis of satellite images from May 7th of the nuclear facility on Monday. A photo of the west portal shows that nearby buildings have also been demolished.

Cruz told Spanish newspaper El Pais: 'He told me: "Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter". Even "God loves you like this" isn't a terribly surprising statement because Christian faith teaches that God loves all of us even in our current state of sinfulness.

As for Catholics attending daily mass at the Denver Basillica - appreciation for the Pope's words. The Church is holy, we are sinners!

Eneas Espinoza, a Chilean man who claims to have been abused while at a school run by the Marist brothers, called on the pope to pursue a canonical prosecution that could see them stripped of all titles and benefits. "Tendencies, hormonal imbalance, have and cause so many problems..." Not to say that it's all the same, but in each case, welcome, accompany, study, discern and integrate. While we have a way of celebrating our love through civil partnerships and same-sex marriage, we also need to keep working to allow LGBT people of faith to marry in church and declare their love in the eyes of God.

After attending a crisis meeting with Francis about the cover-up last week, all of Chile's bishops offered to resign.

But Francis was reassuring, Cruz said.
