He urged priests around the world to be more accepting of gays and lesbians, divorced Catholics and other people living in what the church considers “irregular” situations.
“A pastor cannot feel that it is enough simply to apply moral laws … as if they were stones to throw at people’s lives,” Francis writes in a sweeping paper outlining his stance on family matters.
He urges more common sense and less unthinking following of rules.
“By thinking that everything is black and white, we sometimes close off the way of grace and growth,” he writes.
He emphasizes that “unjust discrimination” against gays and lesbians is unacceptable, downplays the idea of “living in sin” and suggests that priests should use their own discretion on whether divorced Catholics in new marriages can take Communion.

The Truth Behind Hip Hop Part 7: Mother Of All Gods

The word of God says that we are not to provoke our children unto wrath, yet a generation of fatherless children has emerged, provoked by their situation to rebel against God and society. How is the devil promoting this fatherless agenda thru Hip Hop, and worse, in what ways is the church perpetuating this cycle? Also, what is behind the gender-bending obsession with today’s youth? In The Truth Behind Hip Hop Part 7, “Mother of All Gods,” Elder G. Craige Lewis goes in depth, into unchartered territory, to expose the harlot of Babylon’s assignment against this generation. If you thought you’ve seen it all, you haven’t. This is unlike any DVD in “The Truth Behind Hip Hop” series. The information in this DVD will not only open your eyes to the secret agenda of the enemy through entertainment, government, religion and fatherlessness, but will also equip you in your stand for the kingdom of God.  (Click here to order)
