Of course, for Atheists, this changes nothing.

This changes the fact that the Catholic church is showing tolerance and a hint of Coexistence which is a big leap from the past few years under Benedict.

You see, this is a line that I disagree with. The fact that he declares this now gives proper Catholics no right to tell an atheist (That is a good human) they are going to hell and that they're an abomination. That's one less attack atheists have to deal with in their lives. That is a change atheists deserve, and it is a change that does affect them.

Except it shows that there are more prominent people in the church that are decent human beings and not self-righteous religious 						********					 that should go die in a hole somewhere.    
   
I like Pope Franny now.

but he still hates gays, so he isnt on my like list.

He's catholic. It comes with the territory.
Also didn't he give a statement or something that people don't need to agree with what they do but should still be respectful?

I dont know but he did say that Homosexuals raising a child is similar to child abuse.

not joking, he actually said that.

and why was I thumbed down for stating a fact and being pro gay? I was only stating a fact that if he hates gays than he shouldnt be acknowledged fully. I am catholic but I have no problem with gays.

Right but most Catholics believe homosexuality is an abomination, so you would think that the catholic LEADER wouldn't be to fond of it. In fact aren't most Catholics called to follow the bible to the letter? Meaning not liking homosexuality? I mean gay bashing and not liking homosexuality are two different things. But he is doing things and pointing out things that Catholics should be doing. But that anti-anti-gay attitude is almost as bad as an anti-gay attitude.

Nothing in the bible says to hate the gays. It says its an abomination, but it doesnt really say how to treat them (at least I think thats true)

All I know is that the 2nd commandment is the only way the new Pope should be handling the gay situation. Love they neighbor as they self. If he isnt promoting that than he isnt promoting to followings of the bible.

Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."    
   
Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."   
   
Also this is the second commandment,   
"You shall not make for yourself an idol" under the Philonic division used by Hellenistic Jews, Greek Orthodox and Protestants except Lutherans.   
"You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol" under the Talmudic division of the third-century Jewish Talmud.   
"Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain" under the Augustinian division used by Roman Catholics and Lutherans.   
   
Now, what you are referring to is the teachings of jesus, which is the most important in almost all christian sects. However, he says to love thy neighbor, not agree with what they do.
