Limbaugh is right. Somebody did get to Pope Francis. It was Jesus. Self-styled “defenders of Christianity,” like Palin and Limbaugh, peddle a profoundly unhistorical view of Jesus. Indeed, if you listened to those on the far right you would think that all Jesus ever spoke about was guns and gays.

If Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin don’t like the pope, they won’t care much for Jesus (via azspot)

It is not enough simply to open the door in welcome, but we must go out through that door to seek and meet the people. … Be servants of communion and of the culture of encounter. Permit me to say that we must be almost obsessive in this matter. We do not want to be presumptuous, imposing ‘our truths.’
Pope Francis • Speaking to an audience of bishops and priests in Rio de Janeiro on the need for members of the Catholic Church to reach out to the public. The trip to Brazil is the Pope’s first trip abroad since first taking over for the still-alive Pope Benedict.

Never in a million years would I intentionally hurt another person. Yet, here I sit having hurt so many by failing to acknowledge the pain some affiliated with Exodus International caused, and by failing to share the whole truth about my own story. My good intentions matter very little and fail to diminish the pain and hurt others have experienced on my watch. The good that we have done at Exodus is overshadowed by all of this.
Alan Chambers, former president of Exodus International • Apologizing to the LGBT community in a new letter posted on the official Exodus International website ahead of a new Chambers family interview with Lisa Ling which will air on Thursday night. Alan Chambers has apparently decided to close Exodus International, citing his changing beliefs and recognition of the irreparable harm the group has done, and is taking quite a bit of flack over the decision. source
