I THINK THIS PICTURE EXPLAINS WHY POPE FRANCIS PREDICTED HE WOULD BE A SHORT LIVED POPE

Christians as a group tend to be intolerant.  There is no doubt in my mind the more hateful Catholics are going to react very negatively to the following statements by Pope Francis.  Is it any wonder Joshua has never returned.  

"Aboard a flight home from Armenia, Pope Francis fielded a pointed question from reporters: Did he agree with German Cardinal Reinhard Marx, who, in the wake of the Orlando shooting, said gays deserve an apology from the Church?

His answer was frank.
"I believe that the Church not only should apologize to the person who is gay whom it has offended," the Pope told reporters, "but has to apologize to the poor, to exploited women, to children exploited for labor; it has to ask forgiveness for having blessed many weapons."

"The Church must say it is sorry for not having behaved as it should many times, many times — when I say 'the Church,' I mean we Christians because the Church is holy; we are the sinners," the Pope said. "We Christians must say we are sorry."
Marx, a close adviser to Pope Francis, had told a conference in Dublin that the Church must apologize for having consistently marginalized gay people in the course of its history. At the mention of the Orlando shooting, theCatholic News Service reports the Pope closed his eyes as if in pain — then expanded on Marx's comments.

Someone should show that picture and words to Donald Trump; maybe, just maybe he might get it. Nah, Jesus was right.
No, he wont get it.
