A few of the quotes from Pope Francis on homosexuality: "I see clearly that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and warm the hearts of the faithful; it needs nearness, proximity." [I LOVE THE HEALING WOUNDS, WARMING THE HEARTS -- FITS TOGETHER WELL WITH PUTTING PIECES BACK TOGETHER ONCE AGAIN.] "During the return flight from Rio de Janeiro I said that if a homosexual person is of good will and is in search of God, I am no one to judge. By saying this, I said what the catechism says. Religion has the right to express its opinion in the service of the people, but God in creation has set us free: it is not possible to interfere spiritually in the life of a person." "A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if I approved of homosexuality. I replied with another question: 'Tell me: when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?'"
