Just when you think that there is a progressive Pope, you are suddenly disappointed to realize that nothing has really changed. Whether or not you agree with the decisions of the transgender, LGBTQ communities of people, it really boils down to this — they are human beings with feelings that transcend what we non-transgender, LGBTQ folks can even comprehend at times. We [straight folks] haven’t walked in their shoes and experienced their pain and sorrow of having to keep their emotions in checked for being in fear of reprise and judgement from others. Who are we to judge? God can be the only judge in the end because He/She only knows what this human being has had to endure.
I will not judge or be judged by anyone. God is my God. God is our God.
