PARIS (Reuters) France is standing by its nominee to be ambassador to the Holy See despite the Vatican's failure to confirm his posting for more than three months, a delay that French and Italian media said was due to his sexuality.

    Well, I’m sure Francis will figure this one out too. But one thing is clear:

    The real problem is NOT that France sent a gay man to represent them at the Vatican. The government of France made their choice; it is what it is.

    The real problem is that Pope Francis is still SUPPORTING legalized gay marriage, even though he claims he doesn’t personally favor gay marriage. He is forcing the USA bishops to diminish or mute their collective voice so as not to present a united, forceful political front against the Gay Marriage Cult, as they did with previous popes.

    Let’s be honest. That’s the REAL source of the “embarrassment” over this issue. Paris isn’t doing anything it doesn’t normally do. This diplomat is (through no fault of his own) reminding folks of the real problem, Francis’ problem.

    Another case of gays baiting for a confrontation. The Pope should simply not accept the French nominee as “unacceptable”, without explaining its reasoning. The Vatican does not need a French Ambassador, anyway….the Pope can just call its President. Let the ambassador seat stay vacant.

    Gay culture and the demands of its proponents has never changed:

    [b]“Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.

    But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.

    The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.” So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry his daughters. [/b]

    But the sons-in-law stayed with the sodomites.

    What a fascinating “myth” huh? Looks all too real.

    No, the bible is almost all myth, all the time. A few things in there that line up with the history of the authors (the many of them) who wrote it, but otherwise, just fiction. Very hate-promoting fiction, that is.

    It’s all false. Have a look at here, what he said about argentine gay marriage law
