LGBT groups say Pope Francis must embrace gays

'For decades the Catholic hierarchy has been in need of desperate reform,' said Herndon Graddick (pictured), president of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. 'In his life, Jesus condemned gays zero times,' he added. 'In Pope Benedict’s short time in the papacy, he made a priority of condemning gay people routinely.'

Pope Francis Against Gay Marriage, Gay Adoption

"For decades the Catholic hierarchy has been in need of desperate reform. In his life, Jesus condemned gays zero times. In Pope Benedict's short time in the papacy, he made a priority of condemning gay people routinely. This, in spite of the fact, that the Catholic hierarchy had been abetting in the cover up the widespread abuse of children within its care. We hope this Pope will trade in his red shoes for a pair of sandals and spend a lot less time condemning and a lot more time foot-washing."
