What once seemed like an isolated green-paint incident is now officially a wave. Fortunately, they caught the lady who had allegedly been splattering paint on the Lincoln Memorial, the National Cathedral and a Smithsonian statue. (Washington National Cathedral photo)

Pope Francis on Monday continued to recast the Catholic Church’s image by focusing on its inviting, merciful aspects, this time shocking a planeload of reporters by saying of homosexuality: “Who am I to judge?”

“If they accept the Lord and have goodwill, who am I to judge them?” the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics said in a remarkably candid and off-the-cuff news conference en route to Rome from Brazil. “They shouldn’t be marginalized.”

The pope’s seemingly casual remark was another example of his approachable style, which was on full display during his visit to Rio de Janeiro for World Youth Day. He carried his own bag onto the plane and traveled around Rio in a small Fiat without being shielded by hordes of security. He met with recovering drug addicts in a hospital and condemned inequality in a visit to crime-ridden slums.

He made his comments about gays, signaling that the church looks on them as brothers and sisters, as he fielded questions from reporters for an 80-minute stretch, at times leaning on the back of an airplane seat as if he were just another passenger. With his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, reporters had to submit questions ahead of time, and the Vatican decided which ones the pontiff would answer.

… His predecessor made remarks that many gay Catholics interpreted as hostile. Even though Benedict called on Catholics to show “great respect for [gay] people,” he oversaw the publication of a church document that called homosexual inclinations “disordered” and called for men with “deep-seated” gay tendencies to be barred from the priesthood. He also said same-sex marriage was insidious threat to the common good.



The Washington Post, "Pope Francis Calls for Inclusion of Gays In Society, Saying He Has No Right to ‘Judge.’"

Oh don’t worry, the rest of the Catholic Church leadership won’t follow.

Let’s try and do something a little different than what we normally do on this Tumblr.

Let’s raise money to help DEFEND WOMEN’S RIGHTS.

50% of proceeds from this shirt will go to Planned Parenthood to help fight for Texas women.

Get the shirt for $15 here: http://teespring.com/defendwomensrights


More info:

As women (and men) battle old politicians over control of their own bodies, it’s quite clear that the very real War on Women is in full swing. With many like-minded individuals following and reading this Public Shaming Tumblr blog, I would like to try something a little bit different here. Let’s raise money to help fight that fight and defend women’s rights together.

Like many of you, I have very much been inspired by the brave women and men who are fighting for women’s rights in Texas and elsewhere across the country. You all saw some of the reaction posted here directed at Texas State Senator Wendy Davis who stood for near 13 hours and spoke out to defend Texas women’s rights.  

Thanks to a great female designer, who is a friend of this site, we’re setting up a Teespring campaign. For $15, you’ll get this Defend Women’s Rights t-shirt with Wendy Davis’ now iconic sneakers which have come to represent our weapon of choice: taking a stand and letting our voice be heard. This site will donate 50% of everything we make to Planned Parenthood so they can defend those rights. The rest will go towards work on (hopefully with your help) putting together more campaigns so this site can continue to positively help raise money for more causes. Via a Teespring campaign, you will only be charged and the shirts will only be printed if we sell at least 150 of them.
