Letter: The pope’s hypocrisy
August 02, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,
Your paper on Tuesday carried a story about how Pope Francis says he will not judge gay priests (“Pope says he won’t judge gay priests” in the July 30 edition of the Daily Journal), that “if someone is gay and searches for the Lord, and has good will, who am I to judge?”
At the same time, your paper failed to carry his comments about women becoming priests in which he said, “that door is closed.”
The hypocrisy here is blatant and clear evidence that the Catholic church still is not a place for women. How can he claim to not judge gays and at the same time clearly judge women as being unfit to serve God as men can? In the future, please carry all the important parts of a story.
