Rome, July 30 - Recent comments on homosexuality by
Pope Francis represent a "turning point", Catholic philosopher
and author Giovanni Reale said on Tuesday.
In a candid exchange with journalists on Monday as he ended
his first foreign trip as pontiff, Pope Francis turned heads
when he said that he could not judge someone for being gay.
Reale, who edited the writings of Pope John Paul II, said in
an interview with Italian daily Corriere della Sera that the
"Church must not condemn those who differ, but should help
them".
"Although, according to the doctrine of the Church,
homosexuality is a mistake because it is written in Bible, the
example that applies is that of Christ who taught that who is
without sin cast the first stone,"
"The Church is doctrine, but, above all, it is example. If
you do not believe that Christ is contemporary and that His
message should speak to today, then faith is over," Reale said.
