VATICAN CITY Pope Francis has denounced anti-gay discrimination as reminiscent of Nazi-era persecutions and evidence of a "culture of hatred" that has re-emerged today.
Francis made the comments in a wide-ranging speech Friday to an international penal law association. He said some public officials speak about persecuted groups the same way Adolf Hitler referred to Jews in the 1930s.
He said: "These are actions that are typical of Nazism, that with its persecution of Jews, gypsies, people with homosexual orientation, represent an excellent model of the throwaway culture and culture of hatred."

Thank God that the Reformation happened and freed Christians to follow the denomination of their choice and their conscience, so they arent required to submit to the monopolistic power of the Church of Rome with its often corrupt bureaucratic leaders, who often remind me of politicized teacher union officials
“Sodom and Gomorrah”
Three words that
Ring in my ears.
I dont believe Jesus commands us to entrust our children to a bureaucracy that has often covered for ichild-abusing priests
Thats why the freedom secured by the Reormation - allowing completion and choice between denominations - was a Great Leap Forward for Christianity
Maybe his Eminence needs to address the ghey and pedo scourge within his business instead of trying to get decent folks to shut up and not denounce that pervasive function and history of the Catholic priesthood. Denunciation and shunning of that element within his church is not persecution.
It is a DEMAND that Catholic Clergy be PURGED of ACTIVE HOMOSEXUALS!!
They are supposed to be CELIBATE!!!!
Not just unmarried!!!
I wish this Dope Francis were as Antifag as he is Antifa.
Imagine what it was like before the Reformation, when all Christians had to submit to one monopolistic ecclesiastical bureaucracy?
I hope they don’t elevate another democrat to the popehood when this one tees off.
The previous pope didn’t die in office, time for this commie stooge to go.
The Pope is Hitler... or Stalin or some evil name called creature from a list of past totalitarians...
What a transparent yawn the Pope has become.
This idiot pope has done more to fundamentally destroy the catholic church than even Obama did to America.
When will the Trump of the catholic church arrive to save it?
“I hope they dont elevate another democrat to the popehood when this one tees off.”
Given that he’s appointed enough new heretical cardinals that think like him, yours may be a faint hope.
‘Imagine what it was like before the Reformation, when all Christians had to submit to one monopolistic ecclesiastical bureaucracy?’
don;t know, but I’m sure you’re going to tell us all about it...for the fourth time...
Im RC and I am not required to follow every idiotic statement of this man. Part of me believes that Pope Benedict is still the pope.
Great comments BUMP!
What about gays abusing the F out of Christians? Demanding they violate their religious beliefs by baking cakes that celebrate sodomy?
Pope’s an abomination.
Dear Pope, Defending gays might tee off your fellow Muzzies so be careful.
