A Sign of Hope ?

I really hope these news reports are true.  For far too long the church has ignored the great chasm between what it teaches about homosexuality and what happens in the real world. It's about time the church set aside its predjudice as it has with torture, burning people alive, slavery and anti-semitism.

Perhaps then a renewed and more authentic church, truer to the teaching of Jesus, could live the Good News, taking his love into a thirsty world. Would'nt that be a new second spring of hope for the church and the world ?

Here's the two articles :-

Benedict resignation linked to inquiry into 'Vatican gay officials', says paper

Pope's staff decline to confirm or deny La Repubblica claims linking 'Vatileaks' affair and discovery of 'blackmailed gay clergy'
