“A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if I approved of homosexuality. I replied with another question: ‘Tell me: when God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?’ We must always consider the person.” -Pope Francis
I’ve never been able to fully relate to someone who is homosexual. Growing up in a small town where "Paper Boy" was still a job title until 2010, everyone knew your family and your business, and the graduating class was less than 100 students, I never witnessed the out casting a gay individual has to face on any given circumstance.
