Quote Of The Day – Father Tony Adams

“Because there are no overtly gay-friendly cardinals on earth, when the
115 voting-age scarlet princes glided into the Sistine chapel to select

Pope Francis does some serious backpedaling from his anti-gay words and
record in Buenos Aires, the ‘Extra Omnes’ [Everybody out!] that is

exhortation to gay Catholics to feel free to come out of their closets
and to share love openly.” – Father Tony Adams, writing for South Florida Gay News.
