The Pope should say the same thing to his diminishing flock: “You don’t have to be straight to worship God in a Catholic Church; just do your cross straight.”
With all the other pressing problems facing the World, surely the Pope could have found a less divisive issue to talk about.
Yet he wasted a chance to send us a unifying message — in the most receptive Holiday Season.
The devout will never correct the Pope, but Christ Himself is lamenting yet another missed opportunity.
