The Roman Catholic Church — as apostate as it has been since its inception — has taken on an even greater role in rejecting the the nature of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ in recent years. Since Pope Francis took office as the institution’s head of state, the Catholic Church has moved further and further not only to the political left, but theological left.

While the Roman Catholic Church has historically stood staunchly in opposition to cultural trends that are in rebellion to God’s nature — like abortion and homosexuality — the latest movement of the Church has been to not only accept, but affirm homosexuality.

As homosexual scandals plague the Catholic Church, Francis famously asserted in 2016 that he had no business judging homosexual behavior — “who am I to judge?”

Now, a top Roman Catholic official, Cardinal Matteo Maria Zuppi, archbishop of Bologna, Italy says that if we see people the way God does, then homosexuals will feel, “naturally, as part of the ecclesial community.”

VATICAN CITY (RNS) — Now more than ever, the Catholic Church has begun to address how to minister to members of the LGBT community, especially when it comes to spiritual guidance. Following in Pope Francis’ footsteps, an Italian archbishop invited Catholics to look at gays and lesbians “as God looks at them.”

“When communities will truly begin to look at people as God looks at them, then homosexual people — and everybody else — will begin to feel, naturally, a part of the ecclesial community,” said Cardinal Matteo Maria Zuppi, the archbishop of the northern Italian town of Bologna, in the preface of a newly released book.

The book, “Church and Homosexuality: An Inquiry in Light of Pope Francis’ Magisterium,” was written by Luciano Moia, the chief editor at the monthly magazine on family published by the Italian Bishops’ Conference. The book is hitting the shelves this week in Italy.

The Catholic Church considers gay and lesbian relationships as “intrinsically disordered” and does not recognize marriage between two people of the same sex. But starting with his famous quote “Who am I to judge?” in 2013, Pope Francis has promoted a more inclusive stance toward homosexuality in the Catholic Church. In his 2016 document on the family, “Amoris Laetitia” (the Joy of Love), Francis called for the need to come alongside members of the LGBT community, a position he has reiterated several times since.
