A report from the Vatican on Monday said that members of the gay community “have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community,” but now it might be backtracking on those comments. It depends on who you ask.
It looks like the Vatican is shiftings its view on gays. Senior clerics who are participating in a review on Catholic teachings are calling for the Church to adopt a more positive position on homosexuality.
A preliminary report written by bishops who are taking part in a Vatican synod that was called by Pope Francis to debate abortion, contraception, homosexuality and divorce, says:
“Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community.”
A group called the dotgay Initiative has been reaching out to organizations, such as GaySocialites.com, for years in hopes of creating an online gay community using the ‘.gay’ domain. Now that ICANN, the group in charge of online domain names, has created the ‘.gay’ domain; the dotgay Initiative is being excluded. Evidently, because they aren’t gay enough.
