Who am I to judge?

Pope Francis made news with his statement about gay people: "If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge them?"

And from behind a thundercloud, God responded: "I made them that way, who am I to judge?"

But in all semi-seriousness, Rabbi Rockower agrees. And while this didn't officially change church position, something that I still disagree with, it is definitely a good start.  It is such a shame Pope Francis didn't succeed Pope John Paul (he was second in the balloting behind Ratzinger).
