This is going to be interesting:

CBS.URGENT ADVISORY -- CBS RADIO NEWS


Pope Francis Spoke with CBS News and members of the press aboard the papal plane earlier today in route to Rome.

Headlines out of this briefing:

 The Pope said that It is not a crime to be gay, 'who am I to judge a gay person who follows God?'

 The Pope also talked about the role of women in the church should be more prominent. 

I agree it's not a crime to be gay. But the Bible clearly says it's a sin, so the part about who is he to judge a gay person who follows God, is going to make for some very interesting conversation. And it'll be interesting to see what his definition is of a "more prominent" role for women in the Church.
