The Things They Say About The Pope’s Hypocrisy

“This is one of the paradoxes and weird hypocrisy of that organization. The Pope came out last year and said who am I to judge with regards to somebody’s sexual orientation? But I think it is important to differentiate between lip service towards something and actually making change. I think it is hopeful, but saying this in 2015, ‘Who am I to judge?’ is something that should have been said 100 years ago. I think there’s a difference when actual doctrine changes and policy changes – but it’s still undeniably an organization that has institutionalized an aversion to homosexuality. In my view, that is why I was driven to write ‘Take Me to Church’ — I think the church provides an excuse for homophobia.”

— Pop star Hozier, who has a massive hit last year with Take Me to Church, told Larry King that Pope Francis is a hypocrite on LGBT issues and utters pro-gay soundbites while changing little.
