Should we judge Pope Francis?

I hope you non-Catholics will find my reflections helpful. Catholics often presume that everyone understands the sin/confess/sin/confess wash cycle that is part of our tradition. I never thought about it until a classmate in Rome told me that is why he converted. He said Catholic boys got to do everything and then just go to confession once a week! Anyway: Here's what I said about Pope Francis' recent comments.

Please support my SMARTRide 

As a gay tour guide and travel writer, I have been on a bike more often this year than ever before in my 62 years. Unless the knees give out before November, I will be bicycling 165 miles from Miami to Key West  to raise money to support HIV/AIDS organizations and initiatives. 

This won't mean much without your support.

You know I'll be posting photos and writing about every juncture of the ride. Please consider cheering me on with your donation. Thanks!
