QUOTE TO NOTE: Ricky Martin for Pope?

In an essay on reviving the Vatican II style of church, Australian writer Will Day discusses how an encounter with LGBT issues helped solidify his resolve for working for better ecclesial leadership.  He offers an interesting example of the type of leadership that he would like to see:

Ricky Martin

“Latin American pop star Ricky Martin [who is gay], alive to the horror of certain church teachings, appeared on talk shows in the US last year, looking straight at the camera and telling gay kids, ”I want you to know there is nothing wrong with you, and I love you!” There’s a role model for a decent pope or bishop!”

–Francis DeBernardo, New Ways Ministry
