As we recognize Black History Month this February, it’s a perfect time to remember and honor all the of same-sex loving black figures who have stood out throughout the course of our nation’s history— people who marched, protested, and fought to help bring the LGBT communities to where we are today.
The Vatican - Pope Francis strongly implied that Donald Trump is un-Christian in a February 8 sermon, while Trump advisor Steve Bannon has been working with traditionalist Catholic clergy to undermine the pontiff. “In the social and civil context as well, I appeal not to create walls but to build bridges,’ the pope said in his weekly catechism lesson. “To not respond to evil with evil. To defeat evil with good, the offense with forgiveness. A Christian would never say 'you will pay for that.' Never. That is not a Christian gesture. An offense you overcome with forgiveness. To live in peace with everyone.” Francis has used the 'bridge not walls' theme before. Last year, after visiting the US-Mexican border, the pope replied to a question about Trump by saying that anyone who wants to build a wall instead of a bridge is “not Christian.”
