We Forgive You Lord

Pope Francis recently made a statement that the Church and all Christians should  “… apologize to the person who is gay whom it has offended,” and added  that they also need to “…. apologize to the poor, to exploited women, to children exploited for labor; it has to ask forgiveness for having blessed many weapons.”

Considering that most of the basis for the Church and Christian behavior toward this group comes from commands as given by God through the “divinely” inspired Bible (see   2 Timothy  3:16-17), then I believe it is the Judeo-Christian God who needs our forgiveness.
