Pope for Trannies, too

This pope breaks new ground every day, partly because so many areas have been left untouched over the years.

Thank you to Pope Francis for granting a private audience to a transgender man from Spain, also a former member of a religious community who ousted him after his transition.


Diego Neria Lej√°rraga, who underwent sex-reassignment surgery and was subsequently rejected by his religious community, claims he reached out to Pope Francis in December and received a call from the pontiff on Christmas Eve, Spanish newspaper Hoy reported. On Saturday, Lej√°rraga and his fiancee told the paper they met with Pope Francis in his residence at the Vatican.

This pope is fearless.  He apparently wanted to give a pastoral voice to Diego and to learn about this issue first-hand.

Those surrounding the pope are not fearless, however.  No comment or verification from the Vatican.

Thank you also to Huffington Post and Religious News Service for this report.
