The Methodist Pope?

CBS News reports that Pope Francis affirms the United Methodist Church’s position on the ordination of gay clergy:

When questioned on what his response would be upon learning that a cleric was gay, though not sexually active, the Argentinian-born pontiff said he wouldn’t judge gay priests and explained, “You can’t marginalize these people.”

“If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” he said.

I’m sure the news outlet’s failure to mention that the Pope’s position on this question mirrors the UMC was an editorial oversight.
