Pope has gained a new insight

Gay Catholic Andrew Sullivan:
But surely the insight he has grasped — that murder is worse than contraception — is so basic it should prompt a reflection on the dogma as a whole.
Or else so basic you don't need any pope to figure it out.
If you are wondering where Jesus would stand on perpetuating the infections and deaths of million or adjusting a technical religiously mandated rule, then you haven't read the Gospels in quite a while.
Because it's self-defeating for an institution devoted to the infallible legislation, enforcement, and adjudication of its own particular species of religious dogma to remind anybody of those Pharisees.
