Church OK with monk telling gay people to die but it takes issue with him trashing the Pope

A homophobic monk has been excommunicated from Catholic church not because for his vehemently antigay actions, which have resulted in at least one hate crime conviction, but because he trash talked the Pope in a blog post.

Damon Jonah Kelly was kicked out of the church by the Bishop of Argyll and the Isles after he wrote a scathing post attacking Pope Francis for “behaving in an ambiguous fashion towards homosexuals” and calling him a “great heretic.”
