Mystery at the Vatican

A week ago the Roman Catholic Church shocked the world by calling for homosexuals to be welcomed into the church.  Two days ago the Roman Catholic Church took it back.

The interim report from the two-week conference of bishops raised a lot of hopes among LGBT Catholics with its accepting tone.  But the final report revealed that the conservative bishops aren't ready to let Pope Francis have his way on this issue.

The most interesting bit to me was the fact that the first version of the report spoke of gays having "gifts and qualities," but those words were dropped from the final version.  How could we lose our positive attributes in less than a week?  Who took them?
