Is J osephine McKenna Careless With the Truth, Ill-Informed or Does She Know Something We Don't Know

A USCatholic writer claims, against all researchable information, that
Francis, the first non-European pope in 1,300 years, has expressed tolerance on a range of issues, famously asking “Who am I to judge?” about gay relationships. 
I am not saying he didn't. I cannot claim to know everything he has ever said, and of course, it is virtually impossible to "prove" a negative.

But hers is one of the most spectacularly inept and agenda driven statements I have ever heard in a sacred or secular, putatively "news" medium.

Gay "relationships"? that's what he was talking about?

Seriously, USCatholic?

Your own d***** periodical reports nothing that he said in relation to relationship.
“I think that when we encounter a gay person, we must make the distinction between the fact of a person being gay and the fact of a lobby, because lobbies are not good. … If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge that person?” 
 Get it, Miss M cKenna?

It seems to be a part of many agendas, which are much more unashamedly sharing the sheets with politics than with the Church, to insist that that Pope Francis supports so-called same-sex "marriage."

So you, Miss M cKenna, by claiming that Francis said gay marriage is, (to paraphrase someone else,) "above his pay grade,)" are either,
1. privy to information not available to the general populace
2. remarkably ignorant of or lazy about facts, (the knowledge of which,  the job in which you are installed I would have thought it your duty to know and disseminate,) or,
3.deliberately engaging in falsehood because of your own agenda, and consequentially, less than fastidious about lying misrepresenting facts to bolster your own position.

So which is it?

You tell me ...
