Popes yes, there are many members of the clergy, however, who are in support of gay marriage, we have a very vocal priest here in Melbourne who is often on the news condemning discrimination of LGBTQ people in the Catholic church.

My issue isn't with personal belief, rather with what is publicly preached. We will see what this Pope chooses to openly preach and what he won't, but Benedict was a perfect example of someone who chose to spread ignorance (condoms cause HIV) and hate (using his Christmas address to condemn gay parents).
