Pope Francis legalizes same-sex marriages in a new documentary. He calls for creating civil union laws for same-sex couples, which amounts to his most transparent support. In his documentary, Francis says that same-sex partners are “legally entitled to the rule of law,” according to the Catholic News Agency. “Francesco,” is a new documentary that will premier in Rome and the US this week, so don’t miss it. Evgeny Afineevsky interviewed the Pope, who said, “homosexuals have a right of a family membership.”
Not that he has a right to judge, but this shocked many of his staunch followers. Pope has lowered the stands of God’s law according to the video below.
Popularly, Francis spoke in 2013 of a gay person: “Who am I to judge?” Francis has also spoken to gay or lesbian Catholics of his ministry, claiming they are cherished by God and received by the Church. In 2014, Francis–though still a cardinal in Argentina–has sought, according to the Religion News Service, to ‘negotiate regarding the legalization of gay marriage with the Government of Argentina and signal that he will be open to civil unions as an option.’
“What we have to create is a civil union law,” Pope Francis said.
Pope Francis shared his concern for LGBT church members’ attention for a long time, but his statements frequently emphasized general and welcoming understanding instead of practical policies. Priests bless the same-sex union in some areas in the world. However, that position — and Francis’ latest statements — are not in line with the Church’s formal teaching and sense doctrine.
“They’re children of God and have a right to a family,” the Pope said. “Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable because of it.”
Pope Francis legalizes Same-sex Marriages: Is sin a Human Right?
Pope Francis sent ambiguous messages that were perceived to be open to lawful unions of the same sex. He generally presented his remarks in realistic, curious ways. He supports that gay families should be accepted lawfully for civil rights, such as health insurance, etc.
“This is the first time as pope he’s making such an explicit statement,” said Reverend James Martin, a distinguished Jesuit who asked the Church to embrace LGBT members publicly. “I think it’s a big step forward. In the past, civil unions were frowned upon in many quarters of the Church. He is putting his weight behind legal recognition of same-sex civil unions.”
Pope said to the parents of gay kids, “Let them express themselves”
In 2018, Pope Francis said children who show “homosexual tendencies” should be treated with understanding and not be condemned or ignored on a flight to Rome. (Reuters) The Church formally maintains that acts of the same sex are ‘distorted’ and Francis’ predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, considered homosexuality an “intrinsic ethical wrong.’ Francis did not change the church doctrine, but he drove apart the Church from that conservative vengeance position, accusing him of changing the preaching to contemporary times.
Have the Covents and Seminaries, Always Supported Gay Relationships?
In 2014, Francis made the news that year when the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera published an interview with him. RNS reported, during the interview, the Pope said, “the church is teaching that marriage is between a man and a woman. Yet the same church is acknowledging that governments’ adoption of civil unions for gay couples and others to allow for economic and other benefits.”
During the interview, Francis said that the churches in different countries should consider these reasons when preparing public proposed policies. “We must consider different cases and test each case,” Corriere Della Serra quoted the Pope.
The interview ignited media publicity and uproar. Many people said that Francis had entirely supported same-sex marriages. The Vatican immediately illuminated what Pope Francis had said and that people “should not try to read more into the pope’s words than what he has stated,” RNS reported in 2014. In 2016, Italy–other than Vatican City–was the last nation in Western Europe to give gay couples civil rights.
Francis has a reputation for offering words open to interpretation. In 2016, the Pope said, “there cannot be any confusion between the family willed by God and other kinds of unions.”
Christian denominations have been furious. In 2015, NBC’s query asked New York archbishop Tim Dolan if embracing gay unions will make him “uncomfortable”? Dolan responded that it would, so it might “water the conventional religious outlook on marriage,” reported the RNS article.
