Pope Francis──the representative of God on earth has endorsed same-sex civil unions and according to him, homosexuals are also children of God and have the right to be in a family.
Shocking right? Yes, Pope Francis endorsed same-sex civil unions in a feature-length film, titled Francesco, which was premiered at the Rome Film Festival earlier on.
The film is about most of the things Pope Francis cares about such as the environment, poverty, migration, racial and income inequality, and the people most affected by discrimination.
According to the 83-year-old Pope in one of his sit-down interviews for the film;
“Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable over it. What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered”.
Pope Francis’ endorsement of same-sex civil unions has shocked millions of Catholics and Christians who have long held the doctrine that homosexuality is a sin against the Almighty God.
