It’s Official! Pope Endorses Same-Sex Civil Unions

In a move everyone paying attention could see coming, Pope Francis threw off further restraint and gave his hearty endorsement to same-sex civil unions in comments while being interviewed for the new feature-length documentary Francesco, which premiered at the Rome Film Festival this morning.

The film, directed by Evgeny Afineevsky, covers the last 7 and a half years of the Pope’s reign and comes across suspiciously like a hagiography that illuminates the Pontiff in adulatory and flowery language. It features discussion on his deep concern for injustice, illegal immigration, and environmental concerns, and includes the spicy scene in question midway through where while sitting down for an interview, he says:

Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God. What we have to have is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered.

“What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered. I stood up for that.”

It’s not the first time that he has made controversial statements regarding Gay Marriage and the morality of homosexuality. He told a reproter in 2013, “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has goodwill, who am I to judge?”

One of the people that features prominently in the film is Juan Carlos Cruz, a sex-abuse victim of the Roman Catholic church who is also a homosexual. He is the chief whistleblower in the Chilean Romanist sex abuse scandal and spent 3 days in 2018 with Pope Francis, at the Vatican, telling CNN that in a private conversation with him Francis said:

You know Juan Carlos, that does not matter. God made you like this. God loves you like this. The Pope loves you like this and you should love yourself and not worry about what people say.

We also wrote about how last month, Pope Francis continued his trend of making off-the-cuff gay-affirming statements to those pushing him on the issue, telling a group of parents who have homosexual kids that “God loves your children as they are.” 

Defenders of the Pope who are uncomfortable with these comments have already begun to regurgitate the same old defenses, saying that the pope is not speaking “ex-cathedra” and therefore is simply giving his opinion, flawed that it is.

The film has no release date yet.

  1. What else would you expect from a man who allows himself to be referred to by three names reserved for the three persons of the Trinity, Holy Father, Alter Christus and the Vicar of Christ? This guy and the whole hierarchy of the church have to be atheists to think they’re going to get away with all their unrestrained blasphemy.

  2. another GOAT… Goats are goats… Sheep are sheep… the species doesn’t change… just what to expect from Frances the GOAT!!!!

  3. $100 says he still doesn’t actually do anything about the rampant sexual abuse and child rape in the catholic church
