Pope endorses same-sex civil unions in new documentary film

ROME (AP) — Pope Francis endorsed same-sex civil unions for the first time as pope while being interviewed for the feature-length documentary “Francesco,” which had its premiere at the Rome Film Festival on Wednesday.The papal thumbs up came midway through the film that delves into issues Francis cares about most, including the environment, poverty, migration, racial and income inequality, and the people most affected by discrimination.

“Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God,” Francis said in one of his sit-down interviews for the film. “What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered.”ADVERTISEMENTWhile serving as archbishop of Buenos Aires, Francis endorsed civil unions for gay couples as an alternative to same-sex marriages. However, he had never come out publicly in favor of civil unions as pope.

One of the main characters in the documentary is Juan Carlos Cruz, the Chilean survivor of clergy sexual abuse whom Francis initially discredited during a 2018 visit to Chile.Cruz, who is gay, said that during his first meetings with the pope in May 2018, Francis assured him that God made Cruz gay. Cruz tells his own story in snippets throughout the film, chronicling both Francis’ evolution on understanding sexual abuse as well as to document the pope’s views on gay people.

Director Evgeny Afineevsky had remarkable access to cardinals, the Vatican television archives and the pope himself. He said he negotiated his way in through persistence, and deliveries of Argentine mate tea and Alfajores cookies that he got to the pope via some well-connected Argentines in Rome.

“Listen, when you are in the Vatican, the only way to achieve something is to break the rule and then to say, ‘I’m sorry,’” Afineevsky said in an interview ahead of the premiere.The director worked official and unofficial channels starting in early 2018, and ended up so close to Francis by the end of the project that he showed the pope the movie on his iPad in August. The two recently exchanged Yom Kippur greetings; Afineevsky is a Russian-born Jew who lives in Los Angeles.

But “Francesco” is more than a biopic about the pope.Wim Wenders did that in the 2018 film “Pope Francis: A Man of His Word,” which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. “Francesco,” is more a visual survey of the world’s crises and tragedies, with audio from the pope providing possible ways to solve them.

Afineevsky traveled the world to film it: the settings include Cox’s Bazaar in Bangladesh where Myanmar’s Rohingya sought refuge; the U.S.-Mexico border and Francis’ native Argentina.“The film tells the story of the pope by reversing the cameras,” said Vatican communications director Paolo Ruffini, who was one of Afineevsky’s closest Vatican-based collaborators on the film.

Ruffini said that when Afineevsky first approached him with the idea of a documentary, he tried to tamp down his hopes for interviewing the pope.“I told him it wasn’t going to be easy,” he said.But Ruffini gave him some advice: names of people who had been impacted by the pope, even after just a brief meeting. Afineevsky found them: the refugees Francis met with on some of his foreign trips, prisoners he blessed, and some of the gays to whom he has ministered.

“I told him that many of those encounters had certainly been filmed by the Vatican cameras, and that there he would find a veritable gold mine of stories that told a story,” Ruffini said. “He would be able to tell story of the pope through the eyes of all and not just his own.”

salemguy14 That won't be why hes going bye bye !🤮🤮 free_equal ExpressFridayVigil 여러분이 이 방송을 봐주시기를 원합니다. Click on one of the links below to see more. It is broadcasting live. OutnumberedFNC The Catholic church no longer follows the Bible. We are to love everyone but not excuse the morals. They are plainly in the Bible.

What about the Bible? the pope is a dyke supporter yeahhhh blakeyblogs Bet most of you ‘people of God’ are sinners & pick & choose what to love follow judge or hate from the bible. Let’s start with anyone who has had a child outside of marriage cannot marry either. Wondering if he is affirming homosexuality as Christian (Is the Pope a Catholic is not an automatic yes) or is he wanting the church to take marriage back (1 man & 1 woman) while working to ensure the ability of non-church folks to maintain legal rights given to married people?

thedecider99 Anti-Prophet of Revelations Bible, he is a HOMO himself and has disgraced the Papacy ! He forced Pope Benedict out he is a NEW WORLD ORDER COMMUNIST PUPPET ! It's fake news I don't understand the fake drama with this. He said civil not sacramental. I understand his words as an empathetic statement of social equality & justice. It's not like he's arbitrarily changed church or cannon law. He only stated his feelings & opinions.

👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 Homosexual will open the portals to pedofilia. No wonder they started endorsing civil union. Before anyone petition for choir boys fundme let's say Hallelujah PattyArquette Religion is one of the most repulsive things on this planet. The Pope will have a judgement day just like we will.

The world is coming to an end..... true fact! These are the signs as predicted in the book of revelations... it’s only of matter of time.....he is not a born again Christian I remember him being voted in or the Vatican smoke coming out white. CaroleRadziwill I. Love. Him. ❤️❤️😍😍 And then God said: 'Let the self-righteous right wingers chime in, completely clueless to how much like the Pharisees they sound like'

shift_in2_turbo A little late! Everyone that wants to marry should be able to do so. All these people judging homosexuality as sinful and an abomination when they've all had sex before marriage. 🙄 Homosexuality is a SIN! This is where progressivism is pushing past the bulwark of faith and intelligence given to Catholics in the teachings of the Church. As a Catholic who knows his faith and has experienced the friendship of God, this action at best promotes the pope himself and not the faith.

All this Right Wing so called Christians have sons and daughters who are Gay or lesbian, so, shut up or put up! Once you know and read your Bible, you will know that the word of God told us that we shall not be deceived by what any man tries to tell us. I know that we are all creations of God, but to be called a child of God you need salvation, love what God loves and hate what he hates.

The big deception! The Papacy again in extreme left stand Lol One small step for man, one giant step for Catholicism. Keep on stepping Francis. You've still got a bit further to go. AlbertoAmmann It was finally time 👍😄😘 And ˹remember˺ when Lot scolded ˹the men of˺ his people, ˹saying,˺ “Do you commit a shameful deed that no man has ever done before?

How can the pope equate this to the Bible which states a man can not lie with another man ? An about turn from their religion. I’ll leave you to your own decisions. Religion changing with social circumstances if the day. Gen gen his serve From what I read in article, there nothing that shows he endorses it. He said they have a right to belong to a Family and that they are Children of God. Nothing there about same sex marriage

Cuck Seems like people in comments are afraid that THEY need now to do a same sex marriage, chill down guys, if you're not the grom or bride you has nothing to be afraid about, the salvation is an individual thing right? MaraDosen What a time to be alive John 1:12. Pope, you need to read the Holy Bible. See the qualifications of Child of God from being a creation of God.

wasted pope. wasted Bible. end is near 😭 I am so sad for Catholics. This has gone on for too long. Whether we like it or not, no one can change God's law. It's quite clear the pope, an imperfect man, does NOT read the bible in full. It clearly states throughout the bible God condemns homosexuality. Simple. God loves all but hates certain behaviour.

B-b-but what lie will the 'Religious Freedom' bigots hide behind now? 🤔 You do not need another human being approval to what made you happy or marry someone who is different from what they believed is wrong. Well he certainly is making statements that go against the Bible and the Catholic religion. He stands by most but changes these, simply because he feels like it.

osamjo I love the way you wrote that tweet. The age of gods truly is behind us! Emmabarnett Heart warming news at last. What's dividing American citizens isn't politics...it's religion. Religious 'rules' have no place in a intelligent, civilized society. 🤔 Love is love ❤️ What's in God's name is this crap

AdamMaina_ still doesn’t make it right before God’s eyes AdamMaina_ Its wrong from the Pope Priest marriages also - want young people to go to church make them welcome! Signs of the end time Rams_Gfele Read your Bible Pontifex pornography was issued by Satanists and their soldiers That is why homosexuality, child rape and sexual harassment by priests spread, covering their scandals religiously and against the will of God, and this decision will bring severe divine punishment on everyone because in the original marriage between a male and a female, and

Abomination. Those are not children of GOD.. Homosexuality is a sin. Would Jesus (your role model) have endorsed that if HE was the one interviewed? And has he forgotten about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by God Himself? These are what keep on encouraging all these acts even in the Christian faith.

EndAnglophoneCrisis ✊🏿 Lmao! Religious people are shaking😆🤣 Do Catholics have a Christian Bible...the Bible states a man should not lay down with another man.. That's false. He said everyone has a right to be part of a family. I don't see where you read that he endorsed same-sex civil unions This is a terrific development for the LGBTQ community. It's long overdue. Now, what does AC Barrett think? If women decide to follow her lead in sabotaging their own reproductive rights, then that's their business. But she should leave the LGBTQ alone to live their lives.

Times are changing and he is the most considerate Pope ever.🙏.God keep him safe and to live for more a thousand year♥️✨ Pope dont preach 🤣 🤣 🤣 Lmaooooo Do Catholics read the holy bible at all Or they have a different bible Satanic Entity Yeah fuck, the end is near Misleading headlines. Catholic is still the same then and now. Marriage is between man & woman. Lgbt will Never get sacrament of holy matrimony from Catholic church. Don't fool yourself. Devil is persevering in twisting human minds. CatholicChurch PopeFrancis Pontifex

Convenient this is coming out around the time a substantial corruption scandal is being discovered... The lambs were leaving ,we had to do something! Who segregated us in first place 🤔 Lol Pope is gay travistpez Roman disaster Christianity is a fashionable religion. It moves with the times. When God doesn't change, his Christian leaders do. It's a joke.

👏👏👏 BUT NOT MARRIAGE Smh We're all equal in God's eyes, this is fantastic news. BethRigby He really is the anti christ Somehow this isn’t even surprising 😒 🙌 👍🙏 Such a hopeful statement from the Catholic church 😊 Blaise_21 Ok but now address the pedophilia How are those universal unshakeable truths going for you, Religion?

Can’t wait to see it. You're end time pope. Anti Christ pope, evil and devilish pope. Homosexuals are NOT children of God and neither is the unholy father! somebody make a fancam of the pope, pronto Pope goes woke. Will the Vatican go broke? Or will gays keep the church afloat. Will the priests have to sell coke? Transport big shipments by boat. That shit would be dope! Then hit the ski slope. Is Biden gonna win, Nope!

The crack in the armour'ing is well advanced Now he could add that women should have agency over our bodies. We are told to follow Jesus. Was he fucked in the ass? Love this Pope! Is this the second coming? Peopleafteru Long live Pope Francis 🙏 AnaLuciaGS18 I can't banish the thoughts that Benedict 16th actually resigned instead of signing that rubbish. Francis you're a disgrace.

Ooh baby steps. Good for you. Pick up the pace. It's time catholic church. Gender equality and no more abuse - against children, women, the vulnerable. All humans are equal. Stop the malignant, patriarchal structure that is the catholic church. Get right with God. Waiting. Now he needs to rid the catholic church of all abuse. Save the children. Waiting.

God's been praying for this to happen. Now everyone can stop judging His children! No man has ever seen him face by himself, except he uses a reflection, these reflection is pure cruelty Don't be a jerk !! Pope in Catholic Church will never grant blessing in holy matrimony sacrament to Lgbt couple. If you want to do whatever you like choose other churches especially the protestants' Leave Catholic church alone. Catholic is good. CatholicChurch Catholics

Sad isn't it, how the leader of Catholicism is more progressive than the current SCOTUS pick. The most progressive Pope in history. News alert. Catholicism roars into the 18th century. I'm old enough to remember when popes had to be Catholics. Why will he do this, but not denounce pedophiles and rapist that litter his organization? Why won’t he turn these sick fucks into the police instead of hiding them? Why are pedophiles perfectly wonderful people, but gay couples are the devil’s rejects?

Amy Coney Barrett is anti- LGBTQ. Trump should release his Chinese tax return David Corn MSNBC Insider threat for real! “Civil union” is not MARRIAGE, but most people don’t know that. So they think he okayed same sex marriage. He can’t. Civil union deals with the state not Church law/God’s law. next: marriage for priest (special derogation means there are some married catholic priests already). Then, women priests. Where will Ann Widdecombe go?

Horrible!! What a Pope! Same sex marriage goes against nature, and the pope do! Can’t wait to hear how the evangelicals and right wing “Christians” (like ACB) who are actively trying to destroy LGBTQ rights react when The POPE is down with equality. Hard to be the “religious right” while standing against Pontifex

The worst pope ever 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Evil man Now what will handmade Barrett do? The pope should also allowe mutiple spouse marriage and preteens marriage as long as there's no signs of force marriage. DOUBLE STANDADARD POPE. We could talk about how homosexuality wasn’t actually addressed in the bible until changing translations and certain gatekeepers arrived, but yall not ready for that 😪

kfdmnews Pope Needs To Read His Bible! Just Shows how Corrupt this Religion Is! Okay, now let's see some important imam do the same for islam! Says the man wearing a dress Listen to the old guy in the white hat tell you about the sky fairies. Chinoble88 Whaaaat?! So the translation is the Bible is wrong Please make it make sense!

Madame na namang banal aso santong kabayo ang mgwawala jan,madame nanaman silang masesay Ummm..... this is... ummm.... speechless Somebody tell Amy whatshername.... that will go.over well!! I’m an ex catholic but boy ai like this guy. He Tangos too. I have the biggest soul crush on Pope Frances🤟 tobinsheat lohanthony how you feelin ab this

VP can come out now! Your religion days is okay, you go gurl! Romans 1:27 Mighty big of him DemocracyNotTheocracy I'll be impressed if he comes out and says that he supports gay *marriage* Civil union is separate but equal. Not impressed! This pope is a dope !!! Yes but in Texas they are not entitled to social workers. Crazy, isn't it?

Imagine... A religion of tolerance, acceptance, and inclusivity. Fuck him. I don’t want to civil union my partner. I want to be married like everyone else. He’s a Jesuit Pope. That is all. Wonder what Amy Coney Barrett has to say about that...good Catholic girl that she is? She was on the Board of a school that refused to let the 'children' of gay parents attend. She believes children should be punished for, what she believes, are the sins of their parents.

It's not perfect, but remember a lot of the most violently homophobic countries are catholic. Having the Pope come out and support queer people his a HUGE step. Love is love 👏 Or a supremacy court justice. Love Pope Francis. ❤❤❤ roccopalmo Call me when he condemns priests who rape children and a church that covers it up.

this is a really interesting thing to hear. youd think it's good that he wants to be progressive and inclusive but also, i just read about him helping cover up SA of disabled children.... Hell do froze over! To my Catholic Brethren. Wake up and listen to PAPA. He is the leader of the church. We are all God’s children. We need to respect and support all our Brothers and Sisters. Civil Union is an encompassing embrace of compassion and inclusion.

A true Christian...and hero. Waktu dan keyboard, kami persilakan. DEUSHariara Wins for the gays, wins for the love.. 👏👏👏 How about the people of sodom & gomorah? This is going to confuse a lot of Republicans. Religion is for apes What a shame. He cannot even stick to the core beliefs of Christianity. Surprising and pleasantly so.

Yeah but he also went back on mask-wearing so there's that Very forward thinking. I hate organized religion just a smidge less today. The Catholic Church has lost its way a long time ago. Nobody looks to it for leadership anymore, instead the Pope looks to the world around him for queues on what he should say next to placate the masses. Only a Fundementalist can save it now by calling a new Crusade. Deus Vult.

Nice to see a religion step up to treat everyone equal. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 people getting heated about this as if they don't know that the bible condemned pedophilia until the 20th century, not homosexuality. it wasn't until a newer English translation that the phrase was purposefully changed to be homosexuality

Religious Republicans in America What are homophobes going to blame their homophobia on now Wow! About about Gomorrah and Luth story in the bible? He endorsed it? I love this man. May God protect him and keep him. I pray he will remain our leader of faith. God love him. I’m shocked at all the negative responses. I think it’s a great start! Hopefully, the US priests who moved pedofiles around will not find this too inappropriate 😳

HO. LY. SHIT... never thought I'd live to see the day That ain't the Pope! ...it ain't even a cuckolded pope... ... its a full-fat Jesuit Anti-Pope! The Anti-Pope for the Anti-Christian Christian! Can we talk about how FoxNews turned off comments for this on their youtube? What do they know about their base?

Well, good news, Amy Barrett has no choice but to follow church doctrine. Haha. No longer a practicing Catholic. But this makes my heart happy! :/ Yamiche I LOVE Pope Francis. He is the perfect example of a true Christian. JesusisSmiling False Prophet. GOP You have been given your marching orders By the pope which apparently means by God herself. So I guess we will see you becoming more tolerant immediately and less bigoted?

Has the Pope ever read the Bible? I think not. If he has then he does not believe what God says but God in in charge, not the Pope. Atheists got a lot to say about this because they can’t mind their own business YA SE DESTAPO EL ANTICRISTO, la lucha entre lucifer y Jesucristo, Ya está cerca. Why aren't Catholics protesting this anti-christian advocacy?

Then why can’t priests get married? All churches shud love everybody not judge ppl y call urself a word of God n against some ppl suppose to be loving n forgiven not against ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 Be good without god ❤️❤️❤️❤️love is love samstein 👎 sandra_gundu For real? CJLeBlanc He is not a pope he’s a plant by the left.😡😡

Abdullkowaileet Looks like someone took him out of context. What the pope & the Catholic Church thinks should be irrelevant when there is far more important issues going on right now. The Plandemic for one people. God is the one. Does not have children or parents. Eternal, and infinite. Allah-u Ehad. Ehadun Ehad...

This is the Vicar of Christ? No, he never was. He's definitely NOT infallible and is undermining his own false authority. Sola Scriptura. Scripture alone is our standard for faith and practice. They really were frosty about Gallileo for an absurdly long time. 💀2020 is just not the year Where is the documentary?

The END is coming iankar_ Separate but equal, huh? Up with the times, this guy. Learn the context of your bible! No words about homosexuality. Love is Love. It's all about money and fake If he has in fact done so, he has spiritually vacated his position as Pope - Romans 1 - I Cor 6 -Galatians 5 on & on - many specific detailed scriptures which state this practiced behavior will even prevent one from entering Heaven

Imagine living in the year 2020 and still believing there's an invisible man living in the sky.... Exactly why Islam is the the most loyal religion, we don’t waffle around 😂 cry about it homophobes Well, it’s about time. Took them that long to realize that they’re all people with feelings too. Progress 2020 is filled with lots of shits

Pagan time Sure the pope will endorse adult / minor unions soon wonder how that will go down They sewing the seed So he will rewrite the Bible too? The Bible is what we base our faith in... Not disappointed, not surprised. It's 2020 after all I wonder what Jesus would have said about that 🧐 “Separate but equal” for $1000 Alex MarriageEquality SeparateisNeverEqual

This is gay STAN LIST ✨ dounardbondo He did it in Argentina and with all of that, the CatholicChurch made him pope! Shame/abomination on you the CatholicChurch 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Anti-Christ keep revealing yourself his priests have been molesting boys for years so he should be recognizing that people are attracted to the same sex, just need to sort out ideas of consent and age now, then get contraception & abortion accepted & he might achieve a modicum of relevance in 2020!

And now 265 previous popes are spinning in their graves. And poor Satan has to free all the souls who were condemned for being gay. Looks like God screwed the pooch on that one. Pope endorses gays and says trump isn’t Christian. Bad day to be a Bible thumping hypocrite. VoteBlueToEndThisNightmare Leader of the shaytan army.

Best.Pope.Ever. This is REAL Christianity! Yes they do!! YAAAAASSSS! (About damn time!) dounardbondo There you have it all you right wing crazies..the Pope himself said it so get on board. Stop the hate. GayMarriage gop religion I think he's right, gay people are children of God and deserve families, but in abrahamic religions isn't it still a sin and by him not acknowledging that doesn't the blood fall on his hands if they never discover that?

GOP TheDemocrats Now can we please separate church from state and enact a 'Model Domestic Partnership Act' allowing domestic partnerships between two or more consenting adults throughout the United States and leave marriage to the churches? I thought we were ALL MADE IN HIS IMAGE...🤔 janiebanks 🖐 waaka

Completely not Biblical. I pray that the Catholic believer steps out and runs. Satan has gotten hold of the Pope. MichaelaMcGrady 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 Pathryn34 Well, finally that has arrived at the church. That took long enough. Usa4lgbt Joe Biden marrying two gay White House staffers at his house while he was vice president.

I had to do it and also accept it to hide all the cases of pedophilia and homosexuality that exist in the Vatican and the Catholic Church. Because it is legal doesn't make it godly! Pedophilia will be next on the agenda. The pope when he realizes gay people also have money the homophobia in the replies 🤢

mloodic Is this that make u to be a real Christian? Hell yeah He seems very Jesus-like: forgiving, loving, compassionate, ... Maybe God finally decided to make someone in his own image. And Jesus didn’t write the Bible nor did he establish a religion. Christianity is still a great! Matthew 6:5, 6:6 Notice: CIVIL UNIONS, not marriages. The state controls and regulates contracts, churches perform the sacrament of marriage. Albeit they’re essentially the same, they are entirely different. Pontifex CatholicNewsSvc USCCB

Yo prattprattpratt seen this? Asking for some friends. That might upset the apple cart 👀 The Pope is endorsing civil unions, not marriage. Marriage is ontologically impossible for two men or for two women, since they cannot have sexual intercourse as God intended, with the possibility of procreation. Anal intercourse is forbidden in the Bible . Romans 1 v 26-7

1 Corinthians 6:9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality pope really want to endorses pedophilia 'Pope' says trump is not a Christian

Conservative Catholics are probably losing their minds. As a practicing Catholic I say Well done Pope Francis! He's not legally pope! Pontifex PopularPope POPE BENEDICT IS STILL ALIVE.

Love Pope Francis. He is truly about love & inclusion. And that’s the end of his authority in the Catholic church. This 👏 is 👏 not 👏 news! Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ESV

He has no choice. The choir boys are very popular. I love this Pope and his pastoral ministry. Catholic means universal and inclusive. Keep your faith close to the ground and choose love over dogma . Yamiche In 2010 in Buenos Aires, this man held pray-ins against gay marriage while Argentina became one of the world's first countries to legislate gay marriage into law. If the pope can change, anyone can change. Meanwhile in the US, gays could lose this right not by law but by Court.

He's a Jewish impostor, he is not a Christian. He has proven this so many times already. (Sits back with a bag of popcorn to watch Catholics (the homophobic ones) lose their minds) The Bible hasn’t changed sooooooooo koolkaryn Oh look religious progress. How divine! No, really good stuff. 👏👏👏👏👏❤️ proud to be a Catholic today!!

stay wild frank YAAAAASSSSSS If official then. Catholics are NOT Christians. They have abandoned the bible. I was a protestant who accepted Catholics as Christian. No more. Liberalism people Twitter I have opened the article about 6 times now and it still won't let me retweet it 😡 What the actual fuck is wrong with this man? I want a new pope.

Sounds about right for him. Why would we expect anything else? Damn Jesuits And now the homophobes can’t technically play the religion card. Unquestionably the best and most positively consequential Pope in modern history. This evil Man has destroyed Catholic Church. He better be removed immediately. What a savage.

What's wrong with this old man ? He’s an idiot. What does he make of Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13? People say the Pope is destroying the Catholic Church... let me just tell you that the Catholic Church use to execute people who were left handed.... there’s not a lot of brain power in that church so I’m fine with the Pope changing things.

He’s about 25 years too late 🙄 This is freaking awesome🌈🌈🌈 Now if only he recognized women as equal to men. .....And the Bible says: Mat 19:4 - “Haven’t you read the Scriptures? Jesus replied. ’They record that from the beginning ‘God made them male AND female.’ He said, ‘This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.’

Usurper. A ((( fake pope ))) silkyhank Better, but not enough. If homosexuals are children of God in equal measure as heterosexuals, surely they should be allowed to have their love blessed by God. Did I get that right? Unless they're only charity cases, still 'other'. Thoughts? JamesMartinSJ camanpour

Sell out It took a long while but at least we're getting there 👏 Wonder what Amy thinks GOP heads are going to explode or they will say “we never liked the pope anyway” The world Crazyst pope ever!! What a shame 😒 What next in 2020 🙄 Religion needs to stay out of politics! Politics need to stay out of religion! How many more ways does this need to be stated! 🙄🙄🙄🙄

To all you evangelicals..... your discriminatory rhetoric should stop! The Pope is absolutely correct and his words are with love and compassion. Stay out of politics and focus on true faith! This pope was not elected but put in place by a congregation of corrupt homosexual Cardinals that have slowly become a big political force in the Vatican displacing those cardinals who are faithful to the dogma and doctrine of the Catholic Church. I is a disgraceful reality

Mr. Pope, do read your bible, not the man made catholic bible. You are an abomination of our Lord and Savior. Why do you the he created man and women, to have families with children, the greatest gift He has given man and women. I pray for your soul. It's in the bible, read it!! Is there room for another break off branch of Catholicism?

I would like to hear kanyewest opinion on this. Good Man of True enlightenment in the Spirit of the Christ : ALL HUMANS AND LIVING CREATURES ARE GOD'S CREATION AND HIS FAMILY OF LIFE! ( Weather You endorse this as fact or can understand the theoretical aspect .) MaritsaNBCMT Now about that lie concerning marriages is a church thing.

Pope Francis is such a good man. adapting christianity to modern standards and morals. hope future popes will be just as kind TalentEvaluator cafejennay ChloeWannamaker Yamiche He strategically announces this while US citizens can’t travel into the EU. Considering some of the comments below I understand.

Crazy the Pope accepts it but the Republican Party doesn’t. ForzaCorrado thoughts ? 💞 Ratings must be down. Money drying up cc nakedpastor ✌🙏 A pope that sees everyone the same as it should be in the eyes of 'God' is getting backlash from Fake religious people that are stuck in the century the letters in the Bible were written, by their logic women shouldn't have any rights either. Can't pick and chose.

Is this the view of the church now? It seems like it's the pope's personal view. I really respect this Pontifex as he continues to preach about love and equality. Praise the Pope! samstein Biggest surprise of the day. Happy shall he be, that taketh and crush thy little ones against the stones.' (Psalm 137:9)

Maybe Francis have a closet buddy! 😉 Everyone talks about Mary Magdalene was Jesus’s wife but what if Mary Magdalene was actually Jesus’s beard? Think about it? And not church weddings. Which is what he actually has jurisdiction over. Only if you keep his commandments..... Finally!! Anon_Lobo Right wing catholics are losing their minds right about now.

Hopefully he will realize that population control is necessary at 7.5 billion people and change stance on family planning another win for Orthobros.. The Pope is trending 1 for this? I'm Catholic and haven't been a regular church goer since I was a kid. It's embarrassing. He's coming out for civil unions. Is it 1999? Dear Pope: it's never a good look when Catholics trend. Think of 2001 and have a espresso.

Love this Pope! Give me a humanist every day of the week! No. They are lost souls. Marriage is between a man and a woman. Waw, esto si se salió de cualquier estándar que existiera en la iglesia... Lo aplaudo. 👏👏👏 Catholics priests after the Pope's speech be looking at the alter boys like.... okay tolerant king let’s get it

edcafasso There you go. It's done. Fantastic year's we have ahead of us with this globalist puppet ... Don't forget Trans marriage now and Drag kids too. Pope must have lost his Bible, or doesn't read it. Or he's made a gross misinterpretation. If your faith hasn't changed you, it hasn't saved you. Read I John. Then take a look at John 1:10-13. NOT everyone is a child of God. Living in open, unrepentant sin is enmity with God.

MaryRWilliams4 As a cis ally, I say: Not good enough. Marriage has better legal protections for both partners. Civil unions are not a good compromise. He was always so wholesome, I knew he had to be a truly good person. Catholics mad Oh my god I support gays but fuck stop shoving it down our fucking throats

FREE BILL COSBY!! STOP TREATING BLACK PEOPLE DIFFERENTLY! IF YOU LET THOSE WHITE MEN THAT DID THE SAME INCIDENT AS COSBY GO FREE YOU LET COSBY GO FREE!!! Catholics welcome to the 21th century ❤️ This is not ‘breaking news’: Same-sex couples in many countries are already enjoying legal civil unions. What would be something, is if same-couples were allowed to celebrate their legal union in a Catholic Church. Hey Pontifex: Now tell us women can be ordained as equals! 🙌🏻🙏🏻

LEMME PRAY CHILE King of pope 🥺💖 Lemme burn all my atheist books real quick and schedule my baptism Pontifex I really don't get what makes them a family if natural procreation will be absent. Truly Christianity is a personal thing and personally I reject this teaching I wouldn't listen to the bible anyway it also says the Earth was created 6000 years ago and talks about unicorns 😂

I’m not a child of God. I’m a child of my mother and father. There is no God and I don’t need the Pope to say anything about what I can or can’t do. Amy’s going to be pissed. samstein Well it only took 2020 years... This is going to send some shockwaves :) Dude is too much into politics. JennyDreaslerTV And people critique me for not believing in a fake god ......

They should put them all on a lsland miles from anywhere so they can do with each other what they like. Then that can be there family. And maybe the Pope could visit once a month. 201 apoupartFins Pope's words torn out of context and for their own convenience. Don't believe everything you read. Tell Webster to correct the Bible

This is what the conservative position should be at least in America. Civil union is a contract between two adults. Nothing to do with religion. Government should not intrude on this contract. Doesn't appear to be an endorsement of gay marriage, sex, or child adoption...not particularly newsworthy Meanwhile in Islamic news: 'Should we keep beheading people for insulting Muhammad?'

Political pope When he came to Philly several years back, he inspired us. He went to prisons, washed the feet of prisoners; reached out to children. Rode all over the city. Said a beautiful Mass on the Parkway. Is adamant about climate change. I love Il Papa! Not the Vicar of Christ. This fuckin guy. OFC_TTTwiterFam

Catholicism takes another L. God never changes Oh, dear. He better get a taster! city_rabin He literally says here that same-sex marriage should be covered in civil law... He's not saying that the church should allow them to. Click bait at its finest guess the pope isn't worrying what the bible says anymore. He seems to just do what he wants and not what God wants. God loves all people and we are all created in his image however the Bible does talk against this type of lifestyle. Don't say you have to agree, its just a fact

Smh...... God changed his mind? The pope is right we are all his creation therefore we are all his children. None are excluded from God’s love and mercy. If you know the truth and choose not to do it, it is sin to you. The devil will use the shame of the sin against you to keep you from God Jesus is coming back, will you be “Left Behind” is the only thing we should be asking. All sin is forgivable 1~acknowledge it. ~Turn from ~🩸of Christ washes away all sin. Lying/Stealing/Murder/Gossip. Pope is (an) Antichrist, but not the one who is to come.

That’ll swell the collection plates. joncoopertweets So Alito and Thomas can fuck right off. Got it. Its ok cuz God will not be mocked. You'll see. The UndergroundChurch is real. GodWins For those opposed to this and quoting scripture, the Bible also states that those who work on the sabbath should be stoned. How is moving away from that decree any different? Simply looking for insight as I am Jewish. This is a wonderful move by Pope Francis

Can he give Serena Joy Barrett a call pls? lmao not people mad about this. didn’t your god say not to judge others because we are all sinners so no one but him has the right. stop using religion as the justification to your homophobia. not everyone believes in such things. We gotta give a huge shout out to the Pope for taking a step in the right direction. Everyone has a right to be in a family. Everyone.

The collapse of the catholic church has begin. PERIOD So now we’re just picking and choosing what to follow in the Bible? Have some integrity for fuck’s sake! PS I’m not a Christian and support gay rights. MaketoLari corintios 6, 9-11 That popping sound you’ll be hearing all day is the heads exploding of American Catholic Church members.

djrothkopf Cue the Vatican walking back these comments, like they’ve done every other time. Did jesus slap him in the face with his dick. Marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman, period, that's the teaching of the Church regardless of what this man says in an interview. It's a shame we've went from St. Pope John Paul II to this clown.

What about pedophiles? incest? beastiality? Aren’t they all children of God too? I’VE BEEN A FAN OF HIS FOR SO LONG. Way to lead the way, Pope Francis! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Jesus wept. I’ve always said we no longer need a Pope, but this dude is pretty darn cool. For a pope. Lol. Has God changed?What happen to our Non-Negotiable values: Sanctity of life, Sanctity of Marriage ( a union between a man and a woman)?. educazion kessenaO vanessavallej0

He is supporting civil unions. This does not deviate from Catholic doctrine. kelle177 this is huge To the utmost, which in these turbulent times must be recognized as a master move! Or an act of despair? Can it be backdated? “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

Catholicism is a joke. We’re totally cool with homosexuality now even though we have condemned it for centuries causing people to hate LGBT+ based on “faith” But we’re totally cool with closeted homosexual priests raping young boys trey_forde OMG WE WON He doing it VinicioSenador ,pelegrinc This one time.... at bibble camp...

Jesus: This really represents a challenge for Roman Catholic folks. cc: DrOakley1689 Angelus619 He’s this progressive with LGBT (and good) but still holds such backwards views about childfree people. Blimey MichellesDude Baby steps! Follow God, not pedo protectors. By their fruits we shall know them. The popes words confirms the biblical credence of the endtime spiritual leader who masks in the name of Christ

BethRigby This has been coming for some time, if they do not accept equality they will be left in civilisations dust. Although I'm not religious I am glad for those who are. 'Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind' 1 Corinthians 6:9 This is why you trust God over sinful man! 😔😔😔

Oh, Mother!!! Trolling trump and the GOP at Pope-level. Thank you thegoodgodabove 😅😂🤣❤️🏳️‍🌈 God: Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination UROCKlive1 FINALLY But The bible says Gays and Lesbians must be put to death !! How long does he have? The church has killed a few popes

Does this now mean that Christianity has officially endorsed homosexuality and lesbianism? 🤔🤔🤔 Pope Francis is becoming the host of all religions. He doesn't talk about Jesus, repentance or redemption. He is just holding hands and singing kumbaya. he is preparing the way to the antichrist. Civil unions are a legal thing (as opposed to marriage which is both legal and/or religious) so I’m not surprised by this, but I’m still glad to see the pope give me faith that the entire church isn’t an un-Christ like dumpster fire.

Watch the right simultaneously attack the Catholic Church AND attack the Catholic Democratic Presidential nominee as somehow being anti-Catholic. Only took until 20-fucking-20! 🙄 Eh? Fucking hell IMO .... all these re-hashed social arguments are being propped up as a distraction from the Hunter ... LAPTOP. news patterns allthetime

❤️😍❤️😍❤️🤗💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 Someone needs to reread the Bible !

Pope Francis calls for civil union laws for same-sex couplesBREAKING: Pope Francis calls for the passage of civil union laws for same-sex couples in a documentary that aired in Rome on Wednesday, marking a major departure from the position held by the Vatican’s doctrinal office.

Pope wears mask for first time at public event Pope Francis wore a mask for the first time at a public function on Tuesday when he and other religious leaders attended a prayer service for peace around the world. 회개와_거룩함 주님의_길을_예비하라 메시아께서_오신다 요1:16 만물이 그에게서 창조되되 하늘과 땅에서 보이는 것들과 보이지 않는 것들과 혹은 왕권들이나 주권들이나 통치자들이나 권세들이나 만물이 다 그로 말미암고 그를 위하여 창조되었고 A Men Imagine Jesus meeting with and praying with 'leaders' of other religions... He would not do so. Why not? They all pray too different gods. But then the god the pope prays to is not the true god of the Bible. That makes those prayers all silent, save for to the masses. FACTS!
