Pope Francis has said he is open to the possibility that the Catholic Church would allow blessings for same-sex unions.
The Vatican’s Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith released a letter that Francis wrote to five cardinals who urged him to reaffirm church teaching on homosexuality ahead of Synod on Synodality, a meeting during which LGBTQ Catholics, women in the church and other issues will be discussed.
He wrote “such same-sex blessings could be studied if they didn’t confuse the blessing with sacramental marriage.”
Pope Francis reiterated that homosexuality is not a crime and he publicly endorsed civil unions for same-sex couples, but Catholic church teachings on homosexuality and gender identity have not changed under Francis’ papacy.
We'll see how it ends...
There are LGBTQ Catholics, face it!
