Pope Francis is not giving up on same-sex marriage

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!
