Pope says same-sex couples should be covered by civil union laws


Recommended Posts

Well done Pope Francis for encouraging the church to join the 21st Century. 

The next step is to abolish celibacy for priests and nuns, which was only formalized in canon law in 1917.

Silly that anyone cares what this man has to say about anything. Who cares?

It’s a big deal because until now the church has been against it big time. A lot of religious people are holding the Bible against gays in quite a lot of countries. Especially in Asia and Latin America, but finally a pope came to his senses and so hopefully the religious discrimination against gays will come to an end in the near future!

About time the Catholic Church did something good. Just keep them away from kids.

 

Precisely.

Not a Catholic (thank god) so I don't really care but to me this is kind of like going from being banned from the bus to being allowed to the back of the bus and gay people are now expected to be like thank you so much Mr. Pope for acknowledging that we're human beings. 

 

Now I will don my trusty flak jacket.
