Pope Francis supports civil union laws for same-sex couples

Pope Francis, who has always been vocal about his support for same-sex union, told in a documentary titled Francesco by Evgeny Afineevsky that although he does not endorse same-sex marriage, he is supporting for homosexuals to be protected by civil union laws.

“Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They are children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable over it,” he said.

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

EN: The mission, the ‘Church on the move’, is not a programme to be carried out by sheer force of will. It is Christ who makes the Church go out of herself. In the mission of evangelization, you move because the Holy Spirit pushes you, and carries you. #WorldMissionDay PT: A missão, a “Igreja em saída”, não é um programa, um intuito concretizável por um esforço de vontade. É Cristo que faz sair a Igreja de si mesma. Na missão de anunciar o Evangelho, moves-te porque o Espírito te impele e conduz. #DiaMundialdasMissões ES: La misión, la “Iglesia en salida” no es un programa que se logra mediante un esfuerzo de voluntad. Es Cristo quien saca a la Iglesia de sí misma. En la misión de anunciar el Evangelio, te mueves porque el Espíritu te empuja y te lleva. #JornadaMisioneraMundial IT: La missione, la “Chiesa in uscita” non sono un programma da realizzare per sforzo di volontà. È Cristo che fa uscire la Chiesa da sé stessa. Nella missione di annunciare il Vangelo, tu ti muovi perché lo Spirito ti spinge e ti porta. #GiornataMissionariaMondiale FR: La mission, "l'Église en sortie", ne constituent pas un programme à réaliser. C'est le Christ qui fait sortir l'Église d'elle-même. Dans la mission d'annoncer l'Évangile, vous vous mettez en mouvement parce que l'Esprit Saint vous pousse et vous porte. #JournéeMissionnaireMondiale DE: Die Mission und „die Kirche im Aufbruch“ sind nicht ein Programm, das durch Willensanstrengung zu verwirklichen ist. Christus lässt die Kirche aufbrechen. Du bewegst dich in der Mission der Verkündigung des Evangeliums, weil der Geist dich antreibt und führt. #Weltmissionssonntag PL: Misja, «Kościół wychodzący» nie jest programem, który należy zrealizować wysiłkiem woli. To Chrystus sprawia, że Kościół wychodzi na zewnątrz. Podejmujesz misję głoszenia Ewangelii, ponieważ Duch cię pobudza i niesie. #ŚwiatowyDzieńMisyjny

A post shared by Pope Francis (@franciscus) on

The former archbishop of Buenos Aires always thought of the LGBT+ community as children of God and his ‘Who am I to judge?’ statement in 2013 has since become famous.

“If a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge? he said at the time.

The Catholic church believes homosexuality is not sinful but homosexual acts are. Pope Francis becomes the first pontiff to endorse same-sex civil union.
