Pope Francis: Homos.e.xuals have a right to be a part of the family, they’re children of God. In a shift, Pope Francis has voiced his support for same-sex civil unions in a documentary that debuted in Rome today, October 21, 2020.
“Homos.e.xual people have a right to be in a family,” Pope Francis said in the documentary. “They are children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or made miserable over it.
“What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered.” He added that he “stood up for that”, apparently referring to his time as Archbishop of Buenos Aires when, although opposing same-s.e.x marriages in law, he supported some legal protections for same-s.e.x couples.
The film Francesco, about the life and work of Pope Francis, premiered as part of the Rome Film Festival. As well as the Pope’s comments on civil unions, the film also shows him encouraging two gay men to attend church with their three children. Pope Francis’s biographer, Austen Ivereigh, told the BBC he was “not surprised” by the latest comments.
“This was his position as Archbishop of Buenos Aires,” said Mr Ivereigh. “He was always opposed to marriage being for same-s.e.x couples. But he believed the church should advocate for a civil union law for gay couples to give them legal protection.”
