Erm.... Jesus is a little "dark in skin pigment" to be acceptable in Republican communities...

Pope Francis calls for civil union laws for same-sex couples

By Chico Harlan and Michelle Boorstein
Oct. 21, 2020

ROME — In a new documentary, Pope Francis has called for the creation of civil union laws for same-sex couples, in remarks that break from the Catholic Church’s official teaching and mark his clearest support to date for the issue.

In the documentary, according to the Catholic News Agency, Francis says same-sex couples should be “legally covered.”
“What we have to create is a civil union law,” he said.

Francis has long expressed an interest in outreach to the church’s LGBT followers, but his remarks have often stressed general understanding and welcoming — rather than substantive policies.

Priests in some parts of the world bless same-sex marriage, but that stance — and Francis’s new remarks — are a departure from official church teaching.

The documentary, “Francesco,” is premiering this week in Rome and later in the United States. The pope gave an interview to the filmmaker, Evgeny Afineevsky, saying that “homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family.”

“They’re children of God and have a right to a family,” the pope said. “Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it.”

Well, that's a big step forward, but it's still just support for "civil unions," not a true "marriage."

Maybe the Catholic Church will eventually follow the Episcopal Church's lead and allow ALL "children of God" to marry in the church.

One can only hope.

I'm guessing it's a matter of one step at a time.

I hope so, Susie. I celebrate steps forward, even when they're long overdue and not complete.

I celebrate steps forward, too, Lis. It just sometimes feels as if we take two steps forward and then one step back
