How to read Pope Francis' message of love for LGBTQ people

Pope and Patriarch pray for peace in Rome

He also notes that if same-sex couples "are given adoption rights, there could be affected children". At 83 and with part of a lung removed when he was in his 20s due to illness, the pope would be at high-risk for COVID-19 complications.

He said the pope's words should be clear. "They are children of God", Pope Francis said in an interview in the film.

Former interior minister Matteo Salvini, leader of rightist League party, has been a vocal opponent of homosexual rights, denying the children of same-sex unions to have the name of both parents on national ID cards.

Pope Francis previously made similar statements as Archbishop of Buenos Aires when favored of civil unions as an alternative to same-sex marriages, which the Catholic Church opposes.

Pope Francis is creating buzz across the world Wednesday after a documentary about his life debuted in Rome. "I stood up for that", he said.

There are some people who support the Pope's decision and others who aren't too sure.

The documentary, by filmmaker Evgeny Afineevsky, tackles numerous issues championed by Pope Francis, such as climate change, income inequality, interfaith relations and migrant rights.

Alphonso David, president of the Human Rights Campaign, an LGBTQ advocacy group, praised Francis for his comments and issued a similar call for broader acceptance.

This capability was rolled out widely on the Android platform last month, and is now finally making its way to the iOS platform. The app brings a new feature called "Remote Play" that allows users to play their Xbox games on iOS devices.

The statement has people further discussing homosexuality within the Catholic Church not only in Rome, but right here in Omaha.

Numerous figures close to this pontificate are interviewed in the documentary, including his predecessor Benedict XVI, family members and papal allies such as Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, who heads the Vatican department for evangelization, and Monsignor Charles Scicluna, adjunct secretary for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

Francis shunned a face mask again during his Wednesday general audience in the Vatican auditorium, and didn't wear one when he greeted a half-dozen mask-less bishops at the end.

"I told him that many of those encounters had certainly been filmed by the Vatican cameras and that there he would find a veritable gold mine of stories that told a story", Mr Ruffini said.

"There might be a lot of variation in that and that's why proponent of same sex marriage want to see marriage with full rights granted they criticize any sort of distinction as essentially being separate but equal and making the second-class citizens", he said. He is a survivor of clergy sexual abuse whom Francis at first discredited during a 2018 visit to Chile.

According to "The Great Reformer", a biography of Pope Francis by Austen Ivereigh, then-Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio went head-to-head with the government in 2010 when it began a drive to legalize gay marriage. So, let's call them "civil unions'".

After becoming pope in 2013, Francis took an unprecedented welcoming tone towards homosexuals, launching his famous phrase, "Who am I to judge?" and welcoming gay couples to the Vatican on several occasions. "However, the legalization of their civil unions, which seek to simulate holy matrimony, is not admissible".

In 2007, New Jersey became the third state in the U.S.to allow same-sex civil unions. Such an arrangement, Anderson said, would leave churches the option of refusing to recognize these unions as marriage.
