Bishop Of Malta Says Pope Francis Is Shocked By Same-Sex Adoption

Written by 

Pope Francis


Since Pope Francis granted LGBT people the mercy, he became for certain a support of LGBT rights. But no, Pope Francis is still anti-LGBT.

These last months, I admit that I have been embarrassed to see LGBT people thanking Pope Francis for his support, his comprehension and I was completely shocked to see a LGBT magazine like The Advocate naming him person of the year and devoting the cover of the magazine to him with his photo while having added the 'NOH8' symbol on his cheek just because he said: "If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?"!!!

All started when Pope Francis granted to LGBT his mercy.

Opening of the dictionary. What means mercy? A person who has so much pity for another that he forgives her.

Then, I remind you that Pope Francis, before being Pope, was one of a the priest the most anti-LGBT and it is not his new position which suddenly changed him.

During a visit in Malta, which currently debates on a civil union bill which would allow same-sex couples to adopt, Pope Francis said he was shocked.

"The Pope was shocked by the Civil Unions Bill, which will allow gay couples to adopt children", Auxiliary Bishop Charles Scicluna has told The Sunday Times of Malta.

Scicluna also said that Pope Francis repeated his comments from 2010: same-sex marriage is "an anthropological regression" during a discussion that the two men had about a sermon Scicluna had planned to say for Christmas in whom he condemns adoption by same-sex couples.

"When I raised the issue that’s worrying me as a bishop [gay adoption] he encouraged me to speak out," said Bishop Scicluna.

Finally, beyond marriage equality, Pope Francis is opposed to women's right because let's don't forget that he always firmly opposed abortion.

And he recently, as reports The Independent, gave his blessing via a video link from the Vatican to a Mass in Madrid that supported government moves to tighten restrictions on abortion in Spain.

The new abortion law would allow terminations only in the case of rape or when there is a serious health risk to the mother or foetus.

So yes, Pope Francis is still against LGBT rights but to change the church's image, he won't publicly say it as the previous Pope.
