Openly gay Irish Prime Minister and a pro-LGBT priest will address the pope during the World Meeting of Families to be held August 21-26 in Dublin.
During International Women's Day, a group of Catholic women had planned a conference with pro-LGBTQ speakers in the Vatican. But the event had to be held elsewhere. Pope Francis also canceled his mass.
Speaking to the Pontifical Academy for Life, Pope Francis showed that he knows nothing about gender identity.
Pope Francis comes to support the campaign against the Mexican government's desire to legalize marriage equality in the country.
According to the National Catholic Reporter, this is what he said: «Let’s think of the nuclear arms, of the possibility to annihilate in a few instants a very high number of human beings.
«Let’s think also of genetic manipulation, of the manipulation of life, or of the gender theory, that does not recognize the order of creation.
«With this attitude, man commits a new sin, that against God the Creator.
The Vatican launches a big survey and asks bishops and priests of the world to share their views on marriage equality, adoption by same-sex couples, divorce and contraception.
Now that we have a new Pope, it missed only his first words about marriage equality.
