“They Have Right To Be In A Family”: Pope Supports Same-Sex Civil Unions

he two-hour documentary traces the seven years of Pope’s hold forth and his travels.


Pope Francis defended the appropriate of homosexual {couples} to enter into legally recognised civil unions in a documentary that premiered on the Rome Movie Competition on Wednesday.

Within the movie, “Francesco” by Evgeny Afineevsky, the Argentine pope says that gays have “the appropriate to be in a household.”

“These are kids of God, they’ve the appropriate to a household,” Francis says within the movietalking in Spanish.

“What we have now to create is a regulation of civil union, they’ve the appropriate to be legally protected. I’ve defended that,” mentioned Francis.

However the former Jorge Bergoglio has at all times voiced opposition to homosexual marriage, saying that marriage ought to solely be between a person and lady.

Because the starting of the hold forth the Pope has spoken of respect for homosexuals and has been in opposition to their discrimination,” Vatican knowledgeable Vania de Luca instructed Rainews.

“The novelty at present is that he defends as pope a regulation for civil unions.”

‘No judgements’

After turning into pope in 2013, Francis took an unprecedented welcoming tone in direction of homosexuals, launching his well-known phrase, “Who am I to evaluate?” and welcoming homosexual {couples} to the Vatican on a number of events.

The 2-hour documentary traces the seven years of his hold forth and his travels.

Among the many most transferring moments of the movie is the Pope’s cellphone name to a homosexual couple, dad and mom of three younger kids, in response to a letter they despatched him saying how ashamed they have been to deliver their kids to the parish.

Francis invitations them to proceed to go to church whatever the Judgments of others.

Chilean Juan Carlos Cruz, an activist in opposition to sexual abuse throughout the church, accompanied the director to the movie screening on Wednesday.

After I met Pope Francis he instructed me he was very sorry about what occurred. Juan, it’s God who made you homosexual and he loves you anyway. God loves you and the Pope loves you too,” says Cruz within the movie.

The Russian-born Afineevsky, who attended the Pope’s basic viewers within the Vatican on Wednesday, was nominated for an Oscar and an Emmy in 2016 for “Winter of Hearth” in regards to the 2013-2014 protests in Ukraine.

In 2018 he acquired three Emmy nominations for “Cries from Syria” about that nation‘s civil warfare.
