Pope Francis has publicly called for the creation of civil union laws for same-sex couples. In new documentary Francesco, which premiered in Rome on Wednesday, the Catholic leader – whose views concerning the LGBTQ+ community have been wildly inconsistent over the years – said same-sex couples should be “legally covered”.

According to the Catholic News Agency, Francis told filmmaker Evgeny Afineevsky that we “have to create a civil union law” and that “homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family,” adding: “I stood up for that.” The post Pope Francis endorses same-sex civil unions in a dramatic shift on gay rights appeared first on GAY TIMES.
