Pope Francis Endorses Same Sex Civil Unions

Pope Francis has officially endorsed same sex civil unions. This stance is an official departure from previous viewpoints of the Vatican.

“Homosexuals have a right to be part of the family,” the Pope said in “Francesco,” a documentary about his life, according to the Catholic News Agency. “They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it.”

“What we have to create is a civil union law,” he continued in the documentary. “That way, they are legally covered. I stood up for that.” Right now, the documentary is set to debut on October 25 at the Savannah Film Festival.
