Pope Francis departs from Vatican teachings
Pope Francis endorsed same-sex civil unions last week sending shockwaves through the Catholic world.
The Pope made the admission in a documentary called ‘ Francesco’, which covered the issues he cares most about, including climate change, refugees and social inequality.
During the documentary Pope Francis says that gay couples deserve to be part of the family and also added his support for civil unions to give them legal protections.
The Vatican has refused to comment on the issue.
Do you support Pope Francis’s comments? Is he doing the right thing by bringing the Catholic church into the modern era?
