Pope Francis has publicly announced his support for same-sex marriage.
As the newspaper La Repubblica writes, the words of the pontiff on this topic sounded in a documentary released today at the Rome Festival.
Francis called homosexual people “children of God.”
“They have a right to a family. No one should be driven out. We must create a law on civil unions”, – the publication quotes the words of the head of the Roman Catholic Church.
The newspaper notes that the words of Francis are addressed not to Italy and its legislation, but to the whole world. The publication considers the Pope’s phone call to a homosexual couple who are raising three small adopted children as the most “touching moment” of the film.
