Pope Francis Urges Church Leaders Not To Alienate Children Of Same-Sex Couples! See What His Holiness Said HERE!!

Pope Francis says don't alienate children of same sex couples


Pope Francis is probably the BEST pope we have EVER had, like ever.

He doesn't judge anyone who is gay, he let a little boy wander on stage & hug him during a speech, let another little boy take his skullcap off, AND was named TIME's Person of the Year!

As if all of that isn't AH-MAZING enough, in a recently published discussion, Pope Francis has spoken out against alienating children in difficult family situations, specifically children of same sex couples, from the church!

He said:

“How can we proclaim Christ to these boys and girls? How can we proclaim Christ to a generation that is changing? We must be careful not to administer a vaccine against faith to them.”

His Holiness elaborated further by adding a specific instance when a little girl confessed to him that she was concerned about whether or not her mom's fiancé liked her!

Except it wasn't any ol' fiancé, the mother's partner was in fact a woman & the little girl was a child of a same-sex couple!

Looking at the English translation, it's not clear whether he's talking about a child of a same-sex couple, however, when you look at the Spanish & Italian versions the grammatical gender used was that of the feminine in both languages!!

Take a look:

English: “My mother’s fiancé doesn’t like me.”
Spanish: “La novia de mi mamá no me quiere.” (My mother’s girlfriend doesn’t love me.)
Italian: “La fidanzata di mia madre non mi vuol bene.” (My mother’s fiancée does not love me.)

Dayum! This is AH-MAZING that the he is speaking out against this kind of mistreatment!!! Pope Francis is definitely a game-changer!

We love it!!!

    Having been brought up catholic and going to catholic school, this pope is just going back to the old teachings. I remember the nuns telling us that all children are innocent and that they have a special place in God's heart. I was also taught that God and Jesus accepted everyone. Even after divorce or having committed a huge sin that God forgave and accepted you anyways!

    I still say Miley Cyrus, or Kanye should hav been named person of the year.
    Kanye walks on water, and Miley have more talent in her pinky toe, than the rest of the worlds population combined.

    Thats wonderful and fantastic. Good for him. But what would really impress me is if he voluntarily steps down and lets a lesbian woman be pope. Now that would be forward thinking.
