FrankenPope urged to meet same-sex parents after ‘alarming’ comments

Lay “Catholic” group dismayed at Pope’s claim that ‘only heterosexual couples’ can form a family

AQ Tom: As I said when those comments were first reported: Nice words, but actions speak louder – namely, meetings with:

  1. A “married” male homosexual couple

2. A “married” lesbian couple (one transgendered to a “male”)

A Catholic lay group has sharply criticised Pope Francis after he said only heterosexuals could form a family in the eyes of the church.

“It is painful to say this today: people speak of varied families, of various kinds of family” but “the family [as] man and woman in the image of God is the only one”, Pope Francis said in unscripted comments last weekend to a gathering of Forum of Family Associations, an Italian lay movement representing Catholic families.

We Are Church said it was “appalled and alarmed” at the Pope’s comments, as reported by Italian news agency Ansa.

“This reinforcement of anti-LGBTQI attitudes and the refusal to recognise LGBTQI families as true Catholic families by Pope Francis will be treated with incredulity and dismay by the Catholic faithful,” the Irish group said.

Pope Francis will visit Ireland in August for the church’s World Meeting of Families.
