Pope Francis on Gay Marriage

pope francis(Community Matters) As a pragmatist. 

Marcelo Márquez, a gay rights leader and theologian who wrote to, then, Cardinal Bergoglio – the Cardinal had argued for a compromise of civil unions but lost the vote in Argentina’s bishops’ conference:

“He told me that homosexuals need to have recognized rights and that he supported civil unions, but not same sex marriage”

I haven’t otherwise written about Pope Francis but I do congratulate Catholics on their new Pope, who by virtue of his billion+ followers is always an important world leader. I am impressed by what I’ve read about Pope Francis’ humility and scholarship.
