In a new documentary by director Evgeny Afineevsky, “Francesco,” amid a conversation about pastoral outreach to LGBTQ+ people, Pope Francis stated, “Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They are children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or made miserable over it. What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered.”
The Vatican declined to comment until the movie had been viewed.
