“Homosexuality is not a crime”: Pope Francis


This is not the first time that Pope Francis has advocated homosexuality. Unlike Catholic traditionalism, the high priest, of Argentine descent, was notable for taking a negative view of what traditional Catholic morality suggests.

A revolutionary pope, many call him inside and outside the temples. And it is that this time the Holy Father criticized the laws criminalizing homosexuality, describing them as “unjust”, because, according to what he said, God loves all his children as they are. In addition, he asked the bishops who support these laws to welcome LGBTIQ+ people to the church.

“Being gay is not a crime,” Francisco said during an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday. The pope acknowledged that in some parts of the world, Catholic bishops support laws that criminalize homosexuality or discriminate against the LGTBIQ+ community.

However, he attributed these views to cultural paradigms and generational processes and indicated that the bishops in particular must go through a process of change and adjustment with society in order to recognize the dignity of everyone.

He also stressed that the Catholic Church can and must work to end laws against gender diversity. “They have to do it, they have to do it,” the pope pointed out to the aforementioned medium.

The pope cited the Catechism of the Catholic Church to point out that homosexuals should be received and respected, not marginalized or discriminated against.

“We are all children of God and God loves us as we are and with the strength that each of us fights for our dignity,” Francis stressed.

The highest hierarch of the Catholic Church said on Tuesday that homosexuality should be distinguished between crime and sin.

“Being gay is not a crime,” he said. “It is not a crime. Yes, but it is a sin. Let’s first distinguish sin from crime. But the lack of charity is also a sin,” he concludes.
