The Vatican Shifts Tone on Gays, Domestic Partnerships

Hosted by

For 2000 years, the Roman Catholic Church has regarded gays and lesbians as “intrinsically disordered.” Now, for the first time, a Synod of bishops has proclaimed they have “gifts and qualities” that could be welcomed.

The first Synod of Bishops called by Pope Francis has stunned the Roman Catholic world. Never before have the talents of gays or lesbians even been discussed in such a forum—let alone same-sex couples. That’s according to Father James Martin, Jesuit priest and editor of the Jesuit magazine, America.
