Pope’s Message to Parents of Gay Children

Pope Francis

(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – In a statement seemingly aimed at some social conservatives around the globe, Pope Francis warned parents of gay children to “not hide behind an attitude of condemnation.”

As reported by the New York Post in an article headlined “Pope Francis says parents should ‘never condemn’ gay children”:

“Pope Francis told parents this week that they should support gay children and ‘never condemn’ them.

“The 85-year-old progressive pontiff made his latest LGBT-supporting comments Wednesday during an unscripted part of his weekly audience as he discussed difficulties faced by parents.

“Those issues included ‘parents who see different sexual orientations in their children and how to handle this, how to accompany their children, and not hide behind an attitude of condemnation,’ Francis said. [emphasis added]


“‘To them I say: Don’t be afraid … Never condemn a child,’ he continued, according to Agence France-Presse.” [emphasis added]
