The pope said he thinks same-sex couples should be allowed to have civil union.

In a documentary directed by Avgeny Afineevsky and premiered today,  the pope said:

“Homosexual people have the 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 have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered.”

The film also showed the people encouraging two gay men to attend church with their three kids.

ILGA Europe, an association that promotes the interests of LGBTI people in a statement shared via Twitter said:

“In the context where there is so much polarisation and scapegoating of LGBTI people, often endorsed and stoked by religious leaders, Pope Francis’ statement on same-sex unions is to be welcomed and should be carefully listened to,” .

“We will monitor closely to see in how far the statement will be picked up by the churches and will lead to real change for LGBTI people and their families.”
