Pope Francis reportedly against gay adoption

See also

Pope Francis is viewed by many as a very liberal and progressive religious figure. However, according to a Dec. 29 Huffington Post report, the Pope’s stance on homosexuality may not extend as far as the public assumed.

The Pope has publically said that he doesn’t feel it’s his place to judge someone for being gay. This led to him being chosen as person of the year by “The Advocate,” a gay, lesbian and transgender magazine.

The selection committee may be disappointed to learn their person of the year reportedly is speaking against a bill that will allow gay couples to adopt in Maltese. Maltese Bishop Charles Scicluna claims he spoke to Pope Francis about the bill and that the Pope was “shocked” and encouraged him to speak out against it.

Pope Francis has also referred to gay marriage as an “attack” on God’s plan in the past. The Catholic church has typically taken a stand against homosexuality, but the current Pope’s views seem contradictory to many. Those who applauded his earlier comments regarding withholding his judgment are disappointed to learn he may not support gay adoption.
