Pope Francis Asks Christians to Apologise from LGBT People
The spiritual head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis has expressed at a press conference on Sunday that was held on the papal plane that Christians all over the world should apologise to LGBT people and others who have been exploited or offended by the church.
According to a report by CNN, the Pope said:
“I repeat what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says: that they must not be discriminated against, that they must be respected and accompanied pastorally.
The Church must ask forgiveness for not behaving many times – when I say the Church, I mean Christians! The Church is holy, we are sinners!
I believe that the church not only should apologize to the person who is gay whom it has offended, but has to apologize to the poor, to exploited women, to children exploited for labor; it has to ask forgiveness for having blessed many weapons,” the Pope said.
