At the Rome Film Festival, the premiere of the documentary film about the Pope “Francesco” took place. It has many LGBTQ stories. In particular, he called for the adoption of laws permitting unions between people of the same sex. In an interview for the documentary, he said that same-sex couples should be “protected by the law.”
Homosexuals have the right to be part of the family. They are children of God and have a right to a family. No one should be driven out or unhappy because of this, – Francis first expressed his opinion on this issue.
Francis has previously stated that the persecution in the modern world of Jews, Roma and LGBTQ people reminds him of the days of Adolf Hitler. It is noteworthy that he did not always have such views. Ten years ago, when he was still serving as bishop in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he opposed the legalization of same-sex unions. The official position of the Vatican remains the same.
