We Are Church International warmly welcomes the wonderful news that Pope Francis supports civil unions for Same Sex couples. This is a hugely significant step for Pope Francis and the Catholic Church.

We call on Pope Francis to follow up his wonderful words with actions to introduce church blessings for Same Sex couples and to revise teaching to remove the descriptions of LGBTQ+ people as objectively disordered and their love as intrinsically evil.
