Pope Francis has publicly endorsed same sex marriage and It is no longer news what is going on worldwide today.
The head of the catholic church, Pope Francis has publicly endorsed this on Wednesday 31st October, 2020 . He said it in an interview.
This remarks which is coming from the head of the catholic church, this Pope Francis news will cause a lot of controversy. His remarks has already stirred up controversies both offline and online. Many Catholics out there are not in support of the the decision of the Pope to legalize same sex marriage.
Same sex marriage in the catholic church means that a man and a man can now walk up to the altar and be joined as one. It also means that a woman and another woman can walk up to the altar in marriage.
Many gay Catholics and others that are not Catholics are in support of this decision. This decision was Made by the head of the Catholic church, Pope Francis. Meanwhile, the decision made by the Pope contradicts the teachings of the Catholic church,
Pope Francis’ remarks on same sex marriage which was said in his interview in the Vatican City of Rome clearly supports same sex marriage in the Catholic Church.
This is why Pope Francis Endorsed same sex marriage in the Catholic Church
In remarks during his interview in the Vatican City, he said ” Homosexuals have the right to be in a family. They are children of God”. He went further and said ”What we have to have is a civil union law. He said that way they are covered”.
Pope Francis has once gone on an outreach to a foreign country in 2013. That was when he uttered the famous words ”who am I to judge”. What he was trying to say is that who is he to judge the gay and the lesbian. In other words, he is trying to say he cannot judge the homosexuals. This is one of the reasons why he has openly endorsed same sex in the Catholic church.

Since then, Pope Francis started to minister to homosexuals and to transsexuals prostitutes. He also welcomed people in gay partnership into his inner circle. This his endorsement has made him become the first ever pope to endorse same sex marriage. This is the first in the history of the Catholic church.
In the teaching of the church, it was stated that marriage is supposed to be between a man and woman. Not a man and a man or a woman and a woman. This was summarized in Genesis 2:24 where it was stated that: ”Therefore, shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife : and they shall be one flesh.
If Pope francis supports this particular teaching of the church, then how come he publicly endorses same sex marriage saying that ”’they are also children of God” and that ”they have the right to be in a family.
Other Catholics reaction
Other Catholics worldwide have also expressed their opposition to the decision made by Pope Francis. Not only have other Catholics, but also the predecessors of Pope Francis.
Many years ago, in 2003, under the Pontificate of Pope John Paul II, the church’s congregation for the doctrine of the Faith, its doctrinal watchdog then which was led by Pope Benedict XVI, issued some considerations that regards giving legal recognition to unions that are between homosexual persons.
The content of the document was ”The Church teaches that respect for homosexual persons cannot lead in any way to approval of homosexual behaviour or to legal recognition of the homosexual union”

This statement clearly states that homosexuality will not be approved in the Catholic church irrespective of the respect that the Church has for homosexual persons. But today, it is another case entirely.
The advocates that are within the church for civil unions see the remarks of the Pope as a slap to the efforts of the past leaders of the Catholic church and as a breakthrough in the long-hurting relationship between the Church and gay people. It is vexing that the Pope is in support of objectively immoral relationships. This Pope Francis news is so vexing.
Conclusion on Why Pope Francis endorsed same sex marriage in the Catholic church
The fact that the leader of the Catholic church, the Pope has legalized immoral relationships, that is, union between a man and a man, and union between a woman and a woman is ludicrious. There will always be Catholics who will kick against this decision made by the pope, and also, the Church is not in full support of this decision at all.
However, the people who are being talked about, that is the homosexuals, the gay and lesbians are happy about this new decision made by the pope. They will begin to benefit more from it as they can now be legally married and start a family.
Speaking personally, as a catholic, I am not in support of this new development at all. This will begin to cause more havoc and controversy in the Catholic church and around the whole world. Legalizing same sex marriage is something that should not even be compromised at all. But here we are today compromising our standards.
We are hoping that something is being done about it because soon, this homosexuality may begin to spread and even those who are not homosexuals may begin to join the already existing homosexuals and that is how the numbers will begin to increase.
Please, do all that is in your power to makes sure that this homosexuality does not spread, it is immoral and the Bible does not support the union of a man and a man or a woman and another woman, it is meant to between a man and a woman.
