Pope ‘Worries’ About Gay People In The Clergy

Pope Francis

Pope Francis said he is concerned about gay people in the clergy in a new book. He said some societies consider homosexuality to be “fashionable.” 

The soon-to-be published book is in the form of an interview with Pope Francis about religious vocations, according to the Independent. He’s quoted responding to a clergyman who said gay people living in religious housing isn’t so bad because it’s “only an expression of affection.”

Pope Francis said the argument “is in error. In consecrated life and priestly life, there is no place for this kind of affection.”

Though Pope Francis still maintains that gay Catholics contribute to the church, saying, “they are persons who will live in the service of the church, of the Christian community, of the people of God. Let’s never forget this perspective.”
