What a Jesuit priest thinks of Pope Francis's statement on homosexuality
Pope Francis’ recent statement about homosexuality has a lot of people talking. In an interview with the Associated Press on Wednesday, Pope Francis said laws punishing gay people are “unfair” – adding that the Catholic Church should work for their repeal.
These remarks by the Pope directly challenge the nearly 70 countries and jurisdictions where it is a crime to be gay. The pope said homosexuality is “a human condition.”
We sit down with Father James Martin, a Jesuit priest and the author of “Learning to Pray” and “Jesus: A Pilgrimage.” to discuss the pope’s comments.
