The leader of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis has endorsed same sex marriage in comments for a documentary that premiered Wednesday October 21.
He is the first pontiff to endorse same-sex civil unions as he calls for civil union laws to be in place in order to make the homosexual covered legally.
“Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God. You can’t kick someone out of a family, nor make their life miserable for this. What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered”, Pope Francis said.
