The Catholic church has finally declared its stance on the LGBTQI+ community on Monday March 15 after Vatican says it will not bless same sex marriage.
Part of a statement approved by leader of the Church, Pope Francis, states that ‘God can’t bless sin’ they therefore referred to same sex marriage as a choice but described them in the statement as sinful and ‘cannot be recognized as objectively ordered’ to God’s plans.
this decision by the Vatican has been faced with several backlash as many in the LGBTQI community as many see it as setback to gays of the catholic faith.
The issue of same sex marriage came up very strongly few days after the inauguration of President Joe Biden who has pledged his support for the LGBTQ community. Here’s the thing; will the President be concerned because of his affiliate to the faith as a dedicated catholic all his life after Vatican described it as a ‘choice and lifestyle’ ?
