“Road from Emmaus” – What Pope Francis Said

by Kenny Cheng

In the last couple weeks, Pope Francis made a few headlines as he talked about civil unions. A lot was said about whether or not the Church had changed her position on same-sex marriage as Catholics and non-Catholics had all kinds of reactions. What exactly did Pope Francis mean when he talked about “civil unions” and a “right to a family” for our homosexual brothers and sisters? What exactly does the Church teach on homosexuality? And how do we navigate these kinds of conversations? Andrew and Jason share about how they unpacked these questions to get some clarity for themselves.
