Not all of the Catholic leaders agree with the Pope’s statements regarding same-sex civil unions. WND reported:
“The Pope’s statement clearly contradicts what has been the long-standing teaching of the Church about same-sex unions,” Tobin said.
“The Church cannot support the acceptance of objectively immoral relationships. Individuals with same-sex attraction are beloved children of God and must have their personal human rights and civil rights recognized and protected by law,” he added.
