It comes as no surprise that the U.N. Antonio Guterres has commended Pope Francis for his support of same-sex civil unions. Breitbart reported:
“This is a clear demonstration of a fundamental principle, which is the principle of nondiscrimination,” said Guterres in New York during an interview with the Associated Press. “And one of the things that has been very clear in the U.N. doctrine on this is that non-discrimination is also relevant in the questions of sexual orientation.
“So this is decision of the Pope is, of course, extremely welcome from our perspective.”
