Homosexuals must not be marginalised, pope says

'We are all creatures loved by God'

Homosexuals must not be marginalised, pope says

Rome, January 12 - Homosexuals are loved by God and must not be marginalised, Pope Francis said in his book 'God's name is mercy' written with Vaticanist Andrea Tornielli and published Tuesday. "First and foremost I prefer to speak of 'homosexual people': first comes the person, in his or her fullness and dignity. And a person is not defined by their sexual orientation alone: let's not forget that we are all creatures loved by God," Francis said. "I prefer it if homosexual people come to confession, if they remain close to God, if we can pray together," he continued. Francis also returned to his famous phrase 'who am I to judge?', which for many signaled a turning point in the Church's attitude towards the homosexual community. "On that occasion I said: if a person is gay, seeks the Lord and is of good will, who am I to judge? I paraphrased from memory the catechism of the Catholic Church, which explains that these people must be treated with sensitivity and not marginalised," he said.
