Pope endorses civil union laws for same-sex couples

As someone who grew up gay and Catholic, I certainly never thought Id see this one in my lifetime. While Francis is certainly liberal for a pope, I admit, Im (happily) stunned.

CNN) Pope Francis has declared support for civil unions for same-sex couples for the first time, according to the Catholic News Agency.

The Pope made the historic remarks in a new documentary film, "Francesco," which was released in Rome on Wednesday.

"Homosexual people have a right to be in a family. They're children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable over it," the Pope said in the film, the Catholic News Agency reported.

3. I would love it if the Pope said, "The church is okay with being pro-choice."

Thus rendering ACB's entire life moot.
