Pope Francis says homosexual tendencies are not a sin

If you have a tendency to anger, it’s not a sin. Now, if you are angry and hurt people, the sin is there. Sin is acting, of thought, word and deed, with freedom,” Francis said.Asked by Spanish journalist Jordi Evole if he thinks it’s a “rarity” for parents to have a homosexual child, the Pope answered that “in theory, no.”“But I’m talking about a person who is developing, and parents start to see strange things. Please consult, and go to a professional, and there you will see what it is and may not be homosexual, that is due to something else,” he said.Challenge for the familyFrancis also said that in his opinion, it’s usually challenging for a family to have a homosexual child, as they can be “scandalized by something they don’t understand, something out of the ordinary … I’m not making a judgement of value, I’m doing a phenomenological analysis,” he said.The pope’s words came in response to a question about comments he made last summer, when he said parents who detect their children have homosexual behaviors should take them to a psychiatrist.In a new interview that aired Sunday with the Spanish news outlet La Sexta, the Pope said he was “explaining that you never throw a homosexual person out of the house, but I made a distinction that when the person is very young and begins to show strange symptoms, it’s useful to go, I said to a psychiatrist. At that moment you say the word that comes out first and, on top of that, in a language that is not yours.”From his comments, Francis said, the media selected the words “‘the Pope sends homosexuals to the psychiatrist,’ and they didn’t see the rest, and this is ill-intentioned.”A homosexual has a right to a familyDuring the interview, the journalist alternates between the terms “homosexual” and “gay,” but the Pope always uses the word “homosexual.” During his trip back from Brazil, in 2013, speaking with journalists, Francis famously became the first Pope to use the word “gay.”Once a homosexual identity is “set,” Francis said, a homosexual man or woman “has the right to a family, and that father and mother have the right to a son or daughter, come as it may, and no son or daughter can be thrown out of the home.”WhatsApplast_img read more
