Pope Francis has ended his trip to Slovakia by speaking out on abortion and same-sex marriage.
During his flight back to Rome he said "abortion is homicide".
But he backed away from denying communion to politicians who support abortion rights.
He also spoke about marriage and said it is a sacrament between a man and woman, but added that same-sex civil unions are good and helpful to many people.
The pontiff said the Catholic Church “doesn’t have the power to change a sacrament as it was instituted by the Lord”, but he supported civil laws that try to help “those who have a diverse sexual orientation”.
He said: "If a homosexual couple wants to lead a life together, the State has the possibility to give them safety, stability, inheritance; and not only to homosexuals but to all the people who want to live together (in a civil union)".
“This does not at all mean that they have to be condemned: No, they are our brothers and sisters. But marriage is a sacrament, between a man and a woman''.

I don’t understand this. Civil unions were something that people talked about before gay marriage was legal. Now the gay marriage is legal is there even an option for civil unions is are people still using that?
Knowing something is wrong and not doing what little you are able to do to oppose it (if you can do anything at all) — not talking heroic efforts here where someone tries to do things they could only possibly do by, just for giggles, the compelling power and prompting of the Holy Spirit — is the worst form of going along to get along.
The pope has never been married.
He doesn’t know what the hell he is talking about.
He’s waving merrily at people as they trot down the broad road that leads to destruction.
True homophobic people fear homosexuals more than they fear the Lord. A true homophobic individual would do everything they can to avoid conflict with homosexuals, make every compromise asked of them, and virtue signal their political correctness loudly in hopes of being left alone.
The end times are upon us, folks...
Get right with God.
He used to work the bars. He knows a thing or two because he’s seen a thing or two.
Pope Francis does not honor or hear Sacred Scripture except through the lens of his feelings and experience. As such he dishonors the office he pretends to occupy.
The Killer Bees - Bergoglio, Barron and Biden:
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination
While he lightly reinforces the Catholic position on marriage Wherever that was being legislated to accept homo marriage he could have condemned it now dances around homo activity.
Now they legalize both fornication and sodomy.

Thus saieth the False Prophet.
Have another wafer and a sip of wine.
So Sayeth Pope Gomer.
