    ROME (AP) — Pope Francis endorsed same-sex civil unions for the first time as pontiff while being interviewed for the feature-length documentary “Francesco,” which premiered Wednesday at the Rome Film Festival. The papal thumbs-up came midway through the film that delves into issues Francis cares about most, including the environment, poverty, migration, racial and income inequality, and the people most affected by discrimination. “Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God,” Francis said in one of his sit-down interviews for the film. “You can’t kick someone out of a family, nor make their...

    ROME — In a documentary that premiered Wednesday in Rome, Pope Francis called for the passage of civil union laws for same-sex couples, departing from the position of the Vatican’s doctrinal office and the pope’s predecessors on the issue. The remarks came amid a portion of the documentary that reflected on pastoral care for those who identify as LGBT. “Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it,” Pope Francis said in the film, of...

    SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett has fallen under scrutiny for being proudly Catholic, to the point where some are concerned that she would serve her beliefs more than the American people as a Supreme Court justice. But this is a misinformed assumption; many professionals of faith can and do successfully work in the public sector without their beliefs infringing upon those with whom they work or the people their position serves. Personally, since becoming a Christian several years ago, I have learned the difference between having a faith platform and a faith practice as an owner of multiple businesses and...

    Commentator Bill Maher has drawn backlash after calling Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett 'nuts' and arguing that Senate Democrats should make an issue of her Catholic faith. 'Chuck Schumer said Democrats won't make Barrett's religion an issue, but they should because being nuts is relevant,' Maher said in a monologue on HBO's Real Time on Friday. After hearings this week, the Senate Judiciary Committee set October 22 for its vote to recommend Barrett´s nomination to the full Senate, with a final confirmation vote expected by month´s end.

    In an interview with LifeSiteNews published today, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò said, in a message to Judge Barrett, and all true Catholics who would serve in public office, that they should “bear witness to the One who shed His Blood for them,” for with that, he said, will come “the necessary graces to carry out their duties in public affairs” and also they will “be an example to their brothers and will merit an eternal reward, which is the only thing that really matters.”

Trump this week on The Bishop Strickland Show, which is being streamed live every Tuesday night on LifeSite’s YouTube channel here at 9:00 pm EST. Strickland is one of the most outspoken bishops on pro-life issues in the entire country. During his conversation with co-host Terry Barber, His Excellency said that we should “put politics aside” and simply recognize that the sitting President of the United States is speaking about unborn children in a way that makes him sound like he’s a Catholic bishop. “He’s basically quoting...

    Among the fast and furious exchanges during the first presidential debate between President Trump and former Vice President Biden, the latter attempted, with some success, to reassure the public about his “Main Street” roots. The vice president said of President Trump and the wealthy elite generally, “[T]his guy and his friends look down on so many people. They look down their nose on people like Irish Catholics, like me, who grew up in Scranton. They look down on people who don’t have money. They look down on people who are of a different faith.” The comments were in response to...
