On June 16, Pope Francis spoke to an Italian family association, and following his scripted remarks, he made some unscripted comments. The church has long been on the wrong side of science. He denounced those couples who screen for abnormalities in the womb, likening the decision to a Nazi-like tactic. “Last century”, he said, “the whole world was scandalized by what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today, we do the same thing but with white gloves”.
Pope Francis also says gay couples cannot be considered a family. Well, neither can the Catholic church. The papal statement would be funny if it wasn’t so revolting, offensive, insulting and hypocritical. The biblical Jesus was gay, he lived his life with 12 men and supported laws degrading women.
