Pope Francis Against Gay Marriage, Gay Adoption

"For decades the Catholic hierarchy has been in need of desperate reform. In his life, Jesus condemned gays zero times.

We hope this Pope will trade in his red shoes for a pair of sandals and spend a lot less time condemning and a lot more time foot-washing."

Love is what makes a family

Just last week, Puerto Rico’s Supreme Court upheld a law that prohibits joint adoption by gay couples.

In a 5-4 decision, the court said a woman could not adopt a 12-year-old girl whom her longtime partner conceived through in vitro fertilization. In the majority opinion the court stated a family composed of a mother and father is best for a child’s “dignity, stability and well-being.”
