Vatican clarifies stand on same-sex relationships

They still don’t want you to be gay, sorry

On Monday, the Vatican released a statement that hoped to encourage "tolerance" and "mercy" for LGBT individuals. On Wednesday, pressure from conservatives forced the Church to "backtrack" a little bit. Some Catholic leaders called the document a betrayal, while others pointed out that it is not supported by scriptures.

 

According to a report by CNN, the Church had to clarify that the document is a "work in progress" and that it they did not mean to create an "impression of a positive evaluation" of same-sex relationships. They said that they merely wanted to welcome gays and lesbians to the church, not anything else more radical.
