The Vatican said Monday that the Catholic Church would not bless same-sex unions. The stance is certain to disappoint millions of gay and lesbian Catholics around the world. Pope Francis, who has frequently been praised for his welcoming tone towards LGBTQ people both within and outside the Church, approved the note.
This article has been corrected to reflect that the statement from the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith did not refer to homosexuality itself as a “sin” and “a choice.” A previous post has been deleted.
