Pope backs Civil Union for Gay Couples

In the first of its kind (breaking with Catholic Church Tradition) Pope Francis gives his blessing to Same Sex Civil Unions. He was quoted as saying: “Homosexual people have the right to be a family. They are children of God. …You can’t kick someone out of a family, nor make their life miserable for this. What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered.”

However, he still maintained that the sacrement of marriage is between a man and woman.
