Pope Francis Hints......Catholic Church Could Support Same Sex Union.
But he left the door open for the church to acknowledge other formally recognised relationships that would provide economic security and healthcare. But the pope also seemed to note that civil unions provide some financial stability for couples, mentioning both health care and property rights as guarantees that come as a result of certain civil unions. As Catholic News Service reported, the pope said that moves to “regulate diverse situations of cohabitation [are] driven by the need to regulate economic aspects among persons, as for instance to assure medical care.”“We have to look at different cases and evaluate them in their variety,” Francis said.
