Blessings For Same-Sex Couple in Africa Will Gradually Have a Stand – Pope

The head of the Catholic Church, the bishop of Rome and sovereign of the Vatican City State, Pope Francis, has expressed confidence that critics of blessings for same-sex couples in Africans, would gradually accept his position.

According to Reuters, the pope said in an interview published on Monday that Africans were a “special case” in the opposition of bishops and many other people in the continent to homosexuality.

Recall that the pope allowed blessings of same-sex couples in a document called Fiducia Supplicans (Supplicating Trust), last month.

This proposal caused a debate within the Catholic Church, especially among churches in Africa.

Addressing the case in a recent interview, with Italian newspaper La Stampa, he said “Those who protest vehemently belong to small ideological groups,. “A special case are Africans: for them homosexuality is something ‘bad’ from a cultural point of view, they don’t tolerate it

“But in general, I trust that gradually everyone will be reassured by the spirit of the ‘Fiducia Supplicans’ declaration by the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith: it aims to include, not divide,” the pope said.
