Pope Francis: Church Should Apologize To Gays And Other Marginalized Groups


Aboard a flight home from Armenia, Pope Francis fielded a pointed question from reporters: Did he agree with German Cardinal Reinhard Marx, who, during the wake associated with Orlando shooting, said gays deserve an apology from the Church?

His answer was frank.

“I think that the church not just should apologize to the person who is gay whom it has offended,” the pope told reporters, “but has got to apologize to your poor, to exploited women, to children used for labor; it’s got to inquire of forgiveness for having blessed many weapons.”
