Vatican banned blessing of gay unions, but Pope Francis not so sure?

Oak Park Chronicles

To go by Jesuit’s America Mag:

While it is unclear how much attention Pope Francis gave the document, Gerry [Gerard O’Connell, its man in Rome] says that it is significant that the document said the pope was “informed” and “assented to its publication,” a more hesitant phrasing than “approved” and “ordered its publication,” the terms the Vatican normally uses.

Statement “may have been rushed past the pope,” the headline says.

Which might explain what “disappointed L.G.B.T. Catholics who had come to appreciate the pope’s more supportive tone.”
