Pope Francis Speaks Out on Homosexuality – And Further Angers Traditionalists

posted on January 28, 2023

Paul Elie of The New Yorker reports that traditionalist Catholics are once again criticizing Pope Francis in the wake of comments he made about homosexuality in a recent AP interview. Francis said, in reference to homosexuality, “Let’s make a distinction between sin and crime.” Traditionalists see these comments as the latest step in Francis’ slow path toward accepting homosexuality. Elie writes, “The traditionalists’ surge of enmity against Francis is a consequence of the more open Church that he has called for and has fostered throughout his nearly ten years in office.”
