Pope Francis has publicly endorsed civil unions for same-sex
couples.

The Catholic News Agency reported
Francis made the comments in a documentary that debuted in Rome on Wednesday.

“Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the
family,” he said. They’re children of God and have a right to a family.
Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it.”

“What we have to create is a civil union
law,” added Francis. “That way they are legally covered.”
