The director of the Catholic News Agency of Argentina (AICA) has told CNA that claims of Pope Francis supporting gay civil unions when he was archbishop of Buenos Aires are not true. Catholic News Agency reports:

Miguel Woites, who works directly with the Bishops' Conference of Argentina, the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, and the Apostolic Nunciature, dismissed statementes made by Sergio Rubin, the author of an interview with Cardinal Bergoglio titled "Over Heaven and Earth."

Since Pope Francis's election March 13, media reports have circulated Rubin's claim that the future Pope had supported homosexual unions as a possible political compromise in Argentina. Rubin has been the only source used by the media for this claim.

  1. This headline is a bit offensive for an "official" Catholic newspaper. God loves/supports homosexuals as much as anyone else.
