Pope Francis said on Wednesday that the church cannot accept same-sex marriage because marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman.
But the pontiff stressed that states can and should pass civil laws to allow same-sex couples to have inheritance rights and health care coverage.
“Marriage is marriage. It doesn’t mean condemning people who are like that. No please! They are our brothers and sisters and we must accompany them, ”he said, as he returned to Rome on a flight from Bratislava.
Francis told onboard media that the flight laws were important in helping “many people of different sexual orientation.”
