Pope Francis Lights Up Internet With Private Comments to Gay Man: ‘God Made You Like This’

The internet has been set ablaze following reports of highly controversial comments made by Pope Francis during a private conversation with an openly gay man. Juan Carlos Cruz, who suffered abuse at the hands of a Chilean priest, spent three days with Francis talking openly about his struggles with his sexuality and horrific experiences of abuse.

Here’s what Pope Francis allegedly said, according to Juan Carlos, who discussed his meeting with the pontiff in an interview with CNN:

“You know Juan Carlos, that does not matter. God made you like this. God loves you like this. The Pope loves you like this and you should love yourself and not worry about what people say.”

If reported accurately, the pope’s comments mark a distinct break from over 2,000 years of Catholic teaching, which considers homosexuality “objectively disordered” and in contradiction to God’s law.
