Who still thinks Pope Francis is a liberal?

It had been hoped that the Pope was in the process of softening the Catholic Church’s position on LGBT rights, particularly as it was just last month that he told Juan Carlos Cruz, a gay survivor of sexual abuse by a prominent Chilean priest: “God made you like this and loves you like this and I don’t care.” 

However, during unscripted remarks at Forum delle Famiglie, an Italian group for Catholic families, he closed the door on the idea of same-sex couples forming a family within the Church.

3. Not a liberal

He represents a small (very small in some areas) step forward in a few areas.

4. I'm a catholic, but you're more right than Pope F on LGBT rights and abortion.

I'm sorry.

We're working on it.
