I’m not saying he did, but there is a lot of talk going on about this already. There ae people coming from all sides, to either say he’s guilty of condeming these two men to imprisonment, or saying he had nothing to do with it.
I’m not sure yet. But these are two of the articles about it for you to read.
On same-sex marriage:The new pope has called gay marraige “a scheme to destroy God’s plan” and “a real and dire anthropological throwback.” In 2010, he was a vocal opponent of the Argentinian government’s proposed legislation to legalize same-sex marriage.
On abortion:He has rallied his clergy against the “culture of death” that is the pro-abortion movement.
On contraceptives:The new pope strongly opposed Argentinian PresidentCristina Fernández de Kirchner‘s efforts todistribute free contraceptives, likely seeing it as part of the aforementioned “culture of death.”
When people say it’s a stupid, superficial thing to avoid eating at Chik-Fil-A just because you disagree with the politics of the higher-ups, I assume those people don’t realise Chik-Fil-A profits are pumped into organisations that literally support legislation to execute gay people.
When people are actively spreading bigotry, it’s not superficial to take your business elsewhere.
