    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Diversity Movement leader, Marco Castillo, said that the statements of Pope Francisco to a group of journalists on homosexuality and the Church “show some openness on his side”, although he expects the pope to delve into the subject.

    Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 76, spoke for an hour and 20 minutes with reporters on the plane during his return to Italy after the end of the Youth Day in Brazil.

    “If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has a good heart, who am I to criticize him? The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains that “nobody should marginalize people for their sexual preference; on the contrary, gays should be integrated in society”, the pope said.

    “The highest authority of the Catholic Church has showed his broadmindedness, but still several changes are needed,” said Castillo, who is waiting for nine resolutions submitted to the Family Court for same sex couples to legalize their unions.

    Castillo acknowledged that he has always been waiting for the Church to change its position, although he understands it is a complicated situation. Still, he recognizes that “this is the first concrete demonstration that we have”. LN
