In a report we have sighted online, the head of the Roman Catholic church, Pope Francis has disclosed that anyone who discards gay people “doesn’t have a human heart”.
In the reports by the mirror.co.uk, his words which doesn’t conform to the beliefs of some Catholics moved British comedian Stephen K. Amos to tears.
Pope Francis however also urged Stephen and other visiting celebrities to pray for him so he can do his job better.
Stephen told the Pope: “I lost my mother, three months ago I buried my twin sister, who were both very religious.
“So me coming on this pilgrimage, being non-religious, I was looking for answers and faith. But as a gay man, I don’t feel accepted.”
Francis replied carefully: “Giving more importance to the adjective [gay] rather than the noun [man], this is not good. We are all human beings and have dignity. It does not matter who you are, or how you live your life – you do not lose your dignity.
“There are people that prefer to select or discard people because of the adjective. These people don’t have a human heart.”
He added: “For those of you who are believers, pray for me. For those of you who do not believe, could you wish me a good journey, so I do not let anyone down.”
Stephen left in tears and said: “If it had been the answer I was expecting I would have walked out. Hearing what he said floored me.
“He gave me faith in humanity. He knows his response to my question… will have ramifications around the world.
