Pope Francis says "fashionable" homosexuality "is something that worries me"

In the interview with Spanish-born missionary priest, Fernando Prado, he was quoted: ‘In our societies, it even seems homosexuality is fashionable. And this mentality, in some way, also influences the life of the church.’…

Separately, quoted Francis in the book as commenting on a clergyman who had told him that having gay people in Catholic religious housing ‘isn’t so grave’ because it’s ‘only an expression of affection’, according to Italian news agency ANSA.

That reasoning ‘is in error,’ Francis said. ‘In consecrated life and priestly life, there is no place for this kind of affection.’
