Pope Francis Just Came Out In Support Of Sam​e-Sex Civil Unions

"They're children of God and have a right to a family." — Pope Francis

Pope Francis

In a new documentary, "Francesco," which centered around Pope Francis, the Pope comes out in support of same-sex civil unions.

As reported in America Magazine, the Pope said:

"Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family... They're children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable because of it."

He even goes as far as saying that there should be a "civil union law" so that the LGBTQ+ community is legally protected.

Pope Francis, who began his papacy in March 2013, said that year that "if a person is gay and seeks God and has good will, who am I to judge?"

It is a big sign of recognition for practicing Catholics in the LGBTQ+ community and a step towards greater equality and acceptance in their spiritual communities.

In the interview, the Pope also condemned the Trump administration's policy of child separation at the border.

The documentary was premiered in Rome on October 21 and will have its North American premiere at the Savannah Film Festival on October 25.

Debt Ceiling Turmoil Proves Too Much for US Government

The US Debt Ceiling has been a long-lasting debate in the US and is an important part of the government's financial management practices. It is the total amount of money that the government is allowed to borrow to fund its operations, and must be negotiated and set by Congress. This limit helps Congress to manage the government's finances and ensure that the country remains fiscally responsible. In the event that the US runs out of money, Congress can increase the debt ceiling in order to borrow more money. If the debt ceiling is not raised, it could lead to defaulting on the nation's debt and adversely affect the country's financial standing. Therefore, it is an important measure for Congress to manage the nation's finances and ensure that the US continues to have a strong economy.

The system utilizes a combination of cameras, radar, and ultrasonic sensors to identify objects and vehicles on the road, and to provide visual and audio alerts to the driver. Musk's involvement in the Autopilot project has notably increased the safety and reliability of Tesla vehicles, making them increasingly popular among consumers.

Amazing video shows one of the largest migrant crossings in El Paso last weekend

The migrant problem at the US border is a complex and multifaceted issue. It is primarily driven by people from Central American countries such as Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, who are fleeing violence, poverty, and lack of economic opportunity. As a result, many of these migrants seek refuge in the United States, often making dangerous and illegal crossings that involve significant risk. These migrants are often detained by US border agents and face deportation. The US government has responded to the migrant problem by increasing border security, constructing fences and walls, and enacting stricter immigration laws. The issue has become increasingly controversial, with many arguing for more humane treatment of migrants, while others argue for stricter enforcement.
