'It is inhumane to disregard gay people' - Pope Francis

Pope Francis has surprised many following his stance on homophobes,

According to the pope, he finds those who discard gay people as not being ones with human hearts.

British comedian Stephen K. Amos, was moved to tears, by the words of the Pope. The pope also asked Stephen and other visiting celebrities to continue to pray for him so he could do a better job.

BBC2 series Pilgrimage: The Road To Rome, will see Stephen, 51, amongst others meet with the Pope in Rome.

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.”

The replied saying;

“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.”

“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 in tears now, 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. “He’s saying those who hold extreme religious views of anti-homosexuality or anti-abortion don’t have a human heart and that is huge.”
