Cardinal Rainer Woelki – who has tried to push the Vatican toward more conservative, anti-LGBTQ policies – tried to resign. Pope Francis wouldn’t accept it.
Some call the Pope’s acceptance of civil unions “revolutionary.” But his words far from absolve Francis and the Catholic Church from continuously restraining the human and civil rights of LGBTQ people.
Someone allegedly sent a copy of his marriage certificate to the Archdiocese. The teacher had worked there for decades.
