Holy Crap

Pope Francis suggests he’s open to civil unions for gay and lesbian couples.

Not that the Pope hasn’t given us some forewarning. He’s not endorsing it exactly. And he’s making clear that it’s not marriage, which is between a man and a woman. But, c’mon, the Catholic Church drives a pretty hard line in some cases about when opposite sex couples can get married (i.e., post divorce). So this is a pretty big deal.
