In a shift, Pope Francis has voiced his support for same-sex civil unions in a documentary that debuted in Rome today, October 21, 2020.

 

Speaking about pastoral outreach and care for people who identify as LGBTQ, the pontiff said that he thinks same-sex couples should be allowed to have “civil unions”.

 

His comments in the documentary directed by Evgeny Afineevsky has been described by observers as his clearest remarks yet on gay relationships.

“Homosexual people have a right to be in a family,” Pope Francis said in the documentary.

 

“They are children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or made miserable over it.

 

“What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered.”

 

He added that he “stood up for that”, apparently referring to his time as Archbishop of Buenos Aires when, although opposing same-sex marriages in law, he supported some legal protections for same-sex couples.

Senate minority leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe has stated that the only person from south-east in Aso Villa is a photographer.

 

Abaribe said this when he featured on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme. The Senator who described Governor David Umahi’s defection as a mere occurrence which will be evaluated properly during the next presidential election, stressed the need for back channels in government which according to him is the reason for the relevance of Mamman Daura, Buhari’s nephew in the present administration.

“Before, every part of this country was represented in the Aso Villa, so when you want to do government business because sometimes government business is done from back channels, so if you have a problem or they want to do some consultations, you make a call into the Villa, you call to your countryman and say please, can you tell oga this or that so that we can have this talk, there is none today inside the villa. There’s one guy, his name is Sunny, I think he’s a photographer.

“So, Umahi is going to talk to who? Ok, because he is governor, he can talk to chief of staff, he can go to see the president but what about others?”
