I couldn't agree more.
Praise God - apparently the Holy Father doesn't believe in punishing the children for the sins of their parents.
Rome (AFP) - Pope Francis has called for a rethink in the way the Catholic Church deals with the children of gay couples and divorced parents, warning against "administering a vaccine against faith".
"On an educational level, gay unions raise challenges for us today which for us are sometimes difficult to understand," Francis said in a speech to the Catholic Union of Superiors General in November, extracts of which were published on Italian media websites on Saturday.
"The number of children in schools whose parents have separated is very high," he said, adding that family make-ups were also changing.
"I remember a case in which a sad little girl confessed to her teacher: 'my mother's girlfriend (fidanzata) doesn't love me'," he was quoted as saying.
The pontiff said educational leaders should ask themselves "how can we proclaim Christ to a generation that is changing?"
"We must be careful not to administer a vaccine against faith to them," the 77-year-old added. - Source
As a child of a divorced and remarried Catholic mother, I was able to attend Catholic school. If that had not been possible I doubt I would be Catholic today. I wasn't treated the best, but I was taught the faith and received the sacraments.
If the Holy Father gets his way, perhaps now children of gay parents will not be kicked out of Catholic school.
I often think of Bl. Laura Vicuna when I remember little children of irregular marriages or relationships. Her mother had been the mistress of an abusive man, who beat the little girl so badly once when she was ill, she died. She was educated by Salesian nuns. Perhaps the Argentine mentality understands the importance of the education of children better than Catholics in the United States.
