The Catholic church on Monday, decreed that priests and other Catholic Church ministers cannot bless same-sex unions, as God “does not bless sin”, dashing the hopes of gay Catholics who believed Pope Francis might have created a more open environment.
The Vatican stated that such blessings are “not licit” if carried out.
The latest decision of the church is generating mixed reactions on twitter.
See some of the reactions below:
The Vatican says catholic priests will never bless Gay union/marriage because it’s a sin & the LGBTQ people are livid.
Isn’t it obvious these people are abnormal?
Even the Catholic Church knows being Gay is a decision and a very Negat*ve one for that matter. 1/

If you are or were Catholic and LGBTQ+, know that there is a whole world that believes you are more than good enough,& your life means every bit as much as anyone else's. You matter, you belong, and we need you here. 💙🌈 That's what agape, or UNCONDITIONAL "God" love really is.

Normalize the knowledge that LGBTQ+ people are beautiful and it is not a sin to be LGBTQ+ – us being LGBTQ+ is a gift.🦄💖🔥🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️

Friendly reminder that it's ok to leave your church if they do not meet your moral standards of inclusion and love. Don't be distracted by "all are welcome" and "God loves everyone" statements. At their core, most reject LGBTQ folks and don't have the balls to say it directly.

Dear African warriors, just like catholic can't bless same sex marriage, say no to Gay and Lesbianism.
Even LGBTQ community members are products of able men and women unions

They said Jesus would have accepted LGBTQ into the fold.
Na lie, He would have used koboko to chase you guys out of the temple. His Father’s house is a holy ground as it should be. ✌️

Another perspective in the stand of the church on not blessing LGBTQ+ unions. Does this make sense to you? pic.twitter.com/F7JCdf5RzI

I argued in support of the LGBTQ and a few people sent me a dm… I'm flattered but I'm straight, I just think humans who just want to be given the opportunity to love each other be left alone to do what they want

you cannot blame catholics for the non support of LGBTQ. it clearly states that it is a sin. like charges repel and unlike charges attract. that has always been a law of nature and we really can’t blame the pope. but i have nothing against them

LGBTQ basing their debate about acceptance on love and even citing examples from the Bible is quite laughable.
Don't be decieved Jesus loved sinners not sin. You can't be dragging the Christian body because they refuse to bless sin 😂.

The LGBTQ community made an alliance out of necessity with the Church. Yet each must be true to their vows. Now unfortunately, it is time for politics and compromise.

The reason leftists are not going after Islam on LGBTQ is because they already know they will met with strong opposition. Understand this, leftists true power comes from your cowardice, once you don't cave in then all they can do is whine on the internet

You can’t say you are a Christian, you love Jesus Christ and still propagate homosexuality #LGBTQ 2 cor 6:15 CEV

No matter how LGBTQ fight to be accepted and blessed in union by the catholic, it can never happen… They should deal with it.
We can never legalize gay in our society, to avoid being raped by a fellow man/woman. 🤮
