Pope Francis recently called for a rethink in the way the Catholic Church deals with the children of gay couples, warning against "administering a vaccine against faith". "On an educational level, gay unions raise challenges for us today which are sometimes difficult to understand," Francis said. Though the Church has often been in conflict with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community over its opposition to same-sex marriage and to homosexuality, Francis has drawn praise for attempts to be inclusive. You may have read that in July he reached out to gays, declaring that "if someone is gay and seeks the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?"
