It signaled a change of tone, and what seems to be the first use of the word “gay” by a Pope.

It is misleading to pretend that nothing was done and all this was made up.

In June, Pope Francis warned of a corrupt gay lobby in the Church, so how could it be the first time he said it?

Why don't you just say the Pope infallibly declared the gays are better than heterosexuals?

It did not “signal a change of tone.” This has been the policy since forever.

Furthermore, the term “gay” was used because there has been a lot of publicity recently about the “gay mafia” in the Vatican. Would you rather he didn’t take this on?
