Skip to comments."Majority" of Catholics call for change on LGBT issues

A majority of Catholics want the Church to reconsider its teaching on LGBT issues, a new poll launched in Rome yesterday has revealed.
A total of 9,606 people were surveyed across Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, United States, Philippines, France, Italy and Spain for the poll, representing half of the world's Catholic population.
The survey was carried out by Yougov on behalf of Equal Future 2018, a coalition of LGBT, progressive Catholic religious, children and young peoples' groups.
Campaign director Tiernan Brady, who led the marriage equality campaign in Ireland in 2015, launched the findings in Rome. He described the survey findings as "a clarion call to the hierarchy of the Catholic Church from its members that it is time to change their approach to LGBT people" which is "damaging to children and young people".
Highlighting how ordinary people in the pews "are leading the way on LGBT issues", he said it was "time the upper management caught up with their flock".

Ignore the holy scriptures & thousands of years of civilization to go for a freakish fad.
Looks like a subscription link to something called Pressreader. Have a better link?
At least 4704 ‘Christian’s who think they are God.
The reason I don’t use this one is because Freerepublic doesn’t take articles from the Irish Independent for some reason.
Are these the same pollsters that said that hillary clinton had a 95% chance of winning the 2016 election?
Thanks. But, the new link doesn’t say what the suggested changes are, although I can guess.
Let me correct it:
A majority of Catholics want
the Church God to reconsider its His teaching on LGBT issues, a new poll launched in Rome yesterday has revealed.
God made his opinion known when he designed human beings.
Hmmm..they are suggesting God,the Creator, made a mistake?
We have clearly seen the encouragement of henious acts of homosexual orgies from thexleadership. Not your neighbor catholic.. but from the ruling class of catholisicm.
Yeah, i would say they have proliferated homosexuality and lewdness exponentially.
How can we help out neighbirhood catholics fight this evil?
Yeah, cause Christianity has always been about majority rule and public opinion.
Can you ever imagine that a Church would be asked by the members to rewrite the Bible?
That’s because most of these “Christians” or “Catholics” consider their religions kinda’ like clubs where they can change the rules when it suits their fancy.
I can’t imagine that they think of themselves to be that important that God must change His scripture to suit their perversions. Incredible.
To anyone unfamiliar...the Irish Independent is Ireland’s NY Times,Amazon Post and MSLSD all rolled up into one.
The Church has become saturated with homosexuals and they are now becoming blatant in their cause. For the church to return to the faith of our fathers they must cleanse the church.
There is only One who matters.
Yeah because letting Homos into the Priesthood worked out well. Sodomy is a sin that CRIES OUT TO HEAVEN. You can’t really pussyfoot around that. I suggest these “catholics” go join some unitarian church or whatever “””church”” has a rainbow flag in front of it.
FKG HORSE SH*T!
