Pamela Dickey Young, Professor in the School of Religion at Queen’s University joins us for this segment.  Young discusses Pope Francis’ watershed endorsement on same-sex civil unions, an endorsement that emerged on October 21 2020 in the debut of Evgeny Afineevsky’s documentary Francesco at the Rome Film Festival. Young fills in details about official teachings of the Catholic Church related to same same sex unions, the views of more conservative Catholics, and how the endorsement is a huge step forward for LGBTQI+ Catholics, but still falls short of official recognition of the diversity of loving relationships within the Catholic Church.
