Pope Francis reportedly told a gay man that God made him gay. Juan Carlos Cruz, who spoke privately with the pope two weeks ago about the abuse he suffered at the hands of one of Chile’s most notorious paedophiles, said the issue of his sexuality had arisen because some of the Latin American country’s bishops had sought to depict him as a pervert as they accused him of lying about the abuse.

“He told me, ‘Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter,'” Cruz said. “‘God made you like this and loves you like this and I don’t care. The pope loves you like this. You have to be happy with who you are.'”
