The Church has “demonstrated they remain out of touch with the flock”

Catholics around the world have been asking their leaders to reform and modernize the Church. Andre Banks, co-founder of All Out said, “Sadly, with the election of Jorge Begoglio the Church has demonstrated they remain out of touch with the flock. LGBT people and our allies are not likely to find a friend in Pope Francis I.”

Banks said LGBT-friendly Catholics “are going to have to push even harder now that their leaders have shown they are not listening to their call to include LGBT people as full and open members of the church.”

The All Out organization wants to “to build a world in which everyone can live freely and be embraced for who they are.”
