Pope Francis apologizes for using vulgar term about homosexual priests

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis apologized Tuesday after he was quoted using a vulgar term to reaffirm the Catholic Church’s ban on gay priests.

The Vatican spokesman, Matteo Bruniissued a statement acknowledging the media storm that erupted around Francis’ comments, made behind closed doors with Italian bishops on May 20.

On Monday, the press published that anonymous Italian bishops reported that Francis said in Italian that there is already too much “faggot” (frociaggine), to reaffirm the Vatican’s ban on allowing gay men to be seminarians and ordained priests.

Bruni said Francis is aware of the reports and recalled that the Argentine pope — who has made outreach to LGBTQ+ Catholics a hallmark of his papacy — has long insisted that “there is room for everyone” in the Catholic Church.
