Amoris Laetitia has been released. It is the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation of the Holy Father, Pope Francis. It is a large treatise and a discouraging one to a PFLAG Mom. We are composed of Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. This group has been expanded to include bi-sexuals and transgendered. Our members come from a broad spectrum of religious beliefs. I am Roman Catholic and as such was particularly interested in the results of the synods on the family.
April 8, 2016, Boston, MA. Pope Francis’ long-anticipated response to two sessions of a world-wide Synod on the Family, an Apostolic Exhortation entitled “Amoris Laetitia” (The Joy of Love), is a tremendous disappointment to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Catholics and their families, says DignityUSA, a leading organization of Catholics committed to LGBT equality.
DignityUSA congratulates and thanks the people of Ireland, and especially our fellow Catholics, for their overwhelming vote in favor of marriage equality.
