Christians should seek forgiveness from the gay, says Pope
The pontiff also asked the church to apologise to the poor, women and children who have been exploited.
“I think that the Church not only should apologise… to a gay person whom it offended but it must also apologise to the poor as well, to the women who have been exploited, to children who have been forced to work,” said the Pope as quoted by CNN.
The LGBT community has welcomed the comments saying the group has long faced marginalization in the church noting the fact that no pope has ever apologised to the gay before.
