Pope Francis has offered an apology for all those that the church has offended.
"I think the church must not only apologize to a gay person, but must apologize to the poor, to women who have been exploited, to children forced into labor," the pope said.
As a Catholic, I whole heartily applaud Pope Francis for coming forward and saying what had to be said. In my opinion, he wants us all to get back to what Jesus taught, and that is to love one another. Would this not be a better world if we did not judge others unfairly?
