Pope Francis surely raised many eyebrows after recently saying that gay people should not be not be judged or marginalized.
According to Yahoo! News, this statement is perhaps the most conciliatory statement from any pontiff with regards to the LGBT community.
The 76-year-old leader of the Roman Catholic Church made this candid statement to journalists during a plane ride back to Rome from a visit to Brazil.
In an 80-minute conversation with reporters, the first pontiff elected from Latin America (as well as the first Jesuit) also said that gays should be integrated into society.
