Catholics React To Vatican Ban On Clergy Blessing Same-Sex Marriages. NPR's A Martinez talks to Jamie Manson, president of Catholics for Choice, and a member of the LGBTQ community, about Pope Francis' statement that Catholic clergy can't bless same-sex relationships.


LGBTQ Catholics won't have priests blessing their same-sex marriages. The Vatican called on Catholics to welcome and respect LGBTQ people. However, it said in a statement approved by Pope Francis that Catholic clergy cannot bless same-sex unions, writing that God, quote, "cannot bless sin." Jamie Manson is the president of the nonprofit Catholics for Choice and is a member of the LGBTQ community. Jamie, what was your reaction when you heard the Vatican's statement?

JAMIE MANSON: Good morning, A. Well, obviously, it was a profound disappointment. This gives a sense that our love is inferior, that we cannot - that our love is not blessed by God. So it's profoundly painful.
