Catholic News Agency reports:
The U.S. Embassy to the Holy See announced on Tuesday, June 1, that it was displaying the rainbow LGBT “Pride” flag for the month of June, which is celebrated as LGBT “Pride” month.
“The United States respects the dignity and equality of LGBTQI+ people. LGBTQI+ rights are human rights,” the embassy stated on Twitter.
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken earlier this year announced that U.S. embassies and consulates around the world could fly the “Pride” flag on the same flagpole as the American flag, during “Pride season.”
As a Catholic, I’m curious to know if the Biden-Harris Embassy in the Holy See will promote respect for Catholic teaching on family and freedom of conscience – or whether we can simply expect more political stunts like this. https://t.co/SEIM2LO6OM

When procuring drugs for the death penalty you certainly didn’t follow Catholicism.

Remember when the Catholic Churches covered up 1000’s of cases of child molestation from their priests and moved them around allowing them to do it again? Is that an example of freedom conscience?

Your retweet is pure hate for the LGBTQ+ community. This is the reason people still live in fear of expressing who they are. I am in utter disbelief at the lack of respect for basic human rights and equality here.
