Trutino said he was left stunned when he then received a phone call from the head of the Catholic Church himself.
“Your homosexuality. It doesn’t matter”, the Pope reportedly told him, according to the local newspaper La Dépêche du Midi.
“It was he who started the conversation,” Trutino said, according to a translation on The Local.
“He said ‘Christopher? It’s Pope Francis’. I was unsettled, of course. I asked, ” Really? ” He replied : “Yes.”
“I received the letter that you sent me. You need to remain courageous and continue to believe and pray and stay good,” the Pope told him during the nine-minute conversation in Spanish.
“Your homosexuality. It doesn’t matter. One way or another , we are all children of God. This is why we must continue to be good,” the Pope told him.
Don’t be gullible and think this is cool. It is not.
This man believes homosexual sex is a sin. He says you are not a sinner for feeling the urge for it, but if your are doing it, you sin.

A brilliant and likeable salesman for a shitty product is still a salesman for a shitty product.
And already the vatican denies the entire thing
