Pope Francis emphasizes that traditional marriage is an example of God's love
At his general audience in the Varican on April 2, Pope Francis stressed the importance of traditional marriage. He said: "When a man and a woman celebrate the sacrament of marriage, God is reflected in them (...) As 'one flesh', they become living icons od God's love in our world, building up the Church in unity and fidelity". This statements come after the 'controversial' comments the Pontiff made about gays back in 2013. What the pope really meaned with his commentaries on gays was just to show compassion to them as they are sinners just like everyone else. But, as always, the media distorts the message in order for him to sound like a gay activist. He also recognized the many difficulties and trials married couples encounter nowadays. He said that in order to overcome them we just need a little gesture of love and peace like a caress, then forgive and move on.
