God doesn't reject gays says Pope

God is loving father, does not deny anyone says Francis

(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 20 - God doesn't reject gays or any of his other children, Pope Francis says in a book out next week, sources said Friday.
    The statement is an echo of his famous response to a question on gay Catholics shortly after he became pope in 2013: "Who am I to judge.
    "God is the Father and does not deny any of his children. And God's style is closeness, mercy and tenderness. Not judgement and marginalisation," the Argentine pontiff talking about gay people in the book 'Fear as a gift' (with Salvo Noé, Edizioni San Paolo), out next week.
    "God draws near with love to each and every one of his children.
    His heart is open to each and every one. He is Father. Love does not divide, but unites".
    Catholic Church dogma teaches that homosexuality is a disorder and only chaste LGBTQI+ people do not sin. (ANSA).
