In a groundbreaking statement about homosexuality, Pope Francis says Christians and the Catholic Church should seek forgiveness from gay people and others they have offended or treated poorly in the past.

“I repeat what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says: that they must not be discriminated against, that they must be respected and accompanied pastorally,” the pope told reporters Sunday aboard the papal plane returning from Armenia to Rome.

In 2013, Francis reaffirmed the Catholic Church’s position on homosexuality, saying that homosexual acts were sinful but not homosexual orientation.
