Roman Catholic bishops will meet at the Vatican beginning Sunday to discuss family issues, and LGBT groups hope to be heard.
The secret meeting in Washington between the antigay Kentucky clerk and the leader of the Roman Catholic Church was carefully planned, says Davis's attorney.
LGBT Catholics are frustrated that Pope Francis refused repeated requests to meet with them, but made time for a secret, closed-door meeting with the antigay Kentucky clerk who is not Catholic.
The pontiff reportedly encouraged the antigay clerk to 'stay strong.' Lawyers for Kim Davis have released a photo of the rosary beads they say Pope Francis gave her.
McNeill spoke out for LGBT equality in the church and the world at large, in defiance of the Catholic hierarchy.
Not only did Lance Sanderson not bring a same-sex date to his school's dance, he didn't even attend. Still, he found himself suspended Monday morning.
Pope Francis continued his vague allusions to LGBT people and issues when he spoke to the United Nations in New York today.
Lance Sanderson says he was first told it was OK to bring another boy to the homecoming dance, then told it wasn't.
The event went off without incident despite some conservatives' dire predictions.
'I will certainly seize the opportunity' to take a stand for LGBT equality, says Mayor Michael Nutter, whose city hosts Pope Francis this weekend.
