Vatican Remove Remarks About Psychiatry, Gay Children

VATICAN REMOVES POPE'S REMARKS ABOUT PSYCHIATRY AND GAY CHILDREN IN OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT

(CNN) – The Vatican has removed a section from the transcript of Pope Francis’ Sunday remarks on the topic of gay children.

The pontiff was asked what he would say to a father who’s child is gay.

The Pope suggested prayer and said parents should not condemn gay children.

However, he also said that psychiatry might have a role to play.

The reference to psychiatry was removed from the official transcript.

A Vatican spokeswoman said the pope did not mean to suggest that homosexuality is a mental illness.

She said the Vatican took the remark out of the transcript to avoid that inference.
