Pope Francis sparked controversy after reportedly using derogatory slang "Fag***ry" towards the LGBT community, urging Italian bishops to prevent gay individuals from entering seminaries. Expressing opposition to openly gay men entering priest training, he quipped about the abundance of such individuals in seminaries. Expressing opposition to openly gay men joining priest training colleges, he quipped that there were "already too many 'frociaggine' in some seminaries." The term "frociaggine" roughly translates to "faggots" or "poofs" in English. Some present suggested that the pope may not have realised the term's offensiveness. Despite his prior advocacy for inclusivity, the Vatican has not yet responded to requests for comment on the matter. Vatican Allows Transgender People To Be Baptised Catholic, Serve As Godparents: Report.
