Pope Believes In Heterosexual Marriage

Pope is a Catholic Church priest; like any other Catholic priest, he is also one against same-sex marriage or feelings. 

From what he said in one of his speeches, God created everyone with two genders, either male or female. 

Both genders have their respective roles to play in this world. And he believes that the sexuality of people is misleading nowadays.

According to him, condoms won't help the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases like HIV and Aids.

His point was Africa has the highest distribution of condoms and in the same country number of people suffering from AIDS is more. 

He said that people must learn about the dimension of sexuality and involve them spiritually, and only then they stop sexually transmitted diseases.
