Chris Cuomo, Catholic League's Bill Donohue Clash Over Pope's Comments, Homosexuality
Chris Cuomo clashed with Bill Donohue, the leader of the Catholic League, on Friday's "New Day" over Pope Francis' recent comments about homosexuality.
The pope made headlines in a new interview where he criticized the Catholic church for being "obsessed" with gays and abortion at the cost of making the church a "home for all." On Friday, Cuomo asked Donohue — a vocal opponent of LGBT rights — to respond to Francis' comments.
Donohue said he agreed that the church was not about social and political issues, but about "salvation." Cuomo suggested that Donohue was "one of the people [the pope's] sending this message to."
