While speaking to the Associated Press, Francis said that while the Catholic Church views homosexuality as a "sin," being gay is not a "crime.".

Associated Press reports that around 67 countries or jurisdictions around the world criminalize consensual same-sex relationships. . In America, over a dozen states continue to have anti-sodomy laws despite the Supreme Court declaring them unconstitutional in 2003.
