The CEO of the Kenya Film Classifications Board (KFCB), known as the country’s “moral policeman”, has insisted that Pope Francis must have been misquoted when spoke out in support of gay couples. The 83-year-old Pope Francis made a major break from Catholic teachings in an interview for the documentary Francesco, which premiered on Wednesday (21 October). The pontiff said: “Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it.” He added: “What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered. I stood up for that.” The comments made by the Pope were both celebrated and attacked around the world, but now Ezekiel Mutua, the anti-LGBT+ “moral policeman” in Kenya, has questioned whether they happened at all.
