After meeting privately with abuse victims on Saturday on the first papal visit to Ireland in nearly four decades, the Pope apologised to mothers estranged from their children in church-run homes, children abused by priests and those exploited in religious schools, calling it a "state of shame".
That's right. The Pope seemingly endorsed notorious "ex-gay therapy", a form of psychological torture banned in parts of the United States, by implying that being gay is a psychological problem.

Pope Francis vowed to pursue justice for victims of church abuse during his two-day trip to the country and has pledged to study an official memo about the property.
Vigano, the papal ambassador in Washington from 2011 to 2016, said he had informed top Vatican officials as early as 2006 that McCarrick was suspected of abusing adult seminarians while he was a bishop in two New Jersey dioceses between 1981 and 2001.
An investigation was launched after a man claimed he was sexually abused by McCarrick when he was 11 years old.
When they published a transcript of his back and forth with reporters, they deliberately cut out his reference to psychiatry.
"I won't say a word about it", the pope said.

West Ham also started the Premier League season with two back-to-back losses to Liverpool and Bournemouth. "It was a hard match. He feels better today and before the match he was with me", Emery said.
He called on the journalists to "draw [their] own conclusions".
Cupich, who said he heard about the letter Sunday morning after returning from Ireland, said he fully supports the pope.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, a former Vatican envoy to the United States, on Saturday said he had told Francis of the allegations against prominent U.S. cardinal Theodore McCarrick in 2013.
"We ask forgiveness for those members of the hierarchy who didn't take responsibility for this painful situation, and who kept silence", Francis said.
He also alleged that several US prelates were aware or should have known about then-Cardinal McCarrick's behavior, including retired Bishop Paul Bootkoski of Metuchen; retired Archbishop John J. Myers of Newark; Cardinal Kevin J. Farrell, head of the Vatican office for laity and family and former auxiliary bishop of Washington, D.C., and Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley of Boston, president of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors. Wuerl has said he did not know of them.
Mr Vigano alleges that the Pope replied: "Holy Father, I don't know if you know Cardinal McCarrick, but if you ask the Congregation of Bishops, there is a dossier this thick about him".
The pope's trip to Ireland was fraught with controversy amid accusations that he ignored sexual abuse allegations against prominent United States cardinal Theodore McCarrick. He has been accused of "gravely immoral" behavior with seminarians and priests.
Vigano's statement railed against "homosexual networks present in the Church" - the word "homosexual" appears 18 times, while the word "child" appears only twice, in both cases in the titles of Church documents Vigano cites.
In an unusually blunt letter released by the Vatican last week, the Pope directly referred to the Pennsylvania report and acknowledged the Catholic Church's failure to act, adding "we showed no care for the little ones; we abandoned them". On Saturday, he said the corruption and cover-up of abuse amounted to human excrement, according to victims.
