- Pope Francis has spoken on the need for people not to condemn sexual pleasures and food
- The Catholic head said that they are from God; to live a healthy life and enjoy love
- The pope added that frowning on them have caused more harm in the world
Pope Francis has spoken on sex and eating as he called them divine pleasures from God. He made this known in a series of interviews with an Italian writer, Carlo Petrini.
In the interviews that have collected into a book called TerraFutura: Conversation With Pope Francis on Integral Ecology, the Pope said to enjoy those things are not sinful as many church leaders have told their members, New York Post reports.
The Catholic head went further to say that eating is a healthy practice for the body. He said that the same thing can be said for sex as it is a good ingredient to make love beautiful and a means to continuous procreation.
According to the 83-year-old man, laws, and opinions that frown gravely at such pleasures have caused more harm than good and their consequences could be seen around today.
A Catholic critic, Peter Williams, said that he does not see anything bad for a pope to say what Francis said. He added that in tagging those pleasure divine, he is only showing that they are things that come from God.
The author, Petrini, said the book is a robust response from the Pope on the issue of climate change and the need to tackle environmental injustices.
