Here's The Meaning Behind This Hand Sign Made By Pope Francis And Cardinal Tagle

In the aftermath of the release of a crucial documentary in which Pope Francis expressed his thoughts on same sex relationships and the church, there has been a rise in attacks on the Pope and the Catholic Church by some people who didn't understand what the Pope meant.

In plain language, the Pope said that he backs all civil unions and that he finds no reason why same sex couples shouldn't be allowed to enter houses of worship or worship the same God as everyone else.

Unfortunately, some people couldn't grasp his message and have been throwing insults at him and the church with some circulating the photo below with some unprintable captions.

It's because of this that I felt the urge to inform the public a brief story of what was happening when Pope Francis made that hand sign and what he meant.

The photo was taken in January 2015 in Manila when Pope Francis had visited Philippines.

Standing next to him was Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle and together they raised their index and pinkie fingers, keeping their third and fourth fingers down while extending the thumb.

The hand sign was a communication to the deaf and the message was that "I love you."

This is because in sign languages that hand sign is an expression of love and shouldn't be confused with the sign of horns.
