"Bishop John Stowe said President Donald Trump, the first sitting president to speak at the annual March for Life in the nation’s capital, 'is so much anti-life.' Stowe also suggested he wants to change Catholic teaching on the family to accommodate homosexuality and gender ideology. Stowe was appointed bishop of Lexington, Kentucky, by Pope Francis in 2015. Taking part in a webinar at the end of July, Stowe said, 'For this president to call himself pro-life, and for anybody to back him because of claims of being pro-life, is almost willful ignorance. He is so much anti-life because he is only concerned about himself, and he gives us every, every, every indication of that.' The webinar was organized by the International Catholic Movement for Intellectual and Cultural Affairs, which says it focuses on 'Democracy, Migration, the Future of the Church, Dialogue and Peace.' Bishop Stowe suggests that for some people, active homosexuality is ‘part of who they are’ Bishop John Stowe also used the webinar to once again push his support for homosexuality and gender ideology, explicitly saying, 'Our understanding of family has to change.' 'We have to be in a different understanding of family, and that’s where the LGBT issues come into play,' he said. 'I agree completely with [another webinar participant] that our credibility is on the line with the whole generation, and more, of young people who just don’t buy that teaching, and know from their experience, and know from the people that they know, that there are good and loving people that happen to identify as LGBT, and that’s part of who they are.'"
