Pope Francis teaches or changes teachings through gestures, ambiguities and confusion and also relying on what others say he said. He values Jesuitical discernment which can also be viewed in some cases as enablement. I don't particularly like this method but it is what it is.
Thus one of the Chilean victims of a priest's homosexual abuse of him has said that he himself is gay and that Pope Francis told him God made him that way. I'm not so sure the pope said this as the pope is silent on this subject, but many gay people I know are quite good people, sinners though we all are. Goodness is of God and God given as we are made in the image and likeness of God though corrupted by Adam's sin but redeemed in the new Adam!
I do know that Pope Francis has explicitly written that the clergy sexual abuse of minors in the Church is a result of homosexual predation. If girls had been involved His Holiness would have said that it was a result of heterosexual predation.
Original sin which every human being inherits (except the Mother of the Church, the Blessed Mother Most Holy) means that each and everyone of us is defective in some way or another and programmed by this defect to die and decay and return to the dust of the earth. We can't change that try as some may. Some resort to Botox and plastic surgery which makes everyone look like others with the same procedures look alike and perversions of their previous beauty.
Some people have defects that they have no control over, such as Down's syndrome, other mental and physical retardations and mental and physical disfigurement.
Disordered (by way of Original sin which is inherited) sexuality is programmed towards concupisence. Fidelity doesn't come naturally nor does chasity be one married or single. God's abundant grace is required. Sexual continence requires God's grace and our willingness to cooperate with that grace and when we fail, try as we may with God's grace to succeed, God has given us the Sacrament of Penance to place us back on the narrow path to salvation.
Thus a person who is straight but desires to be as promiscuous as possible needs God's grace to lead him or her to chasity. God made us to be chaste not promiscuous. Promiscuity is a disorder.
Thus a person who is "bi" must, by God's grace, choose chastity or seek a heterosexual spouse and natural marriage.
Thus a person who is gay must by God's grace seek to live life long chastity.
It isn't the Church's role to determine what makes someone gay as there are a number of possibilities all of which include Original sin in one way or another and not to exclude a genetic reason caused by the disorders of Original Sin.
God brings goodness out of disorders though . Thus we love those who have Down's syndrome, are autistic, mentally or physically handicapped and we assist them to live "normal" lives.
The same is true of those with sexual disorders, we love them and help them to live "normal" lives and to make use of the God-given gifts of grace that God gives us in abundance.
But let's not single out any particular sexual orientation for vilification. We only vilify actual crimes not a tendency toward them. If a person has a tendency towards being a thief, we applaud them when they live a life of honesty and show others with an inclination to steal how not to do so.
Did Pope Franics say being gay is God-given? I don't know, I hope not. It is second hand information. Does Pope Francis love gay people? I hope so and I hope we all do.
Does being gay have good qualities apart from disordered sexual activities that one can with God's grace overcome which includes frequent Confession for any habitual sins? Yes and this goodness is God-given! We are made by God to be good!
But when gay people seek pastoral counseling and the Sacrament of Penance, sometimes chasity can only be sought incrementally and stable, chaste friendships should always be the goal even if there is a partnership with a lifelong partner that should lead anyone, straight or gay, away from destructive promiscuity and using others simply for one's own gratification. Love that leads to chastity is the goal of spiritual counseling. God made us for chaste love.
