DUBLIN — Newly elected Pope Francis may be staunchly conservative on many social issues, but the same can’t be said for some older, devout Catholics in Dublin.
Margaret Devlin, 62, celebrates Mass at her local church daily. She’s excited about a change in Vatican leadership, but disagrees with the new pope’s stance against gay marriage.
“If you’re gay, you’re gay,” Devlin said. “I think they have a right to be happy with a partner."
