Adam Rippon says the Pope’s message of love to a gay man was awesome


Juan Carlos Cruz, a survivor of sexual abuse by a prominent Chilean priest, spoke with the Pope earlier this month about his experience. The Pope responded that if God created him this way, then God needs and loves him this way, so he should be happy about being who he is. Adam Rippon, the Olympic figure skater and the first openly gay “Dancing with the stars’ winner, found no other words to describe these comments rather than ‘awesome’. Now, speaking to TMZ Sports, Rippon has praised Pope Francis. “I think that’s so awesome what the Pope said,” Rippon said, noting that if the Pope does not mind he would love to meet him one day. The star recently revealed that he is moving in with his boyfriend Finnish-born realtor Jussi-Pekka Kajaala. When asked about what would happen when his boyfriend arrived, the 28-year-old figure skater said without hesitation that they would move together.
