Pope Francis is known as one of the most progressive popes, but he apparently has his limits.
The Vatican published some closed-door remarks from the pope where he touched on gender identity. Francis said he was dismayed by the growing acceptance of transgender people, calling it "terrible."
He said, in part, "Today, in schools they are teaching this to children — to children! — that everyone can choose their gender."
