Pope Francis used an offensive gay slang word during a meeting with Italian bishops, where he joked about the number of gay men in seminaries, media reports said Monday. During the private meeting one week ago, the 87-year-old pontiff was reported to have used the derogatory Roman term “frociaggine”, which translates loosely as the offensive English words “faggots” or “poofs”. Francis repeated his opposition to openly gay men joining priest training colleges, and then joked that there were “already too many “‘frociaggine’” in some seminaries.
