Pope's apology to gays is moving, but is it moving the Catholic Church?

From Seattle-

Pope Francis delivers surprises in his airborne news conferences, never more than Sunday when he argued that Catholics and other Christians must apologize to gay people and others for committing offenses and causing hurts.

Moved by a question referencing Orlando, Francis declared:  "The church must say it's sorry for not having comported itself well many times, many times."

He then turned first to a group long shunned by the Catholic hierarchy:  "I believe that the church not only must say it's sorry  . . . to this person who is gay that has been offended," he said, "but it must say it's sorry to the poor, also to mistreated women, to children forced to work."
