Catholics believe, 100%, God loves everyone. Period. It makes no difference whether a person is gay or straight, male or female. God loves us all the way we are! I am very pleased Pope Francis has again reiterated that God loves gay people as much as He loves straight people.
It may be misleading because...
Some are taking the Pope's quoted words to mean that sex outside of traditional marriage is now permitted by the Catholic Church. This is not correct and it equally applies to people who are gay and who are straight.
Hopefully, this is helpful to those trying to figure out what this means.
