The Minister of Health wants children
Jens Spahn and his husband Daniel Funke want to have children. “I think we would be good parents,” said the minister in the “Bunte” interview.
Jens Spahn (41) and his husband Daniel Funke (40) want children, as the Federal Minister of Health revealed in a “Bunte” interview: “And I think we would be good parents. We talk about it, nothing is concrete yet. But if , then soon, we’re not getting any younger either. ” The couple has been married since 2017.
In addition, Spahn, a devout Catholic, revealed that he does not have to “sit in a church” “to have an inner dialogue with God”. And the CDU politician adds: “My faith is deeply anchored in me. And especially as a gay man I am aware that the Church has made many mistakes in its long history.” He addresses that, “it bothers and annoys me, but that does not lead to my turning away from my faith and the church”.
“It’s time that changed”
Spahn also said in the interview that he does not understand that the Catholic Church is still arguing about the blessing of homosexual couples: “There are priests who bless guinea pigs and motorcycles. But two loving, believing people who want a blessing for their promise to be there for one another for life are rejected by the church. It is time for that to change. “
