via Crux:

“Sexual pleasure is there to make love more beautiful and to guarantee the perpetuation of the species,” the pope said. Prudish views of sex taken to an extreme “have caused enormous harm, which can still be felt strongly today in some cases,” he added.

Francis denounced what he called a “bigoted morality” that “doesn’t make sense” and amounts to a “bad interpretation of the Christian message.”

“The pleasure of eating, like sexual pleasure, comes from God,” he said.
