German Catholic Priests defy Rome and bless gay couples


From the New York times on 05/10/21

BERLIN — More than 100 Roman Catholic parishes in Germany offered blessings to gay couples on Monday in defiance of church teaching and their own bishops.

The call for nationwide blessings came in response to a decree issued by the Vatican on March 15, reinforcing the church’s prohibition of priests asking for God’s benevolence for gay couples, stating that God “does not and cannot bless sin.”

Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. It is great to see the German Catholic Church grow and embrace its gay brothers and sisters and afford the them the same dignity and respect as heterosexual people. It takes a degree of maturity and a higher level of consciousness to embrace all people regardless of their sexual orientation.
