Around one hundred German Catholic priests are blessing same-sex unions at services in about 100 parishes around the country this week.
One of the priests, Rev. Jan Korditschke, a Jesuit, “will lead blessings for queer couples at a worship service May 16,” according to The Associated Press.
“I am convinced that homosexual orientation is not bad, nor is homosexual love a sin,” Korditschke told The AP. “I want to celebrate the love of homosexuals with these blessings because the love of homosexuals is something good.”
The defiant and illegitimate blessings come after the Vatican reiterated its position in March that the Catholic Church cannot bless same-sex unions because God “cannot bless sin.” From The Daily Citizen.
