Catholic Church scraps plans to ‘welcome homosexuals’ (Like We Didn't See That Coming)
Bishops are currently holding an ‘extraordinary synod’ to consider the church’s future approach to families values, amid fears that it has become out of touch with modern Catholics.
In a second draft, watered down to appease more conservative bishops, the section originally titled “welcoming homosexuals was re-titled “providing for homosexual persons”, and the overall tone of the document became less accepting.
However, even with the changes, the proposal today failed to pass through the synod with a two-thirds majority, and were stripped from the final report – meaning that the Church will maintain its current policy.
According to AP, the measure was overwhelmingly rejected, by a vote of 118-62.
Current Catholic doctrine teaches that homosexuality is ‘intrinsically disordered’.
Another landmark reform – allowing divorced and remarried Catholics to receive communion – was also rejected, while there will be no changes to most substantial policy matters.
So basically, they accomplished absolutely nothing and just reaffirmed they are and will continue to be a hate group.
