COPENHAGEN, Denmark, June 11, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) The Catholic Bishop of Copenhagen, Czeslaw Kozon, says he is worried that the Catholic Church in Denmark may be forced to perform marriage ceremonies for homosexual couples in the future.
Bishop Czeslaw Kozon of Copenhagen Politicians in Denmark have voted to force churches in the established Evangelical Lutheran Church to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies inside their sanctuaries.
Since 1997, when same-sex marriage was legalized, homosexuals have been able to get married in a blessing ceremony after the normal church service, but now the unions will be part of the service as they are with heterosexual couples. The law takes effect June 15.

Yes, clearly the homosexuals want to force churches to perform homosexual marriages.
In this country, I predict lawsuits will happen, if churches refuse to go along.
The Lutheran Church is the state church, so probably the state has more control over it. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if they attempted to use this to pressure the Catholic Church. At least this bishop seems aware of it.
Gays and government bonding together to destroy Christianity.
Situation today is even worse than in biblical Sodom and Gomorrah where government stayed out of social disputes.
According to the headline, priests are now required to unionize, so if they don’t want to perform same sex marriages, they can go on strike.
Almost all protestant denominations will cave -- if they haven't already -- and many liberal catholics will cave (but they won't be Catholics any more). The true Catholic Church will never comply with orders originating with the devil.
Denmark: Yet another nation caving to tyranny.
I have been saying this since I first came across the sodomite propaganda in the early eighties. If not embracing and accepting homosexuality makes you a bigot, then John Paul II and Billy Graham are bigots; everything else follows.
I never wondered, but thanks for the update. The Catholic Church is the primary target of the Sodomite Agenda, the pursuit of which benefits their anti-American Progressive Communist benefactors.
I’m waiting to see what’s gonna happen when they try to force a mosque to perform a gay marriage.
Yes, it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
**The true Catholic Church will never comply with orders originating with the devil. **
the Catholic church will not marry a hetrosexual couple unless they declare that their sexual relations will take no steps to prevent conception....if either party is incapable of reproducing, a valid marriage is not possible.A homosexual couple, by definition, cannot reproduce.
>> Yes, clearly the homosexuals want to force churches to perform homosexual marriages.
Tolerant, aren’t they?
I wonder which is preceded by the other; the hate for Christianity, the lust for homosexuality.
That is not correct. Women past menopause can validly participate in the Sacrament of Matrimony.
Indeed. And remember by their own logic Jesus would have to be labeled a “bigot” for this statement alone:
‘And He answered and said to them, Have you not read that He who made[a] them at the beginning made them male and female,[b] 5 and said, For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?[c] 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.’

I will never perform a same-sex marriage. The Church will just get out of the civil marriage business. You want to get married in the Catholic Church? Have the Church wedding and then go visit your local justice of the peace or any other authorized person.
