Earlier today, Francis addressed the Conference of Rectors of German Language Seminaries, gathered in Rome.
The conference is taking place in the shadow of comments made by Cardinal Reinhard Marx, President of the German Bishops Conference, suggesting the possibility of blessing homosexual unions.
Those unfamiliar with this story would do well to read Maike Hickson, whose English language reporting on the activities of the Church in Germany is unparalleled.
As most readers likely recall, in a recent interview, Cardinal Marx said:
This [decision to confer a blessing on homosexual couples] I really must leave up to the local pastor and the accompaniment of that person.
He went on to say that there cannot be any general rules on the matter.

What will Francis do next?
A full black mass in St. Peters?
Francis is a heretic (in the medieval sense of the term and for the appropriate punishment) IMO
Oh good! now Priests can marry each other, and yes have all the children they want. those are call choir and/or alter boys.
The Pope is now writing his own bible. the current one is just too old fashioned.
To all you good Catholics out there. There are good Christian churches out there that will welcome you with open arms. Choose wisely
Reading Eric Metaxas’s biography of Martin Luther - nothing surprises me anymore coming out of Babylon/Vatican....
Catholics should revolt against the communist pope! Im Catholic and have no use for him! Does he suggest priests marrying priests is ok? Like I said. Ive got no use for this pope!
Where is the Spanish Inquisition when you need it?
I don’t see any new quote from Francis in the article, just Cardinal Marx.
The Church as we new it before this ignoramus Pope is now gone unless something shocking happens. I don’t think the Homosexual agenda will be put back in the box even when this Pope turd exits.
That’s super, Poop Frank.
Your destruction of the church is basically complete.
Prophecy about the destroyer
This Pope is so off base it defies anything I could believe possible. He is taking the Church down a very dark path.
Seems to me the Pope is building his own theology.
More like the Conference of Rectums.
Then the Vatican should vocally correct the wayward Cardinal. Waiting...
Maybe hell enter in to a homosexual union...
“The conference is taking place in the shadow of comments made by Cardinal Reinhard Marx, President of the German Bishops Conference, suggesting the possibility of blessing homosexual unions.”
He’s addressing a conference in the shadow of comments. Louie from akaCatholic has never steered me wrong.
Yes they should, but meanwhile the headline should report the facts correctly rather than editorialing as if Cardinal Marx were Pope Francis.
No, thank you, this Catholic already has a Church. At the moment, its leadership has been highjacked, but this, too, shall pass. Christ promised us.
What did he actually say in his address is what I'm wondering. I'll be interested to see what Raymond Arroyo has to say about this story.
if he hasn’t done so already
