Cardinal says gay couples shouldn’t be invited to family gatherings

Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, one of the highest ranking officials on Church Law, said the church never recognize same-sex marriage will Cardinal Burke tells us homosexual relationships are wrong and evil.

A more recent comment from Burke, aged 66, came last year where he said that homosexuals, remarried Catholics and murderers were the same.

He also claimed the church was too feminised:

The cardinal also blamed gay clergy for the church’s sexual abuse crisis, saying priests “who were feminized and confused about their own sexual identity” were the ones who molested children.

In September he claimed marriage was under attack by secular society and by forces within the church.

Any marriage that is not “exclusive, permanent, and open to life,” according to Burke, “is not a true marriage.”

It seems the church is still mostly out of touch with reality despite the efforts of the new Pope. I’m not expecting change.
