Germany: defying the Vatican, Catholic priests bless homosexual couples

The initiative dubbed "love wins out" was taken by around 100 priests in response to a memo from the Church calling homosexuality a "sin."


more than a hundred Catholic priests have blessed the marriage of same-sex couples in Germany, mainly in the northwest of the country, openly defying the Vatican.

Baptized “love wins”, this initiative is a direct reaction to a note published in mid-March by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, qualifying homosexuality as “sin” and confirming the impossibility for couples to same sex to receive the sacrament of marriage.
