Drivel from an Ignorant Cardinal

Cardinal Danneels not opposed to gay marriage


Next Tuesday Cardinal  Godfried Danneels will turn 80. In the interview he granted us, he expressed himself notably about homosexual marriage which has been making headlines across France in recent days.

He says to obey the law and not oppose gay marriage. “We need to understand: The Church has never objected to the fact that there is a sort of ‘marriage’ between homosexuals – however  we’re talking about a sort of marriage. This is not the same as the true marriage between a man and a woman, so we need to find another word for the dictionary. However, insofar as it is legal – that it has been rendered legitimate by law – the Church has nothing to say about it. (…) If a state opens civil marriage to homosexuals, then it the problem of that state.

 This is the first cardinal to express himself so candidly about gay marriage.


Here is more cause for great concern.

Are we going to be militant opponents of these defalcations? Or are we just going to complain and then let them ride?

If the former, I should like to be excused. If the latter, I could help with the follow through needed to combat the anti-catholicism that gives rise to these internal apostacies.

This “Cardinal” ought be questioned on whether he cleared his remarks with the Vatican, and if so, with whom? –Judge Bartley
