Cardinal Hollerich, the archbishop of Luxembourg and president of the EU Bishops’ Commission (COMECE), said that Catholic teaching on the sinfulness of homosexual relations is mistaken and needs to be updated.
"I believe that the sociological-scientific foundation of this teaching is no longer correct,” Hollerich said, while calling for a fundamental revision of the teaching.
The Catholic Church teaches that same-sex attraction is “is objectively disordered.”
“Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered,’” states the Catholic Catechism, adding that under no circumstances “can they be approved.”
“I know that I have homosexuals among my priests,” Hollerich told KNA. “I have homosexual women and men among the laity. And they know they have a home in the Church.”
And then this from Cardinal Elect Roche:
What the Cardinal and Cardinal designate have in common is Biblical, doctrinal and historical amnesia.
They also seem to have in common a neo-gnosticism that what they or someone else believes, if they believe it as hard as can be, makes it true as though they have a direct pipeline from God on the truth not known to others in the Church, like the sensus fidelium (the sense of the faithful (not the unfaithful, btw).
