I can just hear Adam saying to Eve, listen to the talking serpent, eat that forbidden fruit, it’s no big deal!
And progressive Catholics today quip, “Was it so scandalous?”
I am sure Pope Francis will initiate an apostolic visitation of this good bishop.

Bishop Adriano Ciocca Vasino defended the actions of a fellow Brazilian bishop who recently gave Communion to a Muslim leader.
But responding to the archbishop’s comments, respected theologian and author Dr. Peter Kwasniewski argued that Steinmetz was evidencing the Church being “in the worst crisis of her history.” “We have never seen something like this before,” wrote Kwasniewski. “Even at the worst times, no priest or bishop would have dared to give the Body of the Lord to an unbaptized pagan or infidel.”
He warned that citing Pope Francis’ writings, even if a false reference, demonstrated the “ripple effects” of the papal statements. “Give communion to the peripheries … to the divorced and ‘remarried’ … to the LGBT community … to anyone and everyone and perhaps eventually anything that eats, like pets and carnivorous plants,” Kwasniewski quipped.
