Just a fine point...when one has an obligation to speak silence does imply consent. One can remain silent when it is known the speaking would of no good and may in fact increase the evil. Prudence rules in these matters ,you are not always required to start a fight.

Technically, Cardinal Tobin wasn't promoting the event because he claims (falsely or not) he didn't know it occurred. Further, even if it can be shown he -did- know it occurred, that still doesn't constitute promotion which requires some sort of act on his part to do so. Silence doesn't imply consent.

The US Supreme Court disagrees. Be grateful for that, else every Catholic "promotes" homosexuality whenever they don't criticize homosexual couples in public. ;-)

By the Catechism's own words "giving scandal" must require an act to do so. The verb "give" describes an action. e.g. "gives counsel" or in this case "gives scandal." Silence results from NOT acting, i.e. communicating.

Your citation is irrelevant. ;-)
