[Who] The Leader of the very few in the Church wanting the recognition of civil unions [and] recognition of homosexual unions [was?].
In 2014, would Cardinal Pell have ever thought that the Pope himself was actually the leader of the very few in the Church who wanted the recognition of civil unions and the recognition of homosexual unions when he said:
“Communion for the divorced and remarried is for some — very few, certainly not the majority of synod fathers — it’s only the tip of the iceberg, it’s a stalking horse. They want wider changes, recognition of civil unions, recognition of homosexual unions,” Cardinal Pell said. “The Church cannot go in that direction. It would be a capitulation from the beauties and strengths of the Catholic tradition, where people sacrificed themselves for hundreds, for thousands of years to do this.”
