Homosexualist Synod Chief: “Francis In Full Agreement”
Asked if homosexual acts might no longer be considered a grave sin by the Synod, Hollerich was evasive: "I don't know what the Synod will bring." He said he wanted to listen to "the people of the world, what they express." No one knows what the phrase "the people of the world" means in this context. In Australia, participation in the Synod was less than 0.05% of Catholics.
Smaglick countered that Scripture and Catholic tradition have taught for 2,000 years that "sodomy is a sin and abomination that cries out to heaven." Hollerich ridicules himself by trying to ridicule the Bible, claiming that it says that "the sun revolves around the earth" and that we must therefore "interpret the Bible."
However, the Bible only says - like modern languages - that "the sun rises" and "the sun sets" (e.g. Ecclesiastes 1:4). If Hollerich's pseudo-argument were true, then it could be used to ridicule any statement in the Bible.
For Smaglick it is obvious, that Hollerich and Francis want to use the synod to contradict the Bible and canonise homosexual acts. Hollerich is already receiving the first diocesan reports and will produce a draft in September.
