Senior bishop: Consider communion for divorcees, married clergy and homosexuality

The Catholic Church should listen to all the arguments in favour of gay relationships, Communion for remarried divorcees, and ending mandatory celibacy for priests, a senior Italian bishop has …
G.Tayor, thank you for your support and agreement. The Nunzio is a deviant from orthodox Catholicism and, as such, is a serious scandal. With this you agree. But this prelate was appointed by Pope Francis to an important position. And this is the real SCANDAL for me. What am I to think? I categorically reject the ideas of the Nunzio. And Pope Francis?

G.Tayor, thank you for your support and agreement. The Nunzio is a deviant from orthodox Catholicism and, as such, is a serious scandal. With this you agree. But this prelate was appointed by Pope Francis to an important position. And this is the real SCANDAL for me. What am I to think? I categorically reject the ideas of the Nunzio. And Pope Francis? It seems to me that either Pope Francis agrees with the ideas (and is thereby a material heretic) or he tolerates such abberations as, well, not so bad, certainly not as taboo-ideas. If the former is true, the Pope has fundamentally failed in his duty to protect MY faith (and that of all). Either the Pope is a material heretic or he fails miserably at his duty as the head of the magisterium. In either case, I find it hard to identify myself with the confines of the "Church" being defined by the Pope. The "Church" of which the Pope is a member is becoming logically incompatible with the Church I learned as a child. Here the Pope is more than a SUPERscandal for me, rather he offends greviously against faith and the security in terms of which salvation is sought by me. That boarders on very mortal SIN! Agreement????

I could not agree more with what you have written here.
This prelate is typically all too common. He clearly has lost his faith and has the arrogance to continue in his luxury lifestyle (which we, the Mass attending Catholic "peasants" pay for) pontificating against Our Lord's Truth.
These "prelates" must be dismissed.
Almighty God give Your Vicar the gift of courage. Amen

Let me freely reformulate the prelates words, but in another context, say, a taboo free discussion with SS murderers at Auschwitz. What does "without taboo" mean? A "taboo" is an act whose evil is so intrinsically terrible (sinful) that one simple avoids it. O.k, Nunzi Galatino arrranges a taboo free discusion about the race improvement policies of the Nazis and carried out by the SS. To have …More
Let me freely reformulate the prelates words, but in another context, say, a taboo free discussion with SS murderers at Auschwitz. What does "without taboo" mean? A "taboo" is an act whose evil is so intrinsically terrible (sinful) that one simple avoids it. O.k, Nunzi Galatino arrranges a taboo free discusion about the race improvement policies of the Nazis and carried out by the SS. To have such a talk, the Nunzio would have to disregard the moral status of mass murder for, well, it is for the good of the "superior" race, no? In short, a tabooless discussion of homosexuality implies excluding consideration of its status re sin.

I can imagine the Nunzio scolding those sour-faced faithul rosary praying Cathoics standing in front of one of those ovens used to burn murdered Jews as, well, not having a happy-go-lucky view of life and who prefer serious demonstrating to having fun. I deduce what our Nunzio would seek out, namely the fun-guys of the Wehrmacht and whoop it up with some good old fashion German beer.

In my opinion, Nunzio Galantino should be removed from his position, severly disciplined and sent oft to a monastery in deepest Siberia to pray for forgiveness. He is a scandal for me! But worse is the fact that Pope Francis has appointed the prelate to an important position. Does this imply that the attitude and judgments of the Nunzio, a prelate appointed by the Pope, are shared by Pp. Francis or at least acceptable enough for the subject matter of serious value-free discussion? If this is the case, then Pope Francis is not only a scandal for me, but, as Pope and head of the magisterium, he is a threat to my ability to remain in the same ecclesiatical "outfit" as him. This is no joke, not amusing, rather horrifying to me. I am stunned!
