So sad that Pope Francis backs the latest Vatican Statement declaring ‘God does not bless LGBTQ Couples’

 

19 March 2021  We Are Church International decries the latest Vatican statement declaring, “the Church does not have, and cannot have, the power to give the blessing to unions of persons of the same sex.”

 

We have been heartened by our Pope’s statements about the importance of love, of families, of reaching out to those at the periphery  and are surprised and deeply discouraged to learn that Pope Francis has endorsed this rigid, unpastoral and totally un-Christian statement written by Cardinal Luis Ladaria at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

 

Blessings of LGBTQ couples have been taking place for decades. This Vatican statement will boost and not diminish these blessings. In 29 countries same sex marriage is legal. This is a testament to the rising understanding of people around the world, including Roman Catholics, about the validity and the gift of same sex marriage in our societies.  As Francis DeBernardo of New Ways Ministry says “the toothpaste is out of the tube and it can’t be put back inside.”

 

The statement is not only heartless but shows a complete lack of responsibility. Seventy-one countries still criminalise homosexual activity. Tragically, these countries will take encouragement from this un-Christian statement. The statement endorsed by Pope Francis will lead to renewed attacks on LGBTQ people. Lives will be lost and suicides will increase.

 

God loves LGBTQ couples and families. God will continue to bless LGBTQ couples and families, even if some churchmen in the Vatican think otherwise.
