Germany, home of the Nazis, was also home to a mass staged “coming out” event by over 125 Roman priests, nuns, and other leaders in Germany today. According to one report, “More than 100 Catholic church officials in Germany came out as LGBT, queer or non-binary on Monday, adding to calls for reform within the crisis-hit church.”
The 125-strong group, which includes priests and education and administration workers, published an online statement demanding an end to the “discrimination and exclusion” they had experienced in the church.
“I don’t want to hide my sexual identity anymore,” Uwe Grau, a priest in the diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart, was quoted as saying on the group’s website.
“We are part of the church,” added Raphaela Soden, who works in pastoral care for young adults and identifies as queer and non-binary.
“We always have been. It’s time to finally make it clear that we exist and how wonderfully queer the body of Christ is.”
The statement called for “free access to all pastoral vocations” and an end to what the signatories called a “system of concealment, double standards, and dishonesty” surrounding LGBT issues.
Another report claimed that “They are protesting discrimination in the Church, not only at the altar for marriage, but also at work in church offices, parishes, and schools.” The report continued, “Many employees have been fired by dioceses and religious organizations around the world after being identified as LGBTQ.”
Last year, a major Roman Catholic theological research institution claims that based on a “ground-breaking” theological study endorsed by over sixty “prominent scholars,” the traditional Roman Catholic doctrines opposing homosexual relationships and sex severely flawed and based on “misinterpretations” of the Scriptures.
The 80-page study–which was conducted by the Wijngaards Institute–claims that Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13 are misinterpreted and only condemn “specific kinds of male same-sex sexual activity” but it does not condemn same-sex relationships in general. The study also claims that Romans 1:26-27 are misinterpreted and says that female same-sex relationships are condemned nowhere in Scripture, according to a press release.
Of all the things the Roman Catholic Church gets wrong — the Mass, saint worship and idolatry, and most importantly, justification — the organization has typically always ruled correctly on social behaviors such as homosexuality and abortion. Yet, under the current pope, we’ve seen a movement away from a staunch adherence to conservative doctrine on these issues. Francis has stated that homosexuals are “God’s children,” conducted a mass for gay Catholics, and endorsed same-sex unions in a documentary film recently released. At some point, it should come as no surprise if the Roman Catholic Church and all the apostate Protestant spin-offs join her in a massive sexual rebellion and openly embrace sodomy.
