‘Absurd, Horrific!’ Catholics Condemn Pope’s Blessing for Same-Sex Couples

The Rev. Gerald Murray of the Archdiocese of New York told Newsmax on Monday that Pope Francis’ new document that allows for church blessings of same-sex couples is “absurd” and “horrific.”

“It’s the groundwork for redefining the nature of sin because basically the church has always said that sex outside of marriage is sinful, so all homosexual activity is sinful,” Murray told “The Chris Salcedo Show.” “The document also talks about people who are in invalid second marriages, the church says, according to the words of Christ, that is adultery. So now the church is saying that your behavior is gravely sinful, offensive to God, but the church should bless you. And what does a blessing mean? It means that we ask God to favor you in that relationship. This is absurd. This is a horrific document. It is revolutionary.

“All kinds of distinctions were made [in the document] saying well, this isn’t blessing it in view of it being recognized as a marriage. Fine, that’s what the church says. But you know exactly what’s going to happen. The document that says people seeking the blessings shouldn’t get dressed up in wedding garments … and come the same day as they have their civil ceremony. Well, people are going to do what they want, and this is really very upsetting. This is not how the Catholic Church has ever conducted himself, and I’m very upset by what the pope has done.” Read full story at Newsmax.
