Late last month, the German Catholic Bishop Conference along with 125 others including priests, religious educators, and Church employees are backing a new initiative calling for a change in Church teaching on sexuality and gender.

A week after the initiative launched, Jesuit Cardinal Hollerich, president of the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union, said “this teaching is no longer correct.”

“What was condemned in the past was sodomy. At that time, it was thought that the whole child was contained in the sperm of the man, and that was simply transferred to homosexual men. But there is no homosexuality in the New Testament. There is only the mention of homosexual acts, which were partly pagan ritual acts. That was, of course, forbidden.”

Hollerich spoke out in an interview the German Catholic News Agency, formally calling for a change in Church doctrine.

“I believe that the sociological-scientific foundation of this teaching is no longer true. I think it’s time we make a fundamental revision of the doctrine.”

Without elaborating on what about the teaching needs revised, he said the pope’s words could lead to change.

“I also believe that we are thinking ahead in terms of doctrine. The way the pope has expressed himself in the past can lead to a change in doctrine.”

Hollerich said the Church needs to remain human, adding he knew of gay priests and laypeople in Luxembourg.

“They know they have a home in the Church. With us no one is dismissed because they are homosexual. I can’t kick them out. They would become unemployed. How can such a thing be Christian?”

So what DOES the Church teaching have to say?

“The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition. Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.” – CCC 2358-2359

  1. The very first book of the Bible shows how humans were created man and woman. Two people of opposite sexes have to join to create new life. This act of creating children, becoming a family and raising the next generation is sacred and the church shouldn’t promote anything else. Everything else really is an abomination of the act of sex and the Church knows this and shouldn’t waiver.

    • Males and females did a good job of populating the earth. Don’t you think? The mouth needs to not be abominable. A mouth that does not talk like Jesus will be an abominable mouth. Jezebel had a mouth like that. God’s prophets needed to hide. Catholic church leaders made gays, pedophilia people, nude people, and zoosexuals to hide, and whoever else. Catholic church made the root off bitterness to spiring up in many. Bitter hearts will say bitter words to people. Those bitter hearts call death giving sweet. God will not take pleasure in the death of people like that.

    • Catholic leaders hate male and female with a vengeance. You will find that out walking around with sneakers only. Police that catholic church wants will tackle you are if you are abominable thing. They are tackling God’s image. Satan hates it.

  2. Gays are not Sodomites. Sodomites built this nation making what Jesus would never make. Jesus did not make pay me or else. Jesus did not make fear giving laws. Jesus made work out your own salvation not terrorizing others, and don’t work ill to others loving them. Jesus made don’t be offended by what you see having great peace in you keeping God’s laws. God
    law is not finding an excuse to arrest and kill thinking you are doing God a service. Christs enemies thought in that way.

  3. Teaching against peace loving zoosexuals – zoophilia people are also wrong. King James Version (KJV) John 5:22“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:” Catholic church leaders are making each individual think they can do what the Son of God is supposed to do. The Son of God will not have blood in him when he judges the living and the dead. We have blood in us. Jesus, though he was perfect would have sinned had he thrown a stone. Church makes people with blood in them to throw stones, thus sin against themselves. Legal system makes people to throw stones, thus sin against themselves. Fornication is a sin against yourself, Jesus did not make the legal system. Jesus is not running the church. Open your eyes. Awake out of slumber. Things need to change. People will then see that Mary cannot do what Jesus does; even as we cannot do what alone Jesus does.

    The god of the catholic church is the god of the Hittites’ and the Amorites and Jebusites and Canaanites and people of Jerrico, and philistines, and the god of Baal and Baalim. Jezabel worshipped the same false god. She made people to hide. Catholic church does the same thing saying come unto me not changing a ding dang thing about their doctrine that caused them to kill the people they are calling to their church. Catholic church leaders are only interested in how much money you have. You are a leather wallet to catholic church leaders. That is all. They secretly want to kill the certain named people bringing them closer to the church. Muslims love with dissimulation doing the same kind of thing so they can multiply around people they want to kill.

  4. Be good to pedohilia people for the same reasons. They have rules they go by. Judge as to who loves another more than another and why. Judge as to who is like Jesus and who is not judging rightly. Jesus will look out of your eyes. You will be one with Jesus. Ears will be unplugged hearing even as Jesus hears.

  5. Catholic church made left people who are doing what they are doing. Their desier to stop what they see as global warming will cause delivery trucks from shipping goods that fill grocery stores and whatever else. Devils are panicking in Left people. This is all devils have. That panicking mentality needs to stop.
    The thought that hell is a place of eternal torment made people to make tormenting laws thinking they were being like God. Devils torment people through people. God could not make all things new had Satan have a kingdom in the earth. Jesus would have remained in the tomb or hell – had Jesus not obeyed the Unseen Father in his mind regarding anything. The Unseen father who separated from the mind of Jesus on the cross would not have preached to the lost in Satan’s prison. The Unseen Father would have been cast into Satan’s prison. 1 Peter 3:19 – 20. The Unseen Father would not have preached to the lost in that prison. He would have been one of the lost.

  6. This Leftist madness is causing diesel fuel to run out in 25 days. A substate will more than likly fall short of what is needed.

  7. This thought comes to me. Beings who are immortal will not destroy the earth. We are not immortal. Saved people have not yet put on incorruption.

  8. 1.it is not what you read. It is what you become. The church is cannibalizing people with their words. That makes Left people who take it a step further.
    2. Don’t church people know about the marriage supper of the lamb? Males and females will be married to Jesus. Jesus will be in their minds. All will be married to each other.
    3. What is bad about life being attracted to life?
    6. Genisis 19 – 9 was about one person judging the beings in Lot’s house. Legal system is all about judging in a condemning way. God did not save Lot from being edified by Sodomites. God, said, OH – MY – ME, someone is coming to praise Lot. I have to save him from that. 2 Peter 2:7- 8 is not praising. 2 peter 2:7 – 8 is not any kind of sex. 2 Peter 2 – 7 – 8 is about God rescuing Lot from people who vexed him with filthy conversation.
    7. It is OK to be like Jesus not his enemies.
    8. God wants to to be ready for what is to come. They will obey peaceful laws. Eternal life is to come. They that think God is pleased with death giving will not obtain life. Jesus is the judge not the Unseen Father. The mind of the Unseen Father needs to be in our mind.
    9. Jesus is not sinning when he marries males and females in the marriage supper of the lamb. Meats for the belly and the belly for meats are the only things that will be destroyed. Being like the angels is being immortal. There is nothing about our secrets or sexual parts being destroyed.
    3. Jezebel was like a Sodomite making God’s prophets to hide. People who run the church make people to hide. Jesus will not do that.
    The Mouth must not be abominable. Jesus is not a hunter of specific sexuality named people. Jesus is a saver. Jesus is a protector. Jesus is a healer of bodies and broken hearts. Jesus is a giver of good things. People who turn God’s word into a lie will not protect people. They will be like Christs enemies who needed to be chastised for teaching the doctrins the commandments of men. They wanted Jesus to be dead even as the church wants gays and others too be dead. That is evil.

    Jesus is life not death. They that think Jesus is death are slain before him not wanting Jesus who is life to rule over them.

    No one would have crucified Jesus had people seen that Jesus was the Lord of Glory.

    Thou shalt not kill is being broken in the minds of many. They should live? God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked.

    People who came here in Christs name in 1492 stole land from the Indians. You are condeming yourself with your own words.

    Abominable people will say abominable words. Romans 2:1, condemn be condemed for doing the same things. Males ejaculate. Can you comprehend that?

    The fruits of the Spirit are not in the people who are against gays, zoos, pedophilia people etc. Sodomites made jails and money and Legal system.

    You are causing harm. You are causing the root of bitterness to spring up in people. Devils come it. People get killed.

    Have you not heard an eye for an eye? I say counter wise love your enemies do good to them that hurt you.

    people will find an excuse to harm people had they look hard enough. Christs enemies did that. Jesus did not praise them.Jesus will not praise you.

    1 Timothy 4:4 “For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:”

    God saves they that are like him, not his enemies.

    They that are against gays, and nude people and people, who draw nude art and they that have young nude art and zoosexuals and pedophilia people are murderers already. Murderers are described in Romans 1:29 – 32. They turn God’s word into a lie.

    Satan wanted Jesus to jump from a high place. Satan is causing the suicides. Satan wants people to be sad.

    People are being grievous upon people. Whose laws are they obeying. Surly not God’s laws that Jesus kept.

    Lying is really bad. Teaching people to kill others is really bad. People need to listen for the voice of Jesus through people. People will crucify Jesus all over again not doing that.

    Loving people will say loving words. Look at yourself, or rather, listen to yourself.

    OH yea beware of dogs. They will chew you up had they be unstable minded dogs. They are in the church chewing up people.

    CHRISTIASN DID NOT COOME HERE FROM SPAIN. SODOMITES CAME HERE FROM SPAIN. Don’t be like Jesus. Be a Sodomite.

    Condemners sin against themselves. That is being born of fornication. Christs enemies said: we are not born of fornication we have one Father even God.

    Gays have never done what is recorded, Duffus.

    God’s commandment is love others not working ill to others. People are determined to not obey that.

    God said have sex. Multiply. Be fruitful. There is nothing about celibacy. Jesus remained being God visually seen. It was best for older people who could not make life to remain. It is better to marry that to burn. That is have an erection. It takes two to marry, dumb, dumb.

    More than one wife will solve the adultery thing. God did not have a problem with it.

    It is evil to de nut kids to keep their high voice. That is abuse.

    God’s light is eternal fire to the wicked. Wicked die when Jesus comes back. They are raised 1000 years later. They are judged. They are burned up permanently. They look like a lake of fire prior to becoming ashes.

    You are not inhospitable. That is for sure.

    Satan brought money. That came here in 1492. God wants to control us
    Jesus does not attack names. You don’t know that? Jesus will not say pedophile die. Jesus will say slay they that say die to a human.

    Jesus fulfilled love one another.

    No natural affection is having no love.

    Males and Females did a good job of populating the earth, wouldn’t you say? Let others be. Devils say no way. We want to spill the blood of god’s image through people.

  9. Don’t get involved with Islam Pope. Muslims don’t bow down to God. Pope needs to obey God. God wants us to consider how we are compared to how Jesus is. Legal system does not do that. Legal system needs to go. So does Islam. Jesus is the Father visually seen. Muslims Allah is not the Father God. That being cannot use the name Father God.

  10. Sodomites were not gay. They were religious people who used the wrong kind of judging. People do that today. Jesus judged people not condeming anyone when he walked on the earth.

  11. Sodomites were not gay. They were religious people who used the wrong kind of judging. People do that today. Jesus judged people not condemning anyone when he walked on the earth.

  12. All need to be told to not threaten people who have sex with dogs and the like. You don’t want people threatening you. I am sure of that. Don’t church leaders know about do unto others, what you would want others, to do unto you, means? Educate people so as to have people to be peaceful to others They will be perfect when they are peacful to their neighbor. Hell is not a kingdom for Satan. God could not make all things new had Satan have a kingdom in the earth. The colorful Satan will be burned up from the inside out in the sight of men, Ezekiel 28: 18, KJV. Wicked are burned up all at one time. That happens 1000 years after Christs second coming. Wicked fire giving people in word and deed and all liars will be burned up all at one time. They look like a lake of fire. They become ashes under the feet of the righteous when they come out of the city of God. The resurrection of the wicked prior to that is what unchains Satan.

  13. God is easily entreated. Threatening people are not easily intreated. God’s mind therefore is not in the minds of people who threaten people.

  14. Islamic people are sneaky. They say their belief system is like that of others, not being like that of others. Muslims say they have a peacful belief system, when it is not about peace. Muslims say they respect Jesus, not respecting Jesus as the Lord of Glory. They want Jesus to be like the boastful fallen Lucifer. Muslims say That no angels fell. Eden would still be a reality had no angels fallen. Muslims say they are the descendants of Aberham, not being the descendance of Aberham. Muslims say they are gay and transexual etc. They do that to be around people not seen as their own, killing, suddenly. Muslims used deceit when they came to be 600 years after Christ. Muslims warred against whoever when people figured out that Muslims were using deceit. I am not deceitful. I am saying the truth.

Muslims want to use money against us being worse to people than what is being done now, when people don’t have money. Muslims want to impose a deadly pay or die tax on people. They will see they that don’t have money as being worthless. God’s mind needs to be in our mind controlling us, not money controling us. God opens the eyes that people can see. God unplugs ears helping a person to see Satan and or Jesus in another person, judging rightly.

  17. Test the spirits. Evil spirits hate seeing Jesus in a person. Devils want people to look at a name. The person attacks they that are accused of being associated with that name. Devils hate parts that make life. Devils convince people to hate the sight of those parts. People obey them, hating the sight of parts that made them to exist. They end up hating God who made, them not even knowing it.

  19. Philippians 4:8 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
    Devils don’t want people to obey that verse looking for what we see as being bad. People who do that will always be wrong. Christs enemies tried to find somthing bad about Jesus, always being wrong.

  20. The nude body is not naughty. A naughty person a wicked man walketh with a froward mouth. Make clothing optional to be allowed e everywhere.

  22. Giving unto Cesar what is Cesars, means this: The coin belonged to Ceasar. Ceasar’s name and image were on the coin. Money belongs to the name and image on coins and bills. God’s unseen name is on all that he made. We make things with what God made. We are god’s. We are God’s childern. He made us. Giving unto God what is God’s means this: God’s image giving to god’s image what is God’s. People giving to each other what God made. What we have now is beggars cannot be choosers. People who don’t have money end up getting what no one wants. The Unseen Father will control the person for their salvation’s sake as to what they ask from another person. Godly people will see God’s light as light, not seeing God as fire. That is why working out your own salvation with fear and trembling is important. People are taught to make people to tremble with the legal system. Catholic church did the same thing with their doctrines. That needs to change.

  25. John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease. “John the Babbtist was a man therefore could not be equal to Christ. It is the same with any human no matter what the name. Sin is in all of us. We die, having no control of when we die. All of your parishioners need to know this. They need to making peace with they that reveal the truth.

Matthew 11:12“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” King James Version (KJV)” Gays have been given force. zoosexcuals have suffered violence.

USA is designed to make people to suffer feeling justified. Matthew 5:20“For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.” USA teaches people to have the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees of Christs day. Christs enemies were like the Sodomites.

  28. The words afford, and affordable, and buissnesses for profit did not exist in the beginning. Those concepts came here in 1492. The theives in the temple were thinking profit for their buissness. The concept of afford and affordable makes people to figure out ways to get money. Minimal brain power is needed to figure out where those concepts came from knowing they did not come from God’s mind.

  29. The consept for this amount of money needs to be done away with fast. Recourses are being used i up really fast when the major reason for making things is to earn money. I read that God’s gifts are predicted to run out by 2050. Free that exited in the begginning cannot exist when money exits. People can talk. They can communicate.

  32. Testicles that are seen on Dudou” in the movie white Snake part one is not bad to see by any age. God made them. Those parts need to be put back on Narnia characters in that movie. To say they are bad to see is to say that God is bad. He made them. The penis itself is not bad top see. Dudou” checked Shen to see if that part was taken looking in his pants. People had to do it that way to not get an X rating. Satan wants to X out those parts and all life for that matter. Snub your nose at Satan allowing those parts to be seen. Psalm 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them. King James Version. Old Scofield is a good bible.

  34. Indians were not poor. You know why? They did not use money. Satan deceives. Money deceives.
    people don’t need to live in the horse and buggy era to not be of the world. Catholic church misinformation caused Amish people to exist. Jesus has a kingdom that is not of this world. He said that to Pontious Pilate. People who are not of the world will be like the gentle, giving, pleasant speaking Jesus. They will be on a rock not being offended by what is seen. Censoring will not exist. Jesus is not of the world having a kingdom that is not of this world. The body of Jesus looks like Sardine and Jasper stone in his glory. A red, yellow color.

  35. Pope talks about not wanting people to die like in south Korea calling them sacrifices that the pope does not want. Money demands a sacrafice. Pope wants it to remain.

  36. Christ is the only one who is good, working through us. Jesus is the Father. Jesus is the rock. We need to stand on that rock. A lot of people are not standing on that rock. That is why we have censoring. Devils are offended in people. That makes people to not n be peaceful. That makes people to not keep God’s laws. Those people don’t want the world to give up money. It does not mean living a minimalistic existence. Image being able to ask for what you want. Don’t think you are increased with goods having need of nothing. The kind Lord of Glory who is all good things needs to be in your mind loving others even as you want to be loved. Devils want things that are seen. Devils want money to be used buying things that are seen. Devils want jails. Devils want people to not be good to people.

  38. Israelites are not the descendants of Esau and Ishmael. Jacob was later named Israel. Jacob got the blessing, not Esau. Muslims are the descendant of Ishmael and Esau who God hated. Muslims are not the descendants of Aberham.
