Pope Francis continues to push the Catholic Church to the Left.
The radical Left is doing everything to capitalize on this.
And now LGBT extremists are laying siege to the Catholic Church with one move that should concern Catholics everywhere.
While it is true that Pope Francis is pushing the Catholic Church to the Left, traditional Catholics still hold enough power to prevent his far-left agenda from being fully implemented.
They recently scored a win when the Vatican released an order banning same-sex blessings in the church.
Previously, in lieu of full-on gay marriages, pro-LGBT priests were blessing same-sex unions, in ceremonies that closely mirror marriage ceremonies.
Pope Francis has previously given his tacit support for same-sex unions, yet under pressure he signed onto the order.
But the order is causing an uproar among pro-LGBT forces in the Church, particularly from Jesuits, of which Pope Francis is a member of.
In particular, German priests are speaking out on this.
Last month, openly homosexual German priest Bernd Mönkebüscher created a Facebook post to urge priests to defy the order, particularly taking offense to the order reading, “God does not and cannot bless sin.”
The same-sex blessing reads that it is “not licit to impart a blessing on relationships, or partnerships, even stable, that involve sexual activity outside of marriage (i.e., outside the indissoluble union of a man and a woman open in itself to the transmission of life), as is the case of the unions between persons of the same sex.”
But Mönkebüscher states that the order is “outdated.”
“In view of the refusal of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to bless homosexual partnerships, we raise our voice and say: We will continue to accompany people who commit to a lasting partnership and bless their relationship,” the homosexual priest goes on to state.
And Mönkebüscher is far from alone, he claims that his defiant declaration has received the support of more than 551 German priests, and has been sent to German Bishops’ Conference, Bishop Georg Bätzing.
And many of those priests are reportedly taking place in a May 10 event blessing service for same-sex couples titled, “Love wins, blessing service for lovers.”
Outside Germany, there is opposition from LGBT activists in the Catholic Church as well.
Jesuit Priest James Martin has launched an online statement of affirmation calling on Catholic Priests and Church staff to sign on, stating that they will bless same-sex unions.
Thousands have signed on, showing that there the LGBT agenda is working overtime to take over the Catholic Church.
