1A Cardinal calls for a revision of Church teaching on homosexuality

Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, Archbishop of Luxembourg, told the German news agency KNA that he believes a “fundamental revision” of Catholic doctrine on homosexuality is necessary. “I believe that the sociological-scientific basis of this teaching is no longer true,” he explained, reacting to the coming-out of 125 members of the Catholic Church in Germany – including several priests. Without specifying what changes he was referring to, the cardinal suggested that Pope Francis’ “behavior” on the issue could open the door to future change. He deplored also the fact that someone could be fired from a Church ministry for being gay, saying the Church should be a “home” for them.
