Cardinals Raymond Burke and Gerhard Müller have openly condemned the decision by the German Synodal Way assembly to begin officially “blessing” sexual relationships between persons of the same sex.
The recent gathering of the Synodal Way concluded with 176 out of 202 participants voting in favor of offering blessings for same-sex couples in Catholic dioceses.
Cardinals Burke and Müller reproved the German bishops in an interview on EWTN’s “The World Over with Raymond Arroyo.”
“It is absolutely blasphemic to make a blessing about those forms of life which is, according to the biblical and the ecclesial doctrine a sin because all forms of sexuality outside of a valid matrimony is sin and cannot be blessed,” Müller said.
Likewise, Burke said that, “Whether it’s a departure, heretical teaching and denial of one of the doctrines of the faith, or apostasy in the sense of simply walking away from Christ and from his teaching in the Church to embrace some other form of religion, these are crimes.”
Last year, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith restated the Church’s long standing doctrine on the sacrament of marriage, writing that “the Church does not have, and cannot have, the power to bless unions of persons of the same sex.”
