The German Church is funded by the state. Many priests and bishops no longer obey Church teaching and they are untethered from the people. They clearly do the bidding of their funders.

This will likely get very messy. I would say the Vatican must act but I don’t know how much the Vatican is actually against this and I don’t know if they have the spine for the fight, even if they did want it.

Here, Bishop George Bätzing, the head of the Catholic Bishop’s Conference in Germany, says that the Catholic church there is already blessing gay unions but are now moving to formalize it. To be clear, they are not just blessing the people involved, they are blessing the union.

It’s in German but you can read the sub-titles.

Who knows where this goes? All I know is that it can’t be ignored any longer.
