Il clero cattolico tedesco si ribella al Vaticano per le unioni dello stesso sesso

German Catholic theologians and clergy have mobilized against a recent ruling from the Vaticano that said the Catholic Church would not bless same-sex unions.

La sentenza “is characterized by a paternalistic gesture of superiority and discriminates against homosexual people and their lifestyles,” secondo a dichiarazione put together by the Catholic Theological faculty at Munster University, pubblicato martedì.
We decisively distance ourselves from this position,” ha detto.
    The statement, signed by 266 theologians, said the ruling lackstheological depth, hermeneutical understanding as well as argumentative stringency.
      While some of their number support the Vatican position, other prominent Catholic clergy in Germany have spoken out against the ruling, which was approved by Pope Francis and published March 15.
        The Limburg diocese posted this profile picture on Facebook on March 17.

        A document that in its argumentation so blatantly excludes any progress in theological and human scientific knowledge will lead to pastoral practice ignoring it,” Georg Bätzing, Bishop of Limburg, detto in a dichiarazione published on Facebook on Wednesday.
        We need a re-evaluation of same-sex partnerships and a further development of the church’s sexual morality.
          Bätzing’s diocese also updated its Facebook profile photo to an image of Limburg Cathedral surrounded by a rainbow, a symbol of the LGBT community, and the phrase “#LoveIsNoSin.
          Bätzing is the head of the German BishopsConference, the Catholic church’s ruling body in Germany.
          CNN has contacted the conference for comment.
          Christoph Lentz, rector of the Pallottine community in Friedberg, Bavaria, also criticized the Vatican ruling, dicendo che lo era “unspeakable, intolerable and incomprehensible to people.
          We are here to bless, no matter how and no matter whom,” Lentz said in a dichiarazione. “We want to be an open church where everyone feels at home.
          Since Friday afternoon the community has flown a rainbow flag with a phrase from Genesis 12:2 che legge: “You shall be a blessing.
          The Vatican ruling is a setback for Catholics who had hoped the institution would modernize its approach to homosexuality.
          Decine di paesi, includere molti nell'Europa occidentale, hanno legalizzato i matrimoni tra persone dello stesso sesso, and the church’s reluctance to embrace LGBTQ people has long held the potential to alienate it from younger followers.
          While Pope Francis has frequently been praised for his welcoming tone toward LGBTQ people both within and outside the church, he approved the March 15 dichiarazione.
          “La benedizione delle unioni omosessuali non può essere considerata lecita,” wrote the Vatican’s top doctrinal office, la Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede.
          “Non è lecito impartire una benedizione su relazioni o partenariati, anche stabile, che comportano attività sessuale al di fuori del matrimonio, come nel caso delle unioni tra persone dello stesso sesso,” si legge nella dichiarazione.
          Benedizione delle unioni dello stesso sesso, the Vatican says, manderebbe un segno che la Chiesa cattolica approva e incoraggia “una scelta e uno stile di vita che non possono essere riconosciuti come oggettivamente ordinati ai piani rivelati di Dio.”
          La dichiarazione lo dice “Dio Stesso non smette mai di benedire ciascuno dei Suoi figli pellegrini in questo mondo…ma non benedice e non può benedire il peccato.”
          Among the German Catholic clergy that support the Vatican’s position are the bishops of Regensburg, Passau, Görlitz and Eichstätt, KNA, the German Bishops Conference news agency, rapporti.
          Same-sex unions are the latest issue on which the German Catholic church has clashed with the Vatican in recent years.
            Nel 2019, it revealed plans for a two-year process of reckoning and reform, to rebuild public trust in the wake of a shocking report into child sexual abuse in the church.
            These plans, which included debating priestly celibacy and whether to allow women to play bigger roles in ecclesiastical life, attracted criticism from the Vatican.
