LINZ, Austria, May 26, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) - A new book commissioned by the Austrian bishops argues that homosexual relationships come from God, revealing God's "goodness and humanity." The book calls upon the Church to change her teaching against homosexuality and to bless homosexual relationships.

According to liturgical scholar Fr. Ewald Vollger OT, who contributed to the book, changing Church teaching on homosexuality "can be not only discussed, but also demanded." The Church could only bless homosexual relationships after a previous change to Church teaching, as Vollger pointed out himself.

Talking to the diocesan newspaper of the Diocese of Linz, he said, "There is also a considerable number of bishops that would like to see a rethinking in the area of sexual morality for the evaluation of same-sex relationships."

While making sure to distinguish the blessing from the sacrament of marriage, Vollger nevertheless claimed that homosexuality needs to be seen in a positive light.

"Just as marriage between a man and a woman is an image of God's creative love, so is a same-sex relationship an image of God's attention to human beings," he said. "If partners live the gift of mutual love in faithfulness to one another and live their lives with the spiritual gifts of God such as kindness, forbearance, patience, reconciliation, etc., their relationship is also an image of God's goodness and humanity."

[Ron: Of course "If partners live the gift of mutual love in faithfulness to one another" etc, they will be on a growth path to spiritual maturity and an eventual meeting with the Creator on Paradise. However, the problem with intimate same sex relationships is that partners may also seek to participate in physical sexual behaviours which are contrary to Creation's energetic blueprint for human life and interactions. Male and female energies are opposites and designed to unite and meld to complement each other in spiritual, psychological and physical union. That is not possible between same sex couples. Moreover, serious problems arise when couples, and especially male couples, seek union through physical sexual intercourse. In particular, male homosexual behaviours have detrimental physical, psychological and spiritual effects on participants. In addition, widespread homosexual and lesbian behaviours and unions can have serious negative effects on a community by reducing procreation to the point where the community cannot reproduce itself. In effect, any community that encouragies homosexuality runs the risk of committing social as well as spiritual suicide.].

Vollger praised the blessing of homosexual couples on Valentine's Day, as it takes place annually, for instance, in Cardinal Christoph Schönborn's cathedral in Vienna. The blessing proposed in the book commissioned by the Austrian bishops, however, goes beyond that.

"A benediction, as proposed from the point of view of the theology of liturgy, would also have an official character through which the Church expresses the obligation of fidelity and the exclusivity of the relationship," according to Vollger.

[Ron: The issue is NOT primarily about the exclusivity of homosexual relationships although that issue is likely to be especially problematic in homosexual male relationships. The real issue is not mentioned by these clerical advocates of homosexuality. That issue is the underlying energetic incompatability of the proposed partners. That incomparability arises from attempting to unite similar cosmic magnetic energies. A simple analogy might be seen if an attempt is made to unite two positive magnets.].

In his interview with the diocesan newspaper, Vollger did not explain how Church doctrine could change. The Church's condemnation of homosexuality goes back to ancient biblical times.

"The rejection of homosexual behavior that is found in the Old Testament is well known," writes Catholic Answers. "In Genesis 19, two angels in disguise visit the city of Sodom and are offered hospitality and shelter by Lot. During the night, the men of Sodom demand that Lot hand over his guests for homosexual intercourse."

After Lot's refusal, "the angels blind the men of Sodom. Lot and his household escape, and the town is destroyed by fire ‘because the outcry against its people has become great before the Lord' (Gen. 19:13)."

It is because of this passage that homosexuality is called one of the four sins that cry out to God for vengeance.

In the New Testament, St. Paul is clear that active unrepentant homosexuals cannot enter heaven.

"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God," he writes.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that homosexual acts are "acts of grave depravity," pointing out that tradition has "always declared that ‘homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.'"

"They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved," states the Catechism.

The Catholic Church furthermore teaches that the homosexual inclination is also "objectively disordered" since God created sexual attraction for the purpose of drawing a man and a woman together to become husband and wife in marriage.

[Ron: As regards the rhetoric about Catholic Church teachings be aware that the Christian religion was created by Roman emperors under the influence of Pharisees who not only forced the Romans to crucify Esu Immanuel (aka Christ Jesus) but also they sought to use the Christian religion to eradicate Jesus' divine teaching thereafter.

Moreover, the Vatican and the Catholic branch of the Christian religion has been largely under the influence of the Talmudic neo-Pharisaic Black Nobility since the Vatican split with Orthodox Christianity in the 11th Century. Today Francis, the current Talmudic puppet Pope, is rapidly steering the Catholic Church down a demonic Talmudic ideological path as this article evidences. For background see eg: Judaism and Christianity - Two Thousand Years of Lies - 60 Years of State Terrorism - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Judaism-and-Christianity---Two-Thousand-Years-of-Lies---60-Years-of-State-Terrorism.shtml ].

The book commissioned by the Austrian bishops looks at the blessing of homosexual relationships not only from the point of view of liturgy. It also contains a section on ethics and moral theology, a biblical section, as well as a chapter looking at the current situation in Austria, where homosexual "marriage" was legalized in 2019.

Advocates for changing Catholic teaching on homosexuality in North America used the publication of the book to push their agenda.

Pro-homosexual Jesuit Fr. James Martin tweeted about it:

New Ways Ministry, which, according to its website, "educates and advocates for justice and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Catholics, and reconciliation within the larger church and civil communities," also wrote about it.

[Ron: Justice and equality are cultural Marxist (ie Talmudic) buzz words designed to confuse and deceive the debate. Anyone who has a proclivity for indulgence in lesbian, male homosexual or bisexual behaviours and anyone who wants to claim a gender other than their biological inheritance IS FREE TO DO SO. There are no laws prohibiting such behaviours, attitudes and beliefs in the Western societies in which these Catholic bishops are pontificating today. However it is not appropriate for people wanting to indulge in these behaviours, attitudes and/or gender fantasies, to seek to have the rest of society applaud or legislate special approval or priviliges for them. Nor are lesbians, male homosexuals, bisexuals and gender dysphorics entitled to impose their beliefs and fantasies upon the general population using the Catholic Church, the courts, the MSM or any other forum. IF the Vatican does impose these new values and behaviours on Catholics those who disagree can always WALK AWAY.* Those who don't will have to accept the consequences of their acceptance.

* The Abundant Hope organisation is the teaching arm of Christ Michael Aton's Millennial Reign on this planet and one of its goals is to change the face of religion because all religions here have  been corrupted by demonic forces.].

German-speaking bishops are a significant force in advancing the homosexual agenda.

Cardinal Reinhard Marx, at the time head of the German Bishop's Conference, said in 2019, "I insist: we welcome homosexuals, they belong to the Church, also to the sacramental community." He added that homosexual couples can receive "a blessing in the sense of a pastoral accompaniment, we can pray together."

The current president of the German Bishops' Conference, Bishop Georg Bätzing, has also called for changing the Church's official teaching on "practiced homosexuality" by "jumping over trenches."

"Here the statement of the Catechism is first of all that these people are to be met with esteem and respect," Bätzing said in an interview earlier this year. "But every single sexual act is seen as evidence of a disordered sexual life. This is something that many people no longer want or can understand."

Bätzing claimed that in moral theology, "we have long since moved towards saying" that if "true love and faithfulness are lived," even among same-sex partners, "we must acknowledge that."

On the other hand, German Cardinal Gerhard Müller has come down strongly on the side of Church doctrine during a talk in 2018.

"If a priest blesses a homosexual couple, then this is an atrocity at a holy site, namely, to approve of something that God does not approve of," the former Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith pointed out.
