A surprising development from the UK – the Catholic newspaper The Tablet is calling for the Church to put the war on gays “on the back burner”. Pink News reports:
“There is no more mileage in this issue for the Catholic Church, and the sensible course would be to put it on the back burner with the heat turned low – to make peace with the gay world and move on. Technically yes, homosexuality is against the rules – but so is contraception; so is living together before marriage; so are lots of things people do together in private. As the late Archbishop Derek Worlock once said of contraception, these issues are ‘not the acid test of Christianity’”.
Guess it depends on the new Pope, whoever he ends up being.
