A Pastoral Earthquake At The Synod by John Thavis

The following is an article I noticed this morning at Abuse Tracker. I decided to post the link here.

Article by John Thavis

Here is only one sentence from the document. The tone is at least pastoral. It is about time.

"Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community. Are we capable of welcoming these people, guaranteeing to them a fraternal space in our communities? Often they wish to encounter a church that offers them a welcoming home. Are our communities capable of providing that, accepting and valuing their sexual orientation, without compromising Catholic doctrine on the family and matrimony." 

Now what was Cardinal Burke saying the other day about keeping gay couples away from their families and others?
