Pope to convene synod

The Pope is convening an extraordinary synod in October to consider the challenges of the family in light of evangelism. They will take up same-sex marriage among other topics. The Pope is from a country where gay marriage is legal. While policy is not likely to change, this could impact attitude.

One Response to Pope to convene synod

  1. JJFlanagan says:

    I am not Catholic, so the Pope’s views on gay marriage will not effect my values and convictions against this reprehensible idea. If one calls himself or herself a Christian and actually believes that God intended that two men could enter into a “marriage” or two women, then they have simply gone the way of pagans and fornicators and falsely used religion as a justification. To declare that God accepts sinful relationships is nothing less than blasphemy.
