  • Australia: A priest says he is prepared to wed homosexual couples



    03-5-2011  

    Father Bob Maguire, parish priest in Melbourne, in southern Australia, has said he is prepared to wed homosexual couples. Seventy-five years old and known for his ultra-progressive opinions, he declared to the daily newspaper The Herald Sun dated February 15th, that it was his “duty as pastor to care for the needy. Homosexual couples fall into that category.”

    In the federal state of Victoria, of which Melbourne is the capital, same-sex couples can have their union registered with the civil authorities, but Bishop Les Tomlinson, auxiliary bishop and vicar general of the archdiocese of Melbourne, reaffirmed that ceremonies uniting same-sex couples were not permitted in “any of the churches of the archdiocese and that a marriage may only be celebrated between a man and a woman.” – This priest of seventy-five years of age is an ultra-progressive, and that is reassuring. Progressivism is not going to last much longer. (Sources: apic/The Herald Sun – DICI, issue number 231, March 5th, 2011)

  • It is a non-Sacrament.  Like the ordination of women or squirrels, no sacrament between the same-sex "couple" would have taken place.

  • Hmm...He is willing to do this now that he has reached retirement age...interesting.

  • Happily, these are the turds that will be swept away by the Purification that is now under way.

    He probably is. Typical of a Novus Ordo priest to just make silly faces, act as if they have no care in the world. They just think they're all fine as far as salvation goes, just like the Protestants.
