    BBC News - Catholic synod: Pope Francis setback on gay policy

    what is up with the RCC?

    Are they going for the gay marriage idea or not???

    one minute they want more openness to the idea of gay marriage - the next they say they would rather stick with the Bible.


    which is it going to be??

    from the article

    Here we have a Jesuit idea that has been tried out many times in the past. I think the synod needs to study that idea out in detail to see if it has merit based on the way it has worked out for them so far.

    More from the same source

    Where have we heard that idea before?

    Now "welcome" could be the way that we "welcome prostitutes and pedophiles to come to church, repent of their life of sin and accept forgiveness and the new nature that is the gift to those who are - in Christ - 2Cor 5".

    But the that might not be the 'welcome" that the "Catholic gay-rights group" is talking about. Rather that is probably the 'welcome' the conservative Cardinals were already holding out as a solution.

    Which gets us to the issue of punishment for dissenters.

    in Christ,

    The father they get from the Bible - more strange becomes their news-making statements.

    So we are seeing today==1 Timothy 4
    False Teaching in the Last Days
    4 The Holy Spirit tells us in plain words that in the last days some people will turn away from the faith. They will listen to what is said about spirits and follow the teaching about demons. 2 Those who teach this tell it as the truth when they know it is a lie. They do it so much that their own hearts no longer say it is wrong. 3 They will say, “Do not get married. Do not eat some kinds of food.” But God gave these things to Christians who know the truth. We are to thank God for them. 4 Everything God made is good. We should not put anything aside if we can take it and thank God for it. 5 It is made holy by the Word of God and prayer.

    Article from which the Quote below is excerpted:Catholic News Agency:
    Vatican releases official English translation of synod's final report



    (*Actual Vatican Synid Report)English translation of Synod (pronounced:Sin-id) final report.

    While this might put it into context as an overall perspective the church holds. This article concerns the teachings in church doctrine as pertains to homosexuality and of course gay marriage:
