Homosexuals organize against Berlin's incoming archbishop

Catholic World News - July 08, 2011

Gay activists in Berlin are already mounting opposition to Archbishop-elect Rainer Maria Woelki, because of the prelate’s public statements against homosexuality.

The new archbishop, who was appointed last week, will not be installed until August 27. But secular leaders in Berlin have questioned whether a Church leader who “openly has a problem with gay people” can survive there, and have denounced his “backward” religious beliefs.

    It's time to go on offense and organize against a minority gay ideology seeking to impose this mindset on the rest of society.
