Belgian priest presides at gay 'marriage' ceremony

February 24, 2010

A Belgian Catholic priest has stirred up a scandal by presiding at a homosexual "marriage" ceremony in a Catholic church at Liege. Father Germain Dufour, a Capuchin priest who has been a Green Party activist, drew a rebuke from the Belgian bishops' conference, whose spokesman said that the same-sex ceremony "leads to confusion."

    In a Catholic church?! What an abomination! I recommend an immediate anatomy check on ALL bishops.

    Sad & disgraceful. What are Fr Dufour & others like him trying to do to the Church...we neither need nor want this dissent; we have enough! Does this man want to stand for Christ as he has vowed? If so, leading people down this destructive path is not the way to do so. If not, he needs to get out now or be booted out - the Bishops' Conference response can barely be called a "rebuke". It's nothing more than a mere whimper - they need to get serious about this issue NOW!
