CWN Editor's Note: The vice-president of the German Catholic bishops’ conference has suggested giving new attention to same-sex couples and asking “how do we accompany them pastorally and liturgically?” Bishop Franz-Joseph Bode said that in discussions of pastoral care for homosexual couples, Church leaders should reflect: “Is there not so much positive and good and right, so that we have to be more just?”

    All of this talk about "accompanying" people who obviously have no interest in following the teachings of the Church reminds me of an old saying: Never try to teach a pig how to sing. It is a waste of your time and it annoys the pig.
