CWN Editor's Note: Philadelphia’s Archbishop Charles Chaput has said that calls for liturgical ceremonies to bless homosexual unions are a “cause of serious concern.” Noting that the acceptance of same-sex unions by Church leaders in one area would inevitably have an impact elsewhere, Archbishop Chaput wrote in his archdiocesan newspaper that “any such ‘blessing rite’ would cooperate in a morally forbidden act.” It would, be added, “undermine the Catholic witness on the nature of marriage and the family.”
