CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Johann Bonny of Antwerp has voiced his “intellectual and moral incomprehension” of the Vatican’s statement that the Church cannot bless same-sex unions, saying that the statement from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith does not “reach the intellectual level of high school.” Bishop Bonny said that the statement was a “shame for my Church,” and apologized for it.

    "...does not 'reach the intellectual level of high school.'" Typical denigration tactic of the political left. If he finds Church teaching incomprehensible, he should go back to school at an orthodox Catholic institution.
