CWN Editor's Note: During an ecumenical prayer service, Archbishop Heiner Koch of Berlin “asked forgiveness for the Church’s discrimination against people because of their sexual orientation” and described it as an “unholy line of tradition.”
“The archbishop said each parish would have commissioners to counter such discrimination,” the report continued. “He pledged to intervene personally if employees of the archdiocese were threatened with consequences under Church labor law on the grounds of their sexual orientation.”
