Women’s ordination, transgender ideology move forward at German Synodal Way

March 13, 2023

CWN Editor's Note: After the German Synodal Path approved same-sex blessings, the mixed body of laity and prelates approved documents on “Dealing with gender diversity” and “Women in sacramental ministry: Perspectives for the universal Church dialogue.”

96% of participants approved the document on gender diversity, which calls for the ordination of the transgendered. Among the bishops present, the vote was 38-7 in favor, with 12 abstentions.

Likewise, only 10 bishops voted against the document calling for the ordination of women to the diaconate.

The March 9-11 tweets of Jonathan Liedl, who covered the event for the Register, offer an insight into the dynamics of the event as it happened.

    Thanks to Francis and his "synodal way," the Church in Germany has gone completely off the rail. This will likely lead to a schism, with a question: which group in the Church is Catholic and Apostolic, and which is schismatic? The saddest part is that many souls will be mislead and lost in the process. What a mess!
