More cardinals and bishops cave to SS unions

Sandro Magister, "Vatican Diary / Six more votes for 'gay' unions" (www.chiesa, June 10, 2013) -- including Archbishop Piero Marini, president of the pontifical committee for Eucharistic congresses and formal master of papal ceremonies; Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, president of the pontifical council for the family; Austrian Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, archbishop of Vienna, who afterward corrected himself; Colombian Cardinal Rubén Salazar Gómez, archbishop of Bogotà, this latter forced to make a rapid retraction before he received the cardinal's biretta in November of 2012; and, of course, Cardinal Godfried Danneels, archbishop emeritus of Mechelen-Brussells, and Vatican spokesman, Fr. Federico Lombardi.

As our correspondent on retainer comments from an eastern seaboard city that knows how to keep its secrets: "I continue to be exasperated, to put it kindly, at the retreat to: 'Marriage, of course, must be maintained tobe between a man and a woman,' while the same voices bend over backwards to affirm the domestication of homosexuality."

This is the EPCUSA fifteen years ago, exactly. Troublesome to say the least.

Exactly. AmChurch going the way of all flesh. And that's hardly a metaphor.
