No sooner than I declared I would be taking a break from commenting on the " goings on" in my Church for a while when this news appears from Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone !! (shown below left)
I have put a link to Fr. Austin's blog A Concord Pastor Comments
where you can read about the latest dismal gaffe and there is also a link here to a sensible balanced response from James Martin S.J.
Thank you Fr Austin for your monitoring on this.
Thankfully the Vatican too seems to have distanced itself from the remarks as it's damage limitation team must be working overtime these days and also the Catholic Church in England and Wales has shown some sense at last in quickly refuting Bertone's rant : See BBC report from today.
This response from The Guardian Newspaper is also worthy of a read as are the readers comments that follow on from the article.
And finally my own view for what its worth ;
The One and Only thing that Cardinal Bertone should be bothered about is that there's a connection between involvement in the Roman Catholic Church and child abuse and he should not be blaming homosexuality for that.
