Vatican Stands Firm On Same-Sex Blessings

The Vatican is defending its move to bless same-sex couples after pushbacks from bishops who called the move heretical.

The Vatican said it is vital that all bishops’ conferences respect the decision made by Pope Francis last month.

In a five-page statement on Thursday, the Holy See’s office to safeguard doctrinal orthodoxy, insisted that blessing same-sex couples is not heresy, though it said it understood that some bishops needed more time to adjust to the change.

But it added that there is no room to distance themselves doctrinally from the pope’s declaration about blessings.
