Blessing Same-Sex Marriage Is Against God’s Law – Nigerian Catholic Bishops by TemplarLandry: 5:47pm On Dec 21, 2023
The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, CBCN, says blessing same-sex marriage is against God’s law.

The Nigerian bishops, who were reacting to the controversy arising from Pope Francis’ directive that Catholic priests can bless same-sex couples, also said blessing same-sex marriage is contrary to the teachings of the Church, the laws of the country and the cultural sensibilities of Nigerians.

The bishops said this in a statement made available to newsmen on Thursday in Ibadan.

The statement was signed by CBCN President and Secretary, Most Rev. Lucius Ugorji and Most Rev. Donatus Ogun, respectively, and other executives.

The bishops insisted that the teachings of the Catholic Church on marriage remained the same.

“There is, therefore, no possibility in the Church of blessing same-sex unions and activities; that will go against God’s law, the teachings of the church, the laws of our nation and the cultural sensibilities of our people.

“We thank all the priests for their accompaniment of married couples, asking them to continue in all they do to sustain the sacrament of Holy Matrimony and never to do anything that will detract from the sacredness of this sacrament,” the Nigerian Catholic Bishops said.

A split is imminent. No more Roman Catholic Church in Africa.
Brace up for The African Catholic Church.
Only Apostle Peter the Rock (the 1st Pope) was a true follower of God.


I'm starting to believe the Conspiracy Theory which holds that the Papacy is devilish.
Truly, by their fruits we shall know them.

Gayism is a heresy.

Gayism is against the natural order.

Gayism is anti-Christ.

First of all, who said same-sex union should be blessed?

The Pope is being misunderstood and misinterpreted. The Pope simply said individuals who are in a same-sex union can be blessed, just as a thief can be blessed. The Pope never said the union itself should be blessed. It is important to understand that to be blessed in this context means to be prayed for.

Answer these three questions:

1.
If a thief or a murderer asks for prayer, should the Church offer the prayer?

2.
If your answer is no, explain why. But if your answer is yes, explain why the Church should not pray for a lesbian or a homosexualist who wants to be prayed for.

3.
Does praying for a thief who asks for the prayer mean supporting theft? If yes, explain how. If no, how does praying for a lesbian or a homosexualist mean supporting lesbianism and homosexuality?

If you cannot answer these questions, you have no fact against the Pope's statement concerning same-sex union.

Pope Benedict needs to be born again. He needs an encounter with the Holy Spirit.

Now that he's vegetative and about to leave, he wants to turn the world upside down by endorsing immorality.

Absolutely correct 💯, thank you for speaking out and on time. God's word concerning marriage is for a man and a woman to marry nothing else.

This pope should have legalize the catholic priest to get married instead of approving same sex marriage.

Which Apostle Peter? He was never a Catholic Pope. Peter married and Jesus healed his mother inlaw.
