Belgian Bishops Deny That "Blessing" Is "Blessing"

Fr Tommy Scholtes, spokesman for the Belgium’s bishops conference, denied that a proposal to "bless" homosexual concubinages "amounted to a blessing."

Scholtes fooled his audience by saying that the bishops only want to create a “point of contacts” for homosexuals including “an opportunity for homosexual couples to pray together, and for others to pray for them” (ApNews.com, September 20).

“But there is no blessing, no exchange of consent, there is nothing like a marriage,” Scholtes said.

In reality, the proposed text specifically asks “God” to “bless” a homosex liaison. In Flemish, “om God te vragen dat Hij dit engagement van liefde en trouw mag zegenen en bestendigen.”

The text clearly contains a blessing ceremony which contradicts the Bible, the Faith, reason, and real life.

Even homosexuals admit that - unlike in marriage where fidelity is fundamental - their lifestyle has little to do with “fidelity” but is about sexual promiscuity.

So for Fr Tommy Scholtes, 2+2=19. "It doesn't mean what you think it really means". They will use any amount of mental gymnastics to try to justify sinful behavior. Be spiritually prepared at all times....

I spoke with him on the phone. Should I post his number for the others?

Sounds like a bad joke/lie. What did he say?

Not a blessing, about accompaniment, not doctrinal.
Not a joke. I called the archdiocese of Brussels, got re-directed to him.
