No Surprise: Anti-Catholic German Synod Votes For "Priestesses,", Married Priests etc.
On Thursday, it approved a paper that aims at reducing the “power” of a diocesan bishop, in contradiction of Vatican II and the institution of the apostles by Christ.
On Friday morning the same ideologists voted (yes: 159; no: 26; abstentions: 7) to call on Francis to abolish celibacy and even to allow already ordained priests to marry. In the afternoon, they voted (yes: 174; no: 30; abstentions: 6) to call on Francis to introduce [invalid] ordinations of women. This vote was followed by a long smug applause.
Speakers at the Synod played on emotions by hyping their “state of shock” caused by the controversial Munich abuse report which also slanders Benedict XVI. These are the same people who only decades before considered the legalisation of pederasty part of "sexual liberation."
The results are not binding, not even for the anti-Catholic German Church Tax Church. They will be dealt with in a further meeting before the end of the Synod in 2023.
To put things into perspective: A vote over the question whether a layperson can "preside a valid Eucharist" would also have received a yes majority at the same Synod.
