The tentative conclusion to be had from Ganswein remarks is Catholic moral teaching on sexuality and marriage is rather pointless as sexuality and its practice are "accidental". I see this as heretical.

It might be good to point out that as well as working for Pope Francis he remains - as far as I know - secretary to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
