‘Schism Plain and Simple’ – German Catholic Bishops Vote to Bless Same-Sex Unions
German Catholic bishops have voted to bless same-sex marriages as part of the German Church’s Synodal Assembly, with blessings set to be introduced in March of 2026. Some have called the move schismatic.
The Synodal Assembly on the Reform of the Catholic Church voted in Frankfurt, Germany, to bless same-sex couples on Friday, with 176 of the 202 assembly members voting for the proposal, including two-thirds of the bishops in attendance.
According to a report from the newspaper Donaukurier, same-sex blessings have already been going on in the German church — but were in a canonical grey area and took place in private, rather than openly in churches.
