Even worse, Marx is president of the German bishops' conference. Cardinal Marx is using his position to mastermind a schism. The Bear's heart goes out to the faithful Catholics of Germany.
William Oddie of the Catholic Herald says in a piece today, "German bishops have declared independence from Rome on the issue of same-sex marriage. How far will the rot go?"
A woman who runs a Caritas day-care center lost her job when she announced she was going to go through a sham marriage with another woman. It didn't take long for the firing to be overturned by Church officials. (Only the dioceses of Passau, Regensburg, and Eichstatt have declined to adopt the new, immoral rules.)
Oddie also notes that most German bishops want to implement Cardinal Kasper's scheme for awarding communion as a prize to the divorced and remarried.
Cardinal Marx has previously stated, "Here I stand. I can do no other." Sorry, that was Martin Luther, another unfaithful German who caused untold mischief. Marx actually said, "We are not a branch of Rome."
Not a branch of Rome? If you are not a branch of Rome, Herr Marx, neither are you a bishop! Whatever legitimacy you have derives ultimately from Rome. This is rank Gallicanism. That name insults the French, and the Bear would call it Marxism, except another disreputable German took it first.
Not content to ruin souls in Germany, the Germans and their Rhine Alliance II will attempt to poison every parish in the world at the ill-conceived Synod on the Family in October. To see how far from God this Synod is, notice that it quickly became a Synod on Sexual Perversion and Divorce. In other words, it is mired in pathology, and doesn't care two cents for the challenges ordinary families face. This is the Church we get, thanks to flimsy clerics like Cardinal Marx and Pope Francis (who continues to send mixed signals).
The Bears are against you, Cardinal Marx. Go to the zoo and see. They will all turn their backs on you.
