A Catholic Bishop in Favor of Gay Relationships? - by Michael A. Jones - May 07, 2010 – Gay Rights /

Imagine a Roman Catholic Bishop saying that the Church should rethink its position on gay relationships. Then imagine this Catholic Bishop being a former student of Pope Benedict XVI. Now imagine that this Bishop is on track to perhaps someday be Pope. Sound like the stuff made of fantasy? Photo 

Think again. Such is the story of Austrian Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, who made some rather shocking comments to the UK Tablet, a Catholic newspaper in the country, that may just challenge the conventional wisdom that there's no hope for the institutional Catholic Church when it comes to LGBT issues.

According to the Tablet, Cardinal Schönborn said that the Church's mishandling of its global sex abuse scandal was appalling, and took to task some senior religious leaders for treating the scandal as a small blip. Then he denounced some Church leaders for blaming the sex abuse scandal on gays, and said that the Church has to have a huge "Come to Jesus" moment when it comes to its position on gay relationships. Read more by Michael A.
