BREAKING: Cardinal Edwin O’Brien adds name to LifeSite petition against blessing of homosexual ‘couples’

 In a brief statement sent to LifeSiteNews via email, Cardinal Edwin O'Brien emphasized the 'ambiguous' nature of Fiducia Supplicans and warned it 'seriously undermines' the truth that those with homosexual inclinations are called to live chaste lives.

(LifeSiteNews) — Retired American Cardinal Edwin O’Brien has signed his name to LifeSite’s petition urging bishops to prohibit the blessing of homosexual “couples.”

Cardinal O’Brien offered his support after LifeSiteNews had emailed the petition to the bishops and cardinals of the Catholic Church. Over 22,000 people have now signed.

In a brief statement sent to LifeSiteNews via email, O’Brien, who retired in 2019 after serving as the head of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre in Rome since 2011, emphasized that as one of the prelates involved in the founding of Courage – a Catholic apostolate formed in 1980 to aid those suffering from same-sex attractions – he is particularly disappointed with the Vatican’s document Fiducia Supplicans as it “seriously undermines their pledge to live a life of virtue.”

Good for this Cardinal but do you notice that it is the already cancelled or retired clergy that seem to defend the faith the most. They do not have much to lose unless you are Cardinal Burke and have your apartment and salary, etc. taken from you as retribution for daring to question the narrative or speak the truth against it.

Thank you for visiting.
