Quote of the Day

When two homosexuals take responsibility for one another, if they deal with each other in a faithful and long-term way, then you have to see it in the same way as heterosexual relationships.

That's quite a quote, and a quick Google search doesn't reveal anything particularly incendiary about the good cardinal.

One article I just found quibbled about whether the German in the quote translates to "the same way" or "similar way," but... Wow.

Thanks for this one!
