Same-sex marriage: Catholic teaching doesn’t change – Bishops



The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria have stated their stance on the recent pronouncement of the Pope on same-sex marriage, noting that it does not in any way change the Catholic Church’s teaching on marriage.

According to Tribune, the President of CBCN, Bishop Lucius Iwejuru Ugorji and the Secretary, Bishop Donatus Ogun, made their stance known in a statement.

The Bishops noted that the Declaration by the Pope seeks to explained the different forms of blessing that can be given to persons and objects in the Catholic Church, including the possibility of blessing persons in irregular unions.

They said this in response to the Fiducia Supplicans released by the Vatican which has created confusion among Christians and the Catholic faithful.
