RC German synodal meeting supports blessing of same-sex partnerships

As reported in the WallStreet Journal:

At a meet­ing in Frankfurt, Ger­man church lead­ers voted 168 to 28, with five ab­sten­tions, to adopt a draft state­ment on sex­u­al­ity that in­cludes a res­o­lu­tion say­ing that “same-sex part­ner­ships who want to take the risk of an un­break­able com­mon life…should be able to see them­selves placed un­der the bless­ing of God.”

Currently the Church of England is engaged in a national discernment process called “Living in Love and Faith” from which a new teaching document on human sexuality is expected to be issued from the College of Bishops. An introduction is available here: https://youtu.be/g7A3wt0jqZM
