Zimbabwe Bishops Reject Blessing Same-Sex Unions

The Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops’ Conference issued on December 22 an official pastoral statement clarifying the content of DDF document Fiducia Supplicans, since they recognize it to be causing “anxiety and even confusion” among the faithful.

President of the Zimbabwe Catholic Bishop Conference (ZCBC) Bishop Paul Horan and the six other Zimbabwean bishops, including two currently retired, signed the ZCBC official statement.

Here’s the punch line:”we instruct pastors to desist from actions that may be deemed as the blessing at same sex unions bringing confusion and even scandal to our people.” Full statement can be read below.
