Father Peter McCarthy: "We must move from a narrow view of doctrine to a more comprehensive view of looking at doctrine."
Speaking at Clonard Monastery in Belfast last week, Redemptorist Fr. Peter McCarthy said that Church teaching on homosexuality must evolve, hinting at what's to come at the 2018 World Meeting of Families in Ireland.
In August, a parade of gay-friendly Church leaders will gather in Dublin to push the LGBT agenda.
In addition to homosexualist Jesuit Fr. James Martin, the event will include cardinals like Blase Cupich of Chicago, Joseph Tobin of Newark, Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C. and Vincent Nichols of Westminster, England.
But defenders of Church teaching on the family are organizing a parallel conference as an alternative for faithful Catholics.
As leftists plot theological revolution in Dublin, in nearby Ballsbridge, the Conference of Catholic Families will focus on the encyclical Casti Connubii, which reinforced Church teaching on contraception a generation before Humanae Vitae.
Speakers will include orthodox leaders Cdl. Raymond Burke, Bp. Athanasius Schneider and Fr. Thomas Weinandy.
A project of the Lumen Fidei Institute, the Conference of Catholic Families seeks to dispel growing confusion and reaffirm Church teaching on marriage and sexuality.
