ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi has issued a statement on Msgr. Krzystof Charamsa, the scandalous priest who yesterday declared his open homosexuality and demanded the Church change Her teachings.

With regard to the declarations and interview given by Msgr. Krzystof Charamsa it should be observed that, notwithstanding the respect due to the events and personal situations, and reflections on the issue, the decision to make such a pointed statement on the eve of the opening of the Synod appears very serious and irresponsible, since it aims to subject the Synod assembly to undue media pressure. Msgr. Charamsa will certainly be unable to continue to carry out his previous work in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the Pontifical universities, while the other aspects of his situation shall remain the competence of his diocesan Ordinary.
