In the last 45 seconds of this video clip, Bishop Bruno is asked by a reporter about a specific same-sex blessing that was performed in his diocese “yesterday.”
So let’s recap. Same sex blessings do not occur in his diocese with his permission—but since he’s already let the clergy know that they can perform acts of pastoral care, he doesn’t need to know or give his permission.
So then, to the New York Times reporter he states—“I’ll look into it”—as if it’s an unusual or unacceptable thing for same-sex blessings to occur in his diocese.
But . . . why would he need to “look into it” when all that the clergy are doing are what he has told them they can do which is perform acts of “pastoral care” which include same-sex blessings.
I am amazed at this pretence. Simply amazed. If what his diocese is doing is a “new thing” of the Holy Spirit, then why the pretence? Why the shame about what the diocese is doing?
