In recent weeks, it's often been discussed, who is at this year's Catholic Day (25 to 29 may 2016) and who is not.
Now, a group seems to be particularly welcome and can not complain about lack of opportunities to appear: the homosexuals.
Especially pervasive are representatives of various local groups like "Network of Catholic Lesbians." Like in the bible work group, "Pray Psalms today - submit a Psalm" or in the workshop "With my God I shoot over walls - in work, spirituality in everyday life, is a source of strength for me or for everyday life. "
Since the Political must not be neglected, there is also a debate for an opening marriage to same-sex couples. In the panel discussion "Marriage for all? On the issue of equality between homosexual and heterosexual couples " speaks the openly gay Stefan Kaufmann, member (CDU) and Manuela Sabozin of the network of Catholic Lesbians in Essen.
In the workshop "Even lesbians and gay men get older. What is important, what is important to me" include representatives of the Association, "Homosexuals and Church" (HUK).
There is also the discussion "Coming out as a cross-ing. Experience between lesbian women," with the women of the "Network of Catholic Lesbians."
What role do lesbians in the Church apparatus best serve, "Professional service to the Church - as a lesbian woman exchange among lesbian women."
As a continuous supply there is "Center Rainbow," which oversees the clubs "Church Initiative from Below," "Network of Catholic Lesbians, " "Ecumenical group of homosexuals and Church." These groups are even organizing a church service.
At the event,"Anger at ProfX " the "Lesbian and Gay federation of Germany "will question gender stereotypes.
The working group "Homosexual and Church" will probably advertise about "Whoever stays true, changes. Spiritual people can not be bent."
Dr. Michael Brinkschröder of the European Forum of Christian LGBT groups will present "a different view of the Bible."
An "experience for gay men" is on offer in the event "Strong in Faith. Catholic. Homosexual." On the subject of "Homo- and heterosexual people together" we learn "to live in a relationship" in the workshop.
Constanze Körner, project manager of Rainbow families, deals with the subject of "How to live in rainbow families?"
Surely, especially progressive things are going on in "Gay and lesbian worship communities as a basic model."
Of course, the subject " transsexualism in the tension between faith and the Bible" at Catholic Day must not be missed.
That these concerns are madness and that such events are completely unnecessary, or even harmful to the faith, does not need any further description. The image is that the Catholic Church in Germany is offering, is desolate. It's a church that is completely losing its Catholic identity. It shows once again: The "Central Committee of German Catholics", the organizer of the Catholic Conference, is working to destroy the Catholic faith in Germany.
