He criticized a video comment on the official website of the Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart: “There is a lack of a rite by which the church says to gay couples: ‘It is a good thing, your love is good.'”
Rottenburg (kath.net) The Head of Public Relations of the Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart, Eckhard Raabe, called for the establishment of a church wedding rite for gay couples. In a video comment published on the website of the diocese, the theologian states: “There is a lack of a rite by which the Church can say to homosexual couples: ‘It’s good, your love is good.'”
Raabe accuses the Church, though it preaches love, it suppresses diversity.
The reason for the language used by Raabe in his “Comment of the Week” is a report about two forty-four year old Italian nuns who left their order and were married in a civil ceremony in Turin.
