(ANSA) – VATICAN CITY, OCTOBER 24 – In the Kingdom of God “no one is excluded: even the divorced and remarried, even homosexuals, everyone. The Kingdom of God is not an exclusive club.

It opens its doors to everyone, without discrimination. “Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, president of COMECE (EU bishops) said this in an interview with L’Osservatore Romano.

“Many of our brothers and sisters tell us that, whatever the origin and cause of their sexual orientation, they certainly haven’t chosen it. They are not ‘bad apples'”. On the blessing of gay couples: “Do you think God can ever ‘say-evil’ about two people who love each other?”.

For the archbishop of Luxembourg “our pastoral care speaks to a man who no longer exists. We must be able to proclaim the Gospel, and make the Gospel understand, to the man of today who mostly ignores it. This implies a great openness. on our part, and also our willingness, while firm in the Gospel, to allow ourselves to be transformed too “. (HANDLE).
