The Catholic Church can never ordain women as priests. It may decide to have married priests which we have to some extent anyway. It will never permit same sex marriage. Contraception is not permissable because we know it can lead to abortion & is abortificient in some cases.
The Family Synod is important for discussing these issues. Parents need help to be able to nurture & respect their same sex attracted children. I appreciate Cardinal Nichols approach & that of Pope Francis. I don't relate to Cardinal Burke's approach.
