Gay Pastoral Ministers in the Netherlands Publish Open Letter to Pope Francis

02/15/2019 | New Ways Ministry

Gay pastoral ministers in the Netherlands have published an open letter to Pope Francis protesting the Vatican’s ban on gay priests and claiming the Gospel’s credibility is imperiled by the Church’s attitude on homosexuality. The Working Group of Catholic Gay Pastors (WKHP), which represents more than forty gay priests, deacons, and lay ministers in the Netherlands, made the letter, dated October 9, 2018 and signed by chairperson Frans Bossink, public on its website this week. This release comes just ahead of the Vatican’s summit on clergy sexual abuse which begins next week.
