Vatican is quiet but concerned about German reforms
Evert’s comment: This is why churches usually split on same-sex marriage

German Catholics not able to reform church fundamentally
German Catholics asked the Pope to think again about the ordination of women in the priesthood. They also expressed a wish for more room for homosexuality. But, they were unable of getting the entire assembly to support a progressive text on sexual morality.
