May Catholics Attend a “Gay Wedding” for Pastoral Reasons?
This was a real email Fr. Nix received. His response is as follows verbatim.
Hi, Fr. David Nix,
I asked three local pastors in the area I live in in NJ about what Catholics should do if they are invited to same sex marriages. They all said that if it is a close relative that you should attend so as not to lose the relationship or bond with that relative. Does the Catholic Church have any dogma on this? Thank you, Karen
Those priests are wrong. You would be committing grave mortal sin in participating in the attempted “marriage” of same-sex people
