With the open rebellion of the German Catholics over the issue of blessing same sex unions, and plenty of other Catholics who sympathize, is the Catholic Church on the verge of formal schism?

I don’t think so–and here’s why: For a formal schism to take place the dissenters have to have enough guts to declare the schism and start their own church or the pope needs to have enough guts to kick them out.

We are not living in the sixteenth century. The heretics of today don’t have the guts to go it alone and the authorities in the hierarchy (many of whom sympathize with the German liberal point of view) don’t have “excommunication” in their vocabulary.
