BISHOPS CONFIRM CHURCH TEACHING ON HOMOSEXUALITY

          VATICAN (CWNews.com) -- Archbishop Eric D'Arcy of Hobart, Australia, reaffirmed Church teachings on the intrinsic immorality of homosexual acts after a meeting of English-speaking bishops in San Francisco last week.

          Bishops from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the English-speaking countries of Oceania had met with Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and other officials of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith for three days of reflection on controversial theological problems.

          The moral status of homosexuality figures prominently among the issues which bishops must confront in their dioceses, Archbishop D'Arcy reported. He lamented that there are some tendencies to approach the issue of homosexuality without taking into account the clear teachings of the Church, which in turn are based on the clear indications of the Bible. He concluded: "The Church teaches that homosexual acts cannot contribute to the authentic welfare of the human person."
