Bishops in Germany have declared that homosexuality is “normal” as the Catholic Church there begins reviewing certain reforms. The Commission for Marriage and Family of the German Bishops’ Conference agreed that homosexuality is a “normal form of sexual predisposition.” They have also pledged to review topics such as the sacrament of ordination and marriage, which may lead to them endorsing same-sex marriage, and ordaining openly gay bishops. They also agreed that adultery may not always “be qualified as grave sin.” But agreement couldn’t be met everywhere.

A press release detailing some of the changes said: “There was also agreement that the sexual preference of man expresses itself in puberty and assumes a hetero- or homosexual orientation.
