Gay theologian James Alison, sees positive results for gay Catholics, in the synod’s failure to address the issue:
The place of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Catholics in the church family was the controversial issue the synod chose to avoid. Does the minimal reference to them in the final document confirm deadlocked thinking, or offer hopeful grounds for change?
Alison’s conclusion: definite hope for change!
