Before the Bishops' Synod: Bishop Huonder on the Truth and Majority

Bishop Vitus Huonder
(Chur) On June 21, 2015, Bishop Vitus Huonder of Chur said in his sermon: "majorities are not necessarily decisive for the knowledge of the truth and above all for the way of righteousness, on the contrary ...
Very often it is good and right to belong to the minority, yes, to an insignificant minority! Take the words of St. Thomas More speaking to our life in the speech he uttered before his execution, and by which we are guided always afterwards: 'I die a faithful servant of the king, but first I am servant of God'.
Let us pray that the Synod Fathers will be led by this spirit and  remain conscious in the face of pressure from certain lobbies and ideologies, that they are above all, God's servants. Let us pray to Saint Thomas More and the saints, who shared the same fate that they stand as intercessors at the Synod. Amen. "

  1. Looking at the voting pattern in the 2014 synod the support for Kasper was about 10% or less. In this case it might be best to be with the majority!

    1. There is no such thing as a "gay" person, only persons who choose to identify themselves in that way. It is subjective, not objective and persons are free to reject such self-identification at any time, as some do.

    2. Are you God?
