Gay Unions: Banner in St. Peter’s Square asks Francis for clarification

Austrian Catholic Alexander Tschugguel took Vatican police by surprise Saturday afternoon as the “Pachamama slayer” unfurled a massive banner in St. Peter’s Square asking Pope Francis for “clarity on same-sex unions.”

Tschugguel led a band of faithful Catholics from Castel Sant’Angelo — where the Catholic convert had dumped five Pachamama idols into the Tiber River during the Amazon Synod — to the Vatican in protest against the pontiff’s repudiation of Catholic teaching.

As over 50 Catholics knelt praying the Rosary in front of St. Peter’s Basilica, hundreds of onlookers gathered to witness the demonstration.

A veteran Vaticanist who was at the scene told Church Militant he’d never seen anything like it before and commented how long police took to clear the protest.

“On a previous occasion when a much smaller banner was raised, police ordered it taken down in less than a minute,” he remarked. “Today, it took them over 15 minutes to bring the demonstration to a halt.”

In an interview at Castel Sant’Angelo, Church Militant asked Tschugguel why he was asking for clarity when the pontiff was on record declaring his support for gay civil unions on multiple occasions.

Tschugguel said he wanted to clarify if the pontiff was seeking to opt for the lesser evil of same-sex civil unions in the face of the greater evil of gay “marriage.”

But LGBT activists all over the world were claiming that “this is the first step in changing the doctrine of the Catholic Church regarding homosexual relationships and we hope to know this is not what the Holy Father meant to say,” Tschugguel emphasized.
