RC Bishops Showcase ‘Non-Binary’ Youth at Opening of German Synodal Path

Dramatically defying Pope Francis’ conservative stance on gender ideology, the German bishops have caused a sensation by inviting a person identifying as “non-binary” to address the opening assembly of the controversial “synodal path.”

But the politically correct attempt at including a gender non-conforming speaker backfired on the bishops.

Mara Klein, who began her brief speech by identifying herself as “non-heterosexual” and “non-binary,” almost immediately lashed out at the bishops, labelling them “an association of perpetrators” of sexual abuse in the Church.

“I hope we feel uncomfortable. We have every reason to be,” the 23-year-old woman from the diocese of Magdeburg told the 230 delegates meeting on the first day of the synod in Frankfurt on Jan. 31.

“As a young person in our Church, I feel uncomfortable standing here and knowing all those in the structure has caused the results, which the MHG study only emphasized again, are gathered around me,” Klein said, referring to a 2014–2018 study by academics at the universities of Mannheim, Heidelberg and Gießenby which found that 3,677 children and juveniles fell victim to sexual abuse perpetrated by 1,670 clerics between 1946 and 2014.
