Malta: Bishop who described gay unions as a ‘grave moral act’ meets with gay Catholics
The Auxiliary Bishop of Malta, who warned that same-sex unions were a “grave moral act”, has met with gay Catholics.
Charles Scicluna attended an event for IDAHOT (International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia) on Saturday in Malta
Drachma LGBTI, a Catholic LGBT group, organised the event to coincide with their tenth anniversary.
“Drachma is a group largely inspired by the Christian tradition, values and spirituality but is open to people coming from different religious traditions or none at all. Drachma also explores ecumenical and inter-faith spaces,” the group said.
Bishop Scicluna along with a number of other priests were joined by dignitaries from Maltese political parties in support of Drachma and their work with LGBT people.
