Father Nelson Medina, a Dominican priest who holds a doctorate in fundamental theology, has harshly criticized the president of the German Bishops’ Conference, Bishop Georg Bätzing, who persists in supporting the gay agenda.
Medina, a native of Colombia, is an influencer in the Spanish-speaking world with a presence on Twitter, YouTube, and TikTok. He has 63,000 followers on Twitter and 442,000 subscribers on YouTube.
In a press conference in Rome following the ad limina visit of the German bishops, Bätzing told journalists that there was no departure from Catholicism intended by the Synodal Way. Instead, he said, its supporters wanted to remain Catholic, “but we want to be Catholic in a different way.”
The German bishop also said that he will not prevent the blessing of homosexual couples, something that occurred en masse in May of this year despite the explicit prohibition of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith, which was issued in a 2021 Responsum.
