Catholic bishops vote to soften stance toward divorcees, but stand firmly against gay marriage | National Post

Why is it that the media is claiming the Church has 'softened' her stance towards divorcees? There is NOTHING new in the Synod's closing document that wasn't part of her pastoral practice before it began. I really am befuddled by this. Anyone understand why the Synod is being presented this way? It seems to me as if it is a way to spin the results so as to paint the Church as being intolerant or abusive toward gay Catholics, putting the Bishops into the worst possible light. One can almost hear the critics saying "You changed the teaching for divorcees. Why not for gays?" But the fact is that NOTHING has changed for either group!!
