“[I]t is a good thing for the child to know that he has a father and a mother”; [it must be] “made clear that matrimony between a man and a woman is a specific and fundamental institution in the history of mankind. This does not prevent that other forms of union between two persons may be recognized“. – Fr. Lombardi

And statements, he said, are only one part of it. “It’s another thing to encourage people to actively manifest their desire that the moral law be respected,” he said. Even in a “pluralistic” society the moral law is universal and can and must be expressed in law, he explained.
Somebody in Rome had better issue some corrections soon and with a very heavy hand.
I can tell you that if Catholic bloggers were in charge, things would get sorted very quickly.
