Earlier this month, Monsignore Charamsa came out — and chose the lead-up to a synod (being held in Rome to discuss, among other things, homosexuality) to do it.

“We must think about all families,” he opined, “not only families like my (heterosexual) parents.”

The Vatican described his actions as “very serious and irresponsible” but insisted his dismissal had nothing to do with his homosexuality but was due to the timing of his announcement.
