The “Synodal Path“ in the Catholic church of Germany has allegedly been set up in 2019 to deal with the scandal of sexual abuse within the church. The “Synodal Assembly” of 250 members consisted of 67 German bishops, representatives of lay organisations and selected individuals. There is no canonical legitimacy of the Synodal Way’s freely created institutions or of the resolutions it adopted. Nevertheless, they are implemented in the dioceses. This paper deals with the complete abolition of Catholic sexual morality by 90 % of the German bishops. The cross has been exchanged with the rainbow flag.
