On June 16, Pope Francis approved a third batch of episcopal delegates elected by their peers to the Ordinary Synod of Bishops to be held in October of this year.
However the Pope also ratified the inclusion of Bishop Johan Bonny [!] among the delegates. Due to his heterodox position [!] on moral issues his inclusion among the delegates is already causing expressions of perplexity [!] even on Catholic websites that so far have resisted criticizing the current pontificate [!] . Bonny [!] joins the small but high-profile list of liberal-leaning and already-approved delegates to this year's Synod such as Bishop Jean-Paul Vesco OP of Oran (Algeria); Shadow Synod participants Bishop Jean-Marie Lovey of Sion (Switzerland), Archbishop Georges Pontier and Bishop Jean-Luc Brunin of France, and the three German delegates (Cardinal Marx, Archbishop Koch and Bishop Bode); Cardinal-Patriarch Manuel Jose Macario do Nascimento Clemente of Lisbon (Portugal), Archbishop Gabriel Charles Palmer-Buckle of Accra (Ghana), Cardinal Mario Poli of Buenos Aires (Argentina), Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin (Ireland), and Cardinal Vincent Nichols of Westminster (England & Wales).
