The November ceremony is to take place in Dublin, and it is expected that Archbishop Diarmuid Martin will preside. Up until now there had been much speculation as to why Archbishop Martin did not speak forcefully against gay marriage during the recent Irish gay marriage referendum, but his expected involvement in the Kasper/Marx wedding seems to provide a definitive answer.
Their upcoming nuptials may have profound ramifications for the Catholic Church, as Cardinal Kasper may be rethinking his position on the “divorced and remarried” receiving Holy Communion. “Now that I think about it,” he reportedly told a close confidant, “maybe adultery is wrong. I certainly don’t want Reinhard cheating on me!”
Moreover, in an equally stunning development, the happy couple have stated that they will not be using birth control.
