From the only reliable source of Catholic news on the net, Eye of the Tiber:
Members at the Synod on the Family have entered into one of the most controversial subjects facing the Synod: how should the Church treat gay persons who divorce their same-sex partners and remarry without first obtaining permission from the Church.
Insiders at the Synod say that bishops were divided as to how to handle the “sticky” situation regarding homosexual couples that have divorced and remarried without first obtaining an annulment from the Church.
“The annulment process is quite laborious for those whose marriages the Church does not recognize,” said one Synod insider. “If one does not have an actual marriage, how then does he or she proceed with the annulment process so that they can once again receive communion? That is the crux of the matter.”
A spokesman for the Vatican told EOTT that a number of bishops had brought up completely doing away with what they considered “the antiquated notion of sin,” and allowing all members and non-members of the Catholic Church to receive communion.
“The idea is being proposed because no one should be excluded from the grace given when one receives communion,” the spokesman went on to say. “Let me rephrase that; not no one, but rather, most everyone should not be excluded. Those who committee such vile sins such as smoking, littering, and being heterosexual would incur latae sententiae. Naturally.”
PopeWatch, as a matter of public duty, now must note that the above is satire and humor. These days it could all too taken as a real news story from the Synod.
