German bishops cannot agree on labour law changes

German bishops have, for now, tabled a reform of Church labour law that would allow homosexual employees in a relationship and remarried Catholics to work in Church-run institutions.

The bishops postponed the decision until April 2015 after a minority of conservative bishops resisted the change.

They were also impeded by a federal court ruling that supported current Church laws.

The Catholic Church is Germany’s second largest employer and employees are required to adhere to lifestyles consistent with Church teaching.
