The Vatican continues to stand against Freemasonry in an article in BBC News about a French priest who was relieved from his parish duties for being an active member of the Grand Orient de France lodge in Megeve. While the penalty is not final, Father Vesin sparked his own controversy after saying that he favours marriage for some priests and refusing to condemn same-sex marriage.

Father Pascal Vesin was ordered by his bishop to cease his work in the Alpine resort of Megeve, the parish said.
Bishop Yves Boivineau had warned Father Vesin about his "active membership" in the Grand Orient de France lodge.
Freemasonry has been condemned as anti-Christian and anti-clerical by various Popes through history.
