Wendelin Bucheli is a Catholic pastor in Bürglen, in the Swiss canton of Uri. In October 2014, Wendelin blessed a lesbian couple in the local church. As a consequence, he was fired by his boss, Bishop Vitus Huonder. After a massive public outcry and much media attention, Wendelin was finally allowed to stay on as a priest in Bürglen. In order to keep his job, he had to sign an official declaration, promising to abstain from same-sex benediction ceremonies in the future.
