Edit: We know people don't like Michael Voris and his Catholic Network TV, and there are legitimate reasons for that, but he and his people continues to be truly brave and say things and attack figures in the hierarchy that many of his detractors don't do. What's more, he AT LEAST is effective. To many of you, this headline and story isn't news, but many of the actors haven't yet been named, and haven't been called to account for their frankly criminal malfeasance and misrepresentation.
We touched briefly upon this last week with respect to St. John's Abbey in Collegeville, where grieving parents called upon an evil Monastery to change its ways, and we also pointed out that the story didn't get a lot of traction, especially in the kosher Catholic Press. A few years back when we broke the story that the Abbey was hosting a naked retreat. The response was pretty impressive from Lifesite, ChurchMilitant and a large number of other bloggers around and about. As a result, the retreat was cancelled, and the one who planned it, Father Bob Pierson went on a one year sabbatical to an Anglican Monastery. [Since then, this aberrosexual enabler has been relocated to another "Benedictine" institution, which underscores the problem in miniature which troubles the Church as a whole throughout the world going up to the very top, including the Pope himself.]
We're familiar with the story Voris helped circulate about an aberrosexual in the New York Diocese who was living with a similarly afflicted man to the outrage of the laymen of that parish who eventually drove the parasite out of their parish, with Voris' help.
Now this story is taking on broader dimensions as Voris is moving to take on the entire Archdiocese, calling Cardinal Dolan to task:
Here’s the headline: As much as half of priests and bishops in the U.S. may homosexual. Now the details.
Back in 2000, just as news of the homosexual priest sex abuse crisis was beginning to break, the Kansas City Star did an in-depth exposé on a horrible topic: the large number of homosexual priests dying of AIDS.
The newspaper conducted extensive research into the related issues of AIDS and homosexuality within clerical ranks and religious communities.
The issue of the AIDS death aside (God rest their souls), it reveals the reality of homosexuality in the ranks of the ordained — and not just its presence, but its overwhelming presence.
