How different might Saint John’s had been if monks like Father Jerome Tupa left the monastery to pursue their own selfish pleasures and allowed individuals such as these two men, who were called to monastic life, remain! How many good men did Father Tupa drive from religious life?The former monk himself writes:
“… my memories of those days are negative ones. There certainly seemed to be a great deal of ‘sexual’ tension and many of the monks seemed to have agendas aside from monastic brotherhood. As a young man and monk I ended up very confused about the whole experience. Upon leaving the monastery all those years ago I have never returned to the Catholic church. Although still a ‘believer’ I’ve just never gone back.”

|You Can't Stop Kreuz.net.|
The pseudo-Christian website kreuz.net is off the net. It may be a success for the activists who have been proceeding against the homophobia and racism of the site.
The agitating website kreuz.net is offline. The previous domain is no longer unavailable since Sunday afternoon.
The coordinator of the initiative Stoppt Kreuz.net, David Berger, sees this as a reaction incidental to definite public pressure. He told the Cologne Stadt-Anzeiger that there are thre conceivable possibilities for this, that the site is now offline: the operators are going under cover for a few weeks and hope to build a media storm, they are planning a change of server, or they are planing a completely new structure under a new name.
Following the articles related to the deceased actor Dirk Bach, which showed the clear disposition of homophobia, the campaigne of Bruno Gmunder Verlags have offered an award of 15,000 Euro for juristically usable information about the figures behind the site. In the meantime there are at least half a dozen names suspects being investigated and given to the Attorney General in Berlin. It has also engaged the Attorney General in Vienna for popular incitement (Volksverhetzung).
Those who are responsible for kreuz.net have not been revealed yet. The German Catholic Church has renewed its statement distancing themselves. As Spiegel recently reported, there are in any case at least two dozen authors with an ecclesiastical back ground active on the site, among them priests, church employees and at least one religion instructor.
The site has been suspected for a long time by Church authorities, as the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitutional observes the site. As the Suddeutsche.de reports the President of Protection of the Constitution, Heinz Fromm, wrote in response to Volker Beck: "In so far as the articles as well as the commentary from this internet presence is significantly known for its Homophobic, Islamophobic and anti-Semetic expressions, necessitates an extremely aggressive statement."
