Hang with me there will be two incidents that I will touch-on happening in two parts of the world. The first is the pending scandal involving the homosexual, atheist prostitute in Italy and his dossier that includes many Roman Catholic Priests. And the Saginaw, Michigan priest sex scandal and cover-up that is about to explode.
First the homosexual, atheist prostitute. Even he, an atheist, sees the monumental hypocrisy of these gay priests, who have promised celibacy which implies chastity, paying for sex and also living a life of homosexual activity with one another. As the icing on this morally decaying cake he had a lot of trouble getting any bishop to acknowledge this filth when he came forward. Coming forward would cost this prostitute business and still he is ignored by the bishops. Charged with hating the Church and causing scandal. UNBELIEVABLE!
Now let’s jump from Italy to Michigan and the diocese of Saginaw. Again it seems like it is involving homosexual priests. What part of chastity is so complicated that these men don’t understand it? I will try to help. NO SEX!!!! Maybe it is because I have very low energy but I think living a double life must be exhausting.
The diocese has said that they will fully cooperate with the police investigation. The police say that has not happened. Now we have other male individuals coming forward with charges that other priests have been sexually inappropriate with them over the years. Now that the widow is opened to let the fresh air and sunshine in all will be revealed…hopefully. What do the personnel files show? Did the bishop know if his predecessors covered for priests with complaints of a sexual nature? Did Bishop Cistone cover for priests with complaints of a sexual nature?
This is from the revised edition of Outlines of the Catholic Faith, it is applicable to all Catholics; “The theological virtue of Faith, a gift given by God, enables us to believe in God and believe all that he has said and revealed to us, including all that the Church teaches.” Of course the people of the Church believe erroneous things because the clergy, including the bishops, do not teach the true faith or live that faith.
Cling to Him.
