Doesn't Violating The Eight Commandment Send You To Hell?
Unless you're the Vicar General of the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis... then it's ok

WARNING!! Harsh language alert. If you have virgin ears, a limp wrist, protruding hemorrhoids, pattern baldness, are lactose intolerant, etc, etc, you may want to pass on this post.

Roll up your trouser legs... the bullshit's getting deep the the Roman Protestant Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis. Vicar General Father Kevin McDonough stated: "I don't believe in this archdiocese there has ever been an active subculture of homosexual priests who were sexually active and justifying their behavior."

Hold on... back the truck up. I've never personally been backstroking in a pool of shit, but I think the good folks in St. Paul-Minneapolis are about to.

Father McDonough's public assertion was surprising especially since his own brother Professor William McDonough, a priest (active as such at least until 1998) in the diocese, is on public record going against Church teaching on homosexuality. At The Society of Christian Ethics, professor McDonough convened the "Gay and Lesbian Issues Interest Group sessions". In 2001, he presented the paper "Toward a MacIntyrean ethic of same-sex life partnerships". In an issue of Review for Religious he authored "Acknowledging The Gift Of Gay Priestly Celibacy."

Moreover, there is definitely a hornet's nest among clergy in the diocese regarding the Church's teaching on homosexuality. In February 2006, 27 priests of the diocese sent a letter to the bishop saying his support of the marriage amendment was a scandal and act of discrimination, but the archdiocese is unwilling to release the names of the priests who signed the letter. What a shocker, huh?

A week later, over 130 staff and faculty at the Catholic University of St Thomas protested against the administration with a letter stating "the love, commitment and monogamy" of a lesbian couple as "no less real because they are not married."

On Ash Wednesday, 2006, a St. Paul priest who objected to the sexualization of children in the diocesan touching program was silenced by what the "tough" nun in charge promised would be a "two by four" from (you guessed it) Fr. Kevin McDonough.

In 2004, the Vatican intervened in the archdiocese to have a parish pull 'gay pride' promotions from it's website.

I'm stunned that the arrogance of of these wolves in sheeps clothing. The blatantly obvious is staring everyone in the face, yet they feign innocence.

Our Lady of Akita was exactly right when she said; "The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other priests). Churches and altars will be sacked. The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord."

"The demon will be especially implacable against the souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them."

Fr. McDonough, I'll come out and say it... you're a damn liar.

But the Archbishop says that you're lacking in charity, and need to use this Lenten season to consider the respect due to the successors of the Apostles, and, presumably, their lying servants.

What a laugh, he doth protest too much.

I bet there is not one diocese in this country that can make that claim. I'm sure that even in dioceses who have had a good bishop for a good number of years, like Lincoln, NE can't say that truthfully. It's all just a matter of to what degree.

I am not ready to call him a liar, but I think it is very interesting that in a diocese with an abundance of homosexuality in the priesthood, that he would say such a thing. I was a seminarian up there before entering the Dominicans and there was at least 1 priest that came out of the closet while I was in studies. Others were exposed in other ways.

Op-ed: This issue of homosexuality in the priesthood is getting on my nerves. How can anyone reconcile Biblical teaching and natural law with the secular view of same-sex activities. Something has got to give. I am not in studies to focus all my attention on making sure every human being is sexually integrated with what they think is the right thing to do with their baby-making gear! Sex outside of the covenant of marriage between one man and one is objectivly wrong! What don't you understand? Go someplace else if this is too much for you to take. Seriously, get out! Get out now! You cannot win, Christ has already won, you are just paving the path to hell with another layer of lies and filth.

Andrew, O.P.

Found this review today on the web. Should be fascinating but brutal reading.
Semper Fi-
___________________________________A forthcoming book by investigative journalist Randy Engel is likely to be one of the most controversial books of its kind in quite some time.

The Rite of Sodomy — Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church, due out in July 2006, is 1318 pages in length, and, according to the Web site for the book, "tracks the rise of homosexuality in the Catholic hierarchy, diocesan priesthood and religious life in the United States over a span of 100 years and three generations of prelates. It examines all facets of this intergenerational phenomenon on the life of the Church — yesterday, today and tomorrow. The text is broken down into five mini-book sections, each examining a different aspect of homosexuality in the Roman Catholic Church.

"Section I looks at pederasty, homosexuality in its most pervasive and universal form, from Antiquity to the Middle Ages, to the Renaissance, to the rise of the Modern State in the mid-to-late 1800s. Section II exams the complex nature and causes of male homosexuality, describes homosexual acts and behaviors, and provides an in-depth look at the secular Homosexual Collective and the inordinate power it exerts over the individual homosexual. Sections III and IV document the growth of the vice within the American Church (AmChurch) with special attention to the National Conference of Catholic Bishops/U.S. Catholic Conference and Catholic dioceses headed by homosexual cardinals and bishops.

"There is biographical data on more than 30 homosexual prelates and detailed case studies on homosexuality and pederasty in six major religious orders. A carefully researched report on New Ways Ministry, one of the most influential pro-homosexual auxiliary organizations in AmChurch, illustrates the total ineptitude of the Holy See in confronting morally subversive agencies within its own ranks. Section V brings all elements of the controversy over homosexuality in the Catholic Church under one roof — the dome of St. Peter's. An examination of the role played by Pope Paul VI in connection with the rise of a "gay" clergy in the Universal Church bring this blockbuster work to its startling conclusion.

"The Rite of Sodomy contains 4,523 endnotes, a bibliography of over 350 books, and a full index."

Also, Engel has informed me that her book will "back [Father James Haley] up" regarding Cardinal Theodore McCarrick's alleged abuse of power via seminarian sleepovers while bishop of Metuchen, NJ.

The official website for the book is
