Father De Cock


On homosexual love...
.
Fr. De Cock (I know!) just received his doctorate at Catholic University of Louvain with a work "Touched to Love. An Attempt at a Theological Anthropology of the Body and Homosexuality."
.
Sounds to me like it could be another twist(ed) attempt in the ongoing interpretation of Theology of the Body.
.
New Catholic at Rorate Caeli has the story

  3. The picture itself is scary enough...his theology is even scarier.
    Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

  5. Oh gee. I would never go to confession with him. If I didn't know he was a priest I'd cry if he came near me. That's one dead eyed man.

  6. Cigarette smokers die 8 years sooner than non-smokers.

    Male homosexuals die 12 years sooner than smokers?

    We spend billions of dollars getting people to quit smoking and have banned it from almost all public places?

    Why are we expected to celebrate and approve of homosexuals and their lifestyles?

  7. Wow, Ray, that is a really insightful and great point! Touche'

    oh man, Terry, I have recently read up on all this interpretations of Theology of the body..especially that Christopher West dude. I had no idea. Alice Von Hildebrand is totally correct. I can't understand how Janet Smith can support it -- unless she had only read bits and pieces that sounded OK (as I had earlier). But really digging in and reading his stuff (which offends modest souls, btw), the thought occured to me several times, that this twisted perversion of logic he uses could easily be applied to justify homosexuality. Et, voila! Monsieur Pere De Cock (I know)!

  8. I am not making any acusations, but his photo looks not unlike the men on the Kansas State sexual preditators web page. I won't link to it, trust me, he does.

    I wouldn't let him near my children for confession much less anything else.

    Hey, do you think a contracepting couple could get an absolution from him? That's the true mark of a traitor Catholic.

  9. The keffiyeh? Solidarity, available at Macy's. Or is it just priestly pashmina.
