Get out while the going is good?
I guess Nicholson was Voris' spiritual director and a CMTV friend. Now some bloggers are saying the priest completely disowned them. They are speculating that Nicholson is talking about CMTV in the above statement. I don't know if it is actually something he said or published, but like the accusations against the archdiocese of NY made by Michael - a lot of mud-slinging seems to be going on.
Fr. Nicholson seems to offer a one size fits all diagnosis of what's going on ...
Those who are the most ardent fault finders are those who suffer from a deep self-hatred. Homosexual acts produces in an individual such self-loathing that it not surprising that the gay culture manifests itself in attacking with hostility. Unwittingly the culture of the Internet is dominated by this gay culture ... And today, many Catholics are so deformed that they have succumbed to it. That is why there are groups and individuals who can make a living off of bashing bishops. They survive on poorly formed Catholics. Do not follow or listen to anyone who bashes the sacred hierarchy. It is an evident sign they experience self-loathing. Even if the person has repented of deep sexual sins in their past, human nature will be infected by those sins. It can happen therefore that the prodigal son can turn into the elder brother. Have nothing to do with these forms of "apostolate". - Source
Man. There is so much to unpack there. So much. Right off the bat I sense a duplicity of 'pastoral care' at the end of that statement, "Even if the person has repented of deep sexual sins in their past, human nature will be infected by those sins." Which pretty much equals the secretly held prejudiuce, 'once a homo, always a homo'. And that proves the lie of many who insist 'they hate the sin but love the sinner.' I read the same type of hypocrisy in those pro-life warriors who praised Trump for saying women who get abortions should be punished. One woman online pointed out women she considered sluts to support the Trump statement. Others used their 'experience' in pro-life work to support the same position.
Sunday's Second Reading on how Christ 'makes all things new' as well as the Scripture, 'though your sins be as scarlet he makes them white as snow' simply must not be believed by those people who try to destroy the reputations of others, or hold them to account for their sins that have been forgiven.
'Faithful' Catholics do not want you or me to go out in public without our scarlet letter of sins - number and kind - made public, pasted on our foreheads, and forever holding us in our place of shame. No wonder gay people suffer from self-loathing - they are loathed by the self-righteous.
Not surprisingly, the good father asks for donations now that he has shaken the dust from his sandals:
Dear friends; I apologize for not providing you with a daily video, and this may be for a while. I have ceased doing business with the company that provided the platform. While my future is uncertain, I entrust myself to the Providential goodness of God the Father. If you could, in your kindness continue your financial support during this adventure, I would be most appreciative. God reward you! Fr. Paul Nicholson
