The stages of grief.
I guess there are stages. Today I'm really pissed about the McCarrick story and the cover up. The cover up!
How many years, how many decades have I been told, "I'm not aware of a problem of gay priests?" "I'm not aware of gay priests in the diocese." "It's a paedophilia problem NOT a homosexual problem!" "He has SSA but he's not gay." Whenever I posted on a gay priest caught doing something or arrested for his bad behavior, I'd hear from someone to take it down and have more compassion on the guy. That's another form of cover up people. These poor guys were told they were fine for ordination and then when the reality of celibate priesthood crushes them, they act out in strange ways. Bishops and vocation directors lie to homosexuals and tell them they have a vocation.
The cover up. The denial. The hypocrisy. The shaming of people who want to follow Catholic teaching. The accusations of homophobia if you reject their new ways ministry of endorsing homosexual acts and marriage. I am tired of it.
Gay ministries and those who lead them often say they would like gay priests and bishops to come out. I wish they would too, and resign if they have anything on their record. If they have lovers, call boys, or act out in parks or online. Man up. Stop lying. Stop the cover up.
That's all. Talk amongst yourselves. Spare me the sermons though.
Is everybody gay?
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You traverse sea and land to make one convert, and when that happens you make him a child of Gehenna twice as much as yourselves. - Matthew 23:15
