Thalamus Center - Early Childhood Psychological Development Growing up Gay                  
Fr. Marty Kurylowicz    



April 20, 2015

Rev. Mercier, 

I received your letter dated March 3, 2015 on March 20, 2015 - postmarked from Grand Rapids, on March 18, 2015. In answer to - the letter that I received from Bishop Walkowiak, dated November 26, 2013, regarding Bishop Walter Hurley’s canonical proceedings to remove me from the priesthood - I have previously sent my letter of appeal, dated January 16, 2014, FedEx to Pope Francis, Casa Santa Marta, Piazza Santa Marta, 00120 Citta del Vaticano. 

However, due to the extraordinary revealing events related to the Synod of Bishops on Family - October 2014 they disclosed information crucial to my appeal - in addition - to the letter of appeal I sent to Pope Francis, January 16, 2014. I have included these observations and the documentation in a two part posting labeled - Ghosts in the - Synod of Bishops on Family - October 2014 - Repress Unacknowledged Need for Empathy? The links to these postings are found below.

Due to my penniless situation, at the age of 65 years old - a direct cause of the Vatican’s severe retaliation tactics waged against me that first began two months after I came out in March 1997 for the protection of gay children as young 4 and 5 years of age, at which time - I was instructed, then at the age of 47 years old, by Bishop Robert Rose that I was to be sent away on a sabbatical that was being put together for me - to reeducate me on the subject of sexual orientation.  Though, I was told that it is taking some time to find the right place to send me to be reeducated on the subject of sexual orientation. 

Regardless, this idea was not only irrational but the attempt to even conceive the idea of forcing someone, a priest, to such inhumane mistreatment void of any consideration of compassion - was not only sociopathic, in nature, but psychotic as well - a complete break external reality. Even more disturbing was the fact that Bishop Rose, a long time friend of mine, was being complicit with these unconscionable and sadistic directives coming from the Vatican. 

The irresponsible lack of any canonical recourse for a priest in my situation to seek protection - is equally sociopathic and psychotic behavior, as well. It appears to be a socially accepted behavior, likely, born out of having been schooled in seminaries,  as young adolescence “where known sexual abuse of the students, by adult faculty members was going on and no one did anything to stop it. And though a student may never been assaulted sexually, but was aware of the sexual abuse was going on and no one stopped it - would be a severe form of the abuse of neglect (http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2015/03/repost-cold-blooded-murderers-revised.html).” This is the type of culture that still appears to pervade the curia and the majority of the hierarchy. One that particularly allowed Cardinal Burke to reign so inhumanly that was destructive for decades. 

Having absolutely no recourse available to me in June 1997, including even to this day 18 years later, to address this sociopathic and psychotic retaliation being waged against me and refusing to be coerced into compliance into their irrational and inhumane directives - I did what any person would do who valued his or her life is to escape to safety, even at the cost of leaving all your belongings behind. I had to escape at the sacrifice of giving up regular priestly salary, among other things besides. And like any person, who escaped such inhumane mistreatment, one has no clear idea what he or she is going to do or how to resolve the situation. No sane person would suggest  or force a severely abused wife to return to her husband - the one who is the abuser.  Regardless how much he pleaded for her to come back or made it look like she left him and is a disobedient wife for not returning to her husband.

The Vatican’s severe retaliation tactics waged against me did not end in 1997.  They continued in the way of character assassination attacks made against my character - destroying my reputation, credibility and thus the means for me to support myself. I have been a victim for the past 18 years, ever since I came out, March 1997, for the protection of very young gay children, of these severe retaliation tactics that includes, now as evidence - the present canonical processing you have registered with the protocol number 20131723/F. 

Therefore, due to my penniless situation, as described in brief above - I am unable to mail to you these documents, including this letter.

However, I have been informed that the blog, I started for the protection of gay children called the “Thalamus Center - Early Childhood Psychological Development Growing Up Gay” has been closely monitored by your department, among others. Therefore, this letter addressed to you that is dated and posted on April 20, 2015 - contains a link to my appeal letter and enclosed documents that I sent to Pope Francis, January 16, 2014 and including the links to the additional documentation regarding the Synod 2014 that are all listed as follows:

Preface 





“Blaming the Victim”

It is vital to preface, a word of caution regarding the tendency of “blaming the victim” before reviewing the brutal and dehumanizing mistreatment I have been subjected to by members of the curia and the “unnamed” bishops of my diocese for the past 18 years of my life that you have reduced to a number - registering with the protocol number 20131723/F. 

There is an understandable human tendency that when we hear a bizarre situation consisting of a series of severely tragic events that end up to be lethal “cold-blooded murder” - to blame the victim of fabrication and guilty of causing the hostility.  

In my situation this is not the case. The crucial difference is that I came out based on valid authoritative documentation regarding human sexuality and the lifetime harm that is caused to children in early childhood developmental years growing up gay - by antigay social and religious norms. 

And the cruel and ruthless treatment that I have been subjected to for the past 18 years by the Vatican is based on the complete suppression of the authoritative documentation regarding human sexuality, This has been overwhelmingly been verified by the past 30 years, the Vatileaks, but most especially by the fierce negative reaction to the Synod 2014 - welcoming gay people and supporting gay children. Photo

What is BLAMING THE VICTIM?

Victim blaming


“Belief In A Just World”

Though it is quite common to blame the victim of a brutal, dehumanizing situation (i.e. rape), according to the research of social psychology, without looking at the total picture of the situation (http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2010/04/blaming-victim-ellen-langer-harvard.html http://www.thepsychfiles.com/2007/03/episode-7-blaming-the-victim-and-other-biases/#sthash.HcMvcb34.dpbs & http://www.psych.ualberta.ca/~jschimel/psych%20241/12%20Angry%20men%5Bnotes%5D.htm). 

We blame the victim to maintained our “belief in a just world” and  our false belief that bad things only happen to bad people(http://www.scu.edu/ethics/publications/iie/v3n2/justworld.html & http://www.erzwiss.uni-halle.de/gliederung/paed/ppsych/chap_Guilford_final_final_accepted.pdf). We do this because we want to believe that we live in a safe world, it calms our fears and anxieties from the truth, the reality that bad things can and do happen to good people.

Dispositional vs. Situational 

We are quite adept in reviewing a brutal situation after it has taken place and reconstruct the facts of the situation in a way that supports our “belief in a just world.” We do this by judging the disposition of the person (the victim) and not the whole situation.  Research studies have shown that there is a tendency to wrongly blame the victims of crimes or accidents that they caused their own fates; the victims of rape are blamed for being raped and that battered wives are somehow responsible for their abusive husbands behavior. People like to think that bad people get what they deserve and that life is safe, orderly, and predictable - as along as - one just follows the rules. There is a general understanding that the poor and the disadvantaged in the world - have less because they deserve less. 


Vatileaks - & - the “X-Files”


In attempting to explain the past 18 years of my life - regarding the Vatican’s cruel vindictive mistreatment - I have prefaced my explanation by stating “it is going to sound like a Sci Fi (science fiction) movie or the TV series called the “X-Files.” It would not be justice - to make an assessment of the past 18 years of my life - separate from the whole situation - the obsessive antigay crusade that has been raging on from the Vatican for the past 30 years, including the corruption and character assassinations noted in the Vatileaks and confirmed several times by Pope Francis. Photo

...Then there is “existential schizophrenia: the sickness of those who live a double life, fruit of the hypocrisy typical of the mediocre and the progressive spiritual emptiness that cannot be filled by degrees or academic honours. This ailment particularly afflicts those who, abandoning pastoral service, limit themselves to bureaucratic matters, thus losing contact with reality and with real people. They create a parallel world of their own, where they set aside everything they teach with severity to others and live a hidden, often dissolute life”...


Crucial Importance
is
Protecting Children


 ...Exposure to traumatic events in childhood can have dire and long-lasting consequences, not only for traumatized children but for society as well. Green (1985) has suggested that “failure to master the trauma of childhood creates a continual need to repeat and reenact them during adult life”... Kenneth E. Fletcher

However, it was the negative reaction to the midterm report of the Synod on Family 2014 - welcoming gay people and supporting gay children that was most revealing, in particular by Cardinal Burke. I came out, in March 1997, for the protection of gay children as young as 4 and 5 years of age and the lifetime harm that is caused to them by the influence of the antigay social and religious norms http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2015/03/repost-cold-blooded-murderers-revised.html ). It was the negative reaction to the idea of welcoming gays at the Synod 2014, noticeably absent is any substantiating evidence to support the degree of the intensity of their emotional negative response that was most revealing (http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2014/09/ghosts-in-synod-of-bishops-on-family.html ). It most unfortunately matched the emotional intensity of the obsessive antigay campaign that is heavily documented through the history of the past 30 years, starting with Archbishop Hunthausen. It was so obsessive to the exclusion of the reality of the critical needs of human beings around the world. It is an addiction to hatred. 

Mercenary Culture
of
Repressive Homosexuals 

It pointed back to organizational structure of the hierarchy and the curia over the past 30 years - indicating the likely highest population of repressed homosexuals - who were harmed for life by the antigay social and religious norms - when they were children as young as, 4 and 5 years of age. They sadly validated the research that I based my reason for “coming out” in March 1997. It is further validated - by their extreme low of level of sociability noted by their endless infighting, power struggles, attacking one another, gossiping, leading to cold-blooded murder, as verified by the Vatileaks and Pope Francis. They reach a high level of solidarity only when they are demonizing, dehumanizing and scapegoating homosexuals, while disregarding all substantiated - documentation to the contrary.

MRIs - Anger vs. Laughter 

As demonstrated by their endless public remarks made against gay people, especially at the Synod 2014 regarding considering gay people and gay children in a favorable light - has shown that the mere thought of homosexuals is enough to evoke an emotionally intense reflex of instant hostility that is indiscriminately directed at gay people. It is so immediately explosive that it bypasses all logical and rational thought processes. MRIs taken of the brain at the time of intense anger have shown that only two parts of the brain light up - meaning they are activated, while leaving the rest of the brain in darkness, that is inactive. This is because blood rushes to only two parts of the brain. This gives new meaning to the phase, when it is said that someone is “not playing with a full deck” of 52 cards” - implying that the person is mentally deficient. 

In stark contrast, MRIs taken of the brain at the time of intense laughter have shown that every part of the brain lights up meaning that every part of the brain is activated. It makes sense that when we are intensely anger it restricts proper blood flow - unlike when we are relaxed and at ease blood flows properly throughout the body.

Brain’s "humor muscles" 
Laughter is the best medicine…Scientific studies are increasingly showing that humor and laughter are extremely beneficial to one’s health in a variety of ways.
Neuroscientist refers to the brain’s "humor muscles" in reference to "getting a joke" as humor appears to be a whole-brain networking process. The language center on the left side of the brain hears the joke, makes sense of the words and then sends the message across to the right side of the brain. Next, the right frontal cortex finds brain areas of stored emotions and social memories; makes a connection, interprets, and the joke is perceived as humorous and displayed as laughter.
Brain scans have shown increased blood flow to the brain regions where humor is processed and when laughter occurs. Other positive brain effects with humor are increased memory, an enhanced ability to learn and greater creativity skills! 
It becomes an overall physical body exercise when one laughs. Although blood pressure and pulse will increase with laughing, they drop down lower than one’s baseline afterwards, as they would with exercise. With laughter, the heart is exercises and the lungs emptied of more air giving them a cleansing effect similar to deep breathing…

Humor, Laughter, and Those Aha Moments  2010
It’s important to make a distinction between humor and laughter,” says Carl Marci, MD, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and the director of social neuroscience in the Psychotherapy Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital. “Humor is an evoked response to storytelling and shifting expectations. Laughter is a social signal among humans...
The contagion of laughter, Marci says, suggests patients felt that the emotions they expressed were being validated. It also supports the notion that empathy is a shared experience...
The findings, Marci adds, also suggest that mirror neurons, which are linked to empathic behavior, are often involved in laughter. Mirror neurons are a subset of neurons that fire both when we perform an action and when we observe that same action performed by others...
Once Daily, with Gusto
Laughter may also confer health benefits. For the past forty years, studies have shown that good, hearty laughter can relieve tension and stress; boost the immune system, by reducing stress hormones and increasing activity among immune cells and antibodies; and help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, by improving blood flow and blood vessel function.
Laughter and humor can be a tonic for the brain, as well. Triggering the brain’s emotional and reward centers spurs the release of dopamine, helping the brain to process emotional responses and enhancing our experience of pleasure; of serotonin, to buoy our mood; and of endorphins, to regulate our pain and stress and to induce euphoria.
The next time you hear a joke, whether you get it or not, let yourself go and enjoy a good, hearty laugh. It’s good for you!…

Hostility - Repressed Homosexual Urges

These MRIs (brain scans) studies of the intense emotions of anger and laughter helps us to better understand when we operating mentally at our best and when we have lost perspective on an issue. These studies help to explain in part - why their hostility is so intense against homosexuals that it completely excludes the integration of any science regarding sexual orientation or the consideration of other scriptural interpretations regarding homosexuals. 

Gay Adult Porn & Homophobia

Other recent studies involving non-homophobic and homophobic men who all reported histories of only being aroused in heterosexual situations - found that it was only the homophobic men who displayed physical indications of being sexually aroused while watching a four minute gay male porn video. Afterwards, these homophobic men reported not experiencing any sexual arousal while viewing the gay male porn video, even though the factual evidence proved the opposite. These studies found that 

homophobia is an emotional or affective response including fear, anxiety, anger, discomfort and aversion that an individual experiences in interacting with gay individuals,…
The idea of repressed or latent homosexuality explains “the emotional malaise and irrational attitudes displayed by some individuals who feel guilty about their erotic interests and struggle to deny and repress homosexual impulses.”…

Homophobes Might Be Hidden Homosexuals - April 12, 2012
Homophobes should consider a little self-reflection, suggests a new study finding those individuals who are most hostile toward gays and hold strong anti-gay views may themselves have same-sex desires, albeit undercover ones.
The prejudice of homophobia may also stem from authoritarian parents, particularly those with homophobic views as well, the researchers added.
"This study shows that if you are feeling that kind of visceral reaction to an out-group, ask yourself, 'Why?'" co-author Richard Ryan, a professor of psychology at the University of Rochester, said in a statement. "Those intense emotions should serve as a call to self-reflection.”…
The research may help to explain the underpinnings of anti-gay bullying and hate crimes, the researchers note. People in denial about their own sexual orientation, perhaps a denial fostered by authoritarian and homophobic parents, may feel a threat from other gay and lesbian individuals. Lashing out may ultimately be an indicator of the person's own internal conflict with sexual orientation.
This inner conflict can be seen in some high-profile cases in which anti-gay public figures are caught engaging in same-sex acts, the researchers say. For instance, evangelical preacher and anti-gay-marriage advocate Ted Haggard was caught in a gay sex scandal in 2006.  And in 2010, prominent anti-gay activist and co-founder of conservative Family Research Council George Rekers was reportedly spotted in 2010 with a male escort rented from Rentboy.com. According to news reports, the escort confirmed Rekers is gay.
"We laugh at or make fun of such blatant hypocrisy, but in a real way, these people may often themselves be victims of repression and experience exaggerated feelings of threat," Ryan said. "Homophobia is not a laughing matter. It can sometimes have tragic consequences," as was the case in the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay man.

Homophobia
"Homophobia: The fear of feeling of love for members of one's own sex and therefore the hatred of those feelings in others... the belief in the inherent superiority of one pattern of loving and thereby its right to dominance."
There are four distinct but interrelated types of homophobia: personalinterpersonalinstitutional, and cultural.

Atrocities of Repressed Homosexuals 
Mercenary Culture

Despite, the past nearly 60 years of authoritative research findings regarding homosexuality, sexual orientation, human sexuality, and regardless of the related life and death ramifications these findings present for human beings globally, especially, for children - they have not, in the least, been considered of any relevant importance, for the past 30 years, by the overwhelming majority of the members of the Roman Catholic hierarchy. In fact, the exact opposite has been the case - there has been an obsessive vigilance in fiercely suppressing and silencing the emerging science on homosexuality. 

This unconscionable behavior has been most emphatically been publicly demonstrated by Cardinal Burke. Burke has been the most aggressively cruel member of the Roman Catholic hierarchy   - in this ruthless and blatantly dehumanizing antigay crusade. He has publicly equated gay couples to be the same as murders, though he has been challenged for his complete lack of charity in this regard. 

Cardinal Raymond Burke: Gays, remarried Catholics, murderers are all the same - 3/27/15

This intense animosity is so strong that they adamantly refuse to even openly dialogue about gay people or to give any validated reasoning to support their position. The explanation of homosexuality that is given is rote (unthinkingly, mindlessly) and is expressed the same by all, as if it was frozen in time. It has been and remains - a global example of collective culpability of vincible ignorance or put in scriptural terms of - “the blind leading the blind.”

The Relationship Between Religious Orientation, Right- Wing Authoritarianism, and Implicit Sexual Prejudice 
Jo-Ann Tsang & Wade C. Rowatt - 2007
Department of Psychology and Neuroscience , Baylor University 
Religious Orientation and Authoritarianism in Cross-cultural Perspective: A Special Issue of the international Journal for the Psychology of Religion – December 5, 2007
Brief excerpt:

Societal Implications of Negative Implicit Attitudes
One important reason for the study of prejudice is that negative attitudes and emotions associated with prejudice often have behavioral ramifications…Research has demonstrated that explicit prejudice against gay men and lesbians is related to less helping of both gay individuals and gay-friendly institutions…Implicit prejudices have also been shown to manifest themselves in behavior…For instance, Neumann, Hulsenbeck, and Seibt (2004) found that implicit attitudes toward individuals with AIDS were related to approach and avoidance behaviors…Research on implicit sexual prejudice has also found that implicit attitudes toward homosexual individuals predict more negative nonverbal behavior toward individuals believed to be gay, but only in people with low self-reported egalitarian attitudes and low behavioral control (Dasgupta & Rivera, 2006). Negative implicit attitudes therefore have the potential to impact many aspects of an individual’s behavior and seem diametrically opposed to religious tenets of justice and compassion.
The knowledge that some religious variables such as intrinsic religiousness may be related to implicit, automatic negative attitudes toward homosexual individuals can be an important tool in the amelioration of prejudice. Although intrinsically religious individuals may have negative implicit attitudes toward homosexuality, these individuals are also the religious followers who should be most committed to religion’s message of love and compassion. Even though negative implicit prejudice may be an automatic reaction of an intrinsically religious person to homosexual individuals, perhaps knowledge of this reaction may motivate the individual to correct for these implicit prejudices on a more conscious level (Dasgupta & Rivera, 2006; Devine, 1989) and help  religion to move in the direction of “unmaking” prejudice (Allport, 1966).

However, most encouraging, since the Synod of 2014 - these are not antigay sentiments that are shared by all - even if it was only by a few.  Perhaps, there are more and the strong emphases that Pope Francis placed on the importance of open dialogue at the Synod on Family 2014 became the opportunity for those members of the hierarchy to voice - a more integrated perspective regarding gay people and especially gay children growing up. Photo

This courageous approach is more in line with the personal responsibility - we all share in common that is - the lifelong task of continually educating our individual consciences. It is no easy task and at times, one that can be most unwelcome and even threatening, however, it is only truth that sets us free that brings us peace and joy - even in the face of extreme adversity. 

II. THE FORMATION OF CONSCIENCE
1783 Conscience must be informed and moral judgment enlightened. A well-formed conscience is upright and truthful. It formulates its judgments according to reason, in conformity with the true good willed by the wisdom of the Creator… 
1784 The education of the conscience is a lifelong task. From the earliest years, it awakens the child to the knowledge and practice of the interior law recognized by conscience. Prudent education teaches virtue; it prevents or cures fear, selfishness and pride, resentment arising from guilt, and feelings of complacency, born of human weakness and faults. The education of the conscience guarantees freedom and engenders peace of heart.
IV. ERRONEOUS JUDGMENT
1790 A human being must always obey the certain judgment of his conscience. If he were deliberately to act against it, he would condemn himself. Yet it can happen that moral conscience remains in ignorance and makes erroneous judgments about acts to be performed or already committed.
1791 This ignorance can often be imputed to personal responsibility. This is the case when a man "takes little trouble to find out what is true and good, or when conscience is by degrees almost blinded through the habit of committing sin.” In such cases, the person is culpable for the evil he commits.
1794 A good and pure conscience is enlightened by true faith, for charity proceeds at the same time "from a pure heart and a good conscience and sincere faith."
The more a correct conscience prevails, the more do persons and groups turn aside from blind choice and try to be guided by objective standards of moral conduct.
IN BRIEF
1795 "Conscience is man's most secret core, and his sanctuary. There he is alone with God whose voice echoes in his depths".
1796 Conscience is a judgment of reason by which the human person recognizes the moral quality of a concrete act.
1797 For the man who has committed evil, the verdict of his conscience remains a pledge of conversion and of hope.
1798 A well-formed conscience is upright and truthful. It formulates its judgments according to reason, in conformity with the true good willed by the wisdom of the Creator. Everyone must avail himself of the means to form his conscience.
1799 Faced with a moral choice, conscience can make either a right judgment in accordance with reason and the divine law or, on the contrary, an erroneous judgment that departs from them.
1800 A human being must always obey the certain judgment of his conscience.
1801 Conscience can remain in ignorance or make erroneous judgments. Such ignorance and errors are not always free of guilt.
1802 The Word of God is a light for our path. We must assimilate it in faith and prayer and put it into practice. This is how moral conscience is formed.

Gay Adult Pornography
&
Sexual Fetishes

There tends to be an overwhelming pervasive self-righteous attitude and disdained disapproval of anyone who has viewed gay adult pornography. However, this self-righteous reaction of superiority is far more revealing of the people who project their scornfulness onto those they deemed to be far less righteous. 

These people would have had to viewed gay adult pornography and had been considerably - sexually aroused by the content to the degree that activated their repressive defenses to attempt to obliterate from memory the erotic feelings it evoked. They may be able to block it from their conscious memory, but not entirely, because it will remain alive and active in their unconscious minds. And when it surfaces - it will be projected on to someone else as if it never came from them.

Because, otherwise why would they become so outraged about someone viewing gay adult pornography - unless of course they are familiar with the content and the erotic feelings it evokes . Otherwise, why become so outrage about something they have no knowledge of, this would then be a symptom of a form of mental illness. 

But the issue of viewing gay adult pornography goes far more deeper than activating the defense of repression and then projection.  The ubiquitous spread of gay adult pornography throughout the Internet and the collective intense self-righteous reactions to it - says something about the truth about homosexuality - sexual orientation.

There is considerably much more to gay adult pornography, and that of all forms of adult pornography, including the display of all types of sexual fetishes than evoking intense erotic feelings. There is a lot to learn about human sexuality and the reasons that leads to the global population accessing of adult pornography, but in particular of gay adult pornography.

The truth appears to be that the sexual orientation of homosexuality is a normal and natural part of human sexual development that is set very early in life either just before birth or very soon after birth. And any attempt to disrupt the natural development of child’s particular sexual orientation - depending the kind and degree of intensity of this disruption - will have lifelong lasting negative effects regarding there ability to love others and to be loved. It negatively effects their ability to form meaningful lifelong and nurturing relationships. There is a real tendency that it will lead to some form of sexual acting out behaviors, such as, though not limited to, viewing adult pornography and the possibility of developing any number of sexual fetishes.

Given Uganda's homophobia, why does it lead the way in Googling gay porn? -  10 January 2014
Is there a connection, then, between homophobia and suppressed homosexuality, along the lines of "me thinks he protesteth too much"? Is it that homosexual desires, when shut out because of some sense of shame, can easily express themselves as a form of homophobia? When the US conservative evangelical pastor Ted Haggard, well known for his anti-gay preaching, was discovered to have been paying a masseur for gay sex, he explained that "I think I was partially so vehement because of my own war". Freud coined the description "reaction-formation", in which anxiety-generating feelings are masked by an exaggerated reaction in the opposite direction. There is some experimental evidence to back this up, with one study showing that 20% of those who self-described as "highly straight" indicated some level of same-sex attraction. This discrepancy is often put down to highly controlling parents who do not allow their children room to explore their sexual identity.
Yes, of course, there are many people who do not experience same-sex attraction who are anti-gay. But one of the features of reaction-formation is its paranoia and lack of proportion. And this is precisely what the scaremongering nonsense about gay people being out to get our children – a common line in the Ugandan debate – clearly demonstrates. In conservative religious environments where God is depicted as a powerful all-controlling parent, it makes sense to me that this reaction-formation will be particularly strong…

Why Is Gay Porn So Popular in Pakistan? - June 13, 2013
Earlier this month, the Pew Research Center published results of a public survey of gay tolerance in 39 countries worldwide. The numbers are fairly unsurprising: While a high proportion of respondents in Western Europe and North America answered "yes" to the question "Should society accept homosexuality?" few respondents in the Middle East and Africa agreed with them.
Among the least tolerant nations surveyed was Pakistan, where only 2 percent of those surveyed said society should accept homosexuality. That statistic might be unsurprising, considering that gay sex is illegal under the Pakistani penal code. But what is surprising is how those views compare to Pakistani search traffic around gay-porn-related terms…

The Global Divide on Homosexuality - June 4, 2013

What lies behind religious homophobia - February 26, 2013
"And why is your church so anti-gay?," came back the obvious question. "Because it is so gay," I replied.
A furrowed brow invited further exposition. I then spelt out the logic. We interviewed clerics and ex-seminarians in the UK, US and Rome and uncovered a huge irony: the very institution that teaches that the homosexual orientation is "intrinsically disordered" attracts gay candidates for the priesthood in numbers way in excess of what one would expect, based on numbers in society at large. One seminary rector based on his own experience told me the number was at least 50%.
Gay Catholics like me will appreciate another irony with the news of Cardinal Keith O'Brien's resignation: that the very man whose trenchant rhetoric on the subjects of gay adoption and marriage has been brought down by accusations of improper same-sex behaviour from no less than four men who crossed his path in the 1980s, either as a seminary rector or as archbishop of Edinburgh. His decision not to participate in the papal conclave is not to be taken as an admission of guilt and he contests the accusations made against him. Nevertheless, it does raise some general questions about a possible relationship between the tone of anti-gay rhetoric and the identities of those who engage in such high-octane language on same sex attraction…

The Size of the LGBT Population and the Magnitude of Anti-Gay Sentiment are Substantially Underestimated - October 2013 
Measuring sexual orientation, behavior, and related opinions is difficult because responses are biased towards socially acceptable answers. We test whether measurements are biased even when responses are private and anonymous and use our results to identify sexuality-related norms and how they vary…
…The results show non-heterosexuality and anti-gay sentiment are substantially underestimated in existing surveys, and the privacy afforded by current best practices is not always sufficient to eliminate bias. Finally, our results identify two social norms: it is perceived as socially undesirable both to be open about being gay, and to be unaccepting of gay individuals.

How Many American Men Are Gay? - December 7, 2013
WHAT percent of American men are gay? This question is notoriously difficult to answer. Historical estimates range from about 2 percent to 10 percent.
But somewhere in the exabytes of data that human beings create every day are answers to even the most challenging questions.
Using surveys, social networks, pornographic searches and dating sites, I recently studied evidence on the number of gay men. The data used in this analysis is available in highly aggregated form only and can be downloaded from publicly accessible sites. While none of these data sources are ideal, they combine to tell a consistent story.
At least 5 percent of American men, I estimate, are predominantly attracted to men, and millions of gay men still live, to some degree, in the closet. Gay men are half as likely as straight men to acknowledge their sexuality on social networks. More than one quarter of gay men hide their sexuality from anonymous surveys. The evidence also suggests that a large number of gay men are married to women…
…Additional evidence that suggests that many gay men in intolerant states are deeply in the closet comes from a surprising source: the Google searches of married women. It turns out that wives suspect their husbands of being gay rather frequently. In the United States, of all Google searches that begin “Is my husband...,” the most common word to follow is “gay.” “Gay” is 10 percent more common in such searches than the second-place word, “cheating.” It is 8 times more common than “an alcoholic” and 10 times more common than “depressed.”
Searches questioning a husband’s sexuality are far more common in the least tolerant states. The states with the highest percentage of women asking this question are South Carolina and Louisiana. In fact, in 21 of the 25 states where this question is most frequently asked, support for gay marriage is lower than the national average…

Gay 
Adult Pornography 
Cardinal Burke and US Catholic Bishops

If it wasn’t for the fanatical religious repression of homosexuality - the gay adult pornography industry would be out of business, thus ending the exploitation of human beings.

They are destructive of gay people who want and are trying to live out  loving relationship. In the movie Brokeback Mountain (2005) it is a tragic life story that is depicted many over in real life. The harsh effects of antigay social and religious norms are clearly portrayed in this  movie. The movie also expresses the fact that sexual orientation is about love, being one with another human being. It is also shows how the ability of child growing up gay to form lifelong attachments that is establishing strong lasting relationships is permanently altered for life by his father taking him out to show him the kind of lethal violence that happens to two gay men living a life together. Photo
together.


An example of this is most vividly portrayed in the movie "Brokeback Mountain." It takes place when Ennis and Jack are together again for the first time in 4 years, after first meeting on Brokeback Mountain. They are sitting around a campfire in the evening and Ennis is relaxing reclining back starring up at the stars. Jack looks over at Ennis and says to him, "Is there anything interesting up there in heaven?" Ennis replies with a very pleasant smile on his face "I was just sending up a prayer of thanks." This is a very tender moment in the film, which Jack is in a way proposing to Ennis. Jack tells Ennis that "... it could be like this always, just like this, always." 
Ennis's face loses its smile becoming strained as he turns his face away from Jack, looks down at the ground. Ennis then begins to soberly tell Jack about this vivid flashback he is having to his early childhood days growing up. 
Ennis describes for Jack this disturbing scene from his past how his father took him and his brother along this pathway in the country to show them the kind of violence that happens to adult men who lived together. 
The traumatic psychological effects from this event with his father appear to have remained vivid throughout Ennis's adult life. It is shown in Ennis's inability to form and be in a relationship, any kind of relationship, but particularly the one with Jack, to go with Jack, and build a life together. "Early Childhood Growing Up" - Read more



The research on gay adult pornography found that the severer the religious obsessiveness is to enforce the complete repression of the sexual orientation of homosexuality - the greater the increase are for the searches on the internet for gay adult pornography websites. Gay adult pornography is not the problem, but a symptom caused by the obsessively intense religious repression of the any outward expression of sexual orientation of homosexuality. This fiercely intense outward attempts by fanatical male religious leaders to completely eradicate any expression of homosexuality - the gay adult pornography research data is indicating that it is a outward homophobic response of an internal struggle on the part these male religious leaders to suppress their own homosexual urges. 

Fiercely Antigay 
Public Restrooms & Male Prostitutes

Another fact that continually keeps surfacing not only in similar research studies, as in above, but repeatedly has been found reported in the news media for decades, - is the fact that many of the religious figures including politicians who have so fiercely lashed out against homosexuals i.e. gay marriage, ENDA, - have later been found in numerous situations involving having sex with men in public restrooms, or hiring gay prostitutes, including the Vatican or involved in long term gay sexual relationships.

Lacking Authoritative Data

And one fact that they all share in common, besides having sex with men, is in their public statements made against gay people - they never are able to offer any substantiated reasoning that is overall authoritatively accepted globally among all the related academic fields of studies, including biblical studies and theology. This is a deciding factor - regarding the legitimacy of politicians to be qualified pubic servants, who are running for public office, is if they make statements against gay marriage, whether or not they offer authoritative data to support their position. Because they have the staff and resources to do a thorough professional investigation on the subject that involves the lives of so many people - not just gay people. Mitt Romney, as a presidential candidate in 2012, appeared rudely dismissive by giving a curt and flippant response - even though he politely stated it - that his reason for not supporting gay marriage was because it was against the bible. For a man, who is known to have an elevator for his classic cars, his response was grossly inadequate, and most inappropriate for a presidential candidate, beside being unsubstantiated. The bible also, states a number of times that the earth does not move and that the sun is on the move.

The lack of supportive authoritative data, regardless now forcefully authoritarian statements are made against gay people or gay marriage e.g. Cardinal Burke - is either an indication of internalized homophobia or a ploy used for political and monetary gain.

Dehumanizing - Social and Religious Norms
Bisexuals - 80% of Human Population
Women - 50% of Human Population

A crucial issue that is never considered by Cardinal Burke and the majority of the members of the hierarchy when making antigay pronouncements. Is that their public unsubstantiated antigay statements are not only significantly harmful to gay children growing up, but they are equally harmful to bisexual children growing up and to heterosexual children growing up who are traumatized by witnessing - the violence being inflicted on other children. 

All together this equals dehumanizing - 100% of world’s population of all children growing up. It is around 80% of the human population that is bisexual. This means that their unsubstantiated condemnations of homosexuality is not limited to what is considered to be around 10% of the human population of the world, but they are attacking 90% of the human population. And the 10% of children growing up who are heterosexual - are also harmed by witnessing this form of violence against fellow human beings. 

Regretfully, it is members of the Roman Catholic Church, though, (1) predominantly the members of the hierarchy, such as Cardinal Burke who have obsessively led the way of this global dehumanization of all children, including adults - for over the past 30 years. This is in addition to their (2) setting a global example - how scientific data crucial for the safety and well-being of gay children and gay adults can simply be discarded as unimportant without any thorough investigation or open dialogue on the findings. In fact, Cardinal Burke and his followers - set an example of (3) how to ruthlessly and deceitfully silence and remove anyone who openly dialogues - this crucial emerging science vital to the lives of human beings i.e. protocol number 20131723/F. 

And if the above was not enough of Roman Catholic deceitfulness - Burke (4) openly made public statements, without any supporting evidence - attacking gay people that were in direct contradiction to the well established authoritative substantiated research data regarding homosexuality. He has also been (5) demeaning of women and dismissive of their important in the service and in the governing life of the Church.  He then publicly sites these demeaning and deceitful statements as the reason for the shortage of priests in the Church. He is completely oblivious that his demeaning statements made against women are dehumanizing to 50% of the world populations of human beings. 

Cardinal Raymond Burke: 'Feminized' church and altar girls caused priest shortage
January 7, 2015

Truth & Love

The shortage of priests in the Roman Catholic Church is directly due Cardinal Burke’s ruthlessness and deceitfulness attacking gay people and women and those in the Church who follow his example. Truthfulness and kindness are what inspires and attracts people to Jesus Christ that makes them want to be his disciples. People find wholeness and happiness only by being part of something greater than themselves. To be part of an organization that is fully committed to fearlessly and openly searching for truth that is demanding of everything within us - all our energy, effort, knowledge and skills to accomplish - is what brings us a lasting sense of wholeness and happiness. To be dedicated to every word of Jesus Christ is to be a part of the highest form of truth and love that brings us to want follow Christ’s example - to live a life of unselfish service to all God’s people.

Burke’s life of obsessive condemnation of gay people, women and that of all those he has forced into following his example of ruthlessness and deceitfulness that is a great deterrent. This true except for those who are also, like Burke, seemly addicted to hate and anger - the direct opposite of Christ’s example of love.

Devastation caused to humanity by the example that Burke has set for the past 30 year far exceeds the global damage being caused by climate change. However, these two global disasters considered together and not separate as Pope Benedict XVI did in his statement on December 22, 2008 are clearly the ultimate threat to humanity and global destruction. Dehumanizing anyone or group - is setting a global example that it is permissible by the Roman Catholic Church to consider some human beings to be less than human, meaning they do not deserve the same rights and privileges as the rest of humanity. Publicly condemning and attacking gay people including gay marriage is dehumanizing to 90% of the world’s population and the lifetime harmful effects experienced by gay and bisexual children growing up is destroying their ability to fully reach their human potential that would otherwise be used to help reverse the mass destruction caused by climate change. The same is true of dehumanizing the importance of women and the absolute necessity of their involvement in the leadership and governing of the Church. Women issues are sorely neglected by the Church. The lack of thoroughly investigating women's issues on all levels, including openly discussing them for clarity and understanding - leads to much confusion and needless conflict and the waste of invaluable  human potential. 

The Truth Will Set You Free

Pope Francis from the beginning of his papacy stress the importance to caring for the poor. He began restoring the human dignity of gay people, but even more their status as children of God. In one of his first homilies he spoke forthrightly about the truth and the status of Mary Magdalen among the apostles. He has continued to stress the need for women to be a  part of the Roman curia, including married couples. And now as he faces the challenges of climate change and it appears he has the support of the better part of the human population. His concern and  respect for all people, especially children and the marginalized - has refocused people’s attention and support on the people who have been dehumanized and are suffering the devastation caused by global greed. Pope Francis is able to do this because of his lifetime personal commitment to following Christ and all that that demands, which is everything. This is what is attracts people’s attention to want to follow Christ.  

Revealed - History of Gay Child Abuse 
Lifetime of Reenactments
The Exhaustion and Violence of Homophobia 

Cardinal Burke and the US Catholic Bishops have been obsessive in their concern regarding adult pornography. Cordileone went to the extreme - to issue the restriction of “viewing of pornography” as a directive to be included in the faculty handbook at four Catholic high schools and in of all places on earth - San Francisco (http://ncronline.org/blogs/ncr-today/controversy-san-francisco-highlights-importance-pope-francis-synod-family). It was notably interesting, on several levels, how overwhelmingly aware the US Catholic Bishops, including Cardinal Burke appeared to be on this one single issue of pornography to have voted 226 to 5 in approving the formation of a statement on the topic, November 12, 2013 (http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/us-bishops-to-address-pervasive-challenges-of-).  

Without being aware of it - Cardinal Burke and US Catholic Bishops, including Cordileone - all appear to be victims of the childhood abuse of being forced out of fear, as children, to repress their childhood expressions for the need to be loved and to love that were stemming from the development of their homosexual orientation. This is revealed by their obsessive public concern regarding, the “gay” adult pornography on the Internet their obsessive concern over gay marriage, which are a forms of reenactments of this past form of child abuse. 

Lifetime Repressing 
Need 
To Be Loved - & - To Love
Homosexual Urges

They are victims of this extreme form of child abuse of having been forced, to repress, as very young children, all their homosexual urges, which are the child’s urges expressing the child’s need to be loved and to love - throughout their early childhood years growing up that  has continued all throughout their adult lives. This is evident by their having lived a lifetime - adamantly refusing to access any authoritative data on the subject homosexuality or sexual orientation, and yet at the same time they have fiercely been maintaining an antigay crusade. The possibility of any open dialogue on the topic of sexual orientation is strictly off the table - that has adamantly and irrationally been enforced by Cardinal Burke. 

Sabotaging - Human Potential & Forming 
Intimate and Meaningful Relationships

What this indicates is that a tremendous amount of time and effort - daily throughout the lives of Burke, the hierarchy and the curia has been consciously or unconsciously spent on repressing their homosexual urges. This obsessive endeavor has crucially been sabotaging their ability and including the people they have harmed globally - from to fully develop their human potential. From reports about the curia's behavior i.e. constant internal fighting, power struggles, obsessive work related habits, lack of involvement with people we are supposed to be serving as priest, - it has caused them to be isolated and more than likely from developing any significant intimate and meaningful relationships. This stated due to the fact of the reported lack of joy that does not exist among the members of the curia. The importance and benefit of healthy and loving relationships is they delight us give us, give us confidence to take on challenges and support us in difficult times throughout our lives. And the reverse is also true - they are depriving others of benefiting from the delight, confidence and support being in a relationship with them.

Destruction of Empathy 

It also, means in varying degrees - an impaired ability to related and connect to others, except likely only on a superficial level. As divorced, as they are from any in-depth understanding 
of the meaning of their individual emotional states, they have publicly expressed same lack of insight the emotional states for other people. This is because the ability to empathize with another human is part and parcel to the successful development of a person sexual orientation. And since the development of their homosexual orientation, has been greatly impaired throughout their early childhood years growing up, they are significantly deficient in this respect. They have demonstrated this by showing any semblance of unity as a group - is only when their attention is directed at attacking, demeaning and suppressing gay people. These are reenactments of their early childhood abuse of being forced by demeaning attacks into complete suppression of development of their homosexual orientation that is directly related to their wanting to love and to be loved. 

Reenactments Revealing - - Early Childhood Abuse
Suppression of Homosexual Orientation 

What is not obvious to them is their lack of any authoritative data regarding homosexuality or to support their opposition to gay marriage is more of an indication of being reenactments of events that likely stem as far back to their early childhood.Their relentless lifetime antigay obsession is an indication of the depth of their internalized homophobia and the degree of their collective dissociation they are from their homosexual urges, though obvious in their reenactments 

The Swiss psychologist, Alice Miller, internationally known of her extensive work on child abuse victims. She explains that victims of child abuse, as adults - in the context of their reenactments will reveal the whole history of their early childhood abuse.  

FOR YOUR OWN GOOD
Hidden cruelty in child-rearing and the roots of violence (1980)
By Alice Miller
...In the earliest stage of life, it is possible for a child to forget about the extreme acts of cruelty he or she has endured and to idealize their perpetrator. But the nature of the subsequent enactment reveals that the whole history of early persecution was stored up somewhere; the drama now unfolds in front of the spectators with an amazing resemblance to the original situation but under another guise: in the reenactment, the child who was once persecuted now becomes the persecutor...

Burke’s Own 
“Incredibly Aggressive Homosexual Agenda”

Their complete lack of familiarity regarding the emerging science on homosexuality, sexual orientation and sexual repression - over the past 30 years - is their undoing, and the harm they are perpetuating to all people, especially children.

Their complete lack and disregard of any substantiated knowledge of human sexuality, especially regarding sexual orientation makes anyone with half a brain - (1) wonder then where are they getting their information from for making their obsessively intense public attacks against gay people, which is always in direct opposition to any authoritative science on homosexuality. And equally, puzzling is (2) their absolute refusal, like Burke, to explain, in any detail their position or to enter into any open dialogue on the subject of homosexuality. 

Development 
Internalized Homophobia

This leaves only a few possible sources for their intense statements against homosexuality. First, it is possible it comes from their shared ignorance, but then why is there a commonality in their collective shared ignorance and in their intensity?  Second, the only other source would have to be their own internalized homophobia established during their early childhood abuse suppressing the development of their gay sexual orientation. 

Cardinal Burke 
Gay Adult Porn & Homophobia 

One way to find out the truth is - if Cardinal Burke, Cordileone and the US Catholic Bishops would voluntary submit to being participants  in one of the research studies, referred to above. It involved gathering together  “… non-homophobic and homophobic men who all reported histories of only being aroused in heterosexual situations - found that it was only the homophobic men who displayed physical indications of being sexually aroused while watching a four minute gay male porn video. Afterwards, these homophobic men reported not experiencing any sexual arousal while viewing the gay male porn video, even though the factual evidence proved the opposite. These studies found that…”

   homophobia is an emotional or affective response including fear, anxiety, anger, discomfort and aversion that an individual experiences in interacting with gay individuals,…
   The idea of repressed or latent homosexuality explains “the emotional malaise and irrational attitudes displayed by some individuals who feel guilty about their erotic interests and struggle to deny and repress homosexual impulses.”…

  "We laugh at or make fun of such blatant hypocrisy, but in a real way, these people may often themselves be victims of repression and experience exaggerated feelings of threat," Ryan said. "Homophobia is not a laughing matter. It can sometimes have tragic consequences," as was the case in the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay man.

Regardless of Burke’s, Cordileone’s and the US Catholic Bishops’ futile attempts to disguised (doublespeak) their obsessive hostility towards gay people, for the past 30 years, but especially their excessive concern about gay adult pornography - it all adds up to be a clearer indication of their own internalized homophobia - the unconscious repression of their own individual homosexual orientation urges. Since, Burke and the majority of the members of the hierarchy, though we now know from the Synod 2014 this does not include all - the only source of this information would have to be coming from within themselves  that they are projecting outwards. 

Pinocchio’s Nose & Projections

The more and more Cardinal Burke, Archbishop Cordileone and the US Catholic Bishops are concern about gay adult pornography and continue to emphatically deny and protest that they are not homophobic - like what happened to Pinocchio’s nose when he was lying - their noses just keep growing, and growing (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinocchio_(1940_film). They are not fooling anyone, but in their positions, as members of the Roman Catholic hierarchy  they are hurting everyone, especially children.
Projection
          When an internal impulse provokes too much anxiety, the ego may reduce that anxiety by attributing the unwanted impulse to an external object, usually another person.  This is the defense mechanism of projection, which can be defined as seeing in others unacceptable feelings or tendencies that actually reside in one’s own unconscious (Freud, 1915/1957b)...

...For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude...

 Repressed Homosexual Feelings
...According to Freud (1922/1955), a crucial distinction between projection and paranoia is that paranoia is always characterized by repressed homosexual feelings toward the persecutor. Freud believed that the persecutor is inevitably a former friend of the same sex...When homosexual impulses become too powerful, persecuted paranoiacs defend themselves by reversing these feelings and then projecting them onto their original object. For men, the transformation proceeds as follows. Instead of saying, “I love him,” the paranoid person says, “I hate him.” Because this also produces too much anxiety, he says, “He hates me.” At this point, the person has disclaimed all responsibility and can say, “I like him fine, but he’s got it in for me.” The central mechanism in all paranoia is projection with accompanying delusions of jealousy and persecution…

Therefore, what Cardinal Burke refers to as the “incredibly aggressive homosexual agenda,” is in fact - what exists within himself that he continually disowns by projecting his own incredibly aggressive repressed homosexual urges outward on to others. And having spent a lifetime in this vain pursuit - he has experienced profound unhappiness and even despair. 

Cardinal [Burke] urges pope to take hot-button issues off table for next synod - November 19th, 2014
…Lashing out at the “so-called contraceptive mentality,” he warned it was “anti-life” and blamed it for “the devastation that is daily wrought in our world by the multi-million dollar industry of pornography” and the incredibly aggressive homosexual agenda, which he claimed could only result in “the profound unhappiness and even despair of those affected by it.”…

What Cardinal Burke and US Catholic Bishops, most especially including Cordileone are unaware that it is their obsessive condemnation of homosexuality, as is found from the research above, that is the driving force that increases the spread gay adult pornography. Their obsessive need to condemn gay adult pornography is more revealing of their own repressed gay sexual orientation urges - that have been continuous emerging dating back to their early childhood years. 

Sexual orientation is about the emotion of love - wanting to be loved and wanting to love. The development of a child’s emotional life's is dependent on an empathic caring of a adult caregiver throughout the early childhood years of the child. 

The Lifetime Harmful Effects

In brief, depending on degree of intensity of the lack of empathic caring of a child’s gay emotional sexual orientation development can cause the traumatizing fear of abandonment for the child. Here within lies the lifetime harmful effect caused to a child being attacked for his or her gay sexual orientation - because the child has not only buried - the (1) traumatizing emotional memories of fear, but including the (2) innocent sexual orientation expression of love related to wanting to be loved and wanting to love. 

Additional - Insidious Element
Invisible
Early Childhood Gay Sexual Orientation Abuse

There is another insidious element to early childhood gay sexual orientation abuse and that is - it is not consider child abuse by social and religious norms. In fact, this form of long lasting childhood abuse is more often considered an act of love in raising a child properly according to these socially accepted norms, besides being quite possibly a reenactment of the adult caregiver. This is because it is an invisible form of structural violence.  However, the fact that it has not been unmasked and identified openly by society - it remains a severely harmful even a deadly form of child abuse. Because a victim of this form of abuse, as an adult, is likely to be suffering significantly and will never know why - though all the time unconsciously reenacting this same insidious violent form early childhood gay sexual orientation abuse.  

Socially Recognized Forms of Child Abuse

Unlike other forms of child abuse that are socially recognized continuously, in nearly all institutions of sociality, such as, physical, sexual, neglect, emotional forms of child abuse - a child victim, as an adult - will more than likely received validation of being abused as a child. This validation gives the rational that identifies, and connects - the unidentified emotional distress experienced in adulthood - to the event that was the cause. It is essential to identify and reconnect emotions to their situations that were separated and buried in the unconscious - for healing to begin. 

Socially Unrecognized - Child Abuse
of
“Early Childhood Gay Sexual Orientation Abuse”

However, this is not the case with “early childhood gay sexual orientation abuse,” it is not validated as a form of child abuse by society and therefore - the emotional distress caused by being victimized by this form of child abuse - is only increased and frozen in time -remaining a continuos draining source of a person energy.  And this form of child abuse remaining unidentified socially or by religions - is all the more likely to be a source of unconscious reenactment perpetuating -this form of “early childhood gay sexual orientation abuse” from one generation to the next generation.  

Note:
The following excerpts - from the research work of Selma Fraiberg  bears repeating - endlessly - as a reminder - now crucial it is for all of us, individually, to heed, the ancient Greek oracle “Know thyself.” This is especially crucial for us, as ordained priests, to heed. The following excerpts gives a deeper meaning to the command that Jesus gave us all - regarding removing first removing the plank from our own eye - before attempting to remove the speck from the eye of anyone else. 

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust 
in your brother's eye and pay 
no attention to the plank 
in your own eye? 

How can you say to your brother, 
'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' 
when you yourself fail to see the 
plank in your own eye? 

You hypocrite, 
first take the plank out of your eye, 
and then you will see clearly 
to remove the speck from 
your brother's eye. 
 Luke 6:40-42 

It also, gives new meaning to what happens to us, when we - as a group, individually, have neglected to remove the “plank” from our own eyes, first, and instead - together, we proceed to attempt to remove the “speck” from the eyes of others - we become what Jesus describes as, the “Blind Leading the Blind” and together we all fall into a ditch. It is the first - warning us - regarding the phenomenon known as “groupthink” that has been proven to caused catastrophic events - killing lives. 

Reflections on the Work of 
Professor Selma Fraiberg 
A Pioneer in the Field of Social Work and 
Infant Mental Health
Vivian Shapiro - 2007
...In summary, Selma formulated and investigated hypotheses designed to explain the factors that caused some parents to repeat their own traumatic history with their child, and to raise questions about why some parents, who also had been traumatized did not repeat their history of early trauma. It was more likely, she suggested, that parents who remembered the painful feelings of their childhood, could empathize with their infants, and choose to create a different more positive path of relationships with them. But, those parents who had repressed their feelings of pain and loss had shut off their capacity to feel. They could not empathize with their child. Indeed they had responded to their pain with primitive defense mechanisms of repression and identification with the aggressor and had internalized their parents pathological attachment patterns. They had shut down their feelings of the need for love, but the birth of their dependent infant had reawakened some subliminal feelings within them. However they continued to repress their unacknowledged need for parental empathy and love, and could not respond to their own child’s needs. It was as though the ghosts from the past had risen, and unconsciously these parents built an emotional wall between themselves and their infants...

Ghosts in the Nursery: 
By Selma Fraiberg; Edna Adelson; Vivian Shapiro - 1974
...The parent, it seems, is condemned to repeat the tragedy of his childhood with his own baby in terrible and exacting detail...
...[The baby]...begins to cry. It is a hoarse, eerie cry in a baby...On tape we see the baby in her mother's arms screaming hopelessly; she does not turn to her mother for comfort. The mother looks distant, self-absorbed. She makes an absent gesture to comfort the baby, then gives up. She looks away. The screaming continues for five dreadful minutes on tape...
...As we watched this tape later in a staff session, we said to each other incredulously, "It's as if this mother doesn't hear her baby's cries!" This led us to the key diagnostic question: "Why doesn’t this mother hear her baby’s cries?”
...The answer to the clinical question is already suggested in the mother's story. This is a mother whose own cries have not been heard. There were, we thought, two crying children in the living room. The mother's distant voice, her remoteness and remove we saw as defenses against grief and intolerable pain, Her terrible story had been first given factually, without visible suffering, without tears. All that was visible was the sad, empty, hopeless look upon her face. She had closed the door on the weeping child within herself as surely as she had closed the door upon her crying baby.
'This led us to our first clinical hypothesis: "When this mother's own cries are heard, she will hear her child’s cries.”...

Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this 
child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 
And whoever welcomes one such child in 
my name welcomes me. 
Matthew 18: 3-5



Our sternest warning given to us by Jesus Christ, especially as His ordained disciples - is the protection of children that if not followed will exclude us from ever entering heaven. Christ does not mean - simply observing to see that children are protected. Christ is demanding that we change and become like little children. What does it mean? 

From one psychoanalytic perspective it is by - what can be an arduous and even painful journey remembering back to early childhood years, however, it is in the process of connecting repressed emotions to the events and situations that caused them that - can be renewing and freeing and feeling - a sense of wholeness and well-being. Because in the process of this journey - from personal experience and as a psychologist, from witnessing the transformation in others - especially regarding the “Early Childhood Gay Sexual Orientation Abuse” faithfulness to this journey begins - resolving mounts of shame and guilt - eliminating the need of a lot of self-righteous behavior — and allowing us to be more understanding and accepting of others. But most importantly as, Selma Fraiberg, found from her research - “Ghosts in the Nursery” we become almost immediately evermore vigilant of the care and protection of children that - to ensure that they are never put in situations that we now know were so harmful to us throughout our lives. Because reconnecting to the memories of our early childhood years growing up - remembering being so powerless and vulnerable helps us to be all the more cautious in our protection of children. It is significantly helps to end the perpetuation generational violence. 

All our emotions must be “…recognized, received, and acknowledged” to produce the experience of wholeness and competence, as person. “What we cannot accept lovingly and peaceably we must try to reject and alienate and we must denote it as ‘nonself.’” They then “…must be handled by repression, isolation, projection, and other (fantasy) defenses, which are experienced as externally, imposed “symptoms” (e.g. as incredibly aggressive homosexual agenda).”

emotional self continence is a self evident truth…only consciously acknowledged, and experienced self continence results in a feeling of well being. Illusionally estranged mental elements seem to continue to radiate the painful affects. Getting stuck in such a predicament condemns one to becoming “hypnotized” by the emotions, blocking the ability to pay attention to the message they carry. In such disasters one may devote most of one’s energy to fight and try to block the physiological aspects of emotions, or alternately develop an addiction to hate, pain, shame, envy. It becomes a never-ending self -torturous life style
  …happiness is the natural expression of the appreciated wholeness of human being ... the joy of living consists of a sensitive awareness in the unity of the human nature.” …

Addiction to “Anger and Hate” 

Unfortunately - Cardinal Burke’s long established antigay obsession - most vividly portrays, a person who has devoted nearly all his life's energy in effort to fight off the physiological aspects of the emotions that are related to his sexual orientation. His seemly never ending emotional outbursts of anger on the topic of love, whether regarding homosexual sexual orientation or issues related to divorced and remarried couple receiving Holy Communion - appears to be various forms of an all consuming addiction. From news media reports, his addiction appears to be one of anger and hate, but it may also include pain, shame, and envy. 

It is noted that the level of intensity of Burke’s emotional outbursts - seem to be consistently at the same high degree of intensity that renders him completely resistant to any outside attempts of negotiation, or discussion. He appears not only to be inconsolable - but he also tends to lean towards being irrational. It is this form of addiction of anger and hate that appears to be shared and possibly the basis of his friendships and his accomplices. And what seems common with most addictions - “misery loves company” - they gather together share and exacerbate their intoxication of hate and anger with each other. Maintaining extreme and constant states of - anger and hate  though painful - they are able to block out other more unpleasant feelings, just like any other kind of substance and drug addiction. 

“Crack House” & Vatican-Curia-Hierarchy
Repressed Homosexuals  Photo 

There are some news media networks, organizations, that promote and sustain the anger and hate addiction, some appear no different than a “crack house” or“drug house.” Considering how (process, the criterion) and who was involved in the selection of the members of the curia and the hierarchy over the last 30 years is it any wonder - why the majority of these members (though not all) are adamantly antigay. And why no member is able to offer an authoritative rationale - combining science and religion - to support their position on homosexuality.

Though, 226 - 5 - US Catholic Bishops, including Cardinal BurkeCordileone - have been concerned about the pervasive amounts of gay adult pornography that is on the Internet, since November 12, 2013. One would think that if they have time enough to become familiar with the widespread amounts of gay adult pornography on the Internet, they could at the same time surf the Internet to do a extensive and thorough investigation of the authoritative research data on the topic of gay adult pornography, before writing any statement on the topic. The fact that it does not occur to them to be researching the science on the subject of gay adult pornography - in order to gather as much documentation as possible - before writing any statement to give the Catholics of the USA - is not reassuring sign. Nor - is it an example of responsible Roman Catholic Church hierarchical leadership.
This is both frightfully alarming and equally as sad, at the same time. Because it is one more example that indicates that they adult victims of “Early Childhood Gay Sexual Orientation Abuse” and that they are a product of the selection criterion for choosing members for the curia and hierarchy.

1986 - Red Flags - Draconian Measures 

The first red flags (warnings of danger) that were raised identifying - the change in - the irregularity, and the inconstancy of this selection process were first publicly identified in 1986, by Archbishop Weakland, Wisconsin - in a statement he made in defense against the Draconian measures used against Archbishop Hunthausen. It was notably recognized that Weakland was addressing his remarks - directly at the clerics, picked to work in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. He forthrightly denounced the selection criterion and the severe lack of credential of the clerics already picked. It is speculative thought that Weakland was aiming his attack at one particular cleric.

“Amateurs-Turned-Theologians
Headhunters -30 years

Weakland stated that the clerics were “amateurs-turned-theologians easily became headhunters and leaders were picked (on the basis of) the rigidity of their doctrine, so that often second-rate and repressive minds, riding on the waves of fear, took over. Religion under such circumstances then can become an ideology that tolerates no obstacle and that values ideas more than people,” …

It has been noted that the CDF attack on Archbishop Hunthausen appeared staged, as an intimidation tactic - as a warning to other bishops and theologians who started the intergrading process of dialogue and discussion - regarding authoritative emerging science on homosexuality and theology. This fact has been proven to be true, as well as, the cruel and demeaning, intimidation tactics  - as evident over the last 30 years. From this time 1980s onwards, a paralyzing fear began spreading slowly throughout the Catholic Church. 

Incremental - Bureaucratic - dehumanization 
Early Childhood - Genocide

The Holocaust was the systematic, bureaucratic, state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi regime and its collaborators. "Holocaust" is a word of Greek origin meaning "sacrifice by fire." The Nazis, who came to power in Germany in January 1933, believed that Germans were "racially superior" and that the Jews, deemed "inferior," were an alien threat to the so-called German racial community…

And so began the dummying process of Catholic education, especially theology, where once truth was held as inseparable from God - now a dark cloud like cancer was slowly beginning to spread over the planet.  It was like - let us pretend that the sun actually - really does revolve earth. And the blatant dehumanization human beings was going into full swing - direct from of all places the Vatican - the selection of “Amateurs-Turned-Theologians became “Headhunters” ( - a member of a society that collects the heads of dead enemies as trophies). On  October 1, 1986 Cardinal Ratzinger issued from the: —

CONGREGATION FOR THE DOCTRINE OF THE FAITH
LETTER TO THE BISHOPS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
ON THE PASTORAL CARE OF HOMOSEXUAL PERSONS



Photo

Cardinal Ratzinger issued this letter- at the height of the AIDS epidemic (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) in the USA. All that is missing from this death document is the poisonous gas  the pesticide —Zyklon B (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich_Himmler). From a clinical perspective this letter - it is an extraordinary document in ways expressing the inhuman terrorizing and traumatic situations that have been inflicted on an extremely bright and gifted gay child growing up in the irrational social environment of Hitler’s Nazi Regime. It appears to be a highly intellectual representation of an extremely intricate form of denial of a child being exposed to  an intolerable situation lasting for the duration for several years. This letter October 1986, as such, also represents how severely children are harmed for life who are unprotected from the dehumanizing violent adult behavior - it is a larger and extremely more pervasive scale of how children who only witness scenes of domestic violence suffer from the same long lasting effects, as if they were the actual victims of the domestic violence - they only witnessed.  


Behind Closed Doors
The Impact of Domestic
Violence on Children
UNICEF
Child Protection Section Programme
United Nations

What do children need? We know the answer from our own childhoods. First and foremost, children need a safe and secure home, free of violence, and parents that love and protect them. They need to have a sense of routine and stability, so that when things go wrong in the outside world, home is a place of comfort, help and support.
For too many children, home is far from a safe haven. Every year, hundreds of millions of children are exposed to domestic violence at home, and this has a powerful and profound impact on their lives and hopes for the future.1 These children not only watch one parent violently assaulting another, they often hear the distressing sounds of violence, or may be aware of it from many telltale signs…
…Violence in the home is one of the most pervasive human rights challenges of our time. It remains a largely hidden problem that few countries, communities or families openly confront. Violence in the home is not limited by geography, ethnicity, or status; it is a global phenomenon…

The extermination of 6 million - Jewish people, including children by the Hitler and the Nazi Regime began by increments of a systematic plan to isolate “…them from German society and by eliminating them from the German economy, removing any opportunity for them to make a living in Germany.” It is frightening to realize that this is the exact deadly strategy used against  the person with the protocol number 20131723/F - and was used against so many before me and that only increased after me. And it has been 18 years, after my “coming out” March 1997 for the protection of gay children growing up and since then I have - been continuously attacked and the lack of protection by the Vatican for clerics, theologians and religious - is evidence that truth is still not of any grave importance to the curia.




Pope Francis - Restoring Truth photo

This statement, above,  - most definitely excludes Pope Francis and those members of the hierarchy who supported the protection gay children and the welcoming of gay people, during and after the Synod 2014. There is evidence that these hierarchal members - together with  Pope Francis - this man who came from Argentina, at the age of 76 - who spent his life walking among and caring for the poor - accepted the job as Pope - that caught the attention of the world — there is evidence even at the grassroots that a contagion (social psychology term - the rapid transmission of emotions or behavior through a crowd) effect appears to be occurring. It is an unpretentious contagion effect - much in the style of Pope Francis that has been noticed - mirroring the same simplicity of his expressing support for gay people in July 2013, like it was a no brainer, of course - gay people deserve the same respect and dignity as the rest of humanity. Pope Francis was restoring  restoring the human dignity of not gay people and gay children - but of all human beings, no one is excluded.

Emotional Contagion and Empathy
Elaine Hatfield
Richard L. Rapson
Yen-Chi L. Le
Most clinical and counseling psychologists have identified three distinct skills required in true empathy: the ability to share the other person’s feelings, the cognitive ability to intuit what another person is feeling, and a “socially beneficial” intention to respond compassionately to that person’s distress. Scholars from various disciplines, including sociology, biology, neuroscience, social psychology, and life-span psychology, argue that primitive emotional contagion—a basic building block of human interaction that allows people to understand and to share the feelings of others—can shed light on human cognition, emotion, and behavior. This chapter discusses emotional contagion and describes three stages in the process of emotional contagion: mimicry, feedback, and contagion.

It is a contagion effect of human empathy - because Pope Francis’s example - much like St. Francis, is not ambiguous - the rules and goals are clear - care for the poor - those most in need  and all the marginalized. The required skills and knowledge is whatever you have - will be of grave importance just doing your best. Pope Francis’s example is backed up by his history of living a simple lifestyle, riding the buses, cooking his meals - not focused so much on words but on actual caring for the poor - one-to-one at times. 

Hitler & Nazi Regime - 1920s-1945
Irrational Biased Use of Science - Racial Purity 
Benedict XVI -born 1927

Pope Benedict XVI was born into and grew up in a social environment was becoming saturated - with the Irrational Biased Use of Science of Racial Purity. Through, Benedict XVI’s adult life, especially his 32 years in the top two highest position in the Vatican - it is clinically observable to see how deeply children throughout their early childhood years can be severely harmed for life growing up in dehumanizing social environments like the Nazi Regime. We can also see how inhuman violence is past from generation to generation through innocent children. Benedict XVI lived through for the first 18 years of his existence growing up - one of the most severely dehumanizing social environments that calculating the multiple forms of child abuse and the duration they were repeated - would be quite traumatizing even for a clinical researcher. Regardless, with all forms of child abuse, as adults - they are likely to be reenacted endlessly throughout  their adult lives and mostly unconsciously

Benedict XVI - Early Childhood Years
Exposed to
Nazi Himmler- Dehumanization of Homosexuals

The most salient form of child abuse that Benedict obsessively  reenacted throughout his 32 years of adult life in the Vatican was the dehumanization of homosexuals.  This also includes the learned abuse of science that pervasive throughout Hitler and the Nazi Regime time in power. The top Nazi leader - next to Hitler was Heinrich Himmler, born a Catholic, documentation indicates was himself a repressed homosexual. 


"One Day They Were Simply Gone"
The Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals
Rictor Norton
Brief Excerpt:
Heinrich Himmler
The one man most directly responsible for the Nazi persecution of homosexuals was Heinrich Himmler. We have already noted that he was a fanatic heterosexualist. On the other side of the coin, he was a fanatic anti-homosexualist. By early 1937 gay men were being purged from his SS troups at the rate of merely one a month, but in that year Himmler gave a speech branding homosexuals as mentally diseased, effeminate, cowardly, liars, traitors, irresponsible and disloyal.
In his address to the Bad Tölz conference he ordered that gay SS men should be routed outstripped of rankexpelledcourt martialed, and imprisoned for the duration allowed by Paragraph 175. This was accompanied by private instructions to his generals:

After serving the sentence imposed by the court, they will, on my instructions, be taken to a concentration camp and there shot while attempting to escape.

..Himmler was also directly responsible for much of the anti-gay propaganda drummed into the masses. For example, he enlisted the help of scholars to prove that the "noble" race of ancient Germans solved the problem by drowning homosexuals in bogs and fens. Professor Eckhardt of Berlin University, the authority on legal history, said:

In assessing the racially pernicious sympton of degeneracy known as homosexuality, we must revert to the Nordic principle that degenerates should be exterminated.

Himmler's own belief is summed up in a statement he made to Felix Kersten in 1940: "The homosexuals must be entirely eliminated.”

Destruction of a Child’s Development 
Empathy

Point here that needs further investigation is sexual orientation is related to a child’d development of empathy - the ability to feel one with another human being, as it is a natural stage of the human psychological development for all children.  It is at this stage of the psychological development of a child who has a gay or bisexual sexual orientation that is damage in varying degrees of severity that leads to the under development of empathy or even the non-existence of empathy.

Sociopathic Violence

It is at this stage that the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms are most damaging, in varying degrees of severity  to a child’s development of empathy of those children with a gay or bisexual sexual orientation.  The long lasting lifetime harmful effects caused the to child’s development of empathy from the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms are related to the child’s inability to form lifelong relationships and instead leading to varying degrees of sociopathic violence committed again others. It increases and perpetuates the violence in the world. 

Microcosm
Selection Criterion  
Unsubstantiated Antigay Social and Religious Norms
Mutilation of a Child’s Life 

Destroying a child’s ability to empathize with another and other human beings leads to sociopathic violent behavior that has been observed in adult victims of this form of “Early Childhood Gay - Bisexual Sexual Orientation Abuse (ECG-BSOA)” in their obsessive reenactments repeated throughout their adult lives. Tragically, this has been demonstrated by Benedict XVI and Cardinal Burke and including a number of the members the curia and the hierarchy. Photo

They represent a microcosm of the world of how the lives of children are mutilated for life by the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms that is ECG-BSOA. Including the perpetuation of the ever increasing violence in the world. 

But we can also observe the lifetime struggles of a never-ending self -torturous life style, that follows from ECG-BSOA: (1) - the obsessive reenactments, (2) -the obsessive projections of their homosexuals urges (presently - Burke and Cordileone and the US Catholic Bishops - obsessive concern about the pervasive amounts of gay adult pornography they found on the Internet), (3) the never ending problematic relational complications at home and at work - stemming from the lifetime damage caused to the developmental process of empathy (to feel one with another - the binding force of all humanity) .

In addition - we can observe - the cumulative effect of all the above in (4) the exhaustive amounts personal energy expended repressing constant homosexual urges and how it is - (5) preventing them from reaching their full human potential - feeling productive and resourceful and contributing to the betterment of society, and instead (6) leaving them often in a depressive often agitated state of mind. 

The tremendous lost of human potential that globally -is daily - has a severe catastrophic effect on the world. 

It must be remembered that it is 90% of the world’s population that is harmed by ECG-BSOA that is significantly fueled by - the Unsubstantiated Antigay Social and Religious Norms. In consideration to the above observations of the Microcosm - of the members of the curia and hierarchy - as adult victims of Early Childhood Gay - Bisexual Sexual Orientation Abuse” - it should be clear from a global authoritative perspective that -gay marriage - is in no way a threat to humanity or the destruction of the world. It is clear that the cumulative effect caused the Unsubstantiated Antigay Social and Religious Norms that has been obsessively fueled by the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings and the hostility Benedict and Burke used to suppress the authoritative science on homosexuality and sexual orientation - this the real threat to humanity or the destruction of the world. 

It should be quite apparent - that from the above observation how ridiculous the obsessive concern about gay adult pornography is of Burke and Cordileone and the US Catholic Bishops about the pervasive amounts of gay adult pornography they found on the Internet - is - realizing the fact they are the major contributors to it by their denial and repression of their sexual orientation.


Someday, maybe, there will exist 
a well-informed, well considered and yet fervent public conviction that the most deadly of all possible sins is the mutilation of a child’s spirit. 
Erik Erikson 
Kids Are Being Hurt!!!



The forced exclusion of any mention, open discussion of the authoritative science homosexuality for the past 60 years, including the hostile tactics used to silence, intimidate, remove, destroy reputations to create a paralyzing fear to assure the continuous suppression of this science. 

It is representation of an individual’s severe internal attempts to  assure complete repression of homosexual urges that is forever keep surfacing. The fierce obsessive antigay crusade for over the last 30 years, are the endless reenactments of a terrorized child growing up under the Hitler’s Nazi Regime, who was endlessly traumatized by Himmler’s obsessive dehumanizing public statements condemning homosexuals as the threat to Germany’s survival (at that time Germany was still suffering from the devastation of defeat of WWI - that left many Germans to the point of starving). Himmler was forcefully declaring homosexuals had to be exterminated

Irrational biased use of science

It is startling to realize from the historical facts how closely - Cardinal Ratzinger (Benedict XVI) - and his protégé Cardinal Burke - were following the same incremental steps of the  - systematic plan designed by Hitler and the Nazi Regime-  based on their irrational biased use of science - to fit their diabolical ideology of racial purity of the Arian race - as the master race - directed at removing the Jewish people from Germany. The extermination of 6 million Jewish people was not their intent in the beginning. 

Culmination of Sin 

It was like with all sin - that begins with continuous - small steps. This continues - until we are so far inside, involved and acclimated to our self-deception that we are not doing anything wrong that - what’s just a few more steps - until we are completely committed to doing evil. This all begins with the spreading of gossip (false dehumanizing propaganda) and people not checking the facts, but believing the gossip to be true.

This was the basis, the foundation of Hitler and Nazi Regime - it was not built on truth. It began with Hitler and the Nazi Party - refusal to accept truth - any truth - (1) the reality of their situation in Germany after the first World War and (2) falsely began - scapegoated the Jewish people. 

Abandoning truth - no one was safe and the cancer began to grow - unchallenged - it escalated their ultimate destruction and  deaths of 70 million people at the end of World War II. Photo


"FINAL SOLUTION"
It remains uncertain as to when the Nazi leadership decided to implement the "Final Solution," the plan to annihilate the Jews of Europe. The genocide of the Jews was the culmination of a decade of German policy under Nazi rule and the realization of a core goal of the Nazi dictator, Adolf Hitler.

BEFORE WORLD WAR II 

In the years of Nazi rule before World War II, policies of persecution and segregation targeting German Jews focused on the goal of expulsion. After the Nazi party seized power in 1933, state-sponsored racism generated anti-Jewish legislation, boycotts, "Aryanization," and massive street violence, as in the Kristallnacht (commonly known as the "Night of Broken Glass") pogroms. With all of these measures, the Nazi leaders sought to drive the Jews out of Germany by systematically isolating them from German society and by eliminating them from the German economy, removing any opportunity for them to make a living in Germany…

A fuller understanding of Benedict XVI
Traumatizing 
early childhood years 
under Hitler’s Nazi Regime

A fuller understanding of Benedict XVI early childhood years growing up under Hitler’s Nazi Regime - though extremely traumatizing even for an adult attempt to fully realize - further validates the immediacy for my “coming out” in March 1997. It also validates - my absolute resolve, and refusal - as a priest, in good conscience - a well-formed conscience - to be coerced - intimated - or submitted to any semblance of supervision that would any way negate the reasons why I came out. 

Fierce Unrelenting Anger
In 
Defense of Gay Children

It also, explains - my fierce unrelenting anger and laser condemnation of Bishop Walter Hurley’s ruthless and deceptive tactics against me, cutting off my medical insurance,  then publicly in to the Grand Rapids Press, May 2006, disclosing the cost of my insurance coverage of the my personal psychotherapy sessions. The truth is that those sessions were needed as a direct result of the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings. I was willing to sacrifice my life for the lives of children, who would of thought that that act would be a novel, and unconventional occurrence for the members the Roman Catholic hierarchy and curia. Hurley made the statement that I was obstinate - in the Grand Rapids Press - May 2006. http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2014/05/may-27-2006-bishop-hurley-slanders-fr.html   He has no idea what obstinate means- or - what it means sacrifice your life for others, to be a priest, and absolutely nothing about - Truth. He has caused great harm and in most cases would be considered severely life-threatening. It has been said of him - by many professionals that he is deceitful and ruthless. He is a liar,  a cold-blooded murder— so many times over - long, long, long before - he ever came near to me.  And who, in the curia, is going to investigate the priests lives that he has destroyed ?  Or aren’t priests considered human beings? 

Persona Non Grata
June 1997
Refusing to Abandon the Protection 
Gay Children 

The confirmation of how I have been treated by Hurley and Burke - in  June 1997 - being ordered to consent to be sent away to be reeducated on the subject of sexual orientation. It was followed by being denied my learned sabbatical terms to study psychology and told we only need more canon lawyers and liturgists (i.e. Burke). I was very clear I was persona non grata - and I would be treated like a criminal - all meant to discredit me and the reasons why I came out. In the same way, described in Bishop Walkowiak letter to me dated - November 26, 2013 -
As, I have already explained - the only safe route I had left in 1997- as a priest, was to to study to psychology on my own, which at a great sacrifice. And, after enormous setbacks - as I was beginning to managed to continue studying and my priestly duties. It was not long that I began experiencing out-of-the-ordinary periodic, unexplainable - abrupt endings of close friendships, with colleagues, and professional relationships. 

Bush & Ratzinger
Dehumanization - Duet  - July 2003
Gay Marriage

They all began a few months after Cardinal Ratzinger in July 2003 issued a statement against gay marriage attacking gay people on day after US President George Bush spoke against same-sex marriage. Photo

It unconsciously triggered the memory of being traumatized - a few months earlier in 2003. I happened when all the data I had been gathering, arduously working on a qualitative research project I was doing on the Holocaust, and - in one split-second - all the data came flashing together from several different academic perspectives - like focusing the lens of a camera - revealing a vivid traumatizing picture of unimaginable magnitude and horror of a highly premeditated systematic process of human beings - exterminating millions of men, women, teenagers, children, infants, exactly like putting them on a conveyor belt - at any one of the many automobile production factories here in Detroit. I described being traumatized in more detail in the posting:

Reposting

It is, however, the same traumatizing memory that makes it overwhelming for me to even attempt imagine the multiple forms of child abuse, incalculable number of times they took place and the duration they continued throughout Benedict XVI - early childhood years and lasting until he was 18 years. I first experienced this traumatizing effect beginning to come over me while writing - Part 2 - Ghosts in the - Synod 2014 - 1/16/15  http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2015/03/repost-cold-blooded-murderers-revised.html

In July 2003- this kind of blatant dehumanization of gay people had never before happened - in my lifetime up to that point. Pope John Paul II never tolerated such an overt public dehumanization of gay people before. It must have been that Pope John Paul II became incapacitated and confined to bed, at that time. Again, it was not only the words that Ratzinger used - that bad enough, but that they were (1) globally publicly stated from the Vatican of the (2) Roman Catholic Church - with a (3) complete disregard of their dignity as human beings.  And (4) no one in the leadership of Roman Catholic Church said or did anything to publicly reprimand him and make a public amends 
for his blatant humanization of group of people. And furthermore there was (5) no global leader publicly condemning Ratzinger’s statement. And lastly, (6) there no public outcry of Roman Catholics globally. Instead the most revolting and despicable action taken by the Roman Catholic leadership was behind closed doors - sent a (7) spy to monitor me! And Bishop Walter Hurley ranking in this regard (8) is that he going need a lot more than two priests flanking him for protection (February 2008) when he tries his ruthless and deceitful legal canonical and civil antics at the last judgment, explaining, though not limited to, his dehumanizing protocol number 20131723/F.

…It comes a day after US President George Bush - a Methodist Christian - spoke out against the idea of same-sex marriages… 

Vatican fights Gay Marriages – July 31, 2003
          The Vatican has launched a global campaign against gay marriages, warning Catholic politicians that support of same-sex unions is "gravely immoral."
…the 12-page document by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said Thursday…
…It is the second time this year the Vatican has formally issued the instruction, and mirrors similar comments made by U.S. President George W. Bush Wednesday…


In, September 2003, a month after Ratzinger made dehumanizing attack against gay people I spoke in a homily at a mass  at Dignity-Detroit, in support of gay children and the harm of the unsubstantiated statements that Ratzinger made against gay people. And after the mass, I was approached by people in attendance who reported to me that someone came in - dressed in black just before I started  my homily and left immediately afterwards. I remembered seeing the man dressed in black coming in before the homily and sitting down in the back of the chapel. In a split-second - I thought - if - a spy - a closeted gay  - no life - a miserable poor soul - sad and lonely existence - no moral integrity - like Judas - go do your deed. And that was the last I thought of him and I went on with my homily. 

When you have already spent weeks - as I did in March 1997-  agonizing  endlessly about all the violent possibilities that might happened to you by “coming out” and the one singled priority - the protection of children  - continued to remain the final trump card - meaning regardless whatever happens to me - children must come first. You would have had to had a similar experience of facing your own death to understand what I am trying to put into words. So, some man dressed in black - who if a spy - is indeed - a very sad person.

Safety 
Children Growing Up Gay 
Somewhere Over The Rainbow 




Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I've heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
High above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

Salt is good, 
but if it loses its saltiness, 
how can you make it salty again?
Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other. 
Mark 9:50


The Cost of Being a Disciple
Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said:  “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.  And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:25-27

Truth & Freedom 

Only the truth will set us free - choosing anything other then the truth - regardless how alluring or its popularity will enslave us by exhausting us of our energy and resources, while robbing us of life and love, as well as, harming others.  

Choosing truth will demand everything within us, exhausting us to the point that it will feel like we are going lose our lives, which is a possibility, as well as, separating us from family and friends.  But in the end - it expands us - feeling in someways more alive than ever- leaving us with a deep sense of peace allowing to be at peace with the world.  

Stagnation

A commitment to search for truth is a never ending lifetime process that is always exhausting and expanding us and in this process we are helping others. A commitment to truth means - first, that we are willing to courageously face the total truth about ourselves - our deepest darkest secrets.  It is no easy task and one that last throughout our lives.  The refusal to face the truth about ourselves - leads us to unconsciously reenacting, as adults, the abuse and or violence we may have been victims of, as children - on to others.

Never-Ending 
Self-Torturous Life Style

It is the unpleasant emotions connected to our painful memoirs that if not recognized and acknowledged - stay buried in our unconscious minds, but there they remain active disrupting our lives - exhausting us of our energy to keep them buried - stagnating our emotional growth - leading us to the likely possibility of any number of never ending addictive behaviors. 

Developmental Progress of Emotions
Continues Through Life
The genetic view of emotions There is a gradual and orderly development of the human capacity to experience emotions. There is evidence from developmental neuro-science and psychophysiology correlated with clinical observations, developmental psychology and our own longitudinal studies of the importance of the genetic aspects of emotions. All these sources have provided evidence of the developmental progress of emotions during infancy, toddler age, latency, and adolescence. In fact, it continues through all of our lives…
The genetic development of affects hinges on the availability of empathic caring, and a responsive holding environment…
Emotions recognized, received, and acknowledged, produce the experience of wholeness and competence. What we cannot accept lovingly and peaceably we must try to reject and alienate and we must denote it as ‘nonself.’” …Our memories, wishes, representations of ourselves and of our objects [a person or thing to which a specified action or feeling is directed] must be consciously accepted, tolerated, accommodated to, and, hopefully, utilized to one’s advantage. Otherwise they must be handled by repression, isolation, projection, and other (fantasy) defenses, which are experienced as externally, imposed “symptoms.” …emotional self continence is a self evident truth…only consciously acknowledged, and experienced self continence results in a feeling of well being. Illusionally estranged mental elements seem to continue to radiate the painful affects. Getting stuck in such a predicament condemns one to becoming “hypnotized” by the emotions, blocking the ability to pay attention to the message they carry. In such disasters one may devote most of one’s energy to fight and try to block the physiological aspects of emotions, or alternately develop an addiction to hate, pain, shame, envy. It becomes a never-ending self -torturous life style
…happiness is the natural expression of the appreciated wholeness of human being ... the joy of living consists of a sensitive awareness in the unity of the human nature.” …


The Study of Happiness and Creativity

We will only find happiness and fulfillment, in life, by being part of something that is greater than ourselves - to be part of all that is true, loving and good that demands our total involvement of all we have within us to accomplish.  It will bringing us to a state of complete absorption of all our attention - to the point where time loses its meaning - either experiencing seconds seeming to last like hours or hours seeming to past like seconds. In the end we feel exhausted - but in some way we will know we have become more of who we were meant to be.  We will have a sense of well-being and peace that no one can take away and that no one can give us. Photo

In this way we become the salt of the earth - helping to increase all that is true, loving and good in the world - adding true joy and peace - while preventing corruption from increasing.  It all begins in our search for truth, which is what it means to - Love the Lord our God with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our mind and with all our strength. And to Love our  neighbor as ourself (Mark 12:30-31).

The process described above that leads to happiness - has been the research study of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. 

In his book — Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, he describes that “The best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times… The best moments usually occur if a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.” ~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (1990, p. 3)  Photo

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi discovered that people find genuine satisfaction during a state of consciousness called Flow. In this state they are completely absorbed in an activity, especially an activity which involves their creative abilities. During this “optimal experience” they feel “strong, alert, in effortless control, unselfconscious, and at the peak of their abilities.”  http://www.pursuit-of-happiness.org/history-of-happiness/mihaly-csikszentmihalyi/

Historical sources hint that Michelangelo may have painted the ceiling of the Vatican's Sistine Chapel while in a flow state. It is reported that he painted for days at a time, and he was so absorbed in his work that he did not even stop for food or sleep until he reached the point of passing out. After this, he would wake up refreshed and, upon starting to paint again, re-enter a state of complete absorption.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_(psychology Photo

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi “…is a Hungarian psychology professor, who emigrated to the United States at the age of 22. Now at Claremont Graduate University, he is the former head of the department of psychology at the University of Chicago and of the department of sociology and anthropology at Lake Forest College.  Csikszentmihalyi is noted for his work in the study of happiness and creativity, but is best known as the architect of the notion of flow and for his years of research and writing on the topic…” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mihaly_Csikszentmihalyi  - - & - - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_(psychology)).

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is one of the pioneers of the scientific study of happiness. He was born in Hungary in 1934 and, like many of his contemporaries, he was touched by the Second World War in ways that deeply affected his life and later work. During his childhood, he was put in an Italian prison. It was here, amid the misery and loss of family and friends during the war, that he had his first inkling of his seminal work in the area of flow and optimal experience. In an interview, he noted, “I discovered chess was a miraculous way of entering into a different world where all those things didn’t matter. For hours I’d just focus within a reality that had clear rules and goals” (Sobel, D. (1995, January). Interview: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Omni, 73-90.)…

Benedict XVI and Burke

Over the past 30 years the members of the Roman curia and the members of the hierarchy, though not all - ceased to be the salt of the earth by using all their energy collectively refusing to accept or even to discuss the truth from the science of homosexual sexual orientation.  The global visibility of their excessively intense emotional obsessiveness to maintain the an absolute denial of truth of homosexuality for the past 30 years is clearly an observable situation that they, as a cohesive group, have become completely entrenched and enslaved in - an all penetrating darkness they believe to the light.  

Stagnation & Isolation 

It has led to their pervasive stagnation and isolation that has not only destroyed their lives, but the lives of millions, including children  and for generations to come.  Dr. Henry Krystal has described the tragic situation that evolves for someone - when extremely unpleasant and disturbing emotions are forcefully denied and unacknowledged. It is futile attempt to suppress the truth of any unpleasant emotion - exhausting our energy to do anything else, because they will always remain active disrupting our lives, or developing into addictions “… to hate, pain, shame, envy. It becomes a never-ending self -torturous life style.” As quoted above:

…Illusionally estranged mental elements seem to continue to radiate the painful affects. Getting stuck in such a predicament condemns one to becoming “hypnotized” by the emotions, blocking the ability to pay attention to the message they carry. In such disasters one may devote most of one’s energy to fight and try to block the physiological aspects of emotions, or alternately develop an addiction to hate, pain, shame, envy. It becomes a never-ending self -torturous life style
“happiness is the natural expression of the appreciated wholeness of human being ... the joy of living consists of a sensitive awareness in the unity of the human nature.” …


Denying Truth - Destroying Lives 
Perpetuating 
Antigay - Structural Violence 

This pervasive denial of truth - has not only destroyed their lives, but from their global positions, as adults - they have been perpetuating the same unsubstantiated irrational - antigay structural violence that they were taught to believe was the true light, as children in the form of unconscious reenactments. This is especially true of Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal Burke who are victims of this form of child abuse caused by the severity of the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms that penetrated their social environments, as children.  As adults they have unconsciously been reenacting this same antigay structural violence that they were endlessly exposed as very young children. 

Children
Recreating Historical Terror 

It surprising how vividly their reenactments represent their historical past situations of ruthlessly suppressing any trace of open discussion on the topic by silencing and removing anyone in the Church. This includes establishing the same paralyzing fear that is historically documented by the events of the Nazi leader, Himmler and the US Senator Joseph McCarthy (1947-1957) from their past - recreating it throughout the Catholic Church.  Their antigay reenactments set a global example (1) that is permissible to arbitrarily dehumanize any group human beings (2) refusing to accept the truth of the science of homosexuality and  (3) silencing, threatening, removing and using character assassination tactics to destroy the credibility of anyone who opposed them. In this way their global example was a blue print to initiated corruption to furnish - globally.

Importance of Argentina  

Since, Pope Francis’s arrival on the scene - being a personality born and raised on a completely different continent separated: (1) from the long lasting harmful effects for those who were exposed to the atrocities of Hitler and the Nazi Regime and (2) including from the USA National demagoguery of McCarthy.  It would allow Pope Francis to possibly observe more clearly the pervasive dehumanizing devastation caused by the extremely obsessive antigay campaign lasting over 30 years - not only to gay people but by neglect to people globally, especially the poor. This act alone in July 2013 immediately - dislodged the stagnation of the Vatican’s curia and the hierarchy obsessive condemnation of gay people and got the Roman Catholic Church back on course directly in line with Jesus Christ. Photo

Truth

Pope Francis on numerous occasions has addressed the stagnation of the Vatican’s curia - attempting to redirect their focus back onto the truth for them to regain their freedom and to end the destruction of the lives of others, especially children - globally.  In so doing - Pope Francis is attempting to put an end to the perpetuation of this form of generational violence.  

Encouraging Open Dialogue 

He began by reactivating the importance of lots of open dialogue - to make waves and not to worry about being silenced or attacked.  In so doing he stressed the Catholic Church teaching regarding the importance of the individual conscience releasing it from authoritarian rule. He announced the organization of the Synod on family and initiated the need for the input from everyone.  He set the example of how to put the universal inclusiveness back into meaning of the Roman Catholic Church dignifying the importance of every human being.  He instructed the whole Church to reach out the least and marginalized people those most in the world.  He did this by word as well as, by example.  However, he started his papacy with a long history of meeting and talking with the poor on a regular basis.  He made it quite clear that he does not want adorers but co-workers. 

I Am A Sinner

He was focusing our whole hearts, minds and souls on the truth of Jesus Christ, as co-workers with trying to be faithful to all of Christ’s teachings and his jovial welcoming and engaging with anyone and everyone - was powerfully convincing of a life facing the truth.  He plainly revealed he is no saint but that he is literally a sinner was more powerful than any papal document.  It was a remarkable way to encouraged the value each human being - no matter how much or how far we may have fallen from the truth - we still have value and the dignity of being created by God and that there is still always hope and acceptance for us to begin again.  

Nero & Roman Curia & US Congress?
Global - Wildfires 

Over the past 30 years the members of the Roman curia and the members of the hierarchy, though not all - cease to be the salt of the earth by refusing to accept even to discuss the truth from the science of homosexual sexual oration. Instead, ruthlessly suppressing any trace of open discussion on the topic by silencing and removing anyone in the Church - establishing paralyzing fear throughout the Catholic Church - that set a global example (1) of dehumanizing human beings and (2) refusing the truth of the science of homosexuality. In this way they allow corruption to furnish globally.

They reach a stage of stagnation totally absorbed in their collective denial of their repressed homosexuality that leaves them completely unconcerned about anyone’s life but their own.  They have been totally obsessive for the past 30 year - about homosexuality, gender theory and gay adult pornography and unconcerned about the destruction of the well-being and lives of human beings, globally.  

As the world has been going up in flames from the devastating effects of climate change - lethally harming the lives of millions being exacerbated by the unchecked increase of global greed - they (Burke) are consumed with fighting to resurrected decadent mass vestments outlawed by Vatican II.

From the Vatican, they are reminiscent of Nero ( ad 37–68), the Roman emperor 54–68; infamous for his cruelty, who played his violin as he watched - fire destroy Rome in 64.  Their indifference to the millions adults and children suffering in the world, especially in the global positions they hold in the Roman Catholic Church sets a powerful example that continues to be exploited to fuel global greed.

“Republican proposed a 40% cut in Nasa’s budget for earth sciences last week.”

Republicans' leading climate denier tells the pope to butt out of climate debate - 11 June 2015 
…Oklahoma senator James Inhofe, who now chairs the Senate environment and public works committee despite famously calling global warming “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people”, took a star turn on Thursday at the Heartland Institute, whose conferences function as a hub for climate deniers.
His message – that “God is still up there” and that Pope Francis should mind his own business – sent a clear signal to his fellow conservatives: climate sceptics have a loyal – and newly powerful – friend in Congress.
Actually, there was more than one: Lamar Smith, the Texas congressman who heads the science, space and technology committee, raised cheers from the room when he said he proposed a 40% cut in Nasa’s budget for earth sciences last week.
In the world outside, anticipation was building for the pope to deliver his much-awaited encyclical next week, when he is expected to cast climate change as a moral issue.
On Thursday, Democratic senators Sheldon Whitehouse and Brian Schatz launched a carbon-fee bill – and got a respectful hearing – at the American Enterprise Institute, the leading conservative thinktank, in a possible sign that the uniform opposition to political climate solutions may be softening. And on Monday, leaders of the G7 industrial countries committed to phasing out fossil fuels by the end of the century.
For Inhofe, however, steeped in an oil industry that has contributed nearly $2m to his lifetime political career, it will always be that winter day in the Senate earlier this year, when he tossed a snowball across the Senate floor as evidence there is no such thing as climate change. He reprised the stunt with an image repeating over and over on the screen behind him here on Thursday…

Antigay - Social Environments - Lethal
Children Growing Up Gay 

Overall, the disruption of a child’s sexual orientation that is homosexual is more pervasive, because it has a social environmental component that does not exist for children who have a heterosexual orientation. This is because heterosexual orientation is exclusively dominant in the social environment and homosexual orientation until most recently was non-existent. This fact alone has a negative impact that is disruptive to a child’s natural development with a homosexual orientation.  It is a form of structural violence that though it is independent from the home environment - it also impacts it. This social environmental violence can either be lessened or increased depending on the parenting style that the child is subjected to. 



Update: June 8, 2015

Two Global Examples 
Reenactments of Structural Violence 
Gay People

Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal Burke both men - throughout their childhood years were victims of multiple forms of extended child abuse, inherent in the structural violence indiscriminately waged against gay people that was embedded in the social environments that they were born and grew up  in. Overall, on all accounts, Benedict’s was one of the severest form of structural violence in history.  



As, in my case - protocol number 20131723/F, the same is true for Benedict and Burke -  there is the tendency to blame the victim or to acquit the victim - without fully considering the context of the situation surrounding them as victims.  The abusive  childhood situations in which Benedict and Burke grew up in, as children are well documented historical tragic events: (1) the years of Hitler’s Nazi Regime leading to WWII and (2) the post war years - National terrorizing demagoguery and witch-hunt for homosexuals of USA Senator Joseph McCarty.   


STRUCTURAL VIOLENCE
Introduction
by Deborah Du Nann Winter and Dana C. Leighton
Direct violence is horrific, but its brutality usually gets our attention: we notice it, and often respond to it. Structural violence, however, is almost always invisible, embedded in ubiquitous social structures, normalized by stable institutions and regular experience. Structural violence occurs whenever people are disadvantaged by political, legal, economic, or cultural traditions. Because they are longstanding, structural inequities usually seem ordinary—the way things are and always have been. But structural violence produces suffering and death as often as direct violence does, though the damage is slower, more subtle, more common, and more difficult to repair. The chapters in this section teach us about some important but invisible forms of structural violence, and alert us to the powerful cultural mechanisms that create and maintain them over generations…
  One outcome of exclusionary thinking is the belief that victims of violence must in some way deserve their plight. But certainly it is easy to see that young children do not deserve to be victims…

Global Devastation to Humanity
NOT 
Ireland’s Gay Marriage 

The global devastation to humanity - is not Ireland’s decisive victory, voting to allow gay marriage, in fact, it is quite the opposite. Ireland’s families winning a victory for all gay people, May 23, 2015 - is the revitalization of all that is good, and true and loving in humanity.  It is a major victory of the love for humanity - helping to end the perpetuation of structural violence that led to the Vatican’s moratorium on love - lasting for well-over the past 30 years.  This moratorium on love was established and enforced by the adult reenactments of childhood traumatizing memories by the victims, Benedict XVI and Cardinal Burke, of the same structural violence they experience as children of the situations dehumanizing gay human beings.  

“Destruction of Mankind”

For Benedict it was Himmler’s public speeches claiming homosexuals were not really human beings, who if left to have their way - threatened the “Destruction of Mankind,” even stating his wish to kill them.  For Burke, it was the McCarty’s obsessive homosexual witch hunts - encased in his demagoguery.  It was his indifference for the harm and lives he ruined by his endless unsubstantiated character assassinations of innocent people that led to people like, US Senator, Margaret Chase Smith, and Edward R. Murrow exposing “his hysterical disregard for decency and human dignity and the rights guaranteed by the Constitution (Edward R. Murrow 1954).”  

Dangerous - Repressed Homosexuals 
‘A Defeat for Humanity’ 

The structural violence of Himmler and McCarthy caused by their obsessive unsubstantiated attacks against homosexuals was also a socially accepted form of child abuse of children growing up gay. The lifetime harmful effects caused to children by this form of child abuse - attacking a child’s gay sexual orientation is identifiable throughout the lives of Benedict and Burke, as well as, how it is perpetuated - generation to generation.  There are some indications that Himmler and McCarthy were repressed homosexuals that needs further research for verification. 

Destroying - Child’s Gay Sexual Orientation
Kills - Love & Joy???

The child abuse caused by attacking the sexual orientation of homosexuality that depending on the severity -  would likely in varying degrees throughout the lifetime of the victims- cause the blocking of the ability to experience a mature form of love. There is a strong distrust that love is real and it works.  This attitude does not permit true attachments with another or others.  Such potential possibilities of forming meaningful relationships is treated with indifference.  Without meaningful relationships there is a mark reduction for the capacity of joy and a tendency of an exploitative quality.  “They do not get excited about potential love objects, because they 
experience people as duplications of each other with meaningless differences. Cognitive function shows a sterility and monotony of ideas and impoverishment of imagination and creativity Henry Krystal - PDF http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCIQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ibrarian.net%2Fnavon%2Fpaper%2FChapter_8__Psychoanalytic_Approaches_to_Trauma__A.pdf%3Fpaperid%3D16436404&ei=GF21VNXKA9SqyASwnoDYBA&usg=AFQjCNHw0P8nuU0GEYdZs0ItaQKDfe2GLA&bvm=bv.83339334,d.aWw)."  

Further investigation of the above possibilities is warranted and is likely to be quite enlightening to the importance of sexual orientation and its connection to a child’s development of the capacity to love and to be loved, including the overall effects to sociality.  It would help us in determining, whether the effects caused to society are more beneficial from the fierce repression of homosexual sexual orientation or from fully appreciating all the aspects of being gay as a gift from God.  We will be able to decide which is the salt that allows us to live peacefully with each other.  

Salt is good, but if it
loses its saltiness, how 
can you make it salty again?
Have salt among yourselves, and 
be at peace with each other.  Mark 9:50

And the past 30 years regarding Benedict and Burke their obsessive antigay crusade is the place to start this authoritative clinical investigation. 

Vatican’s Absence of Love

It is this complete absence of love that is still being fostered by the majority of the members of the Vatican’s curia and of the hierarchy that is continually causing the global devastation to humanity.  

That is except for a few members of the hierarchy, who have been exceptionally kind and respectful of gay adults as well as gay children, as noted at the Synod 2014.  There may be more members of the hierarchy, who are working at being the salt of the earth by sincerely loving all people as God has commanded.  They have been publicly restoring the human dignity of gay people, including gay children, as human beings created by God the dignity that has been seriously eroded in the past 30 years.  It is a most encouraging start that is likely has always been there, but ignored.

Ireland Strong Catholic Support - Gay Marriage
Love & Joy to Humanity 

It is NOT Ireland’s overwhelming presence of love in support of gay marriage, which in itself is the ultimate expression of love, between two human beings that is causing any harm to humanity.  

Catholic Church needs to empower the laity - June 1, 2015

…The scenes of joy and delight in Dublin Castle on May 23rd felt like a kind of secular Pentecost – the spirit of fear was banished, faces were alive with laughter and love. We need to pray for a similar kind of Pentecost for the church, so that the beauty of its concerns and message may come alight again for its own faithful, but also as a resource for Irish society…

It is the Irish’s example of courageous love, forcefully expressed on May 23, 2015, that untwisted the truth out of Cardinal Burke’s hysterical antigay demagoguery conveyed in his understanding of family and found it to be - an absolute void of love. 

All churches in Ireland in need of ‘reality check’
The family won the same-sex marriage referendum for gay people - May 24, 2015
…It’s not just young people. The people who voted for this referendum included tens of thousands of practicing older Catholics in the cities, towns and countryside of Ireland. People who will continue to practice their faith but who no longer accept that their gay sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, grandchildren, even their gay parents, are “objectively disordered” with a tendency to evil, as their Church teaches.
Rather, by voting Yes last Friday, they embraced their gay minority and trumpeted to the world “you are my son, you are my daughter, you are my brother, you are my sister, you are my grandchild, you are my mother, you are my father, you are my equal inlaw whatever the church may teach.”
It is an irony that those who opposed the referendum out of concern for the family were defeated by the family. The difference being that the No family was a concept, whereas last Friday’s Yes families were flesh and blood, living, breathing, flawed, impossible, loving humanity…

Gay People - “less than human”
Arbitrary Disregarding  - - -Any SCIENCE 
Hitler & Nazi Regime 

It should be obvious that it is Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal Burke - their complete absence of love -obsessively and ruthlessly directed against gay people - for the past 30 years had been setting a global example:- that the Roman Catholic Church approves of the arbitrary disregard and fierce suppression of any science that gets in the way to publicly dehumanize any group of people without cause.  As global leaders of the Roman Catholic Church, they were arbitrarily treating gay people as “less than human” that any science regarding their lives and future well-being  is unimportant - as if, they were not made in the image and likeness of God.  It is this - their global example that has endlessly been followed, exploited - -that is causing the defeat and devastation to humanity. Photo


For example : The USA tobacco companies in the 1990s knew well the science regarding - “…both the addictiveness of nicotine and the health hazards of cigarettes…but kept a fiercely guarded secret.” And still - “…the seven executives of "Big Tobacco" testified during congressional hearings that they believed ‘nicotine is not addictive’”.

A crucial and historic battle in the war between the tobacco industry and smokers began with Jeffrey Wigand, a doctor of biochemistry with a career focus on health issues who became the Vice President of Research & Development at Brown & Williamson in 1989. He was hired to research safer means of delivering nicotine by reducing the harm of other tobacco compounds. At the time, both the addictiveness of nicotine and the health hazards of cigarettes were well known by the company and the industry, but kept a fiercely guarded secret. Wigand soon found his research and recommendations discouraged, ignored and censored, leading to confrontations with the CEO, Thomas Sandefur. Thwarted and frustrated, Wigand turned his attention to improving tobacco additives, some of which were designed for "impact boosting", using chemicals like ammonia to enhance absorption of nicotine in the lungs and affect the brain and central nervous system faster. Wigand believed this process was a deliberate attempt to increase addiction to cigarettes.
Wigand's disagreements with Sandefur reached a breaking point over a flavor enhancer called coumarin, which he believed to be a lung-specific carcinogen that the company continued to use in pipe tobacco. Wigand demanded its removal, but a successful substitute had not been found and Sandefur refused on the grounds that sales would drop. This argument led Sandefur to fire Wigand in 1993 and to force him to sign an extended confidentiality agreement forbidding him to speak of anything related to his work or the company. The penalty for violating confidentiality was loss of his severance pay, potential lawsuit, and loss of medical coverage. At the time, his daughter suffered from a chronic illness, which required continuous medical attention.
Soon after this incident, the seven executives of "Big Tobacco" testified during congressional hearings that they believed "nicotine is not addictive”... Photo

Pope Benedict XVI & Cardinal Burke
Dehumanizing Antigay - Social Environments

Pope Benedict XVI  (b. 1927, Bavaria, Germany ) and Cardinal Burke (b. 1948, Richland Center, Wisconsin, USA) both were born into and grew up, respectively, in dehumanizing antigay social environments. Benedict’s is “considered the single most destructive event in human history (http://www.npr.org/2011/03/29/134956180/criminals-see-their-victims-as-less-than-human).” 

The fanatical nature of Benedict and Burke that is identifiable in their pubic antigay pronouncements alarmingly resemble, the same irrational (unsubstantiated) antigay rhetoric that pervasively penetrated their social environments lasting throughout their early childhood years growing up in Germany and the United States, respectively. 

Himmler & McCarthy
Catholics
Bavaria - Wisconsin
Unsubstantiated Science 

It is interesting to note that these two past prominent public antigay leaders from their early childhood years, the Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler (b.1900, Munich, Bavaria, Germany - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich_Himmler#cite_note-) and the US Senator Joseph McCarthy (b. 1908) from Wisconsin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_McCarthy), were both Catholic and documentation indicating they were repressed homosexuals. 

Racial Purity  &  “Destruction of Mankind”

Inherent in Heinrich Himmler’s antigay crusade was the Nazis illogical dogmatic belief in racial purity and that homosexuals were subhumans who posed an imminent threat of the destruction of the Aryan race, the master race. Himmler, completely lacking any unsubstantiated evidence, - publicly referred that homosexuals would lead to the “Destruction of Mankind.” Benedict XVI used this exact terminology 

Homosexuality is as great a threat as rainforest destruction, says Pope - 23 December 2008
The tropical forests deserve our protection, but man as a creature deserves it no less.'
In a clear reference to homosexuality, he said the failure to respect the union between a man and a woman amounted to the 'auto destruction of mankind'. 


Benedict XVI & Himmler
Bavaria
“Destruction of Mankind”

Benedict XVI spent his first 18 years of life in Germany (1927 -1945) under the rise and fall of Hitler’s and the Nazi Party’s regime - ( -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_life_of_Pope_Benedict_XVI -- & ---  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Benedict_XVI -). The Nazi’s propaganda that saturated the social environment was built on an illogical concept regarding the superiority of the “Aryan race” as the master race. All other races and groups of people were literally understood to be subhuman who were contaminating the racial purity of the Aryan race thus weakening it, threatening its destruction. 

Those considered subhuman were than looked upon as a disease that threaten to destroy the Aryan race and therefore needed to be ruthlessly removed and eliminated. The Nazis perverted the field of racial hygiene in an irrational attempt aimed at reaching “racial purity.” 

School children, beginning, as young as 5 and 6 years of age were constantly drilled on the superiority of the “Aryan race,” racial purity and the threat of contamination of subhumans, such as: Jews, as their main target - then others, Gypsies, homosexuals and handicapped people, ethnic Poles, and Russians. They were labeled as "inferior" in a racial hierarchy that placed the “Aryan race” at the top and Jewish people at the bottom (Racial policy of Nazi Germany).

Heinrich Himmler, the second most powerful Nazi leader raised in a conservative Catholic family (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinrich_Himmler#cite_note-), who was solely responsible for filling the social environment with his obsessive dehumanizing propaganda about homosexuals. The documentation confirms this fact, as well as, his implied underlining fanatical belief in racial purity that homosexuals pose a dangerous threat of destroying the Aryan race, it also indicates the possibility that he was a repressed homosexual (http://www.ushmm.org/m/pdfs/20050726-giles.pdf). “…His speeches and writings dealt more obsessively with homosexuality than did those of any other Nazi leader, and his comments were broadly consistent in their sharp condemnation of homosexuality. On several documented occasions between 1934 and 1943, Himmler spoke or wrote of the acceptability, even the desirability, of killing homosexuals…(Geoffrey J. Giles - http://mtw160-198.ippl.jhu.edu/login?auth=0&type=summary&url=/journals/journal_of_the_history_of_sexuality/v011/11.1giles.pdf - & - http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2015/03/repost-cold-blooded-murderers-revised.html).”


Cardinal Burke & McCarthy
Wisconsin
Hysterical Antigay Demagoguery
Demonizing, Scapegoating, 
Character Assassinations

It is quite surprising how - Cardinal Burke born 1948 in Wisconsin so closely mirrored the same demagoguery tactics employed by US Senator Joseph McCarthy also from Wisconsin - in his witch-hunt against homosexuals 1947-1957 that of: demonizing, dehumanizing, scapegoating, character assassinations, refusing to redeem false claims he made against homosexuals, and in the process ruining people’s careers and lives without any concern for the devastation he caused (http://www.drw.utexas.edu/roberts-miller/sites/www.drw.utexas.edu.roberts-miller/files/demagoguery.pdf). More examples of Burke mirroring McCarthy hysterical demagoguery are found below - regarding his making statements that are completely unfounded.  

  Demagogues, however, refuse to give additional evidence of assertions that are disputed, instead resorting to fallacies (especially red herring and ad personum) or silencing the questioner (as when proslavery forces tried to get abolitionists thrown in jail for publishing criticisms of slavery). McCarthy is an interesting example of this, as he was pretty clearly inventing numbers..."To exaggerate, to affirm, to resort to repetitions, and never to attempt to prove anything reasoning are methods of argument well known to speakers at public meetings"...
  McCarthy would toss out all sorts of apparent evidence. But the "evidence" always turns out to be really problematic...


Benedict XVI & Burke 
Early Childhood Years - Germany & USA
 Severely Repressed Homosexuals

Children growing up gay in social environments that are severely dehumanizing of gay people are not traumatized by only one single event or situation of irrational cruelty against gay people, which causes devastating harmful effects that are lasting throughout the child’s life. These children, however, experience not only one, but multiple forms of antigay traumatizing events and situations(child abuse), from quite possibly from within both the social and home environments. The sustaining repetition of these traumatizing events lasting throughout their early childhood years cause harmful effects that are lasting throughout their lives. 

And in the case of Benedict and Burke, who were placed in major global position of leadership, lasting over 30 years - the global devastation of human life they are responsible for causing is incalculable.  Their behavioral reenactments - switching from being the child victims to being the adult aggressors- is most unfortunately vividly seen in both Benedict XVI’s and Cardinal Burke’s obsessive antigay crusade for the past 30 years (http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2015/03/repost-cold-blooded-murderers-revised.html).  “These behavioral reenactments are rarely consciously understood to be related to earlier life experiences (The Compulsion to Repeat the Trauma).” 

FOR YOUR OWN GOOD
Hidden cruelty in child-rearing and the roots of violence (1980)
By Alice Miller
...In the earliest stage of life, it is possible for a child to forget about the extreme acts of cruelty he or she has endured and to idealize their perpetrator. But the nature of the subsequent enactment reveals that the whole history of early persecution was stored up somewhere; the drama now unfolds in front of the spectators with an amazing resemblance to the original situation but under another guise: in the reenactment, the child who was once persecuted now becomes the persecutor...

For a very young child to be a victim of this form of relentless extended inhuman treatment is unimaginable. The child’s sense of reality would be distorted beyond belief. The spell, as it were, of this form of distortion would only be broken when someone challenges the reality of this antigay cruelty.  As it was done, quite unexpectedly at the Synod 2014 - with the welcoming of gay children. Though, the spell has been broken, especially, with the recognition that gay children do in fact exist, it will more than likely be perceived, as life threatening, by the victims. It would foster an overwhelming disorienting effect and would be experienced - like being on a ship without a rudder or an overall sense of confusion.

Benedict XVI grew up in the a social environment saturated by the severe dehumanizing antigay propaganda of the homophobic Nazi leader, Heinrich Himmler.  Himmler was strongly influenced by the unsubstantiated ideas that Herwig Hartner wrote about homosexuality, such as, if homosexuality was left uncheck would lead to the “destruction of mankind” (http://www.ushmm.org/m/pdfs/20050726-giles.pdf).

Heinrich Himmler (1900-1945) was the Reich Leader (Reichsführer) of the dreaded SS of the Nazi party from 1929 until 1945. Himmler presided over a vast ideological and bureaucratic empire that defined him for many—both inside and outside the Third Reich—as the second most powerful man in Germany during World War II. Given overall responsibility for the security of the Nazi empire, Himmler was the key and senior Nazi official responsible for conceiving and overseeing implementation of the so-called Final Solution, the Nazi plan to murder the Jews of Europe...

Benedict XVI, in December 2008, fully mirrored Himmler’s example, from the 1930s in Germany, of blindly, without question, accepting and using the same unsubstantiated antigay dehumanizing terminology and reasoning for attacking gay people. He did this by indirectly implying that gay people would inevitably lead to the “destruction of mankind” if the union of a man and a woman was not upheld. Benedict XVI  In this public statement, it was subtilely implied that gay people were “less than human,” therefore, were legitimately “excluded from the system of moral rights and obligations that bind humankind together. It's wrong to kill a person, but permissible to exterminate a rat. To the Nazis, all the Jews, Gypsies and others were rats: dangerous, disease-carrying rats (http://www.npr.org/2011/03/29/134956180/criminals-see-their-victims-as-less-than-human).” 

Since, gay people are “less than human” it is completely unnecessary to be anymore concern about their lives as if they were real human beings, including any crucial science pertaining to their well-being and safety, than we would be stepping on a bug. Gay people are not even considered among the least in the world, they are simply not considered at all, except to rid the world of them. This is, in fact, what has been the treatment of homosexuals for the past 30 years by hierarchy beginning with those in the Vatican.

Whether or not Benedict XVI was consciously aware that he was in fact, reenacting Himmler’s dehumanizing example, from his early childhood memories, that he was promoting the same fanatical and irrational ideology of the Nazi regime that was horrifically inhuman that led to the atrocities of WWII - that ended with the deaths of over 70 million people. It was based on the unsubstantiated concept - regarding the superiority of “Aryan Race” as the master race and the obsessive need to maintain its “racial purity” from the contamination of the rest of humanity that they considered to be subhuman

Racial policy of Nazi Germany
The racial policy of Nazi Germany was a set of policies and laws implemented by Nazi Germany, asserting the superiority of the "Aryan race", and based on a specific racist doctrine which claimed scientific legitimacy. It was combined with a eugenics programme that aimed for racial hygiene by using compulsory sterilizations and extermination of the Untermenschen (or "sub-humans"), and which eventually culminated in the Holocaust. These policies targeted peoples, in particular Jews, as well as Gypsies, homosexuals and handicapped people, ethnic Poles, Russians who were labeled as "inferior" in a racial hierarchy that placed the Herrenvolk (or "master race") of the Volksgemeinschaft (or "national community") at the top, and ranked Russians, Romani, Serbs, Poles, persons of color and Jews at the bottom…

After Hitler rise to power in 1933 -he immediately had school children, starting as young 5 and 6 years of age - constantly drilled on the idea of racial purity.  Germany school children who did not meet the ideal of the Arian race - were by some sources - simply removed from school never to be seen again. “…Schools played an important role in spreading Nazi ideas to German youth. While censors removed some books from the classroom, German educators introduced new textbooks that taught students love for Hitler, obedience to state authority, militarism, racism, and antisemitism… (http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007820)

Over the past 30 years, from the Vatican through the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith - this Nazi dehumanizing ideology morphed into the dominating principle that is the antithesis of the Word of God - by Benedict XVI’s  continual reenactment of his early childhood memories though disguised as God’s will. And from the position he held in the Vatican - how has his reenactments contributed to the global morality? The every situation he thought that was combating the  global secularization, he was at the same time fostering. 

He did this by his reenactments of dehumanizing homosexuals, (1) he obsessively silenced and removed all the theologians, sisters and priests, including members of the hierarchy e.g. Hunthausen who treated gay people as if they were real human beings. His ruthless vigilance in this regard suppressing the emerging science and silencing any open dialogue on the topic of homosexuality was an irrational act (2) silencing truth that was endlessly repeated. In so committing these acts of immorality against truth - he (3) endlessly was setting a global example for world civil and corporate leaders to exploit, as the precedent for using dehumanizing tactics to place profits over human beings. It also (4) established an overall atmosphere of intimidation and fear that penetrated every aspects of the Church. It (5) paralyzed the theological progress out of fear but it removed the foundation of truth that theology is built on. He (6) systematically removed all the built in safeguards of oversight in the Church. He (7) significantly lower the overall  intellectual level of the Church. 

His blatant global hypocrisy of stifling all truth on homosexuality - would be the reason for the (8) major decline in all religious vocations, in the past 30 years. Because by removing the importance to truth - he removed the major attraction to religious life that people are naturally drawn to.  As human beings - we find happiness by being part of something great than ourselves that demands using everything that is in us that involves our whole being. And a lie is not going to do it - especially no matter unanimously the lie is supported by all male celibates in the hierarchy of repressed homosexuals. In fact, such an obvious collective denial is a great deterrent. 

So, the major situation of secularization of the world that he wanted to address he was in fact - promoting big time.  It is the same with the hierarchy’s statement made against pornography - they are promoting an unnatural sexual repression, which is the root cause of pornography. The question is not how to stop people viewing of pornography - but instead - it should be what causes people to want view pornography. 


The lifelong lasting harmful effects of early childhood traumatic situations and events have been addressed in some detail found in the two links provided immediately below.

Repost 3/04/15 -- “Cold-blooded Murderers”- Revised 1/31/15 - Update 3/14/15:


The child growing up gay from birth is completely unaware of the adult meaning of being gay or straight. A child only wants to be loved and to love and any disruption in this childhood developmental process - can be traumatic to the child and the harmful effects can be lasting throughout the child’s lifetime. 

It is possible that such a disruption that happens so early in life - the memory of the situation can be completely repressed, but not the overwhelming feeling that is attached to it. It remains alive and active - disrupting the life of a child - that is until this emotion is able to be identified and is reconnected to the event that caused it. If the event or situation cannot be retrieved from memory than, if possible from the child’s history growing, including the historical aspects of the social environment that surrounded the child -during this time - the event or situation might be reconstructed ( Henry Krystal - PDF http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCIQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ibrarian.net%2Fnavon%2Fpaper%2FChapter_8__Psychoanalytic_Approaches_to_Trauma__A.pdf%3Fpaperid%3D16436404&ei=GF21VNXKA9SqyASwnoDYBA&usg=AFQjCNHw0P8nuU0GEYdZs0ItaQKDfe2GLA&bvm=bv.83339334,d.aWw).

Absolutely Void - Substantiating Evidence

Peoples overall negative reaction to homosexuality are always expressed without absolutely any substantiating evidence to support their fierce disapproval. Their fierce expressed disdain for gay adult pornography is always without any substantiating facts to explain their intense negative reaction.

This would indicate the their intense negativity against gay people more than likely started very early in life and that it was traumatic to some degree. This intense negativity is especially for true for the closeted homosexuals (repressed homosexuals), including bisexuals, who are closeted about their homosexual feelings.  This intense negative reaction against homosexuals - always remains at the same degree of intensity, likely because consciously or unconsciously they always dealing homosexual urges. This is because - a person’s sexual orientation operates continuously - like the person’s breathing or his/her heart beating. We do not have to keep remembering we need to breath, it happens naturally and automatically for us - it is out of our control. ( Henry Krystal - PDF http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCIQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ibrarian.net%2Fnavon%2Fpaper%2FChapter_8__Psychoanalytic_Approaches_to_Trauma__A.pdf%3Fpaperid%3D16436404&ei=GF21VNXKA9SqyASwnoDYBA&usg=AFQjCNHw0P8nuU0GEYdZs0ItaQKDfe2GLA&bvm=bv.83339334,d.aWw). 

Sexual Orientation 
Breathing & Heart Beating 

This why no matter how hard a person tries to prevent his/her gay sexual orientation from operating  - it cannot be done. And what is more  - it is as vital - as breathing and the heart beating. So it is easier to imagine how overwhelming it is for a person - who since childhood has been, depending in the way and the degree of intensity - conditioned by fear and trauma to keep trying to completely repress the normal functioning of his or his gay sexual orientation. Though, the child is also overwhelmed by not having any clear conception or understanding what he or she is doing that is causing such fierce unexpected negative reactions and threats of abandonment. Because, at the time of this surprised attack - the child is aware the he/she is not misbehaving in a way that would warrant such a hostile life and death reprimand by the parents he/she loves and is completely dependent on.

Signs of Immaturity

For a child growing up gay - this type of episode is likely to be repeated endlessly, varying in degree of intensity, all in relationship to an aspect that is related to him/her that is not understood and has no control over. It will more than likely have severe developmental effects. For, one, it will negatively impact, even stalling the normal psychological sexual development of the child - expressing signs of immaturity throughout adulthood. The severity of these damaging lifetime harmful effects may be easier to understand in our own adult lives and are able to be seen in the adult lives of others.

This may be helpful, to some degree - to understand why people, who express such fierce disdain for gay adult pornography are unable to support their intense negative reaction (i.e. emotional outbursts) with any substantiating evidence. It is not only that they are unable provide any substantiating evidence, they most refuse to even discuss their feelings. 

Science - Homosexuality 
Restoring Renewed Energy 

However, over the past 60 years, with the emerging science on homosexual sexual orientation - it has brought new understanding and clarity, ending for many - some times paralyzing confusion and guilt, thus restoring an enormous amount of psychic energy. This has been expressed by many - the feeling having renewed energy to begin living. 

But the persistence of the majority of the Roman Catholic hierarchy, as global world leaders - to continue to discredit all the authoritative science on homosexual sexual orientation and gender theory for the past 60 years - perpetuates the obsessive waste of psychic energy. This fierce obsessive nature was set in motion back in early childhood and has continued throughout their adulthood lives. 

To make people feel guilty about something they have no control over to prevent. is madness. It becomes very apparent that they are projecting their own homosexual urges on to others that they are earnestly attempting to keep repressed.

An enormous amount of lifetimes are wasted on feeling guilty over something that is not their fault, nor is evil. This leaves people to be so absorbed in something that is not a sin - while never feeling guilty about any real sins committed against other people. It is has also been used as a political wedge to keep people in the state of fear and to help usher certain people not political office. 

Statement on Pornography 

This obsessive antigay situation is generated and sets an example that stems directly from the Roman Catholic hierarchy, though not by all. The one single priority of the hierarchy - over all others was their obsessive need to write a statement against gay pornography and to punish those who view it. It would never occur to them that their global antigay crusade and their demeaning treatment of women, both have been emphatically expressed by Cardinal Burke - are the two key factors generating the global market for pornography, especially gay pornography.

Now, just who has been viewing gay pornography?

The Holy Father went on to say that, in the Gospel, there are two telltale signs of those, who, “know what is to be believed, but do not have faith.” The first sign is a tendency to “casuistry”, represented by those who asked Jesus if it was lawful to pay taxes, or which of the seven brothers of the husband would have to marry the widowed woman. The second sign is a commitment to “ideology”:
Christians who think of faith as a system of ideas, ideologically: 
there were such as these even in Jesus’ own day. The Apostle John says of them, that they were the antichrist, the ideologues of faith, of whatsoever [ideological] stamp they might have been. At that time there were the Gnostics, but there will [always] be many – and thus, those who fall into casuistry or those who fall into ideology are Christians who know the doctrine, but without faith, like demons. The difference is that the demons tremble, these Christians, no: they live peacefully...

Pope Francis at Mass: Be vigilant of dictatorship of thought - April 10, 2014
...It is a closed way of thinking that is not open to dialogue, to the possibility that there is something else, the possibility that God speaks to us, tells us about His journey, as he did to the prophets. These people did not listen to the prophets and did not listen to Jesus. It is something greater than a mere stubbornness. No, it is more: it is the idolatry of their own way of thinking. 'I think this, it has to be this way, and nothing more'. These people had a narrow line of thought and wanted to impose this way of thinking on the people of God, Jesus rebukes them for this: ' You burden the people with many commandments and you do not touch them with your finger...
There is no possibility of dialogue, there is no possibility to open up to new things which God brings with the prophets. They killed the prophets, these people; they close the door to the promise of God. When this phenomenon of narrow thinking enters human history, how many misfortunes. We all saw in the last century, the dictatorships of narrow thought , which ended up killing a lot of people, but when they believed they were the overlords, no other form of though was allowed. This is the way they think...
...Even today there is a dictatorship of a narrow line of thought and this dictatorship is the same as these people: it takes up stones to stone the freedom of the people, the freedom of the people, their freedom of conscience, the relationship of the people with God. Today Jesus is Crucified once again...

Though the hierarchy’s fierce persistence to remain stuck in their addictive behavior to wipe out all gay people - has also given new insight into their problem, a problem shared by many in the world. It appears to be a global reenactment of childhood trauma regarding growing up gay and bisexual that needs to be resolved in order to move on in life. 

Maintaining - Well-Formed Conscience

We do not do this by enabling this addictive behavior so clearly demonstrated by Cardinal Burke, because it has absolutely nothing to do with viewing pornography - gay or straight. It has everything to with rediscovering love - the fullness of love. And if continually done properly, like any 12 step drug recovery group - the need for viewing pornography will subsided, as well as, the exploitation the human beings used in the pornography industry.

We begin this process by first, taking an honest look at ourselves, identifying our own sexual orientation and sexual behavior. This is all a part of education, that must first begin with us becoming educated on all the science of sexual orientation and then and only then - teaching others.

This is the life-long process of maintaining an well-formed conscience that is the responsibility of every human being - without exception. We are never to follow anyone blindly and unconditional obedience belongs to God alone. 

This manner of educating others is our number one priority given to us by Christ as his disciples - to go and teach all nations….

We cannot teach what we do not know ourselves and we must remember how easy it is to fall into blindness and we need to a plan to check ourselves to prevent this from happening.

Early Childhood Abuse - Growing Up Gay 
Violence Perpetuated in Adulthood 
 by
Repressed Homosexuals 

In brief, there appears to be three blatant indications - a culture of repressed homosexuals exists and that they were harmed in early childhood by the influence of antigay social and religious norms. First, is their inability to connect to one another or anyone - indicating a severe lack of empathic caring in early childhood.  Second, is their unison of switching from being the victims of the childhood abuse that is caused by the lifetime harm of antigay social and religious norms to becoming the aggressors of attacking gay people. Third, the fact their attacks against gay people grew to be unquestioningly obsessive to the exclusion of any logical or rational oversight regarding the science and the harm they were causing - to gay people and especially gay children - is an indication that large numbers of repressed homosexuals exists in the curia and the hierarchy. Because no one voiced an objection to this insanity.

However, most encouraging was the fact that - this is not true of all members of the hierarchy, otherwise the Synod 2014 would never have - consider the idea of welcoming gays and most especially the need of - supporting gay children.

 Goals & Ideas 
Over 
Human Beings

Though, as an organization - they embodied many of the characteristics of a mercenary culture - rating low on a sociability scale, high on solidarity and where business goals are highly valued over the value of any individual human being.

...Indeed, almost all communication in a mercenary organization is focused on business matters. The reason: individual interests coincide with corporate objectives, and those objectives are often linked to a crystal clear perception of the "enemy" and the steps required to beat it. As a result, mercenary organizations are characterized by the ability to respond quickly and cohesively to a perceived opportunity or threat in the marketplace. Priorities are decided swiftly - generally by senior management - and enforced throughout the organization with little debate...

Sexual Orientation & Human Empathy 
Attachment vs. Sociopath


Science has for over the past 3 decades unraveled some basic facts about (1) homosexuality, sexual orientation that it is not something people chose of their own free will. More facts indicates that a (2) person’s sexual orientation is set very early in life - either just before birth or very soon afterwards. And once it is set - it is resistance to change. And furthermore sexual orientation from the very beginning in a person’s life is then and always about (3) loving and attaching to people - to love and wanting to be loved. It is how a person learns to feel as one with another from very early in childhood in a non-sexual way. A person sexual orientation from early childhood begins the formation of the ability to empathize with others. And if its development is disrupted, depending the kind and degree of disruption, in early childhood it can have lasting effects throughout a child’s lifetime.  A disruption in a child’s ability learning how to love - is traumatic for a child. It is the lack of empathic caring that can destroy a child’s ability to form secure attachments to other human beings, and in forming lifelong lasting relationships.

(4) Growing up gay in an antigay social environment, depending upon the severity, can significantly harm a child’s ability to empathize with other human beings. The question remains - if growing up gay in a severe antigay social environments contributes to destroying child’s ability to empathize - the making of sociopaths? It is interesting that so often people, priests, ministers, politicians and others who speak so harshly against gay people - are found out later to be publicly involved in gay sexual relationships. 

The deliberate repression of anyone’s sexual orientation (heterosexual or homosexual), depending on the severity will always surface in more inappropriate behaviors lasting throughout a lifetime. It is what, in part, the causes of many sexual fetishes and sexual addictions.

Distorted Thinking 

The noted endless infighting of the curia and hostile treatment of each other - does not in anyway represent secure attachments to other human beings. It clearly appears to be an inability tune into - to understand or imagine what another person may be feeling. This inability would also extend their ability to form a spiritual relationship with God and would more than likely lead to a distorted understanding of God’s love.  And the only time that they express any solidarity is when they turn their hatred on a common enemy - gay people, or rather they revert to being the adult aggressor and mistreat others the way they were mistreated/abused as a children growing up gay.


Leading A Double Life 

It is easy to understand that they would appear to be living a double life. However, being well over the age of 60, they may not even be aware they are living a double life.  Though in one way - they be acting in a way they have grown to believe that is expected of them and in another way they may or may not be conscious they are acting any differently. It would likely be a dissociated form of acting out their true sexual orientation desires.  Though through some distorted way of thinking they do not consciously acknowledge that they are acting out their true sexual orientation. This is how it is possible for some of those who are speaking out publicly - so harshly against gay people - and then see no inconsistency in their being involved in secret same-sex liaisons of any number of varying sorts and degrees of intensity.  J. Edgar Hoover initiated the witch hunts for homosexuals in the government, all the while he was involved in a same sex relationship. US Senator Joseph McCarthy from Wisconsin 1947-1957 was notorious for his ruthless and deceitful in his witch-hunt for Communists, and especially more harmful for homosexuals in the US government, he also had accusations made against him of alleged homosexual behavior.

1997-2015 Protecting Gay Children 
vs.
Burke’s Hysterical Antigay Demagoguery: 
a
LOBOTOMY on Truth & the GENOCIDE of Gay Children 

KIDS ARE BEING HURT!!!

__________________________________________

______


Since, the release of the Synod 2014 - midterm report - and Cardinal Burke’s irrational and hysterical disregard for the lives of human beings, especially children he made evident by his emotionally charged public statements - no longer protected by the bureaucratic anonymity of the curia. It appears he revealed  way more than he may intended - about himself and how extensively he was involved in the campaign against homosexuality.  

Demagoguery

It is quite surprising how - Cardinal Burke born 1948 in Wisconsin so closely mirrored the same demagoguery tactics employed by US Senator Joseph McCarthy also from Wisconsin - in his witch-hunt against homosexuals 1947-1957 that of: demonizing, dehumanizing, scapegoating, character assassinations, refusing to redeem false claims he made against homosexuals, and in the process ruining people’s careers and lives without any concern for the devastation he caused.

Collective Dissociation

Cardinal Burke’s pubic statements, also gave new insight into the culture of curia and hierarchy. A culture of collective dissociation from the reality of human sexuality - in particular homosexual sexual orientation. It is the denial of one’s sexual orientation, a futile attempt of suppression, which is an impossibility. It is like breathing that operates continuously without our conscious thought or intention - it is automatic. It is possible to suppress, to dissociate one’s sexual orientation from consciousness, but it remains alive and active in an unconscious state of mind. It then is free to operate in ways that the individual is not fully aware, but is obvious to others that is unless the others are also in the same state of dissociation from the same sexual orientation. 

Alice in Wonderland 

Among the members of the curia and hierarchy there is a collective dissociation from their sexual orientation, which is homosexual, noted by their antigay obsession, their disregard to be educated on the topic, and their fierce emotional rejection about welcoming gay people and offering no rational explanation to support their position.  And like the politicians and ministers who publicly are strongly antigay, only to be found   out later in same-sex encounters in public restrooms and or hiring gay prostitutes, etc. The Vatican has had its  share of gay scandals, as well. This collective dissociation on the part of the members of the curia and hierarchy - it is this that gives the air - the atmosphere that is surreal, bizarre - where the irrational is collectively and firmly accepted as rational, i.e. Alice in Wonderland, a psychiatric ward. Photo

Vatican Antigay Demagoguery
Galileo Galilei

I had first identified this collective behavior, as groupthink, which I wrote about in an article dated March 4, 2008 (http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2013/05/children-growing-up-gay-vaticans.html) - shortly after my first and only meeting with, one of the unnamed bishops of my diocese, Walter Hurley, on February 15, 2008. Meeting on February 15, was an interesting coincidence, because it was on - the day that Galileo Galilei was born, in 1564. It was alarmingly clear then that Hurley was absent of any personal thought or moral conviction regarding homosexuality. He did not meet me in his office, but met me in the entryway flanked by two other priests, who I knew. He impressed me - as being a coward and a puppet of some greater form of this Vatican antigay demagoguery. This was because Hurley’s conversation matched the same irrational  and unconscionable ruthlessness and cruelty that I first experienced behind closed doors in June 1997 - ordering me to be sent away to be re-educated on subject of sexual orientation. The only difference - there was an added element of smugness and arrogance - even a sense of pleasure of seeming being able to harm and to dominate over another human being. Photo

Hunthausen  1980s
Intimidation Tactic to Bishops

At the time, I had only personally experienced lethal effects of this form of the Vatican's antigay demagoguery that was destroying my life, my reputation, my credibility, my personal and professional relationships and the means to support myself - to leave me penniless and homeless. Although, it strongly appears they want people to believe that the destruction of my life happened because of my sexual orientation and would serve as a deterrent, as a way to intimidate other priests who would dare to stand up for truth - no matter - even if it is directly for the purpose of protecting children. In this regard, the harsh ruthlessness and demeaning way I have been mistreated - is similar to the way Archbishop Hunthausen was treated by the curia - also to intimidate other bishops. 

No Substantiated Reasoning 
Offered 

And in my case, the previous 5 years prior to my attending - the National Symposium of the New Ways Ministry held in March 7,8,9, 1997, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I had already done extensive research and study, on the subject of sexual orientation: 
(1) at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
(2) attending the American Psychological Association National Conventions, particularly attending the lectures, discussions groups and workshops related to sexual orientation and gender studies and including 
(3) attending a number of regular meetings and events of LGBT Organizations, such as: 
(a) Pflag - “Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, including Transgender - LGBTQ,” 
(b) the Catholic LGBT group DignityUSA - in Detroit, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, 
(c) the University of Michigan - LGBTQ Center, workshops, lectures and resources, 
(d) Affirmations, Ferndale, MI, a local - LGBTQ Community Center, courses, and activities,
(e) Gay Pride Parades, in the cities of San Francisco, CA and in Los Angeles, CA, 
Photo - same day I had Mass at - Saint Mary's Cathedral, San Francisco
(4) years of personal psychotherapy sessions - that was directly related to the lifetime harmful effects caused by being subjected to the antigay social and religious norms - in particular the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings and
(5) spiritual direction and retreats.

Therefore, long before I attended the National Symposium of the New Ways Ministry  in March 7,8,9, 1997, I was reasonably 
competent in the scope of understanding sexual orientation, from four different perspectives, as stated above. However, what I was not aware of was information Dr. Richard Isay imparted in his keynote address at the Symposium. Dr. Isay explained the early childhood psychological development growing up gay. He noted that children as young as 4 and 5 years of age know that they are “different” not that they are gay.  It is only as adults do they identify this being “different” as being gay. It is only as adults do they identify this being “different” as being gay. Photo

I was amazed that without warning how quickly his information resonated through the history of my life, as far back to when I was 3 or 4 years of age. As he began to explained in detail how the harmful influence of antigay social and religious norms are severely disruptive the a child’s early childhood psychological development growing up gay - causing lasting harmful effects throughout the child’s lifetime - especially disrupting their ability to form long and lasting relationships.

I have in the past referred to what happened to me, as I listened to his descriptions of how a gay child is harmed - that it was like  - adominoes effect with one episodic visual emotional traumatizing memory, like a picture, one after another in my life - that were - long buried and forgotten in the past - were instantly rising up to my conscious awareness. Each memory was startling and unpleasant, at first, however, as he continued on explaining the why and how - a child is harmed/abused by these antigay social and religious norms - was a recognition and acknowledgment that the harm inflicted on me - was real - it brought a deep sense of a relief. A relief from all the strain and stress of keeping these unpleasant emotions buried. It freed up an enormous amount of emotional energy that was experienced like a rebirth and a renewed drive ready to begin living and take on the world. Photo


April 2009 - SEXUAL ORIENTATION is less about sex and more about LOVE, being one with another human being. Attachment Theory - - LOVE & RELIGION --- Fr. Marty Kurylowicz 
Nothing in life is more precious than the intimate relationships we have with love ones. Healthy love relationships delight us give us confidence to take on challenges and support us in difficult times...

Dr. Isay’s explanations both helped me to, once again face and re-experience - the harm caused by being subjected to the antigay social and religious norms throughout my life - beginning in my early childhood. In this process, I was unknowingly - reconnecting from childhood - extremely unpleasant and overwhelming emotions that I had longed buried and reconnecting them to the numerous situations in my life that had caused them. 

And like Dr. Henry Krystal describes - when such overwhelming emotions are separated from the situations that caused them and then are buried - though they are forgotten - they still remain active in our unconscious. They are not only active, but they continue to be destructive to our lives, in ways that we are unaware is happening. It is only through the process of remembering and reconnecting these painful and overwhelming emotions to the situations the caused them that we deactivate their destructive force in our lives. Dr. Henry Krystal:

...Love is the representation of our life powers. The painful emotions can be understood as love hindered, rejected, denied. Emotions recognized, received, and acknowledged, produce the experience of wholeness and competence. What we cannot accept lovingly and peaceably we must try to reject and alienate and we must denote it as ‘nonself.’” (1971a: p. xvii) Our memories, wishes, representations of ourselves and of our objects must be consciously accepted, tolerated, accommodated to, and, hopefully, utilized to one’s advantage. Otherwise they must be handled by repression, isolation, projection, and other (fantasy) defenses, which are experienced as externally, imposed “symptoms.” Contrary to subjective experiences of affect that seem to be explainable by the residues of the antiquated psychoanalytic theories, we cannot “express” them in the sense of ridding ourselves of our affect -- emotional self continence is a self evident truth. However, only consciously acknowledged, and experienced self continence results in a feeling of well being. Illusionally estranged mental elements seem to continue to radiate the painful affects...

Henry Krystal, M.D., author of Integration & Self-Healing, Affect, Trauma, Alexithymia, 1988, is a Holocaust survivor born, 1923, four years before Benedict XVI was born 1927. Dr. Krystal is an internationally renowned psychiatrist. He is noted for his extensive work with Holocaust survivors and traumatized people. For well over fifty years Dr. Krystal has been studying and writing about the consequences of psychological trauma, often disguised by drug addiction and/or psychosomatic problems. His work included detailing the development of emotions from infancy through adolescence. 


In March 1997, after this experience of reliving and reconnecting these painful memories to the buried unpleasant emotions - I also experienced a burst of new energy, because I no longer was repressing long forgotten painful memories.  And on the last day of the National Symposium of the New Ways Ministry, the news media was invited in for the last session. We were all seated together, a news media reporter seated next to me had asked me questions about the symposiums, and at the end - the reporter asked me for permission to use my name in the news report this reporter was writing up. 

This reporter asked for my permission - just as the next speaker at the symposium began speaking, and I was not able to respond to this reporters request. I had about 40 minutes to consider the consequences of giving my permission, which I did not want to do. Actually, I was frantically trying to think away to gracious decline this reporters request. I was finally, feeling better and renewed than I ever did in my life, I was 47 years old, at the time. I just wanted to enjoy feeling good and happy about living. I felt absolutely no urgency, in the least, to come out publicly. 

The crucial reason that was the deciding factor, which I simply could not evade, in good conscience and is why I gave my permission to this reporter to use my name - was related to the research of Dr. Selma Fraiberg. 

In brief, it is a grave significance that I had a well above average competency on the subject of sexual orientation, as I have described in some detail above, before I even attended this symposium. It was for this reason that I was able to integrate so thoroughly nearly every detail of Dr. Richard Isay’s keynote address. I was able to in a most extraordinary way remember practically every painful memory and emotions - of not only my early childhood, but the lasting effects throughout my entire life. 

Realizing the pain and suffering that I went through because the lifetime of the antigay social and religious norms - and for me particularly the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings, I could immediately empathize with gay children growing up and as a priest, as human being I therefore could not in good conscience turn my back on those children - regardless whatever  would happened to me. I gave my permission when the speaker finished to the news reporter to use my name. 

Dr. Selma Fraiberg, in her research - she explains in detail what happened to me regarding my reaction to Dr. Isay’s address and why I willingly (though with great fear) gave the reporter permission to use my name. In her research, she explains that when adults are cognizant - remember their own painful childhood memories they are able to empathize with their children and are careful not to repeat the same harm/violence they experienced as children.


Ghosts in the Nursery: 
A Psychoanlytic Approach to the Problems of Impaired Infant-Mother Relationships  
By Selma Fraiberg; Edna Adelson; Vivian Shapiro - 1974
...The parent, it seems, is condemned to repeat the tragedy of his childhood with his own baby in terrible and exacting detail...
...[The baby]...begins to cry. It is a hoarse, eerie cry in a baby...On tape we see the baby in her mother's arms screaming hopelessly; she does not turn to her mother for comfort. The mother looks distant, self-absorbed. She makes an absent gesture to comfort the baby, then gives up. She looks away. The screaming continues for five dreadful minutes on tape...
...As we watched this tape later in a staff session, we said to each other incredulously, "It's as if this mother doesn't hear her baby's cries!" This led us to the key diagnostic question: "Why doesn’t this mother hear her baby’s cries?”
...The answer to the clinical question is already suggested in the mother's story. This is a mother whose own cries have not been heard. There were, we thought, two crying children in the living room. The mother's distant voice, her remoteness and remove we saw as defenses against grief and intolerable pain, Her terrible story had been first given factually, without visible suffering, without tears. All that was visible was the sad, empty, hopeless look upon her face. She had closed the door on the weeping child within herself as surely as she had closed the door upon her crying baby.
'This led us to our first clinical hypothesis: "When this mother's own cries are heard, she will hear her child’s cries.”...

Reflections on the Work of 
Professor Selma Fraiberg 
A Pioneer in the Field of Social Work and 
Infant Mental Health
Vivian Shapiro - 2007
...In summary, Selma formulated and investigated hypotheses designed to explain the factors that caused some parents to repeat their own traumatic history with their child, and to raise questions about why some parents, who also had been traumatized did not repeat their history of early trauma. It was more likely, she suggested, that parents who remembered the painful feelings of their childhood, could empathize with their infants, and choose to create a different more positive path of relationships with them. But,those parents who had repressed their feelings of pain and loss had shut off their capacity to feel. They could not empathize with their child. Indeed they had responded to their pain with primitive defense mechanisms of repression and identification with the aggressor and had internalized their parents pathological attachment patterns. They had shut down their feelings of the need for love, but the birth of their dependent infant had reawakened some subliminal feelings within them. However they continued to repress their unacknowledged need for parental empathy and love, and could not respond to their own child’s needs. It was as though the ghosts from the past had risen, and unconsciously these parents built an emotional wall between themselves and their infants...

This same reporter at end the of the symposium asked me again for my permission and added that it would be understandable if I wanted to decline giving my permission. I said to the reporter - use my name - it was okay and I fully understood the consequences that may result.

However, never did I even dream that the most vicious and cruelest retaliation would be forthcoming from the Vatican that is supposed to be the ultimate place of Christ’s love, justice and truth, which has proven to be the opposite. 


Truly I tell you, 
unless you change and 
become like little children, 
you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 
Therefore, 
whoever takes the lowly position of this child 
is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 
And 
whoever welcomes one such child 
in my name welcomes me. 
Matthew 18: 3-5

I came out - to draw public attention - to protect children from a lifetime of harm from the influence of the social and religious antigay norms - that areunsubstantiated. And for the past 18 years, no one in the curia or hierarchy has attempted to offer any substantiated reasoning to help me understand their opposing position. 

Those hiding in the Vatican have only tried “behind closed doors” to silence me by using severe intimidation tactics to coerce me into leaving the priesthood on my own, because they had no grounds to remove me from the priesthood then and there in March 1997, nor throughout the past 18 years.

Psychological Projection
Paranoia
Repressed Homosexual Feelings

Overall, the Vatican’s antigay mistreatment that I have been subjected to, including these canonical proceedings labeled as the protocol number 20131723/F - appear to be more along the order of the psychological defense mechanism known as - projection.  Psychological projection happens, when someone wants to rid him or herself of unwanted feelings, thoughts and desires - by projecting them onto another person. 

Projection
          When an internal impulse provokes too much anxiety, the ego may reduce that anxiety by attributing the unwanted impulse to an external object, usually another person.  This is the defense mechanism of projection, which can be defined as seeing in others unacceptable feelings or tendencies that actually reside in one’s own unconscious (Freud, 1915/1957b)...

...For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude...



However, from the extensive documentation over the past 30 years, especially within the last decade in the USA - it appears to be a severe variation of projection that of paranoia that is “...characterized by powerful delusions of jealousy and persecution.” This is quite obvious from the unbelievable twisted idea that after the Vatican’s relentless and mercilessly antigay campaign waged against gay people, which they truly have the upper hand in attacking gay people, however, in some perverted way they claim to be the ones being persecuted. What? How?  

Paranoia
&
Repressed Homosexual Feelings

...According to Freud (1922/1955), a crucial distinction between projection and paranoia is that paranoia is always characterized by repressed homosexual feelings toward the persecutor. Freud believed that the persecutor is inevitably a former friend of the same sex...When homosexual impulses become too powerful, persecuted paranoiacs defend themselves by reversing these feelings and then projecting them onto their original object. For men, the transformation proceeds as follows. Instead of saying, “I love him,” the paranoid person says, “I hate him.” Because this also produces too much anxiety, he says, “He hates me.” At this point, the person has disclaimed all responsibility and can say, “I like him fine, but he’s got it in for me.” The central mechanism in all paranoia is projection with accompanying delusions of jealousy and persecution…

For example, the Vatican - claims that their religious freedom of expression, as a religious institution, is being violated by the United States Senators passing the bill to include sexual orientation as part of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) on November 7, 2013, despite the US Catholic Bishops strong opposition against it (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/11/05/everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-employment-non-discrimination-act-enda/ ). 


Bishops state 'great concern' over executive order on LGBT discrimination - June 20, 2014
WASHINGTON - Archbishop-chairmen of several U.S. bishops' committees issued a statement Friday citing "great concern" over news that President Barack Obama is planning to issue an executive order banning discrimination against LGBT persons by federal contractors.
Key to their concerns, say the bishops, is how the new order will define the terms "sexual orientation" and "gender identity."
"Because we do not know how the executive order will define these critically important terms, or if it will provide sufficient (or any)religious freedom protection, we cannot provide substantive comment on the order," state the bishops...

The projections that have been projected onto me are of a severe negative understanding of homosexuality that appear closely associated to Burke’s hostile treatment of gay people.  Burke presents the idea of homosexuality, as if were the worst situation in the world. “Who will want you if they know you are a homosexual?” This is the statement that was emphatically made to me at the same time I was told that would be sent away to be re-educated on the subject of sexual orientation, June of 1997. For an adult - this statement expresses an inordinate intensity of overwhelming dreaded fear of being a homosexual. It is more reminiscent of the emotional state of a child, who has been traumatized by the threat being abandoned.

Being "gay

 "Why it is a 'gift'from God!!!" Photo


This is the verdict: 
Light 
has come into the world, but 
people loved darkness instead of light because 
their deeds were evil. 
Everyone who does 
evil hates the light, and will not come 
into the light for fear that their 
deeds will be exposed. 
John 3:19-20





Behind Closed Doors


Because if this were not the case of someone who feels no sense of urgency to rid him or herself of unwanted feelings, thoughts and desires - that person would simply and civilly explain the substantiated facts regarding homosexual sexual orientation to me and work at helping me to understand. And there would be no need to do this behind closed doors, in secret or without the public knowing as well. The person would not feel threatened about answering questions related to the emerging science on homosexuality. Nor would that person feel any threat to having an open dialogue - discussions with other people, especially including professionals in the field of human sexuality. 

Revised - May 13, 2015

Instead, they have enshrined themselves (though not everyone) - in all this fiercely guarded secrecy and vigilance - to not even mention the word - "homosexual." This is the way - it was in my case, "behind closed doors," March 1997 and the way it has remained - even at the Synod 2014. From the news media interviews that Cardinal Burke has given - it is surprising how forcefully he has continued to reveal - this same heightened degree of intensity of irrationally preventing any open discussion on homosexuality - to the point of demanding that the issue of homosexuals not even be discussed (taken off the table) for the Synod 2015 - because as he states it is not even a family issue. 

Above all - an open discussion on topic of homosexual sexual orientation -  would not be a situation that was fraught with uncontrollable intensified hostile emotions - as if the person was in a state of panic. These, along with many others signs, are all giveaways signs of a severely dissociated (repressed) homosexual and of an organizational culture that is made up of predominantly severely dissociated (repressed) homosexuals, who without question are supportive of such irrational - cruel and ruthless behavior that used endlessly against gay people, especially including gay children - even when it is leading to lethal ends. And no one blinks an eye or comes to the defense of these victims - that is until the Synod 2014 for a few (maybe there were more). These few were a bright shinning light of rational hope - not seen in a long - long time and will never be forgotten.
End of Revision - May 13, 2015

However, I had no idea in, June 1997 or on February 15, 2008 - just how pervasive and lethal this Vatican antigay demagoguery was globally. Being jobless, and forced into isolation by their design - it left me to concentrate all my time and effort in protecting children by starting the Thalamus Center. It was this project that threw me into researching further and deeper into this cancerous phenomenon - this Vatican antigay demagoguery. I would only later find out how extensively it has been used as a political wedge - to usher certain people into elective office in the USA. And later, from documentation it plain to realize how this continuous rise of the Vatican antigay demagoguery that began with Hunthausen in the 1980s to the present day: - so closely paralleled the deregulation of many of the legal economic safeguards that has led us into depths of globalization where profits are valued over the individual lives of human beings, including leading us into a war that is highly debated was under false pretenses. 

It was only at the arrival of Pope Francis on the scene that I fell that children were in much safer hands, because of his honestly, his sense of realism without losing any spirituality and above all  his plain and simply respect for the dignity of each and every human being. Now that is what it means to be Catholic - to be a disciple of Christ, as Christ has told us - they will know that you are my disciple by the love you have for one another, as I have loved you. 

In the wake of Pope Francis work reforming the curia, he has not only greatly increased the level of transparency and lessened the bureaucratic anonymity, but in his manner of doing so - he established a stark contrast - next to this pervasive Vatican antigay demagoguery accepted culture of the curia and hierarchy - though as the Synod 2014 has shown this is not the case of everyone. 

Pope Francis from the started, 2013, openly admitted that there is a real stream of corruption the exist in the curia and that he could do the work alone, but he would need a lot of help.

“Open Heart Surgery”


This Vatican antigay demagoguery grew out of this collective dissociation of homosexuality pervasive in curia and hierarchy. No member of the hierarchy nor the curia or even Cardinal Burke would allow someone to perform “open heart surgery” on them - if that person did not have proper credentials (knowledge, training and experience) to perform open heart surgery. This would be blatantly true, even if it was a member of the curia or hierarchy - who most dogmatically believed that he was qualified to do “open heart surgery” without the proper credentials, even emphatically stating that the need for such credentials were part of a “heart surgeon agenda” to take over hospitals. He definitely would not be allowed to the surgery. Photo 

Global Synod 2015
Gay Agenda???


However, in making a life and death - decision about sexual orientation - human sexuality (Synod 2014 & 2015) - that will negatively continue and violently - effect the lives millions of millions of children as young as 4 and 5 years of ages, including adults globally: (1) these same members of the curia and hierarchy without the any proper credentials (knowledge, training and experience) regarding human sexuality, (2) who in fact have strongly opposed and discredited such science as the product of a gay agenda and (3) approved of the silencing and removable anyone in the Church who openly discussed it - they believe they are fully qualified and even deemed by God to make such a decision. And where do they get the confidence and support to back them in making this decision without any qualification to do so - where else - but from the collective dissociation - the organizartional culture embodied in the members of curia and hierarchy. This phenomenon is known as groupthink that has been proven to caused catastrophic events - killing lives. Photo

This kind of collective action is not only heretical it is pure lunacy. It also, set an example for major global corporations to follow - to further dehumanize humans beings - to insure profits. Photo

And how I am treated - regarding my “coming out” in March 1997 - for the protection of gay children and the situational context of the past 18 years of my life that has been reduced to a number - as the protocol number 20131723/F - in answering the question - “Obedient to Whom?” - will speak volumes and set an example globally - of the competency, the  credibility of the curia and the hierarchy, as globally leaders of the Catholic Church. 

It is because - I am a nobody, a person of little consequence, the least among us - makes it an issue. I do not say this arrogantly - because the overall importance is the protection of gay children. The science regarding sexual orientation and gender issues is widely known and has been for decades - that is of course, outside the insulated and isolated culture of the curia and hierarchy.

Update: 5/03/15


A new command I give you: Love one another. 
As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, 
if you love one another.
John 13:34-35

Any attempt to save face in a sense of collegiality among the members of curia and hierarchy - by discrediting even in the slightest the person with the protocol number 20131723/F or refusing proper restitution - for the harm inflicted upon me by the Vatican - with all due respect, if you will pardon the expression - you can kiss your ass - Good-by! 

I say this in no way to protect myself - because the issue is not about me it is about truth and children - all children globally.  The only thing I can be accused of - is resisting risking my life - in standing up for children, by “coming out.” And isn't that the very core of what it means to be a priest that we willingly sacrifice our lives for others, most especially for children! Or did you become a priest so that you could wear a dress! I willingly admit - I tried to get out of what I knew I had to do, however, now - it has been passed on to you. Photo

I will explain, as I have written to many US politicians, how I handled this situation: 


WELL-INFORMED CONSCIENCE
Protect Religious Freedom - but not 
Tyranny in Religion 
June 20, 2011
The way to begin for us all, not only the NY State Senators, to protect Religious Freedom and not Tyranny in Religion is by obtaining a well-informed conscience.  We start by individually approaching and studying in great detail, because it involves the lives of children, from the best and the brightest (1) scripture scholars regarding the references related to homosexuality and (2) scientists in the field of study of human sexuality, in particular, but [not] limited to, the onset of sexual orientation. The prerequisite to the formation of a well-informed conscience is making a thorough study of all sides of the issue from all available authoritative data and research, including opposing views. Then in this way we are better equipped to decide who and what needs government protection in regards to the gay marriage bill. This exhaustive procedure follows to the letter the Gospel quotation about the “plank” and the” speck.”

How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. 
Luke 6:42

The “plank” for us is ignorance.  If we satisfactorily resolve this ignorance, then together we will be able to see more clearly, whether or not, as NY State Senators (government officials) and as citizens we are colluding with the Catholic Hierarchy and are harming children, as was found to be the case in the Ireland Murphy Report.
…This piece of legislation the gay marriage bill is not like any other in that it involves the well-being of children, at its very root…
How I resolved this situation was through hours upon hours of continuous prayer. Afterwards, I came to the realization that my life had already been altered – changed forever. Because there was no way I could pretend I did not know what I knew, how severely children are harmed for life by the Vatican unsubstantiated antigay teachings and antigay social norms. I decided that I could not live with the regret knowing that I had a chance to make a profound difference for the better for others, most especially children and that I did nothing. My life would be nothing. I took the bungee jump and I came out to my parishioners. It definitely was not easy, but one thing that happened to me is - I gained a real sense of peace and well-being that has remained constant and unshaken. The scripture passages that kept repeating over and over in my head were:

For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 
Matthew 16:25

February 10, 2013 - Fr. Kurylowicz’s letter sent to US government officials...
I made an appeal to counteract Bishop Hurley’s manipulation of canon law in order to be able to charge me on a technicality “not returning home” by separating it from the situation that caused it after I came out 1997. Letter gives an extensive accounting of my “coming out” situation of 1997 - not separated from Hurley’s charges against me. 



There is a collective dissociation related thought of being homosexual that is pervasive throughout curia and hierarchy - and again it does not apply to everyone or in the same degree.

The dissociation is directly related to early childhood trauma caused by the enforcement of antigay social and religious norms. This is because the truth about sexual orientation is directly involved with our ability, as human beings - to love and to be loved - another human being. 


April 2009 - SEXUAL ORIENTATION is less about sex and more about LOVE, being one with another human being. Attachment Theory - - LOVE & RELIGION --- Fr. Marty Kurylowicz 

Nothing in life is more precious than the intimate relationships we have with love ones. Healthy love relationships delight us give us confidence to take on challenges and support us in difficult times...


In brief, the trauma occurs when a child of 4 or 5 years of age is innocently expressing some gesture of love or affection that comes naturally to the child - towards the same-sex parent or caretaker or relative and is abruptly rejected and/or reprimanded for expressing love. The rejection and/or reprimand is motivated by the parent’s understanding of the antigay social or religious norms.  It is important understand -  that to a child - no matter how seemly slight or implicit it may seem to the adult - the rejection of this kind will be overwhelming to the child. Why?

First, the child has no understanding what was wrong with expressing love, because at a younger age such signs of affection were likely reciprocated with an outpouring of love. However, around the ages of 4 and 5 - such same-sex gestures of affections have not subsided for the child and are likely becoming worrisome for the adult caretaker(s). This happens - for any number or combination of reasons all related to the adults understanding of the antigay social and religious norms,  such as, though not limited to: (1) worries that they are causing the child to be gay, (2) fears that the child’s future will be filled with hardships and violence, (3) fear of the belief that God will send their child to hell, (4) fears about the family social status, (5) more irrationally that the child is cognizant of wrong doing, (6) conscious or unconscious fears about the parent’s or adult caregiver’s own repressed homosexual feelings, etc.  

All the above aspects are subject to (a) the kind of parental and or adult caregiver’s rejection/reprimand i.e. whether implicit, explicit or both, (b) the degree of intensity that it was imparted to the child, (c) the number of times it was repeated and (d) by whom - that will effect the severity of lifetime harm that is caused to the child. 

Second, the early childhood trauma of this type - is it not the same as a child witnessing domestic violence, or a catastrophic event(s) I.e. natural disasters (floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.), or living in a war zone - these are all traumatizing to a child causing lasting lifelong harmful effects. The lifetime harmful effects caused by the influence of antigay social and religious norms attack the cord of a human being - severely mutilating a child’s spirit - the child’s ability to love and to be loved, which is the very essence of living. 

The child feels rejected, not because the child was misbehaving i.e. fighting, throwing a tantrum, refusing to eat vegetables, running around and in the process knocking over & breaking priceless historical artifacts. The child feels rejected - for doing something child knows to be a good thing - expressing love/affection - wanting to be one with another human being - child’s parent. 

It is the shock of the withdrawal of empathic caring (unconditional love) of the parent and or the adult caregiver that is traumatizing to the child. The child in varying degrees feels abandoned by the parents or caregivers - the key figure(s) the child is dependent on. Because what the child has likely for the most part been able to count on as stable - the empathic caring of a parent’s ability to tune into the needs of the child, essential to the developmental process of the life of the child - had vanished, which is terrifying for a child. The experiencing of unpleasant emotions for a child that is different from an emotional mature adult is that the adult knows that unpleasant emotions are not lasting. When a child is experiencing of an unpleasant emotion - the child thinks it will last forever and ever - never ending. The child’s only defense mechanism available is to attempt to block out every aspect of the unpleasant emotion from consciousness. The child’s dissociates from the unpleasant emotion by separating it from the memory of the event by relegating it to the unconscious. Though the memory of the unpleasant emotion is out of conscious sight, however, it remains alive and active in the unconscious.

Background information - 1997 - 2015:  Photo


Fr Marty Kurylowicz’s “Coming Out” 1997 
News Reports: 

March 29, 1997 - Parishioners Supportive of Gay Priest “coming out” for the protection of children. 
(check The Grand Rapids Press for accuracy)

June 28, 1997 - Kurylowicz Comes Out 
“...U.S. Catholic Bishops Conference said Kurylowicz” coming out to his congregation, first in a newsletter then from the pulpit on Holy Thursday, is “unprecedented.”
(check The Grand Rapids Press for accuracy)

October 8, 2005 - Impending rules on gay priests creates Catholic divide
…Rev. Martin Kurylowicz...said...the struggle would be made harder for many others if the Vatican issues new rules that reportedly would ban gays from becoming priests… “Kids as young as 4 or 5 know they're different," said Kurylowicz... "They grow up with this pervasive guilt, which sabotages their growth and motivation." The result is thousands of dollars in therapy to accept their natural orientation, he said, adding, "Does the Vatican want to take that on, like the tobacco industry had to take on for the damage it caused consumers?”...
(check The Grand Rapids Press for accuracy)

May 27, 2006 - Gay priest removed from ministry
(check The Grand Rapids Press for accuracy)


Note: Bishop Hurley unethically manipulates canon law misrepresenting my situation: by excluding the factual details of the Vatican’s equally unethical punitive sanctions and threats imposed on me for “coming out” for the protection of children in March 1997, e.g. lost of the possibility of future assignments, regular priest salary and educational benefits, to  coerce my compliance to be reeducated - to assure my silence in protecting children or to force me to leave the priesthood. Hurley’s dishonest response to the press was meant to destroy my credibility and reputation. Hurley also disclosed the cost of my psychotherapy sessions, a breach of employer employee confidentially. There are No USA civil laws to protect gay priests from such a fatal destructive public attack on my reputation. The same tactic was used, again in 2012, against Vatican Bank, ex-president Tedeschi, who was attempting to increase the transparency of the scandal-ridden Vatican institution. There is “…the publication of a letter from a psychotherapist detailing the mental health of the Vatican's recently ousted bank chief…and appeared aimed at further discrediting and humiliating the Vatican bank's ex-president, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, once a top papal adviser…”(http://www.businessweek.com/ap/2012-06/D9VBK7581.htm
   Hurley’s deliberate distortion of the facts of my situation was meant to humiliate me publicly, a character assassination against me. This was not just one single isolated character assassination attack made against me. The exact pattern of this character assassination attack, since 2004 to 2014  has been over used by the Vatican under Benedict XVI - against anyone - deemed as a threat to their specific ideology, especially related to gay sexual orientation. On, April 30, 2014, Cardinal Muller of the CDF, issued a forceful public statement against the LCWR leaders that is confusing and irrationally based on a misrepresentation of unsubstantiated facts. Cardinal Burke during and after the Synod on the Family, October 2014 - fiercely demonstrated by his unwillingness to even discuss issues related marriage and gay sexual orientation, the pervasive hostile attitude against homosexuality.

Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this 
child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 
And whoever welcomes one such child in 
my name welcomes me.

Welcoming homosexual persons
Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community...
...homosexual unions it has to be noted that there are cases in whichmutual aid to the point of sacrifice constitutes a precious support in the life of the partners.

A new command I give you: Love one another. 
As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, 
if you love one another.
John 13:34-35


Lawful Church Authority?

We are to obey only lawful authority. How are we to identify lawful Church authority? Jesus has told us how we can determine lawful authority in the Church that we will know his disciples, if they love one another, in the same way that he loved them.  Jesus loved us all to the point of dying for us. Photos


Reported 
Ruthless and Deceitful
Cold-blooded Murderers

Well, this certainly negates much of the Roman Curia and hierarchy as lawful authority for the past few decades - considering the saturation of infighting, character assassinations (e.g. Dino Boffo case), and corruption that exists throughout the curia, as reported in the Vatileaks that led Pope Benedict XVI to unexpectedly resigned the papacy. The need for reform was so pervasive that it became the mandate that was given to Pope Francis at the time of his election, March 2013. And although, Pope Francis has made significant progress, along with his diversified entourage of colleagues, consultants and experts, to make the much needed reforms, notably with the Vatican Bank (http://fortune.com/2014/08/14/this-pope-means-business/) - according to his, December 22, 2014, address to the curia, there still remains a considerable amount of infighting, gossip, character assassinations, calling them “cold-blooded murderers (http://en.radiovaticana.va/news/2014/12/22/).” Even as recent as, February 2015, a character assassination attack was made against Cardinal Pell by an anonymous member or members of the curia leaking false information about his activities to the news media (http://www.cruxnow.com/church/2015/02/28/the-vaticans-financial-reform-the-nasty-is-back/ -- & -- http://www.cruxnow.com/church/2015/03/03/on-financial-reform-pope-francis-doesnt-blink/).

Vatileaks - Background links: 

Vatican Confidential: Why Are So Many Rumors Coming out of the Holy See? - 2/22/12
...In the past few weeks, the Holy See has sprung a series of leaks. Their contents range from allegations of corruption and cronyism in Rome, to internal criticism of a Vatican effort to tackle money laundering...
Each leak would be embarrassing enough on its own. Together, they add up to a picture of disarray at the top tiers of the Catholic Church...
...A likely target is Pope Benedict XVI's second-in-command, Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone. Appointed in 2006 to run the day-to-day affairs of the Vatican while the pope focused on affairs of the spirit...
...In this view, the leaks are in part attacks on Bertone's administration, but also the manifestation of behind-the-scenes maneuvering, driven by internal rivalries and the beginnings of the inevitable battle for succession. "You've got lots of groups, clans, small and medium, that in the confusion are fighting with each other,"...

The mood at the Vatican is apocalyptic. Pope Benedict XVI seems tired, and both unable and unwilling to seize the reins amid fierce infighting and scandal. While Vatican insiders jockey for power and speculate on his successor, Joseph Ratzinger has withdrawn to focus on his still-ambiguous legacy.
...A House in Disarray
   Fear is running rampant in the Curia...No one trusts anyone anymore...
