Empathy influences connection and compassion in the most beautiful and genuine ways.

Human Bonding
The Science of Affectional Ties
Edited by Cindy Hazan and Mary I. Campa
…”Human Bonding: The Science of Affectional Ties" (Guilford Press) provides a scientific roadmap to love, relationships and what makes them strong – from our first attachments in infancy through old age.
“It is amply documented that people with close social ties are happier, healthier and even live longer than those without such ties; indeed, our very survival as a species depends on the formation and maintenance of strong social bonds,” said Cindy Hazan, co-editor of the book, associate professor of human development in the College of Human Ecology and a founder in the field of relationship science.
“A central aim of this book is to provide an integrative, science-based overview of human bonding across the lifespan,” she said…

The one single missing element among the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy that tells the whole story about the truth of the science on the sexual orientation of homosexuality that homosexuality is as normal as heterosexuality is - empathy. It is collectively their inability, to connect to other people, even to connect among themselves that has been observed and documented for more than the past 30 years. They are unable to see and feel the world through the experience of another person. Due to the extreme homogeneity of this population: e.g. all celibate, male, RC ordained clerics, chosen for their rigidity to doctrine to hold top authority positions in the Church (having little to absolutely no judicial oversight) the absence of empathy (demonstrated by their inability of connect to anyone or to form lifelong meaningful and fulfilling relationships) coupled with their fierce and relentless obsessive antigay crusade, for the past 30 years - they validate the truth of the science on homosexuality. They validate the truth by their sustaining lifelong harmful effects caused by the parental force suppression of their gay sexual orientation during early childhood years growing up gay. All children are harmed by the violence directed towards gay people in a given social environment, such as witnessing gay people being tossed off rooftops ten stories high to their death. However, it is only the gay child, who is most likely to become obsessively antigay violent in the child's adult years. Why? 

This absence of empathy has become so entrenched over the past several decades in the organizational culture of the curia and hierarchy that it has become a most deadly form of groupthink. Its absence is never questioned - worst it is not even noticed among themselves that empathy  is missing. It generates and permits violence in the world far more destructive than what was caused by Hitler and the Nazi regime. It is the most insidious form of structural violence. It is the completely accepted breach of the dialogue between the science and religion on the sexual orientation of homosexuality that Pope Benedict XVI has warned us would only come at “an enormous price to human development…”








































Close-mindedness

The absence of empathy is one of the most striking contrast between Pope Francis and the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy. Even, presently, this contrast of the absence of empathy is clearly evident by Cardinal Muller, Cardinal Burke and a band of some 62 others people are obsessed about Pope Francis spreading heresy over his 2016 document, Amoris Laetitia wanting to debate this document that makes no doctrinal changes, only clearly highlights what has been the Church practice in the past. They have absolutely no substantiated reasoning for demanding a debate, but what is even more shocking they are oblivious to the life and death suffering of the migrants and refugees, not to mention the nuclear antics of Trump with North Korea bringing us to the brink of nuclear war. Pope Francis has been working night and day to negotiate world peace and the protection for the poor, including making great efforts to reverse the effects of climate change.

Pope appeals for end to conflicts, climate change in fight against hunger, migration
16/10/2017
(Vatican Radio)  Pope Francis on Monday appealed to the international community not only to guarantee enough production and fair distribution of food for all but also to ensure the right of every human being to feed himself according to his needs without being forced to leave his home and loved ones. 
He made the call at the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome, where he marked World Food Day, which this year has as its theme, “Change the future of migration. Invest in Food Security and rural development.”
Conflicts and climate-change
Addressing the UN’s specialized agency that leads the international community’s fight against hunger and malnutrition in the world, the Pope urged governments to work together to end the conflicts and climate-change related disasters that force people to leave their homes in search of their daily bread. Citing the 2016 Paris climate accord in which governments committed themselves to combatting global warming, the Pope who spoke in Spanish, regretted that “unfortunately some are distancing themselves from it.”  
He noted that negligence and greed over the world's limited resources are harming the planet and its most vulnerable people, forcing many to abandon their homes in search of work and food.  He called for a change in lifestyle and the use of resources, adding it cannot be left for others to do…

Pope Francis: War and climate change cause hunger; stop treating it as an incurable illness
October 16, 2017
“It’s clear that wars and climate change cause hunger; let us stop presenting it as an incurable illness,” Pope Francis said in a powerful keynote address at the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization on Oct.16. He called on governments worldwide to take collaborative action to overcome the three interconnected plagues of conflict, climate change and hunger.
“In this situation, we can and we must change direction,” the pope said. “What is at stake is the credibility of the whole international system.” His audience included government ministers from the Group of Seven countries: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States, as well as the ambassadors of F.A.O. member states and the organization’s top officials.
Francis spelled out several concrete steps that need to be taken by governments and the international community at a moment in which hunger is on the rise for the first time in decades, with 815 million people suffering from chronic undernourishment and millions of migrants worldwide, as the F.A.O.’s director general, José Graziano da Silva, told the pope in his welcome address.
“The relation between hunger and migrations can only be faced if we go to the roots of the problem,” Pope Francis said, speaking in Spanish. He noted that studies conducted by the United Nations and civil society groups concur that to effectively address the problems of hunger and migration “two main obstacles have to be overcome: conflicts and climate change.”
He said international law has the means “for preventing and rapidly resolving” conflict and avoiding “famine and destruction of the social fabric.” What is needed is “goodwill and dialogue to stop the conflicts and a total commitment in favor of a gradual and systematic disarming [of the combatants], as envisaged by the Charter of the United Nations, as well as remedying the terrible plague of the arms trade.”…

The contrast of empathy here is as clear as night and day. With on due respect, it is a wonder how Muller and Burke were ever assigned to any position in the curia. They were not only useless in the curia, but they were extremely dangerous - how many millions of lives, including children were destroyed and lethally harmed by their criminal negligence, a form of structural violence. They were useless in the sense that they could NOT connect to people's problems, or to each other or individually to themselves, their distorted view and misuse of canon law got in their way. For reasons that will be explained below, canon law became their guiding force, instead of Christ. They used canon law as a weapon for their self-righteous indignation - a product stemming from their early childhood abuse - the forced suppression of their gay sexual orientation. “The Sabbath day was made for man. Man was not made for the Sabbath day (Mark 2:27).” It is - yet another aspect of love they got twisted around to mean the opposite (Pope Benedict XVI). Canon Law was made for man, Man was not made for Canon Law. 












Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath Day
One Sabbath day Jesus was walking with his disciples 
through the grainfields. The disciples began to 
break off some heads of grain. 
The Pharisees said to Jesus, “Look! It is against the Law 
to do this on the Sabbath day. Why are your disciples doing it?”
He answered, “Haven’t you ever read about what David did? 
He and his men were hungry. They needed food. It was 
when Abiathar was high priest. David entered the 
house of God and ate the holy bread. Only 
priests were allowed to eat it. 
David also gave some to his men.”
Then Jesus said to them, 
“The Sabbath day was made for man. 
Man was not made for the Sabbath day.
Mark 2:23-27


Muller and Burke like the screaming antigay hysterics protesting Fr. James Martin speaking at the CUA - going public has only proved to be more embarrassing for them, because next to Pope Francis's efforts to save the world - it exposes the emptiness of their complaints. It then begs the question why they are not totally involved in helping Pope Francis. 

Their inability to connect to anyone - is evident by: (1) their infamous internal conflicts, as noted in the Vatileaks 2012, and in Pope Francis's Christmas address to the curia, December 22, 2014, "the Pope listed 15 spiritual “ailments” encountered in the Curia, and urged the bureaucratic leadership to renew its effort to heal itself as Christmas approaches"  (2) their closeted gay sexual acting out escapades, (a) with anonymous sex partners and (b) the need to be intoxicated before having sex and (3) the times that they do come together - it is over being quite angry about something like Amoris Laetitia, or Fr. James Martin speaking at the CUA. They self-fuel their own anger by exaggerating situations out context and overlooking pertinent pieces of information to increase the height of their anger and to sustained it. They do not want anyone to calm their anger or to provide the missing pieces of rationale that would dissipate their anger. Their hatred is an addiction - a hate addiction - that like drug addictions - intense anger anesthetizes the brain - numbing out all unpleasant emotions. As stated in Part 3 - “The way you make love is the way you do everything in life.” Whether their intercourse with people is verbal or physical - they are as disconnected from people as they are to their co-workers in the curia- as noted by their never ending internal conflicts (Vatileaks 2012), described as “cold-blooded killers” (Pope Francis, December 22, 2014).  Among them and their vocal supporters e.g. their screaming antigay hysterics, and those accusing Pope Francis of heresy  - there is no sign of anything that remotely resembles empathy. Why?    

Pope Francis's actions not heretical, just human
September 26, 2017
(CNN)Is Catholicism about faith and compassion, or rigid doctrine and exclusion? According to a group of conservative Catholics who just accused Pope Francis of spreading heresy, it's the latter.
Sixty-two (somewhat marginal) Catholic scholars and clergy have signed a letter that disputes Francis' signaling of his willingness to allow divorced and remarried people to receive communion. This, they say, is immoral and heretical, a sign of Francis "misleading the flock." Far better, in this retrograde reading of doctrine, to ostracize and shame the remarried as "adulterers" and the divorced as sinful failures.
Really?
I've seen how this "old way" played out in my own family, and it puts Pope Francis' more reform-minded church in useful perspective. My grandparents were devout Catholics, married young, and had five children; my grandfather also beat my grandmother. She eventually left -- a painful and terrifying decision for a woman with only a high school degree in 1950s America. She supported the five kids by working multiple low-wage jobs at once. He did his damnedest to skirt financial responsibility, and she struggled her entire life…

Empathy is the fierce driving force behind Pope Francis inclusive nature of bringing everyone into the Church with particular attention paid to the poor, those who are suffering the most in the world and have been forgotten. Principally, Pope Francis is able to connect, be as one with another human being. He is able to experience the diversity of people’s happiness and their pain. This is the meaning of empathy. Pope Francis, instantly connected with the world after he was elected, when it was found out through the news media reporters about the past several decades of his un-quivering care for the poor. It was his actual walking through the slums of Buenos Aires, Argentina, the face-to-face - one-on-one conversations he had with the people living there that astonished people all over the world - leaving them speechless. They were further astonished by the fact that he used public transportation shunning the use of a limousine, lived in a two room apartment, cooked his own meals, even paid his own hotel bill and chose not to live in the papal Apostolic Palace, but to remain in Casa Santa Marta - the Vatican guest house. At the age of 76 years old, a person either did or did not do these things and the public knew it, Pope Francis was authentic, the real McCoy. He was beloved before he ever spoke a public word. Why?










Pope Francis shunned official papal apartments to live 'normal life’
29 May 2013
     He has told a friend that he likes being in daily contact with ordinary people, does not want to be isolated and enjoys sitting down to meals with visiting clergy.
     The Pope, 76, who on first seeing the papal apartments reportedly exclaimed "But there is room here for 300 people!”…
      The Pope broke with Vatican tradition when he decided…not to live in the apostolic apartments.
      Instead he opted to remain in the Casa Santa Marta, a Vatican residence which accommodates visiting clergy and lay people, where he had stayed with his fellow cardinals during the conclave…

Pope Francis’s respect and kindness towards gay people has been most extraordinary, especially at the horrific time of the Orlando gay shootings, June 2016. However, his constant public concern for migrants and refugees, the people in most need of our care and support, has been as redeeming as it has been renewing to the whole Church. Pope Francis refers to himself as a sinner, literally a sinner. His focus is entirely, to the best of his ability, on Christ and what Christ asks us all to do for others, most especially for the least of among us. We know from organizational psychology that the loyalty and morale of a company’s employees, which includes productivity - is largely depended on how well the company treats their employees, especially those at the lowest levels. This is true even though as researchers have found that - it may seem on the surface - as if no one in the company cares what happens to these employees. However, researchers have found - that below the surface - all eyes in the company are attune to how they are treated. It is a forecast on how well all the company’s employees will be treated. 


Proof That Positive Work Cultures Are More Productive
Harvard Business Review - December 1, 2015 
Creating a positive and healthy culture for your team rests on a few major principles…
…2. Show empathy. As a boss, you have a huge impact on how your employees feel. A telling brain-imaging study found that, when employees recalled a boss that had been unkind or un-empathic, they showed increased activation in areas of the brain associated with avoidance and negative emotion while the opposite was true when they recalled an empathic boss. Moreover, Jane Dutton and her colleagues in the CompassionLab at the University of Michigan suggest that leaders who demonstrate compassion toward employees foster individual and collective resilience in challenging times. 
3. Go out of your way to help. Ever had a manager or mentor who took a lot of trouble to help you when he or she did not have to? Chances are you have remained loyal to that person to this day.  Jonathan Haidt at New York University’s Stern School of Business shows in his research  that when leaders are not just fair but self-sacrificing, their employees are actually moved and inspired to become more loyal and committed themselves. As a consequence, they are more likely to go out of their way to be helpful and friendly to other employees, thus creating a self-reinforcing cycle. Daan Van Knippenberg of Rotterdam School of Management shows that employees of self-sacrificing leaders are more cooperative because they trust their leaders more. They are also more productive and see their leaders as more effective and charismatic…
In sum, a positive workplace is more successful over time because it increases positive emotions and well-being. This, in turn, improves people’s relationships with each other and amplifies their abilities and their creativity. It buffers against negative experiences such as stress, thus improving employees’ ability to bounce back from challenges and difficulties while bolstering their health. And, it attracts employees, making them more loyal to the leader and to the organization as well as bringing out their best strengths. When organizations develop positive, virtuous cultures they achieve significantly higher levels of organizational effectiveness — including financial performance, customer satisfaction, productivity, and employee engagement.

The second, most striking contrast between Pope Francis and the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy is that Pope Francis does not share in the least their fierce antigay obsessive crusade for the past 30 years. They have ruthlessly silenced and removed anyone - who openly discusses the emerging science on the sexual orientation on homosexuality that established in 1957, 60 years ago that homosexuals who are open and accepting about their gay sexual orientation are found to be as normal as heterosexuals.

Illustration & Recording Reactions 

Since the arrival of Pope Francis on the scene, he has been a vivid contrast to the standard and dominant antigay organizational culture that has engulfed the Vatican by the curia and hierarchy for the past several decades. This clerical antigay culture is deeply entrenched, it has been fostered and maintained by the “cardinals in the Roman Curia, the Vatican's administrative and judicial apparatus” who “wield power with absolutely no checks…” This obsessive antigay culture of the Roman Curia is embedded in and supported by societal antigay prejudices, both have absolutely no knowledge of the science on the sexual orientation of homosexuality. Together, they not only contribute to the pervasive harm to children in the digital world, but they are far more destructive to the lives of children. 

Pope: protecting children in the digital world top priority
06/10/2017 
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis received the participants in the first-ever World Congress on Child Dignity in the Digital World on Friday. The Centre for Child Protection at the Pontifical Gregorian University hosted the four-day event, which brought experts in child care, internet security, law enforcement, education, and a host of other fields together to share experiences and best practices, with a view to addressing the problem of the effective protection of the dignity of minors in the digital world…

We are aware how the ignorance societal antigay prejudices had been easily exploited by Hitler that allowed him to become dictator and how the same ushered in and maintain the growth of globalization. The harm to children in the digital world is a form of direct violence, however, the pervasive ignorance of the science on homosexuality of the curia and hierarchy that fuels the same in societal antigay prejudices is a form of structural violence.

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…

 Truly, truly, I say to you, 
unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, 
it remains alone; but if it dies,
 it bears much fruit. 
He who loves his life loses it, and 
he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal.
 If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and 
where I am, there My servant will be also; 
if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.
John 12: 23-26


Our diligent research and study to find truth and therefore love - begins with Dr. Evelyn Hooker’s empirical science on homosexuality in the USA, 1957 - at the completion of her most notable and ground breaking research proving that homosexuality is not a mental illness titled:

"The Adjustment of the Male Overt Homosexual"
 in which she administered several psychological tests to groups of self-identified male homosexuals and heterosexuals and asked experts to identify the homosexuals and rate their mental health. The experiment, which other researchers subsequently repeated, argues that homosexuality is not a mental disorder, as there was no detectable difference between homosexual and heterosexual men in terms of mental adjustment…



Being Gay Is Just as Healthy as Being Straight
Evelyn Hooker's pioneering research debunked the popular myth that homosexuals are inherently less mentally healthy than heterosexuals, leading to significant changes in how psychology views and treats people who are gay...
Hooker's work was the first to empirically test the assumption that gay men were mentally unhealthy and maladjusted. The fact that no differences were found between gay and straight participants sparked more research in this area and began to dismantle the myth that homosexual men and women are inherently unhealthy.
In conjunction with other empirical results, this work led the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from the DSM in 1973 (it had been listed as a sociopathic personality disorder). In 1975, the American Psychological Association publicly supported this move, stating that "homosexuality per se implies no impairment in judgment, reliability or general social and vocational capabilities…(and mental health professionals should) take the lead in removing the stigma of mental illness long associated with homosexual orientation." Although prejudice and stigma still exist in society, this research has helped millions of gay men and women gain acceptance in the mental health community.


From the subsequent empirical research that followed in the wake of her discovery we will learn the reality about sexual orientation whether it is gay, straight or bisexual - it cannot be permanently suppressed or changed. We will learn that the central purpose of our sexual orientation is about the basic human need for human attachment, which is love. This is an emotional need for the attachment of human interaction (Rene Spitz) that has been observed begins at the moment of birth - wanting to be loved, wanting to love and wanting to feel as one with another. Through the research of Rene Spitz, it was found that even though an infant’s physical needs are adequately being met, the absence of meeting the infant’s psychological emotional need for human attachment supplied through an empathic caring parent, immediately significantly threatens both the physical and mental health of the infant, even the life of the infant. 

Through Rene Spitz’s research - we can begin to understand, the kind of devastating trauma and harm that comes to child, when a child perceives even the slightest signs of parental abandonment. The child perceives the world through the limited view of a child’s mind that is still in the process of developing all the mental components that lead to the cognitive capabilities of an adult. A child who is being force to suppress any outward sign of a gay sexual orientation, regardless how mildly or implicitly it is convey to the child - will tend to be traumatized by the parental demands that the child does not have the capability to understand. This likely leaves the child in a state of being overwhelmed by the perceived abandonment of his parents. In addition, the child not having the mental capability to understand the adult’s twisted concept of what gay means (the absence science on homosexuality, etc.) is disorienting for the child on at least three crucial counts: (1) no understanding of the meaning of gay, (2) it is an irrational demand based on the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices and (3) in ways severing in varying degrees the child’s trust need for human attachment essential for the development of empathy and in forming of future relationships.

It leaves the child in kind of childlike terror not knowing how to rectify the situation. Out of fear of parental abandonment that child is likely to no longer trust his natural impulses to love. The child gives up being guided by love and looks for outside directions from others (or canon law) and rigidly follows for fear of repeating the childhood traumatizing episodes. However, the child will spend an extraordinary amount of time, especially beginning in his adolescent years, suppressing any outward expression his gay sexual orientation, which he has more than likely never fully acknowledged exists. And as Rene Spitz points out that the lack of any emotional human attachment leads to the likely possible of a deterioration his mental and physical well-being, including the possibility of risky dissociated gay sexual acting out episodes, and additive behavior. 

From Rene Spitz we learn how crucial for life the need for human attachment that begins at birth is and remains constant throughout life. We learned that the absence of human attachment severely impacts the infant’s ability to thrive causing many mental disorders and physical disabilities that has been lethal for others. Dr. Spitz sums it up in clear terms that it is the lack of love that is hurting the infants and even killing them, because they are missing the all importance of loving parental relationships (http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/2013/07/31/the-orphanage-problem/). 


Attachment is a deep and enduring emotional bond that connects one person to another across time and space (Ainsworth, 1973; Bowlby, 1969)…
Attachment behavior in adults towards the child includes responding sensitively and appropriately to the child’s needs. Such behavior appears universal across cultures. Attachment theory explains how the parent-child relationship emerges and influences subsequent development…
In the 1930’s John Bowlby worked as a psychiatrist in a Child Guidance Clinic in London, where he treated many emotionally disturbed children. 
This experience led Bowlby to consider the importance of the child’s relationship with their mother in terms of their socialemotional and cognitive development…

The need for human attachment is essential for human survival remaining constant throughout life is a gradual developing architecture of human attachment (incremental) that is interconnected with the development of sexual orientation and empathy (Infant attachment to Adult attachment Bowlby, Ainsworth, Hazan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attachment_and_Health#Infant_attachment  and  -https://www.guilford.com/books/Human-Bonding/Hazan-Campa/9781462510672/editors). The relationship attachments that are constructed in early childhood - is the blueprint for all future relationships that includes other aspects of life i.e. professions,   careers, arts, music, sports activities, organizations, hobbies, etc.

Humans are social beings and need to be with others and form relationships but our relationship behaviors do not "come naturally" and they need to be learned similar to other social skills (Schneider, Gruman & Coutts, 2005, p.77). Many psychologists argue that the kind of relationships infants have with their primary caregivers is the blueprint for the later life relationships (Schneider, Gruman & Coutts, 2005). Behaviors in adult relationships' are influenced by the kinds of relationships and attachments they have experienced in their early years with their primary caregivers. This is the basic perspective of the theory of attachment styles that claims that the kind of bonds we form early in life influence the kinds of relationships we form as adults (Aronson, Wilson, & Akert, 2011)…

The Cradle to the Grave” - Emotional Bond 
Infants and their Caregivers
Adult Romantic Partners

A Brief Overview of Adult Attachment Theory and Research 
Summary 
Research on adult attachment is guided by the assumption that the same motivational system that gives rise to the close emotional bond between parents and their children is responsible for the bond that develops between adults in emotionally intimate relationships… 
Bowlby's Theory of Attachment 
The theory of attachment was originally developed by John Bowlby (1907 - 1990), a British psychoanalyst who was attempting to understand the intense distress experienced by infants who had been separated from their parents. Bowlby observed that separated infants would go to extraordinary lengths (e.g., crying, clinging, frantically searching) to prevent separation from their parents or to reestablish proximity to a missing parent… 
The attachment behavior system is an important concept in attachment theory because it provides the conceptual linkage between ethological models of human development and modern theories on emotion regulation and personality. According to Bowlby, the attachment system essentially "asks" the following fundamental question: Is the attachment figure nearby, accessible, and attentive? If the child perceives the answer to this question to be "yes," he or she feels loved, secure, and confident, and, behaviorally, is likely to explore his or her environment, play with others, and be sociable. If, however, the child perceives the answer to this question to be "no," the child experiences anxiety and, behaviorally, is likely to exhibit attachment behaviors ranging from simple visual searching on the low extreme to active following and vocal signaling on the other (see Figure 1). These behaviors continue until either the child is able to reestablish a desirable level of physical or psychological proximity to the attachment figure, or until the child "wears down," as may happen in the context of a prolonged separation or loss. In such cases, Bowlby believed that young children experienced profound despair and depression
Mary Ainsworth (1913 - 1999), began to systematically study infant-parent separations that a formal understanding of these individual differences was articulated. Ainsworth and her students developed a technique called the strange situation--a laboratory paradigm for studying infant-parent attachment…
…Ainsworth's work was important for at least three reasons. First, she provided one of the first empirical demonstrations of how attachment behavior is patterned in both safe and frightening contexts. Second, she provided the first empirical taxonomy of individual differences in infant attachment patterns. According to her research, at least three types of children exist: those who are secure in their relationship with their parents, those who are anxious-resistant, and those who are anxious-avoidant. Finally, she demonstrated that these individual differences were correlated with infant-parent interactions in the home during the first year of life. Children who appear secure in the strange situation, for example, tend to have parents who are responsive to their needs. Children who appear insecure in the strange situation (i.e., anxious-resistant or avoidant) often have parents who are insensitive to their needs, or inconsistent or rejecting in the care they provide. In the years that have followed, a number of researchers have demonstrated links between early parental sensitivity and responsiveness and attachment security. 
Adult Romantic Relationships 
Although Bowlby was primarily focused on understanding the nature of the infant-caregiver relationship, he believed that attachment characterized human experience from "the cradle to the grave.”… Hazan and Shaver (1987) were two of the first researchers to explore Bowlby's ideas in the context of romantic relationships. According to Hazan and Shaver, the emotional bond that develops between adult romantic partners is partly a function of the same motivational system--the attachment behavioral system--that gives rise to the emotional bond between infants and their caregivers

Biological (Physical) and Psychological (Emotional) Processes   
Not Under Our Conscious Control

Autonomic Nervous System
Hearts beating and Breathing




We will learn from studying the - science on sexual orientation that it is composed of interrelated biological and psychological processes that are not able to be consciously controlled or suppressed. These interrelated processes function outside our conscious awareness - automatically and continuously throughout life as part of the autonomic nervous system - like the heart beating and breathing. The continuous functioning of our sexual orientation - is essential in meeting our most basic human need for love, attachment, intimacy, through which empathy is developed. The continuous functioning of our sexual orientation is as vital to human survival from the beginning of life to the end - as the heart beating and breathing. Any attempt to force the suppression of a child’s gay sexual orientation is the same as suppressing the heart and breathing rate which can cause a number of lifelong adverse effects (i.e. persistent form of depression (dysthymia), suicidal ideation, and obsessive dislike for gay people that is implicit, to explicit verbal expressions of hate, to lethal forms of violence, and torture).

The importance of this following statement bears repeating ad nauseam, because it helps to explain, in scientific terms the reason behind the obsessive antigay behavior demonstrated so vividly among the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy, and why their obsessive antigay behavior identifies is repressed dissociated homosexuals. The functioning of our individual sexual orientation is under the control of the autonomic nervous system, it is not under our conscious control. As the research will confirm that we not only do not consciously chose - the gender of the person we are attracted to nor the time of day or night or how often - when we are sexually aroused. The autonomic nervous system automatically and continuously regulates our bodily functions that are essential to sustaining our lives, such as our hearts beating or our breathing, and this includes our sexual orientation. What this means is that we do not have to consciously remember that we need to take a breath. Therefore, our sexual orientation is continuously and automatically functioning. It operates as a survival mechanism, like our hearts and our breathing. We cannot live without oxygen nor can we live without love. When we are deprived of either oxygen or love our bodies suffer the harmful effects that can be life threatening.

And the constant and continuous functioning of our sexual orientation - like the heart and breathing, is vital for sustaining not only our individual lives, but also simultaneously the lives of each other. It is responsible for supplying the necessary memories of the learned developmental skills of love and empathy of human interaction - needed for fostering and maintaining lifelong meaningful and life-giving relationships - essential for sustaining our interconnectedness with each other - collectively meeting our most basic human need that we cannot live without, which is love.

Sexual orientation refers to an enduring pattern of emotional, romantic and/or sexual attractions to men, women or both sexes... http://www.apa.org/topics/lgbt/orientation.aspx

Autonomic nervous system
  The autonomic nervous system is a control system that acts largely unconsciously and regulates bodily functions such as the heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, pupillary response, urination, and sexual arousal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomic_nervous_system


A research study 2012, at Cornell University found that measurements of pupil dilation taken while study participants viewed erotic videos of people they found attractive - was a robust indicator of - a person’s sexual orientation and of the activation of the autonomic nervous system. The results of bisexual men was of significant importance in this new study that revealed they had substantial pupil dilations to sexual videos of both men and women.

The Eyes Have It: Sex and Sexual Orientation Differences in Pupil Dilation Patterns
August 3. 2012   
pupil dilation to stimuli indicates activation of the autonomic nervous system. This system is associated with many automatic processes such as perspiration, digestion, blood pressure, and heart rate. For this reason, pupil dilation has been used as indicator of automatic response, for example, in studies of implicit reaction and cognitive load. Other research suggests that pupil dilation can reflect automatic attention, or attention that is likely not in the conscious control of participants. It is therefore unlikely that participants suppress pupil dilation to stimuli they are sexually attracted to. Pupil dilation patterns could therefore reflect, with high sensitivity, automatic attention related to sexual attraction and sexual orientation


Sexual Orientation - Interrelated 
Biological (Physical) and Psychological (Emotional)
Developmental Processes

What this means:

What this means is that child who is gay cannot change his sexual orientation to be straight or heterosexual. Furthermore: a child at the early childhood ages of 4 and 5 years of age his no concept of what an adult’s perception or understanding of what “gay” means. The child has no concept of human sexuality. A child who is gay will remain gay for the rest of his life. The gay child will be sexually aroused when he begins to reach the age of puberty by members of the same-sex in a romantic way, in the same way that a heterosexual child becomes sexually aroused by members of the opposite sex. A child’s sexual orientation is an interrelated biological and psychological developmental process. Forcing a gay child to be heterosexual - is a life threatening act of violence to the child. The lifelong harmful effects that this violent form of child abuse will cause for the child are severe disruptions in his ability to form lifelong meaningful relationships, because the crucial empathic bonding between the child and parents that began at birth has been significantly severed. 

This bond that helps the child in his developmental process of learning how to identify and to regulate his emotions, through which the child develops the ability to empathize with another human being has ended. Because the fundamental core foundation of this child/parent bonding was built on trust of an empathic caring parent, who is able to tune into the child’s needs and respond to them by meeting the child’s needs. A parent who is not able to tune into the central core being of a gay child’s perception of love and way of loving - is a traumatic disconnect for the child from the parent. This empathic break in the child/parent bond stalls a child’s completion of his emotional maturation and learning affect tolerance - a crucial developmental stage needed to make it possible for the child to be able to master the developmental maturation process of adolescence. 

The curia and the hierarchy are unfortunately a clear example of the lifelong harmful effects of being stalled indefinitely at this crucial developmental stage and never mastering the developmental maturation process of adolescence. It helps to explain the immaturity level of the curia and hierarchy  in their never ending secrecy games, their constant in fighting always playing “king of the mountain” (A childhood game involving children attempting to occupy the highest point on a raised platform or hill, while resisting attempts by other children to knock them off and replace them), telling secrets, a tattletale (a person, especially a child, who reveals secrets or informs on others), explosive emotional outbursts, throwing tantrums, arbitrarily refusing to play fair (justice), refusing to rationally openly discuss issues of human sexuality, especially gay sexual orientation, etc. 

Affect regulation and defenses against affects 
The failure to recognize one’s affects as part of one’s own information processing apparatus, tends to cause an individual to feel ruled by those emotions. Such people tend to build up their emotions to a very high intensity based on early experiences of using them to control the parental objects. Retaining such strategies in adult life may lead to a person behaving in an “out of control” fashion. Affect maturation and the development of affect tolerance during the latency period represents the most important single factor towards making possible the maturational developments in adolescence. Such achievements require the capacity to grieve effectively, making possible the renunciation of the infantile experience of the parents, and of oneself. A parallel process is the integration of the various self- representations derived from the several psychosexual developmental stages –which takes place in adolescence potentially achieving a consciously recognized wholeness of the self…

Sexual Orientation - Not Chosen 
Cannot be Changed 
Cannot be Permanently Suppressed
Mentally Dissociation = Dangerous & Violent 
Acting Out Behaviors


No one choses their sexual orientation and the gender that a person fines attractive remains stable throughout that person’s life, it identifies and confirms a person’s sexual orientation. A person’s sexual orientation functions automatically and continuously 24/7 outside a person’s conscious awareness. What this means is that a person will experience being emotionally and physically sexually aroused whenever he comes in contact with an attractive person of gender that corresponds to his sexual orientation. If the male person is gay - then whenever he sees or views images of or has thoughts of an attractive male person - he will automatically feel emotionally and physically sexually aroused. This sexual arousal happens outside the person’s conscious control. This has been demonstrated in the above research study of 2012, at Cornell University,  “The Eyes Have It: Sex and Sexual Orientation Differences in Pupil Dilation Patterns.”

Ignorance and Fear of Societal Antigay Prejudices 
I N N A T E  

Not only is a gay child, at 4 and 5 years of age (1) traumatized by his parents disproval of his expression of love, (2) he is forced to suppress something that has no adult conceptual understanding of what it is (his gay sexual orientation) and in addition, (3) he is being forced to suppress something (his gay sexual orientation) that he has no control over to suppress. Because these inhuman expectations that are placed onto the gay child happens early in life, are overwhelming to the child - (4) the child is likely not going to remember the exact situations when they started. The built in safety mechanism of early childhood protects the child from overwhelming events by relegating the memories of such events to the unconscious. The song from the American children's novel the Wizard of Oz” “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” seems to directly identify this built-in early childhood safety mechanism when to a child “all the world is a hopeless jumble” and it is sung that then “Heaven opens a magic lane.”

When all the world is a hopeless jumble
And the raindrops tumble all around
Heaven opens a magic lane

When all the clouds darken up the skyway
There's a rainbow highway to be found,
Leading from your window pane
To a place behind the sun, just a step beyond the rain

Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I 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
Away above the chimney tops, that's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds 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?




However, because of the (a) enduring parental expectations that the gay child suppress any expression of his gay sexual orientation that is supported by (b) the pervasive ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices of the social environment that the gay child is raised in - this child as an adult - will (c) erroneously and firmly believe that these societal antigay prejudices to be “innate” that they are “inborn” “natural” created by God. They are not “innate.” 

Although, it is as if heaven opens a magic lane to protect the child at that young age to survive the emotional traumatic events, - by relegating those memories to the unconscious where they are forgotten. Forgotten, yes, but in no way are they eradicated - destroyed completely forever. These extremely unpleasant feelings from early childhood will remain active causing continuous disruption throughout the person’s life. The destructive power of these feelings is only deactivated, when they are consciously remembered, identified, differentiated and put into words (Henry Krystal MD).

Love is the key to all life - it is the crucial factor to survival - not only our personal lives, but for everyone. It is the lack to love that causes problems. Much of the time spent in psychotherapy is searching and repairing times in our lives, when we experienced the painful emotions that stem from love being hindered, rejected, or denied, this is especially true during early childhood years. Such feelings experienced by a child are far more powerfully overwhelming for a child than for an adult, because an adult knows that the feelings do not last forever. However, to a child these feelings of the absence of love are amplified several times greater - they seem as if they will never, never, never end - they will go on, and on and on - forever and ever. This is traumatizing for a child, unless an empathic parent or adult caregiver is able to attune to the child’s emotional state and begins to explain the fact that feelings do not last forever and reassures the child that everything will be alright. In this one intervention, the child’s feelings are recognized and validated, as well as, being regulated and equally important the child is experiencing the meaning of empathy that helps the child to develop the ability to have empathy for others. However, when it is the parent or adult caregiver that caused the traumatizing situation, as it is when a gay child is being forced to suppress his sexual orientation - the child is likely to suffer the full effects of being traumatized and severely thwarting the child’s development of empathy, in fact, it is teaching the child through experience the opposite - to be unconcerned about what happens to other people. 

Dr. Henry Krystal, is an internationally renowned psychiatrist - noted for his extensive work with Holocaust survivors and traumatized people. Dr. Krystal describes - when such overwhelming emotions are separated from the situations that caused them and then are buried (for a child this automatically happens i.e. “Heaven opens a magic lane”) - 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 recognizedreceived, 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 repressionisolation, 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...

However, this  erroneous belief that these societal antigay prejudices to be “innate” that they are “inborn” “natural” created by God - does not bear good fruit, instead it bears bad fruit. It is the destruction of the child's well-being and to all of society, as well, because it is the death of the development of human empathy. It significantly disrupts - the essential life-sustaining need of human bonding - to feel one with another that begins at birth that nurtures the full development of a human being for life.  It is the abuse of the meaning of the word love twisted around to mean the opposite, which is hate though disguised as love that the child will internalized that will become a perpetuating feeling of self-hate every time the child fails to suppress the 24/7 automatic and continuous functioning of his gay sexual orientation, which was never under his conscious control, like the heart beating and breathingPlease, tell me how a child of 4 and 5 years of age will be able to identify a "false prophet...in sheep's clothing" ?!?  In a honest and educated attempt to answer this question - one might begin understanding the immediacy for my "coming out" 20 years ago March 1997 - for the protection  of children and why I continue to advocate for their protection. 


A Tree and Its Fruit
Beware of false prophets, 
who come to you in sheep’s clothing but
 inwardly are ravenous wolves. 
You will know them by their fruits. 
Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? 
In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but 
the bad tree bears bad fruit. 
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, 
nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 
Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and 
thrown into the fire.
 Thus you will know them by their fruits.
Matthew 7:15-20



The ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices are not “innate” they do not come from God. Societal antigay prejudices are not based on the science of sexual orientation and subsequently there has been no ongoing dialogue between science and religion on this subject. Therefore, societal antigay prejudices are not based in truth and without truth there is no love (Caritas in veritate, Pope Benedict XVI 2009). Societal antigay prejudices represent the breach in the dialogue between science and religion on the sexual orientation of homosexuality that “comes only at an enormous price to human development.” However, this gay dissociation that began in early childhood from consciously acknowledging anything that is remotely gay will become more severe and consuming at a tremendous amount of the gay teenagers time and energy. The gay child from early childhood has been forced to control, out of the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices, something that no one has any power to control. This is not love. This is not the parental empathic caring for the child, which requires tuning into the child’s individual needs and wants. This is a severely violent form of child abuse that is invisible and that has continually been normalized by the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices that is promoted and sanctioned the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy, except for Pope Francis. And once again, see a rise in the curia and hierarchy ruthless obsessive antigay crusade, beginning in our New Your City, with I am sorry to say the last minute notice been given by Cardinal Dolan to stop the "International Human Rights Art Festival.” This is not an act of love - this is the blatant Roman Catholic hierarchical meanness, BDSM behavior and the endorsement of the hysteria of the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices, the kind that were exploited by the Nazi that gave Hitler the dictatorship of Nazi Germany that led to the deaths of 70 million people by the end of WWII.

Truly, truly, I say to you, 
unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, 
it remains alone; but if it dies,
 it bears much fruit. 
He who loves his life loses it, and

where I am, there My servant will be also; 
if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.

Festival Moves Event After Church Objects to Gay-Themed Content
OCT. 13, 2017
A human rights arts festival scheduled to take place on Sunday in a Lower East Side church hall was scrambling for a new venue after top officials of the New York Archdiocese expressed last-minute concerns that performances dealing with gay and transgender issues were not in line with church teaching.
Organizers of the International Human Rights Art Festival put out a news release about the event at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church on Grand Street about a month ago. The festival included a comedy improvisation, “Thank You for Coming Out,” about revealing gay identity, and a series of original cabaret songs by Maybe Burke, a transgender artist and activist.
The actress Kathleen Turner was scheduled to headline the event. Then, on Thursday, the pastor of St. Mary’s contacted the festival’s organizers to say that church officials, including Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, the archbishop of New York, had expressed concern about the gay and transgender content of the show. Rather than remove the two pieces, the event’s producer, Tom Block, decided to pull the entire event from the church.
“We are a human rights arts festival,” Mr. Block said. “We are not going to abandon people.”
The dispute comes at a time when the Roman Catholic Church as a whole is attempting to be more welcoming to the gay and transgender community, following the lead of Pope Francis. But there is a lingering tension in the church that extending a hand of welcome might come across as an endorsement of homosexuality, against church teaching…

There is another possibility, in addition to the above, that is also valid, blackmail, which the Nazis used against people to force their obedience. The blackmail that the Nazis used was also the exploitation of the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices, in their secret investigations into the lives of prominent people to accuse them of being homosexuals, or sexual affairs - as a means of control, banking on the public antigay hysteria against homosexuals to intimidate these leaders into submission. 


‘Vatican Closeted Gay Prelates’
 Being Blackmailed by Outsiders



Papal resignation linked to inquiry into 'Vatican gay officials', says paper
Friday 22 February 2013
A potentially explosive report has linked the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI to the discovery of a network of gay prelates in the Vatican, some of whom – the report said – were being blackmailed by outsiders…
The paper said the pope had taken the decision on 17 December that he was going to resign – the day he received a dossier compiled by three cardinals delegated to look into the so-called "Vatileaks" affair.
Last May Pope Benedict's butler, Paolo Gabriele, was arrested and charged with having stolen and leaked papal correspondence that depicted the Vatican as a seething hotbed of intrigue and infighting.
The newspaper said the cardinals described a number of factions, including one whose members were "united by sexual orientation".
In an apparent quotation from the report, La Repubblica said some Vatican officials had been subject to "external influence" from laymen with whom they had links of a "worldly nature". The paper said this was a clear reference to blackmail.
It quoted a source "very close to those who wrote [the cardinal's report]" as saying: "Everything revolves around the non-observance of the sixth and seventh commandments.”…
La Repubblica said the cardinals' report identified a series of meeting places in and around Rome. They included a villa outside the Italian capital, a sauna in a Rome suburb, a beauty parlour in the centre, and a former university residence that was in use by a provincial Italian archbishop…
Pope Benedict has said he will stand down at the end of this month;…Since announcing his departure he has twice apparently referred to machinations inside the Vatican, saying that divisions "mar the face of the church", and warned against "the temptations of power”.
La Repubblica's report was the latest in a string of claims that a gay network exists in the Vatican. In 2007 a senior official was suspended from the congregation, or department, for the priesthood, after he was filmed in a "sting" organised by an Italian television programme while apparently making sexual overtures to a younger man.
In 2010 a chorister was dismissed for allegedly procuring male prostitutes for a papal gentleman-in-waiting. A few months later a weekly news magazine used hidden cameras to record priests visiting gay clubs and bars and having sex…

Between World Wars, Gay Culture Flourished In Berlin
December 17, 2014
In Gay Berlin, Robert Beachy describes the rise of a gay subculture in the 1920s and '30s, how it contributed to our understanding of gay identity and how it was eradicated by the Nazis.
GROSS: Something really unusual about how this law was enforced was that a department called the Department of Blackmail and Homosexuality was created to enforce the law. Where did the blackmail come into this department?
BEACHY: Yeah, that's such an odd formulation, and it seems incongruous, maybe. But, in fact, because of the character of the law, blackmail was one of the, you could say, side effects. It was something that made anybody who was suspected of breaking the law vulnerable to. So especially a male prostitute, or maybe a spurned lover, might then threaten to expose someone if not given a certain amount of money or maybe, you know, other kinds of gifts. And so blackmail became a huge problem.
And the same police commissioner and then his successors and really the entire police department, recognized that the bigger problem was not homosexual conduct, but the way in which the law itself actually allowed for the practice of blackmail. So this is really how the department, then, ended up being created with this strange name. And the two, then, were always closely linked.
GROSS: I think a lot of the people that the Department of Blackmail and Homosexuality went after were prostitutes because the department, though I interpreted, didn't really want to go after, like, the middle class. And the assumption, too, I think, was that prostitutes who make money in the sex trade were also willing to make money through blackmailing the people they were - who were paying them to have sex.
But that leads to, like, a whole other chapter in the story, which was that there was a lot of prostitution, male prostitutes, in gay Berlin at the time. So let's just address, first, how prostitutes were mostly the people who were prosecuted, if I understand correctly, in the blackmail part of the Department of Blackmail and Homosexuality?
BEACHY: Yeah, that's absolutely accurate. Especially by the beginning of the 20th century, there seemed to be something like a scourge of blackmail. It was almost like a plague, and there were so many cases that there was, really increasingly, a kind of a formal campaign against it. So when these cases would come to trial, the blackmailers, the male prostitutes, tended to receive much heavier sentences than their victims, even if their victims were also convicted under the anti-sodomy statute. So the blackmail was considered, by far, the worst crime.
GROSS: So what was the place of prostitutes in gay Berlin?
BEACHY: You know, first of all, maybe it's important to try to account for this male prostitution. And one of the ways in which people have explained this is just to talk about Berlin as a military city or a garrison city. So there had always been a lot of Prussian soldiers, ever since the 18th century, since the 17th century, who were stationed there or who had posts there, who lived there in barracks. And soldier prostitution was considered an age-old phenomenon. Soldiers were, in some respects, at the very bottom of any kind of social pecking order. They were badly treated, badly paid. And one of the ways that they could make a little bit of pocket money was simply to sell themselves for sex…

‘Gay Berlin,’ by Robert Beachy
OCT. 31, 2014
…Robert Beachy’s excellent and richly documented new book, “Gay Berlin: Birthplace of a Modern Identity,” merely touches on these horrors. Instead, he takes the reader to the other end of the spectrum of opinion — that homosexuality is and has always been a sexual orientation fixed from birth, that same-sex love is as normal as heterosexuality, a condition not amenable to treatment but rather an endowment of nature that should be respected as part of a person’s identity…
The significance of Beachy’s book goes beyond his findings on the German roots of the conclusion that homosexuality is a biologically fixed trait. Beachy’s work must also be considered in the larger context of a shift in cultural studies. Both the Wilhelmine and Weimar periods are no longer seen — as they were in the early post-1945 decades — as an autocratic divergence from the Western liberal-­democratic model of political and sociocultural development that culminated in Nazism. Notwithstanding many elements of a traditional authoritarianism, Weimar was a modern society, one that France, Britain and the United States could in some ways be seen as lagging behind. Rather than viewing the 1920s as a period that led inevitably to the Nazi dictatorship, many historians now study the contradictions of Weimar modernity, with Berlin seen as a major center of political, socioeconomic and cultural diversity…

In either case, there is no love in the twisted use of the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices for selfish gain. Allowing the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices to exist unchallenged by truth or giving into them only increases their power and the violent destruction of millions of people, including children. "...unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit." There comes a time, when we must face the truth, the truth about ourselves and stand up for it - out of love. This is what it means to lose our lives for Christ. No, it is not easy. It is never easy. But strangely God helps us along this way, even when it seems we are alone. Ask Pope Francis for more details in this regard, it appears he has been a veteran many times over on this road, untwisting the abused meaning of the word love, by finding truth and backing it by his example.

Pope overhauls key institute to reflect his vision of family
September 19, 2017
Theological Institute for the Marriage and Family Sciences
ROME (AP) — Pope Francis has overhauled the Vatican institute most closely associated with the conservative sexual morals promoted by St. John Paul II, saying it was necessary to adapt and expand its mission to address the reality of today's Catholics.
Officials said Tuesday the revamped John Paul II Theological Institute for the Marriage and Family Sciences will offer degrees in the social sciences — such as sociologyanthropologypsychology — as well as biology and other sciences, reflecting a vision of the family that goes well beyond strict Catholic theology.
The new mission takes its inspirational cues from the vision of marriage and family life contained in Francis' controversial 2016 document "The Joy of Love."
That document called for the church to accompany even those Catholics living in "imperfect" family situations such as divorce and cohabitation, confirming Francis' vision of the church as more of a "field hospital" for wounded souls than a privileged home for the perfect…
Its new mission statement says the church, while remaining faithful to Christ's teaching, must look "with the understanding of love and wise realism, to the reality of families today in all their complexities, in their light and shadows."
The inclusion of biological sciences in the curriculum, and a mission statement that cites a focus on human "regeneration" and care for the planet, suggests that the revamped institute will address human sexuality, the environment and the church's position on artificial contraception…

However, out of the pervasive fear of parental abandonment - the gay child will earnestly attempt to suppress his gay sexual orientation (interrelated biological (physical) and psychological (emotional) processes), the gay child’s sexual orientation will continue to function automatically and continuously. The gay child’s sexual orientation will continue to function 24/7 and the sexual impulses will grow stronger as the child reaches puberty, in the same way that it happens for a heterosexual child. 

This gay child is powerless to suppress the functioning of his gay sexual orientation impulses, which . This gay child will begin to internalize the ignorance and fear of the societal antigay prejudices of his parents that was manifested in the social environment, in which his parents were raised. Every time this gay child, as a teenager begins experiencing being emotionally and physically sexually aroused by his male classmates, he will endlessly feel the guilt and shame of the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices. This gay child was forced to wrongly believe that he has the power to stop feeling the emotional and physical sexual arousal of other male classmates, which he can no more stop than he stop himself from breathing. 

Even if we attempt to hold our breaths till we turn-blue-in-the-face our bodies will override our efforts and force us to begin breathing again (http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/spells.html). 

Turn blue while holding your breath
When the oxygen levels in our blood drop, that blood turns a darker shade of red. Now, if you hold your breath long enough so that the oxygen level in your blood drops to about 80 percent of what it normally is, you’d start looking bluish. This is due to the way our tissues absorb and reflect back light.
Obviously, you can’t hold your breath long enough for your oxygen levels to drop to the required level. You’d pass out long before the oxygen level in your blood dropped low enough to make you turn blue. And at that point, you’d automatically start breathing again… http://indianapublicmedia.org/amomentofscience/why-it-isnt-easy-being-blue/  

Interesting to note that the same is true in regards to our attempts to permanently suppress our sexual orientation from functioning. In a way,  we lose consciousness through our mental dissociation from our gay sexual orientation, but regardless our sexual orientation will continue to function automatically, never missing a beat. Again, the continuous automatic functioning of our sexual orientation, regardless how dissociated a person may be from accepting the truth about his gay sexual orientation - was proven by the research study 2012, at Cornell University, "The Eyes Have It: Sex and Sexual Orientation Differences in Pupil Dilation Patterns." So, no matter how severely dissociated a gay person may be about the truth if his gay sexual orientation, his body will become sexually aroused whenever he sees or thinks about an attractive male person or persons. It is important to realize that these physical and emotional aspects of a gay sexual orientation remain unidentified, unverbalized and undifferentiated by a dissociated gay individual, which are experienced as vague and confusing.



Therefore, a dissociated state of mind about one's gay sexual orientation will be expressed in any number of disguised and distorted ways, which are referred to as “acting out.” This form of dissociation of acting out sexually - can be extremely dangerous for the individual, as well as others. The dissociated gay individual can be overwhelmed by his unacknowledged and therefore unmodulated physical and emotional aspects of being sexually aroused over someone that can lead to his blindly acting out, in some of the most embarrassing and even inappropriate ways, such as becoming quite furiously when he feels rejected. But in many ways he is acting out a fantasy of his making - not in touch with reality and then becoming furious over a figment of his imagination, when he feels rejected by someone he had strong dissociated sexual feelings for, though unbeknown by the other person. 


Theories of Personality
Jess Feist and Gregory J Feist
Part II -  Psychodynamic Theories
P r o j e c t i o n
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)….
An extreme type of projection is paranoia, a mental disorder characterized by powerfudelusions of jealousy and persecution. Paranoia is not an inevitable outcome of projection but simply a severe variety of it. 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 [or a brother], although sometimes people may transfer their delusions onto a person of the opposite sex. When homosexual impulses become too powerful, persecuted paranoiacs defend themselves by reversing these feelings and then projecting them onto their original object [the former friend of the same sex (or brother)]. 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… 


This severely complex delusional behavioral acting out can create long-lasting unfortunate consequences that never need have happened, if the gay person had never was forced to suppress his gay sexual orientation in early childhood. And who is responsible for these most tragic situations and worst??? Who is promoting and who is profiting the most by maintaining - the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices by suppressing the science on homosexuality?  

And although, the gay person may be dissociated from the reality of his sexual orientation, his behavioral acting out episodes or escapades are easily identifiable to others, as being gay oriented. Photos, Part 2

Acting out is a psychological term from the parlance of defense mechanisms and self-control, meaning to perform an action in contrast to bearing and managing the impulse to perform it. The acting done is usually anti-social and may take the form of acting on the impulses of an addiction (e.g. drinking, drug taking or shoplifting) or in a means designed (often unconsciously or semi-consciously) to garner attention (e.g. throwing a tantrum or behaving promiscuously).
In general usage, the action performed is destructive to self or others and may inhibit the development of more constructive responses to the feelings in question. The term is used in this way in sexual addiction treatment, psychotherapy, criminology and parenting…

This induced lost of consciousness of one’s gay sexual orientation has been, again, never been more visibly demonstrated than by any other group in the world as it has been by the majority of the members of the Roman Catholic curia and hierarchy, especially in Europe and in the United States. They have become infamous: 1. by their obsessive antigay crusade of silencing and removing theologians, priests, sisters, etc. that has lasted continuously for the past several decades - entirely unsupported of any science on homosexuality and 2. by their endless closeted gay sexual acting out escapades. We have observed the same dissociated gay sexual acing out behaviors among politicians and the religious leaders, who are extremely publicly antigay and are found having anonymous gay sex in public restrooms, or procuring male prostitutes, or arranging to travel with a paid gay escort.

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


We are witnessing the innocent beauty of the attachment of an infant bonding with his parents. Then we will observe the blossoming of innocent adolescence first love. Sadly, we then observed the devastating contrast of the lifelong harmful effects caused when that nurturing bond between the infant and parental empathic caring is broken. We can see the lifelong deteriorating effects that Rene Spitz discovered that happens when an infant suffers the lethal effects caused by the lack of love. We can see how the traumatic event that happens in early childhood - the mutilation of a child’s spirit occurs when a gay child is subjected to the influence of the ignorance and fear of societal antigay prejudices that turns out gay children to be emotionally crippled and obsessively antigay consumed like the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy. And thus they needlessly become exploitable bait for to be blackmailed by far less scrupulous individuals for selfish gain. It sends these closeted gay prelates forever looking for love in all the wrong places. 

Austrian psychoanalyst and physician 
Rene Spitz proposed…that infants in institutions suffered from 
lack of love–that they were missing 
important parental relationships, 
which in turn was hurting or 
even killing them.

Emotional & Neglect Child Abuse 
Photo & more 
The priorities are twisted around. Yes, children in the digital world need to be protected. However, turning to external forces to prevent this harm to children without tackling the internal forces of the curia’s and hierarchy's ignorance of the science of homosexuality for the past 60 years and their pervasive dissociated homophobia still leaves children unprotected in the digital world. In addition - it helps to fuel the hysteria of the ignorance of societal antigay prejudges that greatly contributes to the harm to children. By example - it teaches people the are of projection - how not to remove the plank in one’s own eye before removing the speck in our brother’s eye (Matthew 7:5). ”Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection). Though this is not true of Pope Francis, he has consistently championed the need to dialogue the issues of gay people and assigned Fr. James Martin to help begin this dialogue. However, Pope Francis has not been supported in this endeavor by the majority of the curia and hierarchy. 


When you experience bitterness, put your faith in all those who still work for good: in their humility lies the seed of a new world. Pope Francis 

Pope Francis at Mass in Santa Marta: rediscover your roots
05/10/2017
….Pope Francis said. “Without roots,” he continued, “we cannot live: a people without roots or at risk of losing roots, is a sick people”:
“A person without roots, who has forgotten his roots, is sick. Finding, rediscovering their roots and taking the strength to go forward, the strength to flourish and, as the poet says, ‘the power to flourish because – he says – what the tree has borne in fruit comes from what he has buried.’ Just that relationship between the root and the good we can do.”
Along this journey of recovery, however, the Pope noted, there has been “so much resistance”:
“Resistance comes from those who prefer exile, and when there is no physical exile, psychological exile: self-exile from the community, from society, from those who prefer to be uprooted people, without roots. We must think of this psychological self-exile as a disease: it does so much harm. It takes away the roots. It takes away our belonging.”…

The curia and hierarchy had been thickly insulated by societal antigay prejudges, including having been raised above being human - who can to do no wrong - this is blasphemy there is only one God. Because of their ignorance of the science of homosexuality for the past 60 years and their pervasive cruel treatment of gay people - goes un-challenged and unchecked - their violence has been “normalized” as "just the way things are.” In the immediacy of protecting children - in explaining and in visually illustrating the psychological developmental harm caused to the members of the curia and hierarchy and he harm they continue to inflict on others (BDSM) with no juridical oversight - I have used some provocative images of men partially nude no more harmless than Michelangelo’s statue of David. These images serve another purpose as well - in observing their and people's reactions to the images - tells everything about their sexual orientation, including societal reactions. 











What you cannot do is accept injustice.
From Hitler – or anyone.
You must make the injustice visible
– be prepared to die like a
 soldier to do so.
Mahatma Gandh


The contrast between Pope Francis and the “curia and hierarchy” is made more visible - it is more clearly defined using these provocative images. These provocative images - helps to make the invisibility and the acceptability of this cruel and insidious form of structural violence child abuse caused to children by the influence of unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms (societal antigay prejudices). They make visible how destructive the lifelong harmful effects that is caused by this invisible and normalized form of child abuse is not only played out in their adult lives, but how they are inflicted the same onto other children by their adult BDSM treatment of gay people. 

For verification of these facts - check out the internal and external (international relationships) stability of the countries that permit public displays of lethal violence against gay people i.e. throwing off gay people off the rooftops of 10 story buildings to their deaths. These antigay countries are destroying the development of human empathy and are nurturing the development of hatred and the continual misery and unproductive lives of their people. 

How unfortunate that the organizational culture of the curia of the Vatican mirrors the hostilities of these antigay countries both internally and externally (international relationships) in regards to their instability because they like these antigay countries have permitted public displays though in the form of structure violence the roots of lethal violence against gay people, in particular gay priests. Their unwarranted mistreatment of gay people is done - in the name of an arbitrary form of love, which is a twisted form of hatred, because they like these antigay countries have no consideration of the science on homosexuality. Therefore, instead of the Vatican’s curia and the hierarchy representing a model of a social environment of the Church - they represent a twisted form of love that in reality is the opposite and no one seems to care about this form of hypocrisy that is excepted for Pope Francis. 


Pope Francis: a Curia that is outdated, sclerotic or indifferent to others is an ailing body 
Dec. 22, 2014
  …“It is good to think of the Roman Curia as a small model of the Church, that is, a body that seeks, seriously and on a daily basis, to be more alive, healthier, more harmonious and more united in itself and with Christ”…
    ...The sickness of “chatter, grumbling and gossip: this is a serious illness that begins simply, often just in the form of having a chat, and takes people over, turning them into sowers of discord, like Satan, and in many cases cold-blooded murderers of the reputations of their colleagues and brethren. It is the sickness of the cowardly who, not having the courage to speak directly to the people involved, instead speak behind their backs”...

Early Childhood - Victimized & Powerless 
I D E N T I F Y I N G   
with the 
Vatican as a BDSM abuser
P e r p e t u a t i n g 
Same Childhood Abuse

The curia and hierarchy - as adult victims of this form of child abuse to escape the victimization of feeling powerless as children during this abuse - they become extremely ridge and orthodox without empathy in the same way they experienced being abused as children and identify with the aggressiveness of their abusers be they an abusive parent or religion or the Vatican. The majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy who are extremely antigay are unconsciously identifying with the Vatican as a BDSM abuser. They made the BDSM Vatican abuser into a god they worship that is completely void of empathy. Yes, this twisted thinking - but twisted thinking that they were forcefully subjected to in the social environments that had been saturated with societal antigay prejudices, which they were raised in and victimized by. The essence of societal antigay prejudges is a void of truth, because of the absence of science on homosexuality and therefore it is void of love that then has been twisted around to mean the opposite - hatred - and erroneously believed and called it LOVE! 

Pope Francis comes in from Argentina - a social environment completely void of any extreme societal antigay prejudices experienced by the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy and he tears down this false BDSM image of the Vatican because it makes no sense to him. Pope Francis has no need to identify with any aggressive abuser to that extreme degree. He has been untwisting this false perception and violence that was erroneously made into pseudo-doctrine of the Church and humbly as a sinner on the move (as he sees himself) relentlessly is restoring the love Christ not as he sees it but as the diversity of the Church sees it from all around the world - from input from every human being - no one is excluded. Pope Francis is restoring the true meaning of Catholic - universal - everyone. 


Who Is to Blame for 
the Dissociated Homosexuals Curia and Hierarchy?


Who is to blame for this horrendous global destruction? The majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy were very young children growing up during their early childhood psychological developmental years - in social environments saturated with extremely unsubstantiated societal antigay prejudices. How can they be blamed? We are aware of the mental dissociation of being gay that takes place beginning in early childhood after being forced out traumatizing fear of parental abandonment - to suppress their gay sexual orientation that this form of dissociation is formed and can last throughout a lifetime. It is extremely destructive to not only the person but to society as well. 








Emotional Abuse
Break the Cycle—rather than perpetuate it.
The cruelties of structural violence on children are often subtle, unspoken, unrecognized, and even normalized, regarded by many people as natural or “just the way things are (http://u.osu.edu/christie/files/2014/10/Chapter-10-Children-Structural-Violence-Schwebel-Christie-2jjgq7s.pdf).” 

It causes the child to dissociate from any awareness or understanding of his gay sexual orientation. This means that as the child continues to  mature and enters into his adolescent years (13 to 19 years old) that like all adolescents he will begin for the first time to experience of a flood of new sexual sensations. However, these powerful feelings of being sexually aroused, will not be identified, as such by this gay adolescent. This is because from early childhood - out of traumatic fear - as a child, he has been coerced into accepting the unfounded and perverted belief that anything gay is evil. Even though the child, at that age, has absolutely no conceptual understanding of the adult's perception of what gay means. The child will only mirror the adult’s ignorance and fear of gay people. Driven by childhood traumatizing fear and hysteria of being abandoned by his parents the child - for the sake of survival that child will learned how to automatically dissociated from anything that is even remotely perceived as gay, such:

Hiding activities learned in childhood often persist into young adulthood, middle age and even senescence, leading many gay people to conceal important aspects of themselves.
Closeted individuals frequently cannot acknowledge to themselves, let alone to others, their homoerotic feelings, attractions and fantasies. Their homosexuality is so unacceptable that it must be kept out of conscious awareness and cannot be integrated into their public persona. Consequently, these feelings must be d i s s o c i a t e d from the self and 
h i d d e n from others…

The Closet: Psychological Issues of Being In and Coming Out 




Parental Autonomy Support and Discrepancies Between Implicit and Explicit Sexual Identities: Dynamics of Self-Acceptance and Defense - 2012 
When individuals grow up with autonomy-thwarting parents, they may be prevented from exploring internally endorsed values and identities and as a result shut out aspects of the self perceived to be unacceptable. Given the stigmatization of homosexuality, individuals perceiving low autonomy support from parents may be especially motivated to conceal same-sex sexual attraction, leading to defensive processes such as reaction formation… 
…Psychodynamic traditions hold that people have a preferred view of themselves, which may not reflect reality. When this idealized view is threatened by contradictory thoughts or feelings, people engage in one or more unconscious processes to defend against the threat to self. Among defensive processes that have been recognized as having some empirical support is reaction formation, a process indicated in the modern body of research on self-esteem preservation (e.g., Baumeister, Dale, & Sommer, 1998). Reaction formation refers to the process of adopting values or beliefs, or engaging in behaviors, that are in opposition to feelings or impulses experienced within oneself that are deemed unacceptable. Empirical work has shown reaction formation processes with respect to sexism (Sherman & Garkin, 1980), sex guilt (Morokoff, 1985), and prejudice (Dutton & Lake, 1973), indicating that individuals sometimes defend against self-relevant, threatening information by engaging in opposing behaviors… 


















Who is to Blame 
for Dissociation of Gay Teenagers?


Being dissociated from the reality of being a gay person from early childhood is extremely dangerous, especially during adolescence years of childhood development. It is a time when a child begins experiencing the maturation of his or her sexual development of mind and body. It is a time of great confusion experiencing an explosion of new sexual sensations never experienced before. It can be even overwhelming for some. It is a time hard enough for heterosexual children turning into teenagers in social environments that are strongly supportive of heterosexual relationships, ubiquitously appearing everywhere in all forms of media. This time is even more extreme for a dissociated gay child turning into a teenager - homosexual relationships are not ubiquitously seen everywhere and even less and less 30, 40, 50 years into the past. 

A gay child turing into a teenager is doing so without a clue of being gay or what it means to be gay, because being gay is unconsciously abhorrent to the child in a dissociated state of mind. The reason for this dissociated state of mind is because he was forced to suppress any outward expressions of being gay beginning in early childhood years and this has remained constant since that time. The gay child will vigilantly repressed any expression that is upsetting to the parents. The child truly wants to be loved and be thought as a good child by his parents and by God. But the child is being forced to suppress something "his gay sexual orientation" that the child nor anyone can ever suppressed. This will be explain more fully below in describing the science of homosexuality, 

And at the time that this suppression took place would have been traumatic for the child, which means that these memories would have almost automatically been repressed into the unconscious mind. The child would likely grow up feeling asexual having no sexual feelings. Although, he would still have sexual feelings but these feelings would not be consciously acknowledged as such. This is a dangerous state of mind that a child was forced into, because as this child grows into the developmental stage of adolescence he will be unaware when he is acting out his sexual feelings in a number of harmless ways that often end up being exceedingly embarrassing for him, if and when he realizes the reality of his gay sexual orientation.

However, entering the teenage years, ages of 13 to 20 years old, these sexual feelings would naturally become more pronounced though even then the teenagers will still not acknowledge these as gay sexual feelings. But these sexual feelings will still continuously struggle 24/7 to be expressedThis is true about the adolescence developmental  aspects of sexual orientation for heterosexuals as well as, for homosexuals. During adolescence, a turbulent developmental stage of the maturation of human sexuality can be overwhelming for any teenagers. It is even more turbulent for a gay adolescent, because he can be in a severe dissociation state of mind, which means he has been suppressing all sexual feelings since early childhood. In addition, there are no public images of gay couples, as there are of straight couples that tends to dominate all forms of media. The gay adolescence, grows up in a social isolation, most especially true in past decades.  











He is likely to act out dissociatively in a number of different ways and still not acknowledge that he is gay. For example, as it often happens - he can be in a dissociative state of mind, and be strongly attached to another straight teenager and they can be understood as just good friends. However, the reality is that for the gay teenager this friendship would be more of a camouflage for romantic relationship, a relationship similar the way that a heterosexual teenager has with a girlfriend. If the truth of this gay dissociation was made known to this gay teenager - he would likely be devastated with shame and be wallowing in painful humiliation, so thick was the gay teenager's wall of dissociation.













Gay Midadolescence stories about their first loves
The Overstimulation of Everyday Life: 
I. New Aspects of Male Homosexuality
Sidney H. Phillips, M.D., 2002

Dr. Phillips views homosexuality as a normal process of the variations of human sexuality. He has found as other researchers in this area have found that men in their twenties and early thirties who are openly gay report histories of remembering as early as 4 and 5 years of age and older being attracted to other boys and men. These men report that in their midadolescence stories about their first loves, which they remember in “rich detail” and these stories obtained were “remarkably similar.”

They fell “head over heels” in love with a heterosexual boy. These sexually unconsummated love affairs went on for many months. The homosexual boy had to overcome some reluctance on the heterosexual boy’s part to permit greater and greater physical intimacy, especially sleeping in the same bed together. The heterosexual boy’s reservations were invariably overcome by the homosexual boy’s ingenious rationalizations and energetic persistence.
What was striking in all these stories was how both participants attended to and would not cross what seemed like a carefully constructed boundary against erotic behavior or dialogue. As long as all proceeded under the “innocent,” permissive guise of, mutual, close friendship, the relationships continued. These strange love affairs between homosexual and heterosexual adolescent boys predictably all ended the same way: the heterosexual boy eventually turned his attentions to a heterosexual girl…

The Overstimulation of Everyday Life: 
I. New Aspects of Male Homosexuality
Sidney H. Phillips, M.D., 2002
Ann Psychoanal 30:131-45
Abstract
Western heterosexual culture surrounds the homosexually inclined boy in a climate of erotic overstimulation that powerfully affects his development and adult sexual adaptation. This assertion is illustrated through a case presentation of a homosexual man who shared a bed with his brother from childhood into adolescence. Analysis of the patient's transference enactment—repeatedly falling asleep on the couch—gradually revealed the psychic impact of this everyday overstimulation: the creation of a tantalized inner world of longing. The regular occurrence and developmental understanding of adolescent homosexual boysunrequited love affairs with adolescent heterosexual boys are described and explored. Finally, the overstimulation of everyday life is proposed as a new model for understanding certain behavioral aspects of male homosexuality, such as the avoidance of rough-and-tumble play in childhood and homosexual cruising.

"Homosexuality: coming out of the confusion”
Sidney H. Phillips, M.D. - Int J Psychoanal

Sidney H. Phillips, M.D., is a training and supervising analyst of the Western New England Institute for Psychoanalysis; Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine.

In this paper, Dr. Phillips describes the complications of how the historical context of social norms can significantly influence the classification of the components of homosexuality by clinicians causing them to be blind to their own biases. Mindful of our susceptibility to this kind of phenomenon, Dr. Phillips calls to task these biases that pathologize homosexuality simply because it is not consistent with heterosexuality and therefore to be classified as a mental disorder. He offers an alternative description of homosexuality from his clinical research that is consistent with other researchers of early childhood psychological development of children who grow up to be gay.

When homosexuality is understood as a natural developmental process of human sexuality, what happens to the children who grow up to be gay? These children are often subjected to a kind of continuous harm that can be considered torturous being raised in a world where heterosexuality is considered the only accepted norm. A psychological harm is inflicted on these children throughout their early childhood developmental years that have lasting effects throughout their adult years having been raised in a social environment influenced by harsh antigay social and religious norms…

The dissociated state of mind of gay teenager may be so great that acting out sexually is often acted out in subtle ways again in ways that are camouflage passing it off as just playing around or just fun wrestling. This type of a gay teenager sexually acting out is never - an overt form of sexual behavior, because the dissociated gay teenager does not have any conceptual understanding of adult sexuality. The dissociation of the gay teenager also would not allow any overt form of sexual behavior, because any overt sexual behavior would have to break through the wall of dissociation and that would be exceedingly disorienting for the teenagers completely destroying the thin layer of self esteem that he has. This is the reason why the closeted gay acting out escapades of curia and hierarchy at the Vatican have to be heavily intoxicated with drugs i.e., cocaine before they are able they can engage in any overt form of sexual acting out behavior. They never really personally connect to any of their sexual partners. This is also because the suppression of child’s gay sexual orientation is a traumatizing form an unidentified form of child abuse. Children who have been sexually abused often have sexual problems, as an adult.

Excerpts:
ROBERT MICKENS, Vatican Correspondent, The Tablet: I came here when I was a seminarian in 1986. And I remember I had this very wide-eyed idea of the Vatican, of these holy cardinals and holy men. And I was shocked within a matter of weeks, months, at the careerism, at the sexual innuendo, the— just the whole kind of non-holy life I hadn't expected.
VATICAN GUIDE: [through interpreter] A large part of the hierarchy is homosexual. Certainly, at the top levels of the church, in the Curia, and many important people, such as bishops and archbishops, are gay.
NARRATOR: He's a Vatican guide who says he's had relationships with several priests.
VATICAN GUIDE: [through interpreter] Here in Rome, it's very easy to meet a gay priest, on a bus, in a church, and important churches like St. Peter's. It's even easier when you go to gay clubs and gay bars. You see them in the bars, and then at the altar the following Sunday…

The Vatican’s Swiss Guards Break Up a Drug-Fueled Gay Orgy in Pope Francis’ Backyard 
July 7, 2017
ROME—It all started with the usual complaints from disgruntled neighbors: funny smells, slamming doors, loud music, the sound of squeaky beds and laughter late into the night. In almost any other situation anywhere in the world, the angry neighbors would have confronted the noisy tenant, maybe left a mean note on the door or complained to the landlord and the matter would be settled. 
But this particular dispute occurred in one of the most prestigious addresses in Rome, the so-called Ex Sant’Uffizio Palace, in the very apartment owned by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith where Joseph Ratzinger lived for decades before becoming Pope Benedict XVI. The palatial ochre-colored building is home to dozens of high-ranking cardinals who live within walking distance of their jobs at the Roman Curia in Vatican City next door.
The fed-up neighbors were simply sick of what they described as a “steady stream of young men” who frequented Ratzinger’s former apartment, which had been given to Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, the secretary for Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, who heads the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, which busies itself with deciphering and clarifying various points of canon law. So they called the cops, in this case the Vatican’s elite Swiss Guard gendarmerie unit, when the noise and movida nightlife just got to be too much.
The Vatican police showed up to find an orgy in progress, with an untold number of naked men allegedly writhing around the floor with Capozzi and his cohorts, who were apparently under the influence of hard drugs according to the Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano which broke the story that a host of Italian and international media have since picked up…

And on an occasion a gay teenager in a dissociated state of mind - may acted out to a small degree sexually, again not overt sexual behavior, with another gay teenager who also is in a dissociated state of mind and not be cognizant that it was in a way sexual - rather passing it off as playing around. To be mentally dissociated from any thought of being gay is also a dissociation of all things sexual some more than others. This means that these dissociated teenagers gay sexual feelings are likely, to be express in harmless but in an inappropriate way. They will not be consciously and willfully acted out sexually and never in an adult form of sexuality, because the teenagers will not have any conceptual understanding of adult sexuality. 

This changes the psychological dynamics due to the ages of the teenagers involved it is not the same as the psychological dynamics of an adult who continually abuses minors. This is definitely NOT a series of acting out with multiple teenagers, as an adult pedophile, who cannot control himself. This form of acting out among teenagers is more of a one-time experimental acting out sexually that will happen but in a dissociated state of mind, which means they are likely to be express in harmless but in inappropriate ways. They will not be willfully acted out sexually, and not in any adult form of sexuality, because the teenagers will not have any conceptual understanding of adult sexuality. It happened in a dissociated state of mind that otherwise would not have taken place. Even though, it is not an uncommon occurrence that happens among heterosexual teenagers. It is another form of an antigay societal bias to attack a gay adolescent and to irrationally though hysterically connecting it to pedophilia, which there is absolutely no connection to be made. This is the fierce violence of societal antigay prejudges that are continually supported and fed by the curia’s and the hierarchy’s ignorance of the science on homosexuality. This is definitely NOT a series of acting out with multiple partners as an adult pedophile, who cannot control himself and has abused multiple victims. An adult pedophile is not acting out in a dissociated state of mind, because the adult pedophile is not gay. Therefore, an adult pedophile, as a child not being gay would never have been traumatized by being forced to suppress his gay sexual orientation. Therefore, he would not be in a dissociated state of mind.

Pope Francis once again “distinguished sharply between homosexuality and sexual abuse of children, which he has labeled as criminal behavior,” in his address to the members of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors gathered for their Plenary Assembly. He stated that "Pedophilia is a sickness."










Pope Francis acknowledges Catholic Church’s bad practices during the sex abuse crisis
September 21, 2017
ROME — Pope Francis acknowledged that the Catholic Church was slow to address the sex abuse crisis, including its widely criticized but not publicly acknowledged practice of moving priests who had abused children to other churches instead of reporting them to the police, saying “the church’s conscience came a bit late.”
The pope gave off-the-cuff remarks to a commission he created to tackle the issue, acknowledging the slow pace of church trials and an overall lack of awareness of the problem inside St. Peter’s walls.
Pedophilia is a sickness,” Pope Francis said. “Today one repents, moves on, we forgive him, then two years later he relapses. We need to get it in our heads that it’s a sickness.”
The pope announced he would do away with Vatican appeal trials for cases where evidence of abuse against minors is proven. “If there’s evidence, that is final,” he said.
Those who’re sentenced because of sexual abuses against minors can indeed appeal to the pope and ask for a pardon, but I’ve never signed one of those, and I never will,” he said. “I hope this much is clear.
The pope’s rationale for doing away with an appeal process — according to Italian news outlets’ transcripts of his words — lies in his own experience. Faced with such a case at the very beginning of his papacy, he said he’d opted for “the more benevolent path” instead of defrocking a priest. “After two years, though, the priest relapsed,” he said, which became a learning experience for the pope.
A well-placed Vatican source confirms that these words convey the pope’s own “personal bitterness, as well as the difficulty of curing [pedophiles], as it was once thought possible, which instead ended up being quite a failure.”…
“I suppose [Pope Francis is] stating what is obvious,” Collins said. Since the beginning of his papacy, Francis has spoken of the horrors of abuse and spoken to survivors of abuse, asking for forgiveness several times.
However, Collins believes this may be the first time the pope has addressed how the church handles priests. Some bishops would move priests accused of abusing children to other churches, allowing them to continue their abuse.
“We’re getting an admission of problems that were there,” she said. “The less denial there is, the more chance there is for change.”…

Had this same gay teenager been raised in an open and accepting social environment of gay people, absence of any societal antigay prejudges - this gay child would had grown-up being accepting his own gay sexual orientation and the child throughout his development years would have had a acquired a better understanding of his sexual feelings. And the gay child like a heterosexual child would learn that even though he will have sexual feelings, he would have been told that sexuality is meant for marriage. The child will learn through his developmental years that he had to control his sexual feelings until he met someone he falls in love with and got married. The gay child like the heterosexual child would have been taught how to manage his sexual feelings and to express them appropriately in life. 

However, a gay child who had been forced - traumatized to suppress any expression of a gay sexual orientation - would not be taught any ways to manage his sexual feelings and definitely if the child is Catholic he would never be told that his sexual feelings had to wait until he found someone he fell in love with and planned on marrying. This is tying the plastic bag that was placed over the child's head in early childhood and not giving the child any future hope of falling in love with someone this is tying this plastic bag more tightly around the child's neck. This is inhuman - this is also killing the development of empathy - and the first time that this gay child as a teenager blindly acts out sexually in a very limited form - he is published for life. This is invisiblenormalized child cruelty to the extreme. The ramifications of this inhuman act are more wide spread in endorsing approved violence around the world, by example. This is true both of the ignorance that prompted this atrocious treatment and the actual act of committing this atrocious deed. It has nothing to do with love. Before the respect of climate change or the digital protection of children - these atrocious deeds must be rectified and this would more likely open the door to restoring the development of empathy to help end the other two. 

Notice, as I explain below, how enormous global attention that Pope Francis received when he made the statement about gay priests July 2013 "Who am I to judge?" Was he reawakening empathy in the world by acknowledging the truth about gay people and thereby by extension was denouncing the mistreatment of gay people. Not to acknowledge this invisible cruel inhuman treatment of gay adolescents - is by extension is to condone this Vatican's sadistic and contemptuous actions to teenagers that leads to throwing people off the rooftops of 10 story buildings. 


It is instilling in the world - the approval of same BDSM behavior, by members of the curia and hierarchy who experienced the same BDSM behavior when they were teenagers. There are ample examples overflowing of the same form of dissociated closeted gay sexual acting out behaviors though in an adult form of sexuality - of the curia and hierarchy and like the public figures who openly condemn homosexuality, but are found having gay sex in public restrooms. 



















Who is to Blame 
for Dissociation of Gay Teenagers
Acting Out Sexually?


Who is the blame for this sexual acting out? Again, certainly not the adolescent teenagers who was forced out traumatizing fear in early childhood years to suppress his gay sexual orientation, at time when the child had no concept of what “gay” meant to an adult. The suppression of a child’s gay sexual orientation is the blame - it was a heinous form of child abuse. And then to blame him for his dissociative acting out event as a teenager is even more despicably heinous for something that was not his fault, in the first place. This teenager was being obedient to his parents forcing the suppression of any outward expression of being gay. His parents were only being obedient to the Vatican’s condemnation of homosexuality. This is NOT in the least any form of pedophilia. These were experimental events that are common in the same developmental stages of heterosexual teenagers. However, because heterosexuality is culturally the only accepted form of human relationships - when the same events happens with a homosexual teenagers - it is hysterically condemned, especially by the Vatican. Pope Francis in less than a few months of being elected to papacy March 2013, he publicly expressed profound respect for gay priests by extension to all gay people and at the same time he courageously made the sharp distinction between homosexuality and the criminal behavior of child abuse. 


On Gay Priests, Pope Francis Asks, ‘Who Am I to Judge?’ 
July 29, 2013
ROME — For generations, homosexuality has largely been a taboo topic for the Vatican, ignored altogether or treated as “an intrinsic moral evil,” in the words of the previous pope. 
In that context, brief remarks by Pope Francis suggesting that he would not judge priests for their sexual orientation, made aboard the papal airplane on the way back from his first foreign trip, to Brazil, resonated through the church. Never veering from church doctrine opposing homosexuality, Francis did strike a more compassionate tone than that of his predecessors, some of whom had largely avoided even saying the more colloquial “gay.” 
If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis told reporters, speaking in Italian but using the English word “gay.”…

Reflections on Pope Francis 
Is he a reformer, a traditionalist, or both? 
WINTER/SPRING 2014 
HARVARD DIVINITY SCHOOL
Catholicism and LGBT Communities 
Pope Francis's statements on gay priests and same-sex marriages have come under intense public scrutiny. In response to the question of why he had not removed Monsignor Battista Ricca, whom he had appointed to a supervisory group at the Vatican Bank, he affirmed his nonjudgmental affirmation of the person and his willingness to keep him in the position— despite allegations that Monsignor Ricca had a homosexual relationship in his past. He has distinguished sharply between homosexuality and sexual abuse of children, which he has labeled as criminal behavior. His response took people by surprise. On the one hand, it represents a very traditional position, distinguishing between a homosexual person and a homosexual act and maintaining that homosexuals, like heterosexuals, could aspire to the priesthood as long as they were celibate. On the other hand, his statement represents a stark change from recent attitudes…
Read more: 


Interesting to note that after Pope Francis made this statement in support of gay priests - it was instantly heard around the world. It was absolutely surprising he did not lose any respect for the papacy. What happened instead was the complete reverse - he received phenomenal respect by people all over the world, it seems especially by large numbers of non-catholics. Ever since, then we have heard a constant stream of people endlessly saying, "I am not Catholic, but I sure do like your pope." What does this mean? Did Pope Francis untwist the decades of the arbitrary twisted form of love espoused by the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy, which was really disguised hatred? Their twisted form of love was galvanized in layers of "groupthink" that is completely void of outside input. Again, this is showing the inability of the curia and hierarchy to connect empathically to anyone, however, this is not true of all members. 

Thank God, no matter how small there always seems to be an array of hope that is a reminder that there are members of the hierarchy who truly care about gay children and like Pope Francis are reaching out to help. These bishops and priests must not be forgotten, like Christ making changes to bring God's love to people and children never ever begins in a herd. It only begins in a single, but very powerful, flame of God's love in hearts and minds of small numbers of individual people - like Bishop John Dolan and Fr. Lucio Castillo. Thank you for your courageous faith and kindness to gay children and their parents and families, Fr. MSK.


San Diego bishop celebrates special Mass for parents of L.G.B.T. Catholics
October 10, 2017 
Members of the Catholic L.G.B.T. community and their families gathered in a San Diego church on Saturday to celebrate Mass and observe the 20th anniversary of a letter from bishops meant to address the pastoral needs of Catholic parents with gay and lesbian children.
“‘Always Our Children’ was written at a time when good and faithful churchgoing Catholics were witnessing society quickly change before their eyes and the church seemed—in their eyes—to stand still,” Bishop John Dolan, an auxiliary bishop in the Diocese of San Diego, preached at St. John the Evangelist Church, located in San Diego’s historically gay-friendly Hillcrest neighborhood.
The U.S. bishops’ committee on marriage and family released the letter “Always Our Children” in 1997 as an attempt to encourage parents not to abandon their gay and lesbian children and to assure them of God’s love. It received mixed reactions at the time, with some Catholics decrying it as a capitulation to the still-nascent gay rights movement while others said it did not go far enough to combat bigotry in the church and wider society…

2002 Bishops Cover-ups of 
Child Sexual Abuse 
Scapegoating 
Who?


The extreme ignorance of any science on homosexuality and the violence of the Vatican’s homosexual dissociated curia and hierarchical members in 2002 when the first waves of the bishops child sexual abuse coverups were exposed publicly - they went searching for a scapegoat. And out of their repressed homosexual projections, which is made up of their repressed homoerotic feelings - they found their scapegoat - there were a small number of Catholic priests who were removed because of this one time incident in their past as an adolescent. It was an unjust over reaction of panic - to appease the public out cry against the bishops for their decades of cover-ups of child abuse. This horrendous violence made in ignorance of the science on homosexuality against these priests - did absolutely nothing for the protection of children - it only destroyed their lives and while also camouflaging the bishops' ignorance on the science on homosexuality. It also increased the ignorance of societal antigay prejudges and thereby increased their destructive influence to be exploited as a political wedge and increasing their violence to children during early childhood years growing up gay causing in these children the same lifelong harmful effects that are so clearly demonstrated by the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy. It fueled the perpetual cycle of the violence stemming from the ignorance of the science of homosexuality that resulted in addictive behaviors, creating a "lose-lose" situation for everyone. 




















Since Pope Francis came to the papacy in 2013 - the mental type of clerical personal that existed within the Vatican was exposed. It was not a deliberate act on the part of Pope Francis - it had a great deal to with the fact that the social environment that he was raised in - was not overflowing societal antigay prejudges. This was not the case of the members of the curia and hierarchy who inhabited the Vatican, their social environments were extremely antigay, even lethal. Again the obvious striking contrast that existed between them had to do with the presence of empathy and the absence of empathy. As a result Pope Francis just did not blend in with the organizational culture that dominated the Vatican for decades and that was never ever challenged for validity of any ongoing dialogue between science and religion on the topic of homosexuality. It was the elephant in the Vatican that was never acknowledged and much less discussed, but it was responsible for making all the judgments on homosexuality. Now, that is insanity and it certainly is not LOVE. It was clear that for years as far back as 2002 - the curia's and hierarchy's complete ignorance of the science on homosexuality was evident, as well as, not having in judicial oversight for their actions that corruption and their lunacy abounded. Pope Francis had just recently made changes to canon 838 - reversing the curia’s micromanagement of liturgy 2002. The health of Pope John Paul II was deteriorating at this time and it appeared as it did during the Hunthausen affair of the 1980s that “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 (http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1986-09-28/news/8603120562_1_archbishop-weakland-seattle-archbishop-raymond-hunthausen-seattle-archdiocese).” I had researched into some of these court cases of these priests and the general word received from lawyers was the tactics used by the Roman Catholic curia was "ruthless and deceitful" - in particular by Bishops Walter Hurley. Just noting: Hurley was made bishop of the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Michigan one month after Pope Benedict XVI was   elected to the papacy April 2005 and he was removed from the diocese one month after Benedict XVI retired from the papacy February 2013. 




















Restitution Made 
Or
Increasing The Violence 
of 
Societal Antigay Prejudices 


The removal of these priests was terribly wrong it is a testament to the immorality of the curia that remains entrenched. Justice must be forthcoming to these priests - because not to see that they receive justice is to allow the ignorance of societal antigay prejudices grow strong threatening global destruction. One has only to do their historical homework on this subject societal antigay prejudices for verification.

Anti-Gay  H a t e  Crimes 










Matthew Shepard died on October 12, 1998, five days after being brutally attacked in one of the most notorious anti-gay hate crimes in American history. Matthew’s death changed the way people viewed and talked about LGBT people, and eventually led to the passage of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, a federal law against bias-motivated crimes targeting LGBT people, among others…

Is Some Homophobia Self-phobia? 
University of Rochester
April 5, 2012
Anti-gay Bias Linked to Lack of Awareness of One's Sexual Orientation and Authoritarian Parenting, Study Shows
Homophobia is more pronounced in individuals with an unacknowledged attraction to the same sex and who grew up with authoritarian parents who forbade such desires, a series of psychology studies demonstrates.
The study is the first to document the role that both parenting and sexual orientation play in the formation of intense and visceral fear of homosexuals, including self-reported homophobic attitudes, discriminatory bias, implicit hostility towards gays, and endorsement of anti-gay policies. Conducted by a team from the University of Rochester, the University of Essex, England, and the University of California in Santa Barbara, the research will be published the April issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology
"Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves," explains Netta Weinstein, a lecturer at the University of Essex and the study's lead author.
"In many cases these are people who are at war with themselves and they are turning this internal conflict outward," adds co-author Richard Ryan, professor of psychology at the University of Rochester who helped direct the research…
The findings may help to explain the personal dynamics behind some bullying and hate crimes directed at gays and lesbians, the authors argue. Media coverage of gay-related hate crimes suggests that attackers often perceive some level of threat from homosexuals. People in denial about their sexual orientation may lash out because gay targets threaten and bring this internal conflict to the forefront, the authors write.
The research also sheds light on high profile cases in which anti-gay public figures are caught engaging in same-sex sexual acts. The authors write that this dynamic of inner conflict may be reflected in such examples as Ted Haggard, the evangelical preacher who opposed gay marriage but was exposed in a gay sex scandal in 2006, and Glenn Murphy, Jr., former chairman of the Young Republican National Federation and vocal opponent of gay marriage, who was accused of sexually assaulting a 22-year-old man in 2007.
"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," says Ryan. "Homophobia is not a laughing matter. It can sometimes have tragic consequences," Ryan says, pointing to cases such as the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard or the 2011 shooting of Larry King
Across all the studies, participants with supportive and accepting parents were more in touch with their implicit sexual orientation, while participants from authoritarian homes revealed the most discrepancy between explicit and implicit attraction.
"In a predominately heterosexual society, 'know thyself' can be a challenge for many gay individuals. But in controlling and homophobic homes, embracing a minority sexual orientation can be terrifying," explains Weinstein. These individuals risk losing the love and approval of their parents if they admit to same sex attractions, so many people deny or repress that part of themselves, she said…

Science  + 

 + Religion = Truth = L O V E








July 12, 2017 

Bishop David J. Walkowiak
Bishop of the Grand Rapids Diocese
360 Division Avenue S., 
Grand Rapids, MI 49503-4501

Dear Bishop David, 

I received your letter dated October 2015, that included a request to set an appointment to dialogue with you. At the time, my commitments,obligations and lack of financial means did not permit me to follow through. Furthermore, the around trip from Canton, MI to Grand Rapids, MI would have been about eight hours. However, after seeking reliable spiritual direction I was advised to write a letter to accept your request to meet. In the process of writing this letter, I began to thoroughly research the situation, from the combined insight obtained from three professionals perspectives, as a priest, as a psychologist, and as a historian. Through these perspectives, I have analyzed the many ways in which I was a victim of antigay hierarchal violence, having no judicial oversight to appeal to for protection within the church or civilly. This is an unidentified form of structural violence directed not at me alone but also many priests, theologians, sisters, religious and others, including Pope Francis for the past four decades - all have been victims of this form of violence. 

S t r u c t u r a l   V i o l e n c e
Introduction
by Deborah Du Nann Winter and Dana C. Leighton
Peace, conflict, and violence: Peace psychology in the 21st century
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 invisibleembedded 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…
Section II:  Winter, D. D., & Leighton, D. C. (2001). Structural violenceIn D. J. Christie, R. V. Wagner, & D. D. Winter (Eds.), Peace, conflict, and violence: Peace psychology in the 21st centuryNew York: Prentice-Hall.

The main purpose of this form of structural violence is to silence and remove anyone in the Church who openly discusses the science on the sexual orientation of homosexuality - gay people. This antigay hierarchical, structural violence has been successful in firmly suppressing this science on homosexuality for the past 60 years. In 1957, world renowned psychologist, Dr. Evelyn Hooker conducted ground breaking research proving that homosexuality is not a mental illness. She proved that being homosexual was just as normal as being heterosexual. For years the hierarchical church has rebuked such scientifically sound findings and have championed the obsessive suppression of gay people. Such actions lead to question who benefits from falsifying truth? The hierarchical church did not suppress the scientific research on heart surgery or cancer for the past 60 years. This vicious form of gay suppression is entrenched in the corruption of the curia in which speaking the truth has become a reprehensible thing. Through my years of analysis, I have come to find that the greatest harm this suppression imposes is on our children.

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


…whoever causes one of these 
little ones 
who believe in Me to stumble, 
it would be better for him 
to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, 
and to be drowned in the 
depth of the sea. 
Matthew 18:6

My “coming out” in March 1997 was all based on substantiated science and scripture. Furthermore, it was motivated to protect defenseless children. How did risking my life by coming out warrant such extreme vindictive retaliation for the past 20 years by members of the curia and hierarchy? 

How did it get twisted around that I refused to return to the Grand Rapids Dioceses, when in fact, it was made clear to me that it was unsafe for me to return by their coercing me to acquiesce to being sent away to be re-educated on the science on the sexual orientation of homosexuality. They wanted me to leave the priesthood on my own, which would be another grave sin to commit. Since I had no recourse to appeal to for justice in 1997 - what recourse would I have available to me if I returned and more severe immoral tactics were used against me?

This tactic of the curia to dispose of someone was most recently demonstrated by Cardinal Raymond Burke firing Boeselager the Grand Chancellor of the Knights of Malta. Burke falsified a papal decision of Pope Francis that no one was to be fired, that the problematic issues with the Knights of Malta should be resolved through dialogue. Burke without any true dialogue with Boeselager stated that it was Pope Francis’s wish that he resign as the Grand Chancellor of the Knights of Malta. When Boeselager refused to resign because of “unreasonable circumstances,” Burke fired him on the grounds of disobedience. Sound familiar?  Boeselager, then appealed directly to Pope Francis and an investigation was ordered into the firing of Boeselager. It was later exposed that the grounds that Burke had used against Boeselager were over “condoms.” However, this information was contrived by a group of Burke’s supporters known as “Lepanto Institute for the Restoration of All Things in Christ.” This group is described as a “militant traditionalist organization close to Burke (Austen Ivereigh).” “This ultraconservative organization specialized in the denunciation of "gays” entering the Church and in attacks on the major development associations that question unfettered economic liberalism (La Croix International).” On February 4, 2017, Pope Francis replaced Cardinal Burke as the Patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and overnight all over Rome appeared posters of Pope Francis with a sad expression with the words - “Where is your mercy?”

It was the truth from science and religion that morally obligated me to come out for the protection of children growing up gay in March 1997. This was an act of love and my duty as a priest. It is the true meaning of being a priest. Pope Francis  on Thursday, June 22, 2017  in his homily during Mass at Casa Santa Marta confirmed this fact stating,"The Good Shepherd gives his life for his sheep,” using as an example the parish priest of Barbiana, Fr. Don Milani, the from the Diocese of Firenze (Florence). 

The research to find the answers to these questions endlessly kept unfolding more and more information that led back in time - more than a century and a half. The research doors were opened wide once Pope Francis was elected and he along with his team of experts, and cardinals began reforming the curia. The research revealed two main historical events that were dependent on exploiting societal prejudices against gay people to rise and to stay in power. The, first, began with the ideology of Nazism promoted by Hitler and the Nazi regime that led to the deaths of 70 million people unprecedented in human history. The, second, began the with ideology of the “trickle-down theory” known as Reaganomics that led to Globalization and the greatest inequality in human history - “A world where 1% of humanity controls as much wealth as the bottom 99% will never be stable (President Obama’s departing speech to the UN General Assembly September 2016). Ian Kershaw explains what Hitler’s place in history will be:

…Primarily, as the inspiration of the most lethal and destructive war in history, and of the most terrible genocidethe world has ever seen. He left behind him not just physical, but also moral, ruination such as history has never previously experienced. He represented an extreme pathology of modern society. He showed us the most radical face of modern inhumanity – how an advanced society can undergo a breathtaking descent into modern barbarity that’s quite without precedent. That’s what, with the passage of time, we can see was historically defining about Hitler. Never before Hitler’s time had we seen so clearly what human beings are capable of…
…we shouldn’t mystify Hitler’s personality. The uniquenessof Nazism can’t be reduced to that strange personality. Another time, another place, and Hitler would have had no impact at all. He couldn’t have derailed a modern society without that society itself making a major contribution to its own fate… We shouldn’t be complacent about the future. New forms of fascism and racial intolerance rightly appal and worry us…
…what we can do is to remind ourselves of the essential point about Hitler: he represented the most fundamental and frontal assault ever launched on all that we associate with humanity and civilisation. 
Excerpt from: - Hitler’s Place in History - Ian Kershaw
Professor of Modern History at Sheffield University
Lecture - Wednesday 27th April 2005

Over the past year and a half - I have been researching and writing 24/7, since I received your letter - gathering significant amounts of factual data on all three levels (as a priest, psychologist and historian). This research includes my personal experience of being a victim of the hierarchical, antigay violence. As it happens when I do research, such as it did when I was doing the qualitative research on the Holocaust in graduate school for psychology, it is only after thoroughly exhausting every possible avenue several times do all the pieces begin to fall into place like  a jigsaw puzzle that a picture is formed. 

The picture centers on the crucial importance for the safety and well-being of all of humanity present and on into the future and is dependent on maintaining an ongoing dialogue between science and religion. This is necessary to obtain truth that which then gives meaning and value to love. Without this truth formed through this process - 

…Love becomes an empty shell, to be filled in an arbitrary way. In a culture without truth, this is the fatal risk facing love. It falls prey to contingent subjective emotions and opinions, the word “love” is abused and distorted,to the point where it comes to mean the opposite… 
Benedict XVI - Caritas in Veritate 2007  2009

Pope Benedict XVI goes on to make the warning that “Any breach in this dialogue comes only at an enormous price to human development…” St. Pope John Paul II made an early statement to this effect explaining how science and religion cannot be separated. He explains - as Benedict does that science is the study of all of God’s creation and religion is formed from the bible, which is the inspired word of God. They both explain how the dialogue between science and religion becomes a self-correcting mechanism of oversight, preventing abuse and maintaining integrity of both science and religion - thus allowing science and religion to guide us on our journey into the future. Both John Paul II and Benedict XVI are writing from their experience having lived through the atrocities of Hitler and the Nazi regime (1933-1945) that resulted from their manipulation and abuse of science and religion to invent a pseudo-science to legitimize Hitler’s ideology of Nazism and pseudo-religious terms to promote it. They experienced living in a social environment saturated in the racial ideology of Nazism - where the meaning of love was so twisted around that in actuality love meant the opposite. Love meant exterminating people considered to be less than human or subhuman - “Life Unworthy Of Life.” 

With the recent election of President Trump we are experiencing living in a similar social environment saturated with the ideology of the “trickle-down theory.” This led to Globalization that was also legitimized by the manipulation of science and religion that twisted the meaning of love around to mean the exact opposite. In addition to Mr. Trump’s behavior, the Republican Convention 2016 slogans, “Lock her up!” (that sounded like the palpable hysteria of the Nazi Party “Sieg Heil” chant at a Cathedral lit Nuremberg Rally of the 1930s) and his being elected US president are all blatant examples of love twisted to mean the opposite. Both the rise of Nazism and Globalization were depended on the exploitation of societal prejudices against gay people. 

However, in regards to rise of the  “trickle-down theory”of the 1980s that led to Globalization - the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy are responsible for the exploitation of societal prejudices against gay people. The research of Dr. Evelyn Hooker and subsequent research completely dispel prejudices against gay people. Instead of the curia and hierarchy acknowledging the truth of this science - they manipulated religion by misusing the bible and continued to wrongly condemn homosexuality. Thus they twisted the meaning of truth around to the point that it continues to mean the opposite. They and their supporters are not about truth and therefore not about love. They are no different than the palpable hysteria of the Nazi Party “Sieg Heil” members at the Nuremberg Rallies of the 1930s. And this is the violence, their twisted meaning of truth - the complete absence of love, they have used against me and against so many others before and after me. Some of our best and brightest theologians and bridge makers, such as, Sister Jeannine Gramick and Fr. Robert Nugent. Gramick and Nugent have been responsible since 1977 for saving millions of people’s lives, especially very young children. To the best of my knowledge, they were the first to begin an ongoing dialogue on the science of the sexual orientation of homosexuality - gay people and religion - scripture and theology.   

S c i e n c e   can purify religion from error and superstition; 
R e l i g i o n   can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. 
Each can draw the other into a wider world, 
a world in which both can flourish. 
For the truth of the matter is that the Church and the scientific 
community will inevitably interact; their options 
do not include isolation. 
St. Pope John Paul II - 1988

I came out in March 1997: for the protection of children, as young as 4 and 5 years of age, who are growing up gay. Since then it has become a moral obligation to educate and prevent forced parental suppression and unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms.What has bothered me ever since was the fact that I found it difficult to find the  r o o t   c a u s e  in understanding “how” and “why” and “when” did the meaning of “love” and “truth” get so monumentally - twisted around; notably among the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy to mean the exact opposite.

For the past 10 years I have been writing in an effort to explain how this mindless inquisition that started almost immediately after coming out in June 1997 - of being coerced “behind closed doors” by a directive from the curia conveyed by the bishop for me to acquiesce to being sent away “somewhere” to be re-educated on the science on the sexual orientation of homosexuality. This directive was not only shocking, but traumatizing as well. 

This irrational directive from the curia completely negated the immediate need of protecting the lives of millions of very young defenseless children from lifelong debilitating harmful effects. It also negated the wealth of the authoritative substantiated research gathered from the major medical and mental health associations, institutions, and organizations, including universities. This was the reason for my “coming out.” 

Through knowledge acquired during my studies at the University of Michigan and attending the American Psychological AssociationNational Conventions my research was reinforced on the science of sexual orientation. The action of the curia and hierarchy was a blatant affront, a direct attack on truth and love, as taught and embodied in Jesus Christ, of which the entire purpose and meaning of priesthood is based on. It was like a supervisor telling a heart surgeon that he is going to be be sent away on a sabbatical to be reeducated on the ancient system of medicine known as “bloodletting.” I cannot explain how twisted it sounded - to be told such absurdity!!! “Who in the hell is running this ship?!?” I was 47 years old at the time.

How did the curia and hierarchy cause a breach in the dialogue between science and religion that ended up twisting the meaning of love around to mean the opposite?

We will learn from studying the - science on sexual orientation that it is composed of interrelated biological and psychological processes that are not able to be consciously controlled or suppressed. These interrelated processes function outside our conscious awareness - automatically and continuously throughout life as part of the autonomic nervous system - like the heart beating and breathing. The continuous functioning of our sexual orientation - is essential in meeting our most basic human need for love, attachment, intimacy, through which empathy is developed. The continuous functioning of our sexual orientation is as vital to human survival from the beginning of life to the end - as the heart beating and breathing. Any attempt to force the suppression of a child’s gay sexual orientation is the same as suppressing the heart and breathing rate which can cause a number of lifelong adverse effects (persistent form of depression (dysthymia), suicidal ideation, and obsessive dislike for gay people that is implicit, to explicit verbal expressions of hate, to lethal forms of violence, and torture).

The majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy are European. They are the ones who grew up in the toxic antigay social environments left behind by Hitler’s Nazi regime. This begins to explain the long history of the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy’s collective obsessive antigay crusade. This collective thought suppressed all emerging science on homosexuality for the past 60 years. For these members of the curia and hierarchy the thought of gay science has been a long closed door slammed shut in their early childhood years. This was out of great fear from their witnessing the terror in the adult’s warnings of how Hitler treated priests who were found out to be homosexuals. As this trauma of the early childhood events are not remembered, only the emotional terror of the event remains. It is this emotional terror that is wronglymistaken as an innate guiding voice of their conscience strongly conveying to them that homosexuality is evil. This misunderstanding then becomes a force that completely obliterates years of scientific research on homosexuality. It is more likely that such scientific research ignites seemingly unending waves of unexplainable terror. That door slammed tightly shut - is the breach in the dialogue between science and religion on the issue of homosexuality. This is a childhood defense mechanism. It is the only means available to the child to stop the unending waves of fear. However, as adults, these childhood defenses must be reexamined in a safe environment - to be challenged in the adult dialogue between science and religion on issues of homosexuality. As Pope Benedict XVI explains, this is the only process to find truth and give real value and meaning to the understanding of love. I do not presume this to be an easy task to unravel and should only be attempted in a safe environment. However, this situation - is not unusual - it brings to mind the words of St. Paul to be understood with great care and empathy.  

When I was a child, I talked like a child, 
I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. 
When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
1 Corinthians 13:11

No, no, no this type of breach in the dialogue between science and religion on gay sexual orientation has to stop! Justice demands that I be exonerated and proper restitution be made for all harm endured, including the lost salary for the past 20 years to be made quickly. Not to follow through on this road of true justice is to continue this breach in the dialogue between science and religion on gay sexual orientation. Am I, like so many others, going to be made an example of what happens when a priest speaks aloud the truth? Will this be a situation reminiscent of Hitler’s regime to remove and silence Anti-Nazi priests? Are you going demonstrate publicly how an advanced society of people made a major contribution to the modern barbarity of Hitler and the Nazi regime by their complicity and indifference?

 My moral obligation as a priest is to protect people, especially children.

I look forward to setting a time to dialogue the reality of this situation in the light of the warnings of both St. Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI while maintaining an open discussion between science and religion for the search of truth that leads to love. 


Sincerely yours,

Re-education Clinics - of homosexual sexual orientation 


QUACKS: 'Conversion Therapists,' the Anti-LGBT Right, and the Demonization of Homosexuality
May 25, 2016
This is a report about junk science and some of the people who propagate it. It is not about silly, perhaps amusing theories about ESP or life on the moon or even purported miracle cures for cancer. The “science” examined here actively harms people, leading with grim regularity to suicidedepression and an array of self-destructive behaviors. It demeans, defames and defrauds human beings, typically at their most vulnerable moments. And, as if that weren’t enough, it regularly lays the blame for the alleged malady of homosexuality at the feet of gay people’s parents, despite the fact that they are wholly innocent.
Executive Summary
Will standing in a circle of naked men deep in the woods turn gay men straight? Is disrobing in front of a mirror alone with your therapist and then touching “your masculinity” a cure for homosexuality? Does beating a pillow representing your mother really help develop “healthy” relationships with other men?
The men and women who people this industry known as “conversion,” “reparative” or “ex-gay” therapists are like modern-day phrenologists, the “experts” beloved by the Nazis who thought they could identify inferior human beings by measuring their subjects’ skulls. They employ theories that have been thoroughly debunked by virtually all relevant medical associations. They cite bizarre studies that were shot down decades ago as key documents. They use techniques that were described in court by one expert as “worse than snake oil.” They are quacks.
Many of them are doubtless sincere. Some describe their own struggles with “unwanted same-sex attractions.” But sincere or not, the promotion of conversion therapy has a cynical side. If being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender is merely a chosen behavior, one that can be “fixed” with the right mental health treatment, then criticizing LGBT people for their sexual choices is akin to simply criticizing bad behavior. Unlike attacking someone for their skin color, reparative therapists can condemn the gay “lifestyle” and still claim that they are not LGBT-hating bigots.
The real science is perfectly clear. A consensus of the vast majority of psychiatrists, psychologists and other counselors and their professional organizations agree that homosexuality is a normal variation of human sexuality. Likewise, they condemn reparative therapy and other attempts to change sexual orientation

Fr. Marty Kurylowicz - June 9, 2017 
Excerpts:




















Holy Family Parish, Sparta, Michigan 

The hierarchy and Pope Francis -  vividly validated the reasoning for the immediacy - why I came out in March 1997, as pastor of Holy Family Parish, Sparta, Michigan - for the protection of gay children, as young as 4 and 5 years of age - from the lifelong harmful effects growing up gay or bisexual - during early childhood caused by the influence of anti-gay social and religious norms. These lifelong harmful effects can be clearly observed in the curia and hierarchy fierce homophobic behavior - their inability to form life-long meaningful and fulfilling relationships, including their inability to connect with others, their lack of empathy for others, their over concerns about outward appearance, status and careers, as noted in Pope Francis "Christmas address to the curia", December 22, 2014.  It is not only their complete absence of maintaining any ongoing dialogue between science and religion on the topic homosexual sexual orientation for the past 60 years, which is directly against the words of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI , it is also by their immediate emotional explosive outbursts to the 2014 midterm report of Synod session on Family - that listed notes of the open discussion that took place -  discussing ways of how to be pastorally more welcoming to gay people and their families, including ways of valuing long term committed gay relationships. There was a lot of emotional outbursts among the curia and hierarchyhowever, there is absolutely - no detail reasoning to substantiate their extraordinary hostile and aggressive reactions to the report. So intense was their fierce emotional reaction that the continuation of this open discussion on gay people scheduled for the second synod on Family session 2015 had to be canceled.

Sadly, one cannot, also, help to notice the enormous amount of the emotional psychic energy that is use by the curia and the hierarchy completely absorbed in an anti-gay obsession and the enormous amount of Pope Francis emotional psychic energy is used in reaching out to all people globally in nearly every situation in extraordinary effort to be inclusive of everyone, particularly those most forgotten and are in need of our help. Pope Francis has been relentless in this regard since his election to the papacy in March 2013.






















As Church Shifts, a Cardinal Welcomes Gays; They Embrace a ‘Miracle’
The New York Times 
June 13, 2017
NEWARK — The word “pilgrimage” usually evokes visions of far-off, exotic places, but for some 100 gay and lesbian Catholics and their families, a pilgrimage to the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart here on a recent Sunday was more like a homecoming.
The doors to the cathedral were opened to them, and they were welcomed personally by the leader of the Archdiocese of Newark, Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin. They were seated on folding chairs at the cathedral’s center, in front of the altar in the towering sanctuary, under the blue-tinted glow of stained glass.
“I am Joseph, your brother,” Cardinal Tobin told the group, which included lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Catholics from around New York and the five dioceses in New Jersey. “I am your brother, as a disciple of Jesus. I am your brother, as a sinner who finds mercy with the Lord.”
The welcoming of a group of openly gay people to Mass by a leader of Cardinal Tobin’s standing in the Roman Catholic Church in this country would have been unthinkable even five years ago. But Cardinal Tobin, whom Pope Francis appointed to Newark last year, is among a small but growing group of bishops changing how the American church relates to its gay members. They are seeking to be more inclusive and signaling to subordinate priests that they should do the same…
Four years ago, Pope Francis shook the Catholic world with his comment about gay priests seeking the Lord: “Who am I to judge?” But it was unclear how his words would affect Catholics seeking acceptance in the pews…
But gestures like Cardinal Tobin’s are evidence that Pope Francis’ words are having an impact…

AUSCHWITZ -- CHRISTMAS 2008 -- A flashback far more severe than in --- BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN – December 26, 2008 – Fr. Marty Kurylowicz




I have been so saddened by Pope Benedict XVI's cruel words to LGBTQ people around the world, to their parents, families and friends, most ESPECIALLY TO CHILDREN. After reading the accounts of this human travesty, I did not know where to find comfort or hope. And then I thought about your blog. And just like receiving a wonderful Christmas present, sure enough I found the hope and comfort I needed to hear. Photo 

I am a priest and a clinical psychologist (MS). And for one of my research projects I chose to do a qualitative research project of the recorded verbal accounts of survivors of the Holocaust, 50 years after the event. It was a difficult research project, because I could not make sense of one of the accounts of the survivors. 

For example, one survivor was describing what it was like riding the train to AUSCHWITZ, but he was describing how he was trying to make conversation with a girl on the train. I listened and wrote out this one account almost 30 times but I just was not getting it. I could not understand how this man could be talking about wanting to make conversation with this girl on the same train to AUSCHWITZ!?! 

Because I had taught high school religion classes for nearly 20 years, it hit me hard, like a flash of lightning. Instantly, all the pieces came together, so fast. Though this survivor was in his late 60’s when he gave his account of his story on audiotape, he was remembering the events that took place, but naturally they were recounted through the mind of a teenager, the age he was on the train to AUSCHWITZ. That is why the dialogue wasn’t making any sense. I was thinking of him as an old man because the voice on the audiotape was the voice of a 68-year-old. As shocking as a bomb going off, all the different aspects of the psychological developmental stages of a teenager kicked in. I realized only too fully that he was just a young normal teenager on that train!!! And so was the girl he was trying to make conversation, and their moms and dads were there with them!!! There was no way to pretend I did not realize what I discovered. It kept hitting me: this is not some script from a movie or TV miniseries on the Holocaust. No; as much as I wished it were. The reality of this horror hit me all at once, on so many different levels of consciousness: what an unbelievable horror it was!!! How could we treat human beings like this! I remember when the realization of the magnitude of this horror first hit me, like an instant reflex. I threw down the transcript I was holding as if it were a blazing hot poker. It kept hitting me over and over again that this is not a movie script or some kind of play – this really happened! It really happened! Oh, my God, how could this have happened!?!!!

My supervisor told me at the time that I was traumatized by the oral content. Qualitative research is an attempt to understand the complexity of emotions, the kinds of emotions, and the degree of intensity involved. Our emotions are what allow us to connect with other human beings. We identify with the non-verbal quality of emotions more immediately and strongly than with the words used to express them. The non-verbal qualities include tone of voice, eye contact, facial expression, body posture, and gestures, all of which express emotions. Emotions are why we can connect with people through time, across cultures, and individually. It is the expression of human emotions in the arts that makes some works of art timeless, because they continually speak to all people through the ages. 

And when I heard what Pope Benedict XVI said about homosexuals and transgendered human beings at Christmas 2008, I felt that same trauma all over again. Because in some way, somehow, he was conveying in a non-verbal manner the horror of the Holocaust, in what appears to be a traumatized, trance-like, accepted social norm from that period of time dictating that some people just don’t count, aren’t important, and can be easily disposed of. And if you rock the boat, you could be next to be disposed of.

I truly have to believe that a person in his position would not be doing this consciously or intentionally. The horror of the Holocaust is like an atomic bomb with fallout so extensive that it spreads over a radius of more than 150 miles. The horror of the Holocaust began in 1933 and ended in 1945. The psychological fallout would have been far more extensive and more deadly, especially when it is notidentified as such.

It hit me the way it did when I realized that the research I was doing about a Holocaust survivor, a man 68 years old telling his story, who was remembering what it was like to be on the train to AUSCHWITZ, from the perspective of a young teenage boy who just wanted to talk to a girl. It seemed like the same kind of horror, a tacit assumption that some people don't count and can be disposed of without remorse. Could it be that Benedict XVI is unconsciously repeating Hitler's crime against humanity by taking on a long-accepted social attitude from that period of time? 

The question I asked myself was: what would it have been like for someone growing up gay during the Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933 -1945

What would be the severity of the psychological effects on a boy who grew up to be gay in Germany during the time of Hitler’s NAZI PERSECUTION OF HOMOSEXUALS 1933 -1945? During the Nazi regime, homosexuals were publicly defamed and falsely accused for the major social problems of that time, which was done to incite massive public hatred and hostility directed against homosexuals. Homosexuals were used for medical experiments, physically mutilated, brutally tortured and exterminated.

Would this child, as an adult, in a severe dissociated state of mind from his own homosexual feelings (Harry Stack Sullivan MD, Dissociative Processes, Clinical Studies on Psychiatry (1956)), unconsciously perpetuate the terrifying horror of the insensitivity he had experienced growing up? If he found himself in a position of authority would he recreate the same social and political environment of violence and terror for homosexuals that he experienced, as a child who grew up to be gay, during the NAZI PERSECUTION OF HOMOSEXUALS? 

I think in truth on a much deeper level I was frightened, really frightened, to hear Pope Benedict XVI’s Christmas remarks against homosexuals and transgendered human beings and even more frightened by the silence from the larger global community of human beings. What is so frightening is, even if there is agreement that one person does not matter or is not important, in truth then no one matters. Therefore, when I thought about your blog and what you did on October 5, 2008, I felt more reassured, I felt hope, and I felt comforted. NOW, isn’t that the true meaning of Christmas? 

God Bless you,

Fr. Marty Kurylowicz

…whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it 
would be better for him 
to have a heavy 
millstone hung around his neck, 
and to be drowned in the 
depth of the sea.
