Parishioners supportive of gay priest, March 29, 1997, The Grand Rapids Press

The Rev. Martin Kurylowicz got lots of hugs after Good Friday services at Sparta's Holy Family Catholic Church. But he expects others soon will react less lovingly to news that he is gay.

"I was just filled with tears, there were so many hugs," said Kurylowicz, 47, following Friday's well-attended afternoon service. "It means more now, because they know the real me." But he added there are "a lot of people hurting and confused" and anticipates some hostile reaction in the days ahead. Photo 

"There's going to be some hate," Kurylowicz said. "I think the worst is coming."

Kurylowicz told the 550-member church this week -- in a newsletter and at Holy Thursday services -- that he is a celibate homosexual. He said he met with concerned parishioners following services Thursday night, Friday afternoon and again Friday evening. Read complete article – by Charles Honey - Religion Editor - The Grand Rapids Press – Archives

Marriage Equality -> Restores “Hope of Love” To Children In Early Childhood
It is not about me.  Like Galileo, all I have is a little piece of truth about the facts of growing up gay. Marriage Equality will not become a reality until people learn that its most vital purpose is that it restores the “hope of love” to children in early childhood – essential to their development and well-being for life. Without Marriage Equality we teach children how to hate love and how to be mean and indifferent to people as adults. With all due respect, without Marriage Equality we would teach them in much the same way as has been shown by Benedict XVI and the hierarchy, especially in their lack of care and protection of children for decades.
