I wrote to a colleague… my problem regarding my financial situation… I explain that –
“My problems began March 1997 - when I decided to come out to protect children who grow up gay. As the truth surrounding Benedict XVI child sexual abuse cover-ups began to unravel with the release of the Irish child sexual abuse investigation, December 2009 - his calculated systematic approach in handling the cover-ups and punishing any priest who broke the silence - helps to explain my situation. The above is all documented.
Dr. (another colleague) likened my situation to the 1944 movie “Gaslight” (causing a person to believe she is sick when she is not) growing up believing that homosexuality is evil, when it is not, like believing that it is the sun that revolves around the earth, when it does not (Galileo). My situation in the priesthood has a close resemblance to “The Firm” 1993 (surprised discovering that he is working for crooks). And then my “coming out” in March 1997 to protect children reminds me of the movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest” 1975 (calling a halt to inhuman treatment) however, minus any criminal misconduct on my part. After my “coming out” the mistreatment by then Ratzinger, Hurly, Maida and accomplices (read more) seems like a mixture of “Enemy of the State” 1998 (attacking a person’s reputation to destroy his credibility), “The Firm” 1993, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest” 1975, and later in 2008 & 2009, a bit of the Martha Mitchell Effect. Unbelievable! Read more
