NY GAY MARRIAGE Bill - Gay Catholic Priest Fr. Marty Kurylowicz - Sends LETTERS to All NY STATE SENATORS – June 7, 2011 - How Strong is the VATICAN in the USA?
For the past 30 years, beginning in 1981, Benedict XVI has been able to establish a well-oiled machine of electing bishops, cardinals and procuring outside personnel to handle in secret “behind closed doors” (1) the silencing, removal of academics, theologians, priests, sisters and other religious personnel regarding issues related to the teaching of sexual orientation and (2) the ordering of the covering-up of child sexual abuse cases by use of intimidation in order to silence the victims and by removing any priest, sister, or Catholic personal who breaks the silence of these cover-ups. In 2002, beginning in Boston this well maintained secrecy began to break up regarding decades of cover-ups of child sexual abuse with the global emergence of the internet. The use of the internet became an unstoppable vehicle of communications that help organize the sexual abuse victims to be able to go public – telling how they were intimidated, threatened and mistreated when they came to their local bishops for help.

Who Needs Protection Regarding Gay Marriage?
Benedict XVI and the Hierarchy are now crying for government protection if the gay marriage bill is passed in New York State. They are worried that for their past 30 years of endless discrimination against gays that they will now lead them to be prosecuted. It was the same outcry Benedict XVI made against the UK when they were going to past their Anti-Discrimination Laws 2010. This is as bad as the Vatican – Benedict XVI – stating in response to the global public outcry 2010 to the magnitude of the ongoing revelations of the child sexual abuse cover-ups that he is being attacked unfairly that it is anti-Catholicism faring up again, while ignoring valid public outcry for justice for the victims and an end to child abuse. And now at this time in history after more people are learning the facts about sexual orientation and early childhood growing up gay, they are now more supportive than ever for gay people – Benedict XVI is again – crying that there is reverse discrimination against him because he is antigay.

However, with more than half number of Catholics supporting gay marriage – it is becoming harder for Benedict XVI to convince people that his unsubstantiated antigay teachings are Church teachings. It is just like Benedict XVI trying to condemn Galileo for stating that it is the earth that revolves around the sun, because the bible clearly states repeatedly that the earth does not move. This is plainly a matter of purposefully remaining ignorant and in all cases at the expense of the well-being of children.

The Importance of Acquiring a Well-Informed Conscience
On The Issue of Gay Marriage
This piece of legislation the gay marriage bill is not like any other in that it involves the well-being of children, at its very root. You have been given a “hot potato” because children do not have a voice to protect them, you are, and we are their voices. The responsibility that is involved in this gay marriage is tremendous and overwhelming. I know this because this is the same “hot potato” that landed in my lap, March 1997. If you run from this responsibility, you will live with unending regret that you allowed innocent children to be continually harmed knowing that you had one chance in a lifetime to do something extraordinary for the well-being of children and people around the world. If you face and accept this responsibility of protecting children, you risk your political career, indeed your very life, as you know it. However, when I came out to my great surprise it was successful at my parish - Holy Family Catholic Parish, Sparta, Michigan and this was 1997. I think that for the NY State Republican Senators today 2011 - the social climate as polls indicate is significantly better than it was in 1997 with the majority of Catholics now accepting gay marriage. The reverse may be truer today for NY State Republican Senators that “not supporting gay marriage” could have an adverse effect on your political career. Photo
I believe this to be true – because gay marriage (human sexuality, sexual orientation) is like Galileo it is about the true facts of science. Condemning Galileo showed real ignorance on the part of the Vatican, which Pope John Paul II confirmed and apologized for in 1992. Even though, it is indeed a most unfair situation to be placed in. How I resolved this situation was through hours upon hours of continuous prayer. Afterwards, I came to the realization that my life had already been altered – changed forever. Because there was no way I could pretend I did not know what I knew, how severely children are harmed for life by the unsubstantiated antigay teachings and antigay social norms. I decided that I could not live with the regret knowing that I had a chance to make a profound difference for the better for others, most especially children and that I did nothing. My life would be nothing. I took the bungee jump and I came out to my parishioners. It definitely was not easy, but one thing that happened to me is - I gained a real sense of peace and well-being that has remained constant and unshaken. The scripture passages that kept repeating over and over in my head were:
“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.” Matthew 16:25
“What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self?” Luke 9:25
“Anyone who loves their FATHER or mother more than me is not worthy of me;… Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.” Matthew 10:36-38
“…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
Even after Benedict XVI and his accomplices’ mistreatment of me and the serious harm they have caused me that sense of peace has never left me. It is remains rock solid. I believe that is the benefit of spending the time and energy of acquiring a well-informed conscience regarding sexual orientation. Photo

Kurylowicz Comes Out - By Charles Honey - June 28, 1997 - …A spokeswoman for the U.S. Catholic Bishops Conference said Kurylowicz's coming out to his congregation, first in a newsletter then from the pulpit on Holy Thursday, is "UNPRECEDENTED." "No one knows of anyone who has spoken of this from the pulpit," said Sister Mary Ann Walsh…"It was one part [being gay] of myself that was just closed off," says the youthful-looking 47-year old. But the feelings persisted. "Just like any heterosexual, those feelings are always there," explains Kurylowicz, who speaks with a nervous but friendly intensity. "You're shamed by it every time they come up. Then you (start) running away. You stop being who you are. You become something that you think others will find more acceptable." Kurylowicz became a workaholic…Kurylowicz says his decision was triggered by a report that homosexually oriented CHILDREN as young as 4 realize they're DIFFERENT. He was moved by the pain those CHILDREN feel… "Then I realized they don't have a voice, and I'm the one [a CATHOLIC PRIEST] that's supposed to say something," Kurylowicz says. "That's why I couldn't walk away from it."…
Impending Rules on Gay Priests Create Catholic Divide - October 8, 2005 - …Rev. Martin Kurylowicz came out to his Sparta parish eight years ago, he said he had struggled for years with his homosexuality… the struggle would be made harder for many others if the Vatican issues new rules that reportedly would ban gays from becoming priests… “Kids as young as 4 or 5 know they're DIFFERENT," said Kurylowicz, a psychotherapist… "They grow up with this pervasive guilt, which sabotages their growth and motivation." The result is thousands of dollars in therapy to accept their natural orientation, he said, adding, "DOES THE VATICAN WANT TO TAKE THAT ON, LIKE THE TOBACCO INDUSTRY HAD TO TAKE ON FOR THE DAMAGE IT CAUSED CONSUMERS?”… - 10/8/05
Parishioners Supportive Of Gay Priest - By Charley Honey - March 29, 1997 - The Rev. Martin Kurylowicz got lots of hugs after Good Friday services at Sparta's Holy Family Catholic Church…He spoke up after attending a national conference on gay issues and the Catholic Church in early March. He was disturbed by accounts of homosexual CHILDREN feeling isolated and parents feeling they did something wrong. "I just couldn't walk away from it," he said. "I couldn't deny the pain." He hopes his admission will raise awareness of violence against homosexuals…
Vatican Crackdown - 1983 of Archbishop Hunthausen of Seattle, Washington for Supporting gays and lesbians 1970’s – by Ratzinger(Benedict XVI)

…the 9.30.85 Ratzinger Letter
…Ratzinger’s letter is a vision of the Church which he expresses explicitly and repeatedly…a demonstration of Ratzinger’s personal possession of expert power. According to this vision, there is a clear, consistent and true teaching of the Church which can be known and passed on (the authentic tradition is singular). The duty of the hierarchy in relationship to this teaching is to defend it and pass it on untainted with error. (Contrast this with Hunthausen’s emphasis on renewal, Vatican II and the “guidance of the Holy Spirit.”) This is where Hunthausen has fallen short. As Ratzinger sees it, confusion and a lack of clarity about where the Church stands have been allowed to settle into many aspects of archdiocesan pastoral practice…This, Ratzinger proposes, is the business at hand, the set of issues which Hunthausen is to address in his leadership of the archdiocese and in his exchanges with the Holy See (Rome controls the agenda). Photo
Notably, an issue that Ratzinger does not mention is Hunthausen’s controversial stand on nuclear weapons…
Despite Ratzinger’s invocation of the Second Vatican Council, he acknowledges here no earthly forms of authority arising outside of the Church. On the contrary, extraecclesial sources of knowledge are depicted here as posing a threat to the proper catechesis and pastoral service of the faithful: “The Church should be understood as more than a merely social entity, governed chiefly by psychological, sociological and political processes,”
Ratzinger writes. “An anthropology which is dominated by the tentative conclusions of the human sciences could well undermine many pastoral initiatives, however well intentioned.” Juxtaposed with the remarks about the limits of the “human sciences” is a catalogue of references to teachings of the magisterium, which offer the kind of sure teaching absent in the extraecclesial disciplines. Thus, if Hunthausen is unclear himself about the way forward, he is invited to have reference to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s 1976 Declaration on Sexual Ethics, the documents of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference, the revised Code of Canon Law, the Congregation’s 1975 Instruction, Inter Insigniores, etc. (These documents signal the Holy See’s possession of superior legal and expert power.) The technical nature of this presentation highlights the fact that this is a communication between one bishop and another. It also underscores Ratzinger’s view that this is an intraecclesial matter that Hunthausen is expected to address with intraecclesial resources...

Vatican II --- "It was a time of a new hope” October 11, 2012
At Rome's Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, 50 years ago this week, the newly elected pontiff stunned the world by calling the first Catholic Church Council in nearly a century — the Second Vatican Council, or what's known as Vatican II.
Pope John XXIII called for the institution's renewal and more interaction with the modern world.
As a result of Vatican II, the Catholic Church opened its windows onto the modern world, updated the liturgy, gave a larger role to laypeople, introduced the concept of religious freedom and started a dialogue with other religions.
"It was a time of a new hope, when everybody was proud that we are able to convoke such a council, and having a real renewal of the Catholic Church," says Hans Kung, who was the youngest theologian at Vatican II.
But the changes provoked a backlash, and many Catholics today say the council's renewal momentum has been stopped in its tracks…
