Hello, 

My name is Fr. Marty Kurylowicz, a Roman Catholic priest from the Diocese of Grand Rapids Michigan ordained June 16, 1979.

I am writing this letter to inform my family, friends, parishioners, colleagues, government officials, justices, attorneys, and others about the “adverse action that was taken against me by the Vatican after I came out, as a gay Catholic priest for the protection of gay children in March of 1997. Photo - Holy Family Parish, Sparta, MI

It may have been a severe intimidation tactic to get me to leave the priesthood, which I refused to do.  Photo  Regardless, the intent was malicious and made it clear that I was not wanted to remain in the Diocese nor would it be safe for me to do so.  Since, that time, I have been the target of vindictive attacks directed against my reputation aimed at ending my means to financially support myself. There is documented evidence that these types of character assassination tactics are associated with Cardinal Ratzinger’s investigation of Archbishop Hunthausen and as Benedict XVI used against Dino Boffo a catholic journalist and Vatican bank's ex-president, Tedeschi.  These attacks have been ongoing for the past 15 years and have ultimately led to my bankruptcy. The constant related distress eventually led me this past year to be hospitalized 3 times for bleeding stomach ulcers. (http://igitur-archive.library.uu.nl/dissertations/2003-0206-111237/c6.pdf

Now, 15 years later, among the other questionable charges being used to remove me from the priesthood, Benedict XVI is also charging me for “coming out in 1997 and starting the Thalamus Center, an educational blog on early childhood psychological development.  Photo

Two months after I came out, Ratzinger, the Vatican’s official in charge, did not mention one word about my “coming out.”  In 1997, this type of brutality by the Vatican would have been completely unbelievable, but not today in 2013. In 1997, I came out for the protection and growth of gay children growing up. In addition, in 2012, I am making public the type of vindictive attacks that I have endured for the past 15 years by Ratzinger and now Benedict XVI to draw public attention to how those in the Church  attempting to speak out for the protection of children are then severely silenced. This also includes, though not limited to, those who threaten to expose the corruption in the Vatican. And to draw public attention to the fact that there are no USA laws to protect the USA citizens in the Church from this type illegal and life-threatening treatment by the Vatican, even when it is to protect the lives of all USA citizens.

It is of significant importance to research the facts of 1997 related to all those in the Church who publicly supported the science of early childhood psychological development regarding growing up gay.  Photo


Because this science was moving forward in the Church among the US Bishops, along with Pope John Paul’s group of scientists and theologians studying homosexuality, and including the New Ways Ministry’s co-founders that had the potential to permanently alter the Church’s teachings on homosexuality, like it did for Galileo. However, the evidence, like that of the child sexual abuse cover-ups, reveals that Ratzinger was the strong covert force in the Vatican working to prevent this from happening. Photo

IMarch of 1997, I attended the New Ways Ministry National Symposium (Gay Catholic Educational Conference) that was held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I learned [from Dr. Richard Isay's keynote address] that children as young as 4 and 5 years of age know that they are “different” not that they are gay.  It is only as adults do they identify this being “different” as being gay. However, the harmful influence of antigay social and religious norms -- in particular, for Catholics, the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings -- are severe and last throughout a child’s lifetime, especially disrupting their ability to form long and lasting relationships. The harmful effects are not isolated only to these children who grow up to be gay, but also affect their families, siblings, friends and anyone whom they might consider special in their lives. They are a prescribed societal sentence of implicit isolation, which place at risk of suicide so many innocent adolescents and young adults. They stifle an enormous amount of human potential in the world that otherwise could be put to use for finding cures for diseases, offering better ways of maintaining peace among people and improving the quality of life for everyone in the world. 

[After the New Ways Ministry National Symposium in March 1997, in good conscience I felt intensely morally obligated to "come out" as a gay Catholic priest to my parishioners at Holy Family Parish, Sparta, Michigan USA, to draw public attention to this implicit form of child abuse. This abuse is caused by the harmful influence of antigay social and religious norms, in particular, for Catholics, the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings.]  (2010 USA letter). Photo

Being Homosexual: Gay Men and Their Development
By Richard Isay, M.D., 1989, 2009
Chapter 2, Childhood and Early Homosexual Identity


Page 2 of 8

The New Ways Ministry’s co-founders, Sr. Gramick and Fr. Nugent, focused on education by brining together the best and the brightest professionals from the various fields of science, theology and scripture, related to the sexual orientation of homosexuality. I came out, in 1997, based on and to draw public attention to the clinical research data accepted by the medical and mental health professionals and associations regarding lifetime harmful effects caused to children growing up gay by unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms.  At that time, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in a statement to the press called my  “coming out” “unprecedented” and six months later in September 1997 they released the first positive document on homosexuality focusing on the care of gay children “Always Our Children.”   
(http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2011/03/catholics-coming-out-fr-marty.html) 

Pope John Paul II had commissioned a group of theologians and scientists to thoroughly investigate the authoritative research data on homosexuality, as he had commissioned a group to review Galileo’s trial that condemned him as a heretic for contradicting the bible passages stating that the earth does not move. The results led to John Paul’s apology stating in 1992 that Galileo was right and the Vatican was wrongHowever, Ratzinger (Benedict XVI) since 1981 has been suppressing the emerging science on homosexuality by silencing and removing those advocating open discussion exploring the effects that would permanently change the Church’s teachings regarding homosexuality;  in the same way Galileo was silenced and condemned as a heretic in order to suppress the emerging science about the sun and the earth.



Revised  - Added 1 reference link: 5/3/13



...the condemnation was hardly convincing.  Giorgio de Santillana, author of The Crime of Galileo, wrote of Caccini's testimony: "The whole deposition is such an interminable mass of twists and innuendoes and double talk that a summary does no justice to it."

...When depositions in the Galileo matter concluded, the Commissary-General forwarded two propositions of Galileo to eleven theologians (called "Qualifiers") for their evaluation: (1) The Sun is the center of the world and immovable of local motion, and (2) The Earth is not the center of the world, nor immovable, but moves according to the whole of itself, also with a diurnal motion.  Four days later, on February 23, 1616, the Qualifiers unanimously declared both propositions to be "foolish and absurd" and "formally heretical."  Less than two weeks later, Pope Paul V--described by the Florentine ambassador as "so averse to anything intellectual that everyone has to play dense and ignorant to gain his favor"--endorsed the theologian's conclusions.  The Pope, according to the Inquisition file, "directed the Lord Cardinal Bellarmine to summon before him the said Galileo and admonish him to abandon the said opinion; and, in the case of his refusal to obey, the Commissary of the Holy Office is to enjoin him...to abstain altogether from teaching or defending this opinion and even from discussing it."...]

[In 1990, Ratzinger, in a speech in Parma, Italy stated that  


"At the time of Galileo the Church remained much more faithful to reason than Galileo himself. The process against Galileo was reasonable and just."

[In 1992, the investigation was completed and he made his public apology to Galileo that the Vatican was wrong and Galileo was right. “The Vatican's formal acknowledgement of an error, moreover, is a rarity in an institution built over centuries on the belief that the Church is the final arbiter in matters of faith… Pope John Paul II himself has said that the scientist was ‘imprudently opposed.’"  Photo  John Paul’s public apology to Galileo also demonstrates his openness and transparency.] http://www.nytimes.com/1992/10/31/world/after-350-years-vatican-says-galileo-was-right-it-moves.html  


Resuming original letter below:



In addition, Ratzinger was acting in direct opposition to Pope John Paul II’s prime directive of not separating science and religion searching for truth that led to his apology to Galileo 1992. What is so surprising is how Ratzinger was able for 27 years to keep his constant antigay activity, operations from arousing any suspicions to reach Pope John Paul. This could only have been pulled off with the same precision like skill of the systematic organization that was involved in the 30 years of the child sexual abuse cover-ups shrouded secrecy and obscured in the lack of transparency that independent investigations found all led back to Benedict XVI. Photo http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2013/04/sexual-repression-and-pornography.html

I came out after attending the New Ways Ministry National Symposium to tell the truth about the science of early childhood psychological development regarding growing up gay that was shared by the US Bishops, Pope John Paul and the New Ways Ministry. However, at the age of 47, I was still subjected to the cruel and unusual treatment, by someone in authority in Vatican, to submit to being [sent away to be] re-educated on sexual orientation of homosexuality [i.e. a form of reparative/conversion therapy]  that was completely inconsistent with John Paul and his group on homosexuality. 
Photo http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2012/09/nazis-treatment-of-homosexuals-re.html
And my not submitting led to losing many benefits and eventually the lost of my regular salary. Who then, in the Vatican, was responsible for this malicious and unethical directive that I be [sent away to be] re-educated on homosexuality [i.e. a form of reparative/conversion therapy]? The only other person, besides John Paul, in the Vatican who had the authority and ability to cover-up his illegal mistreatment was Cardinal Ratzinger. Ratzinger eventually had significantly silenced and removed everyone who in 1997 had publicly supported the science of early childhood psychological development regarding growing up gay.  (1) I refused to submit to being reeducated and then I was the target of ongoing vindictive attacks meant to silence me by destroying my reputation and credibility for the past 15 years.  
(2) In the October 1997, Ratzinger had the New Ways Ministry’s co-founders work condemned. 
NOTIFICATION OF THE CONGREGATION FOR THE DOCTRINE OF THE FAITH
May 31, 1999 Concerning
[...In the Ordinary Session of October 8, 1997, the Cardinals and Bishops who make up the Congregation judged that the statements of Father Nugent and Sister Gramick, which had been identified through the above-mentioned procedure of the Regulations for Doctrinal Examination, were in fact erroneous and dangerous...]


(3) A year later, Ratzinger altered the document “Always Our Children.”  

[...In July 1998, the Committee on Marriage and Family of the U.S. bishops' conference reissued a letter to parents of homosexuals, "Always Our Children." At Ratzinger's demand, the bishops added a footnote describing homosexuality as "objectively disordered" and deleted a passage that encouraged use of terms such as homosexual, gay and lesbian from the pulpit in order to "give people permission" to discuss homosexuality...]


Ratzinger had always had a significant influence in the selection of who becomes a bishop, and especially after becoming Benedict XVI. Since, 1997 and 2012 there is a major difference in the US Bishops’ attitude and authoritative understanding of homosexuality, and especially in the recent years before US Election 2012. He had successfully changed the structure of the US Bishops from pro-gay children in 1997 to completely antigay in 2012. (4) And at the

death [2005] of Pope John Paul II, becoming Benedict XVI he removed all the scientists from the group that John Paul had commissioned to work with theologians on homosexuality. This also validated his disregard of the importance of science related to the sexual orientation of homosexuality. (5) It is interesting to note, that one month later Benedict XVI appointed Walter Hurley an auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese of Detroit, Michigan to the Diocese of Grand Rapids as bishop.  Grand Rapids is my home diocese.
(6) It is important to note that Walter Hurley had previously worked with Cardinal Ratznger, in 1987, investigating the New Ways Ministry. (7) Also, Cardinal Maida of the Archdiocese of Detroit, Michigan worked with Ratzinger investigating the New Ways Ministry. (8) It is an interesting connection among Ratzinger, Hurley and Maida related their connection to the New Ways Ministry and my “coming out” in March 1997 shortly after I attended the New Ways Ministry National Symposium.  
(9) Including the fact that Hurley, Maida and I all reside in Michigan, which made it convenient for them to initiate the casting aspersions against me and my intention, as documented in the research on Hunthausen (p282). Conflict in the Catholic Hierarchy: A Study of Coping Strategies in the Hunthausen Affair, with Preferential Attention to Discursive Strategies” by Timothy Peter Schilling 2003 (http://igitur-archive.library.uu.nl/dissertations/2003-0206-111237/c6.pdf(http://igitur-archive.library.uu.nl/dissertations/2003-0206-111237/inhoud.htm).

Dear --- ----,

My name is Fr. Marty Kurylowicz, a Roman Catholic priest from the Diocese of Grand Rapids Michigan ordained June 16, 1979.

In March 1997, after attending a National Symposium of the New Ways Ministry that was held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I learned [from Dr. Richard Isay's keynote address] that children as young as 4 and 5 years of age know that they are different. 
This feeling "different" is only identified in their adult years as being gay. However, the harmful influence of antigay social and religious norms -- in particular, for Catholics, the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings -- are severe and last throughout a child’s lifetime. The harmful effects are not isolated only to these children who grow up to be gay, but also affect their families, siblings, friends and anyone whom they might consider special in their lives. They are a prescribed societal sentence of implicit isolation, which place at risk of suicide so many innocent adolescents and young adults. They stifle an enormous amount of human potential in the world that otherwise could be put to use for finding cures for diseases, offering better ways of maintaining peace among people and improving the quality of life for everyone in the world.

Being Homosexual: Gay Men and Their Development, 
By Richard Isay, M.D., 1989, 2009 
Chapter 2, Childhood and Early Homosexual Identity 
http://books.google.com/books?id=37K3mBxtQE4C&printsec=frontcover&dq=richard+isay&hl=en&sa=X&ei=EACEUaTcE3iyAHV9YDIBQ&ved=0CDQQ6AEwAQ 

After the New Ways Ministry National Symposium in March 1997, in good conscience I felt intensely morally obligated to "come out" as a gay Catholic priest to my parishioners at Holy Family Parish, Sparta, Michigan USA, to draw public attention to this implicit form of child abuse. This abuse is caused by the harmful influence of antigay social and religious norms, in particular, for Catholics, the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings. My background study in this area is extensive, far beyond that of the average person. However, since I have come out, I have been subjected to overt as well as covert retaliation coming from the Vatican through the bishops of the Diocese of Grand Rapids. I was ordered to be sent away to be re-educated regarding sexual orientation, to subject myself to conversion or reparative therapy--not a lobotomy, but similar. I refused to consent to this inhuman treatment because of the obvious clinical research data. And because I did so, in retaliation I lost my regular priest salary for the past 13 years, my earned sabbatical terms and my status for any future assignments in the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA.

At the same time, an insider to the Vatican warned me that I could really get hurt severely by people in the Vatican. And even though this person was dead serious, I passed this warning off as being someone’s overactive imagination that was a bit bizarre. I thought, "After all, this is the USA, what do I have to fear?" However, this covert retaliation has been substantial. My car was repossessed in July 2009 and on June 26, 2010, I lost my home to foreclosure.

It seems no one wants to touch my case because it deals with the Catholic Church (although, in the last several months, the credibility of the Vatican has fallen considerably with regard to the decades of cover-ups of child sexual abuse cases). My case is about protecting children as young as 4 and 5 years of age. The 2009 amendment to the Federal Hate Crimes Law of 1969 does not seem to cover my type of situation, although it is a type of implicit hate crime. Unfortunately, there is not enough legislation out there to deal with most non-violent discrimination based on sexual orientation, nor enough legal precedent (especially with an entity like the church). It was mentioned to me that possibly Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress (IIED) and/or some employment law claims could apply.

It comes down to the fact that there are no US civil laws to protect me (a gay out Catholic priest) in my defense to protect children as young as 4 and 5 years of age. It seems clear that lawyers are often scared of taking on entities that seem more powerful than the legal system and/or cases with no real precedents. Not only do they have to worry about not winning after all the effort they put in (including hours of research, writing memos/briefs, etc--which is all hard when there's not much precedent), but they have to worry about—as I would think--being silenced and harming their careers. I can easily realize that there are risks going up against powerful entities. The religious element of my case makes it difficult for lawyers. Most lawyers would probably not be Catholic and don't really understand the Catholic Church, how it works or what they'd be getting themselves into. This is probably especially true for organizations more geared towards LGBT and other civil rights. A lot of LGBT people are not Catholic for the obvious reasons of mistreatment and my situation seems like it could be a complex intersection of various legal issues as well as religion--probably several things most LGBT/civil rights lawyers don't really know a lot about.

If I do say so myself, I think that my case could be a watershed that frees everyone, because the reason for my coming out was specifically based on the lifetime psychological harm caused to children as young as 4 and 5 years of age who grow up gay (LGBT). Evidence of such psychological harm has been heavily documented through accredited scientific research for the past several decades. Including scripture cannot be used to condemn homosexuality any more than it could be used to condemn Galileo. These are facts and cannot be disputed by intelligent people. It would be about children worldwide who grow up gay (LGBT), which takes the issue of sexual orientation out of the adult arena, making gay civil rights (gay marriage) a must--who wants to deny children their civil rights? I only know this from my experience with coming out in a Catholic parish. People calm down almost immediately when you talk about children growing up gay (LGBT)--in part, I think, because many people can identify with this fact.

I am asking for monetary compensation for the past 13 years for the financial hardship caused, the unnecessary setbacks in advancing my education, as a priest and the damage to my reputation making it impossible for me to support myself, leaving me destitute. If the Vatican wanted to remove me from the priesthood, they should have done it immediately after I came out in March 1997. But they did not do this, likely because they did not want to fight the global publicity that they were against gay priests – even if gay priests remained faithful to their vow of celibacy. Instead, they let me continue on for 8 years before removing my faculties for cerebrating mass publicly in any Catholic Church - mainly because I would be allowed to continue to preach if they did not remove me, June 2006. It has been rumored by a priest that and likely my bishop that I was given more than 5 years to get on my feet to leave the priesthood. But I had no intention of leaving the priesthood. They were making it impossible for me to stay in the priesthood, but I had no intention of leaving the priesthood. Why would I leave the priesthood? It would completely destroy - the reason why I risked my life, to come out as a gay Catholic priest, to protect children worldwide, to help stop the severe implicit form of child abuse caused to children as young as 4 and 5 years of age worldwide by the Vatican unsubstantiated antigay teachings (as stated in the 2nd paragraph above). The Vatican would then be allowed to continue unchallenged in harming children worldwide in much the same way as the Vatican has been allowed to continue for decades worldwide to cover-up of the child sexual abuse cases.

I am seeking a legal cause of action to pursue, monetary compensation for the retaliatory treatment I have received and financial assistance for starting the Thalamus Center. The Thalamus Center is an educational international interactive web site on human sexuality to combat the severe lifetime psychological harm caused by unsubstantiated antigay teachings, in particular that of the Vatican. It is ignorance of human sexuality that is so harmful to children and world peace. The Thalamus Center is being designed on a similar format as that of National Public Radio, NPR web site. The Thalamus Center is focused on two areas of human sexuality from science (biology, physiology, psychology, etc.) and religion (all religions, ancient sacred texts, etc.) – operating 7 days a week, reporting, interviewing, and referencing researchers, scholars, theologians, including archiving data, listing all LGBTQ&I resources and addressing related current news media issues. The Thalamus Center would be employing a full time staff of 9 professionals, including related support staff members.

Is there any help for me?
