SEXUAL ORIENTATION is less about sex and more about LOVE, being one with another human being. Attachment Theory - - LOVE & RELIGION - Fr. Marty Kurylowicz
Nothing in life is more precious than the intimate relationships we have with love ones. Healthy love relationships delight us give us confidence to take on challenges and support us in difficult times.
Being a priest and a clinical psychotherapist one hears many very different sides of human sexuality, which are under the seal of confession or is professionally confidential. Besides my own extensive search and struggles for knowledge and understanding of human sexuality, in truth, one learns that clarity about human sexuality is not absolutely established or clearly defined there is much confusion, if people would be honest. This confusion seems to create a considerable amount of self-doubt and unrest. In addition, not discussing sex openly to learn more about the truth of human sexuality only generates more anxiety, tension and separates people. However, for the sake of our children it needs to be intelligently, exhaustively and openly studied and explained.
Sexual orientation is an enduring emotional, romantic, sexual, or affectional attraction toward others. It is easily distinguished from other components of sexuality including biological sex, gender identity (the psychological sense of being male or female), and the social gender role (adherence to cultural norms for feminine and masculine behavior)...
Sexual orientation is different from sexual behavior because it refers to feelings and self-concept...
From science we learn not the precise moment that a person’s sexual orientation is set whether heterosexual or homosexual, except that it is set very early in life either just before birth or very soon after birth (Jack Drescher, MD).
Attachment theory has been researched by John Bowlby M .D. and Mary Ainsworth Ph.D. observing infants beginning at about 10 months of age discovering the significance of the formation of early childhood attachments having lasting effects throughout a person's life.
Attachment is an emotional bond to another person. Psychiatrist, John Bowlby was the first attachment theorist, describing attachment as a "lasting psychological connectedness between human beings" (Bowlby, 1969, p.194).
Nothing in life is more precious than the intimate relationships we have with love ones. Healthy love relationships delight us give us confidence to take on challenges and support us in difficult times...

Impending rules on gay priests create Catholic divide
By Charles Honey,
The Grand Rapids Press, October 8, 2005
When the Rev. Martin Kurylowicz came out to his Sparta parish eight years ago, he said he had struggled for years with his homosexuality.
The Catholic priest says the struggle would be made harder for many others if the Vatican issues new rules that reportedly would ban gays from becoming priests…
…"I sizzled when I read it," said Kurylowicz, 55. "It's very hurtful, is what it is. In this day and age, there's no reason for it. It sends a message that there's something wrong with gays."
Kurylowicz said he spoke out then to raise awareness of violence against gays and teach others homosexuality is not a choice but an inborn trait. Church leaders still don't understand that and contribute to gays' poor self-esteem, he said…
…"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? "…

Violence of “Foot Binding” & Sexual Repression
Homophobia & Violence
The Vatican’s antigay teachings are unsubstantiated, this is plain fact. It is not debatable, it would be like debating Galileo about whether or not the earth is revolving around the sun. This would be considered quite insane. This would truly be a fierce “intrinsically” and “objectively” disordered suppression of the truth. And no matter how much the Vatican wants to demand that it be not so - it cannot be done
(http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2010/09/pope-described-as-so-averse-to-anything_920.html). Homosexuality is not a matter of debate - but of educating people on the truth, the reality of human sexuality. Regardless, how many people globally want to follow Benedict XVI and his curia in their delusional thinking about homosexuality, like with Galileo - it will not cause the sun to revolve around the earth. It will, however, because it is a severe form of child abuse that is continuous throughout the early childhood years and beyond causing tremendous violence to the lives of children that as adults, it tends to be a self-perpetuating violence inflicted onto others, thus increasing the violence in the world. The victim, as a child of abuse becomes the aggressor as an adult. Photo
This type of child abuse is most inhuman, because it is denying a child of the natural need “to love and be loved” that is even more severe than foot binding. “Foot binding is the custom of applying painfully tight binding to the feet of young girls to prevent further growth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_binding & http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=8966942 & http://articles.latimes.com/2012/apr/16/world/la-fg-china-bound-feet-20120416).” Benedict XVI and his curia are prime examples of being victims of severe sexual repression of homosexual feelings and attractions that like with “foot binding” starts early childhood “who grew up with authoritarian parents who forbade such desires Photo
Who would I be serving by obeying Benedict XVI -
Instead of protecting Children, 1997?
If I had remained silent, in 1997, about my sexual orientation and completely forgot my moral responsibility and human empathy to protect children, I could have avoided all the violence directed towards me from Benedict XVI for the past 16 years. However, according to this kind of sociopathic thinking, because I choose to stand up for the truth to protect the lives of children and prevent the self-perpetuation of violence - I am being blamed for all the vindictive attacks made against me. “The message is this: you wouldn’t have so many problems if you were less…YOU (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/gender-and-schooling/201207/stop-blaming-the-victim-changing-gender-paradigms-safer-schools-2).”
Who would I be serving, if I remained silent about the truth of sexual orientation in 1997 and the violence being inflicted on children by the influence of unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms, i.e. the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings? I have always tried earnestly to build my life on truth. When I have made mistakes in the past, I’ve always tired to quickly own up and admit it, make amends and then begin again. I just was never good at lying, it is not that I am virtuous in this regard. I simply cannot remember consistently long enough that I told a lie, the what, how, who, when, and where I told it. This all creates tremendous anxiety trying to remember, including the nagging fact that I am a dishonest person, which all dissipates, once I just own up to the truth.
My silence in 1997, certainly would not be serving God by my ignoring the wealth of factual knowledge of a lifetime I acquired (through, academic studies, lectures, APA National Conventions, spiritual direction, personal psychotherapy, parents of LGBT children, LGBT university student and community centers) and refusing to protect children. For me to obey then Cardinal Ratzinger in 1997 (presently Benedict XVI) I would have had to disregard truth completely and the violence being done to children. This is the direct opposite of what God is all about. This is the very source of the deception and corruption that penetrates the Vatican‘s curia and beyond, which you are seeking to reform (http://www.npr.org/2013/06/13/191377106/popes-reference-to-gay-lobby-broaches-taboo-topic & http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2013/06/12/pope-francis-laments-gay-lobby-and-corruption-in-vatican-report/ & http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/13/pope-francis-reform-church_n_3075838.html). It is shocking even to imagine that I would be serving Benedict XVI’s fierce “intrinsically” and “objectively” disordered suppression of the truth about homosexual sexual orientation uncaring about the human lives, especially the lives of children that are destroyed
(http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19861001_homosexual-persons_en.html & http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2013/04/sexual-repression-and-pornography.html). For me to keep silent for Benedict XVI and his clerical supporters, so that I could have lived a comfortable life for these past 16 years, would be like selling my soul to the devil. Because my life would no longer be building on truth. It is frightening to think what kind of life this would have been for me, possibly, quite similar to and ending up like many of the members of the curia did repressing the truth about their human sexuality (http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2012/12/j-edgar-hoover-homophobic-men-repressed.html & http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2013/04/sexual-repression-and-pornography.html & http://www.npr.org/2013/06/13/191377106/popes-reference-to-gay-lobby-broaches-taboo-topic & http://ncronline.org/blogs/ncr-today/vaticans-gay-lobby-round-two & http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2012/10/benedict-xvi-character-assassination-of_3.html). What saved me from not ending up like the Vatican’s curia and Benedict XVI, is that I searched for the truth, spent time in prayer and the scripture.
...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 Vatican 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: Photo
“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 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.

Protect Religious Freedom – but not Tyranny in Religion - June 20, 2011
The way to begin for us all, not only the NY State Senators, to protect Religious Freedom and not Tyranny in Religion is by obtaining a well-informed conscience. We start by individually approaching and studying in (great detail because it involves the lives of children) from the best and the brightest (1) scripture scholars regarding the references related to homosexuality and (2) scientists in the field of study of human sexuality, in particular, but [not] limited to, the onset of sexual orientation. The prerequisite to the formation of a well-informed conscience is making a thorough study of all sides of the issue from all available authoritative data and research, including opposing views. Then in this way we are better equipped to decide who and what needs government protection in regards to the gay marriage bill. This exhaustive procedure follows to the letter the Gospel quotation about the “plank” and the” speck.”
“How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye”. Luke 6:42
The “plank” for us is ignorance.If we satisfactorily resolve this ignorance, then together we will be able to see more clearly, whether or not, as NY State Senators (government officials) and as citizens we are colluding with the Catholic Hierarchy and are harming children, as was found to be the case in the Ireland Murphy Report.
…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…

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 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.
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 theDiocese 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?
