The Adjustment Bureau 
(movie) 2010--- Excerpt:

D. Why do you want to keep us apart?
R. Because the plan says so.

D. Then you misread the plan.
R. There is no misreading the plan when it comes to you and Elise.

D. Then the plan is wrong.
R. Do you know who wrote it?

D. I don’t care. 
R. You should.
    You should really show a little respect. 

D. If I’m not supposed to be with her, 
     how come I feel like this?
R. It doesn’t matter how you feel. 
                   What matters is 
    what is in black and white.

D. But, you don’t know why I am not supposed
     to be with her, do you?
     That’s why you can’t tell me. 
     You don’t know.

D. ...I don’t care what you put in my way, 
     I’m not giving up...

    ...   ...   ...   ...

D. Why do you people care who I love?

D. I know what I feel for her and 
     it’s not going to change.

D.  All I have are the choices I make.  
     And I choose her come what may...



We must walk united with our differences: 
there is no other way to become one. 
This is the way of Jesus.
Pope Francis - 9/19/13


Love is constant. It never changes. No matter with any two people who fall in love regardless, heterosexual, homosexual, transsexual, or any combination thereof, love remains the same. This was an enlightening experience to realize working with a variety of couples. The joys, the sense of wonder, of being one with another, as well as, the frustrations, the difficulties, of intimacy, of trusting, forgiving, and growing  together are the same for all couples. Love never changes, it always remains the same for every human being. The old saying, appears to be true for any two people  in love that you “Can’t live with them, can’t live without them.” For me, it has been the most profound and unique privilege to be invited into the intimate and private lives of couples professionally, both as a psychologist and as a priest. To be able to witness that love with all its life giving qualities, as well as, the difficulties, struggles and sacrifices involved in actively being in love with another human being, are exactly the same for any two people in love. When it comes to love, true love is independent of sexual orientation and gender. True love never changes. Love is readily identifiable through time, across all cultures and in every individual human being. We also know, from research data that human beings from the very beginning of life will not survive without love. Love is essential for human existence. It is the lack of love that causes a disruptive rippling affects throughout a child’s lifetime. 

The cruelest, the most inhuman action to take against any human being is to decide from birth that some human beings will never be allowed to fall in love, to be held, to embrace and to feel as one with another. And to have their every thought, while growing-up, about being in love with another, repulsively scorned and degraded as “intrinsically evil” and “objectively disordered” is demonic, the absence of love - of God. It is monstrous to treat any child in this heartless manner. It forces a child out of overwhelming fear, to live in a self-imposed isolation that is lethal, detached from any meaningful connection with other human beings. Is it any wonder, why some gay youths commit suicide, being constantly subjected to the kind of ridicule that cuts into the very core of a person? And no one is there to protect these gay youths. At least this is the way it has been for the past 32 years under Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.

Restoring the Dignity of Every human being

Though, a most surprising break from those past 32 years came directly from our newly elected, Pope Francis. Privately, out of the blue, at the request of this gay youth, Pope Francis made a personal call to him and reassured him that he is loved and valued and that being gay was not a problem. No news media was involved when the call was made, by Pope Francis, nor would there be. Photo

Because Pope Francis responded to the private concerns of this male gay youth, as a pastor. This means that even though, the seal of confession would most likely not apply to this situation, however, Pope Francis would treated it as if it did apply, in deference to the level of trust that this gay youth had in him in order to confide his personal concerns to him. It is never easy to confide personal concerns to anyone, however, it may at times be extremely difficult to confide them to a priest, I would think most especially if that priest happens to be the Pope. 

The reason for making this long explanation above is to explained that Pope Francis  would not have made this call for any publicity reasons.  The only way we learned about this phone call is from the gay youth own admission that Pope Francis had indeed called him.  Notice, when Pope Francis confirms that he did make a phone call, in his interview dated  9/19/13, he never mentioned anything discussed on the phone or even that the youth was gay ( 

Speculating, I would think that Pope Francis only admitted making the phone call likely because he is aware of his position as the pope and the kind of impact it may have had on this gay youth, likely completely shocked, dazed, stupefied, etc. He, of course, would have wanted to share this unexpected and extraordinary event he had with Pope Francis with others, who wouldn’t. However, possibly in sharing, because even to the rest of world, it seemed unbelievable - everyone around him may have thought him to be delusional, crazy, even mentally unbalanced and some attributing it to his being gay, in any case most people would believe that he made the whole thing up, including the news media. If this may have been the case, Pope Francis would have wanted to restore the credibility of this young man, though not to draw any attention to himself personally or to violate the confidentiality. Regardless, of the above speculation, Pope Francis unexpectedly demonstrated how we are to be Christ to those in need and to one another. 

It is completely unprecedented that a pope would do this for one gay youth. However, in reality it really should not be unprecedented, at all, because that is the very essence of what it means being a Christian. “To love one another as I have loved you” is the one command that comes personally from, Jesus Christ, to all his followers. Pope Francis clearly gets its and according to documentation, he got it for the past 30 - 40 years. 

Pope Francis was caught off guard doing this good deed that he did in private. If the person he called never said anything, we would never have known about this event. For many of us, we have not seen this kind of sincere love for someone, by a major global leader i.e. Pope Francis, in a very, very long time, if ever, especially, reaching out to someone that many in the world though wrongly considers to be the least. 

Though, we may not have seen this example of love extended to a gay youth, by other major world leaders that doesn't mean it hasn’t happened, because it would have been private - not for public display. However, we have witnessed major world leaders, including politicians, and governors in the USA - many of whom risked their jobs to come out and stand up for gay marriage and for the families involved, especially for their children. Tony Blair in 2009 even challenged Benedict XVI to rethink his ideas about homosexuality. The same year, Nancy Pelosi, (our first woman to be) the Speaker of the House, courageously fought to the get the Hate Crimes bill to include sexual orientation passed ( ). Photo

Pope Francis is the first pope to publicly be supportive of gay (LGBT) people and gay priests - unprecedented. However, he follows after the first, President of the USA, Barack Obama, including the first Vice-president, Joe Biden, who publicly came out in support gay marriage, which was unprecedented, but completely unexpected. What is interesting about these three world leaders - is their love and respect for children. This is a trait that is found in nearly every governor and politician in the USA who at great personal risk came out in public support of Gay Marriage - they all had a deep love and respect for children. Photo

However, with Pope Francis, after 32 years of the most obsessive global antigay crusade, makes his whole situation quite astounding and unbelievable. it wasn't a movie. It happened in real time and it was not done for the news media. It was not a PR stunt to gain favorable publicity to make up for the years of the criminal neglect of children by the Vatican. Because, it was empathically denied by the Vatican of the phone call ever happening, disparaging the credibility this gay youth, simply because he was gay. This continued until Pope Francis, in his interview released on September 19, 2013, reaffirmed that he did indeed make the telephone call to this gay youth ( Pope Francis explained that he did it in answer to the letter he received from this gay youth, which he said was so simple and beautifully written. 

Anyone, who cares about children and the youth like Pope Francis, sounds like "good people" to me. Anyone, no matter how important or busy they may be, who like a parent, is keenly aware when, a child, a youth needs reassurance and without so much as, a second thought, instantly makes the child his top priority for immediate attention, sounds exceptional to me. The whole world can wait, because the needs of children, and of youths come first, before all else. As startling, as it is to actually witness this kind of act of love for children and youths, it should not be the exception, but rather the norm of human behavior. The world would be a better place for everyone, if it was indeed the norm.  Most regrettably, for the past 32 years, this was so not the norm, in fact, the complete opposite was the norm of the Vatican. Photo

We have seen some extraordinary world leadership, including from many of our governors and politicians - all finding the courage to stand up for love - for all that is true and good and loving. They stood up for the love of gay (LGBT) people, especially for children. I do not think these people should ever be forgotten, because they like Pope Francis reminds us all around the world, of the importance and the power of love - it means everything.

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, 
but do not have love, I am only 
a resounding gong or 
a clanging cymbal. 

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all 
mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have 
a faith that can move mountains, 
but do not have love, 
I am nothing. 

If I give all I possess to the poor and 
give over my body to hardship 
that I may boast, but 
do not have love, 
I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, 
it is not proud.

It does not dishonor others, 
it is not self-seeking, 
it is not easily angered, 
it keeps no record of wrongs. 

Love does not delight in evil but 
rejoices with the truth. 

It always protects, always trusts, always 
hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. 

But where there are prophecies, 
they will cease; 
where there are tongues, 
they will be stilled; 
where there is knowledge, 
it will pass away. 

And now these three remain: 
faith, hope and love. 
But the greatest
of these is 
1 Corinthians 13

The Absence of LOVE

Obsessive Antigay Crusade 
Why? To serve whom?  For what purpose? 

Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s obsessive antigay crusade, for the past 30 years, was erroneously based on the bible (e.g. Galileo) and completely void of any authoritative scientific data. This is what is truly “intrinsically evil” and “objectively disordered.” Photo

It doesn’t make sense that a person, a priest, a renown academic professor of his scholarly intellectual capabilities, would have known that his antigay teachings had no solid grounding in scripture, or in the emerging science on homosexual orientation.  It is an unexplainable resonating bleep in Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s personality that is so contradictory, so inconsistent. It is a red flag indicating something is not right that needs to be explained. 


How can someone be so intellectually gifted and then all of a sudden be clueless on the subject of homosexuality, as it relates to scripture and science?  Then making such  obvious, inaccurate statements regarding homosexuality, publicly and being clueless about the potential harm and violence that such unsubstantiated antigay statements  would cause to people, including children, around the world. It does not make sense, especially, for someone holding the two top positions of power in the Vatican. Something is wrong. Who benefits? Is there more than one reason for this implicit, unacknowledged holocaust of gay people lasting the past 32 years? Photo

The emerging science on homosexuality had already started coming together in the 1950s and 1960s. And continued, reaching a significant level of authoritative data that led to the APA in 1973, reclassifying homosexuality, as a normal and natural part of human sexuality. And yet, this emerging science on homosexuality, sexual orientation and human sexuality continued expanding and coming forth throughout the rest of the 1970s and well into the 1980s to the present day.  And yet in 1981, Ratzinger/Benedict XVI beginning his career in the Vatican, he was oblivious to this substantiated research data on homosexuality from the previous 3 decades and the impact it had on the lives of millions of human beings, globally. 

Instead, he turned directly in the opposite direction of love, true love.  He cold-heartedly and expeditiously began a systematic and intense unsubstantiated antigay crusade from the Vatican that lasted the past 32 years, uninterruptedly. Why? For what reason? Who gains from this travesty of God’s love. He began his antigay crusade covertly designed to exterminate every gay (LGBT) person off the face of the earth. A disguise of the complete absence of God, dehumanizing human beings. It was the entrance of the core of evil that eventually devastated the world destroying millions of human lives and far beyond just gay (LGBT) people. Photo
Ratzinger/Benedict XVI 
Dehumanization - Promoting 

Ratzinger/Benedict XVI mirrored, for the past 30 years, to the world, particularly to the greediest, how to disguised their global human atrocities under false labeling of goodness. And it was copied “to a T.” Often with legislation that is meant to help the poor or protect children, the elderly and minorities by the time it gets passed has often been so water down with add-ons, stipulations, exemptions that it ends up with an impressive label of caring that is almost meaningless. So, the label makes it looks like the poor, the elderly, children, and minorities are being cared for though in actuality very little has been done e.g. “No Child Left Behind Act,” Hate Crimes Bill, the requirement that psychotherapy sessions be covered by health insurances, etc. The presumed thought appears to be a little help, assistance, protection, etc. is better than nothing. The title of any piece of legislation is not indicative of the actual description what is in any particular law passed. It tends to be no more than “high tech” hypocrisy.  It appears that this can, presently, be found in the USA government “shut down” in October 2013. It is centered around “Obama care” by a small group of politicians demanding endless add-ons and stipulations be added, the same watering down tacit used endlessly in the pass 30 years, making it less effective. In the end, it is the poor and children who are left out to suffer and die. This is quite similar to the tactics used by Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and the Vatican i.e. child sexual abuse cover-ups, delaying all lawsuits, presumably allowing enough time to pass that the victims go broke and or die off. This small group of politicians causing government “shut down” seriously limiting the services to the poor, elderly, children, etc.their efforts are clearly seem to center on greed. Though, often such immorality in the US government is backed by a false notion of christianity of self-righteousness and lukewarmness - the absence of God. But it so closely mirrors Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s dehumanizing antigay crusade also in the name of god. Photo

If ever we needed a Pope Francis and those USA Nuns of Charity (that Benedict XVI  2012 had silenced because they were not obsessively preaching against Gay Marriage and spending all their time helping the poor) we need them now. But as Pope Francis said from the start of his papacy that he cannot clean up the Church alone.  Everyone is needed to humanize the world again. 

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience 
to remain silent.

Dehumanizing Gay (LGBT) People

The amount of substantial authoritative documentation on homosexuality, already accumulated by 1981, would have been enough information for someone of lesser intellectual giftedness to have halted an intensely pervasive antigay crusade.   It would be halted because of the blatant indication from all this documentation of the possible life threatening harm that it could be causing to millions of people, globally. However, as the harm to the lives of children, youth suicides and the violence inflicted human beings became ever more evident from the authoritative research data, even then Ratzinger/Benedict XVI did not subside his antigay crusade, in the least. 

He even fought against the United Nations efforts to include homosexuals,  sexual orientation under the protection of human rights act. Photo

In 1997, I learned (i.e. from my post graduated studies at the University of Michigan, at APA National Conventions, New Ways Ministry National Symposium, Richard Isay, etc., as I explain In my letter dated February 10, 2013) the facts related to the severity of the kind of lifetime harm caused to gay children growing-up through their early childhood psychological developmental years, who are subjected to the influence of these unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms.  

But what was absolutely appalling is that these antigay norms were and continue to be fueled by the unsubstantiated antigay teachings promoted incessantly by the Vatican coming directly from Ratzinger/Benedict XVI ( His and his hierarchy antigay crusade was never more evident than in the couples of years leading up to the USA Presidential elections of November 2012, according the unending news media reports. They seriously cross the line of the separation of church and state in the USA fighting against gay marriage. 

During this time, extremely more intensely than his previous 30 years, instead of teaching the value of every human being, Ratzinger/Benedict XVI was teaching how  to dehumanize groups of human beings, as being subhuman not deserving of the human and civil rights shared by the rest of humanity. He aimed his systemic dehumanizing tactics against homosexuals (LGBT), however, because he had absolutely no authoritative data from the bible or science for his violence against gay people (LGBT), he only stressed the point, globally, that any group of human beings can be dehumanized for any reason. It was irrational global violence aimed against  gay (LGBT) people, regardless, who suffers or dies. It is sad to state, that irrational violence seems it is being mirrored exactly by the small group of politicians causing the government “shut down.” 

Gradual Decline of the Dignity of Human Beings 

It is an interesting fact that Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s obsessive antigay crusade for the past 30 years (1981-2013) dehumanizing gay (LGBT) human beings promoted endlessly by his false propaganda was paralleled by the gradual decline of the dignity of human beings not only in the USA, but also globally, as the value and importance of making a profit increased. It started in USA in the 1980s with the dissemblance of work unions, and the beginning of the endless deregulations of laws protecting free market trade. 
How to Lie - & - Get Away With it - & - Become Compulsively RICH 

It was followed by 1990s downsizing of employees from the work force in the USA. The explanations given for this drastic cut of millions of jobs were blurred and confusing that it had something to do to save money and to better compete in the global market. But this was not the truth, downsizing, as with the endless mantra the “rising cost of health care” were all lies. The cost of health care was not on the rise, but greed was on the rise, an enormous amount of greed that keeps increasing, endlessly. The downsizing was hardly noticed by the general public, at first, that  there was no downsizing of jobs. Because these vacant USA jobs were then being outsourced to third world countries for a mere faction of cost in wages and health care benefits. 

It was all part of a well designed systematic plan of not only dehumanizing workers in the USA but of exploiting workers in third world countries i.e. akin to slave labor.  This global dehumanization continued throughout the 2000s, but not before leading us into a war under false pretenses.

During the past 30 years, when Communism ceased to be a national threat and could no longer be used as a fear tactic,dehumanizing Gay marriage filled that void. Attacks against gay marriage was on the rise, which were, also, dehumanizing attacks against all gay (LGBT) people. These antigay attacks were used as a political wedge to usher certain people office in the 1990s and 2000s. Though mostly all antigay statements were homophobic in nature and it was proven so by a considerable number of politicians making these antigay statements were found having sex with men in public restrooms, parks, etc. (, not all antigay statements were of a homophobic nature, many, as it is now clear to see were used and are being used to preserve and to gain more power and money, at the expense of human lives, globally. This fact has become more evident as the public antigay tide began receding, as the public turned their support for gay marriage. 

Pope Francis - Vatican Bank 
Ending - Money Laundering 

It is the worst form of corruption using people to gain power and use even more people. Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s close tries with the Bush family and their 2 USA presidencies, including the thick lack of transparency, the money laundering connected to the Vatican Bank, Pope Francis decided to make a clean break from the past by publishing the first ever annual report of the Vatican Bank

Authoritatively - Renouncing 
Vatican's unsubstantiated antigay teachings
Ending “How To” Dehumanize 

Unless the unsubstantiated antigay teachings of the Vatican are renounced immediately they will remain “a how to” dehumanize any group of human beings.

But they cannot be renounced in the authoritarian manner, in the way, they were forced on people. They must be renounced authoritatively. It is not an issue of voting whether or not the Vatican's unsubstantiated antigay teachings should be renounced or not. That would be just as foolish as taking a vote on whether or not Galileo was right or not. 

It is an issue of teaching people why the Vatican's antigay teachings are unsubstantiated and how they cause life threatening harm to children, which is why they need to be renounced immediately.  This type of authoritative teaching can begin as soon as, possible, because the renouncement of the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings is a long process. It involves guiding people through education of the facts of homosexuality from both scripture and science, then allowing people to form their own consciences. It is a longer, more tedious process, however, the most effective process. Because it allows for the back and forth exchange of thoughts and ideas from everyone and everyone grows in this process. Because in the end this is a process of LOVE, true love, which is never easy or ending, it is timeless. It is the process of respecting and learning from every human being. The renouncing of the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings happens through this education process. 

“Top-down” and “Bottom-up” 
Global Communication

This can be done today, through a responsible use of the Internet and websites. It is instant global communication. It can effectively be organized to provide 24/7 of the continuous flow of “top-down” and “bottom-up” communication with anyone and everyone in the world, as it is revolving around the sun. Key, essential to this global effort - it needs to be guided by what seems to be Pope Francis’s trademark - his respect for the differences of all people, his demonstrated sense of inclusiveness i.e with Eugenio Scalfari, the atheist founder of the Italian newspaper La Repubblica 10/1/13 ( Including, his primary concern of working together building a better world for everyone and not attempting to convert anyone, as he stated in his interview with Eugenio Scalfari. Photo

I am positive that Pope Francis would not find that he would be alone in this unprecedented endeavor to raise the dignity of every human being. I would be totally dedicated to such an arduous undertaking, as he would be surprised to find would be the norm from people all around the world, not to mention an endless number of Jesuits. It certainly would bring the world to Pope Francis’s door step and with the technology of the Internet, the ability to learn about, even meet them unfiltered by the curia. 

This process above not only helps to renounce unsubstantiated antigay teachings of the Vatican - it mirrors an effective process for learning and resolving problems  essential for all leaders, church, government, parents, teachers, bosses, etc. 

It, also, teaches every human being how to solve complex problems in life, how find answers, how to learn to love and find love.

"It is a sin to tell a lie

It would be interesting to wonder what life would have been like had Ratzinger/Benedict XVI used all the time, money and energy that he spent on his obsessive global unsubstantiated antigay crusade for the past 32 years and instead spent it all on teaching a solid truth that has never been disputed - that "it is a sin to tell a lie." He would instead had an anti-lying crusade for 30 years, never saying a word against gay people. Well, of course, if he had to tell the truth, he could then never have said a word against gay people. If more people were promoted to tell the truth, how would the world possibly have changed? 

(1) Would there have been a "government shut down?" 

(2) Would we have gone to war under false pretenses?  Would 9/11 even ever have happened in the USA? 

(3) Would there have been the global devaluing of human beings over profits? 

(4) Would there have been the endless problems with the "rising cost of Health Care" that left millions of people uninsured in the USA? Would Obama Care even have been necessary? Would there be more trees standing because there would be much less paperwork needed? 

(5) Would we have always been in a never ending recession for the past 30 years? 

(6) Would the price of gasoline keep rising? 

(7) Would we still be dependent on oil? 

(8) Would we have found a cure for cancer? Would there be a lot less stress in the world?  

(9) would there be a problem of human trafficking? 

(10) Would there have been the enormous number of child sexual abuse cover-ups? 

(11) The Vatican's unsubstantiated antigay teachings would have been renounced decades ago. 

(12)  Would there have been a lot less violence in the world and more people in love?


It's a Sin To Tell a Lie
Be sure it's true when you say I love you
It's a sin to tell a lie
Millions of hearts have been broken
Just because these words were spoken
I love you, yes I do, I love you
If you break my heart I'll die
So be sure it's true
When you say I love you
It's a sin to tell a lie
Be sure it's true when you say I love you
It's a sin to tell a lie
Millions of hearts have been broken
Just because these words were spoken
I love you, yes I do, I love you
If you break my heart I'll die
So be sure it's true
When you say I love you
It's a sin to tell a lie

It looks like Pope Francis is serious about cleaning up the Catholic Church - 10/3/13
In some respects, the Catholic Church is like any giant, multinational organization. It has some amount of corruption, bureaucratic dysfunction, even crime. But it's also a religious institution, which we generally (and rightly) hold to higher ethical standards than, say, Coca-Cola or ExxonMobil. The Catholic Church is also different in that its chief executive, the pope, has more control over his organization than any CEO.
Since his election in March, and especially in the past few months, Pope Francis has really shaken up the tone and timbre of the church, particularly in its attitude toward controversial issues like gay marriage and abortion. And people have noticed. Even observers prone to be more critical of the Holy See, like The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, are cautiously welcoming a new morning at the Vatican. On Wednesday, President Obama shot some praise the pope's way, too.    "I have been hugely impressed with the pope's pronouncements," Obama told CNBC, when asked...

Vatican reportedly threatens legal action after artist photographs gay couples kissing inside churches - 9/29/13
Spanish artist Gonzalo Orquin created a photo series featuring images of couples in love—both gay and straight—kissing inside churches in Rome. The Vatican reportedly sent a letter to Orquin’s gallery, threatening to fight back if the photos were put on public display...
“I am a Catholic. I believe in God deeply,” Orquin told The News in an email. “I think if you look closely at my pictures no one can find blasphemy or sacrilege. A kiss is a gesture of love, of tenderness between human beings.”
The photo series was part of a larger exhibition that focused on the theme of marriage. Orquin said he created a large-scale painting representing the wedding night. He also constructed an installation about the memory of marriage in the past, using hundreds of vintage pictures, sounds, and video. But the last part of the work was the most controversial...

Extending his departure in style from his predecessor, Benedict XVI, Francis vowed in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that he would do everything in his power to change that view. Photo
“The church is or should go back to being a community of God’s people, and priests, pastors and bishops who have the care of souls, are at the service of the people of God,” he said...

Pope Francis’s Rough Road to Reform - 10/3/13
...The G-8 cardinals are also expected to visit some of the church’s broader issues, including whether or not divorced Catholics can marry without the tedious procedure of securing an annulment.   Francis has made it clear that he isn’t so interested in a parishioner’s past, even hinting in a lengthy interview in September with Jesuit publications that confession can pave the way for broader forgiveness. Right now, a woman who is divorced or who has had an abortion is not allowed to take communion in Catholic mass. “I also consider the situation of a woman with a failed marriage in her past and who also had an abortion. Then this woman remarries, and she is now happy and has five children. That abortion in her past weighs heavily on her conscience and she sincerely regrets it. She would like to move forward in her Christian life. What is the confessor to do?” he asked the Jesuit journalist.
In another far-reaching interview, this time with Eugenio Scalfari, the atheist founder of the Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Francis ruffled feathers by calling his predecessors and many church leaders “narcissistic.” “I don’t like the word narcissism, it indicates an excessive love for oneself and this is not good,” the pope told Scalfari. “The real trouble is that those most affected by this—which is actually a kind of mental disorder—are people who have a lot of power… Heads of church have often been narcissists, flattered and thrilled by their courtiers. The court is the leprosy of the papacy.”
The comment was no doubt aimed at those who have driven the church to the brink of disaster...

Pope Francis Accepts Gay Priests - 2013 - & - Benedict XVI Bans Gay Priests – 2005

Impending rules on gay priests create Catholic divide

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? "

Vatican bank tables first-ever annual report - 10/1/13

     The Vatican bank published its accounts for the first time on Tuesday, showing that its earnings in 2012 were 86.6 million euros ($117 million), four times higher than in 2011...
      ...Pope Francis set up a pontifical commission in June to inquire into the IRO bank's behavior after decades of secrecy and intrigue.
     The bank was once a main investor in the failed Banco Ambrosiano. Its chairman Roberto Calvi was found hanging from a bridge in London in a suspected murder by mobsters. No one was ever convicted...

Secretive Vatican Bank Publishes First-Ever Financial Accounts - 10/1/13

The Vatican bank published its financial accounts for the first time in its 126-year history, reflecting Pope Francis's push for greater transparency at the secretive and scandal-plagued institution...

...The Vatican bank has been trying to overcome decades of scandals, most notably the 1982 collapse of Banco Ambrosiano, in which it was a main shareholder. Then-Banco Ambrosiano Chairman Roberto Calvi—who was called "God's Banker" because of his ties to the Vatican—was found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in London that year. Foul play was suspected, but nobody was ever convicted...

The Institute for Religious Works (IOR) has been dogged by accusations of corruption.

The report shows 2012 was a successful year for the bank, with net profits more than quadrupling to 86.6m euros...
...In August Pope Francis stepped up the fight against corruption at the Vatican by strengthening supervision of financial transactions at the bank.
   He issued a decree designed to combat money-laundering and prevent any financing of terrorism.
The Pope also recently set up a commission to investigate the bank and report back to him personally...


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...

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 the earth revolving around the sun and no matter how much the Vatican wants to demand it be not so - it cannot be done 
( 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 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 ( & &” 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 (” 

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 ( & & 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
( & 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 ( & & & & 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 werePhoto

“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?
