Catholic bishops oppose discrimination in letter opposing anti-discrimination bill - 11/4/13
Three prominent Catholic prelates—Bishop Stephen Blaire of Stockton, CA, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, and Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore—have made it known that they plan to “work with leaders and all people of good will to end all forms of unjust discrimination, including against those who experience same sex attraction.” This they said in a letter mailed to US senators.
What’s that now? Are US bishops taking Pope Francis’s message of focusing on poverty rather than homosexuality to heart? Are Catholic bishops going on-the-record in support of the marginalized and oppressed? Is this a sign of a new era in US Catholicism, the one heralded by lefty Catholics who have expressed unabashed hope in the new pope?
...Catholic bishops apparently feel that discriminating against LGBT people in the workplace is not only just, but in fact, not being able to do so threatens their religious liberty. So the USCCB is appealing to lawmakers to vote against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)...

Vatican’s Unsubstantiated Antigay Teachings 
Harms Everyone
Self-perpetuating violence - Generation after Generation 

Sexual Orientation Continuum
By Fr Marty Kurylowicz

The truth about sexual orientation continuum is that approximately 90% of the human population are homosexuals and at the same time approximately 90% of the human population are heterosexuals. This is because, in the middle of the sexual orientation continuum, approximately 80% of the human population are bisexuals meaning they have varying degrees of both heterosexual and homosexual sexual orientation. This is likely why so many people emphatically state that homosexuality is a choice. Sure, it is a choice if you are bisexual, but even if bisexuals choose to be only heterosexually active, they never lose the homosexual part of themselves. However, it is not a matter of choice for approximately 10% of the human population who are totally heterosexual and 10% of the human population who are totally homosexual, which is on either end of the sexual orientation continuum. Photo more

The children growing up bisexual are equally traumatized by the social environmental influence of the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms. The lifetime destructive harm caused to gay children growing up, also happens to bisexual children. Therefore 90% of the human population of all children growing up are severely harmed by unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms i.e. Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings (like Galileo) obsessively crusaded by Benedict XVI for the past 32 years. The fact is that the children who have been shielded from the social environmental influence of the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms, do not experience any of the lifetime traumatizing effects as the children who have not been shielded.

The unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms i.e. Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings are ruthlessly dehumanizing children beginning in early childhood  and lasting throughout their lives.  They destroy the core essence of a human being, the ability to love and to be loved, which is the function of sexual orientation. The Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings destroys a child's ability to feel one with another, which is the formation of foundation empathy, to understand and share feelings of another i.e. joy, fears, pain, etc. Destroying a child’s ability to empathize with others - is in fact to raise a sociopath, who will only know how dehumanize and to use others for selfish gain. 

The unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms i.e. Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings has the potential of ruthlessly dehumanizing 90% human population of children that becomes self-perpetuating. These children not only suffer the traumatizing effects of this severe type of covert child abuse, but as adults they perpetuate the same dehumanizing treatment on to children and adults, forever increasing the violence in an already violent world. Who benefits from this self-perpetuating social phenomena of violence? Likely anyone involved in selling war equipment or involved in war profiteering. However, this type self-perpetuating violence will continue endlessly generation after generation, until the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings are renounced. 

Benedict XVI, beginning in 1981 to 2013, not only obsessively promoted the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings, he also had significant influence, for the past 32 years, in choosing who would become a member of hierarchy i.e. bishop, cardinal. Benedict XVI chose only those who supported the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings without question and who pledged unconditional obedience to him. Benedict XVI managed after 32 years to create the largest homogeneous population, in the curia and the hierarchy, that is fanatically committed to an untruth i.e. Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings that perpetuates violent sociopathic behavior in millions of millions of children. Benedict XVI antigay crusade, a long with lockstep following of the hierarchy he appointed, is entirely not built on any truth whatsoever and therefore is void of love and human empathy for others. It was a matter of time that the corruption of such a solid sociopathic group would implode on itself, as did revealing extensive corruption. 


Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI)…efforts to prevent the evolution in church teaching toward acceptance of homosexuals - a timeline beginning 1984 - Milestones in campaign to hold the doctrinal line - National Catholic Reporter, July 30, 1999


Pope Francis has warned, on September 30, 2013:

The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently.
“We have to find a new balance,” the pope continued, “otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.”
&


This has been quite evident to observe in the reports coming the fall conference of United States Catholic Bishops that the they did not heed Pope Francis’s warning, regarding gay marriage and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).

Ignoring & Attacking the Pope - 11/12/13
There are a variety of different ways to attack the pope, or to minimize what he has to say, or otherwise ignore the direction in which he is trying to guide the Church...

Senate Approves Bill To Add Sexual Orientation To Work Protections - 9/7/13
The Senate has approved the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which gives workplace protections to workers and job applicants who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. The bill would apply to any private employer that has more than 15 employees; it includes an exemption for religious groups...

Workplace discrimination against gays at turning point in the Senate - 9/4/13
...The Employment Non-Discrimination Act goes to the heart of a core value — that people who work hard and perform well on the job ought to be rewarded based on their work and nothing else. The legislation would extend employment discrimination protections that now cover race, religion, gender, national origin, age and disability to include sexual orientation and gender identity. It would prevent employers and labor unions, among others, from using sexual orientation or gender identity as the basis for decisions such as hiring, firing, promotion or compensation...

17 years after defeat, Senate advances gay rights bill - 11/5/13
WASHINGTON — The Senate moved forward Monday on a bill to prohibit workplace discrimination against gays and lesbians in a dramatic 61-30 vote. But opposition from the House speaker means the bill may not get to President Obama's desk...
...The bill's sponsor, Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., said Democrats won over last-minute Republican votes by promising to allow their amendments. Ayotte and Portman want stronger language on religious liberty and a non-retaliation provision that would prohibit governments from taking action against religiously affiliated groups.
That's a concern of social conservative groups. Faith and Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed said he opposes workplace discrimination, "but this bill opens a Pandora's box of assaults on religious freedom, litigation, and compliance costs for businesses and non-profits that will be a nightmare."
Catholic bishops also oppose the bill. "No one should be an object of scorn, hatred, or violence for any reason, including his or her sexual inclinations," said a letter to the Senate from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. However, the bishops said the definition of "sexual orientation" was too vague, could include other forms of sexual conduct and would legitimize same-sex marriage...

Update: This afternoon, the Senate passed ENDA by a vote of 64-32. Though the vote suggests strong bipartisan support, ENDA is expected to face an uphill battle in the House, with Speaker John Boehner refusing to support the bill...
The current ENDA proposal will still provide exemptions for institutions whose "purpose and character are primarily religious."

With the ongoing of firings of gay, lesbian and transgender employees of Catholic institutions, it may appear that church organizations are the only workplaces where LGBT people still face discrimination...

                                    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 the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. Photo

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...   Photo

Benedict XVI's Antigay Crusade - 32 years 
Dehumanization in USA 

It is an interesting fact that Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s obsessive unsubstantiated antigay crusade for the past 32 years (1981-2013) dehumanizing gay (LGBT) human beings promoted endlessly 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. 

Epicenter

In the USA, Ratzinger began in 1981, his obsessive antigay crusade despite the authoritative emerging science on homosexuality of the previous 2 decades that led the American Psychiatric Association, APA removing homosexuality as a mental disorder, it also rendered his antigay teachings as unsubstantiated. Cardinal Ratzinger’s unilateral decision to disregard this vital, life-and-death, authoritative data on homosexuality, was a public act, the epicenter of global criminal dehumanization of innocent human beings, including children. He obsessively repeated his unsubstantiated antigay statements publicly for the next 32 years, without hindrance. No one stopped him. Those who attempted to stop him or challenged him, we learn were abruptly silenced or removed that was heavily publicized throughout the 1980s. 

Political Wedge 

It is from here, 1981 that all the corruption of the Vatican originated and or was enhanced to the extreme, until it started to implode in on itself. It is also from here that the world dehumanization, devaluing human beings began to flourish, because Cardinal Ratzinger’s unsubstantiated antigay crusade was politicized. For the entire length of Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s career in the Vatican, 32 years, USA Republican politicians have been in public unison with his unsubstantiated antigay teachings condemning gay (LGBT) people. They consistently used these unsubstantiated antigay teachings, as a political wedge, dehumanizing the same group of  innocent people, including children for the past 32 years - to help usher certain people into political offices. 

Anyone, in the USA running for political office has the resources to be ethically responsible in researching the authoritative facts on homosexuality from science and the bible, before speaking publicly on homosexuality.  The fact that the majority of Republicans spoke out condemning homosexuality, does not speak well of the level of the moral integrity that exists among the members of Republican Party who are in office. 

Though in the recent past, 2010 - 2011, there have been a few courageous Republican politicians who put their jobs and lives on the line - standing up for gay people, voting for gay marriage. They did so (1) publicly and (2) going against the antigay stance of the Republican Party, for the sake of the lives of children. Once, the authoritative facts are thoroughly research on sexual orientation, homosexuality, especially the harm caused to very young children by the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms, it is hard turn one’s back on this truth. They heroically demonstrated the dignity and integrity that once existed in the majority of the members of the Republican Party.

Senator Bob Dole made the statement that in the 1950s and 1960s, both political parties had their definite differences, but they could come together and workout their differences, resolve issues and move forward for the sake of the country. It was a different time, a more humane time in the USA history. Though it seems that there is a recent return to these times. 


Most Republicans, evangelicals support ENDA - 11/5/13
With seven Republican senators and all 55 Democratic senators publicly on board, it now seems likely that the Senate will debate and vote this week on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would ban employment discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation. If the bill moves forward, it would represent the newest effort since the 1970s to address the issue and the first time since 1996 that the Senate has given the legislation an up-or-down vote...
Read more:


Anyone, Republican or Democrat, condemning a group of innocent people, including children to get into elected office clearly speaks of a person who is not about integrity, but about extortion and avarice. This the same DNA that is found in the corruption of the Vatican’s curia and bank. Other people have used Ratzinger’s unsubstantiated antigay crusade as a moral sanctioning for further dehumanization tactics for selfish profit i.e. child labor, slave labor, human trafficking, etc. 

Sway - USA Catholics - Antigay

At the start, 1981, Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s obsessive antigay crusade exploded in the news media. It has been reported that he did this to establish his position and authority, beginning with his long drawn out (over a decade) investigation of Archbishop Hunthausen of Seattle. 

Though, it is denied and no mention is made of it in the investigation, there is strong indication that the reason for the investigation of Hunthausen was related to Reagan’s buildup of nuclear weapons and Hunthausen public stance against it. 

The focus of the investigation was on doctrinal issues and disapproved of Hunthausen supporting and allowing gay (LGBT) people to have mass in the Cathedral i.e. Dignity, gay Catholic group. Whether or not Hunthausen has being investigated because of his antinuclear public stance, at the request of Reagan's administration, Ratzinger’s antigay crusade remained intact and consistent. Throughout the 1980s, there was a string public silencing and removing notable theologians who were openly discussing the emerging science on homosexuality. Then in 1986, Ratzinger’s releases his letter titled ”PASTORAL CARE OF HOMOSEXUAL PERSONS.” This title is not indicative of the contents of his letter. It would have been more accurately titled the “dehumanization,” and “abandonment” of and disciplining those who in the Church were caring for homosexuals, particularly during the height of the AIDS crisis in the USA. From then on right up to 2013, he continued his constant global dehumanization tactics by publicly promoting the discrimination against gay people, though always cloaked in the same deceptive terminology, as above, but in reality theses tactics were a complete dissociation from the reality of God’s love. The intensity of Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s unsubstantiated antigay crusade notably increased around the USA Election campaigns, specifically designed to sway the Catholic population in the USA to vote for the candidates who were antigay. Here it is blatantly obvious that (1) Cardinal Ratzinger and as Benedict XVI was teaching people that it is permissible to dehumanize their fellow human beings, (2) by voting for politicians, who also are dehumanizing their fellow human beings, into office and (3) when they are in office these same politicians can continue dehumanizing even greater numbers of human beings, including those who voted them into office. What is so frightening in these 3 situations listed above are the complete absence of human empathy and contagion effect to willingly dehumanize millions of human beings and worst they call it God’s will. 

Paralleling
Downsizing, Outsourcing, Exploiting 

Paralleling, Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s dehumanizing obsessive antigay crusade, in the USA began at the same time 1981 with the building up of nuclear weapons, the disassembling of work unions i.e. air traffic controllers’s union and the beginning of endless financial deregulations of laws protecting free market trade. In the 1990s, the USA initiated the Gulf War and the downsizing of corporations and companies that began the gradual process over time of eliminating millions of USA jobs and outsourcing these jobs to third world countries for a mere fraction of the wages and benefits, if any. In less than a decade, the endless financial deregulations allowed for the legal (1) downsizing of USA jobs leaving millions of human beings unemployed without health insurance, the outsourcing of USA jobs (2) exploited millions of human beings in the third world countries and the (3) people who still had jobs in the USA had their workloads increased due downsizing and had to accept decreases in their wages, benefits, including retirement pensions. Almost, as fast as, instant global communication, millions and millions of human beings around the world are simultaneously being dehumanized, instant global dehumanization. This global dehumanizing process continued on from the 1990s and throughout the 2000s, including leading the USA into a war under false pretenses that is still ongoing 2013. Photo

WAR
 Bush & Ratzinger
Condemning Gay People

During the past 32 years (1981-2013), while Ratzinger/Benedict XVI continued his obsessive unsubstantiated antigay crusade that paralleled with the gradual dehumanization tactics in the USA, there is evidence that he had relationship with the with the past 3 USA Republican Presidents, a total of 20 years. However, in those 20 years, his relationship would have been mainly with the Bush family, the father was vice president for 8 years with Reagan 1981-1989 and then as president the next four years  and his son was president from 2000-2008.

Cardinal Ratzinger relationship (though denied) is related to the Vatican's connection with Reagan’s administration displeasure with Seattle’s Archbishop Hunthausen’s public stand against President Reagan’s buildup of nuclear weapons. There evidence that the FBI was monitoring  Archbishop Hunthausen’s activities, because of “his public stand against nuclear weapons (http://igitur-archive.library.uu.nl/dissertations/2003-0206-111237/inhoud.htm)." Ratzinger did authorize an investigation of Hunthausen that began in 1983, however, there was no mention of his anti-nuclear weapons stance in any reports.  But close advisers to Hunthausen insisted that the investigation was triggered by Reagan’s administration and the Vatican. Though it is denied that the US government granted the Vatican diplomatic status that includes diplomatic immunity, January 1984, for the Vatican's their cooperation with dealing with Hunthausen’s public antinuclear weapons stance through the efforts of Ratzinger. Ratzinger’s antigay crusade was able to camouflage any intent of the Reagan’s administration war efforts in wanting to silence Hunthausen from making public antinuclear weapons statements. 

“War Profiteering” & Antigay Crusade 

There is an overriding coincidence of the allegations of “war profiteering” made against all 3 men of the Bush Family: Prescott Bush, an international banker, US Senator, the father of President Bush Sr. and grandfather of President Bush Jr. Before and during WWII, Prescott Bush was an international banker and his perceived business association with the Nazi Germany were quite lucrative and considered to be the solo source of the Bush family fortune. Allegations of “war profiteering” were made against Prescott Bush (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2004/sep/25/usa.secondworldwar).  The same allegations of “war profiteering” were made against President Bush Sr. for authorizing the ”Gulf War” 1991 and against President Bush Jr. for his authorization of the “War in Iraq,” which the USA entered under false pretenses. The “war profiteering” allegations made against the two Bush presidents were related to oil production and their financial interests in “Carlyle” - a company dealing with furnishing war supplies from equipment to personnel. This coincidence also extends to the close relationship the 2 Bush presidents had with Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, who was raised in Nazi Germany during World War II and a member of Hitler Youth.

Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion. General Principles
In June 2004, five months before the U.S. presidential election, Cardinal Ratzinger sent a letter to Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, D.C., and Bishop Wilton Gregory of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on the question of whether it is permissible to deny communion to Catholic politicians whose positions on abortion and other issues contradict church teachings.
          Congregation for the Doctrine Of the Faith
Cardinal Ratzinger served as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which oversees Roman Catholic Church doctrine, prior to his appointment as pope. The following documents were issued by the Congregation during his tenure.
1. Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on the Collaboration of Men and Women in the Church and in the World (July 31, 2004)
This letter speaks to the "active collaboration" between men and women in society, the family and the Church.
2. Considerations Regarding Proposals To Give Legal Recognition To Unions Between Homosexual Persons (July 31, 2003)
This document emphasizes the protection and promotion of marriage as the foundation of the family and the stability of society.
3. Doctrinal Note: The Participation of Catholics in Political Life (January 16, 2003) This Note is directed to the bishops of the Catholic Church and to "Catholic politicians and all lay members of the faithful called to participate in the political life of democratic societies." Photo

Vatican Instructs Legislators On 
Gays Backing Marriages Called 'Immoral' 
Washington Post, August 1, 2003
          The Vatican fired a booming shot yesterday in the rapidly escalating political battle over gay marriage, issuing specific instructions for Catholic lawmakers to oppose any effort to give legal status to homosexual unions.
          According to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith – the Vatican's agency for policing Roman Catholic orthodoxy - "the Catholic law-maker has a moral duty to express his opposition [to gay marriage] clearly and publicly and to vote against it. To vote in favor of a law so harmful to the common good is gravely immoral."
… Both documents came from the Vatican bureau headed by the conservative Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger…

Bush's appeal to the Vatican – June 25, 2004
          …When Bush rejected the Vatican's moral criticism of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq a year ago, he was criticized for not listening to the pope. Now, however, that Bush has solicited the Vatican's help on "culture of life" issues, especially the anti-gay marriage push, he's blasted for mixing religion with politics.
          This perhaps goes to show that where one draws the line on church/state separation often has a lot to do with what one thinks of whatever the church, or the state, has to say.
          … in a June 4 meeting with senior Vatican officials (not in his private encounter with John Paul II the same day), Bush, according to a Vatican source, said that "not all the American bishops are with me" on cultural issues. My sources said the president particularly had in mind a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman…

          …He [Bush] pleaded with the Vatican to pressure the bishops to step up their activism against abortion and gay marriage in the states during the campaign season.
          About a week later, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger sent a letter to the U.S. bishops, pronouncing that those Catholics who were pro-choice on abortion were committing a “grave sin” and must be denied Communion. He pointedly mentioned “the case of a Catholic politician consistently campaigning and voting for permissive abortion and euthanasia laws” — an obvious reference to John Kerry, the Democratic candidate and a Roman Catholic…
          …In 2004 Bush increased his margin of Catholic support by 6 points from the 2000 election, rising from 46 to 52 percent. Without this shift, Kerry would have had a popular majority of a million votes...moved into Bush’s column on the votes of the Catholic “faithful.” Even with his atmospherics of terrorism and Sept. 11, Bush required the benediction of the Holy See as his saving grace. The key to his kingdom was turned by Cardinal Ratzinger…

Salvaging Democracy after Election 2004 – by  Douglas Kellner
…Likewise, conservative "pro-life" Catholic bishops wrote letters to their parishioners articulating anti-Kerry and pro-Bush positions. Thus, below the media radar, there was something like religious revivalism that turned out the Christian right for Bush. One of the shocking revelations that soon came out was that during the highly contested and close 2004 US presidential election, “then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger wrote a letter to U.S. bishops while the campaign was in progress, instructing them to deny Communion to any Catholic candidate unwilling to criminalize abortion. Ratzinger's letter did not win anything close to unanimous agreement, even among the American bishops, yet he succeeded in creating a public question about John Kerry's status as a Roman Catholic. The shift among Catholic voters in 2004 was small in absolute numbers — President Bush increased his support among Catholics by 6 points from 2000 to 2004 — yet, according to one analyst, it was large enough to turn the election in Ohio, Iowa and New Mexico. Arguably, then, Ratzinger won the election for Bush."

“Ryan challenged my own view of the conflict handling in three key ways. First, he was much more ready to attribute the cause of the visitation to some hidden arrangement between Rome and the Reagan government that resulted from Hunthausen’s controversial stance on nuclear weapons. Ryan cited three reasons for believing this to be true: (1) the visitation came very close in time to the American government’s granting of diplomatic status to the Holy See (in January of 1984); (2) a visitation of another “peace” bishop, Bishop Walter Sullivan of Richmond, Virginia, took place at approximately the same time as the Seattle visitation (though in a much quieter, less publicized fashion); and (3) the Holy See’s representatives in the Hunthausen case seemed to “protest too much” when denying that the Seattle visitation had anything to do with Hunthausen’s position on the nuclear arms question.” p 330

Ratzinger, Reagan/Bush, Hunthausen and Gay Rights - 4/19/05
...It was Ratzinger who laid the groundwork in the early 1980s for the crackdown of the Liberation Theology movement, which sought to identify the church more closely with the struggles of the poor. And it was Ratzinger who, in 1985, silenced Franciscan Father Leonardo Boff, arguably the most prominent proponent of efforts to put the church on the side of the Latin American workers and farmers who were seeking a fairer distribution of the region's resources, a fuller democracy and a brighter future for their children...
...Ratzinger led drives to punish moral theologians who embraced religious pluralism and encouraged dialogue within the church. Liberal Catholics in the U.S. well remember Ratzinger's moves to undermine American bishops who sought to find a place in the church for gays and lesbians such as Archbishop Raymond Hunthausen of Seattle, who was also a leading critic of the Reagan administration's support for military juntas and death squads in Latin America...

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.

...And when I heard what Pope Benedict XVI said about homosexuals and transgendered human beings at Christmas 2008, I felt that same trauma all over again. Because in some way, somehow, he was conveying in a non-verbal manner the horror of the Holocaust, in what appears to be a traumatized, trance-like, accepted social norm from that period of time dictating that some people just don’t count, aren’t important, and can be easily disposed of. And if you rock the boat, you could be next to be disposed of.

I truly have to believe that a person in his position would not be doing this consciously or intentionally. The horror of the Holocaust is like an atomic bomb with fallout so extensive that it spreads over a radius of more than 150 miles. The horror of the Holocaust began in 1933 and ended in 1945. The psychological fallout would have been far more extensive and more deadly, especially when it is not identified as such...

Vatican’s Unsubstantiated Antigay Teachings 
Harms Everyone
Self-perpetuating violence - Generation after Generation 



Global Dehumanization Spreads 
By Fr Marty Kurylowicz

The fact that the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings have intentionally been retained  intact despite the authoritative emerging science on homosexuality that had declared such  antigay teachings as null and void 32 years ago - makes retaining them a willful act of global dehumanization. This willful act of dehumanization is significantly compounded making it the ultimate crime against humanity and of God, because it comes from the Vatican. 


The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. 
Matthew 6:22-24


The venom from this core of evil at the center of dehumanization of the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings has been allowed to spread throughout the Vatican and on into every corner of the world. And like any deadly virus, as it spreads it is constantly dividing and mutating into endless insidiously aspects of evil that aggressively and violently attacking all forms of love trying to kill love off the face of the earth. Ratzinger/Benedict XVI obsessive public promotion of the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings globally life threatening severely harming the lives of all children and models globally by his example to the world, an approved method of dehumanization that can be used arbitrarily against any group of human beings, including children.

Protecting All Children 

The Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings globally are disruptive to not only gay children in their early childhood psychological developmental years, but to bisexual children, as well as. According to the sexual continuum of sexual orientation, the majority of human beings are bisexual. It is here where the confusion about homosexuality may come from, as to whether or not homosexuality is inborn, or a choice. Even though for bisexual individuals it may be a choice to chose to be homosexual, however, their choosing to be heterosexual does not obliterate that part of themselves that is homosexual. It remains alive and responsive. However, growing up, as a bisexual and being taught to hate and despised part of who they are is still significantly destructive to their safety and well-being. 

Vatican’s Unsubstantiated Antigay Teachings
Incapacity for Love - Lack of Empathy 

The dehumanization of the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings are disruptive to the very essence of what it means to be human, which is the ability “to love and to be loved” severely harming a child’s ability to form secure and lasting relationships throughout a lifetime (Attachment Theory). These dehumanizing unsubstantiated antigay teachings representing the best of the Catholic Church, instead of teaching children how to love and feel secure, they are in fact teaching children how not to love and to trust but to hate their natural feelings and expressions of love. A child then learns that to feel as one with another, which is essence of being human, is evil and to despise this essential basic human need to connect with another and to others. Are these children not then being taught how to be sociopaths? Are they not being inhumanly discouraged from feeling any human empathy for another human being. And they, as adults, will in turn inhumanly treat others in the way they were taught and treated (Child Psychopathology i.e. abused).

Vatican - Forcing Permanent 
Sexual Repression 

The dehumanization of the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings is a severe and unnatural form of complete sexual repression meant for life. Research has found that depending on the type and degree of intensity of sexual repression forced on children in early childhood years, is strongly related to a variety of sexual perversions: i.e. dissociative episodes/situations e.g. publicly professing antigay sentiments, privately having anonymous sex with multiple same sex partners,  public restrooms, parks, expressway rest stops, etc., despite the severe health risk. This is not unlike the closeted gay sex sandals of the curia in the Vatican. Other related sexual acting out behaviors that may or may not be dissociative episodes are various forms of sexual addictions i.e. pornography, strip clubs, bars, bathhouses, etc. This also includes the delayed and confused psychological sexual development of late adolescence that is related to the dissociated episode of sexual behavior between gay youths that is in no way related to pedophilia. These sexual perversions are directly related to the unnatural, under pain of mortal sin, form of permanent sexual repression authorized by the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings. 

Vatican Fuels
Gay Male Pornography Addictions

Gay male pornography is multibillion industry just like the human trafficking and the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings significantly fuels this industry. Not only fueling gay pornography but the Vatican’s sexual repression of heterosexuals fuels straight porn. 

In graduate school for psychology, a professor once said to me “the way we make love is the way that we do everything in life.” I believe he said it to me because I was a priest. He wasn’t being disrespectful, he knew I respected his expertise in the field of psychology. He made this statement to me was meant to inform me of something that I may not be aware of through experience, how  we human beings experience what it feels like to be one with another human being. The expression of our human sexuality is not limited to the privacy of the bedroom, but is openly expressed in our every waking moment, in everything we do and everyone we interact with throughout our lives. Our individual expression of our human sexuality is expressed through the filter of our own specific sexual orientation, which is set very early in life involving who and how we form attachments to others. The type of social environments in which, we are raised in has lasting effects throughout our lives in how we related to others. 

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...


“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.” Any inhuman disruptions, like Vatican's unsubstantiated antigay teachings, to a child’s developmental formation process of human attachments, during early childhood years i.e. unnatural forcing a lifetime of sexual repression, will negatively have an impact on the child’s ability to form secure and lasting relationships throughout the child’s lifetime. It will cause tremendous amounts of undue distress, which has been proven to lead to related to various physical and mental health problems, including to numerous forms of sexual addictions. In the name of God’s justice, the Vatican like the Tobacco Companies should be held responsible for the life-threatening harm and violence they caused to their faithful believers, beginning with as defensive children. The Vatican's unsubstantiated antigay teachings “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.”

In addition, the Vatican's unsubstantiated antigay teachings cause children, as adults, to be prone to a lifetime of sexual addictive behaviors that significantly fuels to the multibillion dollar sex industries, including helping to maintain the market of “supply and demand” for human sex trafficking. This is the same type of strategy that was proven that the Tobacco Companies used to ensure and increase their sales. The Tobacco Companies knew the life-threatening harmful effects of cigarette smoking that it leads to death and regardless of these facts, the Tobacco Companies still chemically enhanced the addictive effects of nicotine in cigarettes to increase their sales, and especially gearing their adversing to the youth to get them hooked on cigarette smoking, at an early age. 

Vatican’s silence, culpable ignorance, including obsessive suppression the emerging science homosexuality and their strong tendency towards being negative about all human sexuality fuels an unnatural form of sexual repression, especially of homosexuality all - fuels the multibillion dollar pornography and sex industries. 

Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings are worst than the Tobacco Companies. People really do chose to smoke, but absolutely no one choses to be male or female or heterosexual or homosexual or transgender or intersex. And yet each is created by God and God never makes junk. The Vatican by remaining ignorant or pretending to be ignorant about the reality of human sexuality creates a negative attitude about sex and condemns homosexuality and all variation of God given human sexuality that fuels an unnatural sexual repression that is simulated into sexual addiction. The Vatican fuels the multibillion dollar porn and sex industries that uses young people as sex models of all genders to be photographed, filmed and primped out and is the major cause of human trafficking. That is just the beginning of total massive human destruction that is caused by the Vatican.

Severe Dissociated State Of Mind From Homosexual Feelings

The question I asked myself was: what would it have been like for someone growing up gay during the Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933 -1945?
What would be the severity of the psychological effects on a boy who grew up to be gay in Germany during the time of Hitler’s NAZI PERSECUTION OF HOMOSEXUALS 1933 -1945? During the Nazi regime, homosexuals were publicly defamed and falsely accused for the major social problems of that time, which was done to incite massive public hatred and hostility directed against homosexuals. Homosexuals were used for medical experiments, physically mutilated, brutally tortured and exterminated.
Would this child, as an adult, in a severe dissociated state of mind from his own homosexual feelings (Harry Stack Sullivan MD, Dissociative Processes, Clinical Studies on Psychiatry (1956)), unconsciously perpetuate the terrifying horror of the insensitivity he had experienced growing up? If he found himself in a position of authority would he recreate the same social and political environment of violence and terror for homosexuals that he experienced, as a child who grew up to be gay, during the NAZI PERSECUTION OF HOMOSEXUALSPhoto

Anti-Gay Marriage - Rev. TED HAGGARD - "Evangelical Leader Denies Accusation of Paying Former Gay Prostitute for Sex" – Nov. 3, 2006
…Haggard may not be a household name, but he is a major figure in evangelicalism in the country, with a direct line to the White House.
His prominence is now threatened by Jones, who says he is a former gay prostitute and alleges that Haggard paid him for sex at regular intervals over a three-year period….
…He said he came forward when he learned Haggard and his church were backing ananti-gay marriage initiative on the ballot Tuesday in Colorado.
"I had to expose the hypocrisy. He is in the position of influence of millions of followers, and he's preaching against gay marriage," Jones said. "But behind everybody's back doing what he's preached against."

HAGGARD Pronounced ‘Completely Heterosexual – Feb. 7, 2007
Forced by a gay sex scandal to resign as president of the National Association of Evangelicals, the Rev. Ted Haggard now feels that after three weeks of intensive counseling, he is “completely heterosexual,” says an overseer of the megachurch Mr. Haggard once led…
Dr. Jack Drescher, a New York psychiatrist who is an expert on issues of gender and sexuality, said that while it was people’s prerogative to identify their sexual orientation as they wanted, the notion of being able to change that orientation was “not consistent with clinical presentations, but totally consistent with theological belief.”

            George Alan Rekers, of North Miami — the callboy's client and, as it happens, one of America's most prominent anti-gay activists…
            For decades, George Alan Rekers has been a general in the culture wars, though his work has often been behind the scenes. In 1983, he and James Dobson, America's best-known homophobe, formed the Family Research Council, a D.C.-based, rabidly Christian, and vehemently anti-gay lobbying group that has become a standard-bearer of the nation's extreme right wing. Its annual Values Summit is considered a litmus test for Republican presidential hopefuls, and Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter have spoken there. (The Family Research Council would not comment about Rekers's Euro-trip.)
            He has also influenced American government, serving in advisory roles with Congress, the White House, and the Department of Health and Human Services and testifying as a state's witness in favor of Florida's gay adoption ban.

LARRY CRAIG - Idaho Republican Senator -Arrested For Lewd Conduct In The Men'sRestroom  - June 11, 2007
In 1999 Craig became sharply critical of U.S. President Bill Clinton for the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Speaking on NBC's Meet The Press, Craig told Tim Russert: "The American people already know that Bill Clinton is a bad boy - a naughty boy. I'm going to speak out for the citizens of my state, who in the majority think that Bill Clinton is probably even a nasty, bad, naughty boy." Photo

LARRY CRAIG's anti-gay hypocrisy – Aug. 30, 2007
            If Larry Craig were held to the standard of sexual conduct he imposes on the U.S. armed forces, he'd be out of his job.
            Fourteen years ago, in his first term as a Republican senator from Idaho, Craig helped to enact the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. It stipulates:
A member of the armed forces shall be separated from the armed forces under regulations prescribed by the Secretary of Defense if one or more of the following findings is made and approved in accordance with procedures set forth in such regulations: (1) That the member has engaged in, attempted to engage in, or solicited another to engage in a homosexual act or acts unless there are further findings … that the member has demonstrated that—(A) such conduct is a departure from the member's usual and customary behavior; (B) such conduct, under all the circumstances, is unlikely to recur; … [and] the member does not have a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts.
            …According to the report filed by the officer who arrested Craig at the Minneapolis airport in June, Craig stood outside the officer's bathroom stall for two minutes, repeatedly looked at the officer "through the crack in the door," sat in the stall next to the officer, tapped his foot, and gradually "moved his right foot so that it touched the side of my left foot … within my stall area." Craig proceeded to "swipe his hand under the stall divider for a few seconds" three times, palm up, using the hand farthest from that side of Craig's stall. Most of these gestures, the officer explained, were known pickup signals in a room known (and hence under surveillance for) public sex. When the officer took Craig outside and told him so, Craig claimed he had been reaching down with his hand to retrieve a piece of paper from the floor. The officer wrote that no such paper had been on the floor…
            …I feel sorry for Craig. I hate the idea of cops going into bathrooms and busting people for coded gestures of interest. I'd rather live, let live, and tell the guy waving his hand under the stall to buzz off. But that's not the standard Craig applies to others. Any gay soldier, sailor, airman, or Marine who admitted to doing what Craig has admitted would, at a minimum, lose his job for violating DADT. In fact, many have been kicked out for less.
            Most people think "don't ask, don't tell" means that if you don't announce that you're gay, you can keep your job. It should mean that. But in practice, if you don't tell, the military can—and often does—investigate and interrogate you until you're forced to tell.

Why men like LARRY CRAIG continue to court danger in public places. Sept. 3, 2007
…safe to assume that many tearoom traders have a need, which they only imperfectly understand, to get caught. And this may be truest of all of those who are armored with "the breastplate of righteousness." Next time you hear some particularly moralizing speech, set your watch. You won't have to wait long before the man who made it is found…

Sexual Repression & Pornography 

Vatican's Ongoing Gay Sex Scandals
Sexual Repression and Pornography - Vatican's Ongoing Gay Sex Scandals - 4/17/13



Science Shows What Sexual Repression Actually Looks Like - by Marty Klein, PhD – 11/8/10
…As reported in the Journal of Economic Perspectives,
* The rates at which people buy pornography are not wildly different from state to state;
* States where people vote for conservative candidates buy more porn than states in which people vote for progressive candidates.
…According to credit card receipts from a national provider of adult entertainment, eight of the top ten pornography-consuming states went Republican in the 2008 election. And the trend goes beyond voting. For example, states where a majority of residents agreed with the statement "I have old-fashioned values about family and marriage" bought more subscriptions per thousand people than states where a majority disagreed. The same difference emerged for the statement "AIDS might be God's punishment for immoral sexual behavior."
And of course the state with the highest per capita purchase of online pornography is...Utah…

Red Light States: Who Buys Online Adult Entertainment? – by Benjamin Edelman – 2009
…this paper focuses on the consumption side of adult online entertainment,
and in particular on subscriber demographics and consumption patterns of those who subscribe to such websites. On the surface, this business would seem to face a number of obstacles. Regulatory and legal barriers have already been mentioned. In addition, those charging for access to adult entertainment face competition from similar content available without a fee. In the context of adult entertainment, free access offers consumers an extra benefit: online payments tend to create records documenting the fact of a customer’s purchase; consumers of free content may feel more confident that their usage will remain confidential. More broadly, measured levels of religiosity in American are high—for example, 68 percent of Americans state that the Bible is the actual word of God and is to be taken
literally, according to the National Election Survey. At the same time, social critics like Levy (2005) and Paul (2005) often argue that the rise of Internet pornography is contributing to a coarsening of American culture. Do consumption patterns of online adult entertainment reveal two separate Americas? Or is the consumption of online adult entertainment widespread, regardless of legal barriers, potential for embarrassment, and even religious conviction?

Essential Secrets of Psychotherapy: The Healing Power of Clinical Wisdom (Part One) - by Stephen A. Diamond, Ph.D. - January 6, 2012
…What we don't know can hurt us. The "unconscious," as Sigmund Freud professed, is the "unknown" or "not known." That portion of subjective experience, which is obscured, invisible to consciousness, at least "at the moment." It consists largely of the parts of ourselves we deny, dissociate, despise, denigrate, dread and generally repress. What we repress comes back to haunt us with a vengeance. Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche spoke of this phenomenon as "the return of the repressed." Denial or dissociation are repressive defense mechanisms, and serve some necessary function in terms of preserving mental health. But when some significant aspect of ourselves is chronically denied or dissociated (i.e., repressed and made unconscious), the proverbial chickens eventually come home to roost. If, for instance, someone always denies their anger, these feelings will some day resurface tenfold, especially under stress, though the reason for and intensity of their rage may be unclear  and inappropriate to the current circumstances…

Gland Inquisitor - Benedict's Antigay Tendencies new policy on gay priests” - Slate Magazine, Nov 29, 2005




Impending rules on gay priests create Catholic divide  
By Charles Honey, 
The Grand Rapids Press, October 8, 2005 
Photo - More

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? "

Ratzinger / Benedict XVI’S GAY OBSESSION Victimizing & Fighting Against Homosexuals Human & Civil Rights - Past 32 Years



Dehumanizing Homosexuals

Depriving Civil Rights – Human Rights

…We dehumanize our fellow human beings when we convince ourselves (or allow ourselves to be convinced) that they are less than human and come to believe that, although these people appear to be human beings like us, this is merely a façade. Beneath the surface they are really subhuman creatures, fit to be hunted down and destroyed. The immense destructive power of dehumanization lies in the fact that it excludes its victims from the universe of moral obligation, so killing them is of no greater consequence swatting a mosquito, or poisoning a rat. If dehumanization is a key factor in war and genocide, we ought to be working very hard to prevent it.

Psychology of Violence - David Livingstone Smith 2010

The way that Benedict XVI and the hierarchy are able to maintain this false notion about homosexuals is by publically dehumanizing homosexuals. It is their relentless condemnation of homosexuals using anti-gay propaganda trying to convince the public that homosexuals are less than human, are subhuman and therefore, homosexuals can be “excluded from the system of moral rights and obligations that bind humankind together ('Less Than Human' - by David Livingstone Smith 2011).”

What is it that enables one group of human beings to treat another group as though they were subhuman creatures?
…A rough answer isn't hard to come by. Thinking sets the agenda for action, and thinking of humans as less than human paves the way for atrocity. The Nazis were explicit about the status of their victims. They were Untermenschen — subhumans — and as such were excluded from the system of moral rights and obligations that bind humankind together. It's wrong to kill a person, but permissible to exterminate a rat. To the Nazis, all the Jews, Gypsies and others were rats: dangerous, disease-carrying rats…
Dehumanizing the enemy allowed German soldiers and officers to agree with the Nazis' new vision of warfare, and to fight without granting the Soviets any mercy or quarter."
…The Holocaust is the most thoroughly documented example of the ravages ofdehumanization. Its hideousness strains the limits of imagination. And yet, focusing on it can be strangely comforting. It's all too easy to imagine that the Third Reich was a bizarre aberration, a kind of mass insanity instigated by a small group of deranged ideologues who conspired to seize political power and bend a nation to their will. Alternatively, it's tempting to imagine that the Germans were (or are) a uniquely cruel and bloodthirsty people. But these diagnoses are dangerously wrong. What's most disturbing about the Nazi phenomenon is not that the Nazis were madmen or monsters. It's that they were ordinary human beings

Benedict XVI Fights Against Homosexuals Civil Rights

In this way, homosexuals can continually be deprived of their civil rights and therefore remain unable to defend themselves against the false accusations made by Benedict XVI and the hierarchy.

The data, which was presented to the U.S. hierarchy on the second day of their annual meeting here, also appears to contradict the widely held view that homosexuals in the priesthood were largely responsible for the abuse.
"What we are suggesting is that the idea of sexual identity be separated from the problem of sexual abuse," said Margaret Smith, a researcher from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, which is conducting an independent study of sexual abuse in the priesthood from 1950 up to 2002. "At this point, we do not find a connection between homosexual identity and an increased likelihood of sexual abuse."

There is no denying the fact that the worldwide system of covering up cases of sexual crimes committed by clerics was engineered by the Roman Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith under [Benedict XVI] Cardinal Ratzinger (1981-2005). During the reign of Pope John Paul II, that congregation had already taken charge of all such cases under oath of strictest silence. Ratzinger himself, on May 18th, 2001, sent a solemn document to all the bishops dealing with severe crimes ( “epistula de delictis gravioribus” ), in which cases of abuse were sealed under the “secretum pontificium” , the violation of which could entail grave ecclesiastical penalties...

Benedict XVI Fights Against Homosexuals Civil Rights


At the core of evil is the process of dehumanization by which certain other people or collectives of them, are depicted as less than human, as non comparable in humanity or personal dignity to those who do the labeling. Prejudice employs negative stereotypes in images or verbally abusive terms to demean and degrade the objects of its narrow view of superiority over these allegedly inferior persons. Discrimination involves the actions taken against those others based on the beliefs and emotions generated by prejudiced perspectives…

Hitler’s “final solution” of genocide of all European Jews began by shaping the beliefs of school children through the reading of assigned texts in which Jews are portrayed in a series of increasingly negative scenarios. At the end of these lessons in civics or geography, we see the “reasonable” discriminatory actions that Germans should take toward Jews.
This educational propaganda was intentionally designed to create a dehumanized conception of Jews among students by means of providing them with required texts that were colorful and visually told provocative narratives. Students from primary school through High School read these books…

Again in May 2011, Benedict XVI and hierarchy disregarded the evidence of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice - 5-Year Study by American Bishops – Roman Catholic Church Sex Abuse Cases, which found that the child sexual abuse decreased as more gay priests began serving the church” proving that homosexuals were not the cause and instead indicating that the inaction of the Hierarchy involving the cover-ups was a significant cause. However, regardless of the above facts Benedict XVI and the hierarchy have continued to the present - using propaganda tactics to publically demean gay people by name calling, “by capitalizing on the ambiguity of language, and by bending the rules of logic.”

Benedict XVI/Ratzinger & Vatican - “They did as much as they had at each point in time given the public outcry, and no more.” April 27, 2010
VIENNA — As Pope Benedict XVI has come under scrutiny for his handling of sexual abuse cases, both his supporters and his critics have paid fresh attention to the way he responded to a sexual abuse scandal in Austria in the 1990s, one of the most damaging to confront the church in Europe…
…Cardinal Groër left office six months after accusations against him of molesting boys first appeared in the Austrian news media in 1995…
…Benedict’s ambiguous role has made the Groër case a kind of Rorschach test of the future pope’s treatment of sexual abuse during his long stewardship of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican’s powerful doctrinal body…
…But while he [Benedict XVI] often, as a cardinal, used his clout to enforce doctrine and sideline clergy members whose views diverged from his own, he seemed less willing at that time to aggressively pursue sexual abusers…
…Msgr. Helmut Schüller, a former vicar general of the Vienna Archdiocese, says the church cannot win back the trust of Catholics unless the pope is more forthcoming about his past role in managing abuse scandals.
“He cannot expect others to be transparent, like the Irish bishops he appeals to in his letter, and not be transparent himself,” said Monsignor Schüller, who until 2005 was the archdiocese’s ombudsman for sexual abuse cases.
… But no result of the investigation was ever made public, and Cardinal Groër never faced a church court or even a public rebuke from Rome, let alone a secular trial…

Vatican Child Sexual Abuse Conference – “To be sure, "reform" by Vatican standards is far removed from the root-and-branch overhaul extolled by some critics…
The Vatican has an unparalleled knack for rewriting history, pretending that the complex result of a bruising internal fight has always been its fixed position. Before long, it may be hard to remember that there was ever a time when Vatican personnel weren't saying and doing these kinds of things -- but there was, and not so long ago…” February 10, 2012

A Victim Speaks
But there was only one victim to listen to at a symposium that gathered many bishops and religious superiors. Marie Collins, 65, recalled how she was raped as a 13-year-old by a hospital chaplain in her native Ireland.
In her prepared remarks, Collins described how "those fingers that would abuse my body the night before were the next morning holding and offering me the sacred host."
And she insisted on accountability for the harm and destruction done to victims through cover-ups and mishandling of cases…
Critics Say It's Not Enough
Several victims' advocates criticized the symposium as "cheap window dressing." They have long demanded that the Vatican make public decades of secret files on clergy sex offenders and their enablers…

LOVE NEVER FAILS - Gay Couples Kissing in Rome attacked by Vatican | Pope Francis Condemns Narcissistic Leprosy “Vatican-centric view” 10/5/13 (Revised - 10/15/13)


Excerpts:


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...



How can you (we) begin talking about restoring the dignity of human life within the global financial structures, of the major world corporations in respecting human beings more than profits, if you (we) blatantly keep maintaining the Vatican's unsubstantiated dehumanizing antigay teachings that has become by Benedict XVI’s obsessive antigay crusade, a global fountain of self-perpetuation of violence? 7/15/13

LOVE

Love is constant. It never changes. No matter with any two people who fall in love regardless, heterosexual, homosexual, transgender and 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 (http://www.americamagazine.org/pope-interview). 

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 (http://timescolumns.typepad.com/files/tony-blair.pdf ). 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 (http://www.americamagazine.org/pope-interview). 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 
love.
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. 

*
http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2012/08/3-psychological-facts-about-growing-up.html

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 http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2012/11/auschwitz-christmas-2008-flashback-far_5.html

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 
Mirroring 
Dehumanization - Promoting 
Greed 

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.


DECEPTION
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 (http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2013/04/gay-catholic-priest-fr-marty-kurylowicz.html). 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.” 


Paralleled
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. (http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2012/12/j-edgar-hoover-homophobic-men-repressed.html

Though, 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
(http://www.theguardian.com/world/2004/sep/25/usa.secondworldwar & http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2012/09/benedict-xvi-bush-2003-against-gay.html & http://www.pewforum.org/2007/11/14/publicationpage-aspxid668/ http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2013/09/inside-nazis-jews-prescott-wall-street.html). Photo



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 (http://www.repubblica.it/cultura/2013/10/01/news/pope_s_conversation_with_scalfari_english-67643118/). 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?

WELL-INFORMED CONSCIENCE
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?

“Someday, maybe, there will exist a well-informed, well considered and yet fervent public conviction that 
the most deadly of all 
possible sins 
is the mutilation of 
a child’s spirit.” 





…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




Important note: No disrespect meant to Pope Benedict XVI or the hierarchy, the one and only concern is the safety and well-being of children.
