Pope Francis - Teaches the World to Dance the TANGO - the Dance of LOVE - INCLUSION - through - DIALOGUE! - Feels Like - CHRISTMAS DAY!!! - Thank you, ARGENTINA


























Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi 


P e a c e   P r a y e r   o f   S a i n t   F r a n c i s

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy. 

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive, 
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, 
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

Vatican Appointee: Some Catholic Saints Were 'Probably Gay’ 
May 10, 2017 
Fr. James Martin responded to an antigay Facebook comment with an open-minded history lesson.
Fr. James Martin said some Catholic saints were "probably gay."
The Jesuit priest — who was appointed in April by Pope Francis as a consultant to the Vatican's Secretariat for Communications — gave this history lesson in tolerance on May 5 to an antigay Facebook commenter. 
Martin had posted a link to an article about a prayer led by Bishop John Stowe at an LGBT Catholic gathering coordinated by New Ways Ministry. An offended social-media follow responded, "Any canonized Saints would not be impressed." To which Martin replied, "Some of them were probably gay."
"A certain percentage of humanity is gay, and so were most likely some of the saints," Martin added. "You may be surprised when you get to heaven to be greeted by LGBT men and women.”…

Science  + 

 + Religion = Truth = L O V E


On Gay Priests “Who am I to Judge?”
July 29, 2013
Pope Francis


We have to find a new balance; 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.
Pope Francis




SCIENCE can purify religion from error and superstition; 
RELIGION can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes. 
Each can draw the other into a wider world, 
a world in which both can flourish. 
For the truth of the matter is that the Church and the scientific community will inevitably interact; their options 
DO NOT include ISOLATION. 
Pope John Paul II - 1988



…TRUTH is the light that gives meaning and value to CHARITY. That light is both the light of REASON and the light of FAITH, through which the intellect attains to the natural and supernatural truth of charity: it grasps its meaning as GIFT, acceptance, and communion. WITHOUT truth, charity degenerates into SENTIMENTALITY. Love becomes an EMPTY SHELL, to be filled in an ARBITRARY way. In a CULTURE without truth, this is the FATAL risk facing love. It FALLS prey to contingent subjective emotions and opinions, the word “love” is abused and distorted,to the point where it comes to MEAN the opposite. Truth FREES charity from the constraints of an EMOTIONALISM that deprives it of relational and social content, and of a FIDEISM that deprives it of human and universal breathing-space. In the truth, charity reflects the personal yet public dimension of faith in the God of the Bible, who is both Agápe and Lógos: Charity and Truth, Love and Word…
REASON always stands in need of being purified by faith: this also holds true for political reason, which must not consider itself OMNIPOTENT. For its part, RELIGION always needs to be purified by reason in order to show its authentically human face. Any breach in this dialogue comes only at an enormous price to human development
Pope Benedict XVI 2007 2009

A brief Tango History 
by Murray Pfeffer
     The Tango, often called 'The Argentine Tango', is Argentina's contribution to the world of dance. The Tango came from the brothels and low cafes of Buenos Aires at the turn of the century. However, at it's very beginning, it was a ballet-like dance between two men, which, just a little later, became the obscene dance of the brothels where both men and women had the opportunity to rub their bodies together. Over the years, the Tango has changed becoming an elegant and stylish dance evoking a picture of high society, with women in sleek glittering evening gowns and men in tuxedos and tails…









Tango Macho - “Los Hermanos Macana”


Tango: Theme of Class and Nation 
Julie M. Taylor 
Ethnomusicology, Vol. 20, No. 2. (May, 1976), pp. 273-291.  
...An examination of the continuing role of the tango in Argentina today entails a definition of the interrelated elements of tango as folklore, song, and dance. The following investigation deals with three groups of themes: those consisting of the characteristics of the environment which produced the tango, those forming the moral or emotional base of the tango and explicitly stated in its lyrics, and those found in the choreography of the dance itself. 
…Perhaps the most striking characteristic of the groups of tango enthusiasts is the fact that the membership is exclusively male. Not only that, but none of the female friends or relatives of the members show the slightest evidence of interest in the tango. Active interest in the dance complex appears to be entirely male; women develop an interest in tango only if they develop interest in an hombre tanguero. This seems to be a pattern which has not changed much over the years from the days when men danced together to the organitos and in the brothels through the era of the cafe-bar to the present...

SS paramilitaries murdering Jewish civilians, including a mother and child, in 1942, at Ivanhorod, Ukraine.


Excerpt below from:
Fr. Marty Kurylowicz
http://fathermartykurylowicz.blogspot.com/2017/06/immorality-of-religious-authority.html

Hitler, after he was appointed Chancellor of Germany, January 30, 1933, to gain the support of the conservative elites he appealed to their intense prejudices against homosexuals, by ordering the police closures of several gay and lesbian bars in Berlin to take place the day before the German federal elections were held on March 5, 1933. 


…In its issue of 4 March 1933, the Berliner Tageblatt carried an article announcing the police closure of fifteen gay and lesbian bars in Berlin. That was the day before the national elections that led to Hitler’s passing of the Enabling Act, and was one of many measures designed to woo conservatives

Though no single party gained the majority of the people’s votes, Hitler, however, did gain the needed support of the conservatives in the Reichstag to vote in favor of passing the Enabling Act (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enabling_Act_of_1933). Hitler achieved opening the last door to becoming the dictator of Germany and his aggressive implementation of the Nazi ideology of racial purity, the irrational goals of racial cleansing as means of the true German people reaching “national salvation” in the future. 

Hitler and the Uniqueness of Nazism - Ian Kershaw 2004
…This was no ‘banality of evil’. This was the working of an ideologically-motivated élite coldly prepared to plan for the eradication of 11 million Jews (the figure laid down at the Wannsee Conference of January 1942),  and for the ‘resettlement’ to the Siberian wastes, plainly genocidal in intent, of over 30 million, mainly Slavs, over the following 25 years. That, in such a system, they would find countless ‘willing executioners’ prepared to do their bit, whatever the individual motivation of those involved, goes without saying. This was, however, not on account of national character, or some long-existent, specifically German desire to eliminate the Jews. Rather, it was that the idea of racial cleansing, the core of the notion of national salvation, had become, via Hitler’s leadership position, institutionalized in all aspects of organized life in the nazi state. That was decisive.

PARENTING AND HOMOPHOBIA 
Parental Autonomy Support and Discrepancies Between Implicit and Explicit Sexual Identities: Dynamics of Self-Acceptance and Defense - 2012 
When individuals grow up with autonomy-thwarting parents, they may be prevented from exploring internally endorsed values and identities and as a result shut out aspects of the self perceived to be unacceptable. Given the stigmatization of homosexuality, individuals perceiving low autonomy support from parents may be especially motivated to conceal same-sex sexual attraction, leading to defensive processes such as reaction formation… 
…Psychodynamic traditions hold that people have a preferred view of themselves, which may not reflect reality. When this idealized view is threatened by contradictory thoughts or feelings, people engage in one or more unconscious processes to defend against the threat to self. Among defensive processes that have been recognized as having some empirical support is reaction formation, a process indicated in the modern body of research on self-esteem preservation (e.g., Baumeister, Dale, & Sommer, 1998).  Reaction formation refers to the process of adopting values or beliefs, or engaging in behaviors, that are in opposition to feelings or impulses experienced within oneself that are deemed unacceptable. Empirical work has shown reaction formation processes with respect to sexism (Sherman & Garkin, 1980), sex guilt (Morokoff, 1985), and prejudice (Dutton & Lake, 1973), indicating that individuals sometimes defend against self-relevant, threatening information by engaging in opposing behaviors…

 DR. EVELYN HOOKER


In the USA, 1957Evelyn Hooker’s most notable and ground breaking research proving that homosexuality is not a mental illness was completed called:-

 in which she administered several psychological tests to groups of self-identified male homosexuals and heterosexuals and asked experts to identify the homosexuals and rate their mental health. The experiment, which other researchers subsequently repeated, argues that homosexuality is not a mental disorder, as there was nodetectable difference between homosexual and heterosexual men in terms of mental adjustment... Photo

In 1945 Dr. Evelyn Hooker, a UCLA psychologist, and her husband sat down for a nightcap at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco with her former student Sam From and his male partner.  Sam told Dr. Hooker that it was her responsibility to study “normal” homosexuals to show the world what they were really like—to challenge the commonly held belief that gay people were by nature mentally ill.  Dr. Hooker took up the challenge soon after, but then life intervened, derailing her research until 1953, when she secured an unlikely government grant to pursue a study comparing 30 straight men to 30 gay men.
Three years later Dr. Hooker presented the results of her study at the 1956 American Psychological Association (APA)convention in Chicago.  She rocked the profession by demonstrating that gay men were just as sane as straight men.  While it would be another seventeen years before the American Psychiatric Association would remove homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual’s list of mental illnesses, it was Dr. Hooker’s study that paved the way, legitimizing homosexuality as a respectable field of study…


Being Gay Is Just as Healthy as Being Straight
Evelyn Hooker's pioneering research debunked the popular myth that homosexuals are inherently less mentally healthy than heterosexuals, leading to significant changes in how psychology views and treats people who are gay...
Hooker's work was the first to empirically test the assumption that gay men were mentally unhealthy and maladjusted. The fact that no differences were found between gay and straight participants sparked more research in this area and began to dismantle the myth that homosexual men and women are inherently unhealthy.
In conjunction with other empirical results, this work led the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from the DSM in 1973 (it had been listed as a sociopathic personality disorder). In 1975, the American Psychological Association publicly supported this move, stating that "homosexuality per se implies no impairment in judgment, reliability or general social and vocational capabilities…(and mental health professionals should) take the lead in removing the stigma of mental illness long associated with homosexual orientation." Although prejudice and stigma still exist in society, this research has helped millions of gay men and women gain acceptance in the mental health community.

The myth buster 
Evelyn Hooker’s groundbreaking research exploded the notion that homosexuality was a mental illness, ultimately removing it from the DSM
In 1953, Evelyn Hooker, PhD, applied for a National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) grant to conduct research on “normal homosexuals.” During this period of American history, Sen. Joseph McCarthy was seeking out communists wherever he suspected they might be lurking; homosexual acts were a crime; bomb shelters were springing up in backyards; and the term “normal” homosexual was thought to be an oxymoron. A variety of medical and psychological treatments to “cure” homosexuality were employed, including ice pick lobotomieselectroshockchemical castration with hormonal treatment or aversive conditioning. Gay parties were raided by the police, particularly in election years when a crackdown on “sexual perversion” was seen as a positive step in the fight on crime...
Hooker’s proposal to study gay men began as a result of a close friendship she developed with a former University of California, Los Angeles, student, Sam From, who introduced her to the gay subculture. She became one of the heterosexuals “in the know.” It was From who told her it was her “scientific duty” to study homosexuals and promised her access to all the subjects she needed. Initially she demurred but eventually, with the encouragement of From and her colleague Bruno Klopfer, Hooker began an investigation that would ultimately result in the removal of homosexuality as a form of psychopathology from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual III of the American Psychiatric Association. This research was the culmination of Hooker’s lifelong interest in social justice
Humble beginnings 
Evelyn Hooker was born Evelyn Gentry Sept. 2, 1907 in North Platte, Neb., the sixth of nine children…Her family was quite poor, and neither parent was educated past fourth grade. Her adolescence was colored by these social stigmata; she attributed her study of “an oppressed, deprived people,” (homosexual men) to her early experience (Garnets & Kimmel, 2003, p. 36)…she completed her doctorate in experimental psychology at Johns Hopkins University in 1932…A fellowship in 1937–38 took her to Berlin to pursue her increasing interest in clinical psychology at the Institute for Psychotherapy. She lived with a Jewish family and witnessed, with dismay, Hitler’s rise to power. Much later, after her return to the United States, she learned that all members of her host family perished in the concentration camps.
A trip to the Soviet Union at the end of her fellowship year exposed her to another totalitarian regime…
…Evelyn Hooker returned to her research on gay men…she decided to apply for a grant from NIMH. The chief of the grants division, John Eberhart, flew out to interview her to see who this woman was who claimed she had access to any number of gay men who were neither psychiatric patients nor prisoners. He told her, given the climate of McCarthyism, everyone was being investigated and if she got the grant, “you won’t know why and we won’t know why” (1993, p. 450). (Eberhart later told Hooker that her project was derisively referred to as “The Fairy Project” by some federal officials in Washington.) Funding was granted and Hooker embarked on her study…
…Hooker reported that one of the most exciting days of her life was the day she presented the results of her research at APA’s 1956 Annual Convention in Chicago. This ground-breaking research and the work that followed on the homosexual subculture led to Hooker’s award in 1992 for Distinguished Contribution to Psychology in the Public Interest from APA. In her response to this honor, she shared the award with the gay and lesbian community and expressed pleasure that her research and her “long advocacy of a scientific view of homosexuality” could make their lives and the lives of their families better. She closed her address by reading from a letter she had received from a gay man thanking her for her work and saying, “I think you did it because you knew what love was when you saw it, and you knew that gay love was like all other love.”

Evelyn Hooker, 89, Is Dead; Recast the View of Gay Men 
November 22, 1996
...Her most significant work was a paper delivered in 1956 to the American Psychological Association in Chicago and published the next year as ''The Adjustment of the Male Overt Homosexual'' in The Journal of Projective Techniques.
Dr. Hooker administered three standard personality tests, including the Rorschach ink-blot test, to two groups of 30 men, one heterosexual, one homosexual, who had been matched in I.Q.'s, age and education levels.
She then asked a panel of expert clinicians to assess the results without knowing the subjects' sexual orientation. To their surprise, the judges were unable to discern between the two groups on the basis of the test.
''The most striking finding of the three judges,'' Dr. Hooker wrote, ''was that many of the homosexuals were very well adjusted. In fact, the three judges agreed on two-thirds of the group as being average to superior in adjustment. Not only do all homosexuals not have strong feminine identification, nor are they all 'somewhat paranoid,' but, according to the judges, some may not be characterized by any demonstrable pathology.''...
…At the peak of the McCarthy period, in 1953, she applied for and received a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health. ''They talk about all this courage I'm supposed to have had,'' she recalled four decades later, in an interview with The Los Angeles Times. ''I don't get that. Curiosity and empathy were what compelled me to do my study.''...

Orlando gay club shooting: World pays tribute to victims with vigils and rainbow flags
June 20, 2016 




Monday, July 11, 2016 photo shows a makeshift memorial outside the Pulse nightclub, 
a month after the mass shooting in 
Orlando, Fla.


Orlando shooter Omar Mateen was gay, former classmate says 
June 14, 2016 
The FBI is investigating reports that Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen used gay dating apps and regularly visited Pulse before he shot more than 100 people inside, killing 49.
At least five people have come forward saying they saw Mateen at gay clubs, painting a complicated portrait of the American-born Muslim whom the FBI believes was radicalized by terrorist groups.
One former classmate of Omar Mateen’s 2006 police academy class told The Palm Beach Post that he believed Mateen was gay, saying Mateen once tried to pick him up at a bar.
The classmate said that he, Mateen and other classmates would hang out, sometimes going to gay nightclubs, after classes at Indian River Community College police academy. One night, he said Mateen asked him if he was gay. He said no, because he wasn’t telling people he was gay at the time…
…“He said, ‘Well if you were gay, you would be my type.’ I said OK and just went on with the night,” he said. “It was not anything too crazy, but I take that as a pick-up line.”
He believed Mateen was gay, but not open about it. Mateen was awkward, and for a while the classmate and the rest in the group of friends felt sorry for him…
Jim Van Horn, 71, told The Associated Press that Mateen was a regular at the club. “He was trying to pick up people. Men,” he said.
  While acknowledging he didn’t know Mateen well, Van Horn said: “I think it’s possible that he was trying to deal with his inner demons, of trying to get rid of his anger of homosexuality.”… 
        ...The Los Angeles Times reported that Mateen attended the Pulse nightclub possibly as many as a dozen times before the rampage. Kevin West said he had messaged Mateen back and forth over a year’s time on the gay dating app Jack’d but never met him until he saw Mateen crossing the street about 1 a.m. Sunday...

What psychological mechanisms facilitate separating one's sexual identity from the rest of one's persona? Sullivan's (1956) concept of dissociation may be illuminating, particularly its most common aspect: selective inattention. A ubiquitous, nonpathological process, selective inattention makes life more manageable, like tuning out the background noise on a busy street. However, through dissociation of anxiety-provoking knowledge about the self, a whole double life can be lived and yet, in some ways, not be known. Clinical presentations of closeted gay people may lie somewhere in  severity  between selective inattention--most commonly seen in the case of homosexually self-aware patients thinking about "the possibility" that they might be gay--to more severe dissociation--in which any hint of same-sex feelings resides totally out of conscious awareness. More severe forms of dissociation are commonly observed in married men who are homosexually self-aware but cannot permit the thought of themselves as gay (Roughton, 2002)…

Given Uganda's homophobia, why does it lead the way in Googling gay porn? 
10 January 2014
Is there a connection, then, between homophobia and suppressed homosexuality, along the lines of "me thinks he protesteth too much"? Is it that homosexual desires, when shut out because of some sense of shame, can easily express themselves as a form of homophobia? When the US conservative evangelical pastor Ted Haggard, well known for his anti-gay preaching, was discovered to have been paying a masseur for gay sex, he explained that "I think I was partially so vehement because of my own war". Freud coined the description "reaction-formation", in which anxiety-generating feelings are masked by an exaggerated reaction in the opposite direction. There is some experimental evidence to back this up, with one study showing that 20% of those who self-described as "highly straight" indicated some level of same-sex attraction. This discrepancy is often put down to highly controlling parents who do not allow their children room to explore their sexual identity.
Yes, of course, there are many people who do not experience same-sex attraction who are anti-gay. But one of the features of reaction-formation is its paranoia and lack of proportion. And this is precisely what the scaremongering nonsense about gay people being out to get our children – a common line in the Ugandan debate – clearly demonstrates. In conservative religious environments where God is depicted as a powerful all-controlling parent, it makes sense to me that this reaction-formation will be particularly strong…  


Why Is Gay Porn So Popular in Pakistan? - June 13, 2013
  Earlier this month, the Pew Research Center published results of a public survey of gay tolerance in 39 countries worldwide. The numbers are fairly unsurprising: While a high proportion of respondents in Western Europe and North America answered "yes" to the question "Should society accept homosexuality?" few respondents in the Middle East and Africa agreed with them.
  Among the least tolerant nations surveyed was Pakistan, where only 2 percent of those surveyed said society should accept homosexuality. That statistic might be unsurprising, considering that gay sex is illegal under the Pakistani penal code. But what is surprising is how those views compare to Pakistani search traffic around gay-porn-related terms…

The Global Divide on Homosexuality

Pew Research Center


What lies behind religious homophobia 
February 26, 2013
"And why is your church so anti-gay?," came back the obvious question. "Because it is so gay," I replied.
A furrowed brow invited further exposition. I then spelt out the logic. We interviewed clerics and ex-seminarians in the UK, US and Rome and uncovered a huge irony: the very institution that teaches that the homosexual orientation is "intrinsically disordered" attracts gay candidates for the priesthood in numbers way in excess of what one would expect, based on numbers in society at large. One seminary rector based on his own experience told me the number was at least 50%.
Gay Catholics like me will appreciate another irony with the news of Cardinal Keith O'Brien's resignation: that the very man whose trenchant rhetoric on the subjects of gay adoption and marriage has been brought down by accusations of improper same-sex behaviour from no less than four men who crossed his path in the 1980s, either as a seminary rector or as archbishop of Edinburgh. His decision not to participate in the papal conclave is not to be taken as an admission of guilt and he contests the accusations made against him. Nevertheless, it does raise some general questions about a possible relationship between the tone of anti-gay rhetoric and the identities of those who engage in such high-octane language on same sex attraction…

The Size of the LGBT Population and the Magnitude of Anti-Gay Sentiment are Substantially Underestimated 
October 2013 
Measuring sexual orientation, behavior, and related opinions is difficult because responses are biased towards socially acceptable answers. We test whether measurements are biased even when responses are private and anonymous and use our results to identify sexuality-related norms and how they vary…
…The results show non-heterosexuality and anti-gay sentiment are substantially underestimated in existing surveys, and the privacy afforded by current best practices is not always sufficient to eliminate bias. Finally, our results identify two social norms: it is perceived as socially undesirable both to be open about being gay, and to be unaccepting of gay individuals.

How Many American Men Are Gay? 
December 7, 2013
WHAT percent of American men are gay? This question is notoriously difficult to answer. Historical estimates range from about 2 percent to 10 percent.
But somewhere in the exabytes of data that human beings create every day are answers to even the most challenging questions.
Using surveys, social networks, pornographic searches and dating sites, I recently studied evidence on the number of gay men. The data used in this analysis is available in highly aggregated form only and can be downloaded from publicly accessible sites. While none of these data sources are ideal, they combine to tell a consistent story.
At least 5 percent of American men, I estimate, are predominantly attracted to men, and millions of gay men still live, to some degree, in the closet. Gay men are half as likely as straight men to acknowledge their sexuality on social networks. More than one quarter of gay men hide their sexuality from anonymous surveys. The evidence also suggests that a large number of gay men are married to women…
…Additional evidence that suggests that many gay men in intolerant states are deeply in the closet comes from a surprising source: the Google searches of married women. It turns out that wives suspect their husbands of being gay rather frequently. In the United States, of all Google searches that begin “Is my husband...,” the most common word to follow is “gay.” “Gay” is 10 percent more common in such searches than the second-place word, “cheating.” It is 8 times more common than “an alcoholic” and 10 times more common than “depressed.”
Searches questioning a husband’s sexuality are far more common in the least tolerant states. The states with the highest percentage of women asking this question are South Carolina and Louisiana. In fact, in 21 of the 25 states where this question is most frequently asked, support for gay marriage is lower than the national average…

Porn Studies - 2004

Brief description:
In her pioneering book Hard Core, Linda Williams put moving-image pornography on the map of contemporary scholarship with her analysis of the most popular and enduring of all film and video genres. Now, fifteen years later, she showcases the next generation of critical thinking about pornography and signals new directions for study and teaching. Porn Studies resists the tendency to situate pornography as the outer limit of what can be studied and discussed. With revenues totaling between ten and fourteen billion dollars annually—more than the combined revenues of professional football, basketball, and baseball—visual, hard-core pornography is a central feature of American popular culture. It is time, Williams contends, for scholars to recognize this and give pornography a serious and extended analysis.
The essays in this volume move beyond feminist debates and distinctions between a “good” erotica and a “bad” hard core. Contributors examine varieties of pornography from the tradition of the soft-core pin-up through the contemporary hard-core tradition of straight, gay, and lesbian videos and dvds to the burgeoning phenomenon of pornography on the Internet…

Pornography Consumption and US Adults' Attitudes toward Gay Individuals' Civil Liberties, Moral Judgments of Homosexuality, and Support for Same-Sex Marriage: Mediating and Moderating Factors
Paul J. Wright, Robert S. Tokunaga & Soyoung Bae - 18 Feb 2014
Abstract
This study compared views on homosexuality among US adults who varied in their consumption of pornography. Nationally representative cross-sectional data generated by the General Social Survey (GSS) between 2000 and 2012 were employed. Pornography consumers expressed more positive attitudes toward gay individuals' civil liberties, more moral acceptance of homosexuality, and more support for same-sex marriage. Moderation analyses indicated the importance of consumers' views on personal freedom and morality. Associations between pornography consumption and positive views on homosexuality were strongest when consumers placed a premium on personal freedom and adopted a relativistic perspective on morality. Mediation analyses indicated that pornography consumption indirectly predicted more positive views on homosexuality through a nontraditional attitude toward sex. Supplementary analysis of nationally representative three-wave GSS panel data confirmed the temporal sequencing of these links. Prior pornography consumption predicted a more positive subsequent attitude toward nontraditional sex, which in turn predicted more positive subsequent views on homosexuality.

Homophobes Might Be Hidden Homosexuals 
 April 2012



Fr. Marty Kurylowicz - June 15, 2017 


Hostility - Repressed Homosexual Urges

These MRIs (brain scans) studies of the intense emotions of anger and laughter helps us to better understand when we operating mentally at our best and when we have lost perspective on an issue. These studies help to explain in part - why their hostility is so intense against homosexuals that it completely excludes the integration of any science regarding sexual orientation or the consideration of other scriptural interpretations regarding homosexuals. 



Gay Adult Porn & Homophobia

Other recent studies involving non-homophobic and homophobic men who all reported histories of only being aroused in heterosexual situations - found that it was only the homophobic men who displayed physical indications of being sexually aroused while watching a four minute gay male porn video. Afterwards, these homophobic men reported not experiencing any sexual arousal while viewing the gay male porn video, even though the factual evidence proved the opposite. These studies found that 



homophobia is an emotional or affective response including fear, anxiety, anger, discomfort and aversion that an individual experiences in interacting with gay individuals,…
The idea of repressed or latent homosexuality explains “the emotional malaise and irrational attitudes displayed by some individuals who feel guilty about their erotic interests and struggle to deny and repress homosexual impulses.”…

Homophobes Might Be Hidden Homosexuals - April 12, 2012
Homophobes should consider a little self-reflection, suggests a new study finding those individuals who are most hostile toward gays and hold strong anti-gay views may themselves have same-sex desires, albeit undercover ones.
The prejudice of homophobia may also stem from authoritarian parents, particularly those with homophobic views as well, the researchers added.
"This study shows that if you are feeling that kind of visceral reaction to an out-group, ask yourself, 'Why?'" co-author Richard Ryan, a professor of psychology at the University of Rochester, said in a statement. "Those intense emotions should serve as a call to self-reflection.”…
The research may help to explain the underpinnings of anti-gay bullying and hate crimes, the researchers note. People in denial about their own sexual orientation, perhaps a denial fostered by authoritarian and homophobic parents, may feel a threat from other gay and lesbian individuals. Lashing out may ultimately be an indicator of the person's own internal conflict with sexual orientation.
This inner conflict can be seen in some high-profile cases in which anti-gay public figures are caught engaging in same-sex acts, the researchers say. For instance, evangelical preacher and anti-gay-marriage advocate Ted Haggard was caught in a gay sex scandal in 2006.  And in 2010, prominent anti-gay activist and co-founder of conservative Family Research Council George Rekers was reportedly spotted in 2010 with a male escort rented from Rentboy. com. According to news reports, the escort confirmed Rekers is gay.
"We laugh at or make fun of such blatant hypocrisy, but in a real way, these people may often themselves be victims of repression and experience exaggerated feelings of threat," Ryan said. "Homophobia is not a laughing matter. It can sometimes have tragic consequences," as was the case in the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard, a gay man.

The Compulsion to Repeat the Trauma 
Re-enactment, Revictimization, and Masochism 
Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD
  Trauma can be repeated on behavioral, emotional, physiologic, and neuroendocriniologic levels. Repetition on these different levels causes a large variety of individual and social sufferingAnger directed against the self or others is always a central problem in the lives of people who have been violated and this is itself a repetitive re-enactment of real events from the past…
  People who have been exposed to highly stressful stimuli develop long-term potentiation of memory tracts that are reactivated at times of subsequent arousal. This activation explains how current stress is experienced as a return of the trauma; it causes a return to earlier behavior patterns. Ordinarily, people will choose the most pleasant of two alternatives. High arousal causes people to engage in familiar behavior, regardless of the rewards. As novel stimuli are anxiety provoking, under stress, previously traumatized people tend return to familiar patterns, even if they cause pain…
  Childhood abuse and neglect enhance long-term hyperarousal and decreased modulation of strong affect states…Victimized people may neutralize their hyperarousal by a variety of addictive behaviors, including compulsive re-exposure to victimization of self and others. Gaining control over one's current life, rather than repeating trauma in action, mood, or somatic states, is the goal of treatment. The only reason to uncover traumatic material is to gain conscious control over unbidden re-experiences or re- enactments. The presence of strong attachments provides people with the security necessary to explore their life experiences and to interrupt the inner or social isolation that keeps them stuck in repetitive patterns. In contrast with victimized children, adults can learn to protect themselves and make conscious choices about not engaging in relationships or behaviors that are harmful.

…Dr. Henry Krystal describes - when such overwhelming emotions are separated from the situations that caused them and then are buried - though they are forgotten - they still remain active in our unconscious. They are not only active, but they continue to be destructive to our lives, in ways that we are unaware is happening. It is only through the process of remembering and reconnecting these painful and overwhelming emotions to the situations the caused them that we deactivate their destructive force in our lives. Dr. Henry Krystal:

...Love is the representation of our life powers. The painful emotions can be understood as love hindered, rejected, denied. Emotions recognized, received, and acknowledged, produce the experience of wholeness and competence. What we cannot accept lovingly and peaceably we must try to reject and alienate and we must denote it as ‘nonself.’” (1971a: p. xvii) Our memories, wishes, representations of ourselves and of our objects must be consciously accepted, tolerated, accommodated to, and, hopefully, utilized to one’s advantage. Otherwise they must be handled by repression, isolation, projection, and other (fantasy) defenses, which are experienced as externally, imposed “symptoms.” Contrary to subjective experiences of affect that seem to be explainable by the residues of the antiquated psychoanalytic theories, we cannot “express” them in the sense of ridding ourselves of our affect -- emotional self continence is a self evident truth. However, only consciously acknowledged, and experienced self continence results in a feeling of well being. Illusionally estranged mental elements seem to continue to radiate the painful affects...

A Boy's Life Growing Up Gay with Dad



April 2009 - SEXUAL ORIENTATION is less about sex and more about LOVE, being one with another human being. Attachment Theory - - LOVE & RELIGION --- Fr. Marty Kurylowicz 
Nothing in life is more precious than the intimate relationships we have with love ones. Healthy love relationships delight us give us confidence to take on challenges and support us in difficult times...




Salt is good, 
but if it loses its saltiness, 
how can you make it salty again?
Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other. 
Mark 9:50


The Cost of Being a Disciple
Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said:  “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple.  And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. 
Luke 14:25-27



  &   m 

Only the truth will set us free - choosing anything other then the truth - regardless how alluring or its popularity will enslave us by exhausting us of our energy and resources, while robbing us of life and love, as well as, harming others.  

Choosing truth will demand everything within us, exhausting us to the point that it will feel like we are going lose our lives, which is a possibility, as well as, separating us from family and friends.  But in the end - it expands us - feeling in someways more alive than ever- leaving us with a deep sense of peace allowing to be at peace with the world.  

Stagnation

A commitment to search for truth is a never ending lifetime process that is always exhausting and expanding us and in this process we are helping others. A commitment to truth means - first, that we are willing to courageously face the total truth about ourselves - our deepest darkest secrets.  It is no easy task and one that last throughout our lives.  The refusal to face the truth about ourselves - leads us to unconsciously reenacting, as adults, the abuse and or violence we may have been victims of, as children - on to others.

Never-Ending 
Self-Torturous Life Style

It is the unpleasant emotions connected to our painful memoirs that if not recognized and acknowledged - stay buried in our unconscious minds, but there they remain active disrupting our lives - exhausting us of our energy to keep them buried - stagnating our emotional growth - leading us to the likely possibility of any number of never ending addictive behaviors. 

Developmental Progress of Emotions
Continues Through Life
Henry Krystal 
      The genetic view of emotions There is a gradual and orderly development of the human capacity to experience emotions. There is evidence from developmental neuro-science and psychophysiology correlated with clinical observations, developmental psychology and our own longitudinal studies of the importance of the genetic aspects of emotions. All these sources have provided evidence of the developmental progress of emotions during infancy, toddler age, latency, and adolescence. In fact, it continues through all of our lives…
  The genetic development of affects hinges on the availability of empathic caring, and a responsive holding environment…
    Emotions recognized, received, and acknowledged, produce the experience of wholeness and competence. What we cannot accept lovingly and peaceably we must try to reject and alienate and we must denote it as ‘nonself.’” …Our memories, wishes, representations of ourselves and of our objects [a person or thing to which a specified action or feeling is directed] must be consciously accepted, tolerated, accommodated to, and, hopefully, utilized to one’s advantage. Otherwise they must be handled by repression, isolation, projection, and other (fantasy) defenses, which are experienced as externally, imposed “symptoms.”      …emotional self continence is a self evident truth…only consciously acknowledged, and experienced self continence results in a feeling of well being. Illusionally estranged mental elements seem to continue to radiate the painful affects. Getting stuck in such a predicament condemns one to becoming “hypnotized” by the emotions, blocking the ability to pay attention to the message they carry. In such disasters one may devote most of one’s energy to fight and try to block the physiological aspects of emotions, or alternately develop an addiction to hate, pain, shame, envy. It becomes a never-ending self -torturous life style
…happiness is the natural expression of the appreciated wholeness of human being ... the joy of living consists of a sensitive awareness in the unity of the human nature.” …



Over the past 30 years the members of the Roman curia and the members of the hierarchy, though not all - ceased to be the salt of the earth by using all their energy collectively refusing to accept or even to discuss the truth from the science of homosexual sexual orientation.  The global visibility of their excessively intense emotional obsessiveness to maintain the an absolute denial of truth of homosexuality for the past 30 years is clearly an observable situation that they, as a cohesive group, have become completely entrenched and enslaved in - an all penetrating darkness they believe to be the light.  

Stagnation & Isolation 

It has led to their pervasive stagnation and isolation that has not only destroyed their lives, but the lives of millions, including children  and for generations to come.  Dr. Henry Krystal has described the tragic situation that evolves for someone - when extremely unpleasant and disturbing emotions are forcefully denied and unacknowledged. It is futile attempt to suppress the truth of any unpleasant emotion - exhausting our energy to do anything else, because they will always remain active disrupting our lives, or developing into addictions “… to hate, pain, shame, envy. It becomes a never-ending self-torturous life style.” As quoted above:

…Illusionally estranged mental elements seem to continue to radiate the painful affects. Getting stuck in such a predicament condemns one to becoming “hypnotized” by the emotions, blocking the ability to pay attention to the message they carry. In such disasters one may devote most of one’s energy to fight and try to block the physiological aspects of emotions, or alternately develop an addiction to hate, pain, shame, envy. It becomes a never-ending self -torturous life style
“happiness is the natural expression of the appreciated wholeness of human being ... the joy of living consists of a sensitive awareness in the unity of the human nature.” …




Autonomic Nervous System


Fr. Marty Kurylowicz - June 9, 2017 
Excerpts:

A child’s sexual orientation is not about sexual behavior - it is about love, wanting to feel one with another. Depending on the severity of this rejection of a child’s expression of love - the child wants to desperately please his parents and will learn to hid from his parent such emotions of love that are disturbing to them. He will even hide them from himself and thus begins the mental dissociation of this child - attempting to suppress the never ending - regular functioning of his sexual orientation of the emotional impulses - to be loved and to love and to feel one with another. However, as explained above - a person’s sexual orientation like the heart beating, breathing, sexual arousal, etc., are all under the control autonomic nervous system that operates automatically and unconsciously - they cannot be suppressed. 


Sexual orientation 
refers to an enduring pattern of emotional, romantic and/or sexual attractions to men, women or both sexes... http://www.apa.org/topics/lgbt/orientation.aspx

Autonomic nervous system
  The autonomic nervous system is a control system that acts largely unconsciously and regulates bodily functions such as the heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, pupillary response, urination, and sexual arousalhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomic_nervous_system#cite_note-Human_Physiology_-_Janig-2

The Eyes Have It: Sex and Sexual Orientation Differences in Pupil Dilation Patterns  
August 3. 2012   
pupil dilation to stimuli indicates activation of the autonomic nervous system. This system is associated with many automatic processes such as perspiration, digestion, blood pressure, and heart rate. For this reason, pupil dilation has been used as indicator of automatic response, for example, in studies of implicit reaction and cognitive load. Other research suggests that pupil dilation can reflect automatic attention, or attention that is likely not in the conscious control of participants. It is therefore unlikely that participants suppress pupil dilation to stimuli they are sexually attracted to. Pupil dilation patterns could therefore reflect, with high sensitivity, automatic attention related to sexual attraction and sexual orientation

Excerpts:
WHERE IS THE CANON LAW - to expedite the sanctions against these members of the curia and hierarchy - “who scandalize the people” by continuously ignoring the science on HOMOSEXUAL Sexual Orientation and  silencing by laicizing any member of the clergy who openly discusses this science? Their perception of right and wrong - good and evil - has become twisted around to mean the opposite. They collectively as a group, consider that the open discussion of the science on homosexuality to be scandalous to the people, which it is not per Pope John Paul II 1988 and Pope Benedict XVI 2009. What is monumentally scandalous to the people is the curia and hierarchy obsessive need to brutally suppress anyone who openly discusses the science of homosexuality. They have managed to twist the meaning of truth and love around to mean the exact opposite. This diabolical twisted behavioral thinking being passed off as if it is the will of God - is of course not true of all members of the curia and hierarchy - but the facts gather over decades - clearly indicate that it is the majority. 

This unsanctioned scandalous homophobic behavior, by the members of curia and hierarchy has a rippling negative global effect that continues to spiral downwards further and further from the light of truth and love. As a group - they self-righteously - become all hysterical over gay adult pornography and care nothing about global atrocities they are committing and contributing by ignoring and silencing the science on homosexuality for the past 60 years. Well, this seems precisely what Jesus meant when he publicly rebuke  the teachers of the law and Pharisees - calling them hypocrites and blind guides and stating “You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.” Adult gay pornography is the gnat - tiny and insignificant - compared to the ongoing global destruction that is caused by their ignoring and silencing the science on homosexuality for the past 60 years thus twisting the light of truth and love to mean the opposite. We all need to heed these words of Jesus.  





“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, 
you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your
 spices—mint, dill and cumin. But 
you have neglected the more 
important matters of the 
law—justice, mercy 
and faithfulness. 
You should have practiced the latter, 
without neglecting the former. 
You blind guides! You strain out a gnat 
but swallow a camel.
Matthew 23:23-25





This is the root of the false moral edifice of the church that has been built - because it is the BREACH in the dialogue between science and religion, faith and reason that Pope Benedict XVI warns - “comes only at an enormous price to human development… (Caritas in Veritate)http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/encyclicals/documents/hf_ben-xvi_enc_20090629_caritas-in-veritate.html.” It is not built on the light of TRUTH that comes from both faith and science and without TRUTH there is NO LOVE. By example - their approved (because it is not sanctioned by Canon Law) scandalous homophobic violence - for the past 60 years of ignoring the science on homosexuality — they have taught and continue to teach that it is permissible for people globally to arbitrarily pick and choose what fields of science they will or will not accept. In the same way that Hitler and the Nazi Regime formed their Pseudoscience of Racial Purity - to support their ideology of Nazism that led to the start of World War Two and ended with the deaths of 70 million people, it is “considered the single most destructive event in human history (Less Than Human - by David Livingstone Smith - The Psychology Of Cruelty http://www.npr.org/2011/03/29/134956180/criminals-see-their-victims-as-less-than-human).” This does not include what we are witnessing and identifying today as one aspect of the global immensity of the lasting inhuman effects of the psychological fallout that stems from the magnitude of the societal acceptance and the collusion by societal indifference of and to the most deadly and dehumanizing event ignited by Hitler and orchestrated by the Nazi regime


















1935 Chart from Nazi Germany used to explain the Nuremberg Laws
The Nuremberg Laws of 1935 employed a pseudo-scientific basis for racial discrimination against Jews. 
People with four German grandparents (white circles) were of "German blood", while people were classified as Jews if they were descended from three or more Jewish grandparents (black circles in top row right). 
Either one or two Jewish grandparents made someone a Mischling (of mixed blood). 
The Nazis used the religious observance of a person's grandparents to determine their race.




Racial policy of Nazi Germany
The racial policy of Nazi Germany was a set of policies and laws implemented by Nazi Germany, asserting the superiority of the "Aryan race", and based on a specific racist doctrine which claimed scientific legitimacy. It was combined with a eugenics programme that aimed for racial hygiene by using compulsory sterilizations and extermination of the Untermenschen (or "sub-humans"), and which eventually culminated in the Holocaust. These policies targeted peoples, in particular Jews, as well as Gypsies, homosexuals and handicapped people, ethnic Poles, Russians who were labeled as "inferior" in a racial hierarchy that placed the Herrenvolk (or "master race") of the Volksgemeinschaft (or "national community") at the top, and ranked Russians, Romani, Serbs, Poles, persons of color and Jews at the bottom… Read more:

This psychological fallout has in ways germinated in varying degrees of severity - mostly unconsciously in many of the lives of children who were exposed to the atrocities of Hitler and the Nazi regime and harmful effects experienced then have been and are being repeated even today. This appears to be especially true of hostile homophobic behavior of the members of the curia and hierarchy who grew up during and in the aftermath of the downfall of Hitler and the Nazi regime. This is due to the Nazis persecution of the Catholic Church in Nazi Germany involved in the the highly publicized trumped up "immorality" trials falsely accusing the outspoken anti-nazism Catholic clergy of the crime of homosexual in order to silence them and remove them to the concentration camps.

In 2008, I wrote a piece about a qualitative research project I did on the Holocaust in graduate school for psychology in 2003. I described how I was so unexpectedly traumatized by the research content of the Holocaust and how I could identify the same psychological fallout of the horrors of Hitler and the Nazi regime that took place from in 1933 to 1945 - in 2008 that took place at that time nearly 70 years before. It involves the psychology of - how we reenact over and over again traumatic abusive episodes in our past - in the present. These reenactments are for the most part unconsciously repeated - until they are proper examined - generally with a well trained therapist. I stated in a piece titled  “AUSCHWITZ -- CHRISTMAS 2008 - A flashback far more severe than in - BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN” December 26, 2008 that



…My supervisor told me at the time that I was traumatized by the oral content. Qualitative research is an attempt to understand the complexity of emotions, the kinds of emotions, and the degree of intensity involved. Our emotions are what allow us to connect with other human beings. We identify with the non-verbal quality of emotions more immediately and strongly than with the words used to express them. The non-verbal qualities include tone of voice, eye contact, facial expression, body posture, and gestures, all of which express emotions. Emotions are why we can connect with people through time, across cultures, and individually. It is the expression of human emotions in the arts that makes some works of art timeless, because they continually speak to all people through the ages...
              ...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…

Jews from all over Europe were brought by train to the death camp at Auschwitz in Poland


























The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich
by William Shirer 
Excerpt:
“The gas chambers themselves [at Auschwitz] and the adjoining crematoria, viewed from a short distance, were not sinister-looking places at all; it was impossible to make them out for what they were. Over them were well-kept lawns with flower borders; the signs at the entrances merely said BATHS. The unsuspecting Jews thought they were simply being taken to the baths for the delousing which was customary at all camps. And taken to the accompaniment of sweet music!
“For there was light music. An orchestra of ‘young and pretty girls all dressed in white blouses and navy-blue skirts,’ as one survivor remembered, had been formed from among the inmates. While the selection was being made for the gas chambers this unique musical ensemble played gay tunes from The Merry Widow and Tales of Hoffmann. Nothing solemn and somber from Beethoven. The death marches at Auschwitz were sprightly and merry tunes, straight out of Viennese and Parisian operetta.
“To such music, recalling as it did happier and more frivolous times, the men, women and children were led into the ‘bath houses,’ where they were told to undress preparatory to taking a ‘shower.’ Sometimes they were even given towels. “Once they were inside the ‘shower-room’ — and perhaps this was the first moment that they may have suspected some thing was amiss, for as many as two thousand of them were packed into the chamber like sardines, making it difficult to take a bath — the massive door was slid shut, locked and hermetically sealed. Up above where the well-groomed lawn and flower beds almost concealed the mushroom-shaped lids of vents that ran up from the hall of death, orderlies stood ready to drop into them the amethyst-blue crystals of hydrogen cyanide….

The Gestapo – Power and Terror in the Third Reich
September 13, 2014
For the victims of Nazi terror the experience of arrest was often similar: it began with a heavy knock on the door in the early morning hours. Plain-clothes policemen would then drive the “suspects” to an unknown destination where they were usually interrogated under torture. If found guilty of whatever “crime” they had been charged with, they would either be executed or sent to a concentration camp.
The organisation responsible for these kinds of actions requires little introduction. To this day the Gestapo (or Geheime Staatspolizei) is known throughout the world as Hitler’s much-feared political police force, an organisation synonymous with the regime’s terror against those perceived as its mortal enemies: socialists, communists, Jews, homosexuals, Gypsies and “habitual criminals”. Between 1933 and 1945 tens of thousands of these “enemies of the Reich” were arrestedtortured and often murdered. Most of those who were sent to concentration camps were never seen again

Gestapo …a brutal police force 
The G e s t a p o 
by Frank McDonough
Review - September 24, 2015
…In a dungeon, a terrified, naked prisoner would be handcuffed to an iron bar hung on chains from the ceiling. A guard then shoved him off in a slow arc and, at each return, another guard smashed his buttocks with a crowbar, while an officer barked questions.
A witness later described how ‘as the swinging went on and the wailing victim fainted and was then revived, only to faint again, the blows continued until only a mass of bleeding pulp remained’.
Most perished from this ordeal. ‘In the end a sack of bones and flayed flesh and fat was swept along the concrete floor and dragged away.’…

What the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy seem to have managed to do, quite unknowingly - is to recreate nearly globally the same harsh and frightening years of the past childhood years growing up. It seems to be the reason that Pope Francis, who grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina - a social environment that was far from being antigay, it is where men have danced the tango together since the late 1800s to the present - it is the complete opposite social environment from Nazi Germany and Europe that was inundated with the fierce highly publicized antigay attacks that were deadly (than one can imagine) on the Catholic Church, it seems to be the reason why Pope Francis is always speaking about the curia and clergy to be more joyful. It seems quite possible that this joyless state stems from their early childhood years, including the obsessive worry about homosexuals being exposed or blackmailed by a third party similar to the Gestapo i.e. Lepanto Group -
wealthy ultraconservative - Aggressive about only 2 issues - keeping Gays out of the Church and maintaining - untouched global markets


The Pope faces his adversaries
Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of the Grand Master of the Order of Malta with whom he had been in conflict for more than a month. This marks a new chapter in the opposition to the Argentine pontiff.
Nicolas Senèze, Rome - January 26, 2017
Excerpt:
…Still, more than the mafia-type dealings, it is the financial system itself that has obstructed the popes’ efforts. As early as 2009, in his encyclical Caritas in veritate, where he began to call into question the capitalist system, Benedict XVI was criticized by American conservatives. This discourse from the German pope was to be significantly developed and amplified by his successor. In his exhortation Evangelii gaudium, Francis directly opposed the "trickledown theory", one of the liberal dogmas in the United States. And in many of his speeches, he tackled the misdeeds of an unruly capitalism, the "silver god" that "corrupts", the economy that "kills".
In the United States, such talk which challenges the foundations of American free enterprise goes down badly. Francis has been described as a "Marxist" pope. His encyclicalLaudato struck also against the discourse of climate changedenial pushed by the petroleum giants.
Currently, the most severe attacks against the pope are coming from the United States. At the Order of Malta, the case of the Burmese condoms was put forward by the "Lepanto Institute for the restoration of all things in Christ". This ultraconservative organization specialized in the denunciation of "gays” entering the Church and in attacks on the major development associations that question unfetteredeconomic liberalism





Mysterious Posters Take Jab at Pope Francis as Conservative Criticism Intensifies 
February 4, 2017 
VATICAN CITY — Conservative criticism of Pope Francis intensified Saturday after his intervention in the Knights of Malta order, with posters appearing around Rome citing his actions against conservative Catholics and asking: "Where's your mercy?"
The posters appeared on the same day that Francis cemented his authority over the Knights by naming a top Vatican archbishop, Angelo Becciu, to be his special delegate to the ancient aristocratic order…

Ian Kershaw “is regarded by many as one of the world's leading experts on Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Kershaw).”Kershaw describes in great detail - the horrific atrocities instigated by Hitler and how we should see his place in history. Kershaw looks upon Hitler’s place in history as: 


Primarily, as the inspiration of the most lethal and destructive war in history, and of the most terrible genocidethe world has ever seen. He left behind him not just physical, but also moralruination such as history has never previously experienced. He represented an extreme pathology of modern society. He showed us the most radical face of modern inhumanity – how an advanced society can undergo a breathtaking descent into modern barbarity that’s quite without precedent…

It is these details that Kershaw describes that are contained in the psychological fallout that is far more extensive, more deadly, and lasting far more into the future that even after 80 years - they are still repeating the horrific atrocities though in ways - that is more of a structural form of violence. Structural violence is identifiable in the fierce denial of climate change, by the rich and powerful and it is the poor who suffer and die - and no one cared until Pope Francis came along. And the horrific atrocities emulating from this psychological fallout will continue as such - especially when it is not identified as such. And the root cause is the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy ignoring and silencing the science of homosexuality. And it is defenseless children as young as 4 and 5 years of age who are the ones who suffer the lifelong harmful effects - as so vividly demonstrated by the joyless homophobic members of the curia and hierarchy. It appears to be a clear case of the abused growing up to be the aggressive abuser.

Introduction
by Deborah Du Nann Winter and Dana C. Leighton
Direct violence is horrific, but its brutality usually gets our attention: we notice it, and often respond to it. Structural violence, however, is almost always invisible, embedded in ubiquitous social structures, normalized by stable institutions and regular experience. Structural violence occurs whenever people are disadvantaged by political, legal, economic, or cultural traditions. Because they are longstanding, structural inequities usually seem ordinary—the way things are and always have been. But structural violence produces suffering and death as often as direct violence does, though the damage is slower, more subtle, more common, and more difficult to repair. The chapters in this section teach us about some important but invisible forms of structural violence, and alert us to the powerful cultural mechanisms that create and maintain them over generations…
  One outcome of exclusionary thinking is the belief that victims of violence must in some way deserve their plight. But certainly it is easy to see that young children do not deserve to be victims…

What I have just stated above is call an interpretation - it is an overall summary from 5 different perspectives of what has likely happened - knowing that there exists more complicated details some known but not stated and still others not known. The 5 perspectives are for me -  as a priest, as a psychologist, as a historian, as a victim for the past 20 years of the violence of the curia’s and hierarchy, and from insider information in the Vatican - though minimal at best, however, like DNA - a few insights reveals plenty. 

The psychological fallout from Hitler and the Nazi regime - seems to be manifested on a more global level. It is identifiable in the lethally harmful effects found in how globalization rose in power and their efforts to stay in power all at the expense of dehumanizing all of humanity. In many ways globalization is the identical continuation of the Nazi ideology. Both began with the arbitrary choices of the fields of science that supported their individual ideologies of Nazism and of globalization. They both exploited societal prejudices against homosexuality to rise to power. In this way the Nazis were able to woo the conservative support of Germany at the time that ushered Hitler into becoming the dictator of Nazi Germany and again - to silence and remove the anti-nazism opposition of the Catholic clergy in order to stay in power. Those promoting globalization used their money and power to ignored the science on homosexuality that found that being gay is just as normal as being straight - in order to be able to continue to use it as a  political wedge to usher into elected office the supporters of globalization. And the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy  for the past 60 years, but especially the last 30 years were a key major global component in effectively suppressing the science of homosexuality. They paved the way for the atrocities we face today. 

And there is no CANON LAW to stop this?!? - - Now, who is being stupid and neglectful???

Becoming over hysterical over adult gay pornography - WILL DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO ELIMINATE THE EVIL IN THE WORLD!!! Because if we would dutifully studied the science on homosexuality we would realize that the viewing of adult gay pornography is a symptom - stemming directly from the suppression of a child gay sexual orientation as young as 4 and 5 years of age. That is violently promoted by the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy - who are themselves - child victims of the same abuse. 

This is due to the fact that sexual orientation is established around birth and once established is resistant to being changed. And from then it operates independently 24/7 like the heart beating and our breathing - we do not have to think about the fact - that we need to take a breath. To force a child to suppress his gay or bisexual sexual orientation is to destroy his autonomy to become a full functioning human being. The psychological definition of word AUTONOMY needs to be explained. Autonomy does not mean self sufficient - in the sense that one does not need anyone in life. It means quite the opposite. Autonomy means to internalize all the aspects entailed in the meaning love and to be able use them as guides to connect to others - to be able form long lasting meaningful relationships throughout life. To be able to fully develop all the God given talents that a person has received and to be able to use them in full force together with others - to learn to be part of something greater than oneself. This is the only way to experience true joy, happiness and peace - a peace that the world cannot take away. Now that is the psychological meaning of autonomy - it is that it mirrors in every way the meaning of love as Jesus has taught us, all. It is the ongoing dialogue between science and religion that guides a person through life and most definitely as one fully connect to others.

It is the destruction of a child’s autonomy that is “the mutilation of a child’s spirit” that is "the most deadly of all possible sins...(Erik Erikson)." The suppression of the child’s gay or bisexual sexual orientation is the mutilation of a child’s autonomy. What then is the fact that you end having the kind of personalities one has in the curia. Persons who are ridged, obsessive, joyless, completely dependent on outside rules - with no internalization of the meaning of love. They are not autonomous - they are lost - living the expectations that their parents set before them, which are all exterior signs of success. Their ability to internalize the true meaning of love was destroyed - when they were forced as children to suppress their God given gay or bisexual sexual orientation. We would find this to be emphatically true - if we but study the science of homosexuality in dialogue with Jesus's words of love. 





















If we would just sober-up and avoid a hysterical fanaticism of ignorance and begin to study the wealth of the scientific research produced over the past 60 years on how ‘sexual orientation’ operates in each human being - whether gay, straight or bisexual - in dialogue on the same level of professional competency of the Biblical exegesis on homosexuality, we would begin the process of knitting together - a clearer understanding of truth and a fuller meaning of love. Sharing ignorance of peoples biases and misconceptions of science and religion not based in factual truth - on homosexuality or sexual orientation - is as dangerous as the Nazi ideology of racial purity that led to the deaths of 70 million people at the end of World War 2. This is the dire warnings made by both St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI. Equally crucial to this process - is to follow Pope Francis’s description of the meaning of dialogue that it is not to be a “dialogue between the deaf…it [dialogue] requires a receptive attitude that welcomes suggestions and shares aspirations.” Pope Francis had began facilitating this process of an open discussion regarding respecting and valuing gay people during the first session of the Synod on Family 2014. Through Pope Francis’s efforts encouraging an open discussion on many family issues - it allowed a number of members of the hierarchy to make a historical - huge step forward in this regard of respecting and valuing gay people and their families, until it was met with such fierce hysterical ignorance and fear by a majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy that the dialogue ended abruptly. However, it was a huge start in initiating the process the dialogue between science and religion on the sexual orientation of gay people. It also exposed the intense homophobia that exist among the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy, including the identity of individual members.

We would learn from science why the members of the curia and hierarchy - with their over-the-top obsessive antigay crusade to completely silence all the knowledge of the emerging science on the sexual orientation of homosexuality for the past 60 years - why it has led to the Vatican being inundated with unending gay sex scandals i.e. 2017 “Vatican’s Swiss Guards Break Up a Drug-Fueled Gay Orgy,” 2013 “Priests In Panties,” 2010 - “Le Notti Brave Dei Preti Gay,” or “Good Nights Out for Gay Priests,” 2010 “Gay priests giving gay priests a bad name,” and “…the church's real problem is the closet (Bryan Cones).” The science on sexual orientation will all clearly establish the fact that a person’s sexual orientation cannot be suppressed or consciously controlled and that such efforts to personally to do so will more than likely lead to the over abundant gay sex scandals imploding endlessly at the Vatican. 



“The Church's Real Problem Is The CLOSET”













For the heart of this people has become dull,
With their ears they scarcely hear,
And they have closed their eyes,
Otherwise they would see with their eyes,
Hear with their ears,
And understand with their heart and return,
And I would heal them.’
Matthew 13:15

We will learn from studying the - science on sexual orientation that it is composed of interrelated biological and psychological processes that are not able to be consciously controlled or can they be suppressed. These interrelated processes function outside our conscious awareness - automatically and continuously throughout life as part of the autonomic nervous system - like the heart beating and breathing. The continuous functioning of our sexual orientation - is essential in meeting our most basic human need for love, attachment, intimacy, through which empathy is developed. The continuous functioning of our sexual orientation is as vital to human survival from the beginning of life to the end - as the heart beating and breathing. Any attempt, to force the suppression of a child’s gay sexual orientation, is the same as the heart or breathing rate - can cause a number of lifelong adverse effects, ranging anywhere from a persistent lifelong form of depression (dysthymia), to suicidal ideation, and from an obsessive dislike for gay people that is implicit, to explicit verbal expressions of hate, to lethal forms of violence, and torture.

Son of man, you live in the midst of the rebellious house, 
who have eyes to see but do not see, 
ears to hear but do not hear; 
for they are a rebellious house.
Ezekiel 12:2






























A person sexual orientation needs to be nurtured and respected from the very beginning of life and through a lifetime. It is the gay sexual orientation of a person that is not normally and nurtured, especially during early childhood years growing up gay. The harsh and brutal ignorant antigay social environments destroy a child, who is  growing up gay - ability to learn to trust his natural tendencies and expressions of love. Instead, they are continuously scattered beginning in early childhood and thought his life. No person can live without love - to be loved and to love and to fell one with another. Forcing a gay child to be straight (heterosexual) is the “the mutilation of a child’s spirit (Erik Erikson).” It is like suffocating a child’s ability to live and to connect to others, to form long, lasting and fulfilling relationships in life. The Vatican’s fierce taboo against gay marriage though completely void for the past 60 years of any dialogue on the science of homosexuality - is the fundamental cause of the barrage of the Vatican’s gay sex scandals. Instead, of men being encouraged to and respected for forming - a long term committed relationship with another man that they truly love and can build a life together - they are raised from early childhood to believe that loving another person of the same sex - is somehow a heinous sin against God. They are inhumanly forced from early childhood - by the influence the ignorance and fear of antigay social environmental norms - to completely suppress forever - their God given natural expression and need for love - which they absolutely no power to control. Who could do this to a child?!? Then when the pressure and isolation of any human contact growing up - gets to be intolerable they have an emotional explosion and act out sexually - however, not before they get intoxicated by drugs to numb out all insane twisted learning and false meaning to love, they had been forced fed. And then they are blamed and shamed for an inevitable situation that was bound to occur - all due to societal’s twisted understanding of homosexuality - void of any educated dialogue between science and religion. Who is to blame for these atrocities??? The men who acted out sexually??? Think again!!! This type of early childhood forced suppression of a child gay sexual orientation can lead to numerous forms of acting out: e.g. sexually, violence directed at person or persons perceived to be gay, or acting inwardly - depression, suicidal ideation, as well as, an endless number of addictions. So, before passing any judgment on those involved in the Vatican’s gay sex scandals look for the root cause - that will only be found in a true ongoing  open dialogue between science and religion on the sexual orientation of homosexuality and untwist the meaning of love.

I was astounded by Pope Benedict XVI’s words about truth, light, and love found in his encyclical Caritas in Veritate 2009. I was astounded and traumatized at the same time. This is because I realize that he could have only written these words from experience, which threw me back into his first 18 years of life - growing up, in Nazi Germany, that triggered in me memories of being traumatized by the content of the qualitative research I had done on the Holocaust in graduate school. Pope Benedict’s words so precisely describes the theological and psychological aspects of a social environment without love - it is terrorizing even to imagine. He so accurately described what it is like to live in a social environment where love means the opposite. It is a description that fits social environment of Nazi Germany, the social environment of the curia - as described by Pope Francis, especially in his Christmas address to the curia December 22, 2014 and the global social environment form by the dehumanizing effects of globalization. And the one common denominator found in all three is the arbitrary distortion of science. Again, it is the  B R E A C H  in the dialogue between science and religion, faith and reason that Pope Benedict XVI warns - “comes only at an enormous price to human development… (Caritas in Veritate)."

…Truth is the light that gives meaning and value to charity. That light is both the light of reason and the light of faith, through which the intellect attains to the natural and supernatural truth of charity: it grasps its meaning as gift, acceptance, and communion. Without truth, charity degenerates into sentimentality. Love becomes an empty shell, to be filled in an arbitrary way. In a culture without truth, this is the fatal risk facing love. It falls prey to contingent subjective emotions and opinions, the word “love” is abused and distorted, to the point where it comes to mean the opposite. Truth frees charity from the constraints of an emotionalism that deprives it of relational and social content, and of a fideism that deprives it of human and universal breathing-space. In the truth, charity reflects the personal yet public dimension of faith in the God of the Bible, who is both Agápe and Lógos: Charity and Truth, Love and Word… 
…Secularism and fundamentalism exclude the possibility of fruitful dialogue and effective cooperation between reason and religious faith. Reason always stands in need of being purified by faith: this also holds true for political reason, which must not consider itself omnipotent. For its part, religion always needs to be purified by reason in order to show its authentically human face. Any breach in this dialogue comes only at an enormous price to human development…

Autonomic Nervous System


The Eyes Have It: Sex and Sexual Orientation Differences in Pupil Dilation Patterns 
August 3. 2012   
       …pupil dilation to stimuli indicates activation of the autonomic nervous system. This system is associated with many automatic processes such as perspiration, digestion, blood pressure, and heart rate. For this reason, pupil dilation has been used as indicator of automatic response, for example, in studies of implicit reaction and cognitive load. Other research suggests that pupil dilation can reflect automatic attention, or attention that is likely not in the conscious control of participants. It is therefore unlikely that participants suppress pupil dilation to stimuli they are sexually attracted to. Pupil dilation patterns could therefore reflect, with high sensitivity, automatic attention related to sexual attraction and sexual orientation

Pupil dilation reveals sexual orientation in new study
August 6, 2012 - Cornell University

Eye pupils reveal sexual orientation, study shows
Aug. 6, 2012 - Cornell Chronicle
While the eyes may be the window to the soul, pupil dilation can reveal a person's sexual orientation, finds a new Cornell study. Pupils were found to widen most when study participants watched erotic videos of people they found attractive, thereby revealing where they were on the sexual spectrum from heterosexual to homosexual.
Although there was a popular belief that sexual orientation can be revealed by pupil dilation to attractive people, there was no scientific evidence until now. For the first time, researchers at Cornell used a specialized infrared lens to measure pupillary changes to participants watching erotic videos…
"We wanted to find an alternative measure that would be an automatic indication of sexual orientation but without being as invasive as previous measures. Pupillary responses are exactly that," said Gerulf Rieger, lead author and Cornell postdoctoral associate, who conducted the study with Ritch C. Savin-Williams, professor of human development and director of the Sex and Gender Lab at Cornell. 
"With this new technology, we are able to explore sexual orientation of people who would never participate in a study on genital arousal, such as people from traditional cultures," said Rieger. "This will give us a much better understanding how sexuality is expressed across the planet." 
The new study adds considerably to the field of sexuality research than merely a novel measure, say the authors. As expected, heterosexual men showed strong pupillary responses to sexual videos of women, and little to men; heterosexual women, however, showed pupillary responses to both sexes. This result confirms previous research suggesting that women have a different type of sexuality than men. 
Moreover, the new study feeds into a long-lasting debate on male bisexuality. Previous notions were that most bisexual men do not base their sexual identity on their physiological sexual arousal but on romantic and identity issues. Contrary to this claim, bisexual men in the new study showed substantial pupil dilations to sexual videos of both men and women…

Eye-Opener: Why Do Pupils Dilate in Response to Emotional States?
December 7, 2012
It has been said that the eyes are windows to the soul. 
Research has at least shown that the apertures of our eyes offer a glimpse into the mind
…The visual cortex in the back of the brain assembles the actual images we see. But a different, older part of the nervous system—the autonomic— manages the continuous tuning of pupil size (along with other involuntary functions such as heart rate and perspiration). Specifically, it dictates the movement of the iris to regulate the amount of light that enters the eye, similar to a camera aperture. The iris is made of two types of muscle: a ring of sphincter muscles that encircle and constrict the pupil down to a couple of millimeters across to prevent too much light from entering; and a set of dilator muscles laid out like bicycle spokes that can expand the pupil up to eight millimeters—approximately the diameter of a chickpea—in low light. 
Stimulation of the autonomic nervous system's sympathetic branch, known for triggering "fight or flight" responses when the body is under stress, induces pupil dilation. Whereas stimulation of the parasympathetic system, known for "rest and digest" functions, causes constriction. Inhibition of the latter system can therefore also cause dilation. The size of the pupils at any given time reflects the balance of these forces acting simultaneously. 
The pupil response to cognitive and emotional events occurs on an even smaller scale than the light reflex, with changes generally less than half a millimeter. By recording subjects' eyes with infrared cameras and controlling factors that might affect pupil size, such as ambient brightness, color and distance, scientists can use pupil movements as a proxy for other processes, like mental strain… 
Scientists have since used pupillometry to assess everything from sleepiness, introversion and sexual interest to race bias, schizophrenia, moral judgment, autism and depression. And whereas they haven't been reading people's thoughts per se, they've come pretty close…

Homophobia Is Related to a Low Interest in Sexuality in General: An Analysis of Pupillometric Evoked Responses
The Journal of Sexual Medicine
October 2016 Volume 13, Issue 10, Pages 1539–1545
Introduction
A recent study by Cheval et al (J Sex Med 2016;13:825–834) found that individuals high in homophobia look significantly less long at sex-related photographs, regardless of their nature (ie, homosexual or heterosexual). Because viewing time is under some conscious control, this result could indicate that individuals high in homophobia have a low sexual interest in any sexual stimuli or are consciously motivated to avoid sexual material in line with their conscious values

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT) 
May 17, 2017
Commemoration and Call to Action
On May 17, 1990, the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization approved the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD 10), which no longer listed homosexuality as a diagnosis. Launched in 2004, the International Day Against Homophobia commemorating that day has become a global occasion to educate about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, and to advocate for sensible public policies regarding LGBT people.
Now called the International day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT), the observance has caught on widely as an international opportunity for individuals, groups and organizations anywhere to do anything they wish to mark the day. The IDAHOT website features numerous action ideas and reports detailing the wide range of activities from years past.   
Theme for 2017: Families
Each year has a different theme around which new resources and ideas for actions are developed. The theme for 2017 is families, with a focus includes both the role of families in the well-being of their LGBTIQ members and respect for the rights of LGBTIQ families (rainbow families)…

Catholic plan to combat homophobic bullying praised by education experts
Policy praised as showing messages of the Safe Schools program are compatible with religious education
Thursday 1 June 2017 
Education experts have praised a new policy developed by Catholic schools to combat transphobic and homophobic bullying as a “terrific resource”, saying it proves the messages of the Safe Schools program are compatible with religious education.
The “safe and inclusive learning communities” policy was developed by Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA), the education arm of the Christian Brothers, which operates more than 50 Catholic schools in Australia.
The policy states that those schools have a responsibility to provide a “safe and inclusive learning environments for all students, in particular for same-sex attracted and gender diverse young people” and argues that position is backed in scripture and by Pope Francis in his Joy of Love address in March 2016.
“Our schools have a moral and legal responsibility to ensure that each student receives an education free from discrimination and bullying irrespective of their sexual orientation and gender,” the policy states. “More importantly, Edmund Rice inspires us to give particular care to young people who might otherwise be excluded and rejected.”…

The child learns not to trust those feelings of love - however, this means the child is suppressing his need for love. The outward expression of the child’s sexual orientation is suppressed but the emotional need for love remains operative - 24/7 throughout life. When the child reaches the age of puberty - the stage of life during which adolescents reach sexual maturity and they will be automatically sexually aroused to persons corresponding the their respective sexual orientation. This means that the gay adolescent will be sexual aroused by persons of the same sex and a heterosexual adolescent by persons of the opposite sex. This sexual arousal - attraction is resistant to change and it will remain this way throughout life. 
A child as young as 4 and 5 years of age - will do anything to please and avoid disapproval of his parents and instantly will suppress any visible behavioral actions from his parents and even from himself. And here begins what Erik Erikson defines as - “the mutilation of a child’s spirit.” A traumatized child out of fear will unquestioningly obey whatever his parents say and come to rigidly believe that his natural expression of love - is bad and therefore he is bad. The child will no longer trust his natural expressions of love and to avoid any further traumatizing disapproval of his parents - the child will rigidly follow his parental rules

However, the reality about sexual orientation whether it is gay, straight or bisexual - it cannot be permanently suppressed or changed. It is forever continuously functioning autonomically - like our hearts beating or our breathing - it is operates automatically, not under our conscious control regulating our bodily functions - sustaining our lives. In brief, sexual orientation is all about our most basic human emotional need that we cannot live without - love and human attachment. Attractions and the need for love, are forever operative - out of our conscious control and no matter how hard we try to suppress our sexual orientation - it cannot be done.

These are lifelong harmful effects, and depending on the severity of an authoritarian parental suppression of a child’s gay sexual orientation, range anywhere, varying degrees of intensity, from: depression and anxiety, to suicidal ideation, to problems in forming close, fulling and lifelong relationships, to a marked form of aggressiveness and interpersonal hostility, to violent behavior directed indiscriminately at all gay people (http://www.rochester.edu/news/show.php?id=4040). 


PARENTING AND HOMOPHOBIA 
Parental Autonomy Support and Discrepancies Between Implicit and Explicit Sexual Identities: Dynamics of Self-Acceptance and Defense - 2012 
When individuals grow up with autonomy-thwarting parents, they may be prevented from exploring internally endorsed values and identities and as a result shut out aspects of the self perceived to be unacceptable. Given the stigmatization of homosexuality, individuals perceiving low autonomy support from parents may be especially motivated to conceal same-sex sexual attraction, leading to defensive processes such as reaction formation… 
…Psychodynamic traditions hold that people have a preferred view of themselves, which may not reflect reality. When this idealized view is threatened by contradictory thoughts or feelings, people engage in one or more unconscious processes to defend against the threat to self. Among defensive processes that have been recognized as having some empirical support is reaction formation, a process indicated in the modern body of research on self-esteem preservation (e.g., Baumeister, Dale, & Sommer, 1998).  Reaction formation refers to the process of adopting values or beliefs, or engaging in behaviors, that are in opposition to feelings or impulses experienced within oneself that are deemed unacceptable. Empirical work has shown reaction formation processes with respect to sexism (Sherman & Garkin, 1980), sex guilt (Morokoff, 1985), and prejudice (Dutton & Lake, 1973), indicating that individuals sometimes defend against self-relevant, threatening information by engaging in opposing behaviors…

A child may have learned out of fear a being abandoned by his parents to dissociate from any conscious thought of his gay sexual orientation. To maintained this mental dissociation - which is completely unrealistic and unnatural - like the practice of Chinese foot binding (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_bindingthat forever deforms the feet - takes an enormous amount of psychic energy. In addition, it will increasingly demand even more psychic energy - to keep this unnatural suppression, as the child grows towards puberty and on into adulthood - right through to old, old age. You will notice the intense emotional reaction - at the mere mention of the word “gay” or “homosexual.” It tends to create an immediate - emotional outburst and without any reasonable explanation on the order of soldiers returning from war - suffering from “shell shock” “battle fatigue” “operational exhaustion” “Post-traumatic stress disorder"(George Carlin 




This seems to help explained why there has been for the past 60 years the complete ignoring and silencing of any science on homosexual sexual orientation by the part of the better majority of the members of curia and hierarchy. Notice the striking contrast between the hierarchy from central Europe who grow up around or after the demise of Hitler and the Nazi regime - have dominated powerful positions in the curia - are fiercely and obsessively anti-gay. Now, contrast this hierarchical homophobic behavior - with Pope Francis’s treatment of gay people, including gay priests. The contrast in the treatment of gay people is completely the opposite - as different as night and day. 











Public execution of Polish priests and civilians in Bydgoszcz's Old Market Square, 9 September 1939










Nazis Unleash Vicious Attack on Roman Catholic Church  
Chicago Daily Tribune: - May 29, 1937
The hierarchy grew up in the extremely toxic anti-gay social environment caused by Hitler and the Nazi regime - highly publicized "immorality" trials - the false accusations of the Catholic Church - of the outspoken anti-nazi clergy - of the crime of being homosexuals in order to silence and remove them to concentration camps. Pope Francis - grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina - the exact opposite social environment - not anti-gay - where it has been the accepted custom, since the late 1800s for men to dance the tango together and continues to the present.

A brief Tango History 
by Murray Pfeffer
     The Tango, often called 'The Argentine Tango', is Argentina's contribution to the world of dance. The Tango came from the brothels and low cafes of Buenos Aires at the turn of the century. However, at it's very beginning, it was a ballet-like dance between two men, which, just a little later, became the obscene dance of the brothels where both men and women had the opportunity to rub their bodies together. Over the years, the Tango has changed becoming an elegant and stylish dance evoking a picture of high society, with women in sleek glittering evening gowns and men in tuxedos and tails…


Tango Macho - “Los Hermanos Macana”

Tango: Theme of Class and Nation 
Julie M. Taylor 
Ethnomusicology, Vol. 20, No. 2. (May, 1976), pp. 273-291.  
...An examination of the continuing role of the tango in Argentina today entails a definition of the interrelated elements of tango as folklore, song, and dance. The following investigation deals with three groups of themes: those consisting of the characteristics of the environment which produced the tango, those forming the moral or emotional base of the tango and explicitly stated in its lyrics, and those found in the choreography of the dance itself. 
…Perhaps the most striking characteristic of the groups of tango enthusiasts is the fact that the membership is exclusively male. Not only that, but none of the female friends or relatives of the members show the slightest evidence of interest in the tango. Active interest in the dance complex appears to be entirely male; women develop an interest in tango only if they develop interest in an hombre tanguero. This seems to be a pattern which has not changed much over the years from the days when men danced together to the organitos and in the brothels through the era of the cafe-bar to the present...

Excerpts:



















Holy Family Parish, Sparta, Michigan 

The hierarchy and Pope Francis -  vividly validated the reasoning for the immediacy - why I came out in March 1997, as pastor of Holy Family Parish, Sparta, Michigan - for the protection of gay children, as young as 4 and 5 years of age - from the lifelong harmful effects growing up gay or bisexual - during early childhood caused by the influence of anti-gay social and religious norms. These lifelong harmful effects can be clearly observed in the curia and hierarchy fierce homophobic behavior - their inability to form life-long meaningful and fulfilling relationships, including their inability to connect with others, their lack of empathy for others, their over concerns about outward appearance, status and careers, as noted in Pope Francis "Christmas address to the curia", December 22, 2014.  It is not only their complete absence of maintaining any ongoing dialogue between science and religion on the topic homosexual sexual orientation for the past 60 years, which is directly against the words of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI , it is also by their immediate emotional explosive outbursts to the 2014 midterm report of Synod session on Family - that listed notes of the open discussion that took place -  discussing ways of how to be pastorally more welcoming to gay people and their families, including ways of valuing long term committed gay relationships. There was a lot of emotional outbursts among the curia and hierarchyhowever, there is absolutely - no detail reasoning to substantiate their extraordinary hostile and aggressive reactions to the report. So intense was their fierce emotional reaction that the continuation of this open discussion on gay people scheduled for the second synod on Family session 2015 had to be canceled.

Sadly, one cannot, also, help to notice the enormous amount of the emotional psychic energy that is use by the curia and the hierarchy completely absorbed in an anti-gay obsession and the enormous amount of Pope Francis emotional psychic energy is used in reaching out to all people globally in nearly every situation in extraordinary effort to be inclusive of everyone, particularly those most forgotten and are in need of our help. Pope Francis has been relentless in this regard since his election to the papacy in March 2013.






















As Church Shifts, a Cardinal Welcomes Gays; They Embrace a ‘Miracle’
The New York Times - June 13, 2017
NEWARK — The word “pilgrimage” usually evokes visions of far-off, exotic places, but for some 100 gay and lesbian Catholics and their families, a pilgrimage to the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart here on a recent Sunday was more like a homecoming.
The doors to the cathedral were opened to them, and they were welcomed personally by the leader of the Archdiocese of Newark, Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin. They were seated on folding chairs at the cathedral’s center, in front of the altar in the towering sanctuary, under the blue-tinted glow of stained glass.
“I am Joseph, your brother,” Cardinal Tobin told the group, which included lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Catholics from around New York and the five dioceses in New Jersey. “I am your brother, as a disciple of Jesus. I am your brother, as a sinner who finds mercy with the Lord.”
The welcoming of a group of openly gay people to Mass by a leader of Cardinal Tobin’s standing in the Roman Catholic Church in this country would have been unthinkable even five years ago. But Cardinal Tobin, whom Pope Francis appointed to Newark last year, is among a small but growing group of bishops changing how the American church relates to its gay members. They are seeking to be more inclusive and signaling to subordinate priests that they should do the same…
Four years ago, Pope Francis shook the Catholic world with his comment about gay priests seeking the Lord: “Who am I to judge?” But it was unclear how his words would affect Catholics seeking acceptance in the pews…
But gestures like Cardinal Tobin’s are evidence that Pope Francis’ words are having an impact…

 DR. EVELYN HOOKER


In the USA, 1957Evelyn Hooker’s most notable and ground breaking research proving that homosexuality is not a mental illness was completed called:-

 in which she administered several psychological tests to groups of self-identified male homosexuals and heterosexuals and asked experts to identify the homosexuals and rate their mental health. The experiment, which other researchers subsequently repeated, argues that homosexuality is not a mental disorder, as there was nodetectable difference between homosexual and heterosexual men in terms of mental adjustment... Photo




Being Gay Is Just as Healthy as Being Straight
Evelyn Hooker's pioneering research debunked the popular myth that homosexuals are inherently less mentally healthy than heterosexuals, leading to significant changes in how psychology views and treats people who are gay...
Hooker's work was the first to empirically test the assumption that gay men were mentally unhealthy and maladjusted. The fact that no differences were found between gay and straight participants sparked more research in this area and began to dismantle the myth that homosexual men and women are inherently unhealthy.
In conjunction with other empirical results, this work led the American Psychiatric Association to remove homosexuality from the DSM in 1973 (it had been listed as a sociopathic personality disorder). In 1975, the American Psychological Association publicly supported this move, stating that "homosexuality per se implies no impairment in judgment, reliability or general social and vocational capabilities…(and mental health professionals should) take the lead in removing the stigma of mental illness long associated with homosexual orientation." Although prejudice and stigma still exist in society, this research has helped millions of gay men and women gain acceptance in the mental health community.

AUSCHWITZ -- CHRISTMAS 2008 -- A flashback far more severe than in --- BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN – December 26, 2008 – Fr. Marty Kurylowicz




I have been so saddened by Pope Benedict XVI's cruel words to LGBTQ people around the world, to their parents, families and friends, most ESPECIALLY TO CHILDREN. After reading the accounts of this human travesty, I did not know where to find comfort or hope. And then I thought about your blog. And just like receiving a wonderful Christmas present, sure enough I found the hope and comfort I needed to hear. Photo 

I am a priest and a clinical psychologist (MS). And for one of my research projects I chose to do a qualitative research project of the recorded verbal accounts of survivors of the Holocaust, 50 years after the event. It was a difficult research project, because I could not make sense of one of the accounts of the survivors. 

For example, one survivor was describing what it was like riding the train to AUSCHWITZ, but he was describing how he was trying to make conversation with a girl on the train. I listened and wrote out this one account almost 30 times but I just was not getting it. I could not understand how this man could be talking about wanting to make conversation with this girl on the same train to AUSCHWITZ!?! 

Because I had taught high school religion classes for nearly 20 years, it hit me hard, like a flash of lightning. Instantly, all the pieces came together, so fast. Though this survivor was in his late 60’s when he gave his account of his story on audiotape, he was remembering the events that took place, but naturally they were recounted through the mind of a teenager, the age he was on the train to AUSCHWITZ. That is why the dialogue wasn’t making any sense. I was thinking of him as an old man because the voice on the audiotape was the voice of a 68-year-old. As shocking as a bomb going off, all the different aspects of the psychological developmental stages of a teenager kicked in. I realized only too fully that he was just a young normal teenager on that train!!! And so was the girl he was trying to make conversation, and their moms and dads were there with them!!! There was no way to pretend I did not realize what I discovered. It kept hitting me: this is not some script from a movie or TV miniseries on the Holocaust. No; as much as I wished it were. The reality of this horror hit me all at once, on so many different levels of consciousness: what an unbelievable horror it was!!! How could we treat human beings like this! I remember when the realization of the magnitude of this horror first hit me, like an instant reflex. I threw down the transcript I was holding as if it were a blazing hot poker. It kept hitting me over and over again that this is not a movie script or some kind of play – this really happened! It really happened! Oh, my God, how could this have happened!?!!!

My supervisor told me at the time that I was traumatized by the oral content. Qualitative research is an attempt to understand the complexity of emotions, the kinds of emotions, and the degree of intensity involved. Our emotions are what allow us to connect with other human beings. We identify with the non-verbal quality of emotions more immediately and strongly than with the words used to express them. The non-verbal qualities include tone of voice, eye contact, facial expression, body posture, and gestures, all of which express emotions. Emotions are why we can connect with people through time, across cultures, and individually. It is the expression of human emotions in the arts that makes some works of art timeless, because they continually speak to all people through the ages. 

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.

It hit me the way it did when I realized that the research I was doing about a Holocaust survivor, a man 68 years old telling his story, who was remembering what it was like to be on the train to AUSCHWITZ, from the perspective of a young teenage boy who just wanted to talk to a girl. It seemed like the same kind of horror, a tacit assumption that some people don't count and can be disposed of without remorse. Could it be that Benedict XVI is unconsciously repeating Hitler's crime against humanity by taking on a long-accepted social attitude from that period of time? 

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 HOMOSEXUALS? 

I think in truth on a much deeper level I was frightened, really frightened, to hear Pope Benedict XVI’s Christmas remarks against homosexuals and transgendered human beings and even more frightened by the silence from the larger global community of human beings. What is so frightening is, even if there is agreement that one person does not matter or is not important, in truth then no one matters. Therefore, when I thought about your blog and what you did on October 5, 2008, I felt more reassured, I felt hope, and I felt comforted. NOW, isn’t that the true meaning of Christmas? 

God Bless you,

Fr. Marty Kurylowicz

I n a t t e n t i o n 
Jack Drescher, MD,  2004
What psychological mechanisms facilitate separating one's sexual identity from the rest of one's persona? Sullivan's (1956) concept of dissociation may be illuminating, particularly its most common aspect: selective inattention. A ubiquitous, nonpathological process, selective inattention makes life more manageable, like tuning out the background noise on a busy street. However, through dissociation of anxiety-provoking knowledge about the self, a whole double life can be lived and yet, in some ways, not be known. Clinical presentations of closeted gay people may lie somewhere in  severity  between selective inattention--most commonly seen in the case of homosexually self-aware patients thinking about "the possibility" that they might be gay--to more severe dissociation--in which any hint of same-sex feelings resides totally out of conscious awareness. More severe forms of dissociation are commonly observed in married men who are homosexually self-aware but cannot permit the thought of themselves as gay (Roughton, 2002)…

Given Uganda's homophobia, why does it lead the way in Googling gay porn? 
10 January 2014
Is there a connection, then, between homophobia and suppressed homosexuality, along the lines of "me thinks he protesteth too much"? Is it that homosexual desires, when shut out because of some sense of shame, can easily express themselves as a form of homophobia? When the US conservative evangelical pastor Ted Haggard, well known for his anti-gay preaching, was discovered to have been paying a masseur for gay sex, he explained that "I think I was partially so vehement because of my own war". Freud coined the description "reaction-formation", in which anxiety-generating feelings are masked by an exaggerated reaction in the opposite direction. There is some experimental evidence to back this up, with one study showing that 20% of those who self-described as "highly straight" indicated some level of same-sex attraction. This discrepancy is often put down to highly controlling parents who do not allow their children room to explore their sexual identity.
Yes, of course, there are many people who do not experience same-sex attraction who are anti-gay. But one of the features of reaction-formation is its paranoia and lack of proportion. And this is precisely what the scaremongering nonsense about gay people being out to get our children – a common line in the Ugandan debate – clearly demonstrates. In conservative religious environments where God is depicted as a powerful all-controlling parent, it makes sense to me that this reaction-formation will be particularly strong…  




Fr. Marty Kurylowicz - June 9, 2017 
Excerpts:

A child’s sexual orientation is not about sexual behavior - it is about love, wanting to feel one with another. Depending on the severity of this rejection of a child’s expression of love - the child wants to desperately please his parents and will learn to hid from his parent such emotions of love that are disturbing to them. He will even hide them from himself and thus begins the mental dissociation of this child - attempting to suppress the never ending - regular functioning of his sexual orientation of the emotional impulses - to be loved and to love and to feel one with another. However, as explained above - a person’s sexual orientation like the heart beating, breathing, sexual arousal, etc., are all under the control autonomic nervous systemthat operates automatically and unconsciously - they cannot be suppressed. 


Sexual orientation refers to an enduring pattern of emotional, romantic and/or sexual attractions to men, women or both sexes... http://www.apa.org/topics/lgbt/orientation.aspx

Autonomic nervous system
  The autonomic nervous system is a control system that acts largely unconsciously and regulates bodily functions such as the heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, pupillary response, urination, and sexual arousalhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomic_nervous_system#cite_note-Human_Physiology_-_Janig-2

The Eyes Have It: Sex and Sexual Orientation Differences in Pupil Dilation Patterns
August 3. 2012   
pupil dilation to stimuli indicates activation of the autonomic nervous system. This system is associated with many automatic processes such as perspiration, digestion, blood pressure, and heart rate. For this reason, pupil dilation has been used as indicator of automatic response, for example, in studies of implicit reaction and cognitive load. Other research suggests that pupil dilation can reflect automatic attention, or attention that is likely not in the conscious control of participants. It is therefore unlikely that participants suppress pupil dilation to stimuli they are sexually attracted to. Pupil dilation patterns could therefore reflect, with high sensitivity, automatic attention related to sexual attraction and sexual orientation
