Science  + 
+ Religion = Truth = L O V E

Caritas in veritate
Pope Benedict XVI 2009











Letter to Father George V. Coyne, Director of the Vatican Observatory (June 1, 1988) 
 John Paul II 
…By encouraging openness between the Church and the scientific communities, we are not envisioning a disciplinary unity between theology and science like that which exists within a given scientific field or within theology proper. As dialogue and common searching continue, there will be grow towards mutual understanding and a gradual uncovering of common concerns which will provide the basis for further research and discussion. Exactly what form that will take must be left to the future. What is important, as we have already stressed, is that the dialogue should continue and grow in depth and scope. In the process we must overcome every regressive tendency to a unilateral reductionism, to fear, and to self-imposed isolation. What is critically important is that each discipline should continue to enrich, nourish and challenge the other to be more fully what it can be and to contribute to our vision of who we are and who we are becoming… 
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 



CARITAS IN VERITATE
BENEDICT XVI - 2009
 3. …Only in truth does charity shine forth, only itruth can charity be authentically livedTruth 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.
  4. Because it is filled with truth, charity can be understood in the abundance of its values, it can be shared and communicated. Truth, in fact, is lógos which creates diá-logos, and hence communication and communion. Truth, by enabling men and women to let go of their subjective opinions and impressions, allows them to move beyond cultural and historical limitations and to come together in the assessment of the value and substance of things. Truth opens and unites our minds in the lógos of love: this is the Christian proclamation and testimony of charity…
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…

Absence of Science 



On
Homosexuality 

Nazi Recipe for Genocide 
I think I can explained to some substantial degree - the psychological and historical aspects of how the obsessive antigay violence of the majority of the men in the curia and hierarchy came to be and how they were picked for top leader positions in the Church, without having the proper credential to hold those positions. It appears to be primarily centered around how homosexuals were treated in any particularly social environment and the effect that it has on children who are growing up through their early childhood psychological developmental years, especially if they are gay children. 


Antigay Social Environments
And
Forced Suppression - Child’s Gay Sexual Orientation

The situation is quite traumatic. There is no need to be judgmental, because what has happened to these men - could have happened to any of us. However, the situation must be remedied - immediately and not be allowed to continue, because it is threatening the safety and well-being of lives globally. The truth based on the dialogue between the science and religion on homosexuality - clearly reveals that the world indeed does not need to be  protected from homosexuality. Rather, as the facts will prove that it is quite the opposite, the world needs to be protected from the forced suppression of a gay child’s sexual orientation during his early childhood years growing up gay. These same facts, according to according Caritas in veritate - Pope Benedict XVI 2009 (http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/encyclicals/documents/hf_ben-xvi_enc_20090629_caritas-in-veritate.htmwill prove that the complete absence of any dialogue on the science of homosexuality renders the teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic Church on homosexuality not to be based on truth and therefore is not based in love. Instead, as Benedict XVI explains, the meaning of love in this regard has been so abused that it has been twisted around to mean the exact opposite. In truth, due to the complete absence of science - these are pseudo-teachings, they are in fact - an unconscious childhood traumatic reenactment of Hitler’s and the Nazi regime’s recipe for genocide formulated in the pseudo-science of ideology of Nazism. They have been enshrined by “amateurs-turned-theologians (http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1986-09-28/news/8603120562_1_archbishop-weakland-seattle-archbishop-raymond-hunthausen-seattle-archdiocese)” in the curia - idolizing proteges - into the false “moral edifice of the church” that “is likely to fall like a house of cards (https://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/speeches/2013/september/documents/papa-francesco_20130921_intervista-spadaro.html).” Further, rationale to follow below 

The men of the curia and hierarchy, though not all, from overwhelming documentation and their personal interviews - appear to have been seriously harmed growing up gay in antigay social environments, particularly during Hitler and the Nazi regime 1933-1945, including US Senator Joseph McCarty from Wisconsin in 1950s. These political leaders had built on the ignorance of societal antigay prejudices, such as - falsely claiming, without any factual evidence, that homosexuality is connected to pedophilia. They did this in ordered to heighten the emotional aspect of societal antigay prejudices to the level of hysteria. Simultaneously, they were purposely overriding and forcefully silencing the rationale that would deflate the growing contagion effect of this mindless mass hysteria of their increased ignorance of societal antigay prejudices. It then was exploited as an effective political weapon to be used as a smokescreen: for Hitler to unimpededly promote his ideology of racial "purity" (the superiority of the "Germanic race”…an Aryan "master race” https://www.ushmm.org/outreach/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007679)  the central core of Nazism and for McCarthy for his own personal notoriety and selfish gain.





Pope Francis provides a major contrast between these two types of severe antigay social environments having been raised in the social environment of Argentina where comparatively such societal antigay prejudices were and still are practically non-existent. This due to the fact that in Argentina - men have been dancing the tango together since the late 1800s. Francis shows no animosity towards gay people e.g. “Who am I to judge?” The contrast between Francis’s treatment of gay people - compared to the reaction of the curia and hierarchy to gay people is enormous. It is a striking clear contrast between genuine love and pure hate - and this tells us nearly everything. 

Curia and Hierarchy 
Repressed Homosexuals

It, first, of all tells us that the majority of members of the curia and hierarchy are intensely repressed homosexuals. This strikingly intense emotional strong hostility of the curia and the hierarchy towards gay people without any substantiated reasoning based on the dialogue between science and religion on homosexuality, as well as, their adamant refusal or inability enter into any rational dialogue on the topic - collectively reveals that their fierce hostility indiscriminately directed towards all gay people - is unconscious hostility coming from within themselves, individually. 

Having been forced to suppress their gay sexual orientation during their early childhood years growing up gay they will have internalized the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms of the social environments, in which they were raised. This fiercely intense unconscious antigay hostility is directed at themselves - individually - for their personal failure to be able to completely repress the continuous and ongoing functioning of the interrelated biological (physical) and psychological (emotional) processes of their gay sexual orientation. Even though they are dissociated from the reality that they are gay, they will still automatically feel physically and emotionally sexually aroused, anytime and anywhere at the thought or sight or image of an attractive male. Because they have been dissociated from the fact that they are gay, since their early childhood years, for some of these repressed gay adults, they may not even recognized when they are physically and emotionally sexually aroused by attractive males, a dangerous situation, something like driving drunk. For others, who are not so completely dissociated from being gay - they will endlessly and strenuously try to suppress their gay sexual feelings and feel tremendous guilt, shame and self-loathing whenever they automatically feel physically and emotionally sexually aroused by the thought, image or presence of an attractive male.They were made to  believe from childhood that they are indeed able to completely suppress their gay feelings, because they were told that those feelings are evil. 


The truth, the reality of the functioning of a person's sexual orientation, whether gay, straight or bisexual is not under their conscious control, as it is under the control of the autonomic nervous system, the same as the heart beating or breathing. As very young children they were forced to suppress their gay sexual orientation that they had (1) no control over nor (2) any conceptual understanding of. This an unidentified form of traumatic child abuse the has lifelong harmful effects - these lifelong harmful effects are easily identified in the immaturity of the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy, the men who never grew up.  


Affect regulation and defenses against affects 
The failure to recognize one’s affects as part of one’s own information processing apparatus, tends to cause an individual to feel ruled by those emotions. Such people tend to build up their emotions to a very high intensity based on early experiences of using them to control the parental objects. Retaining such strategies in adult life may lead to a person behaving in an “out of control” fashion. Affect maturation and the development of affect tolerance during the latency period represents the most important single factor towards making possible the maturational developments in adolescence. Such achievements require the capacity to grieve effectively, making possible the renunciation of the infantile experience of the parents, and of oneself. A parallel process is the integration of the various self- representations derived from the several psychosexual developmental stages –which takes place in adolescence potentially achieving a consciously recognized wholeness of the self…

Chapter 8: Psychoanalytic Approaches to Trauma: 
A Forty-Year Retrospective 
Henry Krystal MD - PDF file
Henry Krystal, M.D., author of Integration & Self-Healing, Affect, Trauma, Alexithymia, 1988

Forcing a gay child to permanently suppress his gay sexual orientation - is a traumatic situation for a child - because the child wants to please his parents out of fear of being abandoned by them the child will endlessly try to suppress his gay sexual orientation. However, a gay child will find as he reaches the onset of puberty that he will, like a heterosexual child, be unable to suppress the awakening of his gay sexual maturity. Depending the degree of intensity and the way - that the gay child was forced to suppress his gay sexual orientation - will established how dissociated he is from even thought that he is gay. Regardless, his gay sexual orientation will function continuously just like his heart beating and his breathing, which also are not under his conscious control. To maintain this dissociation from one’s gay sexual orientation will take an enormous amount of psychic energy to do so, as well as, stalling his psychological development to reach maturity, including resulting in a number of mental health complications, not the least is developing an obsessive nature.

Sexual Orientation - Not Chosen 
Cannot be Changed 
Cannot be Permanently Suppressed
Mentally Dissociation = Dangerous & Violent 
Acting Out Behaviors


No one choses their sexual orientation and the gender that a person fines attractive remains stable throughout that person’s life, it identifies and confirms a person’s sexual orientation. A person’s sexual orientation functions automatically and continuously 24/7 outside a person’s conscious awareness. What this means is that a person will experience being emotionally and physically sexually aroused whenever he comes in contact with an attractive person of gender that corresponds to his sexual orientation. If the male person is gay - then whenever he sees or views images of or has thoughts of an attractive male person - he will automatically feel emotionally and physically sexually aroused. This sexual arousal happens outside the person’s conscious control. This has been demonstrated in the above research study of 2012, at Cornell University,  “The Eyes Have It: Sex and Sexual Orientation Differences in Pupil Dilation Patterns.”

Biological (Physical) and 
Psychological (Emotional Processes of 
Sexual Orientation


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 arousal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomic_nervous_system

The research study of 2012, at Cornell University found that measurements of pupil dilation taken while study participants viewed erotic videos of people they found attractive - was a robust indicator of - a person’s sexual orientation and of the activation of the autonomic nervous system. The results of bisexual men was of significant importance in this new study that revealed they had substantial pupil dilations to sexual videos of both men and women.












 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 Photo


There are three points that strongly indicate that the majority of members of the curia and hierarchy are intensely repressed homosexuals. They are their ruthless obsessive antigay crusade, the level of their immaturity and the implosion of their pervasive gay closeted adult sexual acting out scandals for the past several decades.


(1) Obsessive antigay crusade of the curia and hierarchy, past 30 years
  • Ruthless suppression of the science on homosexuality 
  • Silencing and removing anyone who openly discussed the science on homosexuality and/or were supported of gay people
(2) The pervasive level of immaturity - collectively demonstrated among the majority of the member of the curia and hierarchy
  • Maintaining complete ignorance of the science on homosexuality
  • Unduly - emotionally overwhelmed - Synod on Family 2014-2015 - by the open discussion supportive of gay people, their families, and the idea of valuing lifelong gay relationships 
  • Inability to work cooperatively with one another
  • Prone to constant infighting, vying for top positions, gossiping, cowardly behavior - backbiting, selfishness, jealousy, feelings of insecurity,… listed in Pope Francis’s Christmas address Dec. 22, 2014. 
(3) The Vatican’s omnipresent gay closeted adult sexual scandals involving members of the curia and hierarchy - though - NOT associated or connected to the criminal act of child sexual abuse - pedophilia


Curia and Hierarchy 
Immaturity

Pope Francis from the start 2013 has been challenging the obsessive antigay crusade of the curia and hierarchy that has been in existence for the past 30 years. Francis strenuously initiated the dialogue at the Synod on Family 2014-2015 on all family topics - urging the participants not to fear the established reprisals of the past and to speak freely. This included the dialogue on the topic of how to be more pastorally  welcoming and supportive of gay people and to their families, which led to the discussions of valuing the committed lifelong relationships of gay couples. And as reported this human dignity and respect shown towards gay people created an emotional tsunami explosion that circle the global by the majority of men in the curia and hierarchy - though completely void of any rationale to support their reaction, including their adamant refusal to enter into any dialogue on the topic or to allow any further dialogue on the topic to take place throughout the duration of the Synod on Family. Cardinal Raymond Burke exposed himself as the fiercely defiant assumed position of the CEO - the highest-ranking person fueling and leading this unending outburst of this emotional tidal wave of this unconsolable unadulterated frenzy though completely absence of any rational dialogue from science and scripture. He and others acted - like a two year child throwing a tantrum - the anal expulsive stage of child development. 

With Pope Benedict XVI in retirement - this unprecedented hierarchical explosive antigay tirade led by Cardinal Burke - took the spotlight off from Benedict, as being the sole instigator of this ruthlessly obsessive antigay crusade for the past 30 years. In fact, along with the Vatileaks 2012, the endless gay closeted sexual acting out episodes, the organizational structure of the Vatican was beginning to implode on itself, it exposed the magnitude of how pervasive this unison of this unprecedented hierarchical antigay frenzy defiantly void of any supportive rationale - was in the Church built on nothing more than the hysteria of repressed antigay early childhood memories that was controlling the Church. All this began with the societal antigay prejudices of their particular social environment that they were raised in. They substituted seeking God's truth and began worshiping the fear and ignorance of unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms as their god, because that was what they were forced to believe, as very young children.

Not motived by truth or love - Burke and the others assumed the dictatorial authority that they can arbitrarily permanently suppress any and all dialogue on the lives of gay people, destroying the lives of millions of people, including children - all falsely in the name of God.  Their assumed dictatorial authority over the lives of gay people completely void of the science on homosexuality - is a fantasy of their gay closeted collective immaturity. This was and still is a diabolical antigay fantasy because it is not built on the reality of truth that comes from the ongoing dialogue between science and religion on homosexuality and without truth there is no love - according to Caritas in veritate - Pope Benedict XVI 2009 (http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/encyclicals/documents/hf_ben-xvi_enc_20090629_caritas-in-veritate.htm). This diabolical antigay fantasy has been accepted by seemly all involved as reality and therefore it has been supported, promoted and allowed to be played out in the real world. For the most part it has been unchallenged over the past several decades, due to the fear of the ruthless and deceitful reprisals both from within and outside of the Vatican that was nationally established during the Vatican’s investigation of Archbishop Hunthausen in the 1980s. It has been said by other leading prelates at the time that the Vatican's cruel and demeaning treatment of Hunthausen was meant as a warning to intimate and instill fear in the opposition of other members of the hierarchy (http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1986-09-28/news/8603120562_1_archbishop-weakland-seattle-archbishop-raymond-hunthausen-seattle-archdiocese).

It is surprising how closely the curia’s composition and orchestration of their diabolical antigay fantasy followed the same formate of Hitler’s diabolical fantasy of Nazism built on the pseudoscience of racial purity, including how they both ruthlessly disposed of the opposition who dare to challenged the reality of their fantasies. This most unfortunately is not a coincidence that will be explained later. 

This is the shocking behavior that was being exposed at the Synod’s sessions 2014-2015 that has been in secret, behind the wall of the curia’s bureaucratic anonymity, running the Church with Benedict XVI being used as the fall guy. It does not appear to be totally willfully intended, as such by all involved. It is far more individually diversely complicated and is far from being a black and white situation. It is, however, a diabolical antigay fantasy though it is likely that it has never been perceived as such.


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. The forced suppression of a gay child’s sexual orientation - is the traumatic disruption of the development of emotions - there is no empathic caring of a gay child’s emotional development. We only have to look at the behavior of the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy to view the lifelong harmful effects of the traumatic disruption that has stalled their “gradual and orderly development of the human capacity to experience emotions.” A description of their the immaturity of their emotional development was given by Pope Francs at his Christmas address that he gave to the members of curia, Dec. 22, 2014.


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 neuroscience 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, p r o j e c t i o n, 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.” … Read more:  ( Henry Krystal - PDF http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCIQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ibrarian.net%2Fnavon%2Fpaper%2FChapter_8__Psychoanalytic_Approaches_to_Trauma__A.pdf%3Fpaperid%3D16436404&ei=GF21VNXKA9SqyASwnoDYBA&usg=AFQjCNHw0P8nuU0GEYdZs0ItaQKDfe2GLA&bvm=bv.83339334,d.aWw)

1. The disease of thinking we are “immortal”, “immune” or downright “indispensable, neglecting the need for regular check-ups. A Curia which is not self-critical, which does not keep up with things, which does not seek to be more fit, is a sick body… 
2. Another disease is the “Martha complex”, excessive busy-ness. It is found in those who immerse themselves in work and inevitably neglect “the better part”: sitting at the feet of Jesus (cf. Lk 10:38-42)… 
3. Then too there is the disease of mental and spiritual “petrification. It is found in those who have a heart of stone, the “stiff-necked” (Acts 7:51-60), in those who in the course of time lose their interior serenity, alertness and daring, and hide under a pile of papers, turning into paper pushers and not men of God (cf. Heb 3:12). It is dangerous to lose the human sensitivity that enables us to weep with those who weep and to rejoice with those who rejoice!… 
4. The disease of excessive planning and of functionalism. When the apostle plans everything down to the last detail and believes that with perfect planning things will fall into place, he becomes an accountant or an office manager. Things need to be prepared well, but without ever falling into the temptation of trying to contain and direct the freedom of the Holy Spirit, which is always greater and more flexible than any human planning (cf. Jn 3:8)… 
5. The disease of poor coordination. Once its members lose communion among themselves, the body loses its harmonious functioning and its 
equilibrium; it then becomes an orchestra which produces noise: its members do not work together and lose the spirit of fellowship and teamwork… 
6. There is also a “spiritual Alzheimer’s disease”…It involves a progressive decline in the spiritual faculties which in the long or short run greatly handicaps a person by making him incapable of doing anything on his own, living in a state of absolute dependence on his often imaginary perceptions… 
7. The disease of rivalry and vainglory.[11] When appearances, the colour of our clothes and our titles of honour become the primary object in life, we forget the words of Saint Paul: “Do nothing from selfishness or conceit but in humility count others better than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others” (Phil 2:3-4)… 
8. The disease of existential schizophrenia. This is the disease of those who live a double life, the fruit of that hypocrisy typical of the mediocre and of a progressive spiritual emptiness which no doctorates or academic titles can fill. It is a disease which often strikes those who abandon pastoral service and restrict themselves to bureaucratic matters, thus losing contact with reality, with concrete people… 
9. The disease of gossiping, grumbling and back-biting. I have already spoken many times about this disease, but never enough. It is a grave illness which begins simply, perhaps even in small talk, and takes over a person, making him become a “sower of weeds” (like Satan) and in many cases, cold-blooded killer of the good name of our colleagues and confrères. It is the disease of cowardly persons who lack the courage to speak out directly, but instead speak behind other people’s backs… 
10. The disease of idolizing superiors. This is the disease of those who court their superiors in the hope of gaining their favour. They are victims of careerism and opportunism; they honour persons and not God (cf. Mt 23:8- 12). They serve thinking only of what they can get and not of what they should give. Small-minded persons, unhappy and inspired only by their own lethal selfishness (cf. Gal 5:16-25). Superiors themselves could be affected by this disease, when they court their collaborators in order to obtain their submission, loyalty and psychological dependency, but the end result is a real complicity…
11. The disease of indifference to others. This is where each individual thinks only of himself and loses sincerity and warmth of human relationships. When the most knowledgeable person does not put that knowledge at the service of his less knowledgeable colleagues. When we learn something and then keep it to ourselves rather than sharing it in a helpful way with others. When out of jealousy or deceit we take joy in seeing others fall instead of helping them up and encouraging them… 
12. The disease of a lugubrious face. Those glum and dour persons who think that to be serious we have to put on a face of melancholy and severity, and treat others – especially those we consider our inferiors – with rigourbrusqueness and arrogance (having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one's own importance or abilities)… 
13. The disease of hoarding. When an apostle tries to fill an existential void in his heart by accumulating material goods, not out of need but only in order to feel secure
14. The disease of closed circles, where belonging to a clique becomes more powerful than belonging to the Body and, in some circumstances, to Christ himself…
15. Lastly: the disease of worldly profit, of forms of self-exhibition. When an apostle turns his service into power, and his power into a commodity in order to gain worldly profit or even greater power. This is the disease of persons who insatiably try to accumulate power and to this end are ready to slander, defame and discredit others, even in newspapers and magazines… 




On Gay Priests, Pope Francis Asks, ‘Who Am I to Judge?’ 
July 29, 2013
ROME — For generations, homosexuality has largely been a taboo topic for the Vatican, ignored altogether or treated as “an intrinsic moral evil,” in the words of the previous pope. 
In that context, brief remarks by Pope Francis suggesting that he would not judge priests for their sexual orientation, made aboard the papal airplane on the way back from his first foreign trip, to Brazil, resonated through the church. Never veering from church doctrine opposing homosexuality, Francis did strike a more compassionate tone than that of his predecessors, some of whom had largely avoided even saying the more colloquial “gay.” 
If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis told reporters, speaking in Italian but using the English word “gay.”…

Reflections on Pope Francis 
Is he a reformer, a traditionalist, or both? 
WINTER/SPRING 2014 
HARVARD DIVINITY SCHOOL
Catholicism and LGBT Communities 
Pope Francis's statements on gay priests and same-sex marriages have come under intense public scrutiny. In response to the question of why he had not removed Monsignor Battista Ricca, whom he had appointed to a supervisory group at the Vatican Bank, he affirmed his nonjudgmental affirmation of the person and his willingness to keep him in the position— despite allegations that Monsignor Ricca had a homosexual relationship in his past. He has distinguished sharply between homosexuality and sexual abuse of children, which he has labeled as criminal behavior. His response took people by surprise. On the one hand, it represents a very traditional position, distinguishing between a homosexual person and a homosexual act and maintaining that homosexuals, like heterosexuals, could aspire to the priesthood as long as they were celibate. On the other hand, his statement represents a stark change from recent attitudes…


Cardinal Burke’s 
Addictions to Pornography & Masturbation 


Cardinal Burke blames the ‘feminization’ for the problems in the Church as well as, the addiction to pornography and masturbation are ALL completely unsubstantiated claims unsupported by any qualified research - therefore they can only be Burke's  
p r o j e c t i o n s  of his own pervasive guilt and shame of his own obvious feminized behavior, his own addiction to pornography and masturbationWhat fantasy - make believe world is Cardinal Burke describing and why is he in the curia? An addiction to pornography is a symptom that comes from the forced suppression of a gay child’s sexual orientation that is emphatically taught by the Catechism of the Catholic Church on homosexuality, which is completely void of the science on homosexuality. Burke is aways confused about the fact - that gay adult pornography IS NOT child pornography - as he is confused about the scientific facts homosexuality is in NO WAY connected to pedophilia. Gay adult pornography is NOT criminal behavior and it is considered harmless, among researchers, whereas, Burke's sexually repressive behavior is considered severely dangerous to people's lives. Burke is ruthless and reckless with his delusional understanding about homosexuality - destroying people's lives and their reputations by projecting his own questionable sexual fantasies onto innocent men and then without any judicial oversight - judging them for crimes they never committed - they were only committed in Burke's mind. Burke's mental stability is highly questionable - he appears not to be mentally sound to be in the position of any authority. Gay adult pornography would NOT even be an issue - if gay people were never forced to suppress their gay sexual orientation and told that it was evil and instead if gay people were encouraged to form lifelong committed relationships with someone they fell in love with - the same as heterosexual couples are encouraged to do and that is celebrated in the Church. Gay adult pornography is a very poor substitute for not having a lifelong committed relationship. This is the open discussion that was to take at the second session of the Synod on Family 2015 - but through hysterical antics by people such as Cardinal Burke, who vowed to resist  - caused this discussion to be canceled. Shame on Cardinal Burke - who knows nothing about the science on homosexuality!!! Burke is not the kind of Christian example the Church wants to display or support - it mirrors too closely the genocide - 'ethnic cleansing' that Pope Francis was faced with in Myanmar, like all genocides. 

What - is the Catholic Church a make believe world of repressed homosexuals??? These repressed homosexuals who are the majority of the members of the curia and the hierarchy are making the Catholic Church a joke - making a joke of the people who have given their lives in service of Jesus Christ!!! As long as they have not required members of the curia to have a graduate degree on the science of human sexuality - they have no business being in the curia. The absence of an immediate open dialogue on the science on homosexuality held at the Vatican - makes the Church a joke!!! Those who are opposed to this open dialogue - need to resign!!! None of this includes Pope Francis - from the start he has initiated an open dialogue on homosexuality - the fierce resistance on the part of the curia and hierarchy is grievous scandal - it teaches that avoiding truth is commendable. Is it any wonder why the US Congress mirrors the curia and hierarchy. Photo

Vatican debate on gays provokes strong reaction from all corners 
October 10, 2014
VATICAN CITY — From questions of welcoming a gay son home for Christmas to denying the sacraments for the children of gay and lesbian parents, an ongoing debate on the Catholic Church’s approach to homosexuality has raised the hopes of some LGBT advocates and provoked the ire of the church’s right wing.
…But with a rapidly shifting legal landscape, and a pope who famously asked “Who am I to judge?”, the debate over homosexuality is eliciting personal and charged reactions from all corners of the church.
The controversial debate was unwittingly fired up by Australians Ron and Mavis Pirola, the parents of four and delegates to the church family summit.
The Sydney couple told nearly 200 bishops about friends who had invited their gay son and his partner home for Christmas.
“They fully believed in the church’s teachings and they knew their grandchildren would see them welcome the son and his partner into the family,” the couple told those assembled in the Vatican’s Paul VI hall. “Their response could be summed up in three words: ‘He’s our son.’”
American hard-liner Cardinal Raymond Burke shot back on Thursday (Oct. 9) that children should be protected from “exposure” to gay relationships, which he rejected as “evil.”…

The biggest unreported synod influence: human experience  
by Eugene Cullen Kennedy
Oct. 30, 2014
Burke provides a sad example of a churchman who doesn't get or simply overrides the theological wisdom of human experience. By insisting that homosexuality is "intrinsically disordered," he aligns himself with other church leaders who have no clinical or theological basis for making such a judgment. Indeed, he employs a philosophical category that does not fit the human dignity of homosexual men and women.
…We can be thankful to Cardinal Burke for providing us with the contrast needed to see the understanding of human personality that may be the hallmark of Francis' papacy as well as of the synod on the family. The crimson-wrapped Burke is headed for exile on an island, the fate of a faux Napoleon who, thanks to the Peter Principle, has reached the level that matches his ignorance about and fear of homosexuals. He vindicates the sensible judgments tested by human experience while revealing how out of sync he is with the church he claims to defend... Photo

John Jay Report: On Not Blaming Homosexual Priests
May 17, 2011
…[T]he researchers found no statistical evidence that gay priests were more likely than straight priests to abuse minors—a finding that undermines a favorite talking point of many conservative Catholics…
…What’s more, researchers note that the rise in the number of gay priests from the late 1970s onward actually corresponded with “a decreased incidence of abuse—not an increased incidence of abuse.”
First of all, nearly every reputable psychologist and psychiatrist, not to mention almost every scholarly study, decisively rejects the conflation of homosexuality with pedophilia, as well as any cause-and-effect relationship. The studies are almost too numerous to mention. Pedophilia, say experts, is often more a question of a stunted (or arrested) sexuality, more a question of power, and more a question of proximity (among other complicated psychological and social factors). The new John Jay College of Criminal Justice study, called “The Causes and Context of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Catholic Priests in the United States, 1950-2010,” points to, among other reasons: emotionally immature and psychologically maladjusted men entering seminaries; the difficulty of dealing with cultural upheaval in which priests found themselves in the 1960s and 1970s; as well as, again, the issue of proximity--young men and boys were abused because priests were more likely to be working with them, rather than with young women and girls.  But simply put, being a homosexual priest does not make one an abusive priest…
Second, there is a stronger argument against the frequent conflation of homosexuality and pedophilia: the lived experience of emotionally mature and psychologically healthy gay men (and women) who have never, ever abused a child; are not tempted to do so; are not attracted to children at all; and would, in short, never think of doing so.  Being gay does not make one a pedophile…



Bishops Must Be Held Accountable For:
Defamation, Slander and Libel

Former highest-ranking U.S. cardinal blames ‘feminization’ for the Catholic Church’s problems 
January 13, 2015 
..Sadly, Church has not effectively reacted to these destructive cultural forces; instead the Church has become too influenced by radical feminism and has largely ignored the serious needs of men.”
And men had lots of serious issues, Burke said. Like addiction to pornography. And masturbation. “This is lethal for men, especially young men,” he said. “Young men may begin to engage in the sexual sin of masturbation. Men have told me that when they were teenagers, they confessed the sin of masturbation in the confessional and priests would say, ‘Oh, that’s nothing you should be confessing. Everybody does that.’ That’s wrong. These are sinful acts.”...


CARDINAL BURKE

Cardinal Burke: Gays, remarried Catholics, and murderers are all the same

Cardinal Raymond Burke: ‘Feminized’ church and altar girls caused priest shortage 
January 7, 2015 
...In the interview, Burke also blamed gay clergy for the church’s sexual abuse crisis, saying priests “who were feminized and confused about their own sexual identity” were the ones who molested children.
Researchers have disputed that claim, and experts note that the reported rise in the number of gay men entering the priesthood since the 1980s coincided with a sharp drop-off in abuse cases


New Catholic Sex Abuse Findings: Gay Priests Are Not the Problem 
November 18, 2009
The data, which was presented to the U.S. hierarchy on the second day of their annual meeting here, also appears to contradict the widely held view that homosexuals in the priesthood were largely responsible for the abuse.
  "What we are suggesting is that the idea of sexual identity be separated from the problem of sexual abuse," said Margaret Smith, a researcher from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, which is conducting an independent study of sexual abuse in the priesthood from 1950 up to 2002. "At this point, we do not find a connection between homosexual identity and an increased likelihood of sexual abuse."


John Jay College of Criminal Justice - 5-Year Study by American Bishops – Roman Catholic Church Sex Abuse Cases 
May 18, 2011
...Since the scandal broke, conservatives in the church have blamed gay priests for perpetrating the abuse, while liberals have argued that the all-male, celibate culture of the priesthood was the cause. This report will satisfy neither flank.
The report notes that homosexual men began entering the seminaries “in noticeable numbers” from the late 1970s through the 1980s. By the time this cohort entered the priesthood, in the mid-1980s, the reports of sexual abuse of minors by priests began to drop and then to level off. If anything, the report says, the abuse decreased as more gay priests began serving the church...

Facts About Homosexuality and Child Molestation


10 ANTI-GAY MYTHS DEBUNKED - February 27, 2011
Battling the 'homosexual agenda,' the hard-line religious right has made a series of incendiary claims. But they're just NOT true.
Brief excerpts:
Ever since born-again singer and orange juice pitchwoman Anita Bryant helped kick off the contemporary anti-gay movement some 40 years ago, hard-line elements of the religious right have been searching for ways to demonize gay people — or, at a minimum, to find arguments that will prevent their normalization in society. For the former Florida beauty queen and her Save Our Children group, it was the alleged plans of gay men and lesbians to "recruit" in schools that provided the fodder for their crusade. But in addition to hawking that myth, the legions of anti-gay activists who followed have added a panoply of others, ranging from the extremely doubtful claim that sexual orientation is a choice, to unalloyed lies like the claims that gay men molest children far more than heterosexuals or that hate crime laws will lead to the legalization of bestiality and necrophilia. These fairy tales are important to the anti-gay right because they form the basis of its claim that homosexuality is a social evil that must be suppressed — an opinion rejected by virtually all relevant medical and scientific authorities. They also almost certainly contribute to hate crime violence directed at the LGBT community, which is more targeted for such attacks than any other minority group in America. What follows are 10 key myths propagated by the anti-gay movement, along with the truth behind the propaganda…
MYTH # 1
Gay men molest children at far higher rates than heterosexuals.
THE FACTS
According to the American Psychological Association, children are not more likely to be molested by LGBT parents or their LGBT friends or acquaintances. Gregory Herek, a professor at the University of California, Davis, who is one of the nation's leading researchers on prejudice against sexual minorities, reviewed a series of studies and found no evidence that gay men molest children at higher rates than heterosexual men.
Anti-gay activists who make that claim allege that all men who molest male children should be seen as homosexual. But research by A. Nicholas Groth, a pioneer in the field of sexual abuse of children, shows that is not so. Groth found that there are two types of child molesters: fixated and regressive. The fixated child molester — the stereotypical pedophile — cannot be considered homosexual or heterosexual because "he often finds adults of either sex repulsive" and often molests children of both sexes. Regressive child molesters are generally attracted to other adults, but may "regress" to focusing on children when confronted with stressful situations. Groth found, as Herek notes, that the majority of regressed offenders were heterosexual in their adult relationships.
The Child Molestation Research & Prevention Institute notes that 90% of child molesters target children in their network of family and friends, and the majority are men married to women. Most child molesters, therefore, are not gay people lingering outside schools waiting to snatch children from the playground, as much religious-right rhetoric suggests.
Some anti-gay ideologues cite ACPeds’ opposition to same-sex parenting as if the organization were a legitimate professional body. In fact, the so-called college is a tiny breakaway faction of the similarly named, 60,000-member American Academy of Pediatrics that requires, as a condition of membership, that joiners "hold true to the group's core beliefs ... [including] that the traditional family unit, headed by an opposite-sex couple, poses far fewer risk factors in the adoption and raising of children." The group's 2010 publication Facts About Youth was described by the American Academy of Pediatrics as not acknowledging scientific and medical evidence with regard to sexual orientation, sexual identity and health, or effective health education. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, was one of several legitimate researchers who said ACPeds misrepresented the institutes’ findings. “It is disturbing to me to see special interest groups distort my scientific observations to make a point against homosexuality,” he wrote. “The information they present is misleading and incorrect.” Another critic of ACPeds is Dr. Gary Remafedi, a researcher at the University of Minnesota who wrote a letter to ACPeds rebuking the organization for misusing his research.
In spite of all this, the anti-LGBT right continues to peddle this harmful and baseless myth, which is probably the leading defamatory charge leveled against gay people…


Loyalty to the Ignorance of a Bishop??? 

Is not Loyalty - It is collusion with EVIL!!!

From everyone to whom much has been given, 
much will be required; and 
from the one to whom much has been entrusted, 
even more will be demanded.
Jesus the Cause of Division
“I came to bring fire to the earth, and 
how I wish it were already kindled! 
I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and 
what stress I am under until it is completed! 
Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? 
No, I tell you, but rather division! 
From now on five in one household will be divided,
 three against two and 
two against three; 
they will be divided:
father against son
    and son against father,
mother against daughter
    and daughter against mother,
mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
    and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”
Luke 12:48-53





Science  + 
+ Religion = Truth = L O V E

Caritas in veritate
Pope Benedict XVI 2009




Letter to Father George V. Coyne, Director of the Vatican Observatory (June 1, 1988) 
 John Paul II 
…By encouraging openness between the Church and the scientific communities, we are not envisioning a disciplinary unity between theology and science like that which exists within a given scientific field or within theology proper. As dialogue and common searching continue, there will be grow towards mutual understanding and a gradual uncovering of common concerns which will provide the basis for further research and discussion. Exactly what form that will take must be left to the future. What is important, as we have already stressed, is that the dialogue should continue and grow in depth and scope. In the process we must overcome every regressive tendency to a unilateral reductionism, to fear, and to self-imposed isolation. What is critically important is that each discipline should continue to enrich, nourish and challenge the other to be more fully what it can be and to contribute to our vision of who we are and who we are becoming… 
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 https://w2.vatican.va/content/john-paul-ii/en/letters/1988/documents/hf_jp-ii_let_19880601_padre-coyne.html



CARITAS IN VERITATE
BENEDICT XVI - 2009
 3. …Only in truth does charity shine forth, only itruth can charity be authentically livedTruth 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.
  4. Because it is filled with truth, charity can be understood in the abundance of its values, it can be shared and communicated. Truth, in fact, is lógos which creates diá-logos, and hence communication and communion. Truth, by enabling men and women to let go of their subjective opinions and impressions, allows them to move beyond cultural and historical limitations and to come together in the assessment of the value and substance of things. Truth opens and unites our minds in the lógos of love: this is the Christian proclamation and testimony of charity…
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…    http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/encyclicals/documents/hf_ben-xvi_enc_20090629_caritas-in-veritate.html




Christians are called to work concretely in the realities of this world, illuminating them with the light that comes from God.

Massacre Gay Nightclub, Orlando, Florida, June 12, 2016 




Atrocities Caused By 
Absence of Science on Homosexuality
Of 
Cardinal Burke's Breach -  Antigay - Delusional Idiosyncratic Beliefs - 
Contradicted by Reality and Rational Argument

If a jet airline pilot in flight approaching New York City is emphatically ignoring the laws of physics - he would need to be removed immediately from the cockpit - regardless how many intoxicated (addiction) passengers are screaming in wild hysteria - “let him fly the jet airliner.” For the sake of all the lives aboard the airliner, including the intoxicated passengers and the lives that might possibly be killed crashing into New York City - this airline pilot must be immediately removed. Once, removed and stripped of his pilot’s license - we can empathically address his refusal to accept the basic laws of physics. The Vatican is responsible for all of humanity. Someone like Cardinal Burke is the same as the jet airline pilot who disagrees with the laws of physics - must be removed immediately for the sake of the lives of all of humanity. Once, removed and laicized Cardinal Burke's delusional understanding of science or ignoring science can be empathically addressed and why he feels "We Have Arrived at The End Times." But as with the jet airline pilot, who would be permanently barred from ever flying a jet airliner again - it would be the same for Mr. Raymond Burke never to speak again for the Church as an ordained priest - the whole world is immensely larger than New York City! The Vatican cannot be allowed to be delusional (characterized by or holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument)  and play recklessly and ruthlessly with the lives of all humanity.





Why Gay Priests Stay In The Closet?
People have mistakenly conflated
 homosexuality and pedophilia
and so
Priests don't want to come out because 
they fear they'll be 

labeled a pedophile.


Can this priest persuade church leaders to welcome gay Catholics?
July 6, 2017 
Brief excerpts:
(CNN) On a recent Sunday, a Catholic cardinal in New Jersey welcomed gay and lesbian Catholics to a special Mass at his cathedral in Newark. "I am your brother," Cardinal Joseph Tobin told the congregation, "as a disciple of Jesus."
Weeks later, a Catholic bishop in Illinois instructed priests not to offer Holy Communion or funeral rites to anyone engaged in a same-sex union, unless they had "given some signs of repentance" before their death. Bishop Thomas Paprocki said he has a duty to warn wayward Catholics, with charity, but also "without compromising the truth.”…
…Into that breach steps the Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit priest and popular author with a large following on social media. In a new book, called "Building a Bridge," Martin urges LGBT Catholics and their bishops to begin conversations rooted in mutual respect, compassion and sensitivity.
Those conversations can be difficult in a church that calls homosexual acts "intrinsically disordered," and, in some dioceses, fires employees who have same-sex partners or advocate for LGBT rights. One conservative website called Martin "a wolf in sheep's clothing (or a Roman collar)."
But Martin's book has won endorsements from high places. Two cardinals and a bishop contributed favorable blurbs, including the head of the Vatican's office of Laity, Family and Life, who called it "welcome and much-needed." Martin himself was recently named a consultor to the Vatican's communications team.
Martin spoke to CNN recently about homophobia, why gay priests stay in the closet and his message to LGBT Catholics who consider leaving the church. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

What prompted you to write this book?
After the massacre at the gay nightclub in Orlando last year, only a few Catholic bishops expressed their sympathy or reached out to the LGBT community, and even fewer used the words "LGBT" or "gay" in their statements. That was revelatory to me. Even in death, LGBT people are largely invisible in the church…

One bishop, Robert Lynch in Florida, said that religion is partly to blame for attacks on LGBT people.
He is absolutely right. That doesn't mean that church teaching caused the shooting, but the ways in which religious leaders speak about the LGBT community influences the way the culture at large talks about them. Oftentimes it can give people cover for simply being homophobic, and they can use church teaching as a mask for their homophobia

You call the firings of gay Catholics by church officials unjust. But aren't they causing "scandal," as the church defines it, by flouting Catholic teaching?
You could make the "scandal" case about a whole raft of people: people who are divorced; people who are divorced and remarried without an annulment; women who have given birth to, or men who have fathered, a child out of wedlock; an unmarried couple who are living together. All these things are very public and we chose not to thunder over them. That, to me, is classic discrimination. Either you require everyone to adhere to church teaching -- on everything, not just sexual morality -- or not. But you don't put one person's life under a moral microscope simply because they are LGBT.

Is there any theological justification for denying burial rights to a person in a gay marriage?
Any person prepares himself or herself to enter into the sacraments. So before we go to Mass, for example, we are hopefully in a "state of grace" and have gone to Confession. But to single a group out and target them with statements like this is discriminatory. No other group have their lives put under a microscope like this. None. It's like giving a homily at Mass and, rather than talking to all of us, singling out one person in the pew. And this is a group that has already felt marginalized enough. The place where they should feel most at home is often the place where they feel most excluded. And that is not the way that Jesus operated. When Jesus met people who were seen as on the outskirts of society, he welcomed them. The welcome comes first, and we're not doing that if we call people sinners before we even shake their hands…

A number of surveys show that many, if not most Catholics support gay rights, especially young Catholics. Do you get the sense that this is a generational thing, and that in 20 or 30 years the church hierarchy won't be talking about or treating LGBT people in the same way?
…There are two reasons for this shift. One is Pope Francis. His saying "Who am I to judge?" about gay people; his public meeting with Yayo Grassi, his former student who is gay, during his papal visit to the United States; his comments in Amoris Laetitia... And the bishops who Pope Francis is appointing in the United States are much more LGBT friendly.
The second thing is the increased number of LGBT Catholics who are coming out and making LGBT issues much more important for the church as a whole. At St. Cecilia's Church in Boston recently we had 700 people at a talk, and I stayed afterward signing books for two hours. LGBT people are so hungry for a place in what is, after all, their own church, and they are grateful that someone in a collar would bring this up.

You write that there are hundreds, if not thousands of gay and lesbian Catholic clergy. Why aren't they "out"?
Several reasons. One, their bishops or religious superiors ask them not to come out. Two, they fear reprisals from parishioners. Three, they fear it would be divisive. Four, they are private people. Five, they are not fully aware of their sexuality. And lastly, people have mistakenly conflated homosexuality and pedophilia, and so priests don't want to come out because they fear they'll be labeled a pedophile

"I Don't Want to Grow Up!"
The curia and hierarchy, their collective immature behavior brings to mind the fairy tale of Peter Pan. Peter Pan is a children’s story about - “A free spirited and mischievous young boy who can fly and never grows up, Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood having adventures on the mythical island of Neverland as the leader of the Lost Boys, interacting with fairies…(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Pan).”  Nevertheless, the destructiveness of their collective immaturity fostered by this diabolical antigay fantasy has been global, this is in terms of structural violence, the invisible form of violence that ultimately turns into direct violence. It has brought us to the brink of nuclear war. This far surpasses the atrocities of Hitler’s and the Nazi regime. In fact, it is the continuation of these atrocities that took place in Nazi Germany between 1933-1945 that have been embedded in the very young children who grew up during these years and who were traumatized by experiencing the impact of these inhuman atrocities. In observing the dominant behavior of the members of the curia and the hierarchy within the Vatican - these inhuman atrocities are being repeated in the form of unconscious re-enactments that centered specifically on Hitler’s and the Nazi regime's exploitation of  the ignorance and fears of the societal antigay prejudices of Nazi Germany. 


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.


The curia and hierarchy - their immaturity, especially in their ruthless obsession to suppress any open dialogue between science and religion on homosexuality has for the past several decades, as noted by scholars and theologians, impeded the free theological search for truth. They have succeeded in making the world a global closet for repressed homosexuals and for recruiting repressed homosexuals into the priesthood. They have sustained Nazi Germany's fear and ignorance of homosexuals thus supporting societal antigay prejudices to be exploited effectively as a political weapon. Hitler exploited the antigay prejudices (1) to become dictator 1933, (2) to purge the leadership of the Nazi StormTroopers (brownshirts) and hundreds of other Nazis political enemies in the “Night of the Long Knives” June 30,1934 and (3) to launch the birthing of Nazism by silencing and removing the anti-nazi outspoken Catholic clergy to concentration camps 1935-1937.  The same antigay prejudices have been exploited that has led to the selfish greed of globalization that values profits over people in the USA 1981-2013. Pope Francis, July 29, 2013, nearly completely disarmed the exploitation of this antigay political weapon - in just five short words "Who am I to judge?" Though, these words of Pope Francis stunned and alarmed the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy, leaving them speechless, these words only served to heightened their collective immaturity thus bolstering their solidarity in their belief in their unsubstantiated antigay prejudices as God's will, excluding the science on homosexuality. According, to both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI - God would not negate the science of the world that God created. Without the continuous dialogue between the science of God's creation and God's spoken word - there is no truth and without truth there is no love. This is the atrocity of Nazism that had been embedded in the very young children who were traumatized by experiencing the impact of Hitler and the Nazi regime inhuman treatment of homosexuals 1933-1945 that these children as adults through their unconscious re-enactments of the same Nazis inhuman treatment of homosexuals has been seamlessly woven into the catechism words on homosexuality. 

Exposure to traumatic events in childhood can have dire and long-lasting consequences, not only for traumatized children but for society as well. Green (1985) has suggested that “failure to master the trauma of childhood creates a continual need to repeat and reenact them during adult life”…There is evidence that childhood trauma is linked to later drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, and criminal behavior…Abused children may be more inclined than nonabused children to grow up to be abusing parents…Childhood trauma also appears to be implicated in debilitating adult anxiety disorders,…dissociative experiences, borderline personality disorder,…multiple personality disorder (now known as dissociative identity disorder), and adult psychiatric disturbance in general…
Unfortunately, the predominant view as late as 15 years ago was that children are generally little affected by the worst of experiences, and then not for very long…This view prevailed despite evidence from other observers—and sometimes even from supporters of the dominant view—that children respond to severe stress with behaviors that would today be recognized as symptomatic of posttraumatic stress…

And the fact that - no one in the curia or hierarchy cares about remedying this blaring rendition of the atrocities committed by Hitler and the Nazi regime or that it has not come into their conscious awareness - is another major red flag - indicating that they are repressed homosexuals.  They are totally absorbed in their obsessive antigay crusade that they are oblivious to the pastoral needs of people around the world. 


How did it happen that the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy are repressed homosexuals? 
Who picked them? 
And why?
And why are they still there???


The Vatican Is No Place for Immaturity
or

Ignorance of Science On Homosexuality 

It is the center of the life and death of all of humanity to be protected and guided as Christ has taught us all. Pope Francis has never stopped his work in this regard. He has managed to touch the lives of nearly all those that the world considered to be the least among us. HIs past trip to Myanmar, risking his very life to reach out to the Rohingya Muslims managing to conceive the vast complexity of this intricate politically intense situation hanging between the life and death of people’s lives. However, as the Pope - he was like a skilled surgeon. He was able to enter in - contaminate no one with any personal biases, first, to do no harm, he touched the lives of these most desperate people who are need of our help and made a clear statement in their defense was breathtaking. Pope Francis stated that 'The presence of God today is also called Rohingya.' WOW!!! Thank God that he made such a powerful statement!

Now, that is what it means to a Christian. No! It is not easy!!! It demands everything that is within us - our whole heart, soul and mind to be attentive endlessly in preparation and in execution. It is excruciating frightening beyond belief, our focus needs to be centered directly on Christ and the job that needs to be done. There is no confusion here! Now that is what gives all life meaning - to be part of something greater than ourselves that we are totally involved in. That is the stuff that attracts and ignites followers and also that deters others. That is what it means to be Catholic!!! Pope Francis’s trip to Myanmar and Bangladesh, meeting with the Rohingya Muslims is the reverse experience of being traumatized by doing qualitative research on the holocaust (Posted below:

Pope explains why he didn't use the word 'Rohingyas' in Myanmar 
December 2, 2017
Meeting the Rohingyas
The Pope said he was initially annoyed that the Rohingyas were not treated properly by some of the event organizers who put them in a single-file line and rushed them through their meeting with the Pope.
"I even yelled a bit," Francis said. "Respect! Respect!"
Listening to their stories one by one, the Pope said he felt moved to make some spontaneous remarks.
"I don't know what I said but I know at a certain point I asked for forgiveness," the Pope said.
"I was crying," the Pope said. "I tried to hide it; they were crying, too.”

Pope Defends His Myanmar Diplomacy: ‘I Did Not Negotiate With the Truth’
December 2, 2017 
…After days of critical coverage about his not uttering the word “Rohingya” while in Myanmar, the politically savvy pope seemed eager to discuss what he considered the success of a trip that even his supporters had warned was a stumble into a political minefield.
“I am very, very satisfied with the meetings,” he said.
In his nearly hourlong remarks, the pope sought to explain his approach to effective diplomacy (“one half step back, one step forward”) and strategic communications (“the most important thing is that the message gets across”) and even offered his geopolitical analysis, explaining that someone had told him that the area of Myanmar where the Rohingya lived was “rich in precious stones” and that outside interests perhaps wanted it emptied for mining. “But I don’t know if it’s true,” he said.
He called the meeting with the Rohingya in Dhaka, Bangladesh, a “condition of the trip,” and opened up about the emotions he experienced visiting with 16 survivors of the persecution, to whom he vowed: “We won’t close our hearts or look away. The presence of God today is also called Rohingya.”
Aboard the plane, the pope flashed a defensive streak about his avoidance of using the politically contentious word during his days in Myanmar.
“If I had said that word in the official speeches, it would have been a door slammed in the face,” he said, using a metaphor he turned to several times, and which he said evoked for him the image of how an angry teenager vents frustration.
“It’s true I didn’t have the pleasure of slamming the door in their face publicly with a denunciation,” the pope said. “But I had the satisfaction of dialogue, and letting the other side dialogue, and in this way the message arrived.”
He argued that his caution granted him access to private meetings, where he could be more frank…

Pope Francis continually provides a mature contrast to the immaturity of Cardinal Burke and the rest, including their ardent lay supporters of what  an adult Christian is all about. He follows St. Paul’s words,

When I was a child, I talked like a child, 
I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. 
When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
1 Corinthians 13:11

Primitive Defense Mechanism

Pope Francis is, indeed, not confusing. He is not given to the primitive defense mechanism known as splitting that is so prevalent among Burke and the members of the curia and hierarchy - demanding answers of complex situation that is either black or white, such as Burke’s frantic need for clarity regarding the dubia, including those who support him. Burke’s insistent need to have answers given in black and white terminology - exposes his immaturity.













"Situations are not black or white; life is more complicated!” “Splitting is a term that came out of classical (psychoanalytical or psychodynamic) schools of thought and refers to an unconscious ego defense mechanism by which a fairly complex entity cannot be accepted into consciousness in its entirety because it contains aspects that are both acceptable to a person as well as unacceptable (https://counsellingresource.com/features/2008/10/28/splitting-as-psychological-term/).” “Splitting (also called black-and-white thinking or all-or-nothing thinking) is the failure in a person's thinking to bring together the dichotomy of both positive and negative qualities of the self and others into a cohesive, realistic whole (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splitting_(psychology)).” There is evidence that there are cases that suggest that splitting is a consequence of severe abuse in childhood. More detail references on splitting are found below. 

Primitive Defense Mechanisms
In some areas of psychology (especially in psychodynamic theory), psychologists talk about “defense mechanisms,” or manners in which we behave or think in certain ways to better protect or “defend” ourselves. Defense mechanisms are one way of looking at how people distance themselves from a full awareness of unpleasant thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
Psychologists have categorized defense mechanisms based upon how primitive they are. The more primitive a defense mechanism, the less effective it works for a person over the long-term. However, more primitive defense mechanisms are usually very effective short-term, and hence are favored by many people and children especially (when such primitive defense mechanisms are first learned). Adults who don’t learn better ways of coping with stress or traumatic events in their lives will often resort to such primitive defense mechanisms as well.
Most defense mechanisms are fairly unconscious – that means most of us don’t realize we’re using them in the moment. Some types of psychotherapy can help a person become aware of what defense mechanisms they are using, how effective they are, and how to use less primitive and more effective mechanisms in the future…

Splitting
…In this context, splitting refers to a primitive mechanism of defense characterized by a polarization of good feelings and bad feelings, of love and hate, of attachment and rejection. Splitting, archetypally imbedded in a patient's psychic structure, acts as a powerful unconscious force to protect against the ego's perception of dangerous anxiety and intense affects. Rather than providing real protection, splitting leads to destructive behavior and turmoil in patients' lives, and the often confused reactions manifested by those who try to help.
Some degree of splitting is an expectable part of early psychic development. We see it in young children who, early on, press us to tell them "Is it good?" or "Is it bad?" We hear their frustration when we answer, "Situations are not black or white; life is more complicated!" "Yes, I know all that," they say, "now tell me, is it good or is it bad?"
Subsequent developmental advances foster the ego's ability to accept paradoxical affects, and to synthesize and integrate good and bad, love and hate along with the associated affects. The need for a definite "yes" or "no" decreases, and multiple possibilities and variations on a theme become tolerable…

Splitting
…Splitting is a term that came out of classical (psychoanalytical or psychodynamic) schools of thought and refers to an unconscious ego defense mechanism by which a fairly complex entity cannot be accepted into consciousness in its entirety because it contains aspects that are both acceptable to a person as well as unacceptable. Relatively underdeveloped personalities, most especially borderline personalities, have a hard time incorporating into consciousness seemingly contradictory aspects of the same person or thing. So, they unconsciously separate or “split” objects into two categories, seeing the “good” side of a person or thing as the part they find acceptable and the “bad” side of the person or thing as the part they find painful or unacceptable. And, it’s much more than just seeing both a good and a bad side to everything. They actually “split” a single entity into two opposing realities, conceptualizing for example a mother who has both a gentle and a terrifying side as alternately “good mommy,” or “bad mommy.” As a result, they will often alternate between over-idealizing and devaluing the same person. Underdeveloped and poorly integrated personalities not only separate difficult to integrate external “objects” or persons this way, but they also “split” into disparate parts aspects of themselves that are hard to integrate into a cohesive whole. So, extreme degrees of internal splitting can result in a fragmentation of the self through such mechanisms as dissociation or even multiple personality formation…

Splitting as a consequence of severe abuse in childhood.
Burland JA, 1994
Clinical data suggest that Kernberg's description of splitting as a defense mechanism is useful in conceptualizing the psychological consequences of abuse in childhood in certain patients. The splitting in these patients is similar to his description of splitting in borderline patients in that it compartmentalizes and sequesters certain overwhelming and painful ego states accompanying negative introjects of the betraying primary object and the betrayed self. These sequestered introjects, furthermore, act as automatons, generating behaviors that arbitrarily re-enact their content even though the patient remains consciously unaware of their historical meaning. Another consequence of the sequestration of these traumatic introjects is that their affects retain their initial power and primitive quality, unmodulated by the usual homogenizing process that is a part of the synthesis of part-object introjects into whole-object introjects; the sequestration, therefore, often painful in itself, must nevertheless be rigidly maintained lest traumatic anxiety in the face of overwhelming affects be re-experienced

It's not Pope Francis causing confusion
What Cardinal Daniel DiNardo didn't say points to the wider leadership problem in the U.S. church
Nov 13, 2017
Pope Francis greets Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, during a private meeting Oct. 9 at the Vatican. (CNS/L'Osservatore Romano) 
It was an odd statement that Cardinal Daniel DiNardo released following Capuchin Fr. Thomas Weinandy's resignation as a consultant to the U.S. bishops' Committee on Doctrine after Weinandy made public a letter criticizing Pope Francis for creating "chronic confusion" among faithful Catholics. 
One would have expected from a cardinal and the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops a clear rebuke of Weinandy and a robust defense of Francis. That is not what we got
Almost the whole statement was a reflection,
in DiNardo's words, "on the nature of dialogue within the Church." He wrote: "We all must acknowledge that legitimate differences exist, and that it is the work of the Church, the entire body of Christ, to work towards an ever-growing understanding of God's truth." DiNardo is clearly defending Weinandy's felt need to correct the pope. 
We cannot but ask where DiNardo's plea for dialogue and understanding was when Weinandy, as head of the U.S. bishops' Secretariat of Doctrine and Canonical Affairs, was building cases against theologians like St. Joseph Sr. Elizabeth Johnson and Fr. Peter Phan and against the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Where was the "Christian charity" then? To paraphrase the quote DiNardo used from St. Ignatius of Loyola, where was the presumption of the Christian neighbor's good intent? 
…If any Catholics are feeling confused, it is not because of Francis; it is because of Burke and Weinandy and their ilk. They sow the confusion they condemn. They claim they want dialogue, but they don't. They want to be in charge and they are not. 
…What DiNardo didn't say points to the wider leadership problem in the U.S. church. We are at a time of massive social upheaval on many levels. 
…On these underlying questions, we look to our bishops not for answers, but for guidance, and we find them lacking. We look to them for accompaniment on this journey and we find them absent. 
Francis, on the other hand, talks about how the greatest tragedy of today is a "spiritual sclerosis" and "sclerosis of the heart." He understands the general anxiety of our times and can, as a pastor, talk about it. He offers to walk with us. Catholics — and many non-Catholics — are not confused by this, they are captivated by it. That is what DiNardo didn't say but should have.

My house will be called 
a house of prayer, but you are making it an
opium den” - “crack house


So, it is said that many people feel confused, but it is also said that Pope Francis is not the one causing the confusion. This is a complex situation that appears to have two main components. First, those who are  claiming that Pope Francis is causing confusion, including Fr. Thomas Weinandy, former doctrinal chief of the U.S. Catholic bishops’ conference and Cardinal Raymond Burke are demanding that Pope Francis maintain a strict “black and white” adherence to all man made laws of the Church, separate from the Gospel of Jesus Christ and without any dialogue. Second, who stands to win the most by discrediting Pope Francis by fueling these unsubstantiated claims that he is causing confusion? 

Those in the first group are attempting to control their worlds by the primitive defense of splitting keeping their worlds divided into neat categories of black and white with no ambiguities. According, to the above research - they want to protect themselves from the overwhelming anxiety of re-experiencing painful even traumatic emotional memories of early childhood. However, this behavior of splitting is mostly unconscious behavior and - it does nothing to protect the individual “Rather than providing real protection, splitting leads to destructive behavior and turmoil…”

If you continue in my word, you are truly 
my disciples; and 
you will know the truth, and the 
truth will make you free.

Very truly, I tell you, 
everyone who commits sin is 
a slave to sin. 
The slave does not have a permanent 
place in the household; 
the son has a place there forever. 
So if the Son makes you free, 
you will be free indeed.
I know that you are descendants of Abraham; 
yet you look for an opportunity 
to kill me, 
because there is no place 
in you for my word.
John 8:31-32, 34-37


It is “truth” that sets us free - not falsifying the truth, which only leads to addictive behavior, a slave to what is untrue.  For far too long, not willfully, though nonetheless prelates like Cardinal Burke, have twisted the rules, laws and doctrines of the Church around to be applied in the narrow confines of “black and white” perspective to the exclusions of human sciences. This type of deliberate manipulation of Church laws is dishonest and certainly has nothing to do with truth - as noted in the Hunthausen affair 1980s described as the “Perspective Shift…tries to frame the discussion of Hunthausen’s leadership within one particular set of strictly intraecclesial perspectives (the perspectives of the “human sciences” are excluded)… (reference found below)." This type of "splitting" is addictive behavior - from documentation this type of addictive behavior has over the decades - attracted similar personalities like Burke and other borderline like personalities - as described in the above research - who have become dominant in the Church. They are not about truth. They have created the Church into something like an “opium den” or “crack house” filled with addicts who want to suppress the truth. They are running away from the truth about themselves - individually. We have witnessed the immediate outrage and hostility - whenever the drug of choice of addicts is removed. 

Burke and the like - they viciously begin attacking Pope Francis claiming that he is causing great confusion, which is not the case. The confusion that these splitting addicts, Burke and the like, are experiencing is the effects of drug withdraw, the symptoms known as the DTs or delirium tremens (define as - a psychotic condition typical of withdrawal in chronic alcoholics, involving tremors, hallucinations, anxiety, and disorientation). As Pope Francis is gently applying the sobering healing ointment of truth - he is untwisting the narrow confines of their "black and white" perspective of life that obscures and suppresses the reality of truth that anesthetizes ( to induce a loss of consciousness.) them from feeling overwhelmed by the anxiety of past early childhood traumatic situations, this intervention of truth - in effect - is the removing of what has become for them their drug of choiceand they begin suffering onset of the DTs. They unconsciously are projection the overwhelming confusion that they are personally experiencing onto Pope Francis. But Pope Francis is only like a substance abuse counselor at a drug addiction - Detox & Rehab treatment center (detoxification - medical treatment of an alcoholic or drug addict involving abstention from drink or drugs until the bloodstream is free of toxins). Pope Francis is not causing the confusion - he is helping to end the confusion, turmoil and the destructive behavior that is caused by the overuse of the intoxicating and anesthetizing effects of the primitive defense of splitting.

The absence of the rationale to support their positions and their unwillingness to enter into dialogue on the topic - are keys signs of addictive behavior. Rationally thinking helps to prevents us from becoming slaves for the continuous and addictive need for the use of splitting behavior to suppress overwhelming - even traumatic emotional memories of our early childhood years. For Cardinal Burke and the majority of the members of the curia and the hierarchy - it is the complete absence of the rationale of the science on homosexuality and their fierce refusal in maintaining a rational dialogue between the science and religion aspects on homosexuality - that drives their need for the addictive use of the primitive defense mechanism known as splitting that anesthetizes them from consciously remembering any overwhelming painful emotional past memories, growing up gay.


Brain, Mind, and Body in The Healing of Trauma - 
Bessel van der Kolk MD 
…when people relive their trauma, their survival brain, their emotional brain, becomes very activated, and their frontal lobes, their more rational brain, gets deactivated, so that people sort of “take leave of their senses” in some ways—so that people’s cognitions fail them. We learned that the insula, the part of the brain that’s involved in registering and noting what is going on in your body, becomes impaired, so there’s a decreased body–mind connection that needs to be reactivated. Various people have discovered that the medial prefrontal cortex—the part of the brain that allows you to feel yourself, notice yourself and be in touch with yourself—gets quite thrown off track, basically, so that it is really hard to notice what goes on inside of you and to manage what goes on inside of you…

1 Peter 5:8

The Church cannot be made into an “opium den” or “crack house,” it must be a place where truth is allow to prevail. It is the truth of Christ that gives us life and it is not confined to “black and white” thinking - it is a rainbow of colors, including gray - inclusive of everyone.

Archbishop Asks Rome To Ease Up 
September 28, 1986
MILWAUKEE — Rembert George Weakland long has been regarded by his peers as the brightest member of the hierarchy in the American Roman Catholic Church...has politely but forthrightly told the Vatican to, in effect, soften its drive to coerce doctrinal uniformity by punishing dissenters.
He asserted that Draconian measures used throughout Christian history to silence those who challenge traditional church teaching have resulted in “much cruelty, suppression of theological creativity and lack of growth…”
Bishop Thomas J. Gumbleton of Detroit predicted that the “cruel (and) demeaning” treatment of Archbishop Hunthausen would effectively “intimidate” his fellow prelates…  
…in his columns, titled “The Price of Orthodoxy,” Archbishop Weakland appeared to be directing his remarks to Vatican inquisitors. 
He contended that previous efforts to monitor and safeguard Catholic doctrine have been undertaken in an atmosphere where “amateurs-turned-theologians easily became headhunters and leaders were picked (on the basis of) the rigidity of their doctrine, so that often second-rate and repressive minds, riding on the waves of fear, took over.
“Religion under such circumstances then can become an ideology that tolerates no obstacle and that values ideas more than people…”

Gamesmanship seeks to “ruffle the feathers” of the opposing party, thereby lowering the opponent’s resistance to yielding. The authors offer the example of taking time when the opponent is in a hurry, and observe that the key to the success of gamesmanship is not raising the suspicion of one’s own deviousness...(p 113).


Gamesmanship involves fostering a state of upset or unrest in the other party as a means of reducing their resistance to yielding. Surprise is an important element in the strategy – surprise which results in the other party becoming flustered or feeling off balance oruncertain how to proceed (p 329).
If one simply looks at the effects of the Vatican’s conflict handling, and how this was perceived on the Seattle side, it is easy to find reason to believe that the center party employed gamesmanship as a means of obtaining its own objectives within the conflict. The Vatican’s approach over time was indeed constantly changing – the Vatican representatives changed (Ratzinger, Laghi, Hickey, Gantin, the assessment commission), as did the legal means (visitation, power of appointment, assessment) and proposals for the kind of episcopal appointment (coadjutor, two auxiliaries, one auxiliary with faculties, coadjutor with no faculties) – and  secrecy and delay compounded the uncertainty on the periphery party side. Hunthausen rarely seemed to know what to expect or when to expect it...But I have no difficulty imagining as well, given the perspectives and findings of this study, that more intentional forms of gamesmanship were applied for advantage...(p 330). http://igitur-archive.library.uu.nl/dissertations/2003-0206-111237/full.pdf

Are conservatives at high-stakes Vatican summit overplaying their hand?
October 16, 2015
VATICAN CITY — Ever since a Vatican summit last year raised the possibility of making the church more open to those whose family lives may not mirror the Catholic ideal, conservative foes have been in uproar, waging an intense campaign to block any reforms from being adopted.
Yet as a follow-up meeting this month has progressed, the enthusiasm of the traditionalists could be overwhelming their tactical judgment — annoying and even angering enough of their fellow bishops they may have weakened what was once considered a strong position.
Still, the conservatives may also have created enough disarray and disagreement to ice any significant moves toward change, or taint any proposals they may offer to Pope Francis when the meeting, called a synod, concludes on Oct. 25 after three intense weeks.
The most public, and, for the conservatives, embarrassing episode came earlier this week with the leak of a private letter to the pope from 13 cardinals opposed to reforms.
In the letter, the senior churchmen complained that Francis had set up this meeting of 270 bishops from around the world in a way that would favor reformers who want, for example, to adopt a new approach to gays and lesbians or find a way that divorced and remarried Catholics could receive Communion.
Several cardinals quickly denied signing the letter, and others said the letter they signed was a bit different from the leaked version, though they did not say how…
Moreover, one of those newly revealed to have signed was Houston Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, a top official of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
DiNardo’s participation in the secret campaign was seen as a knock at Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl. That’s because Wuerl is a member of the committee named by Francis to draft the synod’s final report — a group whose composition had irked the conservatives…
With all these twists and turns the saga was quickly becoming as absurd as it was convoluted, and it might have been seen as just another chapter in the legacy of Vatican intrigue that stretches from the era of the Borgia popes to the novels of Dan Brown — except that the plot seemed so backhanded it made the synod look faithless as well as foolish.
“The general opinion I detected among the bishops was a sense of disgust,” Bishop Marcello Semeraro, an Italian who is on the final drafting committee along with Wuerl, told Vatican Insider.
Another synod delegate, Archbishop Mark Coleridge of Australia, called the leaked letter affair a “typically Roman melodrama” that was “not untinged with psychodrama.”
The problem, Coleridge wrote on his blog, is that episodes like this tend to “aggravate the sense that the Synod is not much more than a politicacaucus, with ideological riptides swirling around us and the odd stinger drifting by.”
Already, he said, the deliberations are struggling to battle against “a fear that can become a kind of paranoia.”
“My reading of all this is that the ploy has backfired,” wrote veteran Vaticanista John Thavis. “I suspect most synod participants are not amused at this rather obvious attempt to pre-emptively discredit the synod’s outcome.”
The synod participant who counts most, of course, is Pope Francis, and he, too, was apparently not happy…

The one who appears to have suffered the most is Benedict XVI - growing up in Nazi Germany. Through, clinical and historical research of the life history of Benedict XVI, it appears he may have been suffering in his adult life from being in a traumatic state of mind, that is experiencing flashbacks to his early childhood years growing up in a social environment dominated with the violence of Hitler and the Nazi regime of their extremely irrational radicalization of racist nationalism the central core of Nazism. It has been described by Ian Kershaw (the world’s foremost authority on Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime) as fanatically saturated with national salvation tied to the pseudoscience of “racial cleansing” “the excision of its ‘life-threatening diseases’” inspirited by Hitler and “institutionalized in all aspects of organized life in the nazi state” was intrinsically self-destructive. Ian Kershaw - Hitler and the Uniqueness of Nazism:


…Not only the street-fighters and beer-hall brawlers in the nazi movement were attracted by the idea of violently-attained national salvation. As much recent research has shown, a new generation of intelligent, middle-class students at German universities in the early 1920s soaked up völkisch ideas, those of extreme racist nationalism, intrinsic to the ideas of national regeneration. In this way, ‘national salvation’ found intellectualized form among groups which would constitute a coming élite, groups whose doctorates in law combined with a rationalized ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’ (or ‘new objectivity’) type of approach to the ‘cleansing’ of the nation: the excision of its ‘life-threatening diseases’. Such mentalities were carried with them, 10 or 15 years after studying, into the upper echelons of the SS and Security Police, as well as into state and party planning offices and ‘think tanks’. By the early 1940s, some of these ‘intellectuals’ had their hands covered in blood as they led the Einsatzgruppen into the Soviet Union, while others were laying down plans for the racial ‘cleansing’ of the occupied territories of the east and the new ethnic order to be established there.
That ‘national salvation’ involved not just internal regeneration, but a ‘new order’ based on the ethnic cleansing of the entire continent of Europe, also singles out National Socialism from all other forms of fascism…

Benedict XVI for the first, 18 years of the life - he grew up in rise and fall of Hitler and the Nazi regime. People hardly ever consider the lifelong harmful effects that a child sustains living through the wages of war. Had Benedict XVI never been assigned to the second most powerful position in the Catholic Church, as head of the CDF, we would never have known up close the variety of hardships, many that are unidentified that children suffer from being exposed the explicit and implicit aspects of the violence of war. This is especially true for children growing up in Nazi Germany 1933-1945 and in the devastation of aftermath the followed. There are of course studies that have been done on the harmful effects that war has on children. However, Benedict is an extraordinary human being in many ways. He was been international noted as a brilliant scholar, theologian by academic professionals in those fields of study, and from among people various backgrounds have found him to be dynamically inspirational in their daily lives. 

I myself have been quite judgmental of Benedict, because of what I have perceived as his obsessive mistreatment of gay people, especially his exclusion of the science on homosexuality and lifelong harmful effects that this negligence has on gay children growing up, as well as, the hardship it causes particularly to the parents of gay children. 

Professionally, both as a priest and a psychologist, I have worked with and listened to the stories of gay young adults from a variety of backgrounds, from around the US, including the intercity of Detroit. I have also given, as well as, attended lectures at universities related to LGBT issues. I have also been a participant at supportive LGBT organizations both on the campuses of universities and locally, as well as, including at the LGBT Catholic organization known as DignityUSA. I am well acquainted with the lifelong harmful effects that gay people suffer from being forced to suppress their natural God given gay sexual orientation during their early childhood years growing up, as well as, the violence they experience as young gay adults. 

I have listened to parents of gay children, from across the US, those who are Catholic riddled with guilt from, first, subjecting their gay children to the dictates of the Catechism of the Catholic Church on Homosexuality, because they founded that what they were led to believe was the best for their gay child - instead, they were horrified to find that they were causing their gay children unnecessary and excruciating suffering. This type of revelation for loving parents is extremely devastating to learn that what they thought was beneficial for their gay child that it was presumed sanctioned by God - God’s will - was in fact lethally harmful to the safety and well-being of their gay child. And somewhere through this process parents agonize in any number of possible ways from feelings of guilt, betrayal and anger towards God, until like in organizations, such as, Pflag ("Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays") are they then able to openly discuss these endless feelings with other parents of gay children - often including a number of Catholic parents. Meeting with other concerned gay parents they are able to resolve their issues and find support and healing and connected ever more closely to their gay child or gay adult child. 















Holy Family Parish, Sparta, Michigan 

A good part of my moral reasoning for “coming out” March 1997 - 20 years ago - was, first of all, of course to protect children growing up gay from the lifelong harmful effects caused by the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms that strongly contributes to forced suppression of their gay sexual orientation. But I also felt deeply for the parents of gay children who seem to be tortured by the fact believing that they somehow caused their child to be gay. And then to feel additional severe grief when they learn that what they were led to believe was God’s will according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church on Homosexuality was lethally harming their gay child. For me I had previously spent several years professionally studying the both the science and scriptural aspects of homosexuality - I knew the truth of the matter that these parents of gay children did nothing wrong that being gay truly is a gift from God. Being a priest I could not stand by and do nothing - if I was dumber - more stupid - like the curia and hierarchy were and still are - I could have avoided “coming out.” 

I am no rocket scientist - but I sure do know what to do when people are hurting - you get up and help them anyway you can - with all your heart, soul and mind. My thinking was that if I could learn the truth of the science and scripture on homosexuality - surely those in the Vatican should be able to ace it that is master it. To say that I was upset with those in the Vatican, for their negligence - at the time, would be a GROSS understatement. If they had done their job properly - I would have never had to “come out” and parents of gay children would not be grieving and gay children would be much safer. 

It was not until the arrival of Pope Francis - and his respect for gay people, including gay priests that was like a smoke bomb that drove out all the repressed homosexuals of the curia and hierarchy in an unprecedented emotional furry like a volcano explosion beneath the ocean sending a tsunami reaction that sweep over the entire planet. It was only then that I slowly began to realized that these men - themselves - were victims of the same type early childhood forced suppression of their gay sexual orientation that was related to the precise reason that I came out to protect gay children from. 

As Pope Francis started addressing all the vital pressing issues involving the people who were suffering from the immediacy of life and death situations that I began to feel reassured that someone responsible was in charge being a true Catholic. And every complaint made by members the curia and hierarchy against Pope Francis revealed more and more about the personalities of each member and their collective problem being repressed homosexuals. The one of the best thing Pope Francis did was to encourage open dialogue on all issues “freedom of the press.” Previously, all statements that were made at the Vatican - led us to believe that it all came directly from Benedict XVI himself, while the curia members who truly made these statements hid behind the curia’s wall of bureaucratic anonymity. It is unclear that it was all willfully intended by members of the curia. 
The curia’s wall of bureaucratic anonymity was noted in the empirical research study on the Archbishop Hunthausen Affair in the 1980s. Photo

For the most part that abuse of papal authority by members of the curia has ended. Cardinal Burke disobeyed a direct order from Pope Francis last December 2016 regarding the Knights of Malta and condoms that no one was to be fired - everything was to be worked through dialogue. Well, Cardinal Burke’s understanding of dialogue and Pope Francis’s understanding of dialogue are completely opposite. Without any dialogue Burke fired the Knight’s Grand Chancellor, Albrecht Von Boeselager - on the charge of disobedience (https://cruxnow.com/analysis/2017/02/15/knights-malta-chief-says-burke-asked-official-resign/). Cardinal Robert Sarah on two occasions issued statements regarding liturgy that were contrary to Pope Francis and Pope Francis publicly corrected Sarah (https://www.ncronline.org/news/vatican/francis-corrects-sarah-liturgical-translations-not-be-imposed-vatican). 

With Benedict XVI in retirement - the antigay hostility that was all hidden behind the curia's wall of secrecy of bureaucratic anonymity and attributed to Benedict, as well as, many other questionable and usually ruthless antics of the members of the curia had to a large degree ended. This was most obviously exposed at the time of the release of the midterm report of the Synod on Family October 2014 that listed the results of the open discussion on how to be more pastorally welcoming to gay people and their families, even the possibility of valuing gay long term committed relationships. Their collective - intense emotional outrage to the open discussion on gay people - exposed the truth about the incompetency of the members of the curia to be in the positions that they held, including their abuses of papal authority including though not limited to - the condemning of gay people.

With this wall of secrecy down - it helped to shine a clearer light on Benedict and many serious problems and situations that were contributed him no longer appeared to be true. My judgmental attitude of Benedict ceased, as I began to research his personality as related to his historical past and the likely psychological effect it would had on him. 

The one single question that kept driving this research was the same one that has been annoying me ever since I came out 1997 - how come the men in the Vatican were not aware of the science and scripture understanding on homosexuality? How could the science on homosexuality that is accepted by all the major medical and mental health associations and organizations around the world stating that homosexuality is a normal and positive variation of human sexuality and that attempts to change or repress a child’s gay sexual orientation has known to have dangerous effects on the safety and well-being of the child - not even be in the radar range of understanding by the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy??? Surely, they cannot all be so stupid. Or can they be??? If they are - how did they ever get to be leaders of the Catholic Church???

Again, the answer to these questions is related to the same reasoning for which I came out March 1997. I came out to protect children growing up gay from the lifelong harmful effects caused by the unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms that strongly contributes to the forced suppression of a child’s gay sexual orientation. From the tons of documented facts - the curia members appeared more and more to be victims of this same unidentified form of early childhood abuse. How did this all happen?

The trail of facts indicate that it begins with Benedict XVI that though through no fault of his - he was born into the Nazi social environment where the unprecedented horrific atrocities in human history were instigated by Hitler and had evolved. Ian Kershaw describes this Nazi social environment when he describes Hitler's place in history as:

Primarily, as the inspiration of the most lethal and destructive war in history, and of the most terrible genocide the world has ever seen. He left behind him not just physical, but also moral, ruination 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

As stated above: 

Benedict XVI for the first, 18 years of his life - he grew up in rise and fall of Hitler and the Nazi regime. People hardly ever consider the lifelong harmful effects that a child sustains living through the wages of war. Had Benedict XVI never been assigned to the second most powerful position in the Catholic Church, as head of the CDF, we would never have known up close the variety of hardships, many that are unidentified that children suffer from being exposed the explicit and implicit aspects of the violence of war. This is especially true for children growing up in Nazi Germany 1933-1945 and in the devastation of the aftermath the followed after the war. 

Benedict born in 1927 was raised in the Nazi social environment 1933-1945 that was the most irrational and barbaric inhuman form of radicalization ever recorded in human history. Through the years of his appointment as head of the office of the CDF - it seems important to note that according to Benedict XVI himself this was a job he did not want and that he had asked to be relieved from many times, however, his requests were all denied. The through these years it would appear that he had been troubled with “flashbacks” to traumatic events experienced in his early childhood years growing up, numerous times. This is not unlike combat soldiers who after returning are suffering from PTSD. However, these “flashbacks” would appeared to be triggered by some emotional aspect happening in the present that recalled a similar emotional situation in the past but not the event that was originally connected with it. Benedict widely known as a kindly gentle mild mannered man was then described as 'God's Rottweiler.' 


'God's Rottweiler' silenced many as head of doctrinal congregation 
February 27, 2013 
During his time at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (1981-2005), the office became one of the most controversial Vatican agencies. He decried secularization, liberation theology, radical feminism, homosexuality, religious pluralism and bioethics.
Numerous Catholics found themselves in hot ecclesial water: Fr. Hans Küng; Jesuit Fr. Karl Rahner; Seattle Archbishop Raymond Hunthausen; Leonardo Boff; Fr. Charles Curran; Fr. Tissa Balasuriya; Jesuit Fr. Roger Haight; Fr. Matthew Fox; Loretto Sr. Jeannine Gramick and Salvatorian Fr. Robert Nugent; Dominican Fr. Gustavo Gutiérrez; and Jesuit Fr. Jacques Dupuis, among others...

Emotional & Neglect Child Abuse 
Photo & more 
The priorities are twisted around. Yes, children in the digital world need to be protected. However, turning to external forces to prevent this harm to children without tackling the internal forces of the curia’s and hierarchy's ignorance of the science of homosexuality for the past 60 years and their pervasive dissociated homophobia still leaves children unprotected in the digital world. In addition - it helps to fuel the hysteria of the ignorance of societal antigay prejudges that greatly contributes to the harm to children. By example - it teaches people the are of projection - how not to remove the plank in one’s own eye before removing the speck in our brother’s eye (Matthew 7:5). ”Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection). Though this is not true of Pope Francis, he has consistently championed the need to dialogue the issues of gay people and assigned Fr. James Martin to help begin this dialogue. 
However, Pope Francis has not been supported in this endeavor by the majority of the curia and hierarchy. 

When you experience bitterness, put your faith in all those who still work for good: in their humility lies the seed of a new world. Pope Francis 

Pope Francis at Mass in Santa Marta: rediscover your roots
05/10/2017
….Pope Francis said. “Without roots,” he continued, “we cannot live: a people without roots or at risk of losing roots, is a sick people”:
“A person without roots, who has forgotten his roots, is sick. Finding, rediscovering their roots and taking the strength to go forward, the strength to flourish and, as the poet says, ‘the power to flourish because – he says – what the tree has borne in fruit comes from what he has buried.’ Just that relationship between the root and the good we can do.”
Along this journey of recovery, however, the Pope noted, there has been “so much resistance”:
“Resistance comes from those who prefer exile, and when there is no physical exile, psychological exile: self-exile from the community, from society, from those who prefer to be uprooted people, without roots. We must think of this psychological self-exile as a disease: it does so much harm. It takes away the roots. It takes away our belonging.”…

The curia and hierarchy had been thickly insulated by societal antigay prejudges, including having been raised above being human - who can do no wrong - this is blasphemy there is only one God. Because of their ignorance of the science of homosexuality for the past 60 years and their pervasive cruel treatment of gay people - goes un-challenged and unchecked - their violence has been “normalized” as "just the way things are.” In the immediacy of protecting children - in explaining and in visually illustrating the psychological developmental harm caused to the members of the curia and hierarchy and he harm they continue to inflict on others (BDSM) with no juridical oversight - I have used some provocative images of men partially nude no more harmful than Michelangelo’s statue of David. These images serve another purpose as well - in observing their and people's reactions to the images - tells everything about their sexual orientation, including societal reactions.

What you cannot do is accept injustice.
From Hitler – or anyone.
You must make the injustice visible
– be prepared to die like a
 soldier to do so.
Mahatma Gandh

The contrast between Pope Francis and the “curia and hierarchy” is made more visible - it is more clearly defined using these provocative images. These provocative images - helps to make the invisibility and the acceptability of this cruel and insidious form of structural violence child abuse caused to children by the influence of unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms (societal antigay prejudices). They make visible how destructive the lifelong harmful effects that is caused by
this invisible and normalized form of child abuse is not only played out in their adult lives, but how they are inflicted the same onto other children by their adult BDSM treatment of gay people.

For verification of these facts - check out the internal and external (international relationships) stability of the countries that permit public displays of lethal violence against gay people i.e. throwing off gay people off the rooftops of 10 story buildings to their deaths. These antigay countries are destroying the development of human empathy and are nurturing the development of hatred and the continual misery and unproductive lives of their people. 

How unfortunate that the organizational culture of the curia of the Vatican mirrors the hostilities of these antigay countries both internally and externally (international relationships) in regards to their instability because they like these antigay countries have permitted public displays though in the form of structure violence the roots of lethal violence against gay people, in particular gay priests. Their unwarranted mistreatment of gay people is done - in the name of an arbitrary form of love, which is a twisted form of hatred, because they like these antigay countries have no consideration of the science on homosexuality. Therefore, instead of the Vatican’s curia and the hierarchy representing a model of a social environment of the Church - they represent a twisted form of love that in reality is the opposite and no one seems to care about this form of hypocrisy that is excepted for Pope Francis. 


Pope Francis: a Curia that is outdated, sclerotic or indifferent to others is an ailing body 
Dec. 22, 2014
  …“It is good to think of the Roman Curia as a small model of the Church, that is, a body that seeks, seriously and on a daily basis, to be more alive, healthier, more harmonious and more united in itself and with Christ”…
    ...The sickness of “chatter, grumbling and gossip: this is a serious illness that begins simply, often just in the form of having a chat, and takes people over, turning them into sowers of discord, like Satan, and in many cases cold-blooded murderers of the reputations of their colleagues and brethren. It is the sickness of the cowardly who, not having the courage to speak directly to the people involved, instead speak behind their backs”...

Early Childhood - Victimized & Powerless

with the

P e r p e t u a t i n g 
Same Childhood Abuse

The curia and hierarchy - as adult victims of this form of child abuse to escape the victimization of feeling powerless as children during this abuse - they become extremely ridge and orthodox without empathy in the same way they experienced being abused as children and identify with the aggressiveness of their abusers be they an abusive parent or religion or the Vatican. The majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy who are extremely antigay are unconsciously identifying with the Vatican as a BDSM abuser. They made the BDSM Vatican abuser into a god they worship that is completely void of empathy. Yes, this twisted thinking - but twisted thinking that they were forcefully subjected to in the social environments that had been saturated with societal antigay prejudices, which they were raised in and victimized by. The essence of societal antigay prejudges is a void of truth, because of the absence of science on homosexuality and therefore it is void of love that then has been twisted around to mean the opposite - hatred - and erroneously believed and called it LOVE! 

Pope Francis comes in from Argentina - a social environment completely void of any extreme societal antigay prejudices experienced by the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy and he tears down this false BDSM image of the Vatican because it makes no sense to him. Pope Francis has no need to identify with any aggressive abuser to that extreme degree. He has been untwisting this false perception and violence that was erroneously made into pseudo-doctrine of the Church and humbly as a sinner on the move (as he sees himself) relentlessly is restoring the love Christ not as he sees it but as the diversity of the Church sees it from all around the world - from input from every human being - no one is excluded. Pope Francis is restoring the true meaning of Catholic - universal - everyone. 


Who Is to Blame for 
the Dissociated Homosexuals Curia and Hierarchy?


Who is to blame for this horrendous global destruction? The majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy were very young children growing up during their early childhood psychological developmental years - in social environments saturated with extremely unsubstantiated societal antigay prejudices. How can they be blamed? We are aware of the mental dissociation of being gay that takes place beginning in early childhood after being forced out traumatizing fear of parental abandonment - to suppress their gay sexual orientation that this form of dissociation is formed and can last throughout a lifetime. It is extremely destructive to not only the person but to society as well. 








Emotional Abuse
Break the Cycle—rather than perpetuate it.
The cruelties of structural violence on children are often subtle, unspoken, unrecognized, and even normalized, regarded by many people as natural or “just the way things are (http://u.osu.edu/christie/files/2014/10/Chapter-10-Children-Structural-Violence-Schwebel-Christie-2jjgq7s.pdf).” 

It causes the child to dissociate from any awareness or understanding of his gay sexual orientation. This means that as the child continues to  mature and enters into his adolescent years (13 to 19 years old) that like all adolescents he will begin for the first time to experience of a flood of new sexual sensations. However, these powerful feelings of being sexually aroused, will not be identified, as such by this gay adolescent. This is because from early childhood - out of traumatic fear - as a child, he has been coerced into accepting the unfounded and perverted belief that anything gay is evil. Even though the child, at that age, has absolutely no conceptual understanding of the adult's perception of what gay means. The child will only mirror the adult’s ignorance and fear of gay people. Driven by childhood traumatizing fear and hysteria of being abandoned by his parents the child - for the sake of survival that child will learned how to automatically dissociated from anything that is even remotely perceived as gay, such:

Hiding activities learned in childhood often persist into young adulthood, middle age and even senescence, leading many gay people to conceal important aspects of themselves.
Closeted individuals frequently cannot acknowledge to themselves, let alone to others, their homoerotic feelings, attractions and fantasies. Their homosexuality is so unacceptable that it must be kept out of conscious awareness and cannot be integrated into their public persona. Consequently, these feelings must be d i s s o c i a t e d from the self and 
h i d d e n from others…

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… 


















Who is to Blame 
for Dissociation of Gay Teenagers?


Being dissociated from the reality of being a gay person from early childhood is extremely dangerous, especially during adolescence years of childhood development. It is a time when a child begins experiencing the maturation of his or her sexual development of mind and body. It is a time of great confusion experiencing an explosion of new sexual sensations never experienced before. It can be even overwhelming for some. It is a time hard enough for heterosexual children turning into teenagers in social environments that are strongly supportive of heterosexual relationships, ubiquitously appearing everywhere in all forms of media. This time is even more extreme for a dissociated gay child turning into a teenager - homosexual relationships are not ubiquitously seen everywhere and even less and less 30, 40, 50 years into the past. 

A gay child turing into a teenager is doing so without a clue of being gay or what it means to be gay, because being gay is unconsciously abhorrent to the child in a dissociated state of mind. The reason for this dissociated state of mind is because he was forced to suppress any outward expressions of being gay beginning in early childhood years and this has remained constant since that time. The gay child will vigilantly repressed any expression that is upsetting to the parents. The child truly wants to be loved and be thought as a good child by his parents and by God. But the child is being forced to suppress something "his gay sexual orientation" that the child nor anyone can ever suppressed. This will be explain more fully below in describing the science of homosexuality, 

And at the time that this suppression took place would have been traumatic for the child, which means that these memories would have almost automatically been repressed into the unconscious mind. The child would likely grow up feeling asexual having no sexual feelings. Although, he would still have sexual feelings but these feelings would not be consciously acknowledged as such. This is a dangerous state of mind that a child was forced into, because as this child grows into the developmental stage of adolescence he will be unaware when he is acting out his sexual feelings in a number of harmless ways that often end up being exceedingly embarrassing for him, if and when he realizes the reality of his gay sexual orientation.

However, entering the teenage years, ages of 13 to 20 years old, these sexual feelings would naturally become more pronounced though even then the teenagers will still not acknowledge these as gay sexual feelings. But these sexual feelings will still continuously struggle 24/7 to be expressedThis is true about the adolescence developmental  aspects of sexual orientation for heterosexuals as well as, for homosexuals. During adolescence, a turbulent developmental stage of the maturation of human sexuality can be overwhelming for any teenagers. It is even more turbulent for a gay adolescent, because he can be in a severe dissociation state of mind, which means he has been suppressing all sexual feelings since early childhood. In addition, there are no public images of gay couples, as there are of straight couples that tends to dominate all forms of media. The gay adolescence, grows up in a social isolation, most especially true in past decades.  











He is likely to act out dissociatively in a number of different ways and still not acknowledge that he is gay. For example, as it often happens - he can be in a dissociative state of mind, and be strongly attached to another straight teenager and they can be understood as just good friends. However, the reality is that for the gay teenager this friendship would be more of a camouflage for romantic relationship, a relationship similar the way that a heterosexual teenager has with a girlfriend. If the truth of this gay dissociation was made known to this gay teenager - he would likely be devastated with shame and be wallowing in painful humiliation, so thick was the gay teenager's wall of dissociation.













Gay Midadolescence stories about their first loves
The Overstimulation of Everyday Life: 
I. New Aspects of Male Homosexuality
Sidney H. Phillips, M.D., 2002

Dr. Phillips views homosexuality as a normal process of the variations of human sexuality. He has found as other researchers in this area have found that men in their twenties and early thirties who are openly gay report histories of remembering as early as 4 and 5 years of age and older being attracted to other boys and men. These men report that in their midadolescence stories about their first loves, which they remember in “rich detail” and these stories obtained were “remarkably similar.”

They fell “head over heels” in love with a heterosexual boy. These sexually unconsummated love affairs went on for many months. The homosexual boy had to overcome some reluctance on the heterosexual boy’s part to permit greater and greater physical intimacy, especially sleeping in the same bed together. The heterosexual boy’s reservations were invariably overcome by the homosexual boy’s ingenious rationalizations and energetic persistence.
What was striking in all these stories was how both participants attended to and would not cross what seemed like a carefully constructed boundary against erotic behavior or dialogue. As long as all proceeded under the “innocent,” permissive guise of, mutual, close friendship, the relationships continued. These strange love affairs between homosexual and heterosexual adolescent boys predictably all ended the same way: the heterosexual boy eventually turned his attentions to a heterosexual girl…

The Overstimulation of Everyday Life: 
I. New Aspects of Male Homosexuality
Sidney H. Phillips, M.D., 2002
Ann Psychoanal 30:131-45
Abstract
Western heterosexual culture surrounds the homosexually inclined boy in a climate of erotic overstimulation that powerfully affects his development and adult sexual adaptation. This assertion is illustrated through a case presentation of a homosexual man who shared a bed with his brother from childhood into adolescence. Analysis of the patient's transference enactment—repeatedly falling asleep on the couch—gradually revealed the psychic impact of this everyday overstimulation: the creation of a tantalized inner world of longing. The regular occurrence and developmental understanding of adolescent homosexual boysunrequited love affairs with adolescent heterosexual boys are described and explored. Finally, the overstimulation of everyday life is proposed as a new model for understanding certain behavioral aspects of male homosexuality, such as the avoidance of rough-and-tumble play in childhood and homosexual cruising.

"Homosexuality: coming out of the confusion”
Sidney H. Phillips, M.D. - Int J Psychoanal

Sidney H. Phillips, M.D., is a training and supervising analyst of the Western New England Institute for Psychoanalysis; Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine.

In this paper, Dr. Phillips describes the complications of how the historical context of social norms can significantly influence the classification of the components of homosexuality by clinicians causing them to be blind to their own biases. Mindful of our susceptibility to this kind of phenomenon, Dr. Phillips calls to task these biases that pathologize homosexuality simply because it is not consistent with heterosexuality and therefore to be classified as a mental disorder. He offers an alternative description of homosexuality from his clinical research that is consistent with other researchers of early childhood psychological development of children who grow up to be gay.

When homosexuality is understood as a natural developmental process of human sexuality, what happens to the children who grow up to be gay? These children are often subjected to a kind of continuous harm that can be considered torturous being raised in a world where heterosexuality is considered the only accepted norm. A psychological harm is inflicted on these children throughout their early childhood developmental years that have lasting effects throughout their adult years having been raised in a social environment influenced by harsh antigay social and religious norms…
Fr. Marty Kurylowicz


The dissociated state of mind of gay teenager may be so great that acting out sexually is often acted out in subtle ways again in ways that are camouflage passing it off as just playing around or just fun wrestling. This type of a gay teenager sexually acting out is never - an overt form of sexual behavior, because the dissociated gay teenager does not have any conceptual understanding of adult sexuality. The dissociation of the gay teenager also would not allow any overt form of sexual behavior, because any overt sexual behavior would have to break through the wall of dissociation and that would be exceedingly disorienting for the teenagers completely destroying the thin layer of self esteem that he has. This is the reason why the closeted gay acting out escapades of curia and hierarchy at the Vatican have to be heavily intoxicated with drugs i.e., cocaine before they are able they can engage in any overt form of sexual acting out behavior. They never really personally connect to any of their sexual partners. This is also because the suppression of child’s gay sexual orientation is a traumatizing form an unidentified form of child abuse. Children who have been sexually abused often have sexual problems, as an adult.  


Secrets of the Vatican
March 2014
Transcript FRONTLINE | PBS
Excerpts:
ROBERT MICKENS, Vatican Correspondent, The Tablet: I came here when I was a seminarian in 1986. And I remember I had this very wide-eyed idea of the Vatican, of these holy cardinals and holy men. And I was shocked within a matter of weeks, months, at the careerism, at the sexual innuendo, the— just the whole kind of non-holy life I hadn't expected.
VATICAN GUIDE: [through interpreter] A large part of the hierarchy is homosexual. Certainly, at the top levels of the church, in the Curia, and many important people, such as bishops and archbishops, are gay.
NARRATOR: He's a Vatican guide who says he's had relationships with several priests.
VATICAN GUIDE: [through interpreter] Here in Rome, it's very easy to meet a gay priest, on a bus, in a church, and important churches like St. Peter's. It's even easier when you go to gay clubs and gay bars. You see them in the bars, and then at the altar the following Sunday…

The Vatican’s Swiss Guards Break Up a Drug-Fueled Gay Orgy in Pope Francis’ Backyard 
July 7, 2017
ROME—It all started with the usual complaints from disgruntled neighbors: funny smells, slamming doors, loud music, the sound of squeaky beds and laughter late into the night. In almost any other situation anywhere in the world, the angry neighbors would have confronted the noisy tenant, maybe left a mean note on the door or complained to the landlord and the matter would be settled. 
But this particular dispute occurred in one of the most prestigious addresses in Rome, the so-called Ex Sant’Uffizio Palace, in the very apartment owned by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith where Joseph Ratzinger lived for decades before becoming Pope Benedict XVI. The palatial ochre-colored building is home to dozens of high-ranking cardinals who live within walking distance of their jobs at the Roman Curia in Vatican City next door.
The fed-up neighbors were simply sick of what they described as a “steady stream of young men” who frequented Ratzinger’s former apartment, which had been given to Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, the secretary for Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, who heads the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, which busies itself with deciphering and clarifying various points of canon law. So they called the cops, in this case the Vatican’s elite Swiss Guard gendarmerie unit, when the noise and movida nightlife just got to be too much.
The Vatican police showed up to find an orgy in progress, with an untold number of naked men allegedly writhing around the floor with Capozzi and his cohorts, who were apparently under the influence of hard drugs according to the Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano which broke the story that a host of Italian and international media have since picked up…

And on an occasion a gay teenager in a dissociated state of mind - may acted out to a small degree sexually, again not overt sexual behavior, with another gay teenager who also is in a dissociated state of mind and not be cognizant that it was in a way sexual - rather passing it off as playing around. To be mentally dissociated from any thought of being gay is also a dissociation of all things sexual some more than others. This means that these dissociated teenagers gay sexual feelings are likely, to be express in harmless but in an inappropriate way. They will not be consciously and willfully acted out sexually and never in an adult form of sexuality, because the teenagers will not have any conceptual understanding of adult sexuality. 

This changes the psychological dynamics due to the ages of the teenagers involved it is not the same as the psychological dynamics of an adult who continually abuses minors. This is definitely NOT a series of acting out with multiple teenagers, as an adult pedophile, who cannot control himself. This form of acting out among teenagers is more of a one-time experimental acting out sexually that will happen but in a dissociated state of mind, which means they are likely to be express in harmless but in inappropriate ways. They will not be willfully acted out sexually, and not in any adult form of sexuality, because the teenagers will not have any conceptual understanding of adult sexuality. It happened in a dissociated state of mind that otherwise would not have taken place. Even though, it is not an uncommon occurrence that happens among heterosexual teenagers. It is another form of an antigay societal bias to attack a gay adolescent and to irrationally though hysterically connecting it to pedophilia, which there is absolutely no connection to be made. This is the fierce violence of societal antigay prejudges that are continually supported and fed by the curia’s and the hierarchy’s ignorance of the science on homosexuality. This is definitely NOT a series of acting out with multiple partners as an adult pedophile, who cannot control himself and has abused multiple victims. An adult pedophile is not acting out in a dissociated state of mind, because the adult pedophile is not gay. Therefore, an adult pedophile, as a child not being gay would never have been traumatized by being forced to suppress his gay sexual orientation. Therefore, he would not be in a dissociated state of mind.

Pope Francis once again “distinguished sharply between homosexuality and sexual abuse of children, which he has labeled as criminal behavior,” in his address to the members of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors gathered for their Plenary Assembly. He stated that "Pedophilia is a sickness."










Pope Francis acknowledges Catholic Church’s bad practices during the sex abuse crisis
September 21, 2017
ROME — Pope Francis acknowledged that the Catholic Church was slow to address the sex abuse crisis, including its widely criticized but not publicly acknowledged practice of moving priests who had abused children to other churches instead of reporting them to the police, saying “the church’s conscience came a bit late.”
The pope gave off-the-cuff remarks to a commission he created to tackle the issue, acknowledging the slow pace of church trials and an overall lack of awareness of the problem inside St. Peter’s walls.
Pedophilia is a sickness,” Pope Francis said. “Today one repents, moves on, we forgive him, then two years later he relapses. We need to get it in our heads that it’s a sickness.”
The pope announced he would do away with Vatican appeal trials for cases where evidence of abuse against minors is proven. “If there’s evidence, that is final,” he said.
Those who’re sentenced because of sexual abuses against minors can indeed appeal to the pope and ask for a pardon, but I’ve never signed one of those, and I never will,” he said. “I hope this much is clear.
The pope’s rationale for doing away with an appeal process — according to Italian news outlets’ transcripts of his words — lies in his own experience. Faced with such a case at the very beginning of his papacy, he said he’d opted for “the more benevolent path” instead of defrocking a priest. “After two years, though, the priest relapsed,” he said, which became a learning experience for the pope.
A well-placed Vatican source confirms that these words convey the pope’s own “personal bitterness, as well as the difficulty of curing [pedophiles], as it was once thought possible, which instead ended up being quite a failure.”…
“I suppose [Pope Francis is] stating what is obvious,” Collins said. Since the beginning of his papacy, Francis has spoken of the horrors of abuse and spoken to survivors of abuse, asking for forgiveness several times.
However, Collins believes this may be the first time the pope has addressed how the church handles priests. Some bishops would move priests accused of abusing children to other churches, allowing them to continue their abuse.
“We’re getting an admission of problems that were there,” she said. “The less denial there is, the more chance there is for change.”…

Had this same gay teenager been raised in an open and accepting social environment of gay people, absence of any societal antigay prejudges - this gay child would had grown-up being accepting his own gay sexual orientation and the child throughout his development years would have had a acquired a better understanding of his sexual feelings. And the gay child like a heterosexual child would learn that even though he will have sexual feelings, he would have been told that sexuality is meant for marriage. The child will learn through his developmental years that he had to control his sexual feelings until he met someone he falls in love with and got married. The gay child like the heterosexual child would have been taught how to manage his sexual feelings and to express them appropriately in life. 

However, a gay child who had been forced - traumatized to suppress any expression of a gay sexual orientation - would not be taught any ways to manage his sexual feelings and definitely if the child is Catholic he would never be told that his sexual feelings had to wait until he found someone he fell in love with and planned on marrying. This is tying the plastic bag that was placed over the child's head in early childhood and not giving the child any future hope of falling in love with someone this is tying this plastic bag more tightly around the child's neck. This is inhuman - this is also killing the development of empathy - and the first time that this gay child as a teenager blindly acts out sexually in a very limited form - he is published for life. This is invisiblenormalized child cruelty to the extreme. The ramifications of this inhuman act are more wide spread in endorsing approved violence around the world, by example. This is true both of the ignorance that prompted this atrocious treatment and the actual act of committing this atrocious deed. It has nothing to do with love. Before the respect of climate change or the digital protection of children - these atrocious deeds must be rectified and this would more likely open the door to restoring the development of empathy to help end the other two. 

Notice, as I explain below, how enormous global attention that Pope Francis received when he made the statement about gay priests July 2013 "Who am I to judge?" Was he reawakening empathy in the world by acknowledging the truth about gay people and thereby by extension was denouncing the mistreatment of gay people. Not to acknowledge this invisible cruel inhuman treatment of gay adolescents - is by extension is to condone this Vatican's sadistic and contemptuous actions to teenagers that leads to throwing people off the rooftops of 10 story buildings. 


It is instilling in the world - the approval of same BDSM behavior, by members of the curia and hierarchy who experienced the same BDSM behavior when they were teenagers. There are ample examples overflowing of the same form of dissociated closeted gay sexual acting out behaviors though in an adult form of sexuality - of the curia and hierarchy and like the public figures who openly condemn homosexuality, but are found having gay sex in public restrooms. 



















Who is to Blame 
for Dissociation of Gay Teenagers
Acting Out Sexually?


Who is the blame for this sexual acting out? Again, certainly not the adolescent teenagers who was forced out traumatizing fear in early childhood years to suppress his gay sexual orientation, at time when the child had no concept of what “gay” meant to an adult. The suppression of a child’s gay sexual orientation is the blame - it was a heinous form of child abuse. And then to blame him for his dissociative acting out event as a teenager is even more despicably heinous for something that was not his fault, in the first place. This teenager was being obedient to his parents forcing the suppression of any outward expression of being gay. His parents were only being obedient to the Vatican’s condemnation of homosexuality. This is NOT in the least any form of pedophilia. These were experimental events that are common in the same developmental stages of heterosexual teenagers. However, because heterosexuality is culturally the only accepted form of human relationships - when the same events happens with a homosexual teenagers - it is hysterically condemned, especially by the Vatican. Pope Francis in less than a few months of being elected to papacy March 2013, he publicly expressed profound respect for gay priests by extension to all gay people and at the same time he courageously made the sharp distinction between homosexuality and the criminal behavior of child abuse. 


On Gay Priests, Pope Francis Asks, ‘Who Am I to Judge?’ 
July 29, 2013
ROME — For generations, homosexuality has largely been a taboo topic for the Vatican, ignored altogether or treated as “an intrinsic moral evil,” in the words of the previous pope. 
In that context, brief remarks by Pope Francis suggesting that he would not judge priests for their sexual orientation, made aboard the papal airplane on the way back from his first foreign trip, to Brazil, resonated through the church. Never veering from church doctrine opposing homosexuality, Francis did strike a more compassionate tone than that of his predecessors, some of whom had largely avoided even saying the more colloquial “gay.” 
If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis told reporters, speaking in Italian but using the English word “gay.”…

Reflections on Pope Francis 
Is he a reformer, a traditionalist, or both? 
WINTER/SPRING 2014 
HARVARD DIVINITY SCHOOL
Catholicism and LGBT Communities 
Pope Francis's statements on gay priests and same-sex marriages have come under intense public scrutiny. In response to the question of why he had not removed Monsignor Battista Ricca, whom he had appointed to a supervisory group at the Vatican Bank, he affirmed his nonjudgmental affirmation of the person and his willingness to keep him in the position— despite allegations that Monsignor Ricca had a homosexual relationship in his past. He has distinguished sharply between homosexuality and sexual abuse of children, which he has labeled as criminal behavior. His response took people by surprise. On the one hand, it represents a very traditional position, distinguishing between a homosexual person and a homosexual act and maintaining that homosexuals, like heterosexuals, could aspire to the priesthood as long as they were celibate. On the other hand, his statement represents a stark change from recent attitudes…

Interesting to note that after Pope Francis made this statement in support of gay priests - it was instantly heard around the world. It was absolutely surprising he did not lose any respect for the papacy. What happened instead was the complete reverse - he received phenomenal respect by people all over the world, it seems especially by large numbers of non-catholics. Ever since, then we have heard a constant stream of people endlessly saying, "I am not Catholic, but I sure do like your pope." What does this mean? Did Pope Francis untwist the decades of the arbitrary twisted form of love espoused by the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy, which was really disguised hatred? Their twisted form of love was galvanized in layers of "groupthink" that is completely void of outside input. Again, this is showing the inability of the curia and hierarchy to connect empathically to anyone, however, this is not true of all members. 

Thank God, no matter how small there always seems to be an array of hope that is a reminder that there are members of the hierarchy who truly care about gay children and like Pope Francis are reaching out to help. These bishops and priests must not be forgotten, like Christ making changes to bring God's love to people and children never ever begins in a herd. It only begins in a single, but very powerful, flame of God's love in hearts and minds of small numbers of individual people - like Bishop John Dolan and Fr. Lucio Castillo. Thank you for your courageous faith and kindness to gay children and their parents and families, Fr. MSK.

San Diego bishop celebrates special Mass for parents of L.G.B.T. Catholics
October 10, 2017 
Members of the Catholic L.G.B.T. community and their families gathered in a San Diego church on Saturday to celebrate Mass and observe the 20th anniversary of a letter from bishops meant to address the pastoral needs of Catholic parents with gay and lesbian children.
“‘Always Our Children’ was written at a time when good and faithful churchgoing Catholics were witnessing society quickly change before their eyes and the church seemed—in their eyes—to stand still,” Bishop John Dolan, an auxiliary bishop in the Diocese of San Diego, preached at St. John the Evangelist Church, located in San Diego’s historically gay-friendly Hillcrest neighborhood.
The U.S. bishops’ committee on marriage and family released the letter “Always Our Children” in 1997 as an attempt to encourage parents not to abandon their gay and lesbian children and to assure them of God’s love. It received mixed reactions at the time, with some Catholics decrying it as a capitulation to the still-nascent gay rights movement while others said it did not go far enough to combat bigotry in the church and wider society…

Chicago Daily Tribune: - May 29, 1937



The Compulsion to Repeat the Trauma 
Re-enactment, Revictimization, and Masochism 
Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD
During the formative years of contemporary psychiatry much attention was paid to the continuing role of past traumatic experiences on the current lives of people. Charcot, Janet, and Freud all noted that fragmented memories of traumatic events dominated the mental life of many of their patient…Janet thought that traumatic memories of traumatic events persist as unassimilated fixed ideas that act as foci for the development of alternate states of consciousness, including dissociative phenomena, such as fugue states, amnesias, and chronic states of helplessness and depression. Unbidden memories of the trauma may return as physical sensations, horrific images or nightmares, behavioral reenactments, or a combination of these. Janet showed how traumatized individuals become fixated on the trauma: difficulties in assimilating subsequent experiences as well. It is "as if their personality development has stopped at a certain point and cannot expand anymore by the addition or assimilation of new elements.” …The trauma permanently disturbed the capacity to deal with other challenges, and the victim who did not integrate the trauma was doomed to "repeat the repressed material as a contemporary experience in instead or . . . remembering it as something belonging to the past.” In this article, I will show how the trauma is repeated on behavioral, emotional, physiologic, and neuroendocrinologic levels, whose confluence explains the diversity of repetition phenomena. 
Many traumatized people expose themselves, seemingly compulsively, to situations reminiscent of the original trauma. These behavioral reenactments are rarely consciously understood to be related to earlier life experiences…
Trauma can be repeated on behavioral, emotional, physiologic, and neuroendocriniologic levels. Repetition on these different levels causes a large variety of individual and social suffering. Anger 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.

July 12, 2017 

Bishop David J. Walkowiak
Bishop of the Grand Rapids Diocese
360 Division Avenue S., 
Grand Rapids, MI 49503-4501

Dear Bishop David, 

I received your letter dated October 2015, that included a request to set an appointment to dialogue with you. At the time, my commitments,obligations and lack of financial means did not permit me to follow through. Furthermore, the around trip from Canton, MI to Grand Rapids, MI would have been about eight hours. However, after seeking reliable spiritual direction I was advised to write a letter to accept your request to meet. In the process of writing this letter, I began to thoroughly research the situation, from the combined insight obtained from three professionals perspectives, as a priest, as a psychologist, and as a historian. Through these perspectives, I have analyzed the many ways in which I was a victim of antigay hierarchal violence, having no judicial oversight to appeal to for protection within the church or civilly. This is an unidentified form of structural violence directed not at me alone but also many priests, theologians, sisters, religious and others, including Pope Francis for the past four decades - all have been victims of this form of violence. 

S t r u c t u r a l   V i o l e n c e
Introduction
by Deborah Du Nann Winter and Dana C. Leighton
Peace, conflict, and violence: Peace psychology in the 21st century
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 invisibleembedded 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…
Section II:  Winter, D. D., & Leighton, D. C. (2001). Structural violenceIn D. J. Christie, R. V. Wagner, & D. D. Winter (Eds.), Peace, conflict, and violence: Peace psychology in the 21st centuryNew York: Prentice-Hall.

The main purpose of this form of structural violence is to silence and remove anyone in the Church who openly discusses the science on the sexual orientation of homosexuality - gay people. This antigay hierarchical, structural violence has been successful in firmly suppressing this science on homosexuality for the past 60 years. In 1957, world renowned psychologist, Dr. Evelyn Hooker conducted ground breaking research proving that homosexuality is not a mental illness. She proved that being homosexual was just as normal as being heterosexual. For years the hierarchical church has rebuked such scientifically sound findings and have championed the obsessive suppression of gay people. Such actions lead to question who benefits from falsifying truth? The hierarchical church did not suppress the scientific research on heart surgery or cancer for the past 60 years. This vicious form of gay suppression is entrenched in the corruption of the curia in which speaking the truth has become a reprehensible thing. Through my years of analysis, I have come to find that the greatest harm this suppression imposes is on our children.

Truly I tell you, unless you 
change and become like little children, 
you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 
Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this 
child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 
And whoever welcomes one such child in 
my name welcomes me. 
Matthew 18: 3-5


…whoever causes one of these 
little ones 
who believe in Me to stumble, 
it would be better for him 
to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, 
and to be drowned in the 
depth of the sea. 
Matthew 18:6

My “coming out” in March 1997 was all based on substantiated science and scripture. Furthermore, it was motivated to protect defenseless children. How did risking my life by coming out warrant such extreme vindictive retaliation for the past 20 years by members of the curia and hierarchy? 

How did it get twisted around that I refused to return to the Grand Rapids Dioceses, when in fact, it was made clear to me that it was unsafe for me to return by their coercing me to acquiesce to being sent away to be re-educated on the science on the sexual orientation of homosexuality. They wanted me to leave the priesthood on my own, which would be another grave sin to commit. Since I had no recourse to appeal to for justice in 1997 - what recourse would I have available to me if I returned and more severe immoral tactics were used against me?

This tactic of the curia to dispose of someone was most recently demonstrated by Cardinal Raymond Burke firing Boeselager the Grand Chancellor of the Knights of Malta. Burke falsified a papal decision of Pope Francis that no one was to be fired, that the problematic issues with the Knights of Malta should be resolved through dialogue. Burke without any true dialogue with Boeselager stated that it was Pope Francis’s wish that he resign as the Grand Chancellor of the Knights of Malta. When Boeselager refused to resign because of “unreasonable circumstances,” Burke fired him on the grounds of disobedience. Sound familiar?  Boeselager, then appealed directly to Pope Francis and an investigation was ordered into the firing of Boeselager. It was later exposed that the grounds that Burke had used against Boeselager were over “condoms.” However, this information was contrived by a group of Burke’s supporters known as “Lepanto Institute for the Restoration of All Things in Christ.” This group is described as a “militant traditionalist organization close to Burke (Austen Ivereigh).” “This ultraconservative organization specialized in the denunciation of "gays” entering the Church and in attacks on the major development associations that question unfettered economic liberalism (La Croix International).” On February 4, 2017, Pope Francis replaced Cardinal Burke as the Patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and overnight all over Rome appeared posters of Pope Francis with a sad expression with the words - “Where is your mercy?”

It was the truth from science and religion that morally obligated me to come out for the protection of children growing up gay in March 1997. This was an act of love and my duty as a priest. It is the true meaning of being a priest. Pope Francis  on Thursday, June 22, 2017  in his homily during Mass at Casa Santa Marta confirmed this fact stating,"The Good Shepherd gives his life for his sheep,” using as an example the parish priest of Barbiana, Fr. Don Milani, the from the Diocese of Firenze (Florence). 

The research to find the answers to these questions endlessly kept unfolding more and more information that led back in time - more than a century and a half. The research doors were opened wide once Pope Francis was elected and he along with his team of experts, and cardinals began reforming the curia. The research revealed two main historical events that were dependent on exploiting societal prejudices against gay people to rise and to stay in power. The, first, began with the ideology of Nazism promoted by Hitler and the Nazi regime that led to the deaths of 70 million people unprecedented in human history. The, second, began the with ideology of the “trickle-down theory” known as Reaganomics that led to Globalization and the greatest inequality in human history - “A world where 1% of humanity controls as much wealth as the bottom 99% will never be stable (President Obama’s departing speech to the UN General Assembly September 2016). Ian Kershaw explains what Hitler’s place in history will be:

…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 moral, ruination 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. That’s what, with the passage of time, we can see was historically defining about Hitler. Never before Hitler’s time had we seen so clearly what human beings are capable of…
…we shouldn’t mystify Hitler’s personality. The uniquenessof Nazism can’t be reduced to that strange personality. Another time, another place, and Hitler would have had no impact at all. He couldn’t have derailed a modern society without that society itself making a major contribution to its own fate… We shouldn’t be complacent about the future. New forms of fascism and racial intolerance rightly appal and worry us…
…what we can do is to remind ourselves of the essential point about Hitler: he represented the most fundamental and frontal assault ever launched on all that we associate with humanity and civilisation. 
Excerpt from: - Hitler’s Place in History - Ian Kershaw
Professor of Modern History at Sheffield University
Lecture - Wednesday 27th April 2005

Over the past year and a half - I have been researching and writing 24/7, since I received your letter - gathering significant amounts of factual data on all three levels (as a priest, psychologist and historian). This research includes my personal experience of being a victim of the hierarchical, antigay violence. As it happens when I do research, such as it did when I was doing the qualitative research on the Holocaust in graduate school for psychology, it is only after thoroughly exhausting every possible avenue several times do all the pieces begin to fall into place like  a jigsaw puzzle that a picture is formed. 

The picture centers on the crucial importance for the safety and well-being of all of humanity present and on into the future and is dependent on maintaining an ongoing dialogue between science and religion. This is necessary to obtain truth that which then gives meaning and value to love. Without this truth formed through this process - 

…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… 
Benedict XVI - Caritas in Veritate 2007  2009

Pope Benedict XVI goes on to make the warning that “Any breach in this dialogue comes only at an enormous price to human development…” St. Pope John Paul II made an early statement to this effect explaining how science and religion cannot be separated. He explains - as Benedict does that science is the study of all of God’s creation and religion is formed from the bible, which is the inspired word of God. They both explain how the dialogue between science and religion becomes a self-correcting mechanism of oversight, preventing abuse and maintaining integrity of both science and religion - thus allowing science and religion to guide us on our journey into the future. Both John Paul II and Benedict XVI are writing from their experience having lived through the atrocities of Hitler and the Nazi regime (1933-1945) that resulted from their manipulation and abuse of science and religion to invent a pseudo-science to legitimize Hitler’s ideology of Nazism and pseudo-religious terms to promote it. They experienced living in a social environment saturated in the racial ideology of Nazism - where the meaning of love was so twisted around that in actuality love meant the opposite. Love meant exterminating people considered to be less than human or subhuman - “Life Unworthy Of Life.” 

With the recent election of President Trump we are experiencing living in a similar social environment saturated with the ideology of the “trickle-down theory.” This led to Globalization that was also legitimized by the manipulation of science and religion that twisted the meaning of love around to mean the exact opposite. In addition to Mr. Trump’s behavior, the Republican Convention 2016 slogans, “Lock her up!” (that sounded like the palpable hysteria of the Nazi Party “Sieg Heil” chant at a Cathedral lit Nuremberg Rally of the 1930s) and his being elected US president are all blatant examples of love twisted to mean the opposite. Both the rise of Nazism and Globalization were depended on the exploitation of societal prejudices against gay people. 

However, in regards to rise of the  “trickle-down theory”of the 1980s that led to Globalization - the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy are responsible for the exploitation of societal prejudices against gay people. The research of Dr. Evelyn Hooker and subsequent research completely dispel prejudices against gay people. Instead of the curia and hierarchy acknowledging the truth of this science - they manipulated religion by misusing the bible and continued to wrongly condemn homosexuality. Thus they twisted the meaning of truth around to the point that it continues to mean the opposite. They and their supporters are not about truth and therefore not about love. They are no different than the palpable hysteria of the Nazi Party “Sieg Heil” members at the Nuremberg Rallies of the 1930s. And this is the violence, their twisted meaning of truth - the complete absence of love, they have used against me and against so many others before and after me. Some of our best and brightest theologians and bridge makers, such as, Sister Jeannine Gramick and Fr. Robert Nugent. Gramick and Nugent have been responsible since 1977 for saving millions of people’s lives, especially very young children. To the best of my knowledge, they were the first to begin an ongoing dialogue on the science of the sexual orientation of homosexuality - gay people and religion - scripture and theology.   

S c i e n c e   can purify religion from error and superstition; 
R e l i g i o n   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. 
St. Pope John Paul II - 1988

I came out in March 1997: for the protection of children, as young as 4 and 5 years of age, who are growing up gay. Since then it has become a moral obligation to educate and prevent forced parental suppression and unsubstantiated antigay social and religious norms.What has bothered me ever since was the fact that I found it difficult to find the  r o o t   c a u s e  in understanding “how” and “why” and “when” did the meaning of “love” and “truth” get so monumentally - twisted around; notably among the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy to mean the exact opposite.

For the past 10 years I have been writing in an effort to explain how this mindless inquisition that started almost immediately after coming out in June 1997 - of being coerced “behind closed doors” by a directive from the curia conveyed by the bishop for me to acquiesce to being sent away “somewhere” to be re-educated on the science on the sexual orientation of homosexuality. This directive was not only shocking, but traumatizing as well. 

This irrational directive from the curia completely negated the immediate need of protecting the lives of millions of very young defenseless children from lifelong debilitating harmful effects. It also negated the wealth of the authoritative substantiated research gathered from the major medical and mental health associations, institutions, and organizations, including universities. This was the reason for my “coming out.” 

Through knowledge acquired during my studies at the University of Michigan and attending the American Psychological AssociationNational Conventions my research was reinforced on the science of sexual orientation. The action of the curia and hierarchy was a blatant affront, a direct attack on truth and love, as taught and embodied in Jesus Christ, of which the entire purpose and meaning of priesthood is based on. It was like a supervisor telling a heart surgeon that he is going to be be sent away on a sabbatical to be reeducated on the ancient system of medicine known as “bloodletting.” I cannot explain how twisted it sounded - to be told such absurdity!!! “Who in the hell is running this ship?!?” I was 47 years old at the time.

How did the curia and hierarchy cause a breach in the dialogue between science and religion that ended up twisting the meaning of love around to mean the opposite?

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 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 suppressing the heart and breathing rate which can cause a number of lifelong adverse effects (persistent form of depression (dysthymia), suicidal ideation, and obsessive dislike for gay people that is implicit, to explicit verbal expressions of hate, to lethal forms of violence, and torture).

The majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy are European. They are the ones who grew up in the toxic antigay social environments left behind by Hitler’s Nazi regime. This begins to explain the long history of the majority of the members of the curia and hierarchy’s collective obsessive antigay crusade. This collective thought suppressed all emerging science on homosexuality for the past 60 years. For these members of the curia and hierarchy the thought of gay science has been a long closed door slammed shut in their early childhood years. This was out of great fear from their witnessing the terror in the adult’s warnings of how Hitler treated priests who were found out to be homosexuals. As this trauma of the early childhood events are not remembered, only the emotional terror of the event remains. It is this emotional terror that is wronglymistaken as an innate guiding voice of their conscience strongly conveying to them that homosexuality is evil. This misunderstanding then becomes a force that completely obliterates years of scientific research on homosexuality. It is more likely that such scientific research ignites seemingly unending waves of unexplainable terror. That door slammed tightly shut - is the breach in the dialogue between science and religion on the issue of homosexuality. This is a childhood defense mechanism. It is the only means available to the child to stop the unending waves of fear. However, as adults, these childhood defenses must be reexamined in a safe environment - to be challenged in the adult dialogue between science and religion on issues of homosexuality. As Pope Benedict XVI explains, this is the only process to find truth and give real value and meaning to the understanding of love. I do not presume this to be an easy task to unravel and should only be attempted in a safe environment. However, this situation - is not unusual - it brings to mind the words of St. Paul to be understood with great care and empathy.  

When I was a child, I talked like a child, 
I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. 
When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
1 Corinthians 13:11

No, no, no this type of breach in the dialogue between science and religion on gay sexual orientation has to stop! Justice demands that I be exonerated and proper restitution be made for all harm endured, including the lost salary for the past 20 years to be made quickly. Not to follow through on this road of true justice is to continue this breach in the dialogue between science and religion on gay sexual orientation. Am I, like so many others, going to be made an example of what happens when a priest speaks aloud the truth? Will this be a situation reminiscent of Hitler’s regime to remove and silence Anti-Nazi priests? Are you going demonstrate publicly how an advanced society of people made a major contribution to the modern barbarity of Hitler and the Nazi regime by their complicity and indifference?

 My moral obligation as a priest is to protect people, especially children.

I look forward to setting a time to dialogue the reality of this situation in the light of the warnings of both St. Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI while maintaining an open discussion between science and religion for the search of truth that leads to love. 


Sincerely yours,

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.

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...

 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.

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 genocide the 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…

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 notidentified 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

Injustice anywhere is a
threat to Justice everywhere 
The Nobel Peace Prize 1964

Martin Luther King Jr.




What you cannot do is accept injustice.
From Hitler – or anyone.
You must make the injustice visible
– be prepared to die like a
 soldier to do so.
Mahatma Gandhi

Kids Are Being Hurt!!!


"Someday, maybe, there will exist 
a well-informed, well considered and yet fervent public conviction that the 
most deadly of all possible sins 
is the mutilation of a child’s spirit;
for such mutilation 
undercuts the life principle of trust, without which every human act, may it feel ever so good and seem ever so right is prone to perversion by destructive 
forms of conscientiousness.”
  Erik Erikson
(Young Man Luther : A Study in Psychoanalysis and History, 1958)




…whoever causes one of these little ones 
who believe in
 Me to stumble, it 
would be better for him 
to have a heavy 
millstone hung around his neck, 
and to be drowned in the 
depth of the sea. 
Matthew 18:6




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