It would seem unbelievable that in a world that reacts to news in a matter of hours, the heretical call to disobedience from around 250 Austrian priests is still online.
Furthermore, no news has reached the internet of any serious disciplinary proceeding against the initiators of this uprising. We all know how fast a priest can be suspended pending investigation, and the news made public so that what these priests say or have said is not confused with priestly ministry. This doesn’t seem to apply to heretical priests calling to disobedience, at least not if Archbishop Cardinal Schoenborn is in charge.
This uprising has in the meantime more than 250 priests as followers, but the internet site has not been updated so we don’t know how many they have become in the meantime. The only reaction of Cardinal Schoenborn has been some obligatory meowing centred on the need of obedience, without a word of clear condemnation of the delirious theological position of the rebels.
As I write, all the priests calling to open disobedience, and whose names can be read under “Mitglieder” on the internet page, so openly shameless and sure of impunity are they, continue to be in good standing and continue to spread their heretical ideas and to confuse the faithful.
This call to disobedience is demolishing the Church in German-Speaking Countries with every day that it is allowed to stay online. It gives the Austrian Catholics the impression that rebellion be legitimate; it makes it more probable that such rebellion may spread to other German-speaking countries; it makes a mockery of the office of the priest and of his promise of obedience.
Every day that such a scandal is allowed to survive, Cardinal Schoenborn makes himself beautiful with the vast mass of Austrian “rebels lite”; those who don’t know much about Catholic doctrine, but pay the “church tax” the Cardinal is clearly after and are now, polluted by the heresies their own priest have encouraged, refusing to pay en masse; at the same time, the Cardinal gives these “catholic lite” the impression that they do have a leverage against Rome. Fools all of them, but the biggest fool is the Cardinal, who doesn’t do anything sensible (obligatory meowing not being anything sensible) to stop this and allows his desire for popularity and Kirchensteuer-money to come before sound Catholicism, the prestige of the Church and the soul of his sheep.
The initiative has started on the 19th June. If the Cardinal had been awake – and thinking about Catholicism rather than about his Kirchensteuer proceeds – the initiative would have been stopped in a matter of hours, the responsible suspended pending investigation, and an example given to everyone. This is what a shepherd does who doesn’t want heresy to spread among his sheep. Cardinal Schonborn does, of course, the exact contrary and we now have more than 250 priests in the uprising.
I can’t imagine any better way to help them to spread the heresy than the sort of fake ex officio rebuke, but in practice complete inaction, that Cardinal Schoenborn is staging.
This scandal must be stopped; the initiators and all those who have given their support suspended, investigated and asked to offer a complete retractation or – better, say I – be defrocked. Most of all, the priests responsible must be ordered to take the site down, now.
Greg Quinlan was a homosexual activist. One of the obnoxious, vocal, and truly lurid ones.
Well, this has all changed. Say farewell to the tales of unchangeable sexual orientation and hello to the truth about homosexuality, written from an insider.
Mr. Quinlan’s tale begins with a history of parental abuse, and early sexual perversion (emphases always mine).
“I knew the Scripture and liked going to church,” he said. But at age 10, a neighbor boy introduced Greg to sex. His double life had begun. “But I kept going to church and playing the Christian role,” he said. “Growing up as a teen, I was interested in sex with other men only because of that introduction,” he added. “I’ve known thousands of homosexuals and I’ve never met someone who was not introduced to sex at an early age, generally with the same sex.
These are very interesting observations: the introduction to sexual perversion adds to a climate of violence within the family, probably encouraging the low self-esteem and hate of self (homophobia) that is the most typical mark of the homosexual. Secondly, please note that he reports the frequency of early experiences of sexual perversion among homosexuals. “Born that way”, my aunt. Thirdly, a link between homosexuality, ephebophilia and the call of people like Peter Tatchell to lower the age of consent as much as they can get away with is certainly reasonable.
Let us continue with Mr. Quinlan’s life story:
At age 23 Greg made his sexual behavior public, “blowing the doors off the closet,” as he describes it. He had many sexual encounters, visited gay bath houses all across the state, was a regular patron of porn shops and lived the party life within gay social circles
The self-hating homosexual reacts, as so many, in the wrong way: he can’t see (or doesn’t want to see) the Christian side of it and his “outing” becomes a war declaration to the planet. Unfortunately for him, and for all the others, this doesn’t solve any problem, not even one. Still, the desperate desire to feel better with himself pushes Mr. Quinlan towards militancy:
“HRCF is the largest gay and lesbian political organization in the country, chiefly responsible for securing AIDS research money from the federal government,” Greg said. “I raised several thousand dollars out of Dayton and really got involved because of the AIDS project. But in all my work with HRCE I was trying to justify being in the lifestyle, because I was miserable.”
The AIDS problem – he is a nurse, and sees people die – is here just one side of the medal: the other side is expressed by his revealing words: “I was trying to justify being in the lifestyle, because I was miserable.” It doesn’t need a genius to see that this is the motivation behind homosexualism. Please remember, folks: every time you hear a homosexualist talk about his agenda, be in no doubt that he feels like shit, as he well should. The problem with these people is that they don’t use their feelings to get out of the dump of their lives, but to dig deeper into it.
Mr. Quinlan’s trajectory starts, at this point, to become slightly different:
Having grown up in church and still possessing a good knowledge of the Bible, Greg was often asked by friends to do their eulogies.So he ended up speaking at funerals and reading Scriptures. “There was the Lord’s hook,” Greg commented. “Like it says in Scripture, Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it’,” he offered, quoting from Proverbs 22:6.
Slowly, a process begins: several events concur to let him think more and more; the fall of the Berlin Wall even leads him to think (this is a Protestant, remember) that the Second Coming might draw near. Slowly, something begins to work on him, whilst he continues to lead the same lifestyle.
“I had this hunger and craving,” he recalled. “I missed the hymns, the music and the worship. Even while I was in the gay lifestyle I made a point of going to church on Easter Sunday. I still had that hunger to be satisfied, to worship the
Lord. It was still there after all those years.
As it always happens in these cases, the first small glimpse of light makes him receptive to receive, more or less willingly, more and more of it.
One show featured a number of former homosexuals who had left the gay lifestyle. “I watched intently~ partly making fin (sic), partly wishing it was true,” Greg said. “I thought, ‘Can it happen to me?’ I was really miserable.“
Notice here the small, gradual process. Please also notice the insistent repetition of the inner drama of every homosexual, whether he admits it or not.
Mr. Quinlan is encouraged to start one of those Republican “Poofs for Conservatism” groups. He refuses. He continues his lobbying activity, but something has been broken:
“You know I had been on TV, radio and in newspapers (as a homosexual activist),” Greg said. “I was not ashamed of being a homosexual and talking about the AIDS crisis. I’d go to Washington D.C. two to three times a year to lobby Capitol Hill. But I had a lot of trouble telling this guy what my problem was. I was suddenly ashamed of being gay. I wasn’t happy about it.”
Notice here the mechanism: he felt miserable, but at the same he was unashamedly homosexual. Think Peter Tatchell, or Steven Fry. This is how Satan works with homosexuals, using the bite of their own conscience to further damage their soul, to let them entrench in their own perversion. Mr Quinlan can, at this point, no longer follow this path.
The following part is very Protestant, but I think as Catholics we still get the meaning:
Greg fought through his angst and finally revealed his problem He said a prayer over the phone and accepted Jesus Christ as his savior that very night “There were no bells or whistles but I slept that night he said.”There was peace.
Greg’s decision resulted in a sudden and abrupt turn in his life. He got into church immediately changed his telephone number stopped hanging out at gay bars and discontinued his volunteer nursing with the Dayton Area AIDS Task Force. “I stopped cold turkey doing anything in the gay lifestyle,” he said.
Note here: he decides to act. And when he acts, he acts in a serious, adult manner. He even stops his AIDS volunteering work. It’s an abrupt, definitive change. Ende. Aus. Feierabend.
The end of the journey is now rapidly approaching:
But stopping the wrong behavior was merely the first step. One Sunday a guest preacher at church had a special message for Greg. Her sermon had convicted him sharply and he had gone forward to the altar where he was crying uncontrollably.
“She told me, ‘Son, there’s a call on your life’,” he related. “She told me some things only God could tell her, that what the devil had trained me to do God was going to use for his glory.” Shortly after this event the director of Ohio Christian Coalition called Greg looking for help. He worked there four years and a year ago last March left to start the Pro-Family Network.
This a man who (besides not converting to Catholicism; but hey, what did the Church in the US do to move him to change?) makes everything right: he understands that as the religious impulse was the necessary primer for his change, so he needed to ground himself into Christian thinking if he were to heal in a definitive way. The words of the preacher are truly beautiful, and he has acted wisely on them.
Today, Mr Quinlan is a vocal “ex-gay activist”, fighting to help other people get out of their terrible problem and fighting for the social recognition of the thousands of “ex-gays”, to whom President Obama has not seen fit to dedicate a month.
