Famous actor Kevin Spacey has been taken down by, basically, one man. His snowball was enough to cause a landslide, and the man was gone. Several other cases started in the same way, with *one* credible accuser.
This is why your humble correspondent wonders how long it will be until the same happen for the one or other – or for several – of our more or less prominent and very vocal clergymen heavily, and I mean heavily, suspected of homosexuality and practiced sodomy.
Father Martin, Father Rosica, and Archbishop Paglia immediately come to mind, but there sure are many others and I do not think people like Cardinals Coccopalmerio, Schoenborn, or Woelki above suspicion in any way. How many are working in the shadows only God knows.
It is time for a #himtoo movement, where former seminarian colleagues of, or people in any way associated with, these not so gentle men dare to defy the wall of intimidation they obviously try to erect around themselves, and expose not episodes of heretical preaching and behaviour (which are richly documented for countless priests and prelates), but single episodes of homosexual behaviour without regard for the offender being a priest, a Monsignor, a Bishop, a Cardinal or, as it is perfectly legitimate to suspect, the Pope himself.
We need courageous priests to get rid of at least the worst of this filth.
I understand it is not easy, but souls are at stake.
Father Martin truly does not want to stop. Like a girl whose sister has just stolen her best handbag, our indefatigable Father Liberace truly loses it.
Let us correct some of the rubbish the man spouts.
1. No, there is no “spectrum” in term of sexuality, as his clearly homosexual friends have told him. People can be more or less masculine, more or less feminine, but in the end they are either normal people or perverts. Tertium non datur. This is not only obvious to any sane person, but is, crucially, what the Church has always taught. There is no “spectrum” in Saint Paul, you damn girl. “Complicated sexuality” means “faggotry”.
2. The man (because he still has a Pimmel) stoops so low as to use the old, abused excuse employed by every homosexual on the planet: if my perversion disgusts you, you must be a latent homosexual yourself. Strangely, they never use the non-argument with paedophilia. However, if they use the argument with others concerning homosexuality they must accept that others use it with them concerning paedophilia.
The question is therefore: does paedophilia disgust Father Martin?
If not, he has obvious, open pedophile tendencies of his own admission.
If yes, he has obvious, latent pedophile tendencies of his own admission.
And please let us stop taking such stupid arguments as if they were worth one dog shit. Leave them to homo psychologists, and ask everyone who tries to use this rubbish with you, very straight, if he is disgusted of paedophilia (or incest, or bestiality; if you are talking to Francis you may throw in coprophagia as he appears to be quite the expert). See what face he makes. Be hard. Don't walk back.
The rest of the article is also rubbish, but there is a moment of involuntary comedy when he states he does not want to change church doctrine, and the evidence would be that a Jesuit approved his book.
Comedy gold. You couldn't make it up.
This man should be defrocked and, I think, one day he will be unless he dies or commits suicide beforehand. Too much he has (literally) exposed himself. He is like Saint-Just, one of those revolutionaries who don't get that they may get to ride a dangerous tiger for a while, but will be in the shooting list as soon as their own kind of revolution goes out of fashion.
Enjoy your moment of notoriety, Father Liberace.
At some point, your arrogance will catch up with you.
Possibly whilst you are still alive.
