There is a cancer in the Church, and it has been allowed to grow unabated for decades. In 2008, Fr. Geoffrey Farrow, pastor of St. Paul’s Newman Center in Fresno, California, was suspended when he publicly spoke in favor of “gay marriage” in the state, and he subsequently admitted to being a homosexual himself (Source). In 2014, Fr. Bill Dickinson, who had been a priest for 25 years, came out as homosexual and left the Church, and he has since stated that 10-60% of Catholic priests are homosexuals (Source). In 2015, Fr. Warren Hall, an open homosexual, was removed from the campus ministry at Seton Hall University over pro-gay activities, but he was simply reassigned to Saints Peter and Paul Church in Hoboken, New Jersey (Source). Within a few months, however, Hall was stripped of those duties as well due to continued LGBT advocacy (Source). In 2015, Msgr. Krzysztof Charamsa (seen above)—secretary of the International Theological Commission of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith [Inquisition] and professor of theology at pontifical universities—announced that he was a homosexual in an active relationship (Source). In response to his subsequent dismissal, Charamsa accused Francis of hypocrisy because the priesthood is “full of homosexuals” (Source). Msgr. Charamsa would prove to be just the tip of the iceberg in the Inquisition, however, as Msgr. Luigi Capozzi was recently arrested while hosting a cocaine-fueled gay orgy in the Palace of the Holy Office [of the Inquisition] (Source). Capozzi is the secretary to Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, one of Francis’s closest advisers, and the Monsignor has actually been put forth for elevation to bishop by his superior (Source).

This cancer is also certainly not limited to those who have either “come out” of their own accord or were caught in the midst of gay orgies. For example, Martin Currie, Archbishop of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, has said that the Church must “find a way to avoid alienating same sex couples” and should “find some accommodation where [same-sex] unions are accepted and respected” (Source). John Stowe, a Conventual Franciscan and Bishop of Lexington, Kentucky, has actually attended the annual symposium of the heretical pro-gay New Ways Ministry where he said that the Church “has always opposed discrimination of any sort” and “that human flourishing is a primary goal” (Source). Fr. James Martin, a Jesuit and appointee of Francis to the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communications, has said that some Catholic saints “were probably gay” (Source), and he has also said, “That’s the way God created [homosexuals]. I think almost every psychologist and biologist and scientist would agree on that; and certainly LGBT people will tell you that’s the way they always felt – that they had been created that way” (Source). Martin has also sympathetically cited various estimates of gay clergy in the United States that “range from 23 percent to 58 percent, with even higher percentages for younger priests,” stating that “the church needs to consider both the challenges and the gifts offered by this group” (Source). Regarding the existence of homosexuals in the priesthood, even Francis has asked, “If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” (Source)

It must be said that this is not simply an issue of homosexual acts being sinful, which they are. Nor is it just the natural conflict of interest between the religious duty of clerics and their personal desires to normalize homosexuality. While such a conflict of interest is certainly harmful, the cancer runs much, much deeper and darker. Consider that, from 1950-2002, some 81% of the victims of clerical molestation cases were male and 77% were actually pubescent, between the ages of 11-17, at the first instance of abuse (Source, 69-70). This is important as pedophilia is defined as a sexual attraction to prepubescent children, aged 10 or below. In other words, despite all of the claims of “pedophile priests” in popular culture, the reality is that the vast majority of those committing the abuse were simply homosexuals, not actual pedophiles, who abused their positions to take advantage of pubescent minors. Indeed, more than half of the victims of abuse were already teenagers when they were first abused, and 27% of them were aged 15-17. Such cases are better defined as homosexual rape rather than child molestation, and one must naturally connect the dots between those crimes tainting Holy Mother Church and the priesthood being permeated with gays. In light of Msgrs. Charamsa and Capozzi, one must also wonder if the hierarchy worked so hard to cover up such cases and to shield the homosexuals because the foxes are guarding the proverbial hen house. After all, it is the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, where both men worked, that reviews appeals in cases involving sexual abuse (Source). Rather than inquisitors hunting down heretics, do we instead have homosexuals covering for what they see as their fellow homosexuals simply engaging in consensual pederastic relationships with young lovers?

This is yet another example of what faces Catholic traditionalists today. Holy Mother Church is infested with vipers, but most Catholics cannot even bring themselves to agree with sedevantists and sedeprivationists who openly condemn the current hierarchy. Instead, most Catholics are actually being led astray into believing that homosexuality is normal, natural, and a trait bestowed by God. When you attend Mass and tithe each week, to what exactly are you lending your support? A cleansing fire is needed to save the faith, but how many Catholics are, wittingly or not, instead providing material support to the Enemy? It is no coincidence that the Church is mired in liberalism and heresy. It is no coincidence that it is hardly shocking anymore to see a priest on national television espousing sin as a lifestyle. This is not a war being fought with conventional battle lines, between Catholics and “Other.” The enemy is already inside of our camp wearing our uniforms and wielding our weapons against us. The only question is whether the remaining faithful soldiers will wake up in time or be slaughtered in their sleep by foes they have not only embraced but fed and clothed as well.
