"A gay subculture in the USCCB? Say it ain't so!"

Our undercover corresponded in an Atlantic seaboard city which knows how to keep its secrets, Guy Noir, Private Eye, wired us the following article by Matt Abbot, with this comment: "Um, no agendas here ... The actual scenario as a simple, quiet manifestation speaks volumes. Meanwhile the new and very earnest Pope appoints to high power a man that has a scandalous gay past and says, 'Who am I too judge?' More social programs, please. Also some gospel verbiage, so we're not a mere GHO."

Emmmm, well, he must have been having a bad day; but here's the relevant content of the wire:

Referencing an article entitled, "USCCB youth refugee materials updated to address gay, transgendered youth" (Catholic World News, October 29, 2013), Matt C. Abbott just posted an article entitled, "A gay subculture in the USCCB? Say it ain't so!" (Renew America, November 3, 2013). Excerpts:
Although the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is indeed opposed to same-sex "marriage" – thank God – the following news item is troubling.

According to Catholic World News,
Bridging Refugee Youth and Children's Services (BRYCS), a project of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Migration and Refugee Services, has updated and expanded its training to workers in federally-funded refugee resettlement programs, in part to 'address the needs of particularly vulnerable groups of children, including youth who may be gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered'....

The revised Tier One Training Manual – copyrighted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and published with the assistance of a Department of Health and Human Services grant – notes that 'it is important to be alert for homophobic remarks among the staff. If any are made, discuss in a non-judgmental way how these kinds of remarks may make a young gay resident feel.'

'Exploring Complexities' – the new Tier Two Training Manual, also copyrighted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and published with the assistance of a Department of Health and Human Services grant – presents a scenario in which two male minors are 'rubbing each other with their feet on the other's genital areas.'
The training advises:

After allowing the staff to discuss this, you can suggest that the young men should learn not to engage in sexual contact in the residence, and they should develop a stronger sense of sexual boundaries – to keep sexual activities private, even after leaving the residence...

The BRYCS manual makes no reference to moral law or the practice of virtue....

Father Richard Perozich, a priest of the Diocese of San Diego, wrote:
It appears that a practicing or promoting homosexual subculture may be active in the bureaucracy of this USCCB committee. It needs to be weeded out before a Catholic agency can help in a resettlement process. Youth with [same-sex attraction] need to be guided to the truth of sexuality as man or woman and not be harassed with labeling as LGBTQ.

If an agency cannot promote the Catholic truth, then the Catholic agency is not ready to assist in resettlement work. No one should ever abuse any human being by calling them gay, lesbian, transgendered, or bisexual, whether in false affirmation or in derision. Perhaps the committee will be faithful to Jesus and work with these people even if it is at odds with the perverse government standards.

Little has changed since 2002 when our Bishops were caught with their pants down sodomising adolescent males and destroying the Church in the process.

They are still succoring the sodomisers and trying to placate the sodomotic culture and Dr. E. Michael Jones had them pinned down on this more'n a decade ago:

Even if Weakland repented and reformed, we are still dealing with a man who has a fundamentally disordered view of the world. Anyone who thinks that a blackmailer loves him has lost contact with reality. If Weakland had led a chaste life from there on in, he could have been a successful cocktail bar pianist or hairdresser, but he was, simply because of that disordered inclination alone and not because he had acted on it, not qualified to be a priest and certainly not qualified to be a bishop whose vision was crucial to guiding the archdiocese through critical times. Homosexual orientation alone is an impediment to the priesthood. It is in itself a disorder which disqualifies, just as lacking fingers or being prone to epileptic fits disqualifies. This is not to say that people who have these inclinations and resist them are bad people, only that people with those inclinations are not qualified to be priests. According to "Careful Selection and Training of Candidates for the State of Perfection and Sacred Orders," (The Canon Law Digest, Vol 4, pp 468-72 Officially published documents affecting the Code of Canon Law 1958-62, Volume V, The Bruce Publishing Company, Milwaukee 1963),
Advancement to religious vows and ordination should be barred to those who are afflicted with evil tendencies to homosexuality or pederasty, since for them the common life and the priestly ministry would constitute serious dangers.
The task before the bishops is clear. They have to stop the sexual infiltration of the Catholic Church.....A good place to start might be an analysis of the episcopate of Rembert Weakland. Rembert Weakland's career as a homosexual subversive within the Catholic church in the wake of Vatican II brings up a broader issue: to what extent was the implementation of Vatican II a homosexual fantasy?


It was not too long ago that we had as President and Vice President of the USCCB, Bishops who had actively engaged in ordaining known predatory perverts and then protected them once these goats had been found-out seducing and sodomised innocent young adolescent males.

Who did the Bishops rush to protect, the victims or the perverted predatory perps?


Scratch a Liberal Liturgist, reveal a sodomite.

There are reasons why the AmBishops are collectively a disgrace and their queer refusal to stand-up to the sodomites is one major reason we are in such ghastly shape.

Michael Voris gave an excellent talk at the Catholic Identity Conference this past September. He spoke on how the LGBT gained acceptance in the general culture at-large and how they are working towards the same thing in the Catholic Church. It was a well-researched talk, reviewing events from the past 100 years(!)... It was quite depressing, actually, but knowledge is a good thing, yes?

By the way, did you know that Abp Clark was Cdl Dolan's spiritual director when Dolan was in the seminary? That explains a lot...
