Billy Goat and Gardener: Pedophile Friend as Lecturer at Pontifical Center for Child Protection

Patrick Degrieck as Lecturer for the Pontifical Center for Child Protection has spoken
on the topic of "Secondary Victims" in child sexual abuse.

By Ferdinand Boischot

In the last 50 years, the Catholic Church has been devastated by a huge wave of pedophile and ephebophilic abuse by Church employees and dignitaries.

For a long time, and very intensely, incredible abominations have been committed, which are in total contrast to the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Particularly deplorable is the embedding of the perpetrators into large networks and the protection of the perpetrators by obstruction on many levels of the Church hierarchy.

As early as 1995, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, then under the leadership of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, had been very courageous and persistently prosecuted these atrocities and called for punishment.

After his election to the Papacy, Benedict XVI.  was not infrequently sabotaged in this line by well-known bishops, cardinals, and bishops' conferences.

Under Pope Francis, dealing with the problem of pedophile offenders in the Church has fundamentally changed:

-Few and resolute statements, on the one hand, and a very different approach to pedophile offenders, where Pope Francis, apparently, personally chooses to employ perpetrators in pastoral situations (Don Mercedes case), and intervenes with the personnel of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. He intervenes in such cases, if sympathetic shepherds are being prosecuted.

In December 2014, the CCP (Center for Child Protection) was established on the personal initiative of Pope Francis at the Pontifical University of the Gregoriana to study this problem. The director was the Austrian Jesuit and psychologist Hans Zollner SJ.

On March 9, 2017 the Gregoriana reported on two lectures held a few days earlier by Prof. Karlijn Demasure from the University of Louvain and F (ather) Patrick Degrieck from the Diocese of Bruges and a member of the Belgian Research Commission Bishops.

Belgium, and particularly the Flemish North, suffered particularly severely from pedophile atrocities.

The so-called "Catholic" University of Leuven has not done anything for decades, but has supported the pedophile-tolerating line of Cardinal Danneels (until 2010 Archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels), produced totally dissipated catechesis and religious studies books, and a broad and loud campaign against Pope Benedict XVI. And Archbishop Monsignor Léonard (the successor of Danneels, was appointed by Benedict XVI).

In the end of 2014, the Religious Science Department stupidly had a lot of sermons and statements from the pedophile bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, on their website, Thomas (which was still present more than four and a half years after his unmasking).

With the priest Patrick Degrieck, a noted pedophile friend and supporter has managed to speak before a large public at the Child Protection Center CCP.

Patrick Degrieck and  Tom Flavez

On October 27, 2014, the Kerknet site, which belongs to the bishops of north Belgium, reported that the then Bishop of Bruges, Jozef De Kesel, assigned Tom Flavez as a pastor in the West Flemish coastal community of Middelkerke.

Immediately a tremendous turmoil ensued. The population protested massively, the (liberal) mayoress and the council unleashed the storm and the restaurant and hotel sector and went to the barricades: it was apparent that T.F. was a convicted pedophile.

However, Bishop De Kesel remained stubborn. He said that "... everyone deserves a second chance ... He [De Kesel] made this decision after careful consideration and with the support of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. The bishop will not change his decision." The latter is extremely rare for the otherwise not very brave De Kesel).

Within 48 hours it was discovered that T.F. had repeatedly relapsed. Despite all the conditions, he had always had dealings with children, liked to be photographed and posed everywhere in churches' websites.

On the 31st of October, in the morning, Kerknet was informed that "... the bishop (De Kesel) has to withdraw the applicant from nomination."

Vangheluwe's shadow

In the following weeks, the bomb detonated of a number of uncovered pedophile rapists in the Diocese of Bruges. The bishops De Kesel and Bonny (Antwerp) were summoned before Parliament and "grilled".

It soon became apparent that both Tom Flavez and Patrick Degrieck had been ordained priests by the pedophile Bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, and knew this very well. Tom Flavez was the only one tohelp Vangheluwe move from the episcopal palace in Bruges in 2010. According to reliable testimonies, Flavez and Degrieck never missed his birthday without a visit and a small present.

Patrick Degrieck studied 1986-1989 theology and canon law in the University of Leuven. From 1989 to 1997 he was a priest-teacher at H. Hartcollege in Waregem (which was also A school affected by abuse). Since then he has been a Church jurist in Bruges (now also in Antwerp with Bishop Bonny) and professor of Holy Scripture at the priestly seminary in Bruges.

Degrieck was very practical and clever as a church jurist in 2013-2014, responsible for the case of his pedophile friend T.F., apparently supplying incomplete documents to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in order to get a favorable assessment.

The fact that Bishop De Kesel tried to unload his own serious mistakes on the back of Cardinal Prefect Gerhard Müller made the case even more shabby.

As a result, Tom Flavez had to vacate his apartment in the Ordinariat and continued "with an unknown occupation." He was caught up by his old comrade Patrick Degrieck in the convent of Our Lady of Sorrows in Ruiselede, not far from Bruges, where Degrieck (not laughing) became a "spiritual director."

Patrick Degriek in the CCP
Degrieck's "Awareness Training"

Degrieck, incidentally, was in the immediate phase after the break-up of the Vangheluwe affair and the (hesitant)investigator of the sex scandal of the Church jurist and the bishops' expert in the inner-Church "Andriessen's Investigation Commission."

In November 2010 an interview with Degrieck, deeply disturbing by the oily tone and the hypocritical content, was published in the magazine Het Teken, 83rd edition, no.5 (Nov. 2010) - notabene interviewed by Doenja van Belleghem, then director of a "Roger Vangheluwe support group".

The many crimes, deceptions and cover-ups, embedded in a pedophile, ephebo, and homophilic swamp of the local clergy, were extensively documented and analyzed at (keyword: Crisis in de Kerk ... hoezo?).

The press reported in part very thoroughly.

De Kesel, Flavez and Degrieck were badly burned.

Patrick Degrieck at the CCP

Bishop De Kesel's position in Bruges had become untenable. Not more than a year later he was called to take over the Archdiocese of Mechelen-Brussels.

It took a very long time for a new bishop to be appointed, by the way, from East Flanders (Ghent), which is not involved in the West Flemish problems.

Pope Francis, known for his personal preferences, appointed Jozef De Kesel as Archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels in spite of all the mistakes and concealments, and made him a cardinal (which he denied to the dedicated advocate for the right to life and to combat abuse in the Church, Bishop Léonard).

Billy Goat and Gardner

Since the end of 2014 Degrieck has hardly been able to do anything in Belgium.

To this end, he gave a lecture in Rome in 2017 before the Pontifical Center for the Protection of Children, and the topic "Secondary Victims".

He is a well-known specialist in the field of cover-up and embodiment of these vile deeds, and as a highlight also of the victims' offenses: considering the perpetrators as "also victims" (sic Danneels), and probably their own impulses.

Psychiatrically this is well known: denial - displacement - sublimation by association with the victims - absorption.

The perpetrators themselves give themselves absolution.

Widely and well known. Zero Consequences.

And now also with access to the highest channels of the Church in Rome.

Authoress of the Pope's Stations of the Cross Meditations Was a Participant of the "Illuminiati" - Meeting of 2015

Via Crucis at Colosseum. The meditations for 2017 come from
Anne-Marie Pelletier

(Rome) This year's Good Friday meditations at the Pope's Stations of the Cross, which traditionally take place at the Coliseum in Rome, are by the French theologian Anne-Marie Pelletier. The well-known alumna of the Institut Européen des Sciences des Religions (IESR) in Paris is not an unknown person.

Ratzinger Prize Winner 2014

A larger circle was announced in 2014, when the Joseph Ratzinger Prize was awarded. The prize has been awarded since 2011 by the Vatican Foundation Joseph Ratzinger - Benedict XVI. "For special scientific-theological services in the context of contemporary discourse." The foundation was established in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI. In the first two years, Benedict XVI personally awarded the prize. He also renounced his participation. According to the foundation, the prize is awarded by a board of trustees, but "in consultation" with Benedict.

Anne-Marie Pelletier was the first woman to receive the Ratzinger Prize. She was particularly honored for her studies on "Woman in Christianity". Cardinal Müller, who presented the award in 2014, spoke of an "outstanding figure of today's French Catholicism." In addition to the IESR, Pelletier also teaches at other academic institutions, including the Jewish Institute Universitaire Elie Wiesel. She is a member of the French Association for Bible Studies (ACFEB) and a member of the Institut Lustiger.

In May 2015 she appeared in the list of some 50 participants in a secret meeting, which took place on the day of Pentecost at the Pontifical University of the Gregorian in Rome (see The Church's "Illuminati" - List of Catholic Secret Members). The list reads as Who is Who the Kasperians. The secret meeting was to prepare strategies to bring about a coup in the October (upcoming) bishop's synod on the family. The objectives were: to admit married couples and homosexuals to the sacraments. In summary, the "Pastoral Innovation", as the Vaticanist Edward Pentin wrote from the National Catholic Register, was the goal.

Cardinal Marx, Archbishop Pontier, Bishop Büchel, were invited

Three presidents of European bishops' conferences were invited to the meeting. The most important among them was Cardinal Reinhard Marx, President of the German Bishops' Conference and Archbishop of Munich-Freising, on the side of which the DBK General Secretary, Jesuit Hans Langendörfer, was present. The other guests were Archbishop Georges Pontier, President of the French Episcopal Conference and Archbishop of Marseille, and Markus Büchel, President of the Swiss Episcopal Conference and Bishop of Sankt Gallen.

Anne-Marie Pelletier

The latter was not without piquancy, since St. Gallen in 1996 was the meeting point of the subversive, inner-Church secret circle, which named itself after the city. The secular group founded by Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini (then archbishop of Milan) had its predecessor, Bishop Ivo Fürer, but the success of this tradition was continued by Markus Büchel. The invitation was of course only informal, because officially it was only a private meeting behind closed doors.

The invitation by the two presidents of the Bishops' Conferences of Germany and France reveal the "Rhenish Alliance," which was of considerable importance for the Second Vatican Council.

The list of participants reveals planning with military precision: not only Church representatives and theologians met. Among the invited guests were selected representatives of leading media such as ZDF, ARD, FAZ, NZZ and, of course, La Repubblica, the daily newspaper of Eugenio Scalfari - according to Pope Franziskus, the "only" newspaper he regularly reads. Pentin then pointed to Pelletier's view that the Church needed "a dynamic of mutual listening" by guiding Magisterium's conscience "and echoing of what the baptized say."

As Pentin reported, Pelletier also argued that the bishop's synod was "condemned to failure" when "simply reaffirming what the Church has always taught." A definite conception of the party. It is now a particularly rare honor for Pope Francis.

The Prime Minister of Luxembourg is Received in Vatican With "Husband"

[Adalante Te Fe] On March 24, a meeting of Pope Francis held a celebration with 27 leaders of the world on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, in which this "curious" shot  of Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, a well-known pro-sodomy activist, along with his "husband", was taken.

Attentive to this least "strange" event in the Vatican itself, is the leftist Secretary General of Podemos, Pablo Iglesias who has been quick to point it out with a complain about how Cardinal Cañizares is supposed to hate sodomites:

Benedictine Monastery Hosts "Drag Show"

Edit:  we've heard of Benedictine hospitality, but is that extended to the Devil? Given the atmosphere of decadence, malignancy and outright evil, isn't it just possible that Collegeville wouldn't be this open about its depravity? This monastery and school were caught before for attempting to host a naked retreat. The naked retreat was cancelled.

Now a student organization funded by the school is promoting a "drag show". From the school funded website:

By Meredith Jarchow – mgjarchow@csbsju.eduTalented performers, dramatic makeup and high heels will ensure that this Friday isn’t a drag. 
For several years CSB/SJU People Representing the Sexual Minority (PRiSM) has hosted an annual drag show at CSB/SJU. This year’s show will take place on Friday, with the theme “Life is a Drag” which will include student performers as well as professionals. 
This year, the drag show was preceded by a few different events including a drag makeup tutorial and Ally training with the Institute of Women’s Leadership to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ women for Women’s History Month. 
“During this month, oftentimes [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning] (LGBTQ+) women are forgotten or aren’t part of the conversation,”

PRiSM co-president Anna Peichel said via email. “We wanted to just provide information about how to be allies and create safe spaces for LGBTQ+ women and LGBTQ+ folks in general.” 
The PRiSM drag show provides students with an opportunity to try drag in their own style and perform for an audience. 
“Doing drag is really dependent on the person, one person might create a long routine and another might want more crowd interaction,” Peichel said. “We really let the students do whatever they are most comfortable with.”
For CSB senior Paige Maki, this year will be her second performance in the PRiSM drag show. 
“I enjoy truly becoming my persona as Danny Deeper, and being able to dance in a ridiculous fashion but not feel any shame or embarrassment for it,” Maki said via email. “I also love the audience that comes because they are all so encouraging and don’t care if you mess up or aren’t the best performer.” 
In addition to the performances, the drag show will also provide the audience with a 21+ area that includes a cash bar. PRiSM hopes to create a welcoming atmosphere for all audience members, according to Peichel. 
“Drag queens and kings are amazing and great at their jobs, they shouldn’t make you feel uncomfortable in any way,” Peichel said. “They are usually very funny and put on very humorous performances. Be ready to laugh, cheer and have dollar bills ready for your favorite performers.” 
While this is not an experience many students on campus may have ever had, Maki and Peichel hope that those who have never attended a drag show to learn more about it this Friday. 
Maki says this event is important to the CSB/SJU community “to become more open minded, meet us, see that we are here and we aren’t that different from anyone else,” Maki said. “This event raises awareness about a community that not many people know about, and it shows that anyone can do anything they put their mind to.”
The biggest misconception about drag shows? The makeup, according to Maki.
“The makeup isn’t as easy as many would think for both drag queens and drag kings,” Maki said. 
There is no cost to attend the drag show, which will begin at 8 p.m. on Friday in Gorecki 204.

Munich Priest Speaks of the "Natural Disobedience" of the Priest

Controversial Munich priest Schießler praises the DBK statement "free decision of conscience" for the remarried divorced and now calls for the "blessing of homosexual people", Catholic-Evangelical liturgy and abolition of priestly celibacy

Munich ( The German bishops have written "a word for renewed marriage and family pastoral in the light of Amoris Laetitia,"  the "individual, personal and free conscience of the person concerned" ... "finally!" Praised the Munich priest Rainer Maria Schießler in a guest commentary in the "Zeit" - entitled  "Christ & Welt". Then he went on to explain that the Church was "far from the end of this path." It is important to see, to formulate and to put into practice "many things: the blessing of homosexual people who simply have to realize that they are not capable of a heterosexual partnership; The communion with our evangelical sisters and brothers, because it is not about equality, but about the unity that we already possess in Christ; Or the free choice of life for all those who also aspire to the higher, that is, the priestly ministry, in the Church, because the priestly proclamation of the gospel can also be entrusted with good faith, even in people who live in a loving relationship."

In addition, Schießler warned "of a verbal disarmament in the tone". This was addressed to those whom he described as "the ultra-conservatives in our Church." Supposedly, they would speak of the "Communion of adultery." But those who were "concerned with statements of a Communion of adultery or other conceptions" would not "just injure men," but "inflict a considerable harm on the Eucharist". For "the Eucharist community of Jesus of Nazareth is not a body of perfects, as we would like to see. They are the unsaved, the broken, who have just been given a new (higher) life perspective through the communion with Christ."

At last, Schießler wrote in "Christus & Welt", "this ruthless rejection of the seeker is no longer valid," "finally the individual believer decides, in his own personal freedom, what he is called to." According to Schießler  "the former reward and punishment mentality on this subject" had nothing to do with the Church of a Jesus of Nazareth, who deliberately sought the failed and the stranded."

Schießler is incardinated in the Archdiocese of Munich as a pastor, TV personality and author of the bestseller "Himmel - Herrgott - Sakrament: auftreten statt austreten. [Heaven - Lord God - Sacrament: encounter instead of leaving.] He openly acknowledgesy "Gunda", who has been at his side for 20 years. According to his self-understanding, he does not violate his promise of celibacy, because "the sexual act is definitely excluded", but "tenderness" is "important", has reported. In other respects, too, he tends to be a media-active celebrity. For example, he had aroused anger when, in the summer of 2011, he built a beer table in front of the altar steps of his church and demonstratively enjoyed a liter of beer during an interview with "Munich.TV" (photo above), has reported. He once even expressed the wish to make a restaurant with a beer garden from a side chapel of St. Maximilian.

Crashed Ice: Minnesota Archbishop Continues Sacrilegious Use of Cathedral

Lord Have Mercy!

Edit: this year Crashed Ice, featured by same-sex promoting Red Bull, is back again. The venue isn't AS appealing and sacrilegious, but it is. For those of you who don't know, "Crashed Ice" involves the Archbishop's prostituting of the Cathedral for a winter sporting event where eager competitors careen down a ramp that leads from the top of the St. Paul Cathedral steps down the hill and into downtown Saint Paul for amazing cash prizes and the adulation of thousands of fans on TV and live.

We understand that the powers and principalities who rule this Archdiocese have to take care of paying large salaries to diocesan pay staff, despite the huge subsidies they receive for being a warden of the welfare state, cush retirments, trips to Thailand, and other things like that, but is it really worth it when there is serious damage to the Catholic brand by appealing to satanic corporations and vulgar sports fans, that actually work against the  primary Catholic message?  How many people are actually persuaded by these boondoggles, we wonder?

Last year we made a big deal about this and generated some sissies on the blog commenting who made mostly pointless objections and idle threats to our concerns. Catholic education has always been very poor in Minnesota, and it only shows, that when a lot of these concerned citizens chime in, they have nothing but emotions and half-baked sentiments with which to reply.

This year the ramp has been moved further down from the cathedral door, which now you can see, but the ramp comes down from the top of the steps. It's like they realized how crappy it looked last year and made some adjustments.  Also, the crowd is only projected at 100,000, which is down 20 from last year's estimated 120,000.

At any rate, this is still an appalling bad show on the part of the stewards of our Catholic Faith in this Archdiocese.  Some of the readers will ask, "are you surprised?" No, not after witnessing years and years of their negligence and neglect.  What would be shocking is if there were ever an orthodox clergy, with an orthodox Archbishop. Have we ever had one?

We'll conclude this discussion with:

Can. 1210 In a sacred place only those things are to be permitted which serve to exercise or promote worship, piety and religion. Anything out of harmony with the holiness of the place is forbidden. The Ordinary may however, for individual cases, permit other uses, provided they are not contrary to the sacred character of the place.

First "Gay Marriage" of a Catholic Priest -- "30 Years of Activism for 'Gay Rights'"

Bernard Lynch, Catholic Priest, "Married" his "Long-term boyfriend"
(Dublin) In Ireland the first Catholic priest entered an "aberrosexual marriage". Bernárd Lynch from the Irish County of Clare is a Catholic priest. Since 1986 he has been an avowed aberrosexual. He also became the first priest to have an "aberrosexual marriage".
Lynch, 67 years old, "married" his aberrosexual "life partner" Billy Desmond, with whom the priest has lived in a registered partnership since 2006 - even then as primary. As the newspaper Irish Daily Mail reported on 28 January, 120 guests took part at the civil "marriage." They congratulated the two with prolonged applause on their "aberrosexual marriage", when the clerk declared the two men "husband and husband".
In 2015 the Irish had approved the equality of "aberrosexual marriage" in a national plebiscite. Five months later, the decision was legally implemented.
During the festive celebration of Lynch and Desmond, a text was read to praise the "30-year commitment" of the Catholic priest for the "recognition of the rights of LGBTI persons". "It was a wonderful ceremony," reported the Irish Sun .
Lynch went to the seminary and maintained a long-term sexual relationship with another seminarist. This seminarist then left the seminary, married and established a family. Lnych, on the other hand, was ordained a priest in 1971. He belongs to a missionary order, but has been committed to homosexuality since the 80s in the USA. In 2010, he was one of the speakers at a rally against Pope Benedict XVI, when he visited England. He accuses the Church of hypocrisy. Deafness and celibacy were to blame for everything, for it was also responsible for pedophilia. In 2012, he told media that he knew that the Vatican was "going" against him, as his order clearly closed both eyes.
With the resignation of Benedict XVI. the Vatican "investigations" seem to have subsided.

Deviant Dating Show -- Surely Ireland is Lost?

Edit: how is this filth tolerated?  These people should be ashamed of broadcasting their shameful behavior publicly. Correct me if I'm wrong, but even in the USA, a deviant dating show wouldn't fare well.  The comments don't criticize the vice, but encourage it! In fact, people aren't calling up to complain about rampant immorality, or the man leaving his wife, but to complain how he treated one of the contestants.  No wonder Ireland is the only country in the world that approved of deviance in a national referendum!

Pederasty is the next thing. Just you wait.

One of the stars of last week's First Dates Ireland has been forced to defend his "horrible" date after fans of the show criticised him online.

Richard McNeil has defended his date Timmie Murphy after fans of the show slated him for the way he rejected Richard.
Both men had seemingly enjoyed a pleasant first date, despite the fact that Timmie said things like: "When people look at me they think they see an alpha male but what I actually am is a princess.”

Female "Pastor" Smashes Marian Statue in Brazil to Pieces -- Brazilian Catholics Outraged

Edit: in the US, Catholics probabaly would have bleated ineffectually about freedom
of speech and done nothing.

(Rio de Janeiro) The "pastoress" of a Protestant congregation smashed a statue of Our Lady of Aparecida. The scene was filmed and released to the public. The great indignation caused by this caused the woman apologize in a video for her deed.

The incident occurred in the hinterland of the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo. In Botucatu, a Protestant female pastor of a local congregation performed a memorial service for Our Lady of Aparecida, Brazil's most important pilgrimage destination, in a meadow, and beat her with a hammer. The hammer attack left the Marian statue  in pieces. Brazilian media talked about it as the act of frenzy and even obsession. The fact is that in certain parts of Protestant free churches, they are strongly influenced by Calvinism, where there is a radical dislike for Mary and the worship of the Mother of God. The sectarian attitude must be repelent to all members of the Catholic and Orthodox Church.

The devotees of the "pastoress" cshouted "Hallelujah" during the destruction, praised Jesus and spoke of a "purification".

The destruction scene was filmed and the video released. The indignation was so great that the "pastoress" was compelled to publicly apologize for her misdeed.

2017 marks the 300th anniversary of Aparecida's Matian apparition. On 24th of July, Pope Francis visited the pilgrimage site in the State of Sao Paulo. At that time, the police uncovered a bomb. It was a professionally produced explosive set with deadly intent. Whoever  had set the bomb could not be found out. In the run-up, left-extreme and aberrosexual organizations had protested against the papal visit. Francis had traveled to Brazil for World Youth Day.

Scottish Priest is Being Dismissed from Clerical State Because of Book Critical of Sodomites in the Catholic Church

Update: just for the sake of people who've raised questions about the title we'd like to clarify.  Without consulting the canon law, and not having any real accreditation in it, we understand that it's necessary for a suspended priest to submit himself for laicization of his own free will.  We know of cases where clergy have refused to submit to it, but they are effectively inactive.  In any case, he's been thrown out of his parish into the street and can't act as a priest.   So, as far as we know, he hasn't been laicized yet, but regardless, whether he submits himself for it or not, he's not going to get a parish in this diocese, or legitimately offer Mass probably anywhere in the Church unless it's in private that he does so.  At this point, we're just wondering if Father has been offered a stipend, or the opportunity to live in a monastery someplace, as sometimes happens.  Naturally, we hope this courageous priest finds another diocese with a sympathetic bishop, or joins the Society of Saint Pius X. We hope he finds some way to continue through this.

Does the Saint Benedict Center still need a priest?

Edit: in tomorrow's news, Bishop rewrites bible so as not to offend victim classes. Who cares if some people were offended. Are the claims true or not? Does anyone have a copy of this book?  Never mind, here it is...

Father Matthew Despard had already been suspended in 2013 because of his book. After unsuccessfully appealing it, he must now leave his parish. The book was removed again from the market after complaints.

Blantyre ( Father Matthew Despard, priest of the parish of St. John Ogilvie in Blantyre (Scotland) must leave his parish on instructions from the competent bishop. Despard was suspended in 2013 after publishing a book on the great influence of aberrosexuals in the Church of Scotland.

Joseph Toal, the bishop of the Motherwell diocese, has justified Despard's suspension by insisting that his book damaged the reputation of a whole range of persons, both laymen and clerics. Despard has challenged the suspension, albeit unsuccessfully. While his proceedings were ongoing, he remained in the parish. After all the possibilities of appeal had been exhausted, Bishop Toal has now instructed him to leave the parish.

In his book "Priesthood in Crisis," Despard claimed that a powerful gay mafia exerted great influence in the Catholic Church in Scotland. The book appeared shortly after the resignation of Keith Cardinal O'Brien, the Archbishop of Edinburgh. O'Brien had been forced to resign because of allegedly sexually molesting priestly candidates. Despard's book had  been withdrawn from the market after some of the persons named in the book had threatened with complaints.

Papal Appointee Says Sodomy Can be a "Gift From God"

Update: since this individual has been active for the last year without any consequences, who's really in charge of the Catholic Church?

Edit: more campaigning for moral depravity from the evil infestation within the Church. What will the reaction to this be in Rome? More approval, of course. Of course Radcliffe has been this bad for years.

ROME, May 19, 2015 ( -- Pope Francis has appointed radically liberal, pro-homosexual Dominican Father Timothy Radcliffe as a consultor for the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.
The Holy Father made the appointment on Saturday, according to Vatican Radio.
Father Radcliffe, an Englishman, author and speaker, was Master of the Dominican order from 1992 to 2001, and is an outspokenproponent of homosexuality.

Blessing of Aberrosexual Couple in Sicily -- The Church as "Social Centre"

Don Scordato Blesses Life Partners in Palermo
(Rome) What is true in Spain, is also possible in Italy. A priest of the Archdiocese of Palermo, where Pope Francis recently installed a "Bergoglian" as archbishop, "blessed" a lesbian couple. "I hope that the church will one day  bless gay unions," said the priest.
The Sicilian case is reminiscent of those in Castellón in Spain, where a priest "blessed" a lesbian couple in the Church. The priest then denied the blessing: He had "only" blessed the "love."  The two lesbians had however sent "wedding invitations."
The former Jesuit church of Palermo, which is dedicated to St. Francis Xavier, has long been "committed" to  the acceptance of aberrosexuality.

Don Cosimo Scordato, parish as a social center

Pastor Cosimo Scordato called two lesbians last Sunday before the start of the Mass on the altar, to announce their upcoming civil "marriage". The Italian parliament decided last February, referring to a judgment of the European Court of Human Rights, for the legalization of a de facto legal institution for aberrosexual liaisons.
Don Scordato congratulated the lesbian couple explained his decision and blessed it in the church. He called upon the church to "impartially receive and to pray for the couple," the two lesbians.
The incident not only drew attention all over Italy in the leftist media but was also part of a documentary about and for "gay marriage" in Italy.
The two women, Elisabetta Cina (49) and Serenella Fiasconaro (46) are not practicing Catholics. But both are active in the gay scene and are committed sociopolitically for the recognition of homosexuality. Both have appeared already in T-shirts with provocative inscriptions in public.
Critics accuse the pair and Don Scordato of putting on a subversive act with the aim of overthrowing the doctrine of the Catholic Church on aberrosexuality.
"The two women one day came to me and asked me to bless their wedding rings. The Church does not allow the sacrament of marriage for homosexual couples. I have invited them to come to Mass to introduce themselves to the community, because the Church has to accept all," said Don Scordato last Sunday before calling the lesbian couple to meet him at the altar. Then he called on the faithful, "to greet the two and their love with a round of applause."

Palermo's former Jesuit and parish church of St. Franz Xaver

A prompt, docile acquiescence prevailed among those present in the majority. "Don Scordato was fantastic," said the two lesbians. "His naturalness surprised us."
"My hope is that the Church will accept one day to bless homosexual relationships," said Don Scordato. At the same time he announced other gay couples in the same way and his desire to bless them. "Things are changing - slowly, but" said the church rector.
In 2011  Don Scordato had criticized Benedict XVI. publicly as "homophobic" and thus harvested the applause of gay organizations, "The gays have the right to love," said the diocesan priest, because "what matters is love."
From his parish, which he took over in 1986, he made a (left) Social Centre. It is "politically independent", but "not apolitical" about being "non-denominational" but "open to all". Don Scordato says of himself that he is "in love with liberation theology."

"Church Should Apologize to Homosexuals?" -- The Catholic Media Never Cites the Pope Correctly

Cathedral of Orleans "homosexualized": Bishop Blaquart on the 17th of
June lighted the Cathedral in LGBT colors, in or to express his "communion"
with the Homo-Community After the Orlando Attack

The homosexualization is progressing rapidly. Whoever does not shrilly sing along in homophilic choir,  arouses suspicion. Google Maps "pleases" users with a homo-correct street view man. And if the Pope explicitly specified, it means it won't be long before only the Catholic media will also follow him.

A commentary by Martha Burger Weinzl

Pope Francis was questioned on his return from Armenia by the journalist Cindy Wooden of CNS, the news agency of the American Episcopal last Sunday on homosexuality. She wanted to know what the Pope had to say on Cardinal Reinhard Marx's demand that the Church should apologize to the "gay community" because it has marginalized these people.

Orlando assassin was a "soldier of the Caliph" and not a Christian

Absurdly, Wooden added: "In the days after the massacre in Orlando many have said that the Christian community has something to do with the hatred of these people," even though the Orlando-attack on a gay club had been committed by a "soldier of the Caliph" one of the jihadists of the Islamic State (IS). As a journalist she also has long known that the US government had manipulated the confessional identity of Muslims to omit any reference emphasizing  Islam. It must therefore be assumed - if only as a diversionary tactic - that a false accusation of Christians was considered acceptable.

Pope Francis answered as precisely  as he did two years ago on the return flight from Rio de Janeiro, when he took a position on homosexuality for the first time. He stated that the position towards homosexuality and homosexuals is that of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and that homosexuals should be accompanied according to the Catechism. A clear statement. It is only clear for faithful Catholics who know the catechism reasonably well. However, the statement is hardly suitable for non-practicing sham Catholics  and certainly not for non-Catholics. The Pope again avoided explaining the Church's teaching on homosexuality and homosexuals. Another missed opportunity.

Homosexuality: Enlightenment would be necessary, but is not necessary

That's just how this this issue, where a strong lobby supported by numerous Zeitgeist Knights operates a general brainwashing, longs for enlightenment  (Salzburg Auxiliary Bishop Laun recently spoke about "brainwashed" Christians). It's a challenge that Pope Francis rather evades, knowing that he would thus forfeit some sympathy from the media. The pope prefers prefer to remain silent, and he provides the model for many bishops and priests who are silent. But who then proclaims the saving truth and warns of the deadly dangers of sin?

So homosexuals must manage on their own, and just as the Catholics and Christians must orient total on the merits. How many are geared wrong because they do not take the catechism, but the daily press on hand, or can be homosexualisieren own thinking of radio, television and the Internet, will remain an oppressive secret.

What good will the topic of homosexuality to misunderstanding, is to a preceding homo-correct representation or an open Homophilic propaganda showed the coverage of the Pope's statement on Sunday in the German language.

Pope Francis took on the flight back to numerous important questions raised. Among other things, he demanded nothing more and nothing less than a "new EU" and "more independence and more freedom" for the Member States. With a colleague I bet that the mass media, however, would take the issue of homosexuality as a headline, and so it was.

The headline read in slight variations: "Church should apologize to homosexuals". This is exactly what the Pope had not said.

"Church to apologize to homosexuals"? - No, because "the" Church "is holy"

The pope agreed to the "Marxist" Cardinal [Reinhard Marx], but stated that, "the" Church "is holy" but that Christians were "sinners." In other words, sin and guilt are always personal. If Christians had therefore been guilty, it's Christians who to apologize, but not "the Church".

The Pope carried out a considerable clarification and thus also corrected the influential [and evil] President of the German Bishops' Conference and his understanding of the Church.

However, the clarification did not help, because not even the Catholic media were able or willing to quote the Pope properly. Kath Press, the news agency of the Austrian Bishops' Conference headlined as assiduously as secular media: "Church Should Apologize to Homosexuals".

The pains to verify what was allegedly printed exactly by whom, should not be made here. Unless it is easy to verify that - to stay with the example of Austria - Kathpress first media spread the hoax. Previously, the AP has been one of the "three big sisters" among press agencies.

In the media sector, it runs known as, and usually at the expense of a comprehensive and in-depth information: If an international and a national press agency write the same thing, there has hardly been  an editorial examination for veracity. Rather, then,   all of the relevant media of a country write the same content exactly. The result is that it is perceived by citizens as an oppressive "standardized opinion" whether from Neusiedl to Bregenz, Kiefersfelden to Flensburg or from Davos to Basel.

One should be able to expect a correct story  from a Catholic news agency. Otherwise, the question arises as to whether they made a deliberate "misunderstanding". Interestingly,  the misunderstanding in the mass media and agencies fell promptly and reliably within the meaning of the mainstream. The subscribers and fee payers are then a herd of cattle fed propaganda, so that it thinks "correctly".

Fabulous Guests at Catholic Day in Leipzig: The Aberrosexuals

"Sternberg-Fotograf-M-Thomas" Wikicommons
UPDATE 26 May 2016 : On May 26, 2016 MP Volker Beck at Catholic Day in Leipzig  "Leaeve the mosque inthe village - religious politics in 2016.  MP Volker Beck has campaigned for years against the Catholic Church and named a Cardinal Meisner Hatepreacher . On 25 May 2016, Beck demanded the opening of marriage to homosexual couples. The Greens as a party are also represented at Catholic Day, although much of its policy is anti-Catholic and anti-Christian.]

In recent weeks, it's often been discussed, who is at this year's  Catholic Day (25 to 29 may 2016)  and who is not. 

Now, a group seems to be particularly welcome and can not complain about lack of opportunities to appear: the homosexuals. 

Especially pervasive are representatives of various local groups like "Network of Catholic Lesbians."  Like in the bible work group,  "Pray Psalms today - submit a Psalm" or in the workshop "With my God I shoot over walls - in work, spirituality in everyday life, is a source of strength for me or for everyday life. "  

Since the Political must not be neglected, there is also a debate for an opening marriage to same-sex couples. In the panel discussion "Marriage for all? On the issue of equality between homosexual and heterosexual couples " speaks the openly gay Stefan Kaufmann, member (CDU) and Manuela Sabozin of the network of Catholic Lesbians in Essen.

In the workshop "Even lesbians and gay men get older. What is important, what is important to me" include representatives of the Association, "Homosexuals and Church" (HUK).

There is also the discussion "Coming out as a cross-ing. Experience between lesbian women," with the women of the "Network of Catholic Lesbians." 

What role do lesbians in the Church apparatus best serve, "Professional service to the Church - as a lesbian woman exchange among lesbian women."

As a continuous supply there is  "Center Rainbow," which oversees the clubs "Church Initiative from Below,"  "Network of Catholic Lesbians, " "Ecumenical group of homosexuals and Church."  These groups are even organizing a  church service. 

At the event,"Anger at ProfX " the "Lesbian and Gay federation of Germany "will question  gender stereotypes.

The working group "Homosexual and Church" will probably advertise about "Whoever stays true, changes. Spiritual people can not be bent." 

Dr. Michael Brinkschröder of the European Forum of Christian LGBT groups will present "a different view of the Bible."

An "experience for gay men" is on offer in the event "Strong in Faith. Catholic. Homosexual."  On the subject of "Homo- and heterosexual people together" we learn "to live in a relationship" in the workshop.   

Constanze Körner, project manager of Rainbow families, deals with the subject of "How to live in rainbow families?"

Surely, especially progressive things are going on  in "Gay and lesbian worship communities as a basic model." 

Of course, the subject  " transsexualism in the tension between faith and the Bible"  at Catholic Day must  not be missed. 

That these concerns are madness and that such  events are completely unnecessary, or even   harmful to the faith, does not need any further description. The image is that the Catholic Church in Germany is offering, is desolate.  It's a church that is completely losing its Catholic identity. It shows once again: The "Central Committee of German Catholics", the organizer of the Catholic Conference, is working  to destroy the Catholic faith in Germany.

Cologne: Questions of an "Ecumenical Funeral Service" for a Homosexual Protestant in a Catholic Church

Ecumenical Funeral Service for Guido Westerwelle in a Catholic
(Berlin) The "ecumenical memorial service" for the Protestant and professing homosexual, former German Vice Chancellor, Guido Westerwelle, in a Catholic basilica in Cologne raises fundamental questions that go beyond this particular case. What is a church? Why was it built? What is its purpose? Is the church, regardless of denomination, only a service provider whose services one can be taken at will and introduced to an personalized design?  Did religious leaders abuse the death of Westerwelle for de facto recognition of homosexuality by the Catholic Church? The abusive use of churches is not an isolated case, but tends to increase.

"Holy Ground": The Church as sacred

The church is the house of God. It has its origins in the encounter of God with Moses in the burning bush.This was the first direct revelation of God to mankind since the expulsion from paradise. God said to Moses:
"Do not come near! Take off your sandals; because the place where you are standing is holy ground."
The place where God is present, where the Holy Eucharist is celebrated and reserved, is holy ground, and God requires of man a corresponding attitude. To underline this holiness, God called to Moses, take off your shoes.
The Church invites the believer to personal prayer and especially to attend the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. This devotion of the Savior sacrificed on the altar is offered, meant as a help and consolation of the faithful. A church should therefore, as well  the Second Vatican Council says, be beautiful and be suitable for prayer and the sacred act.
Another purpose is not provided. That is, a church may be used for anything else than for visualization, containment and worship of God.

Increasing misuse

Nevertheless, Catholic churches  are being increasingly diverted. The range of promotions ranging from art and photography exhibitions to film locations for films, of Agapes with food and drink, up to real charity food or feeding the poor, and even a game room for a dubious youth ministry. To say nothing of debating by a certain Catholic "reform group." Added to this there are increasingly, "ecumenical" events. What they all have in common is that they have nothing to do with the actual purpose of the church. The church is transformed into a kind of multi-purpose hall, although there are enough other premises, usually already at the nearby parish hall or community center.[!]
The reasons can be speculated. Is it the result of a dwindling faith in the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament? Or is the inappropriate attempt to fill the emptying churches by "attractions"?

Church as a service provider for "beautiful" celebrations

Slopping over from  the Protestant side, this which has even seeped into the Catholic area with an incorrect understanding of the Church and the sacraments. The faithful are not many and they don't want to say anything. Since men love feasts, and the beautiful, to break out of the everyday, one recalls the church. Not without reason it offers - yet the idea itself is available to those who are far from the faith  - the most beautiful festivals in one's life. The importance of these festivals is no longer understood by post-Christian man perhaps, but festivals still please him.
The church is degraded in this perspective, to be a mere service provider for special celebrations and family gatherings. A service provider is ordered and  everything is directed  the way one wants things for himself. Therefore, children are not baptized as soon as possible after birth, so that they can become children of God through the sacrament of baptism. Baptism takes place only when a big party is organized and it best fits the schedule of all the invitees. So it goes with confirmations, to the  wedding and then to the funeral. In confession and anointing of the sick, there is nothing (obvious) to celebrate, which is why it is not by chance that these two sacraments find dwindling attention.

Progression to "ecumenical worship"

So in these special occasions  every kind of person rolls into the Church, who hardly knows the most basic rules of conduct. Many pastors have to be bothered with special needs, because a service provider is  supposed to respond flexibly to the needs of the clientele. At least that is what some  "customers" expect.
The power is inclined in this context to the "ecumenical." What spiritual benefits are there with "ecumenical" worship? The Eucharist is  understood fundamentally differently  between Catholics and Protestants. With this understanding the church is inseparable from its purpose, which is why all church buildings were built and what they are used for. With "ecumenical" church services, things are forced together which do not match and do not belong together. The previously open issues are simply glossed over, and this happens at the expense of the divinely revealed Eucharistic understanding.
Thus also the spiritual benefits and even more the healing effectiveness remain questionable. So why bother?

Concrete example: the "funeral" for Guido Westerwelle

Thus the specific example, because it took place before the eyes of all and thus acts to form opinions. On March 18, a prominent federal politician, Guido Westerwelle died. An incurable disease wrested his life from him at only 54 years old. Westerwelle was born in 1961. He came from a respected, Protestant  family of lawyers. Both parents were (since 1947 from a part of North Rhine-Westphalia) from the part of the land which became Protestant in 1538 in the former "provisional seat of government" of Bonn. Westerwelle himself was also a lawyer.
After "turning" of a government of SPD / FDP government to a CDU / CSU / FDP government, he was in 1983 the first National President of the Young Liberals , the new youth wing of the FDP. He rose to the Federal Executive and in 1994 FDP General Secretary, 1996 Bundestag, 2001 FDP President, 2006 Party Chairman and opposition leader and 2009, finally, Vice Chancellor and Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs. He had only held it for a short while in 2013   when the FDP crashed after its soaring and not make it a place into office in the Bundestag.

Recognized homosexual

His homosexuality was only rumored about  early on. Westerwelle was "outed" however, relatively late. It happened in  2004 during Angela Merkel's 50th birthday. Westerwelle took his male partner with him to participate. His picture made the headline made ​​on July 21, in the newspaper. Another guest of the birthday celebration was Cardinal Karl Lehmann, then President of the German Bishops' Conference. There were times when a Catholic bishop would have stood in protest against such an ostentatious displays of homosexuality and gone. Lehmann remained in what could be interpreted as an indirect approval.
2010 went Westerwelle for a "partnering" according to the Civil Partnership Act. The law of the red-green reign recognizes homosexual relationships and gives them a legal framework. Westerwelle was at that time Minister and Vice Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, for which his homosexuality was given wide media publicity. His manner of life is to be seen next to other public figures, as the most effective advertising for homosexuality.

"Funeral" in a Catholic Church

Although Westerwelle was Protestant, an ecumenical memorial service was held on April 2nd and in the Catholic Basilica of the Holy Apostles in Cologne. Why an ecumenical memorial service? Why in a Catholic church? Is Church the same church, just because they are so named? It was one of "ecumenical" confusion and relativism of the Catholic Church  in which this understanding was abetted.
But there are many more questions: Is the liturgy for the dead or the living? As is known, the deceased was a member of the Evangelical Church in Rhineland , a Prussian Union Church, in which both Lutherans and Calvinists are included. For whom was the celebration organized?  So the fact that the highest dignitaries of the Republic and therefore besides Catholics, Protestants would be present among the alleged participants?
And why on the one hand in a Catholic church when a Protestant pastor officiated the "funeral"?Because it was Prelate Karl Jüsten, director of the Catholic Office of the German bishops in Berlin who gave the homily, who knew Westerwelle since "early youth"? That sounds too modest, especially compared with the appearance of a de facto recognition of homosexuality by the Catholic Church, which was mediated on April 2 by prelate Jüsten and through the municipality. The personal youthful friendship especially has nothing to do with the liturgy. Jüsten left in his homily that which was essential in view of the strong media presence, not to resonate the slightest hint of criticism of Westerwelle's homosexuality. But on the contrary. He turned explicitly to Westerwelle's "man". This sat in the front pew next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Homosexuality is through Guido Westerwelle, given high recognition,  also beyond death, in the official minutes of the Federal Republic of Germany and is not only accepted as "self-evident", but poignantly prominent.

Abuse of the Church

The decision to hold the funeral of a gay Protestant in a Catholic church, although there is no shortage of Protestant churches, sounds at best,  that the secular criteria were more important than religious and spiritual. In the worst case it should involve a scandal in the highest church circles considering the public de facto acceptance and promotion of homosexuality   in the Catholic Church. Whether one way or the other, no one seems to have noticed the contradiction between Westerwelle's homosexuality and the Catholic Church, in any case no one disturbed. Not even the Catholic Church representatives.
Numerous media had already converted the death and funeral as a promotional tool for homosexuality. The CDU politician and father Lothar Späth, who died on the same day, was devoted significantly less space  by the media in their coverage.
The "ecumenical memorial service" for Guido Westerwelle has become the obvious example of the abuse of a Catholic church and the liturgy as a service. Westerwelle was practicing homosexual and lived as such, in the state of serious sin, and he was a Protestant. He connected very little with the Catholic Church and the Catholic faith.
What kind of healing effectiveness an "ecumenical memorial service" have? She has a Requiem. If one wanted to send the means of grace to the dead, should he be in purgatory, then this would be possible by a Holy Mass. They are also facing as intention also a non-Catholics. But that does not seem to have been desired. Which brings us back to the question already asked, according to what criteria was the celebration aligned oriented, how was it aligned.

Was the Catholic Church just the "beautiful" scenery for a "beautiful" ceremony? Should the high politics of West German "consensus" be demonstrated? Is the church only as a stooge of the government, as an expression of the Enlightenment and Protestant state church?  Has the Catholic faith's shrinkage gone so far that external aspects are more important than spiritual? In other words, that a call can be sincerely traced from the government district?

The language of canon law

The Code of Canon Law provides important clues and binding:
Can. 1205 - Sacred places are those which are designated for worship or burial of the faithful by dedication or blessing, as the liturgical books prescribe it.
Can. 1210 Only those things which serve the exercise or promotion of worship, piety, or religion are permitted in a sacred place; anything not consonant with the holiness of the place is forbidden. In an individual case, however, the ordinary can permit other uses which are not contrary to the holiness of the place.
Can. 1211 Sacred places are violated by gravely injurious actions done in them with scandal to the faithful, actions which, in the judgment of the local ordinary, are so grave and contrary to the holiness of the place that it is not permitted to carry on worship in them until the damage is repaired by a penitential rite according to the norm of the liturgical books.
Can. 1214 By the term church is understood a sacred building designated for divine worship to which the faithful have the right of entry for the exercise, especially the public exercise, of divine worship.
It may therefore be that everything that has happened on April 2nd in Cologne's Holy Apostles Basilica, is done in accordance with the German bishops. Nevertheless, questions remain. Was that appropriate and correct? And above all: what benefits does it have for salvation?
The "ecumenical memorial service" for Guido Westerwelle is just an example, however, establishes a public example of an abusive church use, a dubious understanding of sacred space, the sacraments and necessity for salvation. A study of the issues raised and a rediscovery and recovery of the space of ​​worship, as Pope Benedict XVI. had demanded, is needed.
