I applaud Christians of this kind! I may not agree with his faith based on Hebrew mythology, but I celebrate his right to believe that way and respect his admirable honesty in the face of enormous opposition from his own ranks. A true Christian!

I too applaud him and urge him to view the "Clobber Passages." The is no telling of the reaction he is going to get from a Church that has been mis educated about homosexuality or even what it means. As the evidence mounts about being 'born that way', I was surprise to read Jesus say in Matthew19:10-12 "born that way."

Josh is an example of the uneducated idiots out there. Why don't you get the chip off your shoulder and pick up a book ?
Thank you Gary Meier for your bravery and honesty.

Just another example of a closer case going into the priesthood to try and curb his appetite for d!ck, probably young d!ck, and to hide his shame. Guess the strain became too much for him.
What's a "closer case"?

You're the only one in this chat room; sugar

Because of the incriminating subject matter; there would be few; if any; accurate books on the subject
.
so I guess you'll have to start a parade to meet others with common interests

Well, then maybe you need therapy for you're unresolved trauma. It's obvious that you do, posting on here day after day, under different names agreeing to your bigoted posts. It's really fking boring and tired.

NEW RULE: Anyone who posts here without being registered does not exist and their posts should accordingly be ignored as befitting all trolls.

I am sick of these topics being taken over by trolls who have no other objective than to insult, belittle and ridicule gays. What they post consists mostly of slurs and outrageous untruths. Their posts are bereft of any logic or reason, and they seem to get some weird kick out of vocalizing filth.(Makes you wonder, doesn't it?)

Personally, I pledge never to respond to any unregistered name on here. It won't stop them, but if we all do the same it will diminish the pleasure they take from rattling cages.

No I don't, but you however, molesting little boys and so, should seek therapy ASAP.
Sorry, POS not interested, I don't do 'little boys'. I like 'bigger' men.

Don't hate on the truth Uve, just except and enjoy.
get over it, there is no truth and there is no hate..The only truth is that you're sticking up for the bigoted moron making hate speech. If you feel I'm hostile toward you so be it, you're no better than he is.

This is the same priest who bragged about never giving a poor person money. That statement, of course, came after he checked his Iphone a second or third time. Check his own webpage. In every parish, he not only formed a Youth Group, but also, took the Group on trips to places like Toronto and Cologne. I have a real issue with people canonizing someone because they claim to be homosexual. You can be a bad person who happens to be gay.
