Reverend Paul Kalchik, the Roman Catholic priest at Resurrection Parish in Chicago who held an "exorcism" with parishioners in which they burned a rainbow flag that had once been hung in the church, has been relieved of his duties.

"The archdiocese insisted that Kalchik's removal had nothing to do with the rainbow flag-burning 'exorcism.'"

Right, it wasn't the hate, or the selectivity regarding which passages of the buybull to follow or ignore, it's because the flag burning was aimed at the rcc's abuse of power in a sexual context scandal. He was being pretty directly critical of the church, not merely anti gay.

Dear Messenger of Love redux: Your white supremacist military academy education is failing you again. The rcc has no "gay" priests. "Gay" has a meaning. Try to learn the first thing about what you're going on about. The rcc's misogyny and homophobia and authoritarianism has attracted too many of the wrong sort of clergypersons - nuns too in many cases - who are psychosexually twisted and abusive in one way or another. Some of these appear to be homosexually inclined, as you are, reparative therapay victim. They are not gay men.

Gay men have sex with men. Pedophiles have sex with children. Two different things, altogether.

If the children are boys then the pedophile is gay. Gay pedophiles (gay priests) have sex with boys. So not two different things at all.

Actually the main locus of child sex abuse is in the extended nuclear family, most often older, male relatives abusing younger, female ones. Throw in the violent raping of women in all manner of contexts and you know that the perpetrators of sexual violence are, in fact, associated with one particular sexual orientation.

Also, the rcc abuse of power scandal was not really about pedophilia. You're using the term uncritically.

That's off topic. The main focus of child sex abuse in the Church is gay priests.

Yes. Men who molest girls are strraight and men who molest boys are straight too. I read it in the rainbow handbook.
You can try to twist what I said, but it won't change the truth. I said nothing about girls. And child molestation is not about sexuality.........it's about power. It is only manifested though sexual activity, and has nothing whatever to do with the gender of the child.

Yes. Of course. Women who molest girls and men who molest boys are straight pedophiles.
This all really boils down to the Rainbow Rule #1: Gay is GOOD, Straight is BAD.

False.

The main focus of child sex abuse in the church is child sex abuse in the church.

Being gay doesn't make someone a sexual predator any more than being straight makes someone perfectly innocent. Homosexuals are attracted to people of the same sex... pedophiles are attracted to children... they are NOT the same thing, and trying to make sexual abuse a "gay" thing is just good old fashioned homophobic lies and religious garbage.

When it's boys who are the victims of sexual abuse then IT IS a gay thing. When it's girls who are sexually abused then it's a straight thing. Unless you think it's straight men who sexually abuse boys.

False.

How about men who molest children are pedophiles. Period.

Their adult sexual orientation or the gender of their victims is irrelevant, as molesting children is equally as bad whether the victim is the same sex or the opposite sex.... although the opposite sex can sometimes be worse if female victims become pregnant as a result of rape.

No one is claiming that gay men never do anything wrong. What we're saying is when adult men sexually abuse children, it isn't because they are gay or straight, it's because they are sexual predators. The constant implication that ALL gays are sexual predators is a complete lie, and a form of abuse in itself. Being gay doesn't mean anyone is a sexual abuser any more than being straight means they are automatically innocent.

Stop blaming child sexual abuse on GAYS and start blaming it on PEDOPHILES. Clearly OUTSIDE the Catholic church, the vast majority of sexual abuse is perpetrated on victims of the OPPOSITE sex, but no one is blaming that on heterosexuality. Have some freaking honesty and integrity and stop being ignorant homophobes. Or... continue as you are and continue to fall apart.

Oh wait i stand corrected. Just read through the Rainbow Rulebook and I do see where it says all men who molest boys are straight and all men who molest girls are straight. All gay men are good and only have consensual sex with other gay men. Sorry, you're right and I'm wrong.

False.

When boys OR girls are victims of sexual abuse, it is a pedophile thing... it is neither a gay thing or a straight thing. The blame is on the abusers, not an entire orientation....

Your only focus is all things male homosexual, in this case mostly self hating, closet case priests and teens, although a lot of girls have also been victimized in the rcc, particularly if you look at centuries rather than decades.

The larger issue is who the perpetrators of sexual violence tend to be - misogynistic, authoritarian, psychosexually unhealthy str8 males. Yet you "oddly" don't defame heterosexuality on this basis the way you try to defame (male) homosexuality across the board. And it's no mystery why you are obsessed, closet case.

I'm learning so much from the Rainbow Handbook. Another thing I recently leaned was that no one can tell a person that they're gay or not gay, it's up to the person to say for themselves what they are. This rule apparently only applies to straight people though. If you're gay then you can tell a straight person that they're gay if you get mad at them.

Actually, that is not true. Most child sex sbuse happens with the nonbiological parent.
No, it's much more common among blood relatives than you wish to let on, but in any event, idiot, I said within the "extended" nuclear family. Hey moron, that would include uncles and cousins and adoptive parents...because that's what "extended" means in this context.

So you were not making a point, except that you wish to project child sex abuse out from the nuclear family and only only homosexual males. Because you're sick and stupid.
