  1. He should’ve just waited for ENDA then sued.

  2. Sad thought it is, he should never have got involved with these wicked people in the first place. His life will only get better from here on in.

    I have no sympathy for the heartbreak and pain. He chose to live in the closet and worse, allowed his cult to oppress him that clearly enabled him to lie about his true identity. I’m glad he’s evolved and I wish him well but really, 20 years of kow-towing to the hateful rhetoric of the Roman cult is beyond the pale.

      Well said.

    Only the Catholic church loses, again, and again, and again. That crackpot religious will be dead in a few decades – nobody will want to be associated with it. Catholic followers are leaving left, right and center over all sorts of issues, including the homophobia of the Catholic leaders.

    1. The attacks on freedom of thought start with language. Those who do not resign themselves to accept “homophilia” (the theoretical appreciation of homosexual relations) are charged with “homophobia” (etymologically, the “fear of homosexuality”). This must be very clear: those who are made strong by the inspired word and live in the “fear of God” are not afraid of anything, except perhaps the stupidity toward which, Bonhoeffer said, we are defenseless. We are now even charged sometimes with the incredibly arbitrary accusation of “racism”: a word that, among other things, has nothing to do with this issue, and in any case is completely extraneous to our doctrine and our history.

        Ray, here’s your assignment from a former teacher of two years in a Catholic school, dear: What are the first ten words of the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution? You see, in America, the Constitution is the Supreme law of the land. Not some book of scripture, and — brace yourself — not even an alleged supernatural being. You really need a hug.

      2. You live in the fear of Gaad but are not afraid of anything? So you admit Gaad is nothing? You should be afraid of your own stupidity, certainly.

  5. Not sure if I could have worked in Catholic Education knowing their attitudes on LGBT people. By his presence and contribution he was implicit in the destructive message that the church teaches. He contributed to the anguish and loss of self esteem that many LGBT kids experience for his own personal gain. I’m glad he finally decided to quit living a lie but he really needs to apologize to all the kids that were screwed up by Catholic education in that high school.

    1. ‘LGBT people’ – ‘LGBT kids’ – a label you label your self with – there is no such thing .We are all human beings – whither you choose to commit adultery, take part in disordered sexual practices, pretend you are a woman etc – it’s free will, and a choice .The wrong choice as it happens .There is a right choice :

      The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

      1. Do you have a mirror in your home? If not, I suggest you buy a dozen of them.

      2. The number of men and women who have deep-seated religionist delusions is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial, since they inevitably choose to force their delusions on others. They must be treated with compassion and sensitivity but not respect, as they – the more strident ones, anyway – seldom deserve it.


    Big news eh !

    Adultery , Homosexual practices,killing the unborn – The Church’s teaching is unchangeable ,has not changed , will not changed – get over it !!

    “Upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it”

      “WITH A MARRIED WOMAN”?! Ray, Ray, Ray, what can I say?

      “The Church’s teaching has not changed” Sad. You win. The ignorance of history contest. I’m not even gonna waste my time.

      1. Quite. Nothing seems to change when you depend on historical ignorance and amnesia.

    2. You forgot eating shellfish and pork, and wearing mixed fibres. Presumably you’ve “got over it”?

      Why do Christians ever think quoting from their Big Book of Multiple Choice is going to impress anyone? Since you’re making this stuff up and re-translating it every five minutes, perhaps you should try coming up with a version of this quotation that doesn’t read like it’s reporting some deluded nutjob who’s scared that Satan’s planning on unscrewing his front door and weaponising it.

    4. thee church is the embodyment of hell, eg responsible for the hate of Jews that led to the holocaust. Responsible for the xtiaan crusades to convert the muslims . 10 million murdered as “they came with sword in one hand and cross in another. When they left even the animals were slaughtered

    5. “The Church’s teaching is unchangeable ,has not changed , will not changed”

      That’s funny, I seem to recall the church changing their mind on a lot of issues like equal rights for women and the owning of slaves.

      It’s been said many times that if a religion cannot adapt itself to society then it will die. If the Church doesn’t change it’s teachings then it will die and you will find yourself alone at church in the near future.

      Religion is a ball and chain and a chastity belt, nothing more.
      I hope you break free of this prison soon :)

    bc heterosexuals never ever have sex in public toilets. Does it turn you on to think about all those gay people cumming in public toilets Keith? How do you decorate your closet?

  8. Aww, bless. Thanks Keith my beloved – another cherishable example of your inductive reasoning. How do you manage to remain so stale? It’s quite an achievement.

  9. catgholic church – the pricks of America their sex starved priests rape kids left and right and when a good man comes out he has to resign or get fired

    The sooner the monstrosity of the western world is dead and buttied in cow dung the better
