For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace,
as in all churches of the saints.
I Corinthians 14:33
The Vatican on Saturday dismissed a gay priest from his Holy See job on the eve of a major Church meeting for a highly public coming out that challenged the Roman Catholic teaching that homosexual acts are a sin.
Monsignor Krzysztof Charamsa, a Polish theologian, had worked at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican’s doctrinal arm, since 2003. He was also sacked from his jobs teaching theology at pontifical universities in Rome.
Charamsa, 43, told Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper that he was gay and had a partner in an interview published on Saturday. The Church does not consider homosexuality a sin but priests, whether heterosexual or gay, are meant to be celibate.
Charasma also held a news conference with his partner and gay activists at a Rome restaurant. They had planned a demonstration in front of the Vatican but changed the venue several hours before it was due to have started.
The Vatican said the dismissal had nothing to do with Charasma’s reflections on his personal life, which it said “merit respect”.
What does the fact that he worked at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith since 2003 tell you! And he’s been teaching theology. Bet those classes were simply fabulous.
This active sodomite did not just wake up last week and say, “heck, screw my vows, I’m going to hook up with a receptacle/partner and call a press conference so I can make ‘an enormous noise for the good of the Church.'” And no one else in the CDF had a clue? Right.
Can someone tell me exactly what about this disingenuous, vow breaking, sodomite deviant’s personal life “merits respect”?
