  • A dastardly topic, but worth reviewing.

    Here's a story about a little Scottish, Jesuit queer, pioneer.  (I hope you'll agree, he couldn't have been Irish ;)).

    Note: This photo is from the 1980s, but check-out the demonic hand-signs, that mean: 'I Love You Satan'.

    Pioneer Gay Priest's Story "Taking a Chance on God" Documents Life of Fr. John McNeill

    Taking A Chance on God, a new documentary on the life of gay pioneer priest John McNeill is screening at festivals around the world. The film highlights McNeill’s role as hero and pioneer of the international LGBT civil rights movement.
    An inspiring portrait, Taking a Chance on God follows the extraordinary life of 86-year-old John McNeill from his Buffalo, NY boyhood through his experiences as a POW in Nazi Germany, Vietnam peace promoter, leading LGBT-equality advocate, and loving partner of 46 years to Charles Chiarelli.

    McNeill, the author of groundbreaking works of gay spirituality, founder of the LGBT Catholic group Dignity/New York, and a gay community leader during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, refused to be silenced by the Vatican on LGBT issues, which resulted in his expulsion from the priesthood.  Chronicling McNeill’s love for the Catholic Church, the LGBT community, his Jesuit brothers, and his partner, Taking a Chance on God is a powerful story of faith, love and perseverance in the face of oppression and rejection.
    McNeill’s groundbreaking writings, including his 1976 book The Church and Homosexual, have been translated into many languages and inspired the founding of Dignity/USA, an influential organization for LGBT Catholics. This year, five Dignity chapters are celebrating 40 years of ministry with LGBT Catholics, including New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, and San Diego.
    In 1977 and in 1983, McNeill was silenced for speaking and writing on issues of homosexuality by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, currently Pope Benedict XVI. For “pertinacious disobedience” to this order of silence, McNeill was eventually expelled from the Jesuit order in April 1987

    If you check the web on this Priestly queer pioneer, you can see the Judaic media has put a lot of resources into promoting his "Luv' ministry. He is destined for newChurch sainthood.

    John J. McNeill (September 2, 1925 – September 22, 2015) was ordained as a Jesuit priest[1] in 1959 and subsequently worked as a psychotherapist and an academic theologian, with a particular reputation within the field of Queer Theology.

    And the final kicker is... he's was a "pope Francis" queer.

    It seems, the 470 year English phrase from William Turner, in his book Rescuing of Romish Fox is appropriate:

      "Byrdes of on kynde and color flok and flye allwayes together."

    "Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it underfoot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

    It demonstrates how deeply the church had been damaged prior to V2.  He must have entered the Jesuits around 1950 and through his 8 or 9 years of formation they never suspected his proclivities ??  I find that hard to believe.

    I think the rot goes deeper and further back than most people would want to believe.
