As some may recall, the "Holy Families" group posted a video of several people identified as "gay saints" recently and Mary Hunt was one of those identified as having achieved sainthood.
Now, she castigates the Holy See for its recent instruction and calls for, (who could have imagined?). a rebellion, a resistance, a "stonewall"! (this sounds awfully familiar around St. Louis these days)
She says the following about the Holy See regarding "the document":
...the actual text of the document is irrelevant; dictatorships always rely more on self-censorship through fear and intimidation than actual punishment to accomplish their goals.So touching and full of love...but there is more:
[The document]...is really nothing more than an effort to link the criminal activity of pedophile priests with homosexuality and to distract from the reprehensible behavior of bishops who covered up their misconduct. This is an absurd gambit on the part of the Vatican. Homosexuality has no relationship to child sexual abuse.Did the John Jay report show that roughly 80% of the "child" sexual abuse cases occurred with post-pubescent males? Is that not homosexual? If not, what does one call it... a disoriented or frustrated heterosexuality? A different "values" system?
But maybe this is the crux of her "issues" with the Church?
This scandal has made transparent an untenable “kyriarchal” system—a model of church that locates power, both sacramental and temporal, in the hands of a few men who literally lord over the laity, speaking and acting in the name of all believers when in fact they are but a tiny percentage of the community.Apparently then, Jesus really didn't intend to structure an hierarchical Church as the Church would have us believe and as faithful Catholics do believe...
