Jesuit Leader Slams Gay Priest Ban
http://www.365gay.com/newscon05/09/093005jesuits.htm

A top Jesuit official has been contacting leaders of the Roman Catholic Church to protest a soon-to-be-released Vatican document that is expected to reinforce the teaching that gays are not welcome in the priesthood.

The Rev. Gerald Chojnacki, head of the New York Province of the Society of Jesus, said in a letter to his priests that he was asking bishops to tell Vatican officials who are drafting the policy "of the great harm this will cause many good priests and the Catholic faithful."

Chojnacki wrote in the letter, dated Monday, that he had participated in the funerals of several gay Jesuit clergy over the last few years.



wonder how long he'll have his job

1. Not long
Not long at all.

He'll be summoned to the Vatican, there'll be an announcement, he'll be transferred to Arizona, he'll never be heard from again.

Don't forget that Pope Benny was, before he got the Top Job, the head of the office within the Vatican that was formerly known as The Inquisition.

Sound familiar?

2. My uncle is a priest
and a die hard liberal. This doesn't surprise me at all. The Jesuits are very liberal and open minded.

My uncle belongs to a group of priests who lobby for the ordination of women and the acceptance of gays by the church.
