What the polish priest did on Saturday while reprehensible and gives the true meaning of scandal, it is providential for Pope Francis for now he knows first hand what so many of bishops and priests are facing in the United States: the radical gay culture and lifestyle trying to infiltrate and change the Church to make it like all other forms of liberal Protestantism which actually is godless secularism.
The perception, whether right or wrong, that Pope Francis has given to the world is that he doesn't care about the sins that people commit; he only cares about the people themselves. I personally don't buy into this spin. He like, all faithful Catholics, loves sinners but hates sin.
The problem with the Polish priest is that he loves his sin and wants his sin to define who he is and thus in loving him everyone is to love his sin. At the root of his sin is a desperate, angry narcissism quite prevalent in the radical gay lifestyle. It goes against nature for he now establishes himself as a god and neglects the laws of nature the true God has established. This only leads to further disorder.
In many places throughout the USA there are legal battles with men and women who work for the Church, usually in our schools, who come out of the closet like this Polish priest in order to "revolutionize" the Church with acceptance of the radical gay lifestyle to include the redefinition of marriage along the lines of the Supreme Court.
It happened in Macon as it has elsewhere and it is divisive to the Catholic community and the community at large when it happens and places the clergy in the middle as they become demonized if they hold up the Church's teaching as we are required to do and should gladly do.
In other words, it appears that Pope Francis now has his own Flint Dollar (the music director who worked at our Catholic High School in Macon and tried to change the Church's outdated gender role teachings by getting "married" to his same sex partner). This might be quite eye opening for the Holy Father!
