THE SERVANT GENERAL
A GAY MAFIA?
November 6, 2015
A gay mafia at the highest levels of our Church? A fight for
the soul of our Church?
We hope and pray for the best but we cannot be naive and suddenly
be knocked out by the worst. The American clerical sex-abuse
scandal already cost the Church in America US$2.9 billion,
according to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. Others
claim that is understated, and that the actual cost has been
a staggering $3.99 billion! Unimaginable, but true.
The Protestant Churches have already gone the way of the culture
of death and full embrace of the gay sub-culture. So we see
that it can happen and has already happened to centuries-old
institutions of faith, to Christian Churches, which came out
of the one Church established by Jesus. Now those same insidious
designs and maneuverings have entered into our Catholic Church.
The Catholic Church in the Western world is already very liberal.
This includes clerics, religious and laity. Many Western parishes
and chanceries are dominated by liberals, many of whom have
outright sympathy and support for the gay culture. They have
an agenda and they are advancing it.
What are we to do? We must know what is going on. Again, we
must not naively think this cannot happen in our Catholic
Church. Then we must resist the culture of death, radical
feminist ideologies, reproductive health and gender ideologies,
secular humanism, cultural Marxism, Modernism, and all the
other isms of the evil one. We must not be lulled into political
correctness. We must speak the truth about sin and repentance.
We must not be silenced.
Pray intently, faithful Catholics. And proclaim the authentic
gospel of salvation in Jesus. Engage the enemy, without and
within the Church.
the ‘gay mafia’ behind the Synod on the Family?
By a priest who cares about the Church
November 3, 2015 (CatholicVoice) -- Is
a homosexual agenda unduly influencing the outcome of the
Synod on the family? It’s a question
that needs to be raised because snippets gleaned from the
Vatican in recent years seem to point in this direction. But
before we explore this in more detail we need to underline
the following points:
Our faith demands we respect people of same sex attraction.
I am repulsed when homophobic terms like 'sodomite' are bandied
around internet forums or people’s lives discussed in
such a way that it robs them of dignity. There are many people
of same sex attraction in the church whose lives and faith
are worthy of admiration.
We should recognise that the
presence of homosexual priests affects the church in different
ways. Some are true celibates who, despite
having an inclination towards same sex attraction, honour
their ordination vows. Though its painful to admit, other
homosexual priests are sexually active, and therefore flout
church teaching, but they nevertheless uphold the moral standards
of wider society. Within this group of sexually active homosexual
priests will be those who are secretly partnered and monogamous
as well as those who are more promiscuous. And finally there
are deviants. Those who don't limit their sexual behavior
to consenting adults but who hit on the young and vulnerable.
The first group of celibate homosexual priests are no problem
to the church, the next group are un-repentent sinners causing
scandal but not a menace to society. The third group are clearly
abusive and dangerous.
Impact of homosexual priests on the Church
Having made this distinction, between differing ways in which
homosexual clergy deal with their sexuality, we may ask how
the issue may impact on church decisions. But let us be clear.
The purpose of this article is to shine a light on a possible
agenda not to point fingers at any individual. Being favourable
to a cause is not evidence that anybody is themselves part
The Catholic Church has struggled
to navigate the modern world in the wake of the sexual revolution
and Vatican II. It is no secret that vocations,
in particular, have been hit to the point of there being a
dire shortage of priests in the West. And what tended to happen
is that during the 1970's and 1980's the priesthood became
an attractive option for gay men. And because the church was
desperately short of vocations it was willing to turn a blind
eye, so long as scandal was avoided. Thus a disproportionate
number of gay men entered the church and settled into its
ecclesial structures during the latter half of the 20th Century.
Most were young men raised in devout Catholic families at
a time when homosexuality was taboo. By taking holy orders
they not only ducked awkward questions from relatives and
friends but also found a spiritual outlet for their confusion
and, in some cases, guilt and self loathing. Seminary proved
a happy home for such as these because they no longer battled
alone but came into contact with like minded people. A deep
fraternity built up between them and forged what would become
an entire, secret subculture within the clerical ranks of
the Catholic Church.
Some of these gay men were able to overcome their sexual urges
and became truly celibate. But others found that they lacked
the requisite self control. How could they remain within the
church? The answer was to keep sexual activity amongst themselves
to ensure that scandal was largely avoided. Coded language
and certain looks were all it took for those interested in
sexual activity to identify themselves to each other at clergy
meetings and conventions. As regards the goal of protecting
the church from public scandal the approach worked. The lay
faithful remained ignorant as to the sexual lives of these
men who were themselves content to remain closeted. Sure one
or two occasionally left the priesthood to join the ‘gay
scene’ but by and large things ticked over.
The Sex Abuse Crisis and the Homosexual Subculture
Problems arose only when the wicked amongst them did not keep
to the unspoken rules. They began seducing the lay faithful
and, in the worse instances, forced themselves onto young
boys. We finally arrive at the crimes of the infamous sex
abuse crisis. Independent studies show that the crimes of
sex abuse were not so much bedeviled but homosexual in nature.
Over 90% of the cases were instances of gay men hitting on
post pubescent boys.
Naturally other gay priests, being decent men, were horrified
at this behavior. But fear stemming from their own hidden
lives prevented them from taking action. Priests who were
themselves part of the gay subculture, or at least aware of
it and accepting of it, found themselves open to blackmail
and accusations of a certain degree of hypocrisy. The scandalous
consequence was that priests, who should have been defrocked,
were instead moved to another parish. What we now know in
retrospect was that the gay network of priests looked after
its own, even its most deplorable members, for fear of widespread
exposure and scandal.
Clerical Careers and the Homosexual Subculture
Meanwhile the better behaved homosexual priests were growing
older and gaining preferment. How hard it must have been for
them to watch the world change its own attitude to homosexuality
whilst they remained (and still remain) closeted. These men
found themselves unable to join the party. This impossible
tension between public face and private life came to light
when the Cardinal Archbishop of Scotland caused scandal. Though
he proved a strong defender of Church teaching in the public
square it transpired he had also been hitting on seminarians
When you consider the impossibility of these men’s situation
you begin to see why very close bonds formed between them.
It is hardly surprising that nepotism may have crept in. The
homosexual subculture became not only a social space but also
a recruitment body. Not least for reasons
of self preservation. And the higher these tortured souls
rose in the church, the greater the fear of exposure must
be. Thus it was that a ‘Gay
Mafia’ sprang up and homosexual clerics found and created
for themselves influential friends in high places.
The Vatican and the Gay Mafia
That is how one might image a homosexual subculture was formed.
Now to the piecing together snippets of evidence from the
In 2005 Pope Benedict
asked the faithful to pray for him that he may not flee for
“fear of the wolves". He also spoke
of a “powerful gay lobby” at work in the highest
levels of the Vatican. Pope Francis has referred to it too,
so we know it exists. Furthermore, Pope Benedict’s
instinct, in the wake of the abuse crisis, was to insist that
men of “deep seated homosexual tendency” should
be barred from the priesthood. A suggestion that he understood
the true nature of the sex abuse crimes was not, in fact,
pedophilic but homosexual.
Pope Benedict’s conclusion, unsurprisingly, was unpopular
with the secular press who still refuse to acknowledge the
overwhelming evidence about the homosexual nature of the abuses.
And so Pope Benedict was pilloried for categorically upholding
the Church’s doctrine on homosexuality. It is likely
that Pope Benedict’s actions galvanized the powerful
“Gay Mafia” to act against him. Clearly the secular
world and its media, in the wake of the rainbow revolution,
was in their pocket.
The St Gallen Group and the Gay Mafia
Now in 2015, Cardinal Danneels of Belgium, accused of covering
up sexual abuse by priests, has publicly announced his role
in the covert "St. Gallen Group", which he refers
to as a “mafia group”! This is a cabal who plotted
behind the scenes, not only to trick Benedict into abdication,
but also to put Francis on the throne. Could they be the wolves
to whom Benedict referred? And what is their relationship,
if any, to this shadowy Gay Mafia? Whether implicated or not,
and this writer has no evidence either way, the
St Gallen group members are certainly clamouring for a volte
face in the Church’s doctrine and pastoral care of homosexuals.
And there is also support for such a cause outside of the
St. Gallen group. In the West there are Cardinals of a certain
generation who support a softening of tone in this regard.
Archbishop Vincent Nichols, for example, defended the controversial
“Soho Gay Masses” at some cost to himself and
is on public record demanding more generous language as regards
homosexuality. Whether such men are part of any lobby or subculture
themselves cannot be known. But what we do see is that they
certainly support the cause in general.
The Gay Mafia and the Synod on the Family
Regarding the shadowy St. Gallen Mafia, questions are now
being raised about Pope Francis’s relationship with
this group, and its influence on the Synod. Cardinal Danneels
has publicly admitted that Pope Francis was their favoured
candidate at the 2005 and 2013 Conclaves. Is Pope Francis
"their man", as they themselves claim. This appears
at least a feasible possibility given how many of the St Gallen
cardinals were sprung out of retirement and have been given
a voice by the Holy Father at the two Synods on the Family
. This begs a further question: why
are these Synods on the family saying little new or of value
to actual families but obsessing about homosexuality? Could
it be the influence of the Gay Lobby? This
scenario needs to be considered by any watching the Synod
Are we in fact witnessing the
demands of a clerical homosexual subculture being imposed
on the Catholic Church at large? Is the demand for a softening
of language and rules to placate those, who like the recently
self-outed Fr. Charasma, have one foot in the Church and another
in the gay scene? Is the Gay Mafia now influencing the doctrine
and pastoral principles of the Church instead of bishops and
priests faithful to the Gospel and Magisterium of the church?
If so, we face a very grave crisis indeed. It
is entirely possible.
The difficulty for homosexual clerics seeking to overturn
the doctrine and pastoral practice of the Church, of course,
is that such a campaign is so clearly at odds with the Tradition
of the church in all ages and the crystal clear message of
Scripture. This is why we are witnessing the
division of the Synod into opposing camps. The Gay Mafia may
wield great power at present in the high counsels of the Church
but there are still brave cardinals, bishops and priests resisting
them, most notably in Africa and Asia. Thus the fight for
the soul of the church is on. The Gay Mafia want a change
of teaching at best but will settle, one suspects, for a shift
of pastoral practice under the guise of a rather dishonest
understanding of mercy. The true defenders
of the faith are having none of it for they see clearly that
a move to betray our Lord’s Gospel is underway.
If this article has put the jigsaw together properly we must
surmise that the sex abuse crisis is not over for the Church.
The secular and Catholic media’s failure to report it
accurately, and an over focus on paedophilia not homosexuality
meant that sexually active gay men hiding behind dog collars
remain free to betray their vows as priests. Having avoided
exposure so far they have grown in confidence to the point
they may even have called this Synod in the first place, not
to speak of family life but to fight for their cause. What
is chilling as we watch the second Synod unfold is that high
ranking voices in the Vatican are confirming that the question
of Holy Communion for divorced and re-married is a smoke-screen
and that the homosexuality is the Synod’s true agenda.
