|A book of pro-gay homilies? Can't wait to use it!|
Here's what the article tells us about the priest, Fr. Jan van Kilsdank, S.J. who wrote the homilies which were compiled into a book by Fr. Pierre Valkering who presented it to the pope:
[Fr. van Kilsdank] became well-known on the gay night scene in Amsterdam and personally accompanied some 200 young AIDS sufferers to their deaths, with a great deal of warmth and pastoral care. There is nothing wrong with that; on the contrary. But Van Kilsdonk went a great deal beyond that, justifying their lifestyle and berating the Church for its lack of openness to their tendencies.
He was even to sign a petition launched in 1987 by a Dutch gay rights group, COC, asking the Minister of Justice to decriminalize sexual contact by and with young people under 16, recalls Pascal Beukers of Katholiek Nieuwsblad. It was in 2004 that Van Kilsdonk told the gay support group Mannenwerk (“Men’s work”) that homosexuality is not “an abnormality or a disorder” but “a brainwave of God.”And there's more from the article:
According to Dutch Vatican journalist Andrea Vreede, the fact that Valkering was allowed personally to present his compilation to Pope Francis is “remarkable.” “Every day, the Pope is overwhelmed by requests. It is he who decides to answer them or not. The presentation of this book was suggested to him, he thought about it and deliberately said ‘yes’,” she commented.Oy vey! What can one say? A bad Jesuit's homilies justifying same-sex lust presented to a Jesuit pope busy telling the flock over and over that good is evil and evil is good. But to affirms this priest promoting homosexuality as a "brainwave of God" rather than the lust described in Sacred Scripture. It boggles the mind and distresses the heart!
It's all well and good to accompany a dying person on his final journey. That, indeed, is a work of mercy. But if that accompaniment means affirming a person in sin so he never repents, it's not only false mercy, but more probably leads the soul to eternal damnation through the sin of presumption. God have mercy on the priest who presented the book, the deceased priest who wrote the homilies, and on the pope for once more advancing confusion over truth. God help us!
